Still looking for a next-gen PlayStation 5? Straight away, Sony sells the disc-based PlayStation 5 with a digital copy of Guerrilla Games’ excellent Horizon Forbidden West for $549.99, which is $10 less than the cost if you bought the two separately. The best part? You don’t even have to wait in line to pick one up.
While we’ve seen Sony and other retailers offer longer-than-usual stock lately, speed is still the name of the game here. We can’t suggest hacks that guarantee you’ll land the console today, but as detailed in our guide to buying a PS5, there are a few things you can do to increase your chances of getting your hands on one. For example, remember that you need to sign in with your PlayStation Network ID to buy a PlayStation 5 from Sony, so make sure you have your username and password handy. Also keep in mind that you can only buy one console per account, so don’t waste your time trying to buy more than one.
If you fail to land a console today, be sure to contact us again. Restocking events like this one aren’t as rare as they once were, and we routinely recall inventory when we see it at Amazon, Target, Best Buy, and other retailers.
