The hard-to-buy PS5 seems to be in stock today at certain online stores in the US, and while we do highly recommend bundles from GameStop, Antonline and Costco (resellers can’t profit off of readily available games and accessories so availability lasts longer), you should stay away from overpriced PS5 options as well as scams in which you’ll never get the console. No one on social media will sell you a console.

  • Real PS5 restock alerts: Follow @mattswider, our PS5 restock Twitter tracker for notifications when the next PS5 restock is live at all US stores. It’s the fastest way to get real-time updates. Do not buy directly off Twitter users – which are all scams – only to the websites Matt points you to.

The biggest offender with the household name is Sears, which enables third-party resellers to charge $1,099 or more for a a variety of PS5 bundles. We’ve seen good bundles go for as much as $800 with three games included, an extra controller and the PS5 camera, but that’s far from the extras you’ll receive from this Sears bundle.

The deceptive photo used has fooled people into thinking it comes with the console, an extra PS5 controller, and a bunch of great accessories. In reality, there’s just one PS5 controller, a silicone case to “protect the controller from getting scratched” (really?), rubber thumb grips for the joysticks, storage stand for ten game discs, a no-name-brand headset, and a cheap DualSense Charger that isn’t the one from Sony.
