Walmart announces PS5 restock for tomorrow – heres how to get your new-gen console

Walmart Plus

Walmart Plus (opens in new tab) is the only way to get access to tomorrow’s PS5 restock. This makes it worthy of a spin for those still chasing PS5 stock this year. At $13 a month, it’s not bad value, given its other benefits, but it’ll surely have paid for itself if it bags you the console. You can also go for the 15-day free trial (opens in new tab) to test it out first but remember: trial users won’t be able to gain early access to this PS5 restock.

After a long February, with very few PS5 restocks, Walmart (opens in new tab) has come in clutch at the end of the month. If you’re still searching for a PS5, you’re in luck as Walmart has confirmed that they will have stock available tomorrow, 24th February. This will be the first restock on PS5s from Walmart since mid-January. 

However, this drop will be for paid Walmart Plus (opens in new tab) Subscribers only. Something we’ve suspected after their last fall was in a similar fashion. The PS5 restock will be available on 24th February at 12pm ET, giving you plenty of time to prep. If you’re desperate for a PS5, you can still sign up for the paid subscription service; the free trial will be no good on this occasion. 

Elsewhere, Gamestop (opens in new tab) has also had a huge new-gen restock, but unfortunately, it’s not on PS5s. However, they have been consistent with restocks on Xbox Series X, and a restock on PS5s is still pending so here hoping that we see a PS5 restock soon. Best Buy (opens in new tab) is still due to have a nationwide restock; not only are they sold out on consoles, but many of the accessories too, suggesting that restock on a PS5 and accessories is on its way. Best Buy’s last restock was in January, and it’s been well over a month since we saw a PS5 readily available from them. Lastly, all eyes are still on Amazon (opens in new tab) for a possible restock towards the end of this week. After no restock in January and the last restock date in December 2021, we are all eager to see if Amazon delivers on a PS5 restock. 

For UK gamers, we’ve seen back-to-back restocks from Amazon (opens in new tab), PlayStation Direct, and Very (opens in new tab), with more stores possibly restocking soon too. 

The two things you need are that Walmart Plus membership and some good luck, but we’ve also included some more useful links and tips below to help you finally snag one of the new-gen consoles.

Previous PS5 restock dates

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.

PS5 ($499.99) | Check at Amazon (opens in new tab)
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.
