Not if you are willing to spend well above MSRP. I am seeing them on Craigslist for a premium.

Yes, as mentioned, depending on how much you are willing to pay.

People are desperate to make money this year and have been buying any desirable tech to flip for normally outrageous prices.

Not if you're patient.

Since they're expected to be in stock frequently at Amazon you can use a availability alert service like CamelCamelCamel to let you know when they have it.

Walmart is expected to have new stock every day. You can use a Walmart inventory checker like BrickSeek to see what's available near you. Refresh the page every few hours and you're likely to find a store with stock within a few days. (Whether it'll be there when you show up to buy it is another matter.)

You can also open a bunch of tabs to Amazon, BestBuy, Walmart, GameStop and Target and reload every few hours. Links are here: [www.cnet.com]

This is getting hard to find too.
I totally don't need it. Complete waste of space and money. BUT I WANT IT.

If he is buying just pay the Craigslist/ebay premium and make life easy on yourself.

The PS5 is in extremely short supply this year. I believe production issues are part of the problem. Even resellers with bots are having issues. I haven't been able to score any online, and I was on top of things in regards to preorders and release dates and times. This is very unusual. Thankfully Amazon has blocked third party sales. I wish eBay would do so as well. Facebook seems to have put a clamp on it as well. If these platforms and others would unilaterally act to block PS5 sales, that would effectively kill resellers.

And to answer the original question, yes you are doomed on this quest for this year anyway. It will be more difficult than any year past. Forget about it. Try online anyway, you may be lucky.

FYI, BrickSeek may start showing stock coming in at your local Walmarts, but these are being held for Black Friday and won't be sold now. And I think that BF stock will be only sold online for instore pickup. I'd advise going to your local Walmart and asking the manager of the electronics department exactly how it's going to go down.

I was able to put one in the cart at Walmart but by the time I got to the cart, they were sold out. Not sure how that works, but that's what happened.

Does he have a console now? I ask because the ps3 and 4 when hooked to hdtv still look great . And there are plenty of games available. The cost would be so much less. You could get a ps3 and a stack games for $200. My 3 cents.
