The Horizon Forbidden West PlayStation 5 bundle is available now at Best Buy

Still looking for a PlayStation 5? Today might be your lucky day: you now have the option to purchase the PS5 on disc as part of the Horizon Forbidden West bundle for $549.99. Best of all, unlike some of Best Buy’s old console restocks, this one is available online for the general public after waiting in a short queue.

While there’s no guarantee you’ll be able to grab the PS5 today, there are several things you can do to reduce verification time and improve your chances. First, be sure to log in ahead of time to ensure your billing and shipping information is up to date. Also, be sure to click the “Add to Cart” button to enter the queue as well, and be prepared to possibly verify your account while you’re online.

PlayStation 5

Sony’s flagship next-gen console, which includes a disc drive, lets you play digital and physical games for the PS4 and PS5.

Once you are in the queue, do not refresh the page as it uses an automated system. You also don’t have to open multiple tabs, as Best Buy’s recently updated queuing system doesn’t always work well when you do. However, keep your phone nearby in case you run into any issues on your PC or laptop.

If you got started online, you can also head to a physical Best Buy store, as stock has started to become more readily available in recent weeks. If you don’t want to call your local stores one by one, sites like gpudrops.com are regularly updated with information on PS5 inventory and other in-demand items from various retailers.
