PS5 from GameStop on sale today 20 April

PS5 Standard will be available for purchase from GameStop this afternoon, Wednesday April 20, 2022. As usual, the units on sale will be limited, with the actual availability of the console to be announced during a Twitch stream. Below you will find all the details on timetables, how to buy PS5 and the details of the proposed bundle.

According to the information shared by GameStop, the standard PS5 bundle of 20 April 2022 will present the same contents as that of last week, therefore will include PS5 Standard, a second Dualsense in Starlight Blue color, Sony's official multimedia remote control and three PS5 games, namely Demon's Soul Remake, Uncharted Collection: Legacy of Thieves and Tales of Arise, all priced at € 699.98 . The purchase is reserved exclusively for GS + owners and limited to one console per customer.

The bundles will go on sale during the second part of today's episode of GameStop Italia's Twitch channel which will start at 16:00 and should last approximately two hours. The availability will be communicated live, so the advice is to follow the livestream from the beginning, ready to proceed with the order on the GameStop website as soon as possible.

PS5 is the new Sony gaming console, launched in November 2020. It is available in two versions: the Standard Edition (499.99 euros), or the one included in today's GameStop bundle, and the Digital Edition (399.99 euros) without a physical Blu-Ray player and therefore only compatible with the contents digital. The console is equipped with a 10.28 TFLOPs AMD Radeon RDNA (Radeon DNA) GPU and an 8 core / 16 thread x86-64-AMD Ryzen Zen2 CPU. PS5 is backwards compatible with 99% of PS4 games, many of which have technical improvements on the new console.

GameStop PS5 restock sold out — where to find inventory next

Update: GameStop is now sold out of PS5 consoles. Make sure to follow our PS5 restock guide for news on the next console drop. (A Target PS5 restock could happen next week).

An in-store GameStop PS5 restock is happening today (Saturday). This is the first time the retailer has restocked the PS5 outside of the working week. 

News of this restock comes from Matt Swider of The Shortcut. Matt is one of the most trusted stock trackers around, with reliable sources across practically all major retailers. Multiple GameStop sources have confirmed to him that an in-store PS5 drop is set to be held on Saturday, April 2. 

GameStop typically holds in-store restocks on Fridays, but has delayed things by 24 hours in this instance. The reason for this unexpected weekend drop according to a GameStop insider is because 'no one will believe we are selling PS5s on April fools day' (that's a genuine quote, claims Swider). 

This in-store restock will start from each individual store opening time (which could be as early as 8 a.m. local time) — but expect the most keen shoppers to start queuing before then.

As is now standard with GameStop restocks, the retailer will only offer the console in pre built bundles and you'll need to be a PowerUp Reward Pro member in order to secure one. Swider reports there will be four bundles available during this GameStop PS5 restock, two that include the standard PS5 and two that include the PS5 Digital Edition.  

The cheapest bundle will cost $630 while the most expensive package will retail for $730. While a GameStop bundle is certainly not the cheapest way to score a PS5, at least GameStop always charges the combined retail price of the items within its bundles, so you won’t be getting price gouged.

It appears that almost all of GameStop’s 3,000+ U.S. locations will be involved in this restock. In the past some restocks have been limited to as little as three stores. We don’t have a definitive list of which stores will have stock just yet, but we’re expecting to get that news prior to consoles going on sale tomorrow morning. 

The demand for the PS5 has abated somewhat, so you likely won’t need to go to extreme measures like camping out but we still recommend arriving ahead of opening if you desperately want a console. 

If you'd rather purchase your console online or don't want to stretch your budget to cover a pricey GameStop bundle, be sure to check our PS5 restock hub. This comprehensive guide is updated daily with the latest updates across all major retailers.
