Best Buy has another round of restocks for Sony’s next-generation console, the PS5. You can buy both the PS5, which includes a disc drive right now, while supplies last.

A subscription to PlayStation Plus is a good purchase. But you’re not just paying to play most games (excluding free-to-play titles) online, as PS5 users with an active PS Plus subscription also have access to a digital library called the PlayStation Plus Collection, which features various first- and third-party titles released during the PS4’s life span.
