PS5 restocks occurred at multiple retailers on Thursday and they all sold out within minutes.
As such, there is a bit of a drought again in terms of the next-generation console’s availability. However, Target should be getting new supplies next week.
Below is a breakdown of the latest PS5 restock information.
GameStop PS5 Restock
In our previous restock update, we forecast that GameStop would be releasing new PS5 units this week and that it would happen sometime in the late morning.
This prediction turned out to be correct, as the retailer was selling the next-gen console on July 1 at 11 a.m. ET. The PS5 was available in a bundle with Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart and Spider-Man: Miles Morales, but this has now sold out.
GameStop typically replenishes its inventory on a fortnightly basis, so the next PS5 restock should occur around Thursday, July 15.

Walmart PS5 Restock
Our last update also predicted that Walmart would be restocking on July 1. This, again, turned out to the accurate. Unfortunately, the availability window for this was incredibly small, with some customers reporting that the console was sold out mere seconds after it was released.
You can technically still buy a PS5 from Walmart, but these are being traded by independent users (rather than the outlet itself) who are reselling them for an inflated cost of $1,016.86. For context, the recommended manufacturer price for a PS5 is far cheaper at $499.

Target PS5 Restock
Of the three merchants that were overdue for a PS5 restock this week, the other two being GameStop and Walmart, Target is the only one not to have released any new units.
By default, this makes them the most likely candidate for a restock next week. It has been over a fortnight since the retailer last had PS5s in their inventory, so they should be getting extra supplies soon.
Target restocks usually take place on a Wednesday or Thursday, at around 7 a.m. ET, so keep an eye out then.

Sam’s Club PS5 Restock
Sam’s Club was selling the PlayStation 5 yesterday at 1 a.m. ET. Despite it being so early in the morning, their webpage still crashed due to the sheer amount of traffic as people tried to add the console to their basket.
The PS5 was packaged with 2 controllers, a copy of Spider-Man: Miles Morales and a 1-month subscription to PlayStation Now, in a bundle that cost $639.99. Again, this has now sold out.
If there is another unexpected drop at Sam’s Club, dedicated trackers like @Wario64 or @GYXdeals will be the first to let you know.

Newegg PS5 Restock
Whenever PS5 units are available at Newegg, you will need to enter a random lottery draw, known as a “Shuffle,” to be in with a chance of purchasing one. The merchant uses this same system to offload all of its most in-demand products, including gaming PC components.
The last time that a PS5 shuffle was drawn at Newegg was several weeks ago, so there is a chance that a new one could be taking place in the near future.
To be alerted as soon as a Newegg draw opens, follow the likes of @Wario64 and @GYXdeals on Twitter.

Best Buy PS5 Restock
Best Buy was selling PS5 units last week and they also released some more stock on Tuesday. Given how recent both these drops were, it is reasonable to assume that Best Buy’s inventory is now fully depleted.

PS Direct PS5 Restock
Sony’s official storefront, PS Direct, was selling PS5s last week to pre-selected customers only. Since then, there has been no word on when they will next be releasing more stock to the rest of the public.

Amazon PS5 Restock
For its Prime Day event last week, Amazon was selling both the PS5 and the Xbox Series X. At the time of writing, you can no longer purchase either console from the online marketplace.

Costco PS5 Restock
You cannot buy either the disc or digital edition of the PS5 from Costco right now.
If the situation changes, dedicated trackers like @Wario64 or @GYXdeals will update their followers.
