GameStop PS5 restock: time, store locations, bundles, crowds – and when to get it next

We're reporting live on the GameStop PS5 restock in-store event from all over the United States – and we have exclusive details.

Exclusive details: We reported on the GameStop PS5 restock on Friday, October 22, and we knew a lot more information about this rare in-store restock event (only the third in-person PS5 restock event in the US during 2021). 

Follow our PS5 restock tracker Matt Swider – follow and turn on notifications for live in-stock alerts because there's so much information, in fact, we've chosen to do a GameStop PS5 restock live blog – and we updated the PS5 news all day long.

When is the next GameStop PS5 restock? What time will it restock? Which GameStop store locations? How many PS5 consoles are in stock? What are the games in the bundle? And what are the crowd sizes like? Is it worth lining up?

We answered all of those questions in the live blog.

Our GameStop PS5 restock live blog started with good news: you had an excellent chance to get the Sony console today – if you live in one of these seven cities in the US.

  • Boston
  • Los Angeles
  • Phoenix
  • San Antonio
  • Houston
  • Miami-Ft Lauderdale
  • Chicago

Here's a recap of everything that happened.


GameStop PS5 restocks in-store events remain rare

The last time there was an in-store PS5 restock event in the US, it was at GameStop nearly one month ago (Friday, September 29). These in-person events are rare; most times we see PS5 for sale online.

There have been three PS5 restock in-store events so far in 2021 – besides the two at GameStop in the last 23 days ago, Best Buy also had a restock on September 23. Our inside sources say Walmart is holding back PS5 console inventory for Black Friday 2021.

We're back reporting live from the second GameStop restock event – and third overall in the US.

How early do you have to line up at GameStop?

It varies greatly and sometimes GameStop stores in major city centers see fewer people waiting overnight. In suburbs, there are more people, though, rules sometimes prevent camping for consoles (and other wares) at malls. In those cases, it's a scramble when security allows you to line up at sunrise.

We interviewed a mom and son who waited in GameStop's line in New York City for nearly three days to be first in line to get the console during the September 29 PS5 console drop. They also took a bus from Baltimore to be there.

On the tail end of that same 43-person line – that's how much inventory there was at most locations – was a man who showed up just 30 minutes before GameStop opened at 8am EDT (he had just gotten off an overnight shift at work and was out of breath) was the last to get a PS5 console that day.

It's risky to wait that long, as we have reports people are already lining up at some GameStop locations. We're going to go back at 6am, which we feel is a good time for lines in sleepy cities. For other GameStop locations, this may be too late.

Seven cities have the GameStop PS5 restock today

And we're off to Boston, one of seven cities (and their surrounding areas) to have the PS5 in stock today, Friday, October 22. There are 290 GameStop stores due to have the Sony console in the morning (whenever they normally open is the time).

In fact, our GameStop PS5 restock store locations page has all 290 addresses listed, something GameStop's own database didn't even get right. 

How will the crowds be in Boston? What about Chicago from Matt Swider's Twitter followers checking in? This is where our GameStop PS5 restock live blog is really going to get interesting.

Why Boston for us? It has stores that open up at 8am EDT, meaning we'll be the first to report on the PS5 restock inventory on Friday morning.

Full GameStop PS5 restock store locations list

This took a long time to put together, as even GameStop had the PS5 restock store locations addresses wrong. We fixed their errors.

Los Angeles GameStop PS5 restock store locations

Los Angeles was one of the first places we began to hear would have the PS5 for Friday. Sure enough, the sources were right and the City of Angles will indeed have Playstation 5 bundles on hand, first-come, first-serve.

GameStop PS5 restock crowds haven't show up... yet 

PS5 restock GameStop store

We've seen zero people in line overnight at some GameStop stores, including the store in downtown Boston. This photo was taken at 11:30pm EDT and there was no one in line except for Matt Swider and restock tracker/YouTuber Jake Randall.

One of the reasons for the lack of crowds? GameStop forces people to buy bundles, so the resellers stay home. That's good news for actual gamers, but expect to pay something like $740 today (we know this because GameStop had an online restock on Tuesday with the same bundle contents).

What's the GameStop PS5 restock bundle? How many are in stock?

More good news to start out PS5 restock live blog. There are plenty of consoles at the locations we've checked: 60 PS5 Disc consoles in total.

And the bundle is actually a good one: the PS5 Disc console, Ghost of Tsushima, Far Cry 6, a $50 GameStop gift card and a 12-month membership to PlayStation Plus. We've confirmed that it'll cost $740, which is face value for everything.

But that on-the-ground reporting is what counts: 60 consoles and no one in line at midnight. You're in good shape if you're reading this in time and can still head to your local GameStop.

PS5 restock alert tweet from Matt Swider

Did you catch that? There was a very small PS5 restock at Sam's Club overnight right as we were updating this GameStop PS5 restock liveblog. We also saw Best Buy earlier on Thursday afternoon.

