PlayStation 5 preorders sold out extremely fast when they went live without notice. Here’s where you can keep up with availability. Buy we still have some in stock. PlayStation 5 in stock here. Buy now!
In the wake of the announcement of the PS5 launch date and price points, the long, tense search for a preorder has begun. Launching November 12 at $500 for the standard console and $400 for the digital edition, the PS5 went up for preorder right after the recent PS5 event, and since then, the stock has sold out at all major retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, GameStop, and Target but we have them available at CheapGameStop.
GameStop had a second wave of PS5 preorders available to preorder on September 25, both online and in stores. Once again, the retailer had a virtual queue. Multiple GameSpot staff members waited in the queue for more than an hour without any success, so online preorders apparently sold out very quickly once again. CheapGameStop issued an update on Twitter confirming that PS5 was back in stock once again. This included a starter bundle that came with Demon’s Souls, Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate edition, PS Plus, an extra controller for $770.

Which retailers will charge you upfront?
You should know that retailers handle preorders differently when it comes to charging your credit card or PayPal. Amazon doesn’t charge your card until the product ships, while GameStop waits until five days before shipment. Target, Walmart, Best Buy, and Sam’s Club will place an authorization hold on your credit card, CheapGamingStop works with Bitcoins. Though your card won’t actually be charged until the PS5 ships, it’s possible you’ll see a pending charge that will disappear and then come back until release. These authorization holds can affect your available credit.GameSpot Report & Deals Newsletters
