We’ve been waiting for more details on the PlayStation 5 since it was announced in 2019, and we’re finally in touching distance. The PS5 will ship on Nov. 12, and we know it’ll cost $400 for the digital-only version or $500 with Blu-ray. Despite being scheduled to kick off on Sept. 17, many retailers are already taking preorders — but the demand is crashing sites. Many are already sold out.
Not all retailers are quite ready for preordering — some are currently letting you register to preorder, and you’ll be notified when preordering begins. It’s like waiting in a line for the chance to wait in a different line.
