Next PS5 restock is Friday: Stores to FINALLY score a PlayStation 5!

Hey, PlayStation fans!

Excited that the PS5 is making a comeback? Of course, you are!

But how can you be among the first to know when a restock is announced?

Stick to the end to know the answers.

You can thank the electronics industry’s lack of wafers during the pandemic and increased demand for PS5 and other consoles for that. Restocks on PS5 and Xbox are spaced out a bit, but March looks like a good month for those.

Hopefully, restocks are coming soon. PS5 restocks and Xbox Series X restocks seem to be much more commonplace, or they will be in March at least. GameStop will restock its PS5 inventory online and in stores on March 11. Meanwhile, Best Buy has already had Xbox Series X restocks, but those no longer seem to be available.


Meanwhile, both Walmart and Amazon have had recent PS5 restocks and now have no inventory available. But some rumors point to imminent PS5 restocks at Best Buy and Target stores as well as a new PS5 drop due on Amazon by March 31. In short, it’s possible that Amazon may not give advance notice on that PS5 drop, so you’ll want to check stock there frequently.

As we approach the PlayStation 5 launch, it’s becoming more common for retailers to use premium subscription services like Amazon Prime and Totaltech as a way to offer faster access to a limited number of consoles. For example, during February’s restock, Best Buy offered higher priority to its Best Buy Totaltech members. Similarly, Walmart gave paid Walmart+ members priority access to its latest PS5 drop. If you want the best chance of securing a PlayStation 5 console this month, try one of these services.

Where Can I get a PlayStation 5?

You may still be able to snag a PS5 at Best Buy, Walmart, or GameStop, even if you’re not ready to drop serious cash on a PlayStation Membership or third-party reseller’s offering. Your luck depends on checking retail sites frequently for the latest restock news.

If you’re into social media, editor-in-chief Matt Swider has turned his Twitter profile into a kind of PS5 restock tracker: He live-blogs the GameStop in-store restocks he attends. Target, Best Buy, Walmart, and Gamestop routinely restock the console, but those stockings often sell out in seconds. Keep reading for details on when Sony’s coveted PS5 console will hit shelves again, and how you can be among the first to know.

On, you can sign up for an opportunity to purchase a PS5 directly from the manufacturer. Once the PS5 becomes available, PlayStation will notify shoppers on its waiting list by emailing them with private links to order the product. The company does not currently provide a timeline for when it plans to begin selling the new system.
