As of 5:35 p.m. ET, it appears there will be no extra PS5 restock for the general public. Sony’s invite-only restock is done and there are no additional consoles available. But as we’ve stated before, Walmart will have stock for Walmart Plus members on Wednesday. Plus, you can still register for Sony’s next invite-only restock via the link below.

It’s now been over an hour since Sony started its invite-only restock. So far, there are no signs of another restock today, but we’ll remain vigilant through the next few hours. Otherwise, your next best bet will be the Walmart PS5 restock planned for Wednesday afternoon. Wednesday’s drop will be for Walmart Plus members only. (You can sign up at Walmart via this link).

Sony’s console drop will continue for the next hour or so. In the meantime, I noticed there’s a solid video game sale happening today at Best Buy. The sale takes up to $25 off a wide range of titles including some must-have games like Returnal, Ratchet & Clank, and Marvel’s Avengers. It’s very similar to the Black Friday prices we saw just last month, so if you missed that sale — now is still a great time to stock up on new titles. After discount, prices start from $14.99.

PS5 consoles are now live for those who received an invite from Sony. (Remember, you can still register for future console drops, although it’s not guaranteed you’ll receive an invite). Sony’s invite-only restocks are sometimes followed by a restock that’s open to the general public. The public restock usually happens around 5 p.m. ET. Should Sony open a virtual queue for the general public, we’ll be the first to notify you. (But don’t get your hopes up too high because we haven’t seen this happen for quite some time). Either way — we’ll post again to let you know when the restock is over.

Today’s Sony Direct invite-only PS5 restock is less than an hour away. If you’re currently without an invitation then, unfortunately, it’s highly likely that you haven’t been selected for this drop. 

To avoid further disappointment, ensure that you’re registered so the next time Sony Direct is sending out invitations your name is in the hat. It’s completely free to register and takes literally just a few seconds. All you need is an active PSN account, and you’re good to go. Do it now!

The next PS5 restock has been confirmed. Sony Direct sat out both Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but the retailer’s unusually lengthy PS5 restock drought is about to end as Sony Direct will be holding a PS5 restock at 2 p.m. ET today (December 7).

Once the restock has begun you will be able to join the virtual queue to get the PS5 for $499 via this link or the PS5 Digital for $399 via this link.  This is an invite-only drop so you will need an invitation (delivered via email). If you’d not signed up to receive them, get registered now to be ready for future drops. 

Previous Sony Direct invite-only restocks have been followed by an open drop, usually at around 7 p.m. ET, but that’s not guaranteed today. Some past Sony Direct PS5 restocks have been exclusively for invitation holders only. We’ll update once we know more.
