WHY IS THE PLAYSTATION 5 SO HARD TO GET?

Ever since its initial release in 2020, Sony’s PlayStation 5 has been notoriously difficult to snap up thanks, in part, to COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions in regions where chips and other essential console parts are made.

Another setback plaguing would-be customers comes in the form of ultra fast bots. These software programs have been designed to purchase PS5s in an automated fashion that is far faster than any human being. This has allowed them to complete transactions as soon as PS5 consoles become available, resulting in immediate sellouts.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that purchasing a PS5 console is going to get easier anytime soon. If you are eager to get your hands on one, we recommend the following:

  • Follow a PS5 restock alert Twitter account. The only way to contend with bots seems to be beating them at their own game, which is why a number of Twitter accounts have now popped up courtesy of generous bot creators. One of the most popular goes by the Twitter handle @AustraliaPs5 and works by crawling Aussie retailers and posting to Twitter whenever PS5s become available for sale.
  • Keep an eye on Australian stockists. It may be a painful and time consuming endeavour, but regularly checking retail sites could be the key to landing yourself a shiny new console. It’s also a good idea to sign up for newsletter alerts or join waitlists from stockists where available. We’ve rounded up a list of Aussie stores selling PS5 consoles for you to bookmark below.

WHERE TO BUY THE PS5

While most retailers are currently out of stock of PS5 consoles, these are the retailers to watch if you want to snap one up. When shopping, be aware that many online prices have been gouged and that the RRP of the PS5 (Digital Edition) is actually $599.

Amazon Australia

As one of the largest online stores in the world, Amazon holds a lot of sway when it comes to receiving shipments of highly sought-after products. We recommend bookmarking its’ PlayStation 5 page and checking the ‘see all buying options’ tab regularly.

Be mindful that Amazon does offer some products through third-party sellers, so it pays to check out the buyer before committing to a purchase.

Big W

Department store Big W receives small PS5 console drops fairly regularly, making it worth the watch. With new stock previously selling out within minutes though, you’ll need to be quick to bag one.

Target

Similar to Big W, department store Target has received several PS5 console shipments over the past year. Given how quickly they’ve sold out, you’re highly unlikely to see them on the shop floor, so you’ll need to keep an eye out online.

JB Hi-Fi

Popular electronics store JB Hi-Fi is another retailer that appears to get PS5 stock on a semi-regular basis. While you’re unlikely to see the console in-store, it could be worth heading to your nearest outlet to see if they have a waiting list that you can join.

EB Games

Gaming retailer EB Games also offers a waiting list, making it worth calling or visiting your local store. Similar to JB’s, room on the waiting list is limited, so it may take several attempts to get your name on it.

The Gamesmen

Independent video game retailer, The Gamesmen, announce any new PS5 stock drops via their social media platforms and their email newsletter, making it worth signing up to stay in the loop.
