Two years since Sony launched the PlayStation 5 and the market is still struggling to keep up with demand. Whether that be scalpers at every turn, automated bots trying to swipe everything within seconds, manufacturing issues caused by the pandemic, 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 and potentially beyond, we've compiled a list of the top retailers to get the elusive console from as well as some handy tips to be aware of. 

T3's PS5 restock tracker is regularly updated but there are also a few extra steps worth considering – most notably, making an account across retailers' online accounts to save time on checkout. It can help to keep the console in your wishlist basket too. Additionally, Amazon operates an invite-only system for those seeking a console in the UK and the US, saving a lot of hassle. Now onto the important bit: where to find a PS5 today. 

While you won't find the PS5 console among the best Black Friday deals (opens in new tab), you can find a wealth of PS5 Black Friday accessories and games. 

Please note any stock availability is based on the time of writing. Consoles are still selling reasonably fast, so may not be available when you click through.
