Target PS5 Restock Expected Today -October 1

New insider information suggests that major US retailer Target will be having a PS5 restock later today, October 1.

It’s still almost impossible to buy a PS5 at the moment. Despite Sony’s new console almost being a year old at this point, potential customers still can’t find them on store shelves or even regularly in stock online.

Despite this, the PS5 has last been on sale very recently at many stores. This is due to continue too, as the PS5 stock shortage could finally be over soon.

What’s more, a number of major retailers like GameStop and Walmart will be having PS5 restocks this week. Plus, new information suggests that Target will also be dropping PS5 stock too.

Target PS5 Restock – October 1

Target is a reliable place to buy PS5s, but there hasn’t been a PS5 restock at Target since September 10. Although, this looks like it is about to change.

Trusted PS5 stock expert Jake Randall has checked the stock in Target stores across the US and believes there is enough to suggest that a drop is coming. This information comes from a Target employee’s inventory.

According to the inventory screenshot, the stock levels are higher than usual. This is because stores have PS5 Disc editions in the “low teens” as well as around 6-8 PS5 Digital consoles too.

Unfortunately, Randall doesn’t know exactly when this drop will happen but has a good idea about when the restock could arrive.

The rumored Target PS5 restock should happen in the morning of October 1. Additionally, if the restock does arrive, it will follow the pattern of being at sometime between 6 AM – 9 AM ET / 3AM – 6 AM PT.

UPDATE: The PS5 Digital and Disc editions were restocked at Target on October 1 at around this time, and have both now sold out.

Also, if you miss out on this restock there are plenty of other opportunities. GameStop held some in-store PS5 restocks for the first time and could continue to do so in the future.

Additionally, you can find out how to get a PS Direct invite to buy a PS5. This will be the easiest way to secure your console.

Finally, the PS Plus free games for October have been revealed. You’ll definitely want to be playing these!
