PS5 restock: how to track the new console stock on Twitter – and get it fast

If you're looking for a PS5 restock Twitter tracker this weekend, we've found success in helping people get the new Sony console from stores like Target, Best Buy, and Walmart as soon as it comes back in stock. That said, new PS5 stock over the weekend – especially on Saturday – is rare.

Miss it? Follow our PS5 restock Twitter tracker to receive alerts. It's the fastest way to get real-time updates of console stock. It'll look something like this:

Again, the weekend is slow for video game console restock. Retailers in the US give us a break from constantly checking their stores for new stock. However, we will still send out alerts if something crosses our tracker.

We've been getting the Twitter restock alerts out there faster than PS5 restock apps, – and we're doing this for free. Of course, you'll still need to be fast to buy the Sony console. For example, the PS5 restock at Target sold out in less than 15 minutes. We saw something similar with the Xbox restock at the same time.

PS5 restock stores in the US

No, we don't know the date and time of the next PS5 restock. However, retailers are generally picking the same time for so-called "PS5 drops". Target likes to surprise us all with 5am-9am restocks (last time was 8am), while Amazon does it at 3am EST (their midnight in PST). Sony Direct tends to pick anywhere from 5pm-7pm EST, although it's been earlier in the past. Best Buy and Walmart have chosen midday before.

It's all quite random, which can be maddening as someone who wants to buy a PS5. Remember, 15 minutes to checkout sounds like a long time, but store websites often crash (Walmart, Costco and GameStop), or you're made to wait in a virtual queue (Sony Direct and Best Buy). Every store in the US has a different way of going about it. Oftentimes, your best opportunity is to scoop up a PS5 that's been canceled when someone else's credit cards is declined. It pops back into the inventory.

If you missed this this week's PS5 drop, then you can always turn your attention to our real-time updates of new PS5 stock on Twitter. That's where you'll find out about the date and time of the next Sony console drop if it gets announced ahead of time.

Through Twitter, we're tracking the next PS5 stock from 12 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 drop any one of the days this week.
