Update (Oct 27, 2021): We are starting to see a downward shift in eBay reseller pricing. Previously fetching prices in excess of $1,500, the Blu-ray version of the console can now be snapped up for under $1000. We've even seen listings below the RRP for brand new consoles. You will need to be quick though - any listings under $800 tend to be snapped up within minutes of being posted. Bookmark eBay's lowest price link and keep checking each day. Over the past fortnight, we've seen the price dip below $800 more than once. Good luck!

After seven highly successful years, the sun has finally set on the PlayStation 4. On 12 November 2020, Sony launched its next-generation video game console, the PlayStation 5 (PS5). Featuring vastly improved graphics with almost no load times, a brand new controller and a bevy of fresh first-party IP, it's poised to profoundly change the gaming landscape in the years to come. Crucially, it's also backwards compatible with most PlayStation 4 software, which means the majority of your old games will work on the new system.

Unfortunately, stock is currently extremely limited - most of the first manufacturing wave was snapped up by pre-ordering customers and the console has been very difficult to get ahold of ever since. The wait is therefore on for a new batch of consoles to hit Australian stores.

Confirmed retailers that will be selling the PS5 when stock becomes available again include eBay, EB Games, Amazon, The Gamesmen, Target, Harvey Norman, Big W and Vodafone (when bundled with eligible plans).

Here are the online stores where you might be able to buy the console. And if you are still wondering whether or not it is the right console for you, why not dive into our PlayStation 5 vs Xbox Series X guide.

Where to buy the PlayStation 5

Here's where you can buy the PlayStation 5 online


How much does the PlayStation 5 cost?

Sony will be releasing two consoles at launch: the standard edition and an all-digital version that lacks an optical disc drive (otherwise, the specifications are identical.)

  • The PlayStaton 5 Standard Edition will cost $749.95
  • PlayStaton 5 Digital Edition will cost $599.95

PS5 games are tipped to be more expensive; expect to pay around $10 more than full-priced current-gen titles. You can find a full list of every confirmed PS5 game here.

Which version should you buy?

Sony is launching two different versions of the PlayStation 5: the standard model and an all-digital option that lacks an optical disc drive. The latter version will retail for less but you won't be able to play physical games or Blu-ray/DVD movies. Instead, all media needs to be streamed or downloaded through an Internet connection. (Sony hasn't revealed how this will affect backwards compatibility with PS4 games. Hopefully, some form of proof-of-purchase will be utilised so that you can download and play your old games.)

With the exception of the disc slot, the two versions are identical beneath the hood. If you rarely use physical media, then the all-digital version might be worth considering to save some money. However, if you like watching Blu-ray movies and don't want to clutter your home entertainment unit with extra hardware, go for the standard edition.

In the second half of 2021, Sony released a revised version of both consoles. The chassis and components are identical with the exception of a smaller heatsink. This results in a physically lighter console at the expense of temperature. It reportedly runs hotter than the original version although this shouldn't affect the overall reliability. If you're buying a new PS5 now, it will likely be the version with a smaller heatsink.
