Sunday update: The PS5 restock at Sony Direct was snapped up within minutes, but we fully expect everyone to get another chance to buy PS5 from this same source. It’s been available through this store on weekdays, according to Sony’s unflappable schedule, meaning you should keep your browser tuned to this page on Monday, December 14. It’s always at a random time during the day.
Until that restock date, you should also check out Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart for surprise PS5 console drops. Amazon had restock at midnight PST this week, and Best Buy came through for us last week. Walmart is overdue for more PS5 restock, so it’s wise to do periodic checks there, too.
If you’re searching where to buy PS5, Sony Direct had PS5 consoles in stock, but they quickly sold out again. Sadly, they only seem to be in stock for a short period, but there’s good news: they seem to be opening up the purchase queues every weekday, so check back in routinely to see if they’re back in stock.
Even more convenient: the queues seem to be loading from the same link every time it’s back in stock, so check the links below on a regular basis to see if new ones have been added – if they are, we’ll update this page.
Just a heads up when you do get into the queue: you’ll probably be waiting for awhile. We had estimated wait times of over an hour when we’ve tried, so you’re not alone if you see a similar prompt. Stay strong.
