The PS5 just sold out at GameStop, but our PS5 restock Twitter tracker is helping thousands of people find the new console. We’re due to find it back in stock this week again. There’s hope that there will soon be a Target PS5 restock, as the US store has been amassing inventory. Sony Direct and Best Buy are also possibilities. Here’s how you can find out when.
You can do two things today. Check the stores below and receive alerts from our PS5 restock Twitter tracker.

Target is the next store we expect to have a PS5 restock. Our tracker will tell you as soon as it happens. Three Target employees have contacted us to mention that they recently received shipments, suggesting that it could be as soon as Tuesday, March 9 or as late as Thursday, March 11, according to our sources.
We’ve had success: about 25% of our PS5 Twitter tracker replies show they got the new console from our alerts. It’s gotten easier over time as more people get the Sony system – there’s slightly less pressure today than there was two weeks ago.
Best Buy, Walmart and GameStop would have an PS5 and Xbox restock, and our DMs are open to see if Target is going to have new console stock this week. So far, people in the know are saying it’s coming soon. We’ll update this story as soon as we nail down a time.
It’s important to point out that you won’t be able to order from retail stores. We don’t want to be responsible for sending people to physical stores looking for a PS5 restock that doesn’t exist. Some stores allow for in-store pickup (Target and certain Best Buy stores), however, none of the actual ordering takes place in stores.
The PS5 restock pattern
We saw about every other major retailer release PS5 stock this week: Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, ANTonline, GameStop and Sam’s Club.
Sony PlayStation Direct has been unusually silent this week. We were told that Sony Direct’s last restock, on Wednesday, February 24, saw delays beyond the promised two-day shipping for PlayStation Plus members. That’s likely why Sony hasn’t released more stock of the console – it’s backed up.
Console restock success stories
Happy ending to this PS5 story. Happy to play a part.❤️ https://t.co/WhtMOS2putFebruary 25, 2021
Through Twitter, we’re tracking the next PS5 and Xbox stock from more than 13 sources, and we’ve seen a few PS5 consoles pop up over the last week and, even better news, high success rates for people who have been looking for restock for months.
Even if you don’t get to buy the console today, there may be a PS5 and Xbox drop any one of the days in the upcoming week.
