PS5 Restock Updates for GameStop, Walmart, Best Buy and More

The PS5 was restocked at numerous retailers yesterday, including GameStop, Walmart, Best Buy, and Amazon. Thursday was a big day for PlayStation fans, who have struggled to get their hands on the next-gen Sony console since it was released in November 2020.

Since its launch day, the PS5 has been occasionally restocked, but quantities have always been limited, while demand remains high. Yesterday was one of the few days since November where gamers have had multiple chances throughout the day to try and finally purchase the PlayStation 5.

While some retailers announced their PS5 restocks beforehand, giving PlayStation fans a heads up, others quietly released more consoles online with no warning. Gamers are generally made aware of new restocks and drops as they happen by dedicated PS5 restock accounts on Twitter, plus via prominent gaming accounts like @Wario64.
