How to buy a PlayStation 5

Both the PS5 ($499.99) and the PS5 Digital Edition ($399.99) are currently available

The Digital Edition lacks the ability to play disc-based games, and that’s about it. Both models have the same 825 GB SSD, CPU, and GPU configurations

There are a few more granular differences, such as the amount of power drawn, but the two consoles are very similar.

There is no disc drive, so the Digital Edition is smaller and lighter than the $499.99 version.

Even if you don’t sign up for notifications from services like GPU Drops, you might be more successful checking for availability at a physical store in your area

We’ve also included some helpful pointers to get you up to speed. At least once a week, we see at least one restock at each of the major retailers
