All eyes are on Walmart PS5 restock today, Thursday, March 4 in the US, and our PS5 restock Twitter tracker is ready for the moment the Sony console is back in stock. Last week, the American retailer had Xbox restock on Thursday at 3pm EST, so we’re expecting the same for the PS5 this week.

🚨 PS5 restock – they’re both live now!!!!! 🥳 ♻️ RT + follow @mattswider + @techradar (can I get to 70,000 followers this weekend?!) ❤️ All versions ($399+): https://t.co/B6Pgt2XRRr https://t.co/Wprfgyojjo pic.twitter.com/KlVlh3x1bsFebruary 26, 2021
We sent out an instant alert about the Amazon PS5 restock via our Twitter tracker, and we plan to do the same for Walmart today. Amazon on Wednesday had the console in stock – it had been 15 days since the retailer had new PS5 stock and it’s the easiest retailer to check out from, so it went out of stock in about two minutes.
March 4 may have Walmart and GameStop as strong possibilities for a restock. Best Buy has offered new stock on the last two Fridays, so it may repeat itself on March 5.
Remember, the time and date for restock is never truly known. These big box stores in America do gravitate toward launching new stock during the same time window, though, according to our PS5 restock Twitter tracker.
PS5 restock stores in the US
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.
When is PS5 restock in the US?
No, we don’t know the exact date and time of the next PS5 restock. But retailers do generally pick the same time for so-called “PS5 drops”. Target likes to surprise us all with 5am-9am restocks (last week 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 last 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.
Happy ending to this PS5 story. Happy to play a part.❤️ https://t.co/WhtMOS2putFebruary 25, 2021
Through Twitter, we’re tracking the next PS5 stock from more than 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 for Saturday, there may be a PS5 drop any one of the days in the upcoming week.
