The next in-store PS5 restock has been announced. More specifically, GameStop has revealed that it’s following in the footsteps of Best Buy with its first in-store restock of the console. However, the GameStop in-store restock is going to be far more limited than the Best Buy restock. While not every Best Buy store participated in the restock, many, across the whole country, did. GameStop’s in-store restock won’t be nationwide. Rather, it will be limited to stores in these three areas: New York City, Dallas, and Atlanta. At the moment, it’s unclear how large the supply will be, if this will be tried in other regions, or if the $400 all-digital version of the console is included. All we know is it will go down in these three areas on September 30 and be limited to bundles, which is to say there will be no option to buy just the console.
Right now, there’s no word of a similar restock for the Xbox Series X, which is just as difficult to order as the PS5. It’s unclear why the promotion is limited to the PS5. What is also unclear if this is a one-time promotion or something GameStop is going to continue to do going forward. And finally, there’s no word on whether the restock will include the even more elusive all-digital PS5, which retails at $400, $100 cheaper than the $500 standard version that comes with a disc drive.
