PS5 restock news: Best Buy and GameStop up next

PS5 restock news is going to become more relevant in the week ahead, according to restock expert Matt Swider. Short holiday weeks (and it was just that last week) tend to act as replenishment dates for major stores in the US. We saw the same exact thing happen during Memorial Day in the US a few weeks ago. The only movement we saw in this last week was the Target PS5 restock surprise.

Instead, we turn our PS5 restock date predictions to Best Buy GameStop, Walmart, likely in that order. We may also see Antonline restock with the PS5 console before anyone else (they tend to do it earlier in the week), always in bundle form, as they promise next-gen console stock date once a week.

GameStop has a restock every 10 to 15 days, and so far it’s been nine days as of today, July 10. Our best estimate on a GameStop PS5 restock date is July 14, exactly 13 days after the last online restock opportunity.

Best Buy PS5 restock date and time

Next Best Buy PS5 restock date: Likely this upcoming week during the day timeLast PS5 restock date: Tuesday, June 29 at 10:55am EDTHow to buy PS5 from Best Buy: Follow our PS5 restock tracker account

The Best Buy restock date and time is likely to happen this upcoming week during daytime hours, according to Matt Swider, and while the largest electronics retailer in the US favors Thursday and Friday drops, it has happened on a Monday and Tuesday when there’s enough inventory – it’s just extremely rare.

That’s why our PS5 restock Twitter tracker account has become so important. We’ve seen PS5 in stock at Best Buy anywhere from 9:38am to 6:05pm, spanning the entire day Monday through Friday. It’s worth tracking Best Buy because it always has a lot of local inventory and fast shipping to individual stores from its regional warehouses (it’s buy online and pick-up in stores 3-5 days later).

PS5 restock tip: you may see a Best Buy GPU in-stock alert from Matt Swider before the console orders go live – that’s how it worked during the last major Best Buy restock.

GameStop PS5 restock date

Next GameStop PS5 restock date: Likely this week, maybe Wednesday, July 14Last GameStop PS5 restock date: Thursday, July 1 at 11:30am EDTHow to buy PS5 from GameStop: Follow our PS5 restock tracker account

The next GameStop PS5 restock may be as soon as this week, with our sights set on Wednesday, July 14, according to the past patterns tracked by Matt Swider. Matt was able to coach 4,000 viewers during the a PS5 restock live stream on YouTube nearly two weeks ago, and he’ll do the same when GameStop announces its next restock. 

The GameStop PS5 restock date is every 10 to 15 days, according to our analysis. We last saw the retailer have bundles nine days ago, so Wednesday will be 13 days, and it often favors Wednesdays. We’ll update this news when we get official confirmation from GameStop.

Walmart PS5 restock date

Next Walmart PS5 restock date: likely Thursday, July 15 at 3pm EDTLast minor Walmart PS5 restock date: Thursday, July 1 at 3pm EDTLast major Walmart PS5 restock date: Thursday, June 17 at 3pm EDTHow to buy PS5 from Walmart: Follow our PS5 restock tracker account

The next likely Walmart PS5 restock date is July 15, as we haven’t seen major stock from the retailer since June 17. With more people having received their orders from the prior PS5 restock (yes, Walmart takes this long to ship to some customers), we’re likely going to finally see another round at 3pm this upcoming Thursday.  

The good news is that Matt Swider often gets advance notice if there’s going to be a Walmart PS5 restock, citing a press release that the retailer issues to TechRadar. The official word comes almost three hours in advance of the restock at 12pm EDT.

Sony Direct PS5 restock date and time

Last Sony Direct PS5 restock date for email invites: Wednesday, June 23Last major Sony Direct virtual queue: Wednesday, June 16 at 5pm EDTHow to buy PS5 from GameStop: Follow our PS5 restock tracker account

We’re also coming up to one month since the last PS5 restock from Sony Direct, and we’re now able to create a news story announcing the likely restock date. This is due to the fact that Sony Direct often sends out (random) email invites to PSN users who get into an earlier virtual queue – and often, but not always – it opens up a second queue when this finishes. 

There’s a 15- to 30-minute waiting room for Sony Direct before the virtual queue opens. So that means you don’t have to be first in line. And we know that the queue for everyone has been happening at 5pm EDT, and Wednesdays have been popular for Sony Direct. Look for our tweet if you track a queue opening up then.

Costco PS5 restock date

Costco doesn’t restock PS5 often – maybe once a month – and it’s limited to Costco members, which is actually a good thing if you’re a paid member. Even then, it sells out of its bundles just as quickly as Best Buy, GameStop and Walmart. This is due to the fact that its bundles are at face value for the games and accessories. You’ll have less than three minutes on most Costco PS5 restock dates to get the console.

Our PS5 restock alerts for Costco, like the one below, is a good reason to tracker the PlayStation 5 with us on Twitter. It can crop up at any moment.

Since we’re tracking PS5 24/7 at a dozen retailers in the US, we’re working overtime to help out the nearly 750,000 followers Matt Swider has, all trying to buy the PS5. It’s actually gotten easier to find PS5 in stock during the summer months (it’s still not what we’d consider easy), but we don’t expect that to last. By the end of September, every parent will want PS5 for the kid during Christmas, so we suggest trying to get it before Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
