GameStop confirms massive PS5 stock release TODAY!

It looks like good news for people wanting the PS5 in the US. The Sony console is being restocked more frequently these days, with gaming giant retailer GameStop putting out frequent PS5 stock either weekly or fortnightly. And today, they've announced that there will be PS5 consoles available around their US stores, to all PowerUp Rewards Pro members (opens in new tab).

A membership will cost you around $15, and you'll not only get the chance to get a PS5 in store, but also benefit from boosted trade-in credit and other exclusive offers. This is becoming a theme with GameStop, so does that mean that PS5 stock will finally be easy to get hold of? 

We wouldn't count on it, just yet. Even though PS5 sales have been more frequent over the last few months, that stock is being snapped up in super-quick time (seconds and minutes, not hours and days). So this is a move in the right direction, but we're still far from the PS5 availability that we'd all want. For more recent news, check out our dedicated PS5 restock page.

If you can't make the GameStop stores in person, or you'd rather not sign up to their PowerUp Rewards Pro membership, check out Sony's offering of a chance to get the console through its PlayStation Direct. That includes Europe as well as the US, so it's well worth a look.
