If you missed out on pre-ordering a PlayStation 5, here are a few options worth trying.

The PS5 launch has been a chaotic mess with demand for the new console far exceeding supply. This morning, the PlayStation 5 sold out everywhere within minutes. The Sony Store, EB Games, Amazon, JB Hi-Fi and Target have all run out of stock. (You can blame this on the huge number of pre-orders back in September.)

If you missed out on buying a PlayStation 5, your chances of nabbing one before Christmas are fast diminishing. However, there are still a few options which we have listed below.


Register at Amazon

Amazon switched on its PS5 product page at 9am this morning, but it sold out within minutes. It is highly unlikely Amazon will be receiving more units until early 2021. With that said, the online giant is likely to be among the first retailers to receive a fresh wave of stock, which could happen sooner than we think.

Buy on eBay

Desperate times call for desperate measures. If money is no object, there are plenty of sellers on eBay who will be more than happy to part you from your cash. Expect to swallow a huge premium though, with most listings hovering between $1,200 and $1,400. That's almost double the RRP. Still, if you're determined to own a PS5 regardless of the cost, this is a surefire option.

Buy through Vodafone

Vodafone has a surprise PS5 deal that is well worth considering. For a limited time, customers with 2 or more eligible services will be able to purchase the console on a 12-, 24- or 36-month interest-free repayment plan. Eligible services include $30+ postpaid mobile and NBN plans that qualify for its Bundle and Save discounts. You can find the cheapest way to buy a PS5 from Vodafone at the link below.
