GameStop tweet suggests possible PS5 restock soon

PS5 restocks have been virtually nonexistent this month, however Gamestop (opens in new tab) is suggested to be the next retailer offering hope for anyone still on the search for elusive product. The retailer recently tweeted (opens in new tab) a list of reasons to sign up for their Pro membership for exclusives, including access to console restocks. We typically see this behaviour shortly before a member-only PS5 restock, so we’d recommend signing up and keeping a close eye here over the course of the week. 

The tweet comes after PS5 restock tracker @Tracker_RY hinted at more console availability reserved for Pro members coming this week, so there’s plenty of swirl behind this particular rumor. GameStop traditionally restocks on Thursdays or Fridays in the early afternoon, so keep your notifications on during those times.

Things haven’t been complete desolate, though. Target (opens in new tab) managed to pull through for us last week – offering PS5 restocks in-store and online and being the only major retailer to get any stock on the shelves. Target restocked both the PS5 and Xbox Series X on February 10th. The online stock sold out almost immediately due to the restock being relatively small; however, there are suggestions that you can still pick one up in-store, definitely have a scope around any local stores within your area for a possible pick up.

Costco is another retailer that recently offered more PS5 restocks, which sold out almost immediately yesterday. With stock available both online and in-store shortly following Target’s own drop, it’s looking likely, then, that retailers do have those shipments in and ready to go. 

That means we’re looking even closer at Best Buy (opens in new tab) this week as well. Best Buy has been due a restock for some time, with the last console restock for them being in mid-January. Speculation suggests that they are gathering units of the PS5 for a possible drop this month. Be on the lookout for a surprise drop soon.

Similarly, Amazon (opens in new tab) has been quiet since December. They usually restock towards the end of the month, but in January we saw nothing. So here’s hoping for a larger PS5 restock next week for the end of February. Do note, though, that if any stock does come through next week, it may be reserved for Prime Subscriptions, so it’s with signing up if you’re trying to bag one from Amazon.

Lastly, Sony Direct (opens in new tab) still has their registration open as of February 16th for anyone hoping to get a surprise invitation for a PS5. Signing up does not guarantee a PS5, but it does give you a possible chance of being selected to purchase one. Be sure to sign up, as you never know you could receive an email sooner than expected.

Across the pond, UK gamers had great luck last week as Very (opens in new tab) had a huge restock of consoles. Game is still one to watch. There have been rumours surrounding them having a possible restock and even hosting Horizon Forbidden West bundle to coincide with the February 18th release date.
