We're a year and a half after the release of the next-gen console, but the situation around PS5 inventory doesn't seem to be getting any better.

Because all this time, getting your hands on the Sony console has been a test of strength.

The fault is too low supply compared to demand and other external factors such as the global shortage of chips.

The machine is sold out in dribs and drabs depending on available stocks.

Scalpers don't help, ready to jump on arrivals of new PS5 stocks to resell them at exorbitant prices.

But fortunately, getting a PS5 is not impossible, quite the contrary.

There are very simple tips to apply to maximize your chances of getting the console you've been dreaming of.

Not to mention that Sony offers two versions, the standard and the digital.

The second version is easier to buy because it does not have a BluRay player.

With the arrival of the new PlayStation Plus catalog in June, the machine has a good argument by betting on the dematerialized.

PS5 Standard Edition or PS5 Digital Edition: take your pick

Sony offers two versions of its console.

The standard PS5 is 499 euros against 399 euros for the digital PS5.

Beyond a difference of 100 euros, the difference is made at the level of the BluRay player.

Better to opt for the first if you do not want to draw a line on the second-hand market or have a preference for physical games.

Collectors will appreciate the standard PS5 for this reason.

These titles really belong to you unlike those dematerialized.

But beware, the digital PS5 also has good arguments.

With the new PlayStation Plus scheduled for June 2022, you will have access to a large catalog of games like Xbox Game Pass.

In addition to saving 100 euros, access a wide selection of great video game experiences.

This version stands out for its quality-price ratio that is hard to beat.

Especially since the machine is much less popular than the standard PS5.

Although produced in smaller quantities, the situation regarding digital PS5 stocks may be interesting to study.

In terms of features, it's exactly the same spec sheet for both versions.

You will enjoy sublime graphics and stunning performance.

With all these elements at your disposal, you are able to know which console best meets your expectations.

But never lose sight of the fact that in the end, the standard PS5 remains the better of the two thanks to its BluRay player, a significant argument.
