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, stock has sold out at all major retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, GameStop, and Target.
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. GameStop issued an update on Twitter confirming that PS5 stock sold out 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.
Right now, Antonline might be your best bet for scoring a preorder. The retailer has announced it would launch a new round of PS5 preorders starting today at 11 AM PT / 1 PM ET. The store pages for the actual bundles, however, are currently inaccessible, likely due to the overwhelming number of people looking to get their console. That said, you might still be able to score a preorder once the pages are accessible, so you may want to refresh the pages for the next few hours just in case.
