The PlayStation 5 standard-edition console is back on sale at Amazon Australia (but stock is extremely limited).

This is not a drill: Amazon Australia has managed to get its hands on some fresh PlayStation 5 consoles. Unlike the previous drop, this is the fully-fledged Standard Edition console rather than the inferior Digital Edition. That means you can use it to play physical game discs, including all your old PlayStation 4 games.

The new PS5 listing can be found here. However, there is a very big catch.

The asking price is currently set at $1,200. That's a markup of nearly $450 compared to the Australian RRP of $749.95.

We personally wouldn't recommend paying such an exorbitant amount of money, but the fact remains that the PlayStation 5 is nearly impossible to buy brand new at any price. Indeed, second-hand models on eBay routinely sell for over $1,000.

If you're desperate to own a PS5, you're unlikely to find it cheaper than this. (You can blame ongoing chip shortages and shipping issues. Unfortunately, nobody has any idea when things will stabilise.) Here's the link to buy:

About PlayStation 5

The PS5 is well on its way to being the best-selling console this generation, with the PlayStation 5 reportedly being more in demand than the Xbox Series X in 84% of countries. 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.
