Update November 11th, 2:11PM ET: Best Buy has sold out of both PlayStation 5 consoles. We’ll be sure to keep you up to date when we hear of another round of restocks.

If you still haven’t been able to land one of Sony’s next-gen consoles, Best Buy is giving you another shot right now. The $499.99 PS5 with a disc drive and the $399.99 digital edition are available.

Unlike some of Best Buy’s console restocks, this one is available to the general public online and not just for its TotalTech subscribers. Restocks like these may happen more frequently as we get closer to Black Friday. Still, we recommend heading to the link of choosing as quickly as possible to hop in the queue.

$560

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.

$400

The PS5 Digital Edition costs $400. Compared to the standard PS5, this console is $100 less and does not include a Blu-ray disc drive.

A few must-haves for PS5 owners

$50

The black DualSense controller sports the same hardware as the original — haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, etc. — only with a two-tone black design reminiscent of PS2, PS3, and PS4 consoles.

$50

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

$69

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

PlayStation Plus card
$43

A membership to PlayStation Plus allows PlayStation 4 and PS5 owners to play games online, download free titles every month, and take advantage of discounts on the PS Store.
