The elusive PS5 console is in stock at Best Buy. The retailer is offering both the disc-based and digital editions of the console, starting at $399. Opportunities to snag one of these next-gen consoles have been even fewer and farther between than in late 2020, possibly due to the global chip shortages. We’re noticing that stock is coming in and out, so stick with the page for a few minutes to see if you can add one to your cart.
Sony’s flagship next-gen console, starting at $399.99. The biggest difference between both models is the Digital Edition can only play digital games, while the $500 PS5 includes a disc drive, allowing you to play both digital and physical games.
I hope that you get lucky with your purchase today. Whether you do or not, you might need some games and accessories to go with the PS5. Some of the hottest titles such as Returnal and Spider-Man: Miles Morales are available on the console. Resident Evil Village is releasing tomorrow, May 7th.
Recently, Sony patched the PS5 to be able to store both PS4 and next-gen games on an external HDD, though to play those PS5 games, you’ll need to load them back onto the console’s speedy SSD. Regardless, it’s nice to have an extra hard drive in the event that you need it, so check out this external HDD.
Seagate’s external hard drive is great if you want to store your PS4 games on your PS5 without taking up precious SSD space. Right now, you can also buy the 4TB model for $109.99 instead of $124.99 at Amazon and Best Buy. Just note that you won’t be able to use it to play PS5 titles, though a firmware update allows you to off-load them onto a hard drive like this one.
