The festive season is upon us, and thousands of gamers are still searching for a PS5 before the Christmas holidays – here’s how to find one.
It’s been a tough year when it comes to next-gen console hunting. Despite the PS5 being released in November 2020, it’s still as hard as ever to get your hands on the gaming device.
This is especially true as we enter the last few weeks of the year, with gamers desperately trying to find a PS5 before Christmas. Now, the holiday is only days away, and we know where fans need to be looking.
We only have a few more opportunities to snatch up a PS5 before this year’s sales are over. It’s clear that retailers are trying to shift PS5 stock before Christmas.
And with retailers offering special Christmas restocks before the end of 2021, there’s still a chance to grab yourself a console.
How to Get a PS5 Before Christmas
If you’re looking for a PS5 before Christmas, here’s what you need to know:
The holiday restocks aren’t over just yet, and stores will be pushing out their Christmas PS5 stock over the next few days.
For all the latest restock information, here’s what we know about PS5 restocks coming soon!
GameStop PS5 Restock
Already, we’re hearing rumors about a new GameStop in-store restock coming soon. However, in the meantime, new PS5 bundles should be going live at Gamestop’s online store shortly.
The bundles may be expensive, but GameStop just had a massive Xbox restock which suggests that it might have more than a few consoles on offer.
Be sure to be a PowerUp Rewards Pro member for access to the latest drops as they arrive.

Amazon PS5 Restock
Amazon’s last PS5 restock was towards the end of November, and the retailer does favor going live at the end of a month. However, despite the online store being incredibly unpredictable, we believe it’ll drop stock again soon.
The largest online retailer is never one to miss a holiday sales opportunity, after all. Therefore, we’re keeping a close eye on Amazon over the next few days.

Walmart PS5 Restock
Lately, Walmart has become one of our most regular PS5 restockers, and we’re certain that a new sale will go live before Christmas. However, while this store might let you buy a PS5 before the holiday arrives, you might not actually receive it for some time.
Walmart is known for its lengthy PS5 shipping times, due to the store selling stock that it doesn’t have at the time. If you buy from Walmart this Christmas, you might not actually get the PS5 until 2022.
But with stock levels being what they are, getting yourself onto the waiting list isn’t a bad option. So long as Walmart doesn’t cancel PS5 orders again.

With that in mind, we could see a Target PS5 drop in the next couple of weeks, just in time for Christmas!

Antonline PS5 Restock
Another retailer that never likes to miss a holiday is Antonline. Although a lot of people may not have heard of the store, Antonline is a reliable retailer that offers regular next-gen restocks without a membership fee.
However, the store does sell PS5 consoles in bundle-form, so expect to pay a little more for your device. The good news is that these bundles help stop scalpers from snatching up stock.
Antonline is also known for fast shipping times, making it one of the best ways to get a PS5 before Christmas. Be sure to turn notifications on for the Antonline Twitter account to get to new drops early.
Sony PlayStation Direct PS5 Restock
Right now, Sony’s PlayStation Direct is offering gamers a chance to sign up for a PS5 drop directly. If you get an email from Sony, you’ll get a shot at an easy PlayStation 5 purchase before Christmas!
Make sure you’re eligible for a PS5 restock at Sony to be in with a chance at a next-gen restock this holiday!
That’s everything we know about getting a PS5 before the Christmas holidays for now. However, we’ll update this article as new information arrives.
In other recent news, Sony just patented a new PlayStation Mobile controller! It seems that mobile gaming could be coming to PlayStation devices very soon, and that’s not the only thing.
Plus, it looks like next year we might be on the hunt for the new PSVR 2 as well. Let’s just hope that supply is more plentiful than the PS5 itself.
