PS5 pre-orders are now live! You can pre-order Sony's next-gen console now ahead of the official launch date of either 12th or 19th November (depending on your location).

The PS5 price is £449 ($499, €499, AU$749). Too expensive? You can grab a disc-less PS5 Digital Edition for only £359 ($399, €399, AU$599). Read our full PS5 vs PS5 Digital Edition comparison for more details.

Demand is extremely high and most retailers sold out of their first allocation of pre-orders in a day or so. Some retailers have even warned customers that that might not get their PS5 until 2021.

More PS5 pre-orders are due to become available ahead of launch, but you'll need to act fast if you want to secure one. To help you get your hands on a PS5 pre-order, here are some useful quick links to PS5 retailers: 

No luck yet? You're no alone. On the first day of pre-orders, Amazon sold out of PlayStation 5 consoles within 40 minutes. Other stockists' websites are crashing, and some are asking buyers to register their interest for when new PS5 stock arrives.

To give you the best possible chance of getting your hands on the coveted console before Christmas, we've assembled a definitive list of the top PS5 retailers offering pre-orders below.

Feeling lucky? Sony is offering US residents the chance to win a PS5 when they buy from the "2 for $5" menu at Burger King. The sweepstakes run from now until 22nd November.

Getting hold of most PS5 accessories is a whole lot easier than getting hold of a PS5. However, that could quite easily change so now would be a great time to secure the one(s) that take your fancy.

PlayStation 5 DualSense Wireless Controller – £59.99 ($69.99 / AU$109)
The PS5 only comes with one controller in the box, so this is a must-have for those who want to get stuck into multi-player gaming. It uses haptic feedback and adaptive triggers to make games more immersive. Available to pre-order right now.

PlayStation 5 Pulse 3D Wireless Headset – £89.95 ($99.99 / AU$159)
If you want to enjoy 3D audio, one of the one of the PS5's best features, you'll need one of these.

This lets you add yourself to gameplay videos or video chat during multiplayer marathons.

When will more PS5 stock arrive?

The PS5 will be released on 12th November in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea, and on 19th November in the rest of the world, including the UK.

Yet to secure your PS5? We feel your pain. The PS5 sold out quicker than even Sony expected, but we'd expect to see more stock filter onto the market. Slowly. Retailers will likely receive stock or allocation at random times in the coming days and weeks, so the best thing to do is keep an eye on this page and check all the retailers listed. 

Some stockists offer you the option to register your interest, and will alert you when stock arrives. It's also a good idea to follow retailers' social media accounts. If stock is about to drop, they may alert customers via Twitter and Instagram. 

UK retailer Currys recently put the price of the PS5 up by £2000 to prevent scalpers and bots from hoovering up all the PS5 pre-orders the instant they go live. Priority customers – those who register their interest via email – will get a special discount code that will reduce the PS5 price by £2000. Full details here.
