Thehas already proven to be a must-have gift this holiday season. The next-generation Sony game console will hit stores on November 12 in two versions: a $ 400 digital version and a $ 500 model with Blu-ray. (If you have good broadband and do not need optical discs – used games, Blu-ray movies, old PS4 games – we recommend you .) But after most retailers jumped on the bandwagon and started taking online pre-orders a day early, the resulting traffic crashed websites as if they were suffering from denial-of-service attacks. Almost immediate sales disappointed many players.
Thankfully, there is good news in sight, starting with this tweet on Thursday from GameStop:
This is followed by a tweet from Sony from Saturday 19 September, where the company and said that “will release more PS5 consoles for pre-order.” In addition, the company promised “more PS5 will be available by the end of the year.”

In the meantime, we have compiled the pre-order pages for major retailers below so that you can easily browse the status of their stock at any given time.
