How to Pre-Order the PS5 in Australia Right Now [Updated]

How to Pre-Order the PS5 in Australia Right Now [Updated]

The long-awaited PS5 is almost here. Earlier this morning, Sony officially its release and when it’s arriving in Australia. So the next question is: how can you make sure you get the Playstation 5 as soon as it’s released? By getting your PS5 pre-order in ASAP.

Here’s where you can pre-order the PS5

Given the demand, most stores have already suspended pre-orders. JB Hi-Fi has temporarily suspended pre-orders on the PS5 and the Digital Edition but says it’ll re-open them when they have “more visibility on stock availability”. Same with Harvey Norman Australia’s listings for the console and the Digital Edition.

For now you can still grab one from Sony directly or Big W. But considering how fast everywhere else has sold out, you might want to hurry.

At EB Games, you can still pre-order both the Playstation 5 and the PlayStation 5 Digital edition — but only post-release.

Update 12:25pm:

EB Games has confirmed its post launch consoles have also sold out. It will be opening up pre-orders for 2021 consoles at 12:30pm AEST.

Update 1:08pm:

Amazon Australia was one of the last places till offering the PlayStation 5 console for pre-order on release day. It was even offering Prime members will also get $30 off a future applicable order if they pre-order the PS5 as well.

Sadly, it is also now also showing as being unavailable.
