Where to buy PlayStation 5 online in Canada 2021
Here all the places you can expect to buy the fifth PlayStation console in Canada.
Finding a PlayStation 5 in the wild has been surprisingly difficult. To help you on your quest, we’ve rounded up all the stores that promise to stock the PS5 in Canada.
Where to buy the PlayStation 5
After seven highly successful years, the sun has finally set on the PlayStation 4. On 12 November 2020, Sony launched its next-generation video game console, the PlayStation 5 (PS5). Featuring vastly improved graphics with almost no load times, a brand new controller and a bevy of fresh first-party IP, it’s poised to profoundly change the gaming landscape in the years to come. Crucially, it’s also backwards compatible with most PlayStation 4 software, which means the majority of your old games will work on the new system.
Unfortunately, stock is currently extremely limited – most of the first manufacturing wave was snapped up by pre-ordering customers and the console has been very difficult to get ahold of ever since. The wait is therefore on for a new batch of consoles to hit Canadian stores.
Here are the online stores where you should be able to buy the console if you visit at the right time.
How much does the PlayStation 5 cost?
Sony released two consoles at launch: The standard edition and an all-digital version that lacks an optical disc drive (otherwise, the specifications are identical).
- The PlayStation 5 Standard Edition costs $629.99
- The PlayStation 5 Digital Edition costs $499.99
PS5 games are generally more expensive too, so you can expect to pay around $10 more than full-priced current-gen titles. You can find a full list of every confirmed PS5 game here.
Which version should you buy?
There are currently two different versions of the PlayStation 5: the standard model and an all-digital option that lacks an optical disc drive. The latter version will retail for less but you won’t be able to play physical games or Blu-ray/DVD movies. Instead, all media needs to be streamed or downloaded through an Internet connection. (Sony hasn’t revealed how this will affect backwards compatibility with PS4 games. Hopefully, some form of proof-of-purchase will be utilised so that you can download and play your old games.)
With the exception of the disc slot, the two versions are identical beneath the hood. If you rarely use physical media, then the all-digital version might be worth considering to save some money. However, if you like watching Blu-ray movies and don’t want to clutter your home entertainment unit with extra hardware, go for the standard edition.
