According to the PlayStation 5 product page at Best Buy, Totaltech members will be able to purchase a console beginning Nov. 7 at noon ET / 9:00 am PT. It’s rare for a retailer to make information for console additions public in this way, making this an excellent opportunity for Totaltech members to score a PS5. It’s unclear whether someone trying to buy a console has to go through Best Buy’s queuing system to buy one; However, Best Buy’s product page for the PlayStation 5 states that it has “updated their reservation process,” whatever that means. Please note that this addition only applies to the standard disc-based PS5, which has only recently become truly generally available as part of various bundles.
