The PlayStation 5 comes in two different models — one that has a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray drive and a "digital edition" with no disc drive at all. The standard model is priced at $500, and the digital edition is priced at $400. While the digital edition is $100 cheaper, you might need to use your PlayStation 4 discs to claim the PlayStation 5 versions of those games later on.

Several stores, including Best Buy, GameStop, Target, and Newegg have regularly restocked PlayStation 5 consoles since launch but they typically sell out as soon as they're available online. Some GameStop stores have had consoles for sale in-store, but availability depends on when they're shipped.

You can check the links below to see if the PS5 is currently available at each retailer; we'll update this post if a specific store announces a restock.
