• PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

    PS5 stock is selling out fast so be sure to have your credit card ready.

    Looking buy a PS5? Well, so do millions of other people and the stock levels that we’ve seen so far are tight. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we’ve seen them stay in stock is maybe 15 – 20 minutes (usually just a few minutes, though), and that’s at random times, so finding one for yourself can be a difficult task. Sony has warned that it will be hard to find stock throughout the year, but retailers are promising more is coming.

    In our PS5 review, we called it a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. After spending a few months with it now, it’s nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better, and you’ll want to experience it for yourself whenever you get the chance.

    When are retailers releasing new PS5 stock?
    Stores are unreliable when it comes to giving prior notice for PS5 restocks. Some may announce restocks that morning or the night before, while others just drop them with no fanfare. The last we’ve seen the PS5 in-stock was February 19, 2021 at Best Buy. Retailers will in all likelihood have more stock throughout the coming months so you’ll probably have several chances to grab a PS5 for yourself.

    Stock can vary between retailers with some only offering online orders and others sometimes offering in-store pickup.

    Where to buy PS5 accessories in the US
    Sony unveiled a line of accessories to accompany the PS5 at its official reveal event. These include a DualSense charging station, wireless headset, media remote, and camera. These PS5 accessories are now available to buy at the following prices:

    DualSense Wireless Controller (standalone) – Buy now | US$69.99
    PULSE 3D wireless headset — Buy now | US$99.99
    HD Camera — Buy now | US$59.99
    Media Remote — Buy now | US$29.99
    DualSense Charging Station — Buy now | US$29.99

    While it’s easy to get a hold of accessories like the HD Camera, Media Remote, and DualSense controller, the PULSE 3D Wireless headset and DualSense Charging Station tend to be sold out. We wouldn’t recommend paying more than MSRP if you happen to see scalpers trying to sell them. Just wait it out until you see them come back in-stock.

    Which PS5 games you should buy?

    There are plenty of amazing games on the PS5 right now and there will only be more coming as the year goes on. As for the best PS5 games you can get, we recommend titles like Demon’s Souls and Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Both make the most of the console’s graphics and performance boosts compared to its predecessor, and in Demon’s Souls’ case in particular, the remake is immaculate. When it comes to Spider-Man, Insomniac knocked it out of the park once again, creating not only a great superhero tale but a great story for Miles as a person, too.

    There are also some kid-friendly games like Sackboy: A Big Adventure and Bugsnax that have charmed a lot of people with their cute styles and fun gameplay. You can’t get either of these on an Xbox yet, so PS5 is the way to go if you want to play them.

    Best PS5 headsets to buy

    If you don’t normally use a headset when you play games, you really should. They can improve your gaming experience drastically. We have several recommendations for the best PS5 headsets you can purchase right now, and they’ll all stellar choices. Models like the SteelSeries Arctis 7P have it all with 3D audio support, 24-hour battery life, and the most comfortable build on the market. Others like the Razer BlackShark V2 Pro also boat extreme comfort with sublime audio quality.

    No matter what you’re looking for — wired or wireless, affordable or expensive — you’re sure to find one that fits you perfectly.
