PS5 pre-orders have begun, giving you a chance to snag a console before it starts rolling out on November 12 at $499 for the standard edition and $399 for the discless PS5 Digital Edition. But Sony’s new next-gen machine has been hard to find since it first went on sale.
Sony’s hotly anticipated next-gen console has sold out almost immediately at most major stores including Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart. Stock has come in and out at many major retailers since pre-orders first went live, and we’re tracking the latest updates right here.

A word of warning: Amazon has begun e-mailing those who secured a PS5 pre-order that their shipment might not arrive on launch day. It’s possible that other retailers may follow suit, so keep an eye on your inbox.
