To update: GameStop is now out of consoles. However, a Walmart PS5 restock has been confirmed for Cyber Monday. Be sure to follow our PS5 restocking and Xbox Series X hubs for news on the next update. Plus, follow our coverage of Cyber Monday deals for any surprise refills.
GameStop has been offering a wide range of Black Friday deals this week, but has saved its best promotion for Thanksgiving. While technically not a deal, GameStop is hosting a PS5 restock and Xbox Series X restock in store today from 5pm to 9pm.
This drop in the store was confirmed via Twitter and it comes after a publication not so cryptic Earlier in the week, next-gen console launches would take place this week. We originally expected these restockings to take place on Black Friday itself, but it appears GameStop has decided that the ideal Thanksgiving gift is the chance to queue outside a physical retail store.
Some GameStop stores will open later today AND will have a limited number of PS5, Xbox Series X, and Switch console bundles in stock. Find a participating store near you: https://t.co/bCcE24aYrz pic.twitter.com/Bs9pwumLcsNovember 25, 2021
GameStop has confirmed that this launch will only take place in “select stores”, and you can use your website tool to locate your nearest store with stock. It appears that both the PS5 restocking and the Xbox Series X restocking will be taking place simultaneously with inventory being delivered starting at 5pm ET. The restocking will last until 9pm ET, although we expect the retailer’s allocation to sell out long before that date.
If the PS5 or Xbox Series X opportunity weren’t enough, GameStop will also have limited stock of the Nintendo Switch Black Friday bundle. This $ 299 bundle comes with a Switch console, a digital copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and three months of Nintendo Switch Online. This package was previously available online from companies like Best Buy, Walmart, and Amazon, but has since sold out.
GameStop’s last chance to buy a next-gen console comes at the perfect time. Right now, there’s an attractive range of PS5 Black Friday deals, Xbox Series X Black Friday deals, and Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals running across multiple retailers. These offers give you the opportunity to obtain a wide range of games and accessories for these consoles in demand at significantly reduced prices.
If you can’t secure a next-gen console at today’s GameStop restock, be sure to bookmark our PS5 and Xbox Series X restock centers for the latest updates during the holiday season. We can’t guarantee that they will get you a machine, but they will certainly make the job of tracking a refill much easier.
