PS5 Restock: GameStop, PS Direct, Walmart & More Expected to Drop This Week – April 18-24

Those looking to get a PS5 console are in luck this week of April 18-24, as many retailers prepare for several possible restocks!

PS5 still has a high demand. Unfortunately, Sony has not been able to meet this wave of popularity for its console since it launched.

Thus far, retailers still struggle to keep enough units available for their clientele. This has led to more than a couple of lackluster restocks here and there.

Furthermore, after a year since it launched, PlayStation 5’s popularity is not slowing down.

There are plenty of highly anticipated games like LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, and Ghostwire: Tokyo launching on the platform.

All this contributes to the console’s success and scarcity. Fortunately, retailers are once again defying the odds, possibly hosting several PS5 restocks this week of April 18-24!

All PS5 Restocks – April 18-24

GameStop PS5 Restock

GameStop PS5 Console Restock

GameStop PS5 Restock Date: Possibly This Week (Rumored)

GameStop last restocked PS5 consoles in-store on April 2. After this drop, there was not a leftover drop as there is on some occasions.

The retailer could be preparing for another PS5 restock this week of April 18-24. If the GameStops goes for an in-store event, it will most likely take place on the weekend, tentatively Saturday, April 23.

Now, if this turns out to be an online drop, GameStop restocks PS5 units generally on Tuesdays at around 11 AM ET.

In the past, GameStop has restocked PS5 consoles in-store twice a month. This has not been a constant for the retailer, but it is definitely in the realm of possibilities.

PlayStation Direct PS5 Restock Date: Possibly This Week (Rumored)

PlayStation Direct has not restocked PS5 consoles since March 24. This retailer tends to send out invites for its restocks in or after the second week of each month.

Considering this cadence, it is likely a PS Direct PS5 restock could take place between April 18-24.

Remember that you need to register to receive a PS Direct PS5 restock email invite to participate in these drops!

Amazon PS5 Restock

Amazon PS5 Console Drop

Amazon PS5 Restock Date: Possibly This Week (Rumored)

The last time Amazon restocked PS5 units was on March 30. As is usual with this retailer’s restocks, the last drop was reserved for Prime members.

Usually, Amazon drops PS5 consoles on or after the 20th day of the month. Considering this trajectory, it is possible a PS5 restock could happen in the week of April 18-24.

Keep in mind this restock could be moved to the upcoming week. Nevertheless, it is still a good idea to keep an eye on updates this week!

In the past, Amazon has skipped some months when it comes to console restocks. For this reason, a drop for this month is not guaranteed.

Best Buy PS5 Restock

Best Buy PS5 Console Restock April 18-24

Best Buy PS5 Restock Date: Possibly This Week (Rumored)

This retailer restocked PS5 consoles on April 1. Nevertheless, this was not a usually announced drop.

Best Buy has changed its approach to console restock by randomly dropping PS5 units in-store at selected locations.

Through this new in-store restock tactic, many gamers have been able to get their PS5 console in-store by using this Best But app trick.

Given all these changes, there are still chances Best Buy could host an online restock reserved for its TotalTech members.

Mind you, this is a long shot as Best Buy has not restocked consoles for its Totaltech members in a long time.

Antonline PS5 Restock

Antonline PS5 Drop

Antonline PS5 Restock Date: Unlikely This Week

Some weeks ago, we predicted Antonline would drop PS5 bundles in the week of April 8. Now, against all odds and our prediction last week, the retailer dropped consoles bundles once again on April 14!

Yet again, Antonline has no strict schedule for PS5 drops. Sometimes it drops consoles twice per month, and some other months there is no restock at all.

This last dropped indeed surprised many and further cemented the fact that predicting this retailer’s restocks is tough duty.

If you have no problem paying the bundle price for your console, you can follow Antonline’s Twitter for live alerts of their restocks.
