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

PS5 restocks occurred at Antonline and Best Buy this week. If you missed both of those, then there are still a few opportunities on the horizon, as GameStop, Walmart and PS Direct should all be releasing more units over the next 24 hours.

Below is a breakdown of the latest PS5 restock information.

GameStop PS5 Restock

At the time of writing, GameStop has just released new PS5 units, with priority access being given to their "PowerPro Rewards" members.

The timing of this makes sense, given that the merchant's last restock was exactly two weeks ago and they tend to replenish their inventory on a fortnightly basis.

While "PowerPro Rewards" members will take precedence over other customers, it is expected that the virtual queue will eventually open for everybody else, so you could be in with a chance if you are quick enough.

Walmart PS5 Restock

Walmart is another potential candidate for a restock today, with industry analysts forecasting that it will be selling Sony's next-generation console at 3 p.m. ET.

You can technically find a PS5 on their website already. However, the units listed this morning are being traded by third-party resellers, who will charge you a vastly inflated price.

For example, there are multiple PS5s on the Walmart website right now that are going for upwards of $900, which is far more than the $499 recommended manufacturer's price.

To get a better deal, it's sensible to just wait until the official restock, which will hopefully occur at 3 p.m. today.

PS Direct PS5 Restock

One merchant that we can confirm is definitely restocking this week in PS Direct.

Sony's official storefront has already sent out email notifications to a handful of randomly selected customers, inviting them to purchase a PS5 tomorrow (Friday, 16 July) at 3 p.m. ET. Following a period of exclusivity for these chosen shoppers, the virtual queue should then open for the rest of the public about 2 hours later, although it is worth pointing out that this isn't always guaranteed to happen.

Assuming that the virtual queue does actually open for everyone this time, it will likely be at 5 p.m. ET.

Best Buy PS5 Restock

As we predicted in our previous update, Best Buy did restock on PS5s this week when it released new units on Wednesday, July 14.

This latest batch went up a little before 3 p.m. ET and included both the disc and digital editions of the hardware. The former units were priced at the standard $499, while the latter could be picked up for $399.

Both versions have since sold out, meaning that you can no longer order a PS5 from Best Buy. There is usually at least a fortnight between their restocks, so you should expect the next one around July 28.

Antonline PS5 Restock

Antonline also restocked on PS5s yesterday, offering an $829 bundle that shipped with a variety of accessories and games.

The package included an extra controller, a HD camera, a 12-month PS Plus membership, and copies of both Demon's Souls and Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Antonline reportedly sold out of these bundles within the space of 2 minutes, so you had to be very quick on the draw.

To make sure that you get early notice for the next Antonline restock and can beat the crowds, follow dedicated console trackers like @Wario64 and @GYXdeals on Twitter.

Amazon PS5 Restock

PS5s are available from independent resellers on the Amazon marketplace but, as with Walmart, these are incredibly expensive and can reach costs of up to $949.

If you disregard these overpriced units (which you probably should) then you will be unable to add a PS5 to your Amazon basket, as the outlet hasn't replenished its official inventory since June.

Newegg PS5 Restock

To purchase any popular electronic from Newegg (whether it is a next-gen console or a computer part), you will need to enter what is known as a "Shuffle" draw.

These are basically lotteries that the outlet uses for distributing its more in-demand products. If you are lucky enough to be selected in one of these raffles, then you will be given the chance to purchase your desired item.

The last time that a PlayStation 5 was included in a "Newegg Shuffles" was Friday, July 9.

To be alerted when the next lottery draw opens, follow @Wario64 and @GYXdeals on Twitter.

Target PS5 Restock

Target was selling PS5s on Friday, July 9. Given how recent that was, it's unlikely that they will have any more units for at least another week.

Costco PS5 Restock

You are currently unable to purchase any version of the PS5 from Costco and console trackers are unsure when this might change.
