Saturday update: Follow our PS5 and Xbox restock Twitter tracker for alerts, and please only trust the 12 reliable stores we list below to avoid the many scams that are out there.

The chances of a PS5 and Xbox restock over the weekend are slim, but we can tell you when the consoles come back in stock. Thanks to a 24/7 restock Twitter tracker, we can send you alerts when the consoles are back in stock. We're also told that Target may be the next store in the US with the PS5 Disc version (so far not the PS5 Digital Edition), so look out for our alerts on Monday, March 8.

Here's how to get alerts:

You'll get a push notification – if you tap the bell icon – that looks something like this:

About 25% of our PS5 and Xbox Twitter tracker replies show got the new consoles from our alerts. That's us putting their console of choice in their hands. It's gotten easier over time as more people get the Sony and Microsoft systems – there's slightly less pressure today than there was two weeks ago.

We knew Best Buy, Walmart and GameStop would have an PS5 and Xbox restock, and our DMs are open to see if Target is truly going to have new console stock Monday. So far, people in the know are saying it's coming soon. We'll update this story as soon as we nail down a time.

It's important to point out that you won't be able to order from retail stores. Some stores allow for in-store pickup (Target and certain Best Buy stores), however, none of the actual ordering takes place in stores.

Why PS5 at Best Buy next makes sense

We just saw about every other major retailer release PS5 stock this week: Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, ANTonline, GameStop and Sam's Club.

Microsoft has also had a few opportunities for the Xbox Series X on its own site, but Sony PlayStation Direct has been unusually silent this week. If this Best Buy restock doesn't happen until next week, Sony Direct may be your best bet.

However, we were told that Sony Direct's last restock, on Wednesday, February 24, saw delays beyond the promised two-day shipping for PlayStation Plus members. It won't arrive to them for another week. That's likely why Sony hasn't released more stock of the console – it's backed up.

Through Twitter, we're tracking the next PS5 and Xbox stock from more than 13 sources, and we've seen a few PS5 consoles pop up over the last week and, even better news, high success rates for people who have been looking for restock for months. 

Even if you don't get to buy the console today, there may be a PS5 and Xbox drop any one of the days in the upcoming week.
