The Sony Rewards Store had PS5 consoles available for sale last week. While all of the consoles have since sold out, other retailers have had PS5 consoles in stock as well, which could indicate more inventory coming soon across various retailers. (Make sure to follow our where to buy PS5 guide for the latest updates). 

There's also the chance that the Sony Rewards Store might have another PS5 restock event down the line. So if you haven't already, it's a good idea to sign up for a Sony Rewards account. All you need to do is sign in with the same email address for your PlayStation account to get started.

The Sony Rewards Store had PS5 restock earlier. Only a limited number of consoles were available and they have all sold out. 

Some PlayStation fans are also debating on Twitter if Target will see a healthy influx of PS5 units on January 19. While the discussion has been lively, the likeliness of it being a nationwide rollout is unlikely as all evidence points to specific geolocalities.  

At the moment, retailers have not given any definitive statements on when customers can expect mass restocks. Fans have noticed that of all the retailers, Best Buy has been the best in curtailing bots from buying up all supply to then flip on eBay. Regardless, it would be a good idea to check in on our where to buy PS5 hub. We update it multiple times a day with the latest stock.
