As we head into the holiday season of 2021, the chip shortages and scalpers continue to make it very, very difficult to buy a PS5. It’s still impossible to walk into a store and buy one like any other console.
While there’s no sure-fire way to guarantee one, we have some tips here for those keeping an eye out:
Tips For Ordering a PS5 This Holiday Season
- On November 2nd, it was reported that Sony utilized four Boeing planes to transport PS5 holiday stock to the UK. It’s thought that these are units set aside to provide stock for holiday shoppers in the region, so keep an eye out for when these go on sale!
- If you have an email and a PSN ID (they’re free to make by the way, you just need to put a card on file), then we highly encourage you to register for the chance to order a PS5 directly from Sony. This doesn’t guarantee one, but for what it’s worth, this method is how I was able to secure my own, and is very scalper-proof.
