A PS5 restock will happen at Sony's PlayStation Direct today (Update: Sold out)

Back to waiting for another shot.


Don't give up yet.

PlayStation Direct, Sony's online store dedicated to PlayStation products, restocked its PS5 and PS5 Digital consoles Thursday according to emails sent out to those randomly selected to gain early access to the store. The restock started at 12 p.m. PT (3 p.m. ET) for the lucky few who received the email. Typically, PlayStation Direct opens up to everyone 2 hours after, but that didn't happen Wednesday. It appears Sony only had enough PS5s for those who received invites, and sold out. 

If you want an early access email, you'll need a PlayStation Network ID and to be signed up for marketing emails from Sony. You can read more about the PlayStation Direct and other PS5 restocks here
