Update: Target is now sold out of the PS5. Check our PS5 restock hub for the latest stock information. If you missed this drop, Sony Direct is confirmed for a restock tomorrow (June 17). 

Target hasn't had a PS5 restock since May 27, but that's all changed today as the console is currently live at the red retailer. But it won't be for long. 

You'll need to be quick if you want to get a console as stock will almost certainly sell out in moments. This is the retailer's first restock in several weeks, so don't let this opportunity to secure a console slip away. This restock is for both the disc and digital editions of the console, though the latter appears to be sold out now.

Sony's PS5 is one of the most in-demand products in the world right now. For good reason. Packing the ability to play games in 4K at 60 fps it's a true next-gen experience. Target currently has the PS5 in stock. 

PS5 Digital Edition: $399 @ Target

When Target does restock it typically does so between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. ET, so keep an eye on the retailer's site during those hours. The console is likely to sell out in minutes so you'll need to be fast and have a slice of good fortune on your side as well. Consult the buying advice below for some handy tips that could tip the odds in your favor. 

The all-digital model of the PS5 is even harder to get hold of than the standard version right now, with several recent restocks at major retailers solely containing the PS5 Disc Edition. However, this drop from Target included both versions of the console, which is perhaps a good sign that the digital model will be easier to get hold of in the coming weeks. 

To make sure you don't miss out on the stock drop, we’re tracking PS5 restocks not just at Target but also at every major retailer. Make sure to bookmark our where to buy a PS5 guide for the latest stock information as we get it.

How to buy a PS5 at Target

Firstly, ensure you have an account set up with your payment and address details stored. This is a vital step if you want to secure a PS5 during a restock. Getting stock in your basket is only half the battle, you don’t want the console to sell out while you’re entering your details. Make sure it’s all pre-saved so you can checkout in seconds. 

Target is known for releasing stock in waves, typically going first with the PS5 standard edition and then following it up with a restock of the PS5 Digital edition. So even if you get on the retailer and the PS5 is already sold out, it’s worth sparing the extra time to see if you can catch a second wave. 

Jake Randall also suggests using alternative payment methods such as PayPal, Apple Pay, or RedCard if possible. The advantage with these is that they use a separate payment portal which bypasses Target’s own servers which have in the past collapsed under the strain of thousands of people all trying to secure that coveted order confirmation email. 

Target also has an app that can be used to try and secure a PS5. A good trick is to try and checkout during a restock on both a desktop and a mobile device. It’s recommended that if you manage to add the PS5 to your cart on one, you switch over to the other to complete checkout. So long as you’re logged in it’ll keep track of the content of your cart.

Finally, at checkout, you can edit your location to select a store that has PS5 in stock if your local is sold out. Occasionally doing this might stop you from progressing further through the checkout process, but if you encounter this issue just clear your browser cookies and give it a second try.
