Target and Best Buy tipped for PS5 restock this week

For those still searching for a PS5 restock, there might be some hope for you this February. With huge PS5 exclusive titles set to be released soon, everyone is hunting for a new console. There has been a lot of discussion on possible restocks at large retailers, but your next stop should be Target (opens in new tab) or Best Buy (opens in new tab).

Both retailers have been rumored to be collecting stock of both the Digital and Disk versions of the consoles. This information comes from @Tracker_RY who has been very reliable for PS5 restocks speculation. Target has been holding console stock for a while now, and usually unleashes its collection on Thursday mornings – so we’d recommend keeping a close eye here early tomorrow.

Best Buy, meanwhile, is coming up to its bi-weekly scheduled PS5 restock time. We haven’t seen any stock here for a while now, but considering Target has been receiving fresh supplies, it’s reasonable to assume other retailers have as well. If Best Buy sticks to its previous timeline, we will likely be seeing more PS5 stock hitting the shelves on Thursday.

Gamestop (opens in new tab) has been rather regular on their PS5 restock, however since last week there hasn’t been any word on an possible restock. Rumors are swirling that this retailer has some stock in the pipeline, which might be available soon, and with their recent lowering of prices for their next gen bundles, Gamespot might be a retailer worth keeping tabs on.

Amazon (opens in new tab) is yet to have a PS5 restock in 2022. Stock usually drops at the end of the month here, though, so keep your eyes peeled for possible restocks around the 24th/25th February. It’s worth noting that the last restock was only available to Prime members, and there are suggestions that the next drop might be the same.

Sony (opens in new tab) direct are still taking registrations for the invite-only PS5 restocks. We highly recommend signing up. Registering does not guarantee a console, but it does at least put you in the running for a possible chance. Registration is still open as of today, 9th February, but we’re unsure when sign-ups will end.

UK retailers have been great on the restock side. Very just had a restock of consoles that quickly sold out yesterday. This might be a sign that more is possible on the way. Game has not officially announced a restock; however, it has been rumored that stock could drop as early as today. Bundles on their website still suggest a restock date of the 18th of February.

Which PS5 should you buy?

The PS5 launch gave gamers the choice of two consoles, Digital version and Disk Version. Both console perform exactly the same. The specs on both the digital and disk version are AMD Zen 2-based CPU, the same 16GB GDDR6 / 256-bit memory, and the same 825GB SSD.

Those of you who love collecting hard copies of games should go for the disk version. The disk version supports PS4 game disks, making it easier to play previous gen titles without having to buy them all over again.
