We’re checking for PS5 inventory from not just Sony Direct, but also GameStop, Walmart, Target and Best Best, among others, and we’re hopeful more consoles will be available this week.
Today, Wednesday, was the first PS5 restock at Sony Direct. The site usually has new stock of both the Disc and Digital PS5 Tuesdays through Fridays, although Tuesday is sometimes skipped (as it was this week). There’s hope for tomorrow.
Here’s where else for can check for the PS5:
Remember, whenever the PS5 restock in the US happens, it’ll send you into a virtual queue and it’s choosing people at random to buy the much-sought-after video game console. You’re not guaranteed to get one.
Both the Disc and Digital PS5 versions were for sale at the MSRP of $499 and $399 respectively at the above links. Tax isn’t included, so it may cost a bit more.
As we always warn, getting into the Sony Direct queue doesn’t mean you’ll find the console in stock. Most people will see “more than an hour wait” from the estimated wait time. That’s what the message reads for us. For others, they’ll see a queue of just a few minutes.
Here are more rules, according to Sony:
- First, you will need an active PSN account in order to complete the purchase.
- Second, you will have 10 minutes to buy the PS5.
- Third, “PS5 Consoles are now available but are not guaranteed even if you are in the queue,” according to Sony.a
Trust us, it’s serious about buying the PS5 within ten minutes. Make sure you have all of your information ready to go to buy PS5.
