PlayStation Direct PS5 Restock Dropping Today – October 26

There’s a new PS5 restock happening today, October 26, and PlayStation Direct will once again be the place you can order one.

PS5 consoles have been very hard to purchase ever since they launched last Winter. However, signs are good for gamers who want to upgrade to next-gen.

Reports indicate that the PS5 shortage could be over soon. Plus, plenty of retailers like Amazon Target, and Walmart could be selling PS5 consoles this week too.

Also, we now know that PlayStation Direct will be having a PS5 restock today too. Find out how to secure your console!

PlayStation Direct PS5 Restock – October 26

PlayStation Direct had a huge PS5 restock last week, but that won’t stop the reliable retailer from restocking next-gen consoles today too!

Like previous restocks at the retailer, today’s PS5 restock will, first and foremost, be for players who have received an email invitation from PlayStation Direct. This email invite will contain an ‘access event’ link which will take them to the page where they can buy a PS5.

The email says that gamers with invites will be able to purchase a PS5 from PlayStation Direct at 11 AM – 4 PM PT / 2 PM – 7 PM ET. However, there is the chance that more consoles will go on general sale later in the day.

In last week’s invite-only restock at PlayStation Direct, the PS5 queue opened for everyone after the invitation-only sales. This gave anyone the chance to get a next-gen console.

Unfortunately, getting one in a restock like this isn’t guaranteed. Last week, fans were left frustrated after getting stuck in the PlayStation Direct queue.

Meanwhile, PlayStation Direct may be the best place to get a PS5 over the next few weeks. This is because console shortages will continue until Black Friday sales.

However, GameStop is also hosting a huge in-store PS5 restock event this week. What’s more, we know every GameStop store that will have PS5 bundles.

Finally, PlayStation fans will definitely want to check out this event. Find out how to watch the October 27 PlayStation State of Play presentation.

joined pro to get in on this promo. Had a ps5 console in my cart and when I went to submit payment the website advised there was an error and my cart was cleared. This happened THREE TIMES. called customer support, but they "can't do anything". Not good business, in fact, luring potential customers to join "pro" and then not following through smells of something fraudulent.
