It is apparent that the Playstation 5 that was released on November 20th, 2020, and has been a huge success ever since then. It’s very rare that you see one in stock in a retail store, in Canada. I have heard of people seeing them in stock at my local “The Source”, though of course they sell out as soon as they are stocked. Since I am at one of these retail stores every day, I have not seen the PS5 in stock at all (except for the PS4 Slim, and those even sell out right away).
So, obviously, Sony is making millions from these consoles and getting one in the first year is going to be difficult, but I’ve heard rumors that even in the second year of it’s release, it’s going to be hard to get one. One person I know personally got a PS5 online because someone returned one that was normally an online order. He says the gameplay is an awesome first-hand experience. OK, no doubt about that, it’s awesome, but where are the 6 places online that you can get a PS5?.
First of all, you got to watch out for price gouging, and second of all, there is a website that can keep track of the stock of these websites and you can sign up for email notifications, check that website out here. The accuracy of these websites that provide stock updates via email is still questionable, I have signed up for Now in Stock, but no updates yet and it’s been 3 weeks. Anyways, here is the list of 7 websites that carry the PS5 online. Watchout for Newegg.ca as they price gouge (the third party sellers) and Amazon.ca may do this too.
Of course, Amazon has to be one of the first places to look for a PS5, but no, they are sold out like everyone else.
Actually finding a PS5 online and having it shipped to your door, (for a price), is totally possible with eBaY. If you want one today, go ahead, pay $1500 for one, then have it shipped to your house and you can play intense games and then the guy across the street from you can just order two of them two years later for the same price. I’d rather not get ripped off, but money can buy anything right?.
There’s your list of the top places to find a PS5 online and locally. Unfortunately Zellers is no longer around so, these 7 places to find a PS5 should work out great for you if you have patience.
