Trust and credibility
PS5 restock tracker Matt Swider has helped 58,000 people in the US buy a next-gen console in 2021 with his tireless 24/7 tracking, in-stock Twitter alerts and exclusive restock reporting.
The Sony Direct PS5 restock tomorrow, July 20, is this week’s first confirmed restock date and time in the US to buy the Sony PlayStation console, according to our 24/7 PS5 restock Twitter tracker Matt Swider who will send you an alert when the PS5 is in stock this week – if you follow his account and turn on notifications. So far, the PS5 restock tomorrow is exclusive to PSN account holders who received an email invite from Sony (it happens randomly), but we’ll update you in case the Sony Direct virtual queue opens up to everyone at a later time.
► When? Follow our PS5 restock Twitter tracker Matt Swider and turn on notifications for restock news. It’s the fastest way to get PS5 restock updates.
► Don’t buy from other Twitter users – which are all scams. Only buy from the US stores Matt alerts you about. No one will legitimate sell a PS5 for just $550.

The Sony Direct PS5 restock has been confirmed for tomorrow, July 20 at 3pm EDT / 12pm PDT, according to Matt Swider, who has had many followers send him proof of the Sony email invite. Of course that means you may or may not get a chance to buy the PlayStation 5 console, as this email has been crucial to recent Sony Direct restocks.
There was a time that Sony would open up its restock virtual queue to everyone, and 5pm EDT was the most popular time in recent history. If that does happen, Matt will walk you through the Sony Direct virtual queue PS5 buying process with a PS5 restock live stream where you can ask questions.
We also saw a PS5 restock Friday from Sony Direct, so it appears as if there’s more console inventory in July than there was in all of June.
Other PS5 restock today: Will Walmart restock soon?
Sony Direct may not be the only PS5 restock this week. As of today, it’s been over one month since the last Walmart PS5 restock, and most people have now gotten their PS5 Disc or Digital Edition consoles through the US retailer.
That means that the usual Walmart PS5 restock time of 3pm EDT on a Thursday is something we’ll be paying attention to (Thursday at that exact time Walmart has had a restock for most of 2021). Look out for our Twitter alert for both Sony Direct and Walmart if orders begin opening up and that add-to-cart button goes live. There’s no word on a Best Buy PS5 restock this week, though there will be Best Buy in-store RTX GPU stock tomorrow, July 20, in the morning time.
While Sony Direct is having a second restock in two weeks and the Nintendo Switch OLED pre-orders in the US has been easier to get, we expect both consoles and Xbox Series X restock opportunities to continue to be difficult for online stores to manage. Why? Because in the lead-up to Black Friday and Cyber Monday in the US, everyone will want to buy a console and Sony and other manufacturers won’t be able to keep up with demand.
