PS5 restock: Twitter tracker for Target, Best Buy, Walmart and GameStop dates


New PS5 restock dates are popping up, and now know when and where you’ll be able to get the console.
Sunday update: The next big PS5 restock is this week, scheduled for Tuesday, and if you follow our PS5 restock Twitter tracker Matt Swider – follow and turn on notifications for alerts. Why do you need PS5 restock alerts? It turns out that stores in the US like Target, Best Buy, Walmart, GameStop and Amazon (which is overdue) have the Sony console for sale for just minutes – if not seconds. Getting it for MSRP – that’s $399 for PS5 Digital or $499 for PS5 Disc – is next to impossible. But with TechRadar and Matt Swider tracking PlayStation 5 console inventory 24/7, you do actually have a chance. “So you’re saying there’s a chance?!” Matt has helped 93,400 people get a next-gen console through his Twitter tracker. This counts both PS5 and Xbox Series X restock totals. The next PS5 restock date is being sent to us by retail sources, and we should see a GameStop restock this week, according to multiple employees at the company. We’ve been in touch with dozens of people at the company in 2021. GameStop is pivoting between PS5 restock in-store events and online restocks, always offering PS5 Disc and PS5 Digital bundles with everything included at face value. We’ve also been seeing daily PS5 restock email invites go out for Sony Direct, while we can confirm that Walmart is holding back consoles, likely for Black Friday 2021. GameStop has had two in-store restocks over the last month – first in just three cities in the US and seven more cities. That total of 10 cities doesn’t cover all of America, so expect two things: more major cities to get the console in the coming days (hint!) and online restocks to continue (hint! hint!). Best Buy is also pivoting – but in this case, it’s sometimes requiring people to sign up for its $199 Totaltech package, while other times (like the most recent Best Buy PS5 restock) have been up for grabs by anyone. Target is likely to have the PS5 this week, while Amazon is overdue. This should be another exciting week as we head into Black Friday 2021. Learn from our GameStop PS5 restock live stream (and like and subscribe) in order to find tricks on how to check out from GameStop. You’ll have an easier time and we found out a secret method to getting the console from the website. It may work for you next time. Yes, PS5 will be in stock during Black Friday 2021. we’ve gotten word that more than one retail chain in the US are amassing PS5 consoles in warehouses, and we even have video evidence from Walmart having several palettes of PS5 consoles ready. When? It’s also going to be crucial to know when PS5 and other hard-to-find deals are in stock during Black Friday 2021, and we’re also offering a way to get email alerts during November. It’ll be full of links to what you want to buy. Stick to shopping for PS5 Disc and PS5 Digital at legitimate stores: GameStop, Best Buy, Target, Walmart and Amazon. Antonline and Newegg are the only two retailer stores that are reliable but do not have household names. You can trust them. If you haven’t heard of the retailer, it’s probably not safe to buy. Several “retailers” have popped up overnight to scam people out of money meant for a PS5 (that never arrives). And it’s good business: many people fall for these daily. In fact, we’ve helped get the word out that about PS5 Twitter scams. If it sounds too good to be true, it most certainly is – you won’t get a console the easy way. Here’s a prime example of what these crucial PS5 restock alerts look like: It’s been a while since we’ve seen a GameStop PS5 restock, however, that’s about to change in a big way, according to our PS5 restock Twitter tracker Matt Swider. We even have the GameStop PS5 restock store location list going ahead of the Friday PS5 drop. We also saw the console in stock on Tuesday, October 19 online with Far Cry 6 bundled with the Disc console and gift cards with the Digital Edition. GameStop PS5 restock in-store event: The Sony console will be in select GameStop stores throughout the US on Friday, October 22,2021. What time? When your local store normally opens, so it’ll vary and you should expect a line in front of the door. GameStop PS5 restock online date: Don’t think that GameStop will be limiting its PS5 restock events to just in stores. As we’ve reported previously, the game retailer will have the console online too, just like it did on Tuesday, according to our exclusive sources, and we already know GameStop often prefers Tuesday mornings. Sure enough, we’ve gotten word of PS5 console inventory on the move internally. GameStop PS5 restock advice: You can be turned off at GameStop for its forced bundles, but this has allowed it to become the most frequent source of PlayStation 5 console sales in the second half of 2021. You’ll end up paying $650 for a PS5 Digital console and $750 for PS5 Disc (in stores, last time it was priced at $705 for PS5 Disc). That seems like a lot, but resellers aren’t able to profit from the console nearly as easily when it includes games (which are readily available in stores). The new Sony Direct PS5 restock email invite today process involves registering for PSN ID with Sony, affirming you want to purchase a console. Sony’s store works differently than most retailers that have PS5 for sale. It randomly selects active PSN users via email to purchase the console in a lottery-like virtual queue. Sometimes it has enough consoles saved for a second virtual queue that’s opened to all registered PSN users. PS5 restock tutorials on YouTube are the best way to figure out how to checkout at each store in the US, and they’re all different. We went through the step-by-step instructions on how to buy a PS5 at GameStop with a YouTube live stream.
