It’s been a minute since Sony last offered the PlayStation 5 through its digital storefront. Last month, the company held public restocks three days in a row, allowing anyone with a PlayStation Network account to line up online for a chance to purchase one. And frankly, recent restock events have been pretty easy to skim through and nab a console. So now is the time to get in line, as Sony has a restock going on right now.

Once you wait in the queue and it’s your turn (keep the volume on and you’ll hear a chime), you should be able to purchase a PlayStation 5 console and a selection of accessories and games. While availability has varied for past restock events, it appears Sony is currently only offering the PS5 on disc for $549.99 along with a digital copy of Forbidden Horizon West. Unfortunately, while we’ve seen unbundled options for the disc-based console and PS5 Digital Edition in the past, none are available at this time.

If you don’t mind opting for a package, be sure to wait for the queue to end even if the estimated wait is over an hour, especially since many of these queues line ends before the end of the estimated waiting time. That said, good luck getting your new PS5!

Games and accessories you can’t go wrong with

Get your console, get your games and get your accessories. There are plenty of fantastic titles and accessories for Sony’s next-gen gaming console, but below are some of our current favourites.
