Sony’s PS5 is available for pre-order at select retailers starting September 16 so fans anxiously awaiting the console launch can finally punch their ticket to the next-gen.

The PS5 launch is already shaping up to be one of the biggest in history with the newly announced PS Plus Collection, which will give users access to multiple big-name PS4 games.

Meanwhile, the launch lineup looks solid with Demon Souls and Spider-Man Miles Morales in the window while God of War Ragnarok and the Harry Potter RPG Hogwarts: Legacy coming in 2021.

That all said, if you’re as stoked as we are for either for the standard PS5 or Digital Edition, you’re wondering where you can preorder.
