PS5 Restock Update for Walmart, Amazon, GameStop, Best Buy, Target, PS Direct and More

PlayStation 5 restocks have been particularly infrequent over the past week and, to be blunt, the situation is unlikely to improve much between now and the end of October.

This is because most retailers will be stockpiling their supplies in anticipation of Christmas, which means that they will not be coordinating many drops during the Fall season.

Still, it cannot hurt to be prepared and surprises do occur from time to time. With that said, here is the latest restock update for every major U.S. outlet.

GameStop PS5 Restock

All PS5 bundles are sold out at GameStop and there is no word on when the chain will next be replenishing its inventory.

On the bright side, it has been confirmed that GameStop is selling the Xbox Series X today, in a bundle with the newly-released Far Cry 6. If you decide to pick this up, you will also get a 3-month Xbox Game Pass membership, a gift card, and a spare controller.

It is worth noting that you will need to be signed up for GameStop's "Power Up Rewards Pro" loyalty scheme to be eligible for this purchase. You can register on the outlet's website for an annual cost of $14.99.

Amazon PS5 Restock

At the time of writing, you are unable to add either the disc or digital edition of the PS5 to your Amazon basket.

From time to time you might stumble across a few second-hand units on the marketplace, but these will be sold by third-party scalpers and, as such, will be going for an inflated price.

Walmart PS5 Restock

On a related note, a few independent traders are selling PS5s at Walmart right now.

The costs for these standalone units range from $899 to $955, so they are very expensive. For context, the recommended manufacturer's price for a brand new PS5 is $499.

If you disregard these second-hand consoles, then there have been no PS5s at Walmart since September 24 (when the last official restock took place).

Walmart typically coordinates its drops every other Thursday at 3 p.m. ET, so there is a chance that there could be one later today. While this is far from guaranteed, we would still advise that you keep an eye on the retailer's website this afternoon, just in case.

Best Buy PS5 Restock

Shortly after we published our last update, Best Buy updated its website with new PS5 units.

The merchant had previously coordinated a restock event at certain flagship locations across the country (primarily in major cities like New York and Atlanta) but this was in-store only.

To compensate for this, there was then a nationwide restock on Friday, October 1, which give everybody else (regardless of region) an opportunity to place an order for a PS5.

Newegg PS5 Restock

There was an unexpected streak of PS5s appearing in consecutive Newegg shuffles last week. However, that came to end on October 1 and the console has not been featured in any lottery draws since.

As always, you can try browsing the Newegg website to see if there are any second-hand units for sale, but these will invariably be overpriced. For instance, there is currently a bundle listed on the website (consisting of just the PS5 itself and a spare controller) going for over $1,000.

Target PS5 Restock

There are no PS5 units available at Target right now. To be alerted if the situation changes, follow reliable console trackers like @mattswider and @GYXdeals on Twitter and turn on notifications.

PS Direct PS5 Restock

As we reported in our previous update, PS Direct opened its virtual queue on Tuesday, September 28. During this time, shoppers were able to place an order for either the disc or digital edition of the PlayStation 5.

Unfortunately, these supplies have been exhausted and there has been no subsequent restock.

Sam's Club Restock

Sam's Club is not selling PS5s right now, but an Xbox Series S is listed on the website.

If you are willing to settle for Microsoft's less-powerful hardware, you can get it in a bundle with various controller accessories and a Tritton wired headset. Overall, this package will set you back $349.98.

Antonline PS5 Restock

Likewise, the Series S is also up for grabs at Antonline. More details about the various bundles on offer can be found in our last Xbox restock update.

The PS5 is not available from Antonline in any capacity.

Costco PS5 Restock

The PS5 is still unavailable at Costco and has been for a number of months. In the unlikely event that the merchant does release new units over the coming days, console trackers like @mattswider and @GYXdeals will broadcast a timely update to Twitter followers.
