PS5 Restock Update for Walmart, Newegg, GameStop, Best Buy, Amazon, Target and More

After a couple of restocks this week, the PS5 is once again unavailable across the United States. However, there could be a few more drops on the horizon.

Here is a breakdown of the latest PS5 restock information.

Walmart PS5 Restock

Right on cue, Walmart restocked the PS5 and the Xbox Series X on Thursday at its usual time of 3 p.m. ET.

The retailer was offering the disc and digital editions of the Sony consoles, for their suggested retail prices of $499 and $399 respectively. The availability window lasted longer than usual, too, with the hardware remaining in stock for nearly an hour.

If you missed this drop, try again next week: the retailer rarely deviates from its Thursday 3 p.m. routine when it comes to PS5 restocks.

You should also consider following industry trackers such as @mattswider and @GYXdeals on Twitter, as they have exclusive sources and will sometimes break the news early.

Newegg PS5 Restock

A PS5 bundle was available via Newegg's shuffle system (basically a lottery draw) on Thursday, but that closed at 1 p.m. ET.

Newegg only distributes next-gen consoles through the shuffle. If you see a PS5 unit available for instant purchase on the website, it will be from a third-party reseller who is likely charging an enormous amount of money.

To be alerted when the next official PS5 Newegg shuffle opens, follow the likes of @mattswider and @GYXdeals.

GameStop PS5 Restock

On Tuesday, August 3, GameStop released new PS5 units in a series of bundles.

As with the last few drops, however, many customers were prohibited from even placing an order. To be eligible for the restock sale, shoppers must be registered members of GameStop's PowerUp Rewards Pro program.

This condition has applied to all of the retailer's recent drops, so it might be worth joining the scheme (which you can do for $14.99) if you ever hope to get a PS5 from GameStop.

Best Buy PS5 Restock

All PS5 bundles are sold out at Best Buy and there is no indication of when the next restock will hit the shelves. It is difficult to forecast, given that the pattern has been fluctuating wildly.

That said, Best Buy has been among the more prolific vendors and today marks two weeks since it was last selling the console. The merchant has been known to organize its restocks on a fortnightly basis, so it is due for another one soon.

Antonline PS5 Restock

Antonline was selling the PlayStation 5 on Thursday, in a bundle that included The Last of Us Part II, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, MLB The Show 21, and Spider-Man: Miles Morales. The entire package was offered for $750, but has since sold out.

There are multiple Xbox Series S bundles still available on the website, if you are happy to settle for Microsoft's less powerful console.

Amazon PS5 Restock

Amazon last offered PS5 units for sale during its Prime Day event nearly two months ago.

You will occasionally stumble across a second-hand unit on the site, however. Console trackers would advise you to resist the temptation to buy one of these, as they are invariably overpriced.

For example, at the time of writing, a PS5 is listed on the website for $993.99, which is almost double the manufacturer's recommended price.

Target PS5 Restock

Target was selling the PS5 a week ago. Industry analysts are not expecting the next restock for at least another week. So, try your luck at Target on Friday, August 13.

PS Direct PS5 Restock

Restocks at Sony's official storefront will often be confirmed ahead of time, as people receive email invitations to join a virtual queue.

There have been no reports of such PS Direct emails lately, which means the next restock is presumably still a way off.

Costco PS5 Restock

Costco rarely has the PS5 in stock nowadays, but if it ever does replenish its inventory then @mattswider and @GYXdeals will be the first to let you know.
