PS5 stock is selling out fast so be sure to have your credit card ready.

Want to buy a PS5? Most stores should be getting launch day stock throughout the day starting at around noon, but there’s always a chance PS5 consoles will go on sale early. This has been a hectic launch with preorders of the PS5 selling out almost immediately after they were available. If you were unable to preorder a console beforehand, this may be your last chance to buy a PS5 before the new year. Sony warns that systems will be extremely difficult to get ahold of.

In our PS5 review, we called it a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller.
