PlayStation Direct regularly opens up a queue for shoppers to buy the PS5 (and anything else on the first-party site), but it’s often over an hour wait and unclear if the PS5 is even available.
Still, it’s worth checking PS Direct regularly, as it’s the only store still releasing the PS5 on a somewhat regular basis.
Note that finding a queue on PS Direct doesn’t necessarily mean the PS5 is in stock; it simply indicates high traffic to the store. It never hurts to jump in and wait if you find the queue and you’ll be at your computer for a while, but know there’s no guarantee it’ll be in stock by the time you get through.
PS5 stock is still difficult to come by, but don’t give up yet, we’re bringing you all the latest updates as Sony promises more stock before the end of the year.
