Tech News and Reviews

Shopping for a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X these days is starting to feel like hunting for toilet paper during the early days of the pandemic. Thankfully, however, if you still haven’t been able to land one, right now Target is giving you another shot, with online ordering for in-store pickup at stores near you.

Listings for the $499.99 PS5 with a disc drive and the $399.99 PS5 digital edition are now both up, along with the $499.99 Xbox Series X. And if you already have a next-gen console (or don’t need one to play last-gen games) Microsoft’s novelty $99.99 Xbox Series mini-fridge is available now too.

We recommend making sure you sign in to your Target account early while you wait, preload any payment information, and make sure your billing and shipping information is current. It’ll reduce the time it takes to check out, thus increasing your chances of landing the console. Because these orders are for in-store pickup, keep trying to add your items to the cart even if they appear to be sold out at first — stores near you may load their available stock a few minutes later, or reload it in waves.

If you don’t manage to nab one today, don’t worry – we will continue posting updates as more restocks happen. We are also happy to save you money on everyday purchases – which include the hottest video games, gaming peripherals, and more – so feel free to subscribe to our newsletter. Our team has also included some great gaming accessories below you can enjoy in the meantime as well, some of which are even on sale.

PlayStation 5

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

PlayStation 5 Digital Edition

The PS5 Digital Edition costs $400. Compared to the standard PS5, this console is $100 less and does not include a Blu-ray disc drive.

Xbox Series X

The Xbox Series X is Microsoft’s flagship console, serving as its most powerful (and biggest) option.

Accessories to go along with your console

The midnight black DualSense controller sports the same hardware as the original — haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, etc. — only with a two-tone design reminiscent of PS2, PS3, and PS4 consoles.

Deathloop (physical version)

Xbox Wireless Headset

You don’t have to miss a call while you game thanks to Microsoft’s Xbox Wireless Headset, which often sells for $89 instead of its full $100. In our review, we found it to be a comfortable, intuitively designed headset that’s well worth its cost. In addition to working well with Xbox consoles, it can connect to another device simultaneously via Bluetooth.
