One year since Sony launched the PlayStation 5 and the market is still struggling to keep up with demand for the console. Whether that be scalpers at every turn, automated bots trying to swipe everything within seconds, or just the millions of other shoppers trying to get their hands on the games device – it's a minefield out there.
Fear not! We've scoured the web far and wide to save you the hassle. While the surge in sales for the PS5 is expected to continue well into 2022, we've compiled a list of the top retailers to find the elusive console from as well as some handy tips to be aware of to help get you to the checkout – and more importantly, receive that sweet, sweet confirmation message. The great news is that it's set to become much easier to secure a console, with Sony set to bring in "phenomenal" amounts of PS5 stock just in time for Christmas. Huzzah!
T3's PS5 stock tracker is regularly updated but there's also a few extra steps worth considering. We'd recommend bookmarking a number of stock trackers across social media (especially Twitter), checking in at any local retailers in case some have stock unexpectedly without warning, alongside making an account across said retailers online accounts to save time on checkout.
