When Will the PS5 Be Coming Back in Stock?There isn't any current news to show that the PS5 will be getting consistent stock until at least next year, but there are plenty of signs that retailers will continue to get more allocation in the run-up to Christmas and 2021. Keep your eyes and notification on for our Twitter page, and we'll even announce news at the top of this article when more stock is announced.
Sony recently said that there will be more stock rolling off the shelves before the end of the year, so there continues to be some hope for those still after the most premium item of the year, the PS5.
Advice for Getting a PS5 Before Christmas
Be Logged Into Retailer WebsitesWhen an online retailer gets PS5 in stock, it seems like everyone on the planet is scrambling to lock in their order. Retailer websites often become ultra-buggy thanks to all the stress on their servers. Your best bet for getting a PS5 when orders become available is to already be logged into your account, and to have your credit card information saved there. That way you won't waste precious seconds entering your credit card number, billing address, etc. while everyone around you is successfully checking out.
