Update on September 25 at 4:30pm ET: GameStop re-launched its PS5 pre-order website but appears to have sold out of stock. The retailer posted a “sold out” banner on its main page and the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition product pages show “Not available.” Keep your eyes peeled on other retailers for pre-order availability.
Didn’t snatch a PS5 pre-order before they sold out? Today you’ll get a second chance. PS5 pre-orders will go back in stock today in the US, Canada and the UK as the second wave of consoles becomes available.
The demand to pre-order a PS5 is immeasurable so you’ll need to be quick-fingered to snag a console before they go out of stock again. One way to stay ahead of the game is by bookmarking this page and checking the links below for stock updates. You can also sign-up for stock alerts with each retailer but they tend to be unreliable. “
GameStop announced recently that PS5 pre-orders would be available in brick and mortar stores-only starting today. That means you’ll need to physically go to a GameStop (don’t forget your mask!) and claim yours among what could be a sizable crowd.
If you’re not comfortable going to a store or simply prefer to do your dealings online, then check out Amazon, Best Buy, Target, Walmart or the GameStop website. We can’t guarantee all of these stores will have more PS5 pre-orders but GameStop confirmed it would have more units available to pre-order online.

Update: GameStop has sold out of PS5 and PS5 Digital pre-orders. It is unclear if and when the retailer will get more consoles in stock before launch.

The first PS5 pre-order wave was a disaster. Retailers jumped the gun, listing the console a day early. Websites instantly crashed, customers were shown errors during checkout, and the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition went in and out of stock seemingly at random. Sony now appears to be taking a more measured approach, trickling out more stock up until launch on November 12.
