Forget PS5 restocks: Here’s when you should buy this console


The PS5 is almost impossible to find. That was the case during pre-orders; that was the case at launch; and I anticipate it’s going to be the case well after Christmas. While stocks could stabilize as early as late January, there’s a good chance that we’ll have to wait a few more months before you can waltz into any electronics store and pick up Sony’s newest console.

The good news is that you don’t really need a PS5 right now, at least if you have a PS4, or a comparable gaming system. However, while I don’t recommend dropping everything for a PS5 just yet, the fact is that the PS4 is on the way out, and console gamers will have to update sooner or later. If now isn’t the right time to buy a PS5, when will it be? 

While everyone’s individual case will vary somewhat, we can try to pinpoint the “best” time to buy a PS5 based on three major factors: game selection, hardware and price. And, naturally, if you really, really want a PS5, then the best time to buy one is “as soon as you can find a restock.”
