PS5 Reset Updates: Check out Inventory at Amazon, GameStop, Sony, Walmart and Best Buy

If you’re here, it seems you can’t, like many others, catch on to the favorites Sony PlayStation 5. Many gamers are still spoiled by low investments at major retailers like Amazon, GameStop, Best Buy, Walmart and Sony and have plunged into a scary and familiar climate: Get a wind of re- stock PS5, raise your hopes, click wildly, wait in line queue and then get nothing more than a “sold out” message. Fortunately, if you’re sick of fighting other users for the new console, there are ways to improve your chances.

First, don’t wait to hear about the PS5 re-stock; take a look at the list of stores connecting yourself every day or even several times a day. (We’ve lined up below.) If you come across some PlayStation 5, use as many web browsers and devices as you can. On a desktop, for example, you could open the vendor page in Chrome, Firefox and Edge. Then you could do the same on your tablet and phone. It’s like lottery tickets: The more you have, the better your chances of winning.

If you’re starting to crack and are considering buying a PS5 right now, you can do so, but at the expense of an obscene token on sites like eBay and StockX. On eBay, for example, we saw the PS5 cost over $ 1,000.

The PS5 is available in two versions: A $ 500 model with Blu-ray driver and a digital version of just $ 400 without a disc slot. At this stage, people are happy to get their hands on one or the other, unless you have a library of optical discs – for Blu-ray movies, used games or old PS4 games – CNET recommends to you go with the $ 400 version.

Okay, you’ve gotten out of all the online retailers and brick-and-mortar, and you’ve decided you’re willing to pay up to $ 300 markup to the get this puppy soon. As your friends, we need to tell you: Don’t do it. But if you don’t want to listen to us, you might want to take a look at StockX, an eBay option that made a name in the high school market for sneakers and designer clothing. Last time we checked, prices for the PS5 were rising just under $ 700.

If you’ve decided you can’t wait another minute for Sony to take the action together and flood the market with an inventory, eBay is an acronym to get your own PS5 right now. That said, let me reiterate our advice: PS5 is not worth spending hundreds on a list price, and that is exactly what you need to do if you buy from an eBay retailer. The average price of a PS5 on eBay is around $ 900.
