PlayStation fans struggling to locate a console may be able to find one at GameStop soon, according to a recent update to its website. Select GameStop locations will have PS5 bundles available for sale tomorrow, January 27. Prospective PS5 owners will have to find if their nearby location has one through its store locator feature.
According to GameStop, both PS5 and PS5 Digital bundles will be available, and they will run PlayStation fans back about $600 to $750. These PS5 bundles will be available exclusively for GameStop’s PowerUp Rewards Pro members, a membership that’s locked behind an annual rate of around $15. Although these bundles haven’t been shown off, PlayStation players can expect several attachments with the PS5 such as a GameStop gift card and PS Plus subscription.
Due to the ongoing shortages of PS5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles, bundles like these GameStop ones have become more common, and they often quickly sell out as well despite appealing less to scalpers. Some PS5 bundles like those offered by GameStop in the past include a game or two that PlayStation fans can play on day one as they anticipate the next big release. One of the games that GameStop has offered in the past was Call of Duty: Vanguard, which players could further delve into using the included PS Plus subscription.
Finding a GameStop retail location that has PS5 bundles tomorrow is dependent on a PlayStation fan’s zip code and GameStop hasn’t stated which areas are more likely to be restocked. Despite the shortage of new-gen consoles, both the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S have managed to sell impressively as Microsoft recently confirmed that the Xbox Series X/S is its fastest-selling console generation. The Nintendo Switch also remains successful as its lifetime sales recently surpassed the original PlayStation and are catching up to the PS4 and Nintendo DS family of handhelds.
In addition to the bundle add-ons at GameStop, PlayStation fans can also expect the new DualSense controller to be included, and some previous bundles have included two. The image teased by GameStop on its website hints at the possibility of a DualSense included in the bundle, but it may just be highlighting the advanced controller that comes with the PS5 regularly. It’s likely that the contents of these GameStop bundles will be revealed at the retail locations themselves, and they may each offer their own variations of the PS5 bundles.
