PS5 stock, Where and When available in USA?

The Sony PlayStation 5 console -- and the Xbox Series X, for that matter -- are still hard to find, and you can thank the ongoing global chip shortage and increased demand for the PS5 and other electronics.

Luckily, PS5 and Xbox Series X restocks seem to be much more commonplace-- and Walmart has a big one coming up.

Walmart has announced a PS5 restock as part of its Walmart+ Weekend sale starting June 2.  The supply will be limited to Walmart+ members ($12.95 per month), so you'll need to join before the event to secure a PlayStation 5 during the restock.

This members-only approach is becoming more common.  Amazon Prime members often receive priority during PS5 drops, and best Buy gave its Best Buy Total tech members priority access during its last restock.

So, if you want a higher chance of securing a PlayStation 5 console, your best bet these days might be to sign up for one of these services.

If you want to buy a PS5 now -- like, right this very moment -- the best place to get one is StockX.  Though the site is a third-party reseller, StockX authenticates PlayStation 5 consoles and offers some of the best third-party pricing.  Note, however, that you'll have to pay a $200 premium or more over the console's MSRP to buy one there.

You may still be able to get a PS5 console at Best Buy, Walmart, or GameStop, even if you're not willing to drop your hard-earned cash on a premium membership or third-party reseller offering.  Your luck depends on frequently checking for the latest PlayStation 5 restock news and tapping those "check stock now" buttons to get lucky.
