Amazon has PS5 consoles in stock again (update: sold out)

Update November 27th, 2:20PM ET: Amazon has sold out of PlayStation 5 consoles. We’ll be sure to keep you up to date when we hear of another round of restocks. Sony’s latest gaming console, the PS5, is one of many gaming gadgets that are hard to find in stock right now due to mostly online-only sales. If you are trying to get your hands on one, Amazon has restocked PS5 consoles right now, while supplies last (these links will help you add it directly to your cart — Disc, Digital). The consoles are only available for Amazon Prime subscribers, continuing a trend of retailers restricting access to consoles for paying subscribers only. If you can’t add it to your cart, keep trying, occasionally the sites restock over a period of a few minutes. We will update this post once Amazon confirms it’s out of stock.

Black Friday might have been and gone, but if there's one other day you can rely on for deals it's Cyber Monday. You can still secure mega markdowns on everything from TVs to toasters, headphones to holidays, but there’s one product you won’t see with a knockdown price – yep, Sony's PlayStation 5.

Where (And How) You Can Buy A PlayStation 5 This Holiday Season

Console-based video gaming is as popular as ever, and this holiday season, the system people are clamoring to get their hands on is definitely Sony’s PlayStation 5. The problem? In conjunction with Black Friday, it’s typically sold out just about everywhere. So, while the PS5 ads boldly state, “Play Has No Limits,” this is not entirely accurate, since not being able to buy the system due to product shortages is a definite limit.

Sony has reportedly reduced its production forecast for the PlayStation 5 again because of "component and logistics constraints". Sony had previously targeted more than 16m units assembled in the year ending March, but that has now been cut to 15m units, according to Bloomberg sources. This will make its target of 14.8m PS5 sales by March more difficult.
