It’s Wednesday, which has proven a bountiful day for PS5 restocks in the past, and so hopefully that tradition continues. There’s already a way for hopeful US and UK customers to register their interest in buying a PS5 direct from Sony, as detailed in yesterday’s update, and now retailers appear to be preparing for new drops this week. Get all the info in this PSLS PS5 Restock Update for January 19, 2022.
Which US stores have PS5 stock for today, January 19?
US PS5 Console Restock Update
For today, January 19, 2022, the best place to buy a PS5 in the US is BJs. There’s currently a bundle available that includes the PS5 disc version, an extra wireless controller, and Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart for $639.99. Purchase it here. Note: This product is only available to members, so you’ll need to sign up or sign in first.
In case you missed it yesterday, PSN members in the US, UK, Germany, France, Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg can register here to show their interest in buying a PS5 directly from PlayStation.com. Make sure you have notifications on for your PSN account, as that will be a message that you won’t want to miss!
Ebay is also another option. While there are hundreds of listings from greedy folks charging ridiculous amounts for the next-gen Sony console, some better deals can be found. Sort by “Buy It Now” and “Newly Listed” to find the best deals. It’s also worth using a price limit to stop any scalper listings from showing up.
GameStop may also be having an online drop this week. Reputable tracker @PS5restocks_etc reports that GameStop tweeted about PS5s on Monday. However, that tweet has since been deleted.
