A PS5 restock insider has revealed when the next drop at Target will be. On Aug. 25, retailers like GameStop, Amazon, Walmart, and more released PS5 and Xbox Series X stocks.

Fans are now eyeing two major retailers, Target and Best Buy. There is no word when the next PS5 restock on Best Buy will be, but there is leaked information about when the next console restocks at Target will happen.

PS5 Restock at Target

Jake Randall, a known insider, posted about the restock on Twitter. He said Target stores in the United States have received up to 20 consoles, which is more than normal and thus should provide a great restock.

Randall first relayed the information on Aug. 25. At the time, he stated that the restock would either happen on Aug. 26 or Aug. 27.

Randall tweeted that Target is known to drop stocks between 6:00 A.M. and 9:00 A.M. Eastern Standard Time every single time this year.

According to GamesRadar, the earliest drop was 6:15 A.M. Eastern Standard Time, and the latest was 8:55 A.M. Eastern Standard Time.

However, Target drops PS5 stocks between 7:00 A.M. and 8:00 A.M. Eastern Standard Time, the most common time.

Adding to this, he noted that only the $500 bundled one has been confirmed. This means that if you want to purchase the stand-alone $400, you may have to wait a bit longer because they are far harder to purchase as the demand for them are higher.

All of that said, Randall added that everything should be taken with a grain of salt because even though his leaks were proven reliable in the past, it is possible that there can be changes last minute.

Even if what Randall tweeted turns out to be correct, it is still subject to change.

PS5 Restock Tips

Major retailers are expected to drop several PS5 stocks until the end of the month, which means you have a lot of chances to get one for yourself.

If you wish to get your hands on a PS5 console, there are some tips and rules to bear in mind. First, you must be patient when trying to purchase the console.

Retailers usually drop stocks in waves, so not getting in during a wave and securing a console right away does not mean that you can't try again. You can stick around and get another chance when the next wave is dropped.

Also, signing in and having your payment details saved and ready is important. It helps avoid any holdups from happening, according to ComicBook.

It also prevents you from avoiding sudden glitches normally caused by the weight of online traffic that could decrease your chances of getting a console.

Having your details ready is also more convenient because you won't have to keep typing it in whenever you purchase a console.

Finally, do not pay over the odds. Normal PS5 consoles cost around $499.99, while the Digital Edition costs $399.99. Scalpers would normally offer the consoles at a much higher price. It is best to get the console from a legit retailer near you.

If you purchase the console from legit retailers, you can use the extra money to purchase games and other PS5 accessories.
