With the COVID-19 pandemic and console shortages, GameStop tended to limit its PS5 sales to online bundles. However, people will have a chance to get one from a physical store this weekend. On May 28, 2022, retail stores in the continental United States will offer them. However, in order to get one, someone will need to be a PowerUp Rewards Pro Member. As a reminder, that cost $14.99 per year.
GameStop didn’t announce what sorts of PS5 bundles it will offer. However, in the past they tend to have certain commonalities. The bundles involving the standard version tend to include at least two games. They might also include things like an additional DualSense controller, PlayStation Network cards, PlayStation Plus memberships, and headsets. For example, in April 2022 the bundles included Gran Turismo 7 and Horizon Forbidden West. Those tended to be between $725 to $750.
The GameStop digital PS5 bundles in the past wouldn’t come with any games. Instead, they would feature things like PlayStation Plus memberships, PlayStation Network gift cards, DualSense controllers, and peripherals. As the digital version of the console is cheaper, those bundles usually cost between $625 and $650.
GameStop will have the PlayStation 5 in its retail stores on May 28, 2022. People need an active PowerUp Rewards Pro membership to buy one.
