PS5 Restock Tracker Latest Update: Check Stock Ahead Of Black Friday
27 September 2022
Check your email today if you signed up at PS Direct to be notified when PS5s are restocked. PlayStation Direct sent out more invitations to buy the PS5 (PlayStation 5). The latest PS Direct restock for people who have been invited will be available at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET. After the round for people with invitations is over, there is a chance that a public queue will start.
Despite being a year old and selling many units, the PS5 is hard to locate. You’ve never seen one in a shop, and online stock is nearly depleted. More folks will want PS5 during the holidays. Finding a PS5 or PS5 Digital in time for the holidays may be challenging, but it won’t be impossible.
We’ve listed all the stores selling the PS5 and PS5 Digital to help you. We’ll change this article when a restock is announced or shows up out of the blue.
At big stores like Best Buy, Walmart, and GameStop, the PS5 comes back in stock at least twice a week. Sony also restocks at PS Direct pretty often. But you must be quick (and lucky) to buy one before they are all gone. Consoles usually sell out in minutes, if not seconds, so you need quick hands and good timing to get one.
Starting the 22nd of November, during Black Friday week, Walmart will have the PS5 in stock. The console will only be sold online; as expected, there won’t be many of them to go around. We’d expect Walmart to sell out quickly, just like other restocks, but we wouldn’t be surprised if they released stock in waves throughout the week. On Thanksgiving, select GameStop stores will have the PS5 and PS5 Digital in stock. We’re still waiting for ads from other stores, but we expect more stores to have the PS5 and PS5 Digital in stock for Black Friday.
Remember that PS5 restocks might only be available to paid members at certain stores in the coming weeks.
Best Buy just started selling a $200-a-year membership called Totaltech, and members can only get certain restocks. The same thing has been done for Walmart’s $98/year membership. In the same way, GameStop only lets PowerUp Rewards Pro members buy certain restocks. Amazon could also make PS5s only work with its Prime membership. Costco and Sam’s Club, where you need a membership to shop, always require memberships for PS5 restocks.
