Play Station 5 Console Availability on Launch Day and Beyond

I did not pre-order a PS5 for my kid because I grossly underestimated how much demand there is on the product and how much my kid would want it for Christmas. Of course it is now way too late for pre-ordering. Being a complete noob to video game consoles, I have a few questions:

1. How likely is it that ANY online or physical store would have stock on launch date; or is it likely that everything has been sold via pre-ordering.
2. If I were to go line up somewhere launch date, which store would most likely have physical stock available? i.e. Do stores like Costco do pre-orderings?
3. Since launch is November, is Sony likely to release more before Christmas?

PS: I truly hate the individuals who are already selling the units for $1800, a 200% markup because they horded the pre-orders.

I don't think anyone currently knows the answer to your questions.
