Walmart and Target will have more PS5 stock, but there’s a huge catch

PS5 stock

Last year, things didn’t go as smoothly as Sony released the PlayStation 5 console. This wasn’t the launch that Sony envisioned for its biggest console launch since the PS4. It all happened during a massive pandemic. The pandemic made any in-store launch events practically impossible, no matter what the product was. And the PS5 is no different.

We are still waiting to see when PS5 stock will come back in, as some are in stock now. It’s been nearly a year and the uber-popular console is still hard to find. Whether you want to head out to your nearest Walmart, Target, Gamestop, or just search for it on Amazon. It’s smart to take a look before the holiday shopping season is here. But, as it almost is here, you should be thinking about this if you want to get a PS5.

Where can I find PS5 stock near me?

Walmart confirmed that more PS5 stock is coming, but you may have the best luck online. PS5 stock will be available at certain points throughout the next few months at Walmart. You’ll have to keep checking Walmart’s online store.

There’s no telling how much stock Walmart will have on hand, so you’ll have to order quickly. You might not have time to choose what model to get. You should also look at Amazon. There are options for PlayStation 5 Digital Edition that does not take physical discs. But you can also get a PlayStation 5 that does take physical discs. Some of the best games on PS5 are coming out this holiday season.  It might be a good idea to open all the separate product pages in a browser to maximize your chances.

You can sign up and register to buy a PlayStation 5 directly from PlayStation. You just need to register at this link. There are no guarantees you’ll get one. But you will have a good chance this way.

More options to look at

GameStop announced that tomorrow, October 22, there will be PS5 stocking event. According to GameStop’s website, PlayStation 5 bundles will be in stock on Friday, October 22. It should obviously go without saying that quantities will be limited. The good news is that PlayStation 5 inventory is coming to GameStop stores across Los Angeles, Phoenix, Houston, San Antonio, Miami-Ft. Lauderdale, Chicago, and Boston. The bad news is we have no idea how much PS5 stock each store will get. But it’s likely safe to assume that supplies will be limited.

GameStop is calling this an “in-store PS5 bundle event,” which clearly means you’ll need to buy a bundle as opposed to just a console. Still, this is a great opportunity to score a PS5 ahead of the holidays.

Best Buy, Target, and B&H Photo are just a few of the places you’ll have to keep your eyes peeled at. You can visit the physical stores in hopes of nabbing one. You can also keep refreshing their websites. Available in both the physical or the digital editions of the PlayStation 5, you’ll have your pick. Finding the one that you want will make this holiday season a lot more enjoyable.

There is hope that you won’t have to search that long, as Sony is supposed to be filling in PS5 stock as the months roll on. But with more games coming out right before the holiday rush, you’ll find solid options. Once Call of Duty: Vanguard is released on November 5, 2021, there will be a big push for that. So you can keep your eyes peeled for more deals that may be surprising.
