Want to buy a PS5? Well, so do millions of other people and the stock levels that we've seen so far are tight. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we've seen them stay in stock is like 15 - 20 minutes, and that's at random times, so finding one for yourself can be a difficult task. Sony has warned that it will be difficult to find stock, but retailers are promising more is coming.

In our PS5 review, we called it a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller.

Update, December 17: Walmart will have more PS5 stock on December 17.

Which PS5 games you should buy?

There are plenty of amazing launch games on the PS5 right now. As for the best PS5 games you can get, we recommend titles like Demon's Souls and Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Both make the most of the console's graphics and performance boosts compared to its predecessor, and in Demon's Souls' case in particular, the remake is immaculate. As for Spider-Man, Insomniac knocked it out of the park once again, creating not only a great superhero tale but a great story for Miles as a person, too.

There are also some kid-friendly games like Sackboy: A Big Adventure and Bugsnax that have charmed a lot of people with their cute styles and fun gameplay. You can't get either of these on an Xbox yet, so PS5 is the way to go if you want to play them.
