The PlayStation 5 is available right now through Sony

The PlayStation 5 is available right now through Sony

You’re in luck if you’re still trying to nab a PlayStation 5 as Sony is once again selling the console just days after holding its last restock event. Right now, you can buy the standard, disc-based console with a digital copy of Horizon Forbidden West for $549.99. You’ll also get free shipping if you buy either a PS5 game or select controllers with your purchase.

Today’s restock event is rare in that Sony typically requires you to enter an online queue prior to making a purchase. In those instances, we recommend that you log into your Sony and PlayStation Network accounts in advance and double-check to make sure your credit card details are still accurate, which should help once you make it through the queue.

Don’t get discouraged if you’re not able to land Sony’s next-gen console today, however. After all, picking up a PS5 is starting to get easier, especially now that Sony and other trailers are consistently holding restock events again.

Accessories that will go along quite nicely with your new PS5

Whether you score a PS5 today or later on, you’re going to need some great games. Here are some of our recommended PS5 titles, as well as a few standout accessories.

Sony Pulse 3D headset (black)

Sony’s own wireless gaming headset is made to showcase the PS5’s 3D audio effect and also works on the PS4. This version matches the midnight black DualSense controller and PS5 console covers.

Midnight black DualSense controller

The midnight black DualSense controller sports the same hardware as the original — haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, etc. — only with a two-tone design reminiscent of PS2, PS3, and PS4 consoles.

PlayStation Plus (annual membership)

PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now prepaid membership cards can still be redeemed toward Sony’s three new tiers of its revised service: PlayStation Plus Essential, Extra, and Premium. All of these subscriptions offer online play, with varying degrees of downloadable games included as part of the membership.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
