Through Twitter, we're tracking the next PS5 stock from 12 sources, and we've seen a few PS5 consoles pop up over the last week. Monday was the first day for a PS5 restock from Sony Direct this week.

We're also checking PS5 inventory from other American stores: GameStop, Walmart, Amazon and Best Buy – a total of 12 US retailers that have carried the new PlayStation 5 on and off. They're all reliable. Even if you don't get to buy the console today, there may be a PS5 drop any one of the days this week.

Recent PS5 restock dates and times

New PS5 stock happened four times last week and five times the week before, so if you try each time, you should be able to purchase the system. This week, we've seen it in stock three times before today: twice on Sony Direct, and once on GameStop.

No, we don't know the date and time of the next PS5 restock if you miss it at Target. However, retailers are generally picking the same time for so-called "PS5 drops". Target likes to surprise us all with 5am-9am restocks, while Amazon does it at 3am EST (their midnight in PST). Sony Direct tends to pick anywhere from 5pm-7pm EST, although it's been earlier in the past. It's all quite random, which can be maddening as someone who wants to buy a PS5.
