This week is finally starting to heat up when it comes to PS5 restocks. Both Walmart and GameStop are reportedly going to have big PS5 drops. There will be chances for people to buy the next-gen console online and in stores. For those who didn’t manage to nab one of the hundreds of systems last week, the next couple of days may be your time. At the very least, there shouldn’t be as many people competing for stock and taking websites down! Fingers crossed that this week is your week. Here is the PSLS PS5 Restock Update for January 12, 2022.
Which US stores have PS5 stock for today, January 12?
US PS5 Console Restock Update
For today, January 12, 2022, Ebay is going to be the place to visit for PS5s that are in stock right now. Users will want to filter by “Buy It Now” and “Newly Listed” to find the latest deals. The use of a price limit is also recommended, as it helps filter out the unreasonably high scalper pricing.
Update 2: The bundle at BJs.com is now out of stock.
Though Ebay is the best bet for today, both Walmart and GameStop should have stock in the coming days. Walmart will reportedly have PS5 stock on January 13. Both disc and Digital Editions will be available online. As for GameStop, it will have the PS5 available in “select stores” on January 14.
- Target – Drop occurred on January 6
- Walmart – Restock online on January 13
- Amazon – Restock not yet announced
- Best Buy – Surprise drop occurred on January 5
- GameStop – Restock at stores due January 14
Last week’s Target and Best Buy restock news was big, but it looks like it’s going to be overshadowed by big drops from Walmart and GameStop scheduled for this Thursday and Friday. Stay tuned!

Which UK stores have PS5 stock for today, January 12?
Like yesterday, the best place to get UK PS5 stock is the BT shop. However, that offer is only available to BT Broadband customers.
Those with a BT Broadband account can head here to check out the PS5 and PS Plus bundle for £498.99. There is also the PS5 and extra controller bundle for £508.99. The PS5, extra controller, and headset bundle is also in stock for £598.98.
For non-BT customers, Ebay is the next best bet. At the time of publishing, the best PS5 deals on Ebay are selling at around £80-100 above RRP. Most of these deals are listed as “Used” or “Refurbished.” Depending on when they were purchased, these could be reasonably new. A fair few folks could be selling off their unwanted Christmas gifts!
For those who are considering buying used, it’s always worth asking the seller about the warranty status and if the PS5 has been opened up at all. If the PS5 has been opened, the internals could have been compromised.
Remember to search listings using “Buy It Now” and “Newly Listed” to filter through to the latest posts. Accompany this with a maximum price cap to find the best deals and avoid scalpers’ inflated pricing. Searching by “Collection Only” can also result in some great deals, for those who happen to live nearby.
If the BT shop and Ebay deals aren’t good enough, there are rumors swirling about potential UK PS5 stock coming to GAME soon. This post will be updated with the latest developments there.
As always, this PSLS PS5 Restock Update post will be updated as the day goes on, to give our readers the best chance of getting their hands on new PS5 stock.
