The PS5 is certainly at the top of many Christmas lists this year, but the coveted console is proving elusive to some. The limited stock of the Playstation 5 means that some people may not have had their Christmas wishes fulfilled this morning.
Since its launch in November, the PS5 has proven to be quite difficult for people to get their hands on. This is mainly due to the health and safety guidelines for the COVID-19 pandemic, leading many stores to make the console available online only.
As a result, players had to deal with bots and money changers as stocks ran out online in seconds.
Customers have been updating sites like Walmart, Best Buy and Target in an effort to get their hands on a PlayStation and obsessively checking out Reddit and Twitter for new refueling tips.
The rush of Christmas has slowed, which means there is more chance of winning luck when buying a PS5 in the New Year.
Don’t lose hope – Sony recently tweeted that it is working on producing extra stock for the PS5 to get ready for the end of the year.
“Demand for PS5 is unprecedented, so we wanted to confirm that more PS5 inventory will reach retailers before the end of the year – stay in touch with local retailers,” said Sony.
Below we have the latest PS5 refueling information from Target, Best Buy, Walmart, Newegg, PopFindr, BrickSeek and more.
Target PS5 Refueling
Target has not made major refueling announcements, but the retailer has been quietly adding new inventory to its website in recent months. The stock varies in different stores, so use the website to keep track of what is available at your local branch.
Inventory checkers like PopFindr and BrickSeek don’t seem to be tracking Target anymore, so the only one who keeps track of their inventory is on their website. When available, inventory is limited to one PlayStation per customer.
Best buy PS5 Restock
Best Buy managed to secure some PS5 inventory on Monday, but it has sold out. The retailer did not alert customers to the latest stock drop, so it is worth keeping an eye on social networks and Best Buy’s website.
Walmart PS5 Refueling
Walmart is currently out of stock and does not accept waiting orders. The company recently promised customers that it was doing everything possible to combat the “bots” that buy products before normal.
On December 15, the company said in a statement, “We have more next generation consoles online soon and we continue to work hard to get them into the hands of as many customers as possible.”
Newegg PS5 Refueling
Newegg launched more PS5 shares last week, but the console is currently sold out. More shares could be released silently, so it’s worth checking regularly.
Follow Newegg on Twitter and turn on notifications. Newegg has an automatic notification option for its PS5 package, which includes the PlayStation 5 console, DualSense controller, Demon’s Souls and an HD camera for PS5. Customers can register a Newegg account, enter their email address and be notified when the $ 699 package is back in stock.
Antonline PS5 Refueling
A very limited number of PS5 consoles were released during the week on Antonline after Monday’s refueling announcement. However, the company will not announce further stock falls on Twitter, so the site is your best bet.
PopFindr PS5 and BrickSeek PS5 inventory scanners
Inventory checkers, like PopFindr and BrickSeek, allow shoppers to see which stores at Walmart, Target, Best Buy and GameStop have PS5s in stock – but some stores have started to block them.