Sam's Club doesn't have nearly as many consoles on hand and isn't as popular as Walmart (which owns the club retailers, actually) or GameStop, but a few people did get the console bundle from our alert, according to the happy replies.

GameStop PS5 restock crowds are forming in the US

According to the gracious followers of Matt Swider, we're getting a better idea of how many people are in line, how many consoles are in stock and when people first started to camp outside of GameStop stores around the country.

"There's a total of three locations with consoles in the area that are all about 10-minute drive of each other," PS5 restock seeker Rebecca D. told Matt Swider while she waited in line in Boston. At one location there were about "had about 3-5 people at 9pm ET – and one person who had already been waiting since 1pm ET."

This is how it usually works: a few diehards who have been waiting so long to buy a PS5 console that they're willing to wait almost 24 hours outside of GameStop. But with between 50 and 60 consoles at stores today, our GameStop PS5 restock liveblog doesn't foresee them selling out at every location right away.

GameStop PS5 restock lines are getting longer at stores

We're back with the GameStop PS5 restock live blog, and wow did the line grow overnight. But you still have a chance to buy the console at key store locations.

There are currently 48 people in line here at GameStop's flagship store in Boston, and they have 60 consoles on hand, according to the area's District Manager. But, of course, the line is growing quickly this morning. They ope in less than an hour. People are excited.

GameStop is handing out tickets. My friend is No. 32 of 60 in line

About 60 minutes in advance of the store opening, GameStop managers count the people in line. They just handed out tickets to people – my friend who has been waiting months for the PS5 is No. 32 of 60, noting "It's finally happening."

I haven't identified any resellers in this GameStop PS5 restock line, which is a relief. This is why it's sometimes better not to have PS5 for sale at MSRP.

GameStop PS5 restock selfie time – because it's almost time

The great PS5 restock Target source Jake Randall is also scoping out the GameStop PS5 restock line, and he and Matt have been asked to take plenty of selfies with the happy (literally overnight) campers.

People are starting to enter, but it appears to be two people at a time in order to adhere to social distancing guidelines for indoors.

And here it is! These guys are among the first people in the US to get the PS5 from GameStop today. They got the PS5 Disc console with Far Cry 6, Ghost of Tsushima, a $50 GameStop gift card and 12-month PlayStation Plus membership.

Months of waiting for the PS5... is finally over. We'll start chatting more with the people in line. 

Here's a video of the entire line from Jake Randall, who you should also find on Twitter.

Cameo or creep shot?

Cameo or creeper shot of Matt Swider live blogging from the GameStop PS5 restock line? Either way, "we love to see it," as Jake Randall would say. 

Frey, the author of this tweet said he's getting the PS5 for his brother. He's No. 55 in line, just five from the cut-off (60 people will get the console from this Boston store).

The GameStop PS5 restock line situation

PS5 restock line GameStop

(Image credit: Matt Swider / Instagram)

Some exclusive GameStop PS5 restock news for you: there are now over 60 people in line at the flagship Boston, so the District Manager here is sending people to other stores in the area, and surprisingly, the numbers she shared with TechRadar leave opportunities to still get the console if you drive around.

  • Framingham has only 30 people in line
  • Stoughton has 28 people in line
  • Dedham has 27 people in line
  • Brockton has 32 people in line
  • River has 60 people in line and will sell out

The moral of the story? The Boston area GameStops have 60 consoles (it'll slightly vary by region), and while too many people showed up here, other places have half of the inventory left. GameStop trying to redirect people to these other stores shows they actually care about people getting the console.

The GameStop PS5 restock live blog will continue, even though this particular Boston store has sold out (look at the love bog entry for where inventory remains here and keep in mind, other cities may see similar situations).

I'm sticking around to live blog – how's my recycle bin desk? – and will send updates about other cities where the GameStop restock is happening based on my followers intel. Also, happy to take selfies with people.

We're closing out this GameStop PS5 restock live blog today with some amazing feedback from people who actually got their console through the alerts of PS5 restock tracker Matt Swider. 

There are thousands of people who have replied via tweets or sent a direction message like the ones below. It's working.

We had a list of all 290 addresses (it took a long time to put together) when GameStop didn't even have the correct store locations.

For those doubting the accuracy of our PS5 restock alerts, just look at the impact of the thousands of people in the US who got the console because of Matt Swider's restock tweets. We had a list of all 290 addresses (it took a long time to put together) when GameStop didn't even have the correct store locations.

And it's feedback like this on Twitter that keeps Matt motivated to do track PS5 and other consoles 24/7.

Where is the next GameStop PS5 restock location and date? Stay tuned.

So where and when will the next GameStop PS5 restock take place? We're already hearing of locations and dates from our retail sources. But we're only hearing it from one source, and our journalism procedures require two independent sources before we publish anything (we don't want to send people rushing into a line that won't actually get you a console.

In other words, stay tuned for the next GameStop PS5 restock live blog.
