Sony has PlayStation 5 consoles for order today at 6PM ET


Update March 24th, 8:23PM ET: Sony appears to have sold out of both the PlayStation 5 and the PS5 Digital Edition for the time being. However, you can still register with Sony for a chance to buy its next-gen console at a later date.

On the hunt for a PlayStation 5? We know it is still quite the challenge to get a hold of one, but don’t give up hope just yet. Sony will be hosting another round of restocked consoles up for grabs at 6PM ET, no invite necessary.

You have a chance at the standard PlayStation 5, complete with a disc drive, for $500, or the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition for $400. Both come equipped with fast 820GB internal SSDs (667GB of which is usable storage), while the extra $100 for the standard model includes the built-in Blu-ray drive for loading up physical discs. Both models can have additional storage added through an expansion slot for one PCIe Gen 4.0 M.2 NVMe SSD, provided it has its own heatsink.

As is the usual standard practice, it is advised that you log in to your PlayStation account ahead of time, as it’s required to make the purchase regardless of which model you choose. Once you’re in the queue it should indicate an estimated time to wait, and the page refreshes itself. Hang tight, hope for the best, consider all the great games you may be playing if you’re one of the lucky ones, and don’t forget some essential accessories before you checkout.

Sony PlayStation 5

Sony’s flagship next-gen console, which includes a disc drive, allows you to play both digital and physical games for the PS4 and PS5.

Accessories and games to go with your console

Cosmic red DualSense controller

Like the original DualSense controller, the cosmic red model features adaptive triggers and haptic feedback but with a vibrant red-and-black design.

WD Black SN850

WD Black SN850 (1TB) with heatsink

The WD Black SN850 is one of the fastest M.2 drives around, with a sequential read speed of up to 7,000MB/s and a write speed of up to 5,300MB/s. It can perform best in a PC that has a PCIe 4.0 motherboard or in a PS5.

Sony Pulse 3D headset

Sony’s own wireless gaming headset, made to showcase the PS5’s 3D Audio effect, also works on the PS4.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

Insomniac Games’ latest adventure in the Ratchet & Clank series is the most fun entry yet. It’s also the first to launch on PS5, and it’s both a showcase for amazing graphics and fast loading speeds.

Deathloop (Deluxe, PS5)

The latest release from Arcane Studios — the team behind Prey and Dishonored — is a masterpiece in many ways, an open-ended mystery that’s thrilling, action-packed, and just the right amount of weird.
