How to Find the PS5 in Stock



Here’s how to find the PS5 in stock in 2020 to pre-order. This can help you get the PS5 on release day or before Christmas without paying eBay prices.

The PS5 is available for $399 for the All Digitial Edition and $499 for the version with a disc. Both consoles are hard to find in stock, and right now out of stock.

The good news is that we are already seeing the PS5 in stock at various retailers for short periods after the initial pre-order, so if you are quick you can still get a PS5 pre-order in.

Sony confirmed that you will be able to find the PS5 in stock over the next several days at retailers to pre-order and more stock is coming yet this year.


We have links on where to check for the PS5 in stock, and a guide on how to get a notification when the PS5 is in stock at a retailer so that you can quickly order one.

Where to find the PS5 in stock in 2020.

The PlayStation 5 is sold at several stores directly, and you can buy it in eBay if you are willing to pay a premium. Here’s a rundown of where you can check the PS5 stock manually, which is smart to do as it can give you an edge in some cases. We continue to see the PS5 go in and out of stock at various times each day.

PlayStation 5 Console
  • Lightning Speed - Harness the power of a custom CPU, GPU, and SSD with Integrated I/O that rewrite the rules of what a PlayStation console can do.
  • Stunning Games - Marvel at incredible graphics and experience new PS5 features.

Most of these retailers let you sign up for an in-stock alert. You can also do in-store pre-orders at some GameStop locations, but quantities may already be spoken for.

How to get a notification when the PS5 is in stock.

If you don’t want to manually check the stock at stores, you can sign up to get tracking alerts from NowInStock. These are great in addition to any in stock alerts that the retailers allow you to set up directly.

  1. Go to the PS5 page on NowInStock.
  2. Register for a free account at NowInStock.
  3. Check your inbox for a verification email and click the correct link to verify.
  4. Go back to the PS5 NowInStock page.
  5. Click Add/Manage alerts in the right corner of the screen.
  6. Add an item to track it.

You can get browser alerts, text alerts, or email alerts when the model you want is in stock.

You can also see the history of when the PS5 is in stock at specific retailers. Use this to know when you should manually check or when you should expect an alert.

How to Get a PS5 Right Now

While you can’t get the PS5 right now, if you don’t want to mess with a retailer or waiting for pre-orders to start back up when small amounts trickle in, you can look for a reseller on eBay.

People are already reselling their PS5 pre-orders on eBay for a several hundred dollar premium.

Be careful to read the listing, we’ve already spotted someone selling a piece of paper pretending to be a PS5, and there will doubtlessly be other questionable listings. eBay is pretty good at closing those down on pre-orders like this, but just be cautious.

    By even mentioning bot hoarding sites like NowInStock, you promote even further shortages and artificial scarcity. It should not be necessary to use a SKU hunting website to track availability and snap up units before John Q Public has a chance at his local games store or retailer. The average consumer is screwed by people using these sites to acquire multiple preorders from multiple retailers. This same nonsense happened with the switch and scalpers are STILL having a field day. Scalpers will be sitting on multiple units and ordinary gamers like myself will either be forced to pay egregious premiums on ebay, or simply go the xbox route. I dont want to do either. Sony dropped the ball with preorders, BIG TIME.
