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

PS5 restocks were not especially frequent last week, but we could be seeing more activity over the coming days to make up for that drought. In particular, Best Buy, GameStop and Walmart are all tipped to be getting new units soon.

Below is a breakdown of the latest PS5 restock information.

Target PS5 Restock

On Friday, July 9, you had the opportunity to buy a disc edition PS5 from individual Target stores.

To clarify, the retailer was not shipping the next-gen consoles nationwide. Instead, you had to search by region on their website to check if any nearby stores had supplies and, if they did, then you could physically go in and collect one.

While everywhere did sell out on Friday, consoles are still intermittently popping up in certain locations. Speaking of which, reputable tracker account @GYXdeals has tweeted that you can currently order the PS5's cheaper digital-only model in a few select stores.

As we pointed out last week, it is hard to discern how many units are available right now without surveying every individual location. As such, the best thing you can do is periodically revisit the Target website to see if your local stores have the PS5 in stock.

Best Buy PS5 Restock

Best Buy is a promising candidate for a PS5 restock this week, as it is approaching a fortnight since they were last selling the console. If they do replenish their inventory soon, it is expected to occur on Thursday. After all, this is when the outlet typically releases new units.

GameStop PS5 Restock

GameStop could also be selling new PS5s this Thursday, as that would mark two weeks since their last restock. For context, GameStop tends to replenish its inventory on a fortnightly basis.

Of course, this is not a hard and fast rule and dependable tracker Matt Swider has reported that new units could be arriving a little earlier on this occasion, potentially around Wednesday, July 14.

Either way, it will definitely be worth keeping an eye on GameStop's social media channels over the coming days.

Walmart PS5 Restock

You can order a PlayStation from Walmart at the time of writing, but it will be at a very steep price.

This is because the merchant allows independent users to trade on its website, giving console resellers a platform to charge as much as they want. For example, you can quite easily find a PS5 at Walmart if you do a little browsing, but it will set you back $955. For context, that is nearly double the recommended manufacture price of $499.

As such, it is probably advisable to wait for the next official Walmart drop so that you can get a fairer price. Industry analysts are forecasting that this might even happen on Thursday, July 15, meaning that you will not have to wait too long.

Newegg PS5 Restock

"Newegg Shuffles" opened for both the disc and digital editions of the PS5 on Friday, July 9, but these are now closed.

In case you are not aware, "shuffles" are basically Newegg's version of lottery draws, which the merchant uses to offload its more in-demand items. As such, you are not guaranteed a PS5 by simply entering one of these, because the system is governed by random chance (as opposed to a first-come-first-served approach).

To be alerted when the next Newegg shuffle is open, follow the likes of @Wario64 and @GYXdeals on Twitter.

PS Direct PS5 Restock

Sony's official storefront is long overdue for a PS5 restock, as their virtual queue has not reopened since Thursday, June 24, when it was only accessible to a handful of (pre-selected) customers anyway.

As such, there is a good chance that they will be getting more units in shortly.

Antonline PS5 Restock

Antonline was selling an $800 PS5 bundle last week, which included an extra controller and four games. Since then, they have not restocked with any additional units.

Amazon PS5 Restock

Amazon has not replenished its PS5 inventory since it sold out in June. Occasionally, you will stumble across a few resellers offering the next-gen hardware but, as with Walmart, these are always incredibly overpriced.

For timely updates on the next official Amazon restock, follow @Wario64 and @GYXdeals on Twitter.

Costco PS5 Restock

You are still unable to purchase either version of the PS5 from Costco.

If the situation changes in the near future, dedicated trackers like @Wario64 and @GYXdeals will broadcast an update to their followers.
