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

PS5 restocks have already taken place this week at numerous outlets, including PS Direct, Newegg and Amazon.

With the exception of Best Buy, no other retailers are expected to be selling Sony's elusive console over the next few days.

Below is a breakdown of the latest PS5 restock information.

Best Buy PS5 Restock

For the past week industry analysts have been predicting an imminent restock of PS5 units at Best Buy.

The theory arose when a mysterious Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart bundle was added to the retailer's online store and was immediately displaying as "sold out." This item has now been listed on the Best Buy website for a number of days, despite the fact that it was never available to purchase in the first place.

Internet sleuths have concluded that this product page must have been added as a temporary placeholder, in anticipation of new stock being released later in the week. This hasn't happened yet, but console trackers are expecting that to change any day now.

On that note, if the Ratchet & Clank bundle does become available at Best Buy, the likes of @Wario64 or @GYXdeals will send out immediate alerts.

PS Direct PS5 Restock

Sony's official storefront, PS Direct, restocked on PS5s yesterday, but these units were only available to a handful of pre-selected customers.

This was expected after several reliable console trackers disclosed that they had received email invitations to join a PS Direct virtual queue. These notifications were only sent to a few random PSN users, who were told that they could place an order for a PS5 from 3 p.m. ET on Wednesday.

On this particular occasion, the virtual queue didn't open to anybody else.

Amazon PS5 Restock

During the last few hours of "Prime Day,", next-generation consoles were briefly available from the Amazon marketplace.

Many gamers had been eagerly awaiting the PS5's inclusion in Amazon's latest flash sale, but these supplies were rapidly depleted. The restock occurred at 12 a.m. ET on Wednesday and within minutes all bundles featuring Sony's console were sold out.

While there is currently no indication of when Amazon will release more PS5s, their restock announcements tend to occur at either 12 p.m ET or 3 a.m. ET. As such, it is probably worth keeping your eye on their social media channels around then.

Newegg PS5 Restock

Newegg offers its most in-demand items, like PS5s or Xbox consoles, in randomized lotteries known as "shuffles."

Twitter accounts like @Wario64 or @GYXdeals will let you know when Newegg is about to start another shuffle.

Antonline PS5 Restock

Antonline was selling PS5 bundles on Monday 14 June, but since then it has not replenished its inventory. At the time of writing, there is no indication of when the situation might change.

Target PS5 Restock

Target hasn't restocked on PS5s since June 16 and there is currently no word on when they are expected to get new supplies. Following the likes of @Wario64 or @GYXdeals will help you keep abreast of any developments.

Walmart PS5 Restock

Walmart released both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X units last Thursday and they were both sold out within minutes. As such, it is unlikely that new supplies will be added any time soon.

Walmart does have a good track record of letting customers know about restocks ahead of time, so it is worth following the retailer's social media channels for early notice.

GameStop PS5 Restock

GameStop has actually released Xbox Series X consoles in-store and online over the past few days, but they have yet to restock on Sony's next-generation console. At the time of writing, trackers are unsure of when this is likely to happen.

Costco PS5 Restock

Costco has had neither the disc nor the digital edition of the PS5 for quite some time. If they do get any new units in, dedicated tracker accounts like @Wario64 or @GYXdeals will be the first to let you know.
