A chance to buy the PS5 gaming console at retail price is happening soon! More units are expected to come out from Target by next week. Here are the full details and restock schedule for retailers online
To be clear, PS5 gaming consoles are available nationwide. Shops like Amazon, Walmart and PlayStation Direct are selling PS5 units online. However, Amazon and Walmart both sell their unit above the manufacturer's recommended price. PlayStation 5 consoles are also often sold in a bundle set to reduce competition and prevent scalpers from making easy purchases.
PlayStation Direct, meanwhile, sells more than one PS5 gaming console during its restocks. However, the system uses a lottery system when choosing its purchasing customer. This strategy is advertised to give everyone an equal chance of purchasing the console. It takes a bit of luck when using the said method, but it guarantees automatic purchase if you get called.
TechRadar reported that Target is one of the few stores that sell PS5 at their retail price. The gaming console is sold at $399 (PS5 Digital) and $499 (PS5 Disc). Its latest restock sale happened on July 9, with its units selling out in a matter of hours. Fortunately, another sale is scheduled to happen.
Target is reportedly holding a few PS5 units in its inventory. Target has approximately 12 PS5 consoles per retailer store across the US. These units might go on sale in the next few days.
