PS5 Restocks: Check Stock At Walmart, Best Buy, GameStop, And More

Though GameStop had PS5 bundles in stock today, it’s generally been a quieter week for console restocks compared to last week, when we saw the most widespread PS5 restock since Black Friday. Every major retailer, from Target and GameStop to Best Buy, Walmart, and even Amazon, had PS5 stock available to buy at some point. While there have been fewer opportunities to buy a PS5 or PS5 Digital this week, the recent restocks suggest more units could be on the way in the near future. For what it’s worth, Sony hasn’t shared an update on the PS5 stock situation for 2021.

In the meantime, we’re continuing to update this guide as PS5 units go on sale–just be aware that if you want one, you’ll have to be quick and potentially open to purchasing a bundle with games and accessories that you may or may not want. If you want to buy a PS5 relatively soon, those are the sort of concessions you need to make. With any luck, you’ll find a bundle that contains mostly relevant items. You’ll want to get your hands on one to play the best PS5 games coming in 2021.

Where to buy the PS5

The PS5 and PS5 Digital sell for $500 and $400, respectively.

PS5 availability at PlayStation Direct

PlayStation Direct regularly opens up a queue for shoppers to buy the PS5 (and anything else on the first-party site), but it’s often over an hour wait and unclear if the PS5 is even available. Still, it’s worth checking PS Direct often, as it’s the only store still releasing the PS5 on a somewhat regular basis. However, the queues appear to also be somewhat random.

Note that finding a queue on PS Direct doesn’t necessarily mean the PS5 is in stock; it simply indicates high traffic to the store. It never hurts to jump in and wait if you find the queue and you’ll be at your computer for a while, but know there’s no guarantee it’ll be in stock by the time you get through.

PS5 availability at GameStop

GameStop restocked the PS5 on January 27; however, the PS5 and PS5 Digital edition were only available in pricey bundles.

PS5 availability at Walmart

Walmart last had the PS5, along with other next-gen systems, on its website on January 21. For these restocks, it provided more systems every 10 minutes for about half an hour, providing customers with numerous chances to get one. This seemed to make it slightly easier to get one of the systems. However, you will still need to prepare to be there the second a restock happens to have the best chance.

PS5 availability at Best Buy

Best Buy’s last PS5 restock was on January 22–this marked the second day in a row that Best Buy restocked the PS5 on its website, but everything’s sold out now. Best Buy didn’t have any stock on store shelves throughout the entire holiday season, but the retailer has stated that consoles will be available in stores in 2021. We suggest checking with your local Best Buy store in case of availability.

PS5 availability at Target

Target had a PS5 restock on the morning of January 20, the first major one we’ve seen at the retailer since launch. Both the PS5 and PS5 Digital were available, but only for in-store pickup. We still suggest calling your local stores for availability.

PS5 availability at Amazon

Amazon has been the least reliable retailer when it comes to PS5 restocks–we’ve barely seen the next-gen console in stock there since launch. The most recent Amazon PS5 restock happened on January 21. We only saw the $500 disc drive version in stock, and it was gone in a flash.

Where to buy PS5 accessories

Some PS5 accessories are hard to find in stock, but there are great third-party options.
