Buy PS5 in April: Update - Amazon with new consoles

Buy PS5 in April

Update April 14th: There were definitely available PS5s on Amazon today. In our overview, however, the digital edition of the PS5 without a drive appears above all. Keep an eye on the PS5's Amazon page. It could well be that the online retailer will gradually unlock new contingents.

Update April 9th: Despite various rumors in the past few days, there are still no subsequent deliveries of the PS5 in sight. In the meantime, however, a new PS5 bundle with Spider-Man: Miles Morales listed on Amazon, which was not yet active and has already disappeared. At Amazon, the offers usually start in the morning. But there is no fixed time. You can find helpful links to all shops that offer a PS5 below in the text.

As of April 5th: Are you one of those unlucky players who still couldn't buy a PS5 (buy now)? You are not alone. We remember the queue in the Euronics shop at the end of February, when almost 130,000 people were hoping for the chance to load the new Sony console into the virtual shopping cart ...

How many devices were actually available, we do not know. Contingents of available PS5s have been in the three-digit range since the beginning of the year. The probability of getting a console in the normal way, unless you scan the usual shops, is therefore still low. Various websites have now started a live blog to inform desperate PS5 fans about current availability.

Sony was surprised by the demand for the PS5, it said a few weeks ago. Well, we can't think of anything anymore. More and more fraudsters are trying to get the money out of desperate buyers. And the fake pages are becoming more and more professional. After the announcement that Sony intends to sell PS5 consoles itself in the future, a website in particular attracted potential buyers. It is playstation-sony.XX (we do not include a direct link) but not an official Sony site! Overall, please be careful: If an offer is too good to be true, then it is usually too.

Unfortunately, we can't help you either, we in the editorial team still have it People without a Playstation 5. Perhaps the bot can help you as it searches German retailers for new PS5 availabilities. Or you follow various Twitter accounts that draw attention to new offers. Until then, all you have to do is take a look at the popular shops and a quick mouse finger to forestall the scalpers.

Where to buy a PS5: Here's what you need to know to get Sony's new gaming console

Five months have elapsed since the PlayStation 5 -- recently named the fastest-selling console in US history -- was released by Sony, and it still seems as difficult as ever to actually get one. The company can't keep up with the sky-high demand, and the problem is being exacerbated by the global chip shortage and the pandemic. If you've been trying to buy a PS5, but never manage to score, you're certainly not the only one. Though any time a retailer has a PS5 restock, it sells out instantly, that's actually good news, because any progress with PS5 inventory is good progress.

As of April 13, both versions of the console -- the less expensive $400 digital-only edition with no optical drive and the $500 PS5 with Blu-ray -- are out of stock at every major retailer, including Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Target and Walmart, but that shouldn't stop you from trying to find one. If you're willing to shell out far more than the sticker price, you can get a PlayStation 5 or PS5 bundle at a reseller like eBay or StockX, but our advice is to wait for PS5 availability at other retailer options. Be sure to check back here often for the latest updates on when retailers might have new console restocks.

You can monitor PlayStation 5 stock updates on your own; Twitter, for example, is a good source for restock rumors. But we occasionally get word directly from retailers and tipsters about upcoming PS5 console inventory restocks, and we update this post immediately. Again, be aware: It likely could be months before anything approximating normal inventory levels appears in stores, so getting your own PS5 gaming console is likely to be a challenge until summer at the earliest. Below you'll find a list of all the major retailers (and a few high-profile resellers) where you can monitor the video game console's stock and availability. 

More on next-gen consoles

You can check out Amazon's page for the $400 Digital Edition via the button below, or, if you'd rather, get in line for the PS5 with Blu-ray for $500.

When in stock, Target offers the PS5 with Blu-ray for $500, in addition to the PS5 Digital Edition, which you can find by clicking the button below.

You can check on availability of the $400 Digital Edition at Walmart by clicking the button below, or you can try to snag the pricier PS5 with Blu-ray for $500.

When in stock, Best Buy offers the PS5 with Blu-ray for $500 along with the $400 Digital Edition (which you can find by clicking the button below). The retailer is also offering a slew of accessories on its PS5 landing page.

We don't recommend spending more than retail to get a PS5, but if you must have a console right now, eBay is your shortcut to getting a console. That said, expect to pay hundreds over list; the average PS5 price on eBay is about $800. 

If you've exhausted all of the usual retail options and you're willing to pay hundreds over list price, you might want to check out StockX, an eBay alternative that made its name in the secondary market for sneakers and designer clothing. Last time we checked, prices for the PS5 were hovering just below $650. We don't think it's worth it, but let your conscience (and your wallet) be your guide).
