Here’s where and when you can buy the PS5

Update February 25th, 8:03AM ET: Sony’s PlayStation 5 with the disc drive is currently available for purchase at Target, while supplies last. You can find more information here.

Sony’s PlayStation 5 is available now. Due to the pandemic and high demand for the PS5, retailers such as Best Buy and Target will only sell the console online for the foreseeable future. So, if you were planning to camp outside your local Target hoping to buy the console today, there will be no walk-in purchases available this year. But, you can order one online and request an in-store pickup.

Until we hear more information from retailers, I strongly advise you to keep a close eye on other popular retailers, including Amazon, Target, GameStop, Newegg, B&H Photo, and if you have a membership, Sam’s Club.

PlayStation 5

  • $499

Prices taken at time of publishing.

Sony’s flagship next-gen console priced at $499. Compared to the PS5 Digital Edition, this console is $100 more and includes a disc drive. (Be warned: these consoles can be extremely hard to find and are often out of stock.)

If you are torn between which PS5 console to buy, no need to worry. The biggest difference to note is that the PS5 Digital Edition is smaller than the PS5 standard, costs $399, and it does not include a Blu-ray disc drive. The PS5 standard is $100 more, is a bit bulkier than the digital edition, and includes a disc drive, allowing you to play game discs.
