Secure Sony’s next-gen console from day one right here.
Following a flurry of excitement and barrage of announcements in the latest PlayStation 5 Showcase, retailers are starting to put their PS5 pre-order pages live.
Sony’s next-gen console isn’t scheduled for release until 12th November in the US and 19th November in the UK and Europe, but you can already ensure you’ll be getting it from day one right here. Of course, being an early adopter comes at a price. Sony announced that the PS5 will cost £449.99/$499.99/€499.99, while the PS5 Digital Edition set you back £359.99/$399.99/€399.99.
As we spot any more retailers offering a PS5 pre-order, we’ll be sure to add them to the list below. You’ll also find any PS5 bundles here if any are made available at this early stage. We wouldn’t count on it, though. The best you might find is a game like Spider-Man: Miles Morales or Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart included for full price.
A PS5 pre-order will cost £449.99/$499.99/€499.99 – that includes the PS5 console and a PS5 DualSense controller. A copy of Astro’s Playroom is also included for free!
You can also go for the PS5 Digital Edition for £359.99/$399.99/€399.99 instead. Remember, though, that’s the version without a disc drive. You’ll have to acquire all of your games digitally, but you do save some money on the upfront cost of the console.
Currently, we’re only seeing pre-orders available at Game but will add to this list as more pop up!

On top of the PS5 console, you can also pre-order the full range of accessories revealed in June’s debut stream. You can get yourself an extra DualSense controller, the Pulse 3D headset with dual noise-cancelling mics or the Media Remote if you intend to do a lot of binge-watching on your PS5.
All of these PS5 accessories and more are available to pre-order below at the following stores. Each one shares the same release date of the PS5.

Finally, the games. Remember, a fair few PS4 games can be automatically upgraded to their PS5 counterparts once the console has been released, so that might save you a few quid depending on what games you want to try out from day one. As for fully blown PS5 game pre-orders, we’ll drop any we find right here:
That price point is surprisingly in line with what Microsoft revealed for the Xbox Series X just last week. The Series S is much cheaper, but it is a less powerful console.
At least, though, we’ve got a better idea of what PS5 games will be available from launch. The latest PlayStation showcase unveiled Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Demon’s Souls and Sackboy! A Big Adventure.
Still undecided? We’ve got various deep dives into all aspects of the PS5 for you to peruse. Those learned folks over at Digital Foundry have got into the real nitty-gritty of the PS5 specs to ponder how the console will perform. There’s also a detailed list of all the PS5 games that have confirmed for launch, including all exclusives and first-party releases.
What do you think you’ll do? Take the plunge now or hold off until later once the PS5 has been out in the wild for a few months? Whatever the case, we’ll be posting all the top pre-order offers for all the next-gen consoles over at Jelly Deals on Twitter.
