PS5 Best Buy, Walmart, GameStop hoping to restock soon

Want to get your hands on a PS5? We’ve been tracking all of the places selling both the standard edition and the digital edition of the PS5 for months, helping thousands of people snap up the console when it appears. If you’ve been having trouble finding one yourself, this article provides helpful tips for getting to checkout and how to track when the next PS5 batch will be available to buy.

Sony’s PlayStation Direct store held a PS5 console here-and-gone restock on Friday afternoon, but PS5 drops have tended to slow as we move into the weekend. The PS Direct restock came after Thursday’s PlayStation Showcase, where Sony treated us to updates for huge upcoming games such as God of War: Ragnarok, Spider-Man 2 and a brief teaser for new Wolverine game. No retailers restocked the PS5 on Thursday to take advantage of the event’s hype, but we did see another morning restock from Target on Friday.

There are three big reasons why you’re still struggling to get a PS5. The first is the most obvious: The system is really popular. Sony says the PS5 is its best-selling console and has already sold 10 million units since launch.

The second reason is the current chip shortage impacting most of the world’s electronics. Sony did say it has secured enough chips to meet its goal of 14.8 million consoles for the fiscal year.

As for the last reason, it comes down to bots. Resellers are using software to purchase a massive number of PS5s at once, leaving only a few for actual humans to buy. Retailers added various bot protections during PS5 restocks, but these restrictions only hamper resellers so much.
