Here's Where You Can Pick Up a PS5 This Week

Gamers have been flocking from store to store chasing PS5 restock since launch due to limited supply.

This has forced many buyers to pay over retail prices to resellers, and bots quickly cleaning out stores as they drop new PS5 stock.

To get ahead of the rush, it's important to know where the next PS5 restock is coming. And good news, there are plenty of PS5 restocks expected this week!

With that in mind, here's all the latest info on PS5 restock and where you can pick up a PS5 this week.

HANDS ON: Pick up your own PS5 at these stores this week

Best Buy has been very consistent throughout the month, and as such we can reliably predict another PS5 restock on Friday, April 2nd.


A leak also points to Target dropping in back to back weeks this week after coming through just days ago. While this has no ETA, based on previous drops, look for Target PS5 restock on Wednesday, March 31st or Friday, April 2nd.

PS5 Restock Updates

It should be a very busy week for PS5 restock, so you don't want to miss your chance to get the console at retail price!


Recent rumors suggested Amazon would drop a new PS5 restock on March 18th - to the tune of over 45,000 consoles. After missing that date, things are a bit up in the air.

Nearing 3 weeks after the expected drop, Amazon will likely have new PS5 stock soon - our expectations are between March 29th and March 31st.

Best Buy

Best Buy was the last major US store to have PS5 stock, dropping on Friday, March 26th as we predicted.

Best Buy is the most consistent store for PS5 stock, offering sales nearly every Friday. That means you can next expect PS5 restock at Best Buy on Friday, April 2nd, at roughly 12pm EST.

Walmart last had PS5 consoles in stock on March 18th, but quickly sold out.

After restocking the Xbox Series X console last week on March 26th, we expect Walmart will sell PS5's this week - likely arriving between March 31st and April 2nd.

Perhaps the most disappointing major retailer in recent weeks for PS5 stock has been Gamestop.

Gamestop hasn't dropped any new PS5 stock since March 9th, and are increasingly being pushed out of the space by other stores.

Despite this, it could be the company's time to drop another major PS5 restock.

If Gamestop receives PS5 stock this week - we expect it will be posted between March 30th and April 1st, as the company tends to drop midweek.

Scalping on the decline

While the PS5 is still being targeted by scalpers each time stock becomes available, it looks like the scalping market is on the decline.

RETAIL: Actual retail prices are looking more possible for PS5 consoles

In the UK, several stores including CEX have dropped their prices to match retail, and prices on platforms like eBay have also steadily declined in recent weeks.

This bodes well for the US, where gamers are still fighting to secure their PS5 order for retail price.
