Sony’s hard-to-find PlayStation 5 console could be returning to store shelves as early as today.
According to Spiel Times, a number of Target employees have said that the PS5 will be back in stock at Target sometime between Sunday the 27th and Tuesday the 29th. It seems likely that this will not happen today since restocking at the retailer typically occurs in the early hours of the morning.
This means that—if reports are correct—the PS5 could be available to purchase either tomorrow or Tuesday morning, with restocking occurring typically between 5am and 7am.
This will vary according to locale, and all units will only be available online to purchase for delivery or store pickup. You won’t find a PS5 on store shelves for quite some time, thanks to both scarcity and the COVID-19 pandemic.
You’ll want to be logged into your Target account with a payment method saved and ready to go. If restocking does occur in the wee hours of the morning, you’ll want to get up early just in case.
Note: This is not a guarantee. This news has not been officially confirmed by either Sony or Target. It’s a chance and a chance only at getting your hands on a PS5.
But remember: Unless you’re dying to play Demon’s Souls, there’s not really any compelling reason to buy a PS5 right now (or an Xbox Series X).

The fact is, there just aren’t that many next-gen exclusives out there to play. Almost everything, including Spider-Man: Miles Morales, can be played on last-gen consoles still. That will change in 2021, but we suspect it will become much easier to find these consoles in the new year (not right away, of course).
Still, best of luck to you. And whatever you do, please don’t buy price-gouged systems from scalpers on eBay or other reseller sites. The PS5 is a fine console. It’s worth the MSRP and not a penny more.
