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.

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 Game Drive (4TB)

  • $120
  • $150
  • 21% off

Seagate’s external hard drive is great if you want to store your PS4 games on your PS5 without taking up too much space. Right now, you can also buy the 4TB model for $120 instead of $170 at Amazon and Best Buy. Just note that you won’t be able to use it to play next-gen PS5 titles, though, a recent update allows you to store them on a hard drive like this one.
