If you’re looking to score a PS5 this holiday weekend, we’re here to help. So far, the only confirmed restock for Thanksgiving Day is at GameStop. The retailer will have the PS5 available for purchase in stores at select retailers. You can search your city/zip code on GameStop’s website to see if a location near you is participating. Earlier in the week, we saw restocks at Amazon and Walmart. Best Buy has also teased the PS5 in its Black Friday ad, but the retailer hasn’t revealed when consoles will be available.
The PS5 has passed its first birthday, but despite impressive sales numbers , the console remains scarce. You’ve never been able to walk in a store and find one on shelves, and online stock is almost always sold out. With the holiday season upon us, demand for the PS5 will only go up as it gets added to a flurry of wishlists. It may be quite difficult to find a PS5 or PS5 Digital in time for the holidays, but it won’t be impossible. To help you out, we’ve rounded up all of the retailer listings for the PS5 and PS5 Digital in one place. Each time a restock is announced or randomly pops up, we’ll update this article.
We see at least a couple of PS5 restocks each week at major retailers such as Best Buy, Walmart, and GameStop. Sony also has fairly regular restocks at PS Direct. But you always have to be fast (and lucky) to purchase one before stock runs out. Consoles tend to sell out in minutes, if not seconds, so it’s really all about nimble fingers and good timing.

Black Friday PS5 restocks
Walmart had a Black Friday restock for the PS5 and PS5 Digital on November 22. The restock was only available for Walmart+ subscribers. It’s unclear if Walmart will have more PS5 restocks for Black Friday throughout the week.
Amazon had a Black Friday restock for the PS5 on November 23. It was limited to Prime members and sold out instantly.
GameStop will have the PS5 and PS5 Digital in stock at select stores on Thanksgiving. We’re still waiting on announcements from other retailers, but we anticipate that more retailers will have the PS5 and PS5 Digital in stock for Black Friday.
Keep in mind there’s also the chance that PS5 restocks will be limited to paid members at select retailers in the coming weeks (like Walmart’s Black Friday restock).
Best Buy recently launched a $200/year membership called Totaltech, and select restocks have been limited to members. Walmart has done the same for its $98/year membership. Likewise, GameStop has made certain restocks only available to PowerUp Rewards Pro members. And, of course, Amazon could lock PS5s behind its Prime membership. Meanwhile, retailers like Costco and Sam’s Club–which require memberships to shop–have always required memberships for PS5 restocks.
