If you are currently buying a PlayStation 5 console and have recently had replenishments at Walmart, Costco, and other retailers, you have another chance right now at Best Buy. The electronics retailer has just opened a new batch of PlayStation 5 consoles for $ 499.99. Best Buy only sells the disc version, however, not the digital edition.
Make sure to log in and queue at the Best Buy site, with your billing and shipping information saved. Click the “Add to Cart” button on the right to jump into the queue and stay calm. You do not need to refresh the automated system, however, you may be prompted to verify your account when it is your turn. After that, you should be able to see if there are any PS5 consoles available in your area (they are currently only available for store pickup).
