While the Playstation 5 has become more available over the past few months, stock will likely decrease over Black Friday and Cyber Monday, especially as folks are taking advantage of Black Friday deals to grab stuff before Christmas. Luckily, if you’re a member of Best Buy’s TotalTech, you can grab a PS5 disc version in time for Christmas without worrying about retailers running out of stock. Best Buy will be restocking the PS5 at 9 a.m. PT, so you need to be ready and act fast before all the stock gets sold out.

You can grab a TotalTech subscription for $199 for a whole year, which is slightly expensive, but it gives you access to many perks, plus a PS5 for $500; that’s a pretty good deal. With a total cost to you of $700, that’s cheaper than you might find on the open market or with scalpers, so it’s worth it, especially if you’re a regular Best Buy customer and can take advantage of stuff like the Best Buy Black Friday deals and other special deals through TotalTech. If you aren’t familiar with Best Buy’s TotalTech, it’s a subscription service that nets you a host of benefits, including special access to deals that aren’t generally available, access to things such as Geek Squad support, extended product protection, and even free delivery and installation on a few items.

As for the PS5 bundle, you’ll get the PS5, a stand, and a PS5 controller. Sadly, no games are included in the bundle, so you might also want to look through these PS5 game deals for some games to pick up so that you have something to play. We’d also suggest looking through our list of the best PS5 exclusives if you want stuff you can only get on the PS5, or if you don’t care about exclusives as much, then we have a great list of the best PS5 games you grab for this year. While you’re at it, you may want to grab an extra PS5 controller for friends from one of these controller deals, and this deal includes some pre-owned options as well, so you don’t have to spend as much on something new.

The PlayStation 5 has taken the spotlight from the PlayStation 4, but the previous-generation console won't be going away any time soon. While some gamers have already upgraded to the PlayStation 5, there are still those who are sticking with the PlayStation 4, and some who are just starting their experience with the console. It will be easier to find gaming deals for PlayStation 4 games, including exclusives like The Last of Us Part II and Final Fantasy VII Remake, and its accessories, such as DualShock 4 controllers and gaming headsets. The PlayStation 4 has a massive library of games, so if you're thinking about playing as many of them as possible, you should invest in the console to make sure that you're well-equipped to last a few years.

While there remains a lot of interest in the previous-generation console, the PlayStation 5 continues to blow away expectations with its innovative DualSense controller, lightning-fast loading speeds, and amazing next-generation games. However, most of the PlayStation deals from retailers will focus on the PlayStation 4, as well as its games and accessories, as the supply for the PlayStation 5 remains erratic.
