Which shops have PS5 stock for January 2021? Where can you currently buy a new PlayStation 5 console? Demand for the PS5 has exceeded supply, leaving many unable to purchase a next-gen console over the Christmas period and beyond. Sony has suggested that it will be making more units in 2021, having secured additional component inventory from some of its key manufacturing partners. As such, as part of our PS5 guide, we're going to explain which stores have PS5s in stock right now, when you can expect new supply to become available, and what times those product pages will go live.
We'll be keeping this page as up to date as possible. If you're looking to buy a PS5, bookmark this article and check back for updates on when and where you can get one. You can also learn How to Get PS5 Stock Notifications through the link.
