PS5 Restock Updates: Check PS5 Stock At GameStop, Walmart, Best Buy, Target, And Amazon

Update: A Walmart Canada PS5 restock is in progress after it kicked off at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET–as of 11:15 AM ET the site is currently experiencing a high amount of traffic and not loading right away.


Despite recent PS5 restocks at stores like Walmart and GameStop, including ones on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it’s been frustratingly difficult to find a PS5 or PS5 Digital available to buy directly from a major retailer for many months now. Now that we’re officially in December and Christmas is just weeks away, it makes sense to wonder when stores like Walmart, GameStop, Target, and Best Buy will have more PS5 units available for shoppers. A tweet from Sony confirmed that “more inventory will be coming to retailers before the end of the year,” but that doesn’t make the scramble to get your hands on a PS5 console any

Sorry, you could get less money in a second stimulus check. Here’s what we know

When it comes to stimulus checks, the good news is that your total payment could go up. But if Congress can meet in the middle and pass a rescue package that funds another direct payment, your personal total could also go down. And in some cases, you might not get another round at all. In fact, a second stimulus check isn’t a given at all.

No, you’re not losing your grip. This is complicated stuff, from the detailed rules of qualifications to the way the IRS calculates your total sum. We even built a tool to help you estimate the size of your next check, but until the requirements are crystallized in another bill, there still may be some uncertainty over the amount your household can

Nintendo Switch bundle in stock on Black Friday? How to check at Best Buy, Amazon and Walmart

This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2020, CNET’s gift picks with expert advice, reviews and recommendations for the latest tech gifts for you and your family.

The new Nintendo Switch Mario Kart Black Friday bundle is as tricky to get hold of as the Xbox Series X and PS5 — and it’s only been available for a few days. We’re keeping our eyes on the major retailers’ sales and will update this page if we see a deal become available. 

Check the links here to see if the bundle is in stock at major vendors. But be warned: If you spot it, you’ll want to act fast — for example, Walmart’s online “availability window” for this bundle sold out in less than a minute on Wednesday.

Fact check: Technology will be used to support ‘proactive vigilance’ of COVID-19 vaccination

A screenshot of a contract award notice has been shared by social media users with the claim that it is evidence that the UK government knows COVID-19 vaccines are going to be dangerous. This is false. The UK’s Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency says it does not anticipate any specific safety concerns from the new vaccines, based on reports from clinical trials.

Examples of the claim can be seen here and here . It also formed the basis of an article published by Natural News here , a website that promotes anti-vaccine narratives (here).

The article said the contract award notice was evidence that: “even the UK’s MHRA realizes the covid-19 vaccines are going to be extremely dangerous to the public, generating a catastrophic wave of adverse reactions and deadly side effects” (here).

This misinformation stems from a real contract award notice from the UK’s

Missed the deadline to claim your stimulus money in 2020? You still have an option left.


Sarah Tew/CNET

The IRS deadline to register a claim for a missing stimulus payment this year has now expired, but you can still file a request to get your missing check — you just have to wait until 2021 to receive up to $1,200 per qualified adult for the first payment the IRS sent in April.

We’ll show you how to figure out if you’re part of a group that could still be eligible for a full or catch-up payment. This is separate from a potential second stimulus check, which Congress is still weighing as part of another economic stimulus package amid increased pressure to ramp up negotiations and pass a new bill. (If a second check is approved, you might get it faster if you do these things now.)
