The PlayStation 5 has now been on sale for a pretty long time now, but stock is still scarce.

Here's where to go to try and get your PS5 or PS5 Digital Edition.

The standard PS5 with its disc drive costs $499 / £449, while the PS5 Digital Edition is $399 / £359. 

The standard PlayStation 5 price is on a par with the Xbox Series X, though, interestingly, the PS5 works out as a little more expensive in certain countries.

The PS5 Digital Edition clocks in at $100 / £110 more than the Xbox Series S, but has a better spec list as it is essentially identical to the standard PS5, just without a 4K Blu-ray drive.

Various bundles are available, including the DualSense controller, while there's also a charging dock, headphones, HD camera and a media remote as available accessories.

Explained: Latest PlayStation 5 stock update

Thanks to COVID-19 complications, semiconductor shortages and overwhelming demand, the PlayStation 5 has remained extremely sought after for almost a year now.

So, are stock shortages becoming more infrequent - and will the PlayStation 5 be more readily available heading into the holiday season?

In short, yes - hopefully. 

The latest word on stock shortages actually came straight from Sony, who noted in a call to investors in August that it should be able to produce 12 million PlayStation 5 units before the end of the current fiscal year - 31 March 2022. 

This relates back to the semiconductor shortage that plagued the industry since the pandemic began.

How quickly it can start delivering this new wave of consoles remains to be seen, of course, but the hope is that the worst of the shortages are over.
