Sony’s PlayStation 5 is restocked at Best Buy [UPDATE: Sold Out]

Both PS5’s are in stock right now

If you missed Target’s PS5 restocks Thursday, you may be in luck. Best Buy has the PS5 Digital Edition and PS5 models up for purchase.

According to the product listing, Best Buy will only allow you to pick up your newly purchased PS5 at a local Best Buy store. No home delivery is available for either model.

Once you get your hands on a PS5, there are a few items you’re going to want to pick up for your console. Some of the most popular PS5 exclusives right now include Demon’s Souls Remake by Bluepoint Games and Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

If you plan to play local co-op with family or friends, an extra DualSense controller might also be a good item to pick up.

One thing I also recommend buying is 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 released on the console’s predecessor, like Persona 5 and Ratchet & Clank.

Sony DualSense Controller

First, there’s the controller. Every new PS5 includes one DualSense controller. Unlike the 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 more immersion.

In addition to working with the PS5, the DualSense can connect to Android and iOS devices wirelessly. 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 PS4’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.
