PS5 Restock Update for Gamestop, Walmart, Amazon, Target, Costco and More

There have not been too many PS5 restocks lately, on account of how busy last week was. Still, Thursdays are usually the best day for drops, so it helps to be prepared just in case.

Here is a breakdown of all the latest PS5 restock information.

GameStop PS5 Restock

As we reported in our last update, industry analysts are predicting that a GameStop restock is on the horizon.

While there is no confirmed date as of yet, reputable console tracker Matt Swider has suggested that it could be sometime this week.

In anticipation of this, you should consider registering for GameStop's "PowerUp Rewards Pro" membership. The outlet's last few sales have been reserved exclusively for these customers, so it may be necessary. You can sign up on GameStop's website for an annual cost of $14.99.

Walmart PS5 Restock

Walmart normally restocks its PS5 inventory every other Thursday. Seeing as the merchant coordinated two drops last week, it is doubtful that they have any more surprises in store.

That being said, Walmart has thrown a few curveballs in the past. If they do announce an unexpected restock today (September 2), it will probably be at 3 p.m. ET, as per usual.

Amazon PS5 Restock

Amazon was selling the PS5 recently, for the first time in months.

While this came as a relief to gamers, we could now be waiting quite some time for the next drop to occur. Matt Swider has previously noted that Amazon replenishes its inventory on a monthly basis, meaning that its next restock might not happen until the end of September.

As always, scalpers are trading second-hand PS5s on the website, but these are invariably overpriced, with some units exceeding costs of $1,000.

PS Direct PS5 Restock

The last time that Sony's official storefront was selling the PlayStation 5 was on Tuesday, August 24.

There is no word yet on when the virtual queue is expected to reopen, but PS Direct often sends out email notifications a few days beforehand, giving customers a heads up. This has not happened so far this week, so an imminent restock is unlikely.

Best Buy PS5 Restock

Best Buy has not restocked on the PS5 since Thursday, August 12.

Given that the outlet normally schedules its drops every fortnight, it is long overdue. As such, we recommend that you keep an eye on Best Buy's website over the coming days, particularly this afternoon (Thursday, September 2), as that would fit in with their established pattern.

Target PS5 Restock

Over the past couple of weeks, individual Target stores have been coordinating their own localized PS5 restocks.

It is currently unclear if Target is abandoning nationwide drops altogether, or if this is just a temporary arrangement. However, this is how they have been distributing the Xbox Series X for the last few months, so it could well be a permanent change.

If that is the case, then you should get into the habit of checking the Target website every morning. By searching via ZIP code, you will be able to see if any stores nearby to you have updated their PS5 inventory.

Antonline PS5 Restock

Shortly after we published our previous update, Antonline released a new PS5 bundle.

For a brief period, you were able to buy Sony's next-gen console from the merchant, packaged with a compatible media remote, a DualSense charging station, a wireless headset and a 12-month subscription to PlayStation Plus. Yet, according to many would-be shoppers on Twitter, this item was sold out within the space of minutes.

While you can no longer get a PS5 from Antonline, you are able to order an Xbox Series S instead. More information about this can be found in our latest restock update for Microsoft's rival hardware.

Newegg PS5 Restock

A PS5 bundle was featured in a Newegg Shuffle on Tuesday, August 31.

Unfortunately, the console will not be included in today's lottery draw, but there are a few PC components up for grabs if you are in the market for those.

Costco PS5 Restock

Once again, the PS5 is not available at Costco. It has been a very long time since the retailer had either the PlayStation or Xbox in stock and we are not sure when the situation will improve.

In the unlikely event that Costco does replenish its inventory soon, dedicated console trackers like @mattswider and @GYXdeals will update their followers.

Sam's Club Restock

Both the disc and digital editions of the PS5 are out of stock at Sam's Club. To be alerted when this changes, follow the likes of @mattswider and @GYXdeals on Twitter.
