Today is a big day for Playstation 5 restocks.
More from Variety
The coveted Sony console is currently back available on Best Buy, after months of selling out on dozens of online retailers. Because of high demand, Best Buy is requiring users to create an account in order to reserve a spot in line.
Unlike other restocks, the console isn’t bundled with additional items. Instead, the PS5 ($499.99) is sold alone, alongside a DualSense controller, which means customers won’t be pulled into spending more money.
The Best Buy drop follows Walmart’s anticipated restock last week, in which the mega-retailer also had users join a waitlist for either the PS5 disc game console or digital edition, before re-releasing the devices at up-marked prices.
If you don’t catch the restock from Best Buy in time, GameStop is offering a bundle deal on their Playstation 4, which includes the slim console, in addition to an extra DualSense controller and three games: “Borderland 3,” “Just Cause 4” and “Fallout 76.”
GameStop is also due for a fresh order on the PS5 soon, though. In the past, their restocks have been exclusive to Power Up Rewards Pro members, meaning it might be worth it to invest in a Pro membership for $15 a month to get immediate access. The membership includes perks like a Game Informer subscription, a $5 reward coupons per month and a 10% extra trade credit on games and accessories.
