Sony released the highly coveted PlayStation 5 more than a year ago, but the Sony gaming console remains one of the hardest-to-get. Celebrities like Michael B. Jordan and Naomi Osaka got their hands on the PS5 before it was even available in stores. For the rest of us, finding a next-gen console of our own is still a challenge, even in 2022.

But good news for gamers today — Amazon has confirmed a PS5 restock set for today at 11 a.m. ET (8 a.m. PT). This is Amazon's first next-gen console restock of the month. It was said that the digital editions of Sony's PlayStation 5 restock will be limited to Amazon Prime members, so you will need to be logged in to your Amazon Prime account to access this restock.


Walmart has restocked the consoles to their Walmart Plus subscribers in the past, so check back to see if they're in stock as well.



The Xbox Series X has also been restocked at Walmart within the past month, so check back to see when it will be back in stock. 

$499 AT WALMART
$593 AT AMAZON

Walmart Plus membership costs $98 per year or $12.95/month. There is also a free trial option, but you'll only get access to the PS5 restock and Xbox Series X restock if you have a paid Walmart Plus subscription.

If you’re wondering why the PS5 is so hard to get for us non-famous folk, in short, it’s because of the pandemic-induced global chip shortage — and an increased demand for entertainment tech for those who were stuck at home for the better part of two years. And it’s not just gaming consoles that are hard to find — there's a squeeze on chip-equipped items from cars to refrigerators to smartphones.

If you're looking for a waitlist to put your name on, PlayStation Direct is your best bet. There, you can register for an opportunity to purchase a PS5 directly from PlayStation. When a run of consoles becomes available, PlayStation emails the next batch of shoppers in the queue with private links to purchase. The only downside is that the site does not currently offer a timeline for when those links will become available. 

Retailers like WalmartBest BuyGamestop, and Target restock the console regularly, but those restocks often sell out in minutes. Keep reading to find out where the elusive console will hit shelves again — and how you can be among the first to know.

StockX is a place where you can buy and sell hard-to-find items like limited edition streetwear, sneakers and consoles such as the PlayStation 5. (StockX verifies the authenticity of every item.) At the time of publication, the Blu-ray Edition PlayStation 5 could be bought for $730, which represents a $230 markup over the $500 list price.
