For those who haven’t grabbed a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X yet, today Target is giving you another chance. Retailer listings are online for the PS5 at $ 499.99 with a disc drive, the PS5 Digital Edition at $ 399.99, and the Xbox Series X at $ 499.99. Target does its early morning replenishments, where the listings go live and read as “Sold Out” before they go live and the Add to Cart button appears – which is anytime now.
To ensure you have the best chance of landing on the console, make sure you’re signed in to your Target account, with payment information preloaded, and verify that your billing and shipping address is up to date. Not all of these steps guarantee that you will be able to get a console, but it will definitely reduce the time it takes to verify and possibly get one.
Also, since these target orders are usually for in-store pickup, keep trying to add items to the cart even if they initially appear sold out. Your local stores can load their available stock a few minutes later, or reload it in waves.
If you can’t get one today, don’t give up. Some members of our own team only managed to land their consoles of choice after repeated attempts. We will also continue to post updates as we re-order.
In the meantime, we’re happy to save you money on your daily purchases – which include the most popular video games, gaming peripherals, and more – so don’t hesitate to sign up for our newsletter. Our team have also included some great gaming accessories below that you can also enjoy in the meantime, some of which are even on sale.
Sony’s flagship next-generation console, which includes a disc player, lets you play digital and physical games for PS4 and PS5.

The PS5 digital edition costs $ 400. Compared to the standard PS5, this console costs $ 100 less and does not include a Blu-ray disc player.
Xbox X series
The Xbox Series X is Microsoft’s flagship console, serving as its most powerful (and biggest) option.
Accessories for PlayStation 5
DualSense controller midnight black
The midnight black DualSense controller sports the same hardware as the original – haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, and more. – only with a two-tone black design reminiscent of the PS2, PS3 and PS4 consoles.
PS5 Controller DualSense cosmic red
Like the original DualSense controller, the Cosmic Red model features adaptive triggers and haptic feedback, but with a crisp red and black design.
Sony Pulse 3D Headphones
Sony’s Pulse 3D wireless gaming headset is worth the price of around $ 100 if you want a wireless model that allows audio to shine in some PS5 exclusives. It looks fantastic with titles like Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Demon’s Souls, as well as more recent hits like Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. Like the console, this headset has been a bit hard to find, but it’s coming back to stock more frequently these days. Sony also released a midnight black version of the headset for $ 100, however, it’s slightly harder to find in stock.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift apart
Insomniac Games’ latest adventure in the Ratchet & Clank series is the funniest entry yet. It’s also the first to launch on PS5, and it’s both a showcase for stunning graphics and fast load speeds.
The latest release from Arcane Studios – the team behind Prey and Dishonored – is a masterpiece in many ways, an open-ended mystery that’s thrilling, action-packed, and just the right amount of weird.
PlayStation Plus (annual subscription)
A PlayStation Plus subscription allows PlayStation 4 and PS5 owners to play games online, download free titles every month, and take advantage of PS Store discounts.
Xbox Series X Accessories
Xbox Wireless Controller
Microsoft’s latest Xbox controller has a Share button and a USB-C charging port if you decide to use the optional rechargeable battery.
Xbox Wireless Headset
You don’t have to miss a call while you play with Microsoft’s Xbox Wireless Headset, which currently sells for $ 96.99 instead of $ 99.99 at Target. In our review, we found these to be a comfortable and intuitive headset that is well worth the cost. Besides working well with Xbox consoles, it can simultaneously connect to another device via Bluetooth.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (three months)
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate offers access to over 100 games, including recently released Doom, Gears 5, and Halo Infinite, which you can play on multiple devices.
Call of Duty: The Vanguard
