No should they - the weekend restocking news is veryVery rare in 2021.

PS5 and Xbox restocking news for June 5th
Everyone is obviously can't wait to see the PS5 and Xbox Series X in stock, and considering it's Father's Day in the US on June 20, the focus is more on getting a whole new console. Of course, the hype doesn't always generate real replenishment news.
The excitement spread through the Twitter responses from PS5 Twitter tracker Matt Swider, who has heard several followers claim that there will be a big restocking atWalmart and Best Buy this weekend. But the facts do not confirm it. There are also people calling for a Sony Direct PS5 restocking and virtual queue for Sunday, June 6. Still, Sony never restocked its console over the weekend in 2021.
These rumors are not unexpected. Last week was a short week, and we saw a year and a half of restocking for the PS5 events - and just one Xbox Series X restocking. Best Buy had both consoles, while Walmart threw in maybe a dozen. of PS5 consoles on Thursday night at 3:10 am. Very few people were happy with either replenishment. Technically, we saw a Newegg Shuffle on Friday, but it was a lottery for a lot.
Here's what we expect for the new week.
Walmart restock date
The Walmart PS5 restock date could be June 10 at 2:30 p.m. EDT or 3 p.m. EDT, and at this point the largest retailer in the United States will not have had the consoles for three weeks. Well, there hasn't been a restocking last week in a major way, at least. Walmart did a stealthy replenishment of the PS5 digital console on Thursday at 3:10 a.m. (don't worry if you missed it - hardly anyone got it).
Walmart usually restocks the PS5 and Xbox Series X on Thursdays in 2021, although it hasit's not the PS5 and the Xbox all Thursday. The good news is that Matt Swider often receives advance notice of Walmart PS5 and Xbox restocking news, often with a date and time if it is a massive console drop.
Best Buy restock date
The last reappThe re-supply of Best Buy PS5 and Xbox Series X took place on Thursday, June 3, as TechRadar previously accurately reported. The electronics retailer also sold GPU RTX 3080 Ti en no one in stores on the same date, but this Best Buy PS5 and Xbox restock today was online only and occurred in two short waves starting at 9:37 a.m. EDT. According to our information, many followers from our Twitter replenishment tracker figured this out.
It has become more difficult to determine when Best Buy will replenish news simply because it didn't consistently release orders on Fridays at noon (during seven consecutive weeks), when orders are opened on Thursday afternoon (for two weeks conon Monday morning replenishment (we believe this was intended for the second half of the previous week, but Best Buy did not have any shipments yet). Now we're back to Thursdays (twice in a row).
All the more reason to pay attention to our PS5 and Xbox Twitter follow-up for Best Buy alerts like this:
GameStop restock date
The GameStop PS5 and Xbox Series X restock took place three Wednesdays immediately - until this week. It's a short week and the video game retailer is probably catching up on its inventory (we were surprised it was 3 for 3 on Wednesday without fail before). We know it's almost always 2 p.m. EDT (online only, not in stores). The good news is that, like Walmart, GameStop usually sends us the news in advance.
GameStop has bundles, and recently the US retailer has been content to pack MLB. The Show for PS5 and Xbox, and Returnal for PS5. While many followers of Matt Swider complain that they are forced to buy games, accessories (like an extra controller) and a gift card, which puts the price of the PS5 on average at $ 729. $, thistactics deter resellers who buy the PS5 or Xbox console from other stores and resell it at much higher prices.
Target date of restocking
Target has changed things recently. Local Target stores can get Xbox Series X restocking anytimet and make it available for purchase online. The PS5 restocking at Target, however, occurs on specific release dates. We usually have a good idea of when, and in 2021 it's always a Wednesday or Thursday around 7:40 a.m. EDT.
The next Wednesday and Thursday in the calendar are June 9 and June 10, and Since the last Target PS5 restock was on Thursday, May 27 around 7:40 a.m. EDT, we'll be keeping an eye on and alerting you if this happens in the new week.
Sony Direct PS5 Restock date
- Rumored Sony Direct PS5 restock date: Random weekdays at 5 p.m. EDT
- Date and time of last restockSony Direct PS5 viewing: Thursday, May 20 at 5 p.m. EDT
- How to get it: Follow our PS5 restocking Twitter account
The Sony Direct PS5 restocking took place two weeks ago today, and we knew it would be the last for quite some time simply because our responses on Twitter indicated that many of the lucky PS5 buyers have received "late shipment" notices. This usually means that Sony Direct will stop PS5 sales for the foreseeable future. And here are two weeks later with no further PS5 drop from Sony Direct.
It's almost time for the official Sony store for the PlayStation brand to sell PS5 consoles again, judging by previous cases in which a relate shipping has put the retailer on hold. The good news about Sony Direct PS5 restockings is that they're generally fairer than other stores thanks to a virtual queue that randomizes who can buy the PS5.
There is no indication of a Sony Direct PS5 restocking this week (hence why it sits at the bottom of the list), but watch for this alert when it's time:
Amazon restock date
Amazon's upcoming restock is the most controversial of them all simply because it almost had two restocks in as many days last week. We saw thousands of people receiving a PS5 disc thanks to our reorder alert on Wednesday May 26th, but no one was able to get it the next day when there was a supposed second PS5 reorder ( the add to cart button was activated for about 30 minutes).
This means one of two things: Amazon has a PS5 and Xbox Series X inventory and it will likely have another restocking shortly after Memorial Day, or it was a larger Amazon.com glitch and add button to the padeny was never meant to go live (as they didn't actually have any consoles to start with). We are following Amazon just in case this is the first. But we also know that Amazon waited between 15 and 54 days between restockings, so it's unclear when the PS5 will be back in stock on Amazon.
We will continue to update our PS5 and Xbox Series X restocking news this weekend at should anything change, by constantly applying the expertise we have learned from past replenishment dates. Soon our alerts will have helped 40,000 people get a console in 2021.
