Last month, GameStop began experimenting with weekend PS5 restocks. And it looks like the retailer is happy with the results, as it’s holding another one today (May 28) right in the middle of its Memorial Day sales.
Details of this GameStop PS5 stock drop come via Matt Swider (opens in a new tab) shortcut (opens in a new tab). Matt is one of the most respected stock trackers with highly trusted sources at virtually every major retailer. He was able to confirm through his GameStop contacts that the retailer will be holding an in-store PS5 restock this weekend.
This in-store replenishment event will begin at each individual store’s opening time (which could be as early as 8 a.m. local time). Matt was able to confirm that only the PS5 Disc console will be available during this drop and on average each location will have around eight consoles available for sale – although some major stores are expected to have more.
Additionally, this PS5 restock will require you to be a PowerUp Reward Pro member. GameStop has locked all of its next-gen console restocks behind its premium membership program since early 2021, and we expect the retailer to continue this practice for the foreseeable future. You can sign up below ahead of its next PS5 restock this weekend.
GameStop has also been known to sell its allocation of PS5 consoles in pre-built bundles and this restock will continue that trend. Three packs will be available during this in-store event. The cheapest will cost $718 while the other two will cost $812. All three come with a PS5 Disc console, an additional DualSense controller, and a copy of Gran Turismo 7, as well as additional items that differ by pack.
The $718 bundle includes a physical copy of Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart and a $25 PlayStation Network gift card. While the $812 packages both come with an official Sony Pulse 3D wireless headset and then a copy of MLB The Show 22 or Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut. While neither of these bundles are the cheapest way to score a PS5, at least GameStop still charges the combined retail price of the items, so you don’t get price gouging.
If you’d rather buy your console online or don’t want to stretch your budget to cover an expensive GameStop bundle, be sure to check out our PS5 restock hub. This comprehensive guide is updated daily with the latest updates from all major retailers.
