The next GameStop PS5 restock will be in select GameStop stores on Friday, October 29. This is the second consecutive GameStop PS5 store restock we have seen. (They just had an in-store replenishment last week).
GameStop has confirmed via its own website that a PS5 in-store replenishment will take place at select stores in Seattle, San Francisco, Detroit, Philadelphia, etc. This drop will be open to the general public, and unlike GameStop’s online drops, it will not have any exclusive benefits for PowerUp Rewards Pro members.
If you’re wondering which stores will have inventory, GameStop has a store locator tool tell you. It looks like it will be a slightly larger PS5 restock with stores in several metropolitan areas offering consoles. There appear to be over 140 stores nationwide that will have inventory. (However, we don’t see any stores in the New York Tri-State area that will offer a restock.)
If you live near a place that will have PS5 consoles, you will need to stock up on coffee and get there ASAP. The stock will be distributed at the normal opening of the store. It could be as early as 8 a.m. local time in some areas.
It is important to note that this PS5 restock will not include standalone consoles for purchase. GameStop has been consolidating its stockpile of next-gen consoles with additional items since launch, and even this in-store replenishment will only have pre-built PS5 packages for sale.
For reference, the bundle offered in the last restock included a PS5 console, Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut, Far Cry 6, a one-year PlayStation subscription, and a $ 50 GameStop gift card. It cost $ 740, which is the all-time combined retail price. It’s definitely a better package than some previous GameStop bundles which were a bit odd.
GameStop isn’t the first retailer to experience an in-store replenishment event. Best Buy held its very first in-store drop last month. It seemed to work reasonably smoothly. However, there were of course more people in line than there were consoles for sale, which led to a few nasty scenes as people scrambled for stock.
If you don’t live in one of the areas affected by this in-store PS5 replenishment, or if you just don’t feel like going to a physical store, be sure to check out our PS5 replenishment center.
