Over the past three months, relatively few gamers have managed to snag a PlayStation 5. Sony's next-gen game console was released on November 12 of the year. last year, and demand exceeded stocks. In the months that followed, we saw a lot of restocking at major retailers, but getting a unit was an uphill battle; ordinary users had to compete with bots and resellers . Right now the only consoles you can buy are marked at obscene levels on sites like eBay and StockX , often several times their retail value of 400 USD or 500 USD. On eBay, for example, we saw it priced well over $ 1,000. The console was otherwise virtually impossible to find, with at least aperson queuing for 36 hours to catch one at a GameStop in California.

The PS5 is available in two versions: There is a 500 USD model with Blu-ray player and digital version only same as 400 $ no slot for disc. At this point people are happy to get their hands on one or the other, but if you don 't have an optical disc library - for Blu-ray movies, used games or older PS4 games - recommend go with the Version at $ 400 .
Either way, it will be some time before a PS5 is easy to find. But I will still keep an eye out for replenishments and update this article when it looks like you could score a PS5.
