As You Wait for PS5 Restocks and Updates, Here are 4 Places Giving Away Free PS5s

Finding a PS5 has been a tough task for many gamers this holiday season. And while you wait for Walmart, Best Buy or other online retailers to restock Sony's next-gen console, some companies are using the hype to promote their own brands.

Some companies will only require hopefuls to retweet some messages, while others will have gamers compete for the highly coveted piece of tech.

PS5 giveaways seem to come and go, but here are four ways you can try to score a new PlayStation 5 right now.
