If you missed the restock for the $500 PS5 with a disc drive earlier this morning, Target has now restocked the PS5 Digital Edition, while supplies last.

Looking at the product listing for the product, it appears Target is not shipping the item to your home address, but rather you have to choose in-store pickup. Once stores are out of stock, you likely will have to wait until the next stock drop to place an order.

Once you have your PS5, you may want to consider buying some additional accessories not included with the console so you can get the most out of your new gadget; this includes an extra DualSense controller.

First, there’s the controller. Every new PS5 includes one DualSense controller. Unlike the last-gen DualShock controllers, the DualSense has a two-color scheme and a more ergonomic design. The controller also features adaptive triggers, a built-in microphone, and haptic feedback, with some games taking advantage of the controller’s features to provide an added level of immersion.

In addition to working with the PS5, the DualSense can wirelessly connect to Android and iOS devices. The controller will also connect wirelessly to a PC if your computer supports Bluetooth. If not, you can connect the DualSense to a PC using a USB cable.

The white controller usually retails for around $70, but sometimes you can find it on sale for $60 — the same goes for the new midnight black and cosmic red shades unveiled in May. The DualSense is a good successor to the PlayStation 4’s controller, given all the improvements that come with it. If you already owned a PS4 or own a DualShock 4, however, you can still use the controller on the PS5, but it will only work while playing PS4 games.

There’s also a ton of PS5 games right now, including Demon’s Souls Remake by Bluepoint Games or the third-party blockbuster titles like Yakuza: Like a Dragon, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and Watch Dogs: Legion.

I also recommend buying a one-year membership to PlayStation Plus, as the perks of having a subscription are great for PS5 users. Most notably, it nets you access to the PlayStation Plus Collection, an exclusive perk for PS5 owners that provides access to “generation-defining” titles that were released originally on PS4, including Bloodborne, Persona 5, and Uncharted IV: A Thief’s End.
