If you live in Australia, a lot of retailers are planning to re-open orders for the PS5 on launch day. Guess that means I'll be secretly refreshing my tabs at work to try and get one. It's speculated that the orders are for the second shipment, so arriving by December 15th.
If you're shopping for a PS5, social media might be able to help you out.
I found a Twitter account that was committed to tweeting what stores have stock as soon as it's available. Then I turned on Twitter notifications for that account. That's really easy to do, there's a bell on their Twitter page you can click. I placed my phone in front of me at work and immediately went to the stores when I saw the notification on my phone's lockscreen. Ended up getting my mine from Amazon with no issues while checking out.

The PlayStation Plus Collection will be an added benefit to the existing PS4 benefits that PlayStation Plus members receive for a single subscription price – no additional membership fee required. Once you redeem a game from the PlayStation Plus Collection, you can keep the games for as long as you are an active PlayStation Plus member. PS4 games redeemed from the PlayStation Plus Collection and played on the PS5 console will see benefits such as increased loading speed and improved or more stable framerates with PS5’s Game Boost.
A small interesting quirk related to PS+ Collection, while this is a PS5 exclusive benefit for PS+ subs and the games can only be redeem via PS5, the games can be downloaded and played on your PS4 after being redeemed (as long as your account still has a PS+ sub). Now why would you do and not play them on PS5 with better performance and quality? I don't know, save space in the PS5 storage?
