PlayStation Direct PS5 Restock Happening Today – October 21

PlayStation Direct is having yet another PS5 restock today, October 21, giving gamers another chance to secure their next-gen console.

Finding a PS5 is proving to be very difficult for many gamers right now. And even when they come in stock, they sell out almost instantly.

Luckily, there have been a number of PS5 restocks at major retailers recently. This means that the PS5 stock shortage could finally be ending.

In the meantime though, it looks like Best Buy, Walmart, and more are restocking PS5s this week. Plus, it is now confirmed that PlayStation Direct will also be selling PS5 consoles at a specific time today too.

PlayStation Direct PS5 Restock – October 21

PlayStation Direct had a PS5 restock just yesterday. However, this won’t stop the retailer from doing exactly the same today.

As usual, today’s PlayStation Direct restock will be initially for players who have received an email invite from the retailer. Therefore, you’ll want to be checking your email inbox for the elusive invitation.

Make sure you know how to register to get a PS5 restock email invite from PlayStation Direct.

According to the email, the October 21 PlayStation Direct PS5 restock will begin at 11 AM PT / 2PM ET for those with email invites. Invited customers will then have until 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET to buy their PS5.

Be careful when buying your PS5 though. PlayStation Direct has been canceling PS5 orders.

At the moment, a restock for PlayStation fans without an invite seems unlikely. However, don’t rule out general sale PS5s once the exclusive access window ends.

What’s more, even if it has been better over the past few weeks, the PS5 and Xbox Series X stock availability may not last.

Meanwhile, if you can hold out until Black Friday, then could be the best time to get a next-gen console. There will be early access sales of PS5, Xbox Series X, and Switch OLED at Walmart.

Finally, if you’re one of the lucky few who has been able to buy a console, you have lots to look forward to. These are our most anticipated upcoming PS5 games for 2022 and beyond.

Restocking isn't the lroblem thiugh, it's scalpers using bits to buy them all before regular people can get them.
