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

As Expected, PS5 And Xbox Series X Feel Like They’ve Tied, For Now

I’ve written a number of articles about how I like this feature or that feature better on PS5 over Xbox Series X, or vice versa. But in the end, after spending close to a month with both new consoles, this is ending where I thought it probably would.

In a tie game, for now.

Simply put, there is not a whole lot to make these two consoles stand out significantly from one another. They’re both just…very good, and very powerful, and if they have problems, they often share them.

While yes, the PS5 has a price advantage with its digital version being $100 cheaper, the vast majority of the extremely limited stock produced is of the $500 disc version, just like there are way more $500 Xbox Series X’s than there are $300 Xbox Series S’s.

For sales, no one really knows the exact figures,

Congratulations on getting yourself a brand-new PlayStation 5! After making all of your friends incredibly jealous, it’s time to dive into everything this next-gen console has to offer. Here are 10 tips and tricks for making the most of your PS5.


1. Avoid screenshot spoilers

The PS5 can hide screenshots sent your way if they show gameplay from beyond the point you’ve reached, or include something flagged by the developer as a potential spoiler. To make sure you’re protected, open Settings from the cog icon in the top right corner of the interface, then choose Saved Data and Game/App Settings, then Spoiler Warnings.


2. Save the DualSense battery

By default, the new DualSense controllers that accompany the PS5 are set to never turn themselves off. If you open up Settings from the cog icon in the top right corner of the main

How Cyberpunk 2077 Cross-Saves Work On PS5 And Xbox Series X/S

Developer CD Projekt Red has outlined the way Cyberpunk 2077 players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One can transfer their saves to their respective next-gen consoles.

PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players who upgrade to the next-gen system in their respective console family can pick up their Cyberpunk 2077 save file on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S / Series X from where they left off when the game drops on December 10. As you’d expect, the process of transferring saves from one console to the other is different for each console family.

Xbox is very simple. Thanks to Smart Delivery, Cyberpunk 2077 players on Xbox One can upload their save to the cloud and simply pick up their file on Xbox Series S / Series X. Similarly, players can connect both consoles to the same network and download their saves via selecting the System Network Transfer option.

PlayStation, on

PS5 and Xbox Series X restock coming to Walmart and other retailers

Two of the holiday season’s most anticipated gifts went on sale earlier this month, with Microsoft rolling out its Xbox Series X|S and Sony debuting the PlayStation 5. The only problem: actually finding one of the $499 consoles in stock. 

As Black Friday beckons, the devices remain hard to find. But there could be some hope for holiday shoppers: Sony vowed in a tweet that more inventory would arrive at retailers before year-end. 

Still, expect the consoles to remain a hot item. Demand was so high for the PlayStation 5, which went on sale

Best Black Friday PS5 And PS4 Accessory Deals: Gaming Headsets, Controllers, And PS Plus

Black Friday 2020 is here, and while this year’s shopping event linked up with the launch of the new PS5 console, there won’t be much in the way of major console gaming hardware deals. It’s been hard enough for many shoppers to even track down a PS5, with the next-gen consoles selling out in minutes after each restock. If you haven’t managed to order one already, Walmart’s big Black Friday sale is already out of stock, so the only other opportunity may be picking up a PS5 at GameStop stores on Black Friday itself, but that means risking a potentially crowded in-person visit–if you do decide to go, please wear a mask to protect your fellow shoppers! If you did manage to secure a PS5 this holiday season, you’ll surely want some accessories to go with it. PS4 and PS5 gaming headsets, controllers, and other accessories are all on sale

PS5 Out Of Stock At Walmart; GameStop Black Friday Restock Coming Later This Week

If you’re a PlayStation fan trying to buy a PS5, you know that in the time since launch day, the PS5 retail situation has been endlessly hectic and frustrating, with the system consistently selling out in a matter of moments, sites crashing, and scalpers cashing in on the situation by hoarding the system and selling them for over $1,000 each. The PS5 launch day restocks were particularly disappointing–many stores restocked and sold out instantly at midnight, and Walmart offered multiple online restocks throughout the day, each of which had slow loading times, site crashes, and errors in checkout. In short, if you’ve been trying to buy a PS5 and haven’t done so yet, you’re not alone, and we feel your pain.

Black Friday 2020 offers another opportunity to buy the PS5 this week, though we don’t expect it to go any more smoothly than previous PS5 restocks. For Black Friday
