If you’re starting to crack and considering buying a PS5 right now (and we know that with the number of big PS5 games about to drop over the next few months, the pressure is on), you can do so, but at the cost of a hefty markup on sites like eBay and StockX. On eBay, for example, we’ve seen PS5 units priced well over $1,000. We think it’s worth it to wait it out and get the new console at sticker price.
Two PS5 restocks happened Wednesday. The first was early in the morning at Target, and then GameStop followed suit in the afternoon. As usual, both sold out within minutes. Walmart could be next, with rumors that a restock will happen Thursday, and we’re still waiting for a restock at PlayStation Direct.
The PS5 is available in two versions: There’s a $500 model with a Blu-ray drive and an otherwise identical $400 digital-only version with no disc slot. At this point, people are happy to get their hands on either one, but if you don’t have a library of optical discs — for Blu-ray movies, used games or old PS4 games — CNET recommends that you go with the $400 version.
