Breaking news on PlayStation 5 restocks: a few retailers have the PS5 consoles available in their online stores. These retailers are Amazon and Newegg. There are also hints that Target and Walmart would have supplies by the end of the week.
After months of waiting, gamers now have multiple choices where to buy the next-generation PS5 gaming console. Weeks of competing against high market demands and low stock availability continue to escalate, but this current restock update should help boost customer chances of buying one.
Newsweek reported that Amazon restocked their PS5 supplies last Wednesday and Newegg had their resupplies earlier this week. However, the purchase rate remains high, so PS5 consoles would only be available while supplies last.
Here is an update on stock information from some of the major retailers in the US.
In Stock: Amazon released Sony's PS5 on Wednesday and still has some available consoles through various resellers. However, most of these resellers have placed a significant mark-up on the price of PS5 consoles compared to its retail price.
Out of Stock: Best Buy has not released any new consoles since March 26 and should be due for major restocks anytime soon. Keep an eye out on their online trackers for more information.
Out of Stock: Costco had stocks available earlier this month but unfortunately sold them all out. The retailer has not given any indication or updates when it will have resupplies on the PS5 console.
In Stock: Newegg sells their PS5 in two bundle variants. The first bundle comes with a PS5 Console, Wireless Controller, PSVR Headset, Camera, Move Motion Controller, Iron Man Game & Accessories. The second bundle has a PS5 Console, Wireless Controller, PSVR Headset, Camera, Move Motion Controller, Iron Man Game & Accessories.
Bundles are a lot pricier than their stand-alone counterpart. However, these will remain in-stock much longer. If you are planning to buy these games ahead of time, then settling for a bundle might be your best chance in buying the PS5 console.
Expecting Restocks: Target has no available stocks at the time of writing. However, TechRadar reported that new stocks might come in on Thursday. Visit this retailer constantly and spam the "Refresh" button during each visit and you might get lucky enough to catch the PS5 consoles the moment it turns green.
Expecting Restocks: The PS5 restocks are currently sold out from this retailer. However, Walmart is sharing the same restock news with Target. It is reported to have new stocks ready to go live in the online market anytime this week. Keep an eye out for this retailer because the competition remains high, and availability might only last for a few minutes.
