At the time of writing, the GAME website lists 29 different PS5 purchase options that have a February 18, 2022 release date.
This includes standalone PS5 Disc and Digital consoles as well as a range of bundles.
The bundles come with accessories, a PS Plus subscription, and games like Spider-Man Miles Morales, Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart, and Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut.
For any parents trying to buy a PS5 as a gift at the next restock, there is one thing to keep in mind. If you are unfamiliar with how the PS5 works, you should know that physical games cannot be used with the PS5 digital console. So if you’re trying to get a PS5 digital console as a gift, don’t try to add disc games to your cart as well.
If you’ve never tried to buy a PS5 with a GAME stock drop, there are a few other things to keep in mind.
It’s best to tackle a GAME PS5 restock on multiple fronts, so if you’re able to try logging into the GAME website on multiple devices – so your phone, laptop, and/or tablet.
Additionally, standalone PS5 consoles tend to sell out the fastest, so your best bet is to try and buy one of the bundles if you want a better chance of securing stock.
And finally, with past PS5 GAME restocks, customers have reported that they have had more fun using guest checkout instead of logging in with their GAME account. This can help speed up the process, which is crucial given how quickly PS5 restocks have sold out in the past.
