The next replenishment from the PS5 may come from Sony Direct on Tuesday, but there is still hope that we will see the console on Monday. Target is rumored to have the console inits inventory and simply needs to market it to consumers.
At the start of last week we saw Amazon's offering (last Monday was a holiday, so Tuesday was the first day of this week). Could Target have a similar surprise?
We are tracking the restocking of the PS5 from 12 major retailers in the US, and while we don't have a definitive date and time for the next PS5 release, we can see a model. Last week, we saw the PS5 restock four times: Amazon Tuesday, Sony Direct on Wedne sday, Antonline, and Best Buy on Friday.
That's four times you could have bought the PS5, and we instantly tweeted about restockings four times. As you will see below, many people left with the console.

The best retailers for PS5 restocking in the US
We follow PS5 inventory at trusted US retailers - if you see anything thatis too good to be true, it probably is. Don 't be fooled. We review the official Sony Direct store, GameStop, Walmart, Target, and Best Buy, among others. There are 12 different stores, and all of them sell the PS5 at its normal MSRP. Don't rely on PS5 scalpers and unknown dealers.
GameStop PS5 Advantage: This reputable US retailer sells PS5 bundles at a slightly higher price (but still at face value for everything). All of those dealers who are trying to make a profit have to sell easy-to-buy games for a high price. It is a much more difficult resale opportunity for them - and an advantage for real players.
Amazon PS5 replenishment time: We've seen Amazon randomly sell the PS5 at all kinds of times, but more often than not it is 3:00 am EST / 12:00 p.m. PST. This is a very specific PS5 replenishment time in line with when Amazon is still launching its new daily deals. No, there is no discount on the console, but it's built into their page refresh.
Sony Direct PS5 Basic Rules: Remember, every time the PS5 restocks in the United States arrive from Sony (usually Tuesday through Friday, usually from afternoon to early evening), it will send you to a virtual queue and randomly choose people to buy the much sought after video game console. You are not guaranteed to get one.
As we always warn, getting into the Sony Direct queue doesn't mean you'll find the console in stock. Most people will see "more than an hour wait" from the estimated wait time. This is what the message reads for us. For others, they will see a queue of a few minutes.
Here is moreres rules, according to Sony:
- First of all, you will need an active PSN account in order to complete the purchase.
- Second, you will have 10 minutes to purchase the PS5.
- Third, "PS5 consoles are now available but are not guaranteed even if you are in the queue ", according to Sony.a
Trust us, this is serious about buying the PS5 within ten minutes. Make sure you have all your information ready to be used to purchase PS5 .
