It’s been a minute since Sony last offered the PlayStation 5 through its digital storefront. Last month, the company staged public restocks for three days in a row, so anyone with a PlayStation Network account online could queue up to buy one. And honestly, recent restock events have been pretty easy to browse and grab a console. So now it’s time to get in line as Sony is currently doing a restock.
Once you wait in line and your turn comes (keep your volume up and you hear a chime), you should be able to purchase a PlayStation 5 console and a selection of accessories and games. While availability has varied for past restock events, it appears Sony is currently offering the disc-based PS5 only for $549.99 with a digital copy of Horizon Forbidden West. Unfortunately, while we’ve seen non-bundling options for both the disc-based console and PS5 Digital Edition in the past, neither is currently available.
However, if you don’t mind opting for a bundle, make sure to wait out of the queue even if the estimated wait time is over an hour, as many of these online queues end before the estimated wait time has passed . That said, good luck getting your new PS5!
Games and accessories you can’t ignore
Grab your console, get your games and get your accessories. There are plenty of fantastic titles and accessories for Sony’s next-gen games console, but below are some of our current favorites.
