The next PS5 restock is coming from Walmart again today, this time at 4 p.m. Eastern. Like yesterday, Walmart will have both the disk and digital editions of the consoles in this PS5 restock. Walmart typically offers its consoles in 10-minute waves, so if you don’t see the buy button available right away, keep trying.
The one regular retailer we didn’t see a PS5 restock from last week was PlayStation Direct, so it’s likely we’ll see emails from Sony today or tomorrow for a restock later this week. If you aren’t already signed up to receive invites from PlayStation Direct, you should sign up now.
Walmart’s PS5 restock yesterday was a little chaotic, with the buy button constantly disappearing and bots buying up a lot of the stock to resell. than it has been in months. Most other retailers now offer a way for you to pay to shortcut the line by joining their membership programs. Here are the services we’ve seen so far:
- GameStop PowerUp Rewards: The first company to offer a way to cut the PS5 Restock line is also the cheapest. In addition to increased points to spend on discounts in the store, you can get access to a console at least one hour before normal GameStop shoppers. And for $15 a year, that’s not a bad deal.
You can check inventory on the $400 Digital Edition at Walmart by clicking the button below, or you can try to snag the pricier PS5 with Blu-ray for $500.
Best Buy is offering the PS5 with Blu-ray for $500 as well as the $400 Digital Edition (which you can find by clicking the button below). The retailer is also offering a slew of accessories on its PS5 landing page.
GameStop has pages for both the $400 Digital Edition (click the button below) as well as the pricier PS5 with Blu-ray for $500. You can also buy a full range of PS5 accessories from GameStop like the Pulse 3D wireless headset for $100.
Target offers the PS5 with Blu-ray for $500 in addition to the PS5 Digital Edition, which you can find by clicking the button below.
You can check out Amazon’s page for the $400 Digital Edition via the button below, or, if you’d rather, get in line for the PS5 with Blu-ray for $500.
See the detailed instructions above for more info on how to queue up for a PS5 availability at Sony’s PlayStation Direct.
Newegg’s PS5 page has multiple bundles that include additional controllers and games along with the console. You can see the different options by clicking on the button below.
If you’ve decided you simply can’t wait another moment for Sony to get its act together and flood the market with inventory, eBay is a shortcut to getting your own PS5 right now. That said, let me reiterate our advice: No PS5 is worth spending hundreds over list price, and that’s exactly what you’ll have to do if you buy from an eBay reseller. The average PS5 price on eBay is about $850.
OK, you’ve exhausted all of the online and brick-and-mortar retailers, and you’ve decided you’re willing to pay upward of a $300 markup to get this puppy soon. As your friends, we have to tell you: Don’t do it. But if you don’t want to listen to us, you might want to check out StockX, an eBay alternative that made its name in the secondary market for sneakers and designer clothing. Last time we checked, prices for the PS5 were hovering around $700.
