Update 06:46: Our store scans now do not return any inventory of Digital Edition or Disc Console, so at the PS5 Target restocking meeting, we now call them all out of stock.
Target’s long-rumored PS5 price cut was released at 5:30-6:15 a.m. EST for the main disc version, but it is now sold out. Followed by the Digital Edition stock, the stock is effective from 6:25-6:40 AM Eastern Time, but the duration is significantly reduced.
It shows that Target has more PS5 inventory on popular major consoles and less attention to the digital version of PS5.
However, if you missed the latest PS5 stock announcement, you may still be lucky this week. On weekdays, there are usually long lines on the Sony website, so if you want to supplement Sony Direct PS5, you may be lucky this week.
Although the PS5̵
According to a report from the video game website Spiel Times, Target has been notified of PS5 restocking shipments, and the estimated timetable is December 27-29. This means that the window has shrunk to tomorrow.
The stock will enter the store earlier this week, and although it has reached the last minute, this decline has already occurred.
The source of “Spiel Times” seems to be accurate, and the details in the report are also very detailed: the revenue of certain areas may exceed other areas, and this is what we are seeing now.
When PS5 replenishment appears…
The only good news is that retailers are providing large amounts of inventory to prevent their sites from crashing due to heavy loads at some point-which may also explain why Target fell earlier.
Spiel Times recommends 3 am to 7 am as the key time for the PS5 stock to fall (it turns out that this is true), which is what we have experienced in the past.
The previous Tweet from The Peak Times in early December last year is also worth remembering:

PS5 inventory drops will only be picked up in the store without a temporary order (to avoid PS5 console messages causing Covid’s attractive stampede), so you will order online and buy time at a specific store.
The key to these PS5 replenishment drops is to make the checkout process as smooth as possible-you can usually add them to the shopping cart, but click once per second, which actually reduces the chance of getting it once.
Should you buy a PS5?
PS5 is equipped with a revolutionary new DualSense controller and can play 4K games at 120fps. It is also backward compatible with all the best PS4 games, so you can revisit some classic games and take away your existing database.
More importantly, the PS5 game selection is already very good. Games such as Demon’s Souls and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales are indispensable and carry on Sony’s tradition of creating unparalleled and compelling exclusive products.
