Update: Best Buy PS5 pre-orders are still in progress (and we have personally confirmed this in both the Standard and Digital Editions). They’ve fixed most of the issues and it’s now a lot easier to place your order. If you get the error “We’re sorry, something went wrong”, try another browser or open a new window in Incognito Mode (if you are already in Incognito mode, close the window and open it again).
Update: The wireless Pulse 3D headset, HD camera, DualSense charging station and media remote control are now available on Amazon. The Dualsense Controller is also still available.
Update: The Best Buy website is still very unstable, but the last thing on the PS5 pre-order page is the console that is still in stock. It works for some readers, but not for others. You may need to try different browsers or be willing to go through the checkout process multiple times.
To update: Amazon PS5 pre-orders were live for about 20 minutes, but inventory on both consoles now appears to be sold out. We will inform you when the console is back in stock!
These links below are your first and best choice when purchasing a PS5. Neither of them had an easy-to-buy inventory at the last check, but things are changing fast! We always keep these links up to date. Check them out first:
Walmart issued a statement stating that if you missed pre-ordering on their website, you can “pre-order” on 9/22 at Walmart stores for $ 499 (digital edition for $ 399).
Amazon’s placeholder page originally contained item details, but has since been removed. If an Amazon link or another retailer link changes or is replaced, these pages will be updated to always stay up to date. So keep checking back.
Sony began sending pre-order invitations to those who signed up on their website. Check your inbox to see if you have one. If so, you can pick up yours on Friday.

PS5 pre-orders should begin fully tomorrow, September 17th, at certain retailers, according to a tweet from Sony. With Walmart, Best Buy, Target and GameStop placing their pre-orders early, we are not sure what that means for the “official” PS5 pre-order date. Maybe they have more stock or are now fully sold out. We will let you know as soon as things change.

PS5 release date, price and breaking news
Both versions of the PS5, with or without a drive, have a US release date of November 12th. And we now know how much the PS5 costs: $ 499 for the standard version and $ 399 for the discless-only digital model.
Previously, developers shared their views on the SSD and 3D audio capabilities of the upcoming console. It’s developing into a very cool console. Sony has also created a page for PS Plus members to sign up on to pre-order PS5 directly from Sony.
We also have news from Ratchet & Clank: A Rift Apart is definitely a PS5 launch game, but it was confirmed during Gamescom that it was a “launch window” game that could mean anything.

Will PS5 be easy to get?
So far it has been very difficult. Sure, a lot of people have pre-ordered their PS5 or PS5 digital, but it’s not without a few hiccups or total site failures.
The standard single-drive PS5 console costs $ 499 while the Discless version costs $ 399.
PS5 game prices
The good news is we know that games like Far Cry 6 support free upgrades from PS4 to PS5. While it looked like all PS5 and Xbox Series X games would cost $ 70, recent developments seem to suggest that publishers are sticking to the current price of $ 59.99 for many new games, at least for now. It looks like many first-party Sony PS5 games will cost as much as $ 70, including Demon’s Souls and Destruction All Stars. Spider-Man: Miles Morales is priced at $ 50, however, and looks amazing by the way.

Will my PS4 controller work on PS5?
Well, not least for PS5 games. Sony has confirmed that DualShock 4 is not suitable for playing PS5 games. However, you can use your existing PS4 controllers to play “supported PS4 games”. Speaking of …
Will PS5 be backwards compatible?
Yes. Well, for PS4, we know some supported games will work. In a (now removed) entry on its support page, Ubisoft said about the backward compatibility of the PS5 that it “will be available for supported PlayStation 4 titles but will not be available for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2 or PlayStation games “. Unlike Xbox, which relies on backward compatibility to the original Xbox as a selling point, it looks like PS5’s backward compatibility has a few asterisks.
However, Sony unveiled the PlayStation Plus collection, Sony’s answer to the Xbox Game Pass. To launch, PS Plus members can download and play some of the greatest PS4 games with their subscription.
