Finally, PlayStation 5 is available in the USA, Japan, Mexico, Australia, New Zeeland, and South Korea. There are two models of PlayStation 5, one is a simple PS5 and the other one is Playstation 5 Digital Edition. However, most of the US major retailers have already sold out all the PS5 they had. The same thing happened when the pre-orders of PS5 began. On Sony’s PS5 Showcase, it was revealed that PS5 will be released for the USA, Japan, Mexico, Australia, New Zeeland, and South Korea on November 10th while on November 19th, it will be released for the rest of the world. For the people who already pre-ordered the PS5:
Please don’t plan on camping out or lining up at your local retailer on launch day in hopes of finding a PS5 console for purchase. Be safe, stay home, and place your order online,
Because of the COVID-19, Sony confirmed that PlayStation 5 will be only available through retailers online stores like Walmart, Target, Amazon etc. Walmart Canada published on their twitter:
We can confirm that #PlayStation5 will be available ONLINE ONLY on at https://t.co/1GutoVVhnx beginning at 11am ET today.— Walmart Canada Gaming (@WalmartCAGaming) November 12, 2020
Due to order volume, it may take some extra time to arrive. We appreciate your patience as we work through these orders.
Stay tuned for more info. pic.twitter.com/n3nmsZknE8
However, the first stock at Walmart ended already. Walmart will restock PS5 at 3:00 PM ET. However, other stores are quite uncertain if they are going to restock it again. Gamestop confirmed that they will restock it on Black Friday which is on November 27th. BestBuy won’t restock it until 2021. So, for now, the best choice is to wait for Walmart to restock the PlayStation 5. Soon after the release, people are already flexing their new next-gen console on Twitter.
