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

PS5 restocks have been few and far between lately, but one merchant is offering a glimmer of hope today.

Below is a breakdown of the latest PS5 restock information.

GameStop PS5 Restock

As we forecast in our previous update, GameStop did sell the PS5 this week, although it released those units a little earlier than we expected.

The restock occurred at 11 a.m. ET on Tuesday, July 27, and included both the disc and digital edition of the console.

The former units were packaged with next-gen exclusives like Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart and Sackboy: A Big Adventure. Meanwhile, the digital edition (which can't ship with physical media for obvious reasons) came with a PS Plus bundle and a $20 GameStop gift card.

Interestingly, these items were only available to the outlet's "PowerUp Pro" members, meaning that regular customers were unable to place an order. This is becoming a trend with GameStop, as the last few restocks have all had the exact same restriction applied to them.

If this is going to be its standard distribution model from now on, then it might be worth getting one of those "PowerPro" memberships. You can sign up on the GameStop website for $14.99 a year.

Target PS5 Restock

According to reliable console tracker Matt Swider (whose sources rarely steer him wrongly), Target could potentially be restocking later today.

This would make sense, given that the outlet hasn't replenished its PS5 inventory in over a fortnight. Yet it is worth noting that Target usually announces its drops before 9 a.m. ET and it hasn't done so yet.

Nevertheless, it is still worth keeping an eye on its social media presence throughout the day, just to be on the safe side.

Walmart PS5 Restock

Walmart restocked on PlayStation 5 units last week (Thursday, July 22) and, as always, they sold out within minutes.

Despite this, you can technically still find a PS5 on Walmart's website. However, these units are consistently overpriced, given that they are being traded by third-party resellers. For instance, there is currently a console listed on the website for an exorbitant $969, and that is without any peripherals or games included.

With all that said, while you can buy a PS5 from Walmart right now, you will get a much fairer deal if you decide to wait for the next proper restock.

PS Direct PS5 Restock

Sony's official storefront was restocked on PlayStation 5s last Tuesday (July 20).

There is currently no word on when PS Direct will next be selling the hardware, but we tend to find out about its restocks a little earlier. This is because it often sends out email invitations to randomly-selected customers a few days before the virtual queue opens.

So far, no one has reported getting one of these notifications from PS Direct, meaning that the next restock is probably still some way off.

Amazon PS5 Restock

You were able to add a PS5 to your Amazon basket on July 21, for its recommended manufacturer's price of $499.

While this inventory has now been depleted, you can find a few units on the website that are being sold by independent scalpers (like at Walmart). Of course, these are considerably more expensive than the ones that were being traded by the marketplace itself last Thursday.

Best Buy PS5 Restock

Best Buy only just replenished its PS5 inventory last Friday.

Given how recent that drop was, it's unlikely that there will be another one for some time. However, Best Buy has been quite unpredictable lately (with wildly fluctuating restock patterns), so don't rule it out entirely.

To keep abreast of any unanticipated developments, follow dedicated console trackers like @Wario64 and @GYXdeals on Twitter.

Antonline PS5 Restock

Antonline has sold out of PS5s, but you can get an Xbox Series S if you are in the market for one of those.

To be alerted the next time Sony's console is available from Antonline, follow @Wario64 and @GYXdeals on Twitter.

Newegg PS5 Restock

The most recent PS5 Shuffle at Newegg closed on Wednesday, July 21. Since then, there have been no further lottery draws containing the next-gen hardware.
