PS5 Restock: GameStop, Walmart, Target, Best Buy & More Expected to Drop This Week – August 16-22

If you’re still looking for the next PS5 restock – here are the retailers to watch from August 16-22.

It’s been a big week for PlayStation, and we’re not just talking about restocks. Just a couple of days ago, we got a major rumor about a PS5 Pro releasing in 2023!

On top of that, it seems there’s a new FromSoftware PlayStation exclusive game on the way. All those who love a challenge will be delighted but Bloodborne fans aren’t getting the sequel they want just yet.

And a new Wipeout game is leaking for PS5 and PSVR 2, which is sure to be an exciting return to form for the franchise.

But with the PS5 stock shortage coming to an end soon, where can we get hold of a next-gen console this week? We’ve got a few ideas to help you in your quest.

Find all of last week’s PS5 restocks here!

And, without any further delay, here’s where you can find a PS5 restock this week August 16-22.

All PS5 Restocks August 16-22

GameStop PS5 Restock

GameStop PS5 Restock Dropping Imminently - August 3

GameStop PS5 Restock Date: August 17

Lately, GameStop has been the place to check when on the hunt for a PS5 restock. The company has been releasing waves of stock each week, although last week was a rare miss.

It’s worth noting, however, that you’ll need to be a PowerUp Rewards Pro member to take advantage of the latest restocks. Only a small amount of next-gen consoles are available to non-members, and that’s making the company better at avoiding scalpers.

It seems that PS5 consoles are also coming to GameStop in-store this month, so keep your eyes peeled. Checking your local stores could net you a good chance at going home with a new purchase that day!

UPDATE: GameStop and PlayStation Direct PS5 Restocks Due Imminently – August 17

Also, be sure to use Apple Pay at checkout when purchasing your PS5. LordOfRestocks on Twitter reports that the payment method will lead to the easiest possible checkout.

Walmart PS5 Restock

Walmart Has PS5 Stock In-Store for Walk-Ins - August 2021

Walmart PS5 Restock Date: This Week (Rumored)

Somehow, Walmart just keeps restocking PS5 consoles each week – even when there are none to sell. Evidence suggests that Walmart is restocking PS5 consoles without shipping past orders, and buyers from June are only just getting their purchases.

We imagine that Walmart will somehow restock once again this week, especially since it had 2 drops in one week last time around. But with Walmart orders from early July still waiting to ship, it’s going to be a long wait for any new buyers.

Thankfully, Walmart has some PS5 stock in-store for walk-ins in select areas.

Target PS5 Restock

PS5 Target In-Store Restock

Target PS5 Restock Date: This Week (Rumored)

When it comes to PS5 restocks, Target tends to have new drops every 2-3 weeks. Now that we’ve had 3 weeks without a restock, Target is surely getting ready to go live with another drop soon.

However, new reports suggest that PS5 stock is being sold in-store at Target in some areas! Be sure to check your local store regularly to avoid disappointment.

Best Buy PS5 Restock

PS5 at Best Buy

Best Buy PS5 Restock Date: August 17-19 (Rumored)

One of the most reliable PS5 restockers, Best Buy tends to have next-gen stock in a two weeks on, two weeks off schedule. We got the big drop we were expecting last week, and there should be another one coming between August 17-19.

Make sure to keep an eye on the stock trackers above, we’ll update you with any further developments.

PlayStation Direct PS5 Restock

PS5 restock

PlayStation Direct PS5 Restock Date: August 17

It’s now been 4 weeks without a PS5 restock from Sony, and we’re beginning to get worried. Buying a PS5 directly from the manufacturer is a great way to ensure you’re getting a fair price.

Although PlayStation Direct has been a regular restocker in the past, that’s certainly not the case right now. But even with the gap between restocks becoming increasingly large, we’re surely overdue a drop in the coming weeks.

UPDATE: GameStop and PlayStation Direct PS5 Restocks Due Imminently – August 17

Antonline PS5 Restock

PS5 at AntOnline

Antonline PS5 Restock Date: This Week (Rumored)

For the past 2 weeks, Antonline has had PS5 consoles in-stock, which leads us to believe that the online store’s supply is improving. As a regular restocker, you can always count on the retailer to have some next-gen consoles, but PS5s aren’t always available.

Thankfully, if Antonline does go live again, the retailer will have PS5 consoles in bundles. This way, you’ll be paying a little more for your next-gen consoles, but bundles do stop scalpers snatching up the stock.

Amazon PS5 Restock

PS5 at Amazon

Amazon PS5 Restock Date: This Week (Rumored)

Bear in mind, Amazon is one retailer that’s impossible to predict. The largest online store tends to drop PS5 consoles irregularly and whenever it feels like doing so.

Recently, we saw reports that suggested Amazon was removing its PS5 Disc listing to remove scalper bots from the site. However, it’s been several weeks since that point and no sign of a restock yet.

That’s all we know about the PS5 restock wave from August 16-22 at this point in time. Be sure to stay tuned for updated information as it arrives.

Don’t forget that we’ve got a major PlayStation event next month that’s got fans excited! On top of that, it seems like there’s a PS5 redesign already on the way.

With another strong week of drops, it’s becoming easier to believe Sony’s claims that PS5 stock issues are coming to an end!.
