Forget PS5 restocking: this is when you should buy this console

The PS5 is almost impossible to find. This was the case during pre-orders; that was the case at launch; and I predict that it will be well after Christmas. Although stocks may stabilize as early as the end of January, there is a good chance that we will have to wait a few more months before you can walk into any electronics store and buy Sony’s newest console.

The good news is that you don’t really need a PS5 right now, at least if you have a PS4 or comparable game system. However, although I do not recommend abandoning everything for a PS5 just yet, the fact is that the PS4 is down and console players will have to update sooner rather than later. If now is not the right time to buy a PS5, when will it be?

Although each individual’s case varies slightly, we can try to find the “best” time to buy a PS5 based on three main factors: game selection, hardware and price. And, of course, if you really want a PS5, then the best time to buy one is “as soon as you can find a refueling. ”
