PlayStation 5 was quietly restocked on Thursday at Target and PlayStation Direct, and there are rumours of restocking at Walmart and Best Buy next week.
Check below for the latest updates on PS5 availability at major retailers and when the gaming community expects to see the next stock replenishment.
You can also find out which PS5 stock trackers, Twitter accounts and message boards are worth tracking to have a better chance of finding out where to buy the PS5 and be ready when it becomes available.
Walmart PS5 Stock
Walmart told Washington Newsday that it would replenish both the PS5 and Xbox X series for additional inventory release during the holidays, but did not provide any specific dates.
However, several Twitter users reported that they were informed by their local stores that Walmart will have more PS5 inventory on December 8. This is not an official date, but in any case it might be worth taking a closer look at Walmart’s stock replenishment on Tuesday.
On Thursday, Walmart seemed to accidentally put the PS5 on the list for $4.99 even though it was not in stock.
PlayStation Direct PS5 inventory
PlayStation Direct opened its queue for the PS5 yesterday at around 5pm ET, despite limited stocks being sold out.
PS5 inventory target
Target refilled the PS5 console in the early hours of Thursday morning and it sold out quickly. Some gamers think that Target might release more stock in the early hours of Friday morning, so keep an eye on the Target app and website.
Refill Costco PS5 stock
Costco restocked the PS5 on Thursday, but the console is now out of stock and it is unclear when it will be back in stock.
Amazon PS5 back in stock
Amazon is currently sold out of the PS5, but some Twitter users believe Amazon may be back in stock next week. There are no confirmed replenishment dates, but it might be worth checking Amazon regularly.
Refill Best Buy PS5 stocks
There are rumors in the social media about a restocking of PS5 stocks at Best Buy on either Monday or Tuesday next week, so check the website early next week. Please note, however, that these dates are only rumors.
GameStop PS5 Refill
GameStop is currently sold out of the PS5 console, and the retailer has not announced when it will have more in stock.
To increase your chances of being ready when your PS5 refills, turn on notifications for retailers and accounts that provide details and rumors about drops such as @Wario64, @PS5RestockAlert, @PS5Drop, and @PS5_Restockk.
PS5 stock trackers such as PopFinder and BrickSeek are also helpful tools and can be used as indicators of where the consoles are stocked.
There are numerous message boards on players’ Reddit and Discord servers that update each other when they find stock or when a retailer releases more PS5 consoles. Participate in these forums and servers to keep up to date without having to constantly check retailers’ websites all day.
It may also be worth contacting your local retailer for more information on when the store is expected to have more inventory.
