Sony’s PlayStation 5 was first released on November 12, 2020. That’s 10 months ago, which seems like a lifetime. So much has happened since then, but the PS5 is definitely the more sought-after of the two next-gen consoles. People still rave about how much they love their PlayStation 5 consoles, and that won’t change anytime soon. There are so many fantastic PS5 games available as well, and some of them are even discounted from time to time. Of course, there’s just one small problem: the PlayStation 5 is still impossible to find in stores. That’s why we’re giving you this important PS5 restock update master list. And it’s one that you’re definitely going to want to keep checking.

This PS5 restock list is updated constantly, with stock notices from all major retailers including Amazon, Target, Best Buy, and more. We’ll show you everywhere to check to see where to buy the PS5.

PS5 restock update

PS5 stock is impossible to find in stores right now. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for the PlayStation 5 that works with physical discs or the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition console. In either case, you’re simply not going to find one at your local electrics retailer. And with Black Friday right around the corner, we don’t expect that to change anytime soon. There’s a good chance that some stores will manage to stockpile a few PS5 consoles ahead of the holidays. They’ll use them to lure people into their stores on Black Friday. Rest assured, however, that they’ll be long gone by the time you get there.

That’s why a PS5 stock update like this one is so important. PS5 consoles have been popping up online with increasing frequency lately. It’s still not easy to catch one in stock, however. That’s why we’re going to let you in on a little secret in this article. It’s not ideal, but it’s your best chance of scoring yourself a new PlayStation 5 video game console anytime soon. You could always overpay if you want one immediately, but let’s help you find one at MSRP.

Amazon PS5 restock on September 21st

Amazon as of September 21st had a bunch of stock of both versions of the PS5 with increasing frequency. We’re talking about the main PS5 and the digital-only version. The PlayStation 5 plays physical discs as well as digital copies of games that you can download. Meanwhile, the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition is a more affordable version of the PS5 that only plays digital games.

Here are Amazon’s main listings for these two PS5 versions which as of now are sold out.

Of note, Amazon issued an update on September 21st with a new message on its PS5 page. “Amazon Prime customers will have priority access to the PlayStation 5 until September 21, 2021,” the message reads. That indicates that moving forward, anyone can get PS5 consoles when they’re restocked. Previously, inventory was prioritized for Prime members.

If you visit either of those PS5 listings right now, however, you’ll immediately notice that they have one thing in common. That’s right, they’re both sold out. If you click the “See All Buying Options” on the PlayStation 5 listing, you’ll see that there are some used consoles in stock. Of course, it goes without saying that not everyone wants to buy a used video game console.

If you don’t mind a used PS5, then you should definitely go for it. If you do mind, however, we have an important PS5 restock update that you need to see.

Hidden PS5 listings on Amazon

In addition to the main PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition listings we mentioned above, Amazon also has several hidden PlayStation 5 listings. They don’t always appear when you search for Sony’s beloved video game console. But we know where to look to find these secret listings, and that’s why we’re giving you this PS5 restock update. Amazon sellers are able to create separate PS5 listings by selling the video game console bundled with another item. It’s something as simple as an HDMI cable or another accessory that doesn’t normally come with the PlayStation 5.

Now, it’s important to note that we have good news and bad news. The good news is that several of Amazon’s hidden PS5 listings are back in stock right now. If you hurry, you can actually buy one and get a brand new PS5 shipped to your door in just a few days! But the bad news is that you’ll have to pay extra above MSRP compared to just getting a console on its own.

Here are some listings that are currently in stock as of the time of this writing:

PS5 stock at other retailers

It should obviously go without saying that Amazon is not the only retailer that carries the PS5. It’s definitely the best place to find a PlayStation 5 console in stock at any time, though. That’s because of all these hidden PS5 listings we told you about. As we mentioned, however, you have to be willing to pay a bit extra for those consoles.

If you’re a hardcore gamer or you definitely need a PS5 to give someone as a gift, that’s your best shot. But if you’re willing to do some checking on a regular basis, there are other big retailers that restock the PlayStation 5 console all the time.

PlayStation 5 console at GameStop

GameStop is obviously one of the first retailers that come to mind when you think of video games. That’s right, it’s much more than just a meme stock. GameStop tends to get the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition Console and the PlayStation 5 Disc Edition Console in stock with some regularity. That means it’s the first place you should check for a PS5 restock update.

Here are the links you need to bookmark:

PS5 console at Target

Target is another good place to check. The problem is that unfortunately, it’s usually not easy to find the PlayStation 5 console in stock at Target. The PS5 goes fast when it returns to Target’s inventory, and here’s the link you need to keep your eye on:

PlayStation 5 console at Walmart

What, you thought Walmart was going to be left out of the fun? No way! Walmart is a premier destination for video game consoles and accessories. It should go without saying that Walmart is one of the best places to go for a PS5 restock update.

Like Amazon, Walmart is open to third-party sellers. That means there are pretty much always PlayStation 5 consoles in stock if you’re willing to pay a premium. As a matter of fact, the PS5 is in stock right now at Walmart!

If you want to see all the Walmart listings with the PlayStation 5 console in stock, this is the page to watch.

PS5 console at Best Buy

Best Buy has somehow managed to restock the Sony PlayStation 5 several times over the past few months. That means it should definitely be high on your list of retailers to check in with. Looking for a Best Buy PS5 restock update right now? Good news: We’ve got you covered:

PlayStation 5 console at B&H Photo

Last but certainly not least is New York-based retailer B&H Photo. It’s not the first place that comes to mind when you think of video game gear. But B&H has managed to restock the PS5 with impressive frequency lately, so you should definitely check it out.
