Last week was a nightmare for PS5 restock hunters, but we’ve got eyes on an upcoming wave between October 11-17.
Although October started off strong, last week was a disappointing dry spell for PS5 hunters everywhere. However, we believe that more than a few retailers will make up for it this week.
But you’ll have to be fast to these upcoming drops, as scalpers are still a major issue. That’s why this Japanese store is taking drastic measures to counter scalpers!
Lately, more next-gen orders are being canceled than ever too. Here’s how to stop your PS5 from being canceled after ordering!
And when you’ve got hold of the next-gen device, you can now trial PS5 games for free, thanks to Sony’s new demo functionality.

Now, let’s take a look at everything we know about the upcoming PS5 restock wave between October 11-17.
All PS5 Restocks – October 11-17
Target PS5 Restock
Target PS5 Restock Date: October 13
Last week, we saw insider Jake Randall report that Target stores were getting PS5 stock faster than usual. Because of this, it’s extremely likely that a PS5 restock is imminent, and dropping early this week.
UPDATE: Target is now live!
Each store had between 5-15 consoles ready to drop last week. If the retailer has enough to warrant a restock this coming week, we expect we’ll hear more from Randall very soon.
Now that PS5 nationwide restocks are returning to Target at last, next-gen hunters are very happy to see the store back in business.
Best Buy PS5 Restock
Best Buy PS5 Restock Date: October 11
Recently, Best Buy launched a new Totaltech member system that should let users get hold of a PS5 or Xbox Series X easily. However, Best Buy’s new membership is ridiculously expensive for what it is – so we don’t recommend it unless you use the store regularly.
Since the membership is now being pushed to console hunters, we expect Best Buy to have a PS5 restock very soon.
However, like GameStop, we might start seeing member-exclusive drops as the site pushes the subscription on eager console hunters…
PlayStation Direct PS5 Restock
PlayStation Direct PS5 Restock Date: This Week (Rumored)
Shockingly, PlayStation Direct didn’t actually have a PS5 restock to offer us last week. That said, Sony consistently has new consoles in stock almost every single week.
You’ll need to make sure you’re eligible to receive a PlayStation Direct invite to secure your PS5 here.
Perhaps the fact that PlayStation Direct went live with 3 restocks in a week at the end of September is why it’s wavering so early this month.
Amazon PS5 Restock
Amazon PS5 Restock Date: This Week (Rumored)
Although Amazon is one of the hardest PS5 restockers to predict, it looks as though the online store may have consoles very soon. It seems that an Amazon PS5 restock could be imminent, as the site removes its existing PS5 listings.
Our most recent Amazon PS5 restock was announced in advance, and we hope this one follows suit!
After all, the world’s largest online retailer is sometimes a little unpredictable with its restock times.
GameStop PS5 Restock
GameStop PS5 Restock Date: This Week (Rumored)
At the end of last month, GameStop had its first PS5 restock in-store in quite some time. Right now, there don’t seem to be any plans for another similar drop, but online restocks are as frequent as ever.
If you’re a PowerUp Rewards Pro member, expect another GameStop PS5 restock shortly. However, the last GameStop online PS5 drop was so huge that the company allowed even non-members to take part!
Antonline PS5 Restock
Antonline PS5 Restock Date: October 13
It’s been a couple of weeks since Antonline’s latest PS5 restock which means that one is surely around the corner. If this is the week for it, you’d do well to turn notifications on for the site’s official Twitter page.
UPDATE: Antonline is now live!
While Antonline isn’t one of the biggest retailers out there, it’s definitely a good option for those quick on the draw.
Bear in mind that Antonline sells PS5 consoles in bundle-form. Because of that, you’ll pay a little more for your next-gen device, but scalpers are less of an issue.
Walmart PS5 Restock
Walmart PS5 Restock Date: This Week (Rumored)
We recently had one of the biggest next-gen console drops of 2021 appear at Walmart. Now, the retailer is still busy restocking consoles, but the PS5 was notoriously absent last week.
With a focus on the Switch OLED and Halo Infinite Xbox Series X, Walmart’s most recent restock was still huge. Let’s just hope that it saved more PlayStation consoles for the following week.
Be wary though, Walmart is selling consoles it doesn’t have yet. Buying from the retailer will effectively place you on a waiting list for a next-gen device.
That’s everything we know about the upcoming PS5 restock wave from October 11-17 for now. However, we’ll be updating this page as and when new information arrives so check back often!
Take a look at when the PS5 was last in-stock for all retailers here.
In case you missed it, another huge PlayStation Studio acquisition is here!
And on top of that, we just found out why God of War Ragnarok was really delayed…
