A PS5 restock will be taking place at participating GameStop stores on December 17, however, the full list of locations has not yet been revealed. What we do know, however, is that the PS5 restock event will be starting as soon as GameStop’s doors are open (usually 8am local time).
According to various reliable sources, a small amount of PS5 bundles will be available (60 is the estimate) at several storefronts, but you’ll need to be on it in order to walk away with one. Matt Swider broke the news by snapping a photo of a sign confirming the information inside a GameStop store. It’s on a first-come and first-served basis, so slow and steady doesn’t win this race.
As with many PS5 restocks happening in-store, lines are expected to be long, and PS5 stock is far from guaranteed, so our best advice is to rock up as early as possible. These bundles are likely to be packed in with some of the best PS5 accessories (such as the best PS5 headsets) and best PS5 games.
If you’ve had your eye on standalone PS5 restocks, however, then Amazon is reportedly planning Amazon Prime members-only priority drops from now until the end of the month. The world’s largest online retailer has been very quiet for the past month when it comes to PS5 stock drops, so it stands to reason that there could be a surplus ready to go before Christmas. This is according to credible source @Wario64 on Twitter:
