Hunting for the PS5: New bundle release announced

Since the release of Sony’s PlayStation 5 (PS5) in November 2020, many companies have had difficulties keeping them on the shelves. With each newly released bundle for the PS5 comes a swarm of gamers fighting to get their own.

Sony has quickly found that they can never keep up with the demand for their new PS5. Even two years after release, the demand has well exceeded the supply. Companies such as Amazon, Walmart, Target, Best Buy and GameStop are constantly on their toes when restocking one of the best-selling consoles today.

Although it is possible for consumers to find a PS5 for sale on eBay, Amazon or Facebook Marketplace, it is always a gamble. The seller typically will bump the price up by $150-$300 than original market price.

With the holidays coming up, gamers, parents and PlayStation enthusiasts alike are on the hunt for the infamous PS5. Recently, a chance to get your hands on one was announced and it quickly sold out.

Developer Santa Monica Studio released the new action-packed adventure video game God of War Ragnarök on Nov. 9. With a 9.9/10 rating by IMDb, 10/10 by IGN, and 94% by Metacritic, this game became popular very quickly.

Sony jumped onto the opportunity to release more PS5s and released a bundle deal with the new game on the same day. At the time of the launch, the PlayStation Direct store was selling God of War Ragnarök PS5 Bundle for $559 and $459 for the digital console edition.

Within less than 24 hours, it is now completely sold out at the PlayStation Direct store, Best Buy, Target, GameStop and Walmart.

As the holiday season arrives, and with Black Friday coming soon, it is recommended by many critics to not wait until the official day of Black Friday to find a PS5. Jump on it quickly. It is expected for restocks to be coming soon before the holidays begin.
