PS5 Restock: GameStop, Antonline, Best Buy, PlayStation Direct & More Expected to Drop This Week – August 2-8

It’s another week for those waiting on a PS5 restock – here are the retailers to watch from August 2-8.

We’re finally into August after a busy month of PS5 restocks, and we’re hoping this month will be no slouch either. But will the first week of August kick things off with a bang?

We’ve already had huge news about a major PlayStation event dropping in September.

And Sony is reporting that the PS5 is now the fastest-selling console of all time, with 10 million units shipped! But it’s hard to believe that so many next-gen devices are out there when many gamers are still yet to see one.

Perhaps most excitingly, we’ve seen our first confirmation of a PS5 redesign coming soon!

With another week of restocks ahead of us, it’s no wonder that Sony believes PS5 stock issues are coming to an end soon!

Find all of last week’s PS5 restocks here!

Without further delay, here’s where to find a PS5 restock in the week running August 2-8.

Make sure to check our PS5 Stock Trackers for lightning-fast updates when new consoles go live:

All PS5 Restocks August 2-8

GameStop PS5 Restock

PS5 at GameStop

GameStop PS5 Restock Date: August 3

We were right on the money with last week’s GameStop restock, however the company is certainly trying to push users to sign up for its membership scheme. In the most recent drop, only PowerUp Rewards Pro members got a shot at the PS5 restock.

UPDATE: GameStop is going live with PS5 bundles at 11 AM EST on August 3!

Despite this inconvenience, GameStop is becoming one of the most regular restockers in the market. We definitely wouldn’t rule them out when it comes to the first week of August.

We recently heard that PS5 consoles are also coming to GameStop in-store in August. If this is true, we’d advise gamers to check their local stores!

As one final note, LordOfRestocks on Twitter reports that using Apple Pay at GameStop will lead to the easiest possible checkout of a PS5. Be sure to set it up early for the best results!

Antonline PS5 Restock

PS5 at AntOnline

Antonline PS5 Restock Date: August 5

We’re relatively confident that Antonline will have a PS5 for you this week, going by past trends. After all, the store hasn’t had a PS5 restock in two weeks now, which is rare for the online-only retailer.

UPDATE: August 5 PS5 drop is now live!

Hopefully, the store will return to form in August, starting with a nice PS5 drop this week. If not, we’ll be beginning to get worried.

Bear in mind, Antonline always sells PS5s in bundles, meaning that you’ll be paying a higher price for the console. However, it’s been known to be one of the easiest stores to buy from – you just have to get there first.

Best Buy PS5 Restock

PS5 at Best Buy

Best Buy PS5 Restock Date: August 3-5 (Rumored)

After 2 big weeks of PS5 restocks, Best Buy had a well-deserved break last week. Hopefully, that means that there’s enough stock building up to have another PS5 drop in the next few days.

Traditionally, Best Buy goes live on Thursdays, however, it occasionally surprises us with a Tuesday release. Keep your eyes on our stock trackers and never miss a drop when a PS5 goes live.

PlayStation Direct PS5 Restock

PS5 restock

PlayStation Direct PS5 Restock Date: This Week (Rumored)

It’s been a couple of weeks since our last PlayStation Direct PS5 restock, which is odd for Sony’s online store. Before the most restock, we had 3 weeks of silence from PlayStation, which was relatively unusual.

Hopefully, Sony will be redeeming itself with another stock drop this week. We’d certainly hope so, seeing as buying directly from the manufacturer is the best way to get a fair price for your PS5, without having to worry about bundles.

Walmart PS5 Restock

Walmart PS5 Restock Update - July 2021 Orders Still Waiting to Ship

Walmart PS5 Restock Date: August 5 (Rumored)

Although Walmart is a decent place to turn to when looking for a PS5 restock, we wouldn’t recommend buying from the retailer if you have a choice. After all, some Walmart PS5 orders from early July are still waiting to ship!

Some buyers suspect that the retailer is selling consoles that it doesn’t have in stock, which would be unfortunate. And it’s unlikely that the store will have another PS5 drop before all existing orders have been despatched.

Strangely, a reliable source claims that Walmart will be having a huge PS5 and Xbox Series X restock on August 5.

That said, it looks as though Walmart has PS5 stock arriving for in-store pickup lately! If you’ve got a local store, it might be worth taking a venture to see if there are any consoles in stock right now.

Target PS5 Restock

PS5 Target In-Store Restock

Target PS5 Restock Date: Unlikely This Week

Last week, on July 30, Target had its biggest PS5 restock in months! The major retailer usually drops every 2-3 weeks, so we don’t expect that the retailer will go live again so soon.

That said, if a decent number of Target orders weren’t completed, it’s always possible that a smaller restock could be on the cards.

What’s more, it looks as though PS5 stock is being sold in-store at Target too!

Amazon PS5 Restock

PS5 at Amazon

Amazon PS5 Restock Date: This Week (Rumored)

When it comes to online retailers, the hardest one to predict is Amazon. However, according to new reports, the company has just removed its existing PS5 Disc listing.

What this could mean is that Amazon is taking action against scalper bots who could snatch up the device as soon as it went live.

Could the store be getting ready for another restock soon? We’ll have to wait and find out as it’s likely that the company’s thousands of extra PS5 consoles are finally sold!

That’s all we know about the PS5 restock wave from August 2-8 right now, but be sure to stay tuned for updated information as it arrives.
