A note on PS5 restocks

PS5 restock is incredibly difficult to pin down. Despite our best efforts to bring you timely updates, Tom's Guide can't guarantee you'll be able to purchase a console. Nevertheless, we are committed to bringing you up-to-the-minute information on all restocks as soon as they happen. 

Update: The latest GameStop PS5 restock is now over. Check our PS5 restock hub for the latest stock updates and the retailers to check for inventory next. 

GameStop is holding its latest PS5 restock right now. News of this restock first came via Reddit tip-off last week and GameStop teased the drop yesterday with a cryptic tweet. The retailer is now taking fresh orders of the PS5 console, this is its first drop since August 25. 

The PS5 restock is offering three bundles to choose from: two for the PS5 disc edition and one for the PS5 Digital edition. You will need to be a PowerUp Pro Reward member in order to order a console in this restock. Follow the guide below to get signed up, and be quick as these bundles won't stick around for long.

PS5 restock tracker — stores to check

This drop hasn't come out of the blue. GameStop recently tweeted a reminder to its followers that PowerUp Reward Pro members get early access to online next-gen console drops. This might have seemed like a fairly mundane post but it was actually a big clue that GameStop was getting ready for a drop. 

This seemingly harmless tweet was significant because previously when GameStop has posted a "reminder" to its followers, it's restocked the PS5 the very next day. So this social media post was actually a subtle clue that a GameStop PS5 restock would be taking place shortly.

Another indication that a drop was just around the corner came from a Reddit user who claimed that GameStop was gearing up for a restock last week. While the dates this untested source gave, last Wednesday/Thursday, were obviously wrong, we now know the restock was merely delayed into this week. 

The user in question also provided screenshots of the bundles which added a degree of legitimacy to their claims. These bundles have proved to be the exact packages that GameStop will have on offer later today.

These bundles definitely fit the mold of previous GameStop PS5 restocks. The retailer has previously bundled the console with Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut and various sports games (such as Madden 22). Plus, the digital bundle comes with a Media Remote, which fits GameStop’s pattern of adding confusing items to bundles.

It's also been confirmed that this latest GameStop PS5 restock will be exclusively available to PowerUp Reward Pro members. This isn’t a huge shock as the retailer has been offering customers signed up to its premium membership tier exclusive access to PS5 restocks for more than two months now. We recommend paying the $15 for an annual Pro membership — after all, that’s a small price if it allows you to finally get your hands on a PS5.

If you'd rather not sign up for a PowerUp Reward Pro membership or are only after the PS5 console standalone why not check our PS5 restock hub. This comprehensive guide is updated daily with the latest stock information and features all the buying advice and all-important retailer links you'll need to secure a PS5 this holiday season.  

How to become a PowerUp Rewards Pro Member

In early June, GameStop announced that it's changing the way it handles console restocks. It will give first dibs to its PowerUp Rewards Pro members. Although there's a free tier, only Pro members will get early access to the restocks. Membership starts at $14.99 per year and includes perks like a Game Informer subscription, $5 reward coupons per month (total of $60/year), 10% extra trade credit on games/accessories, and a $5 welcome certificate. If you sign up today, you'll have access to the restock. 

PowerUp Rewards Pro membership: from $15 @ GameStop
GameStop's PowerUp Rewards Pro membership already came with a host of benefits, but the retailer has added one more — early access to next-gen console restocks. If you're still after a PS5 or Xbox Series X, this could be $15 very well spent. View Deal

GameStop restock — tips and tricks

It may be obvious, but you'll want to have a GameStop account and be logged into your account when the restock begins. If you click the "add to cart" button and nothing happens, try refreshing the page. 

Alternatively, you could clear your browser cookies and try to open the page via an incognito web browser. You might be asked to solve a captcha before adding the console to your cart. We don't yet know if this restock will be opened up to the general public after the early access window. 

What to do if you miss out

As with the previous GameStop PS5 restock events, these units will sell out fast. So if you missed out don't worry. There will be other restock events in the future. Also, make sure to follow our restock coverage for up-to-the-minute news on the latest restocks. In the meantime, you can browse other retailer pages to see if they may have quietly added any new inventory.
