Update 8:12AM ET, March 10th: Both the regular PlayStation 5 and Digital Edition have sold out on Target’s site. There is one more confirmed chance to get a PS5 this week at GameStop’s in-store restock happening tomorrow.

Update 8:02AM ET, March 10th: Target has sold out of regular PlayStation 5 consoles for now, in what was one of the smallest and most fleeting restocks we’ve seen of late. However, you may have another chance soon, as the $399.99 PlayStation 5 Digital Edition is up for sale now.

The frequency of new console restocks has been on the downturn but they are still trickling in. If you’re ok with paying a little more and getting a bundle you consistently have more opportunities, though the most sought-after option is a standalone console for its proper price and the most sought-after console still seems to be the PlayStation 5.

Target has another round of PS5 orders opening up this morning for the standard $499.99 disc drive-equipped PlayStation 5. The listing has once again gone live on Target’s website, which indicates that availability should be opening up about now. Target only does store pick-up orders through its website and mobile app for these consoles, so in addition to testing your reflexes on that Add to Cart button you also have to hope that your nearby stores are the ones graced with plentiful stock.

To give yourself the best chances, be sure to log in to your Target account beforehand with your shipping and billing info pre-filled. You also want to choose your nearest Target as your favorite store, which will prioritize that location once you can place an order.

Hopefully you have some good fortune this time around, and feel free to sound off in the comments if you are able to snag one. Whether you have a PS5 or not, if you subscribe to our Verge Deals newsletter you can get curated deals from The Verge straight to your inbox.


While Ragnorök’s third-person action gameplay feels similar to its predecessor, its story is far more ambitious. As Kratos wishes to bury his past, he’s trying to convince his young son, Atreus, not to follow a tempting path at discovering his godhood and defying prophecy.


The PS5 Digital Edition costs $400. Compared to the standard PS5, this console is $100 less and does not include a Blu-ray disc drive.

Some key accessories for new PS5 owners


The black DualSense controller sports the same hardware as the original — haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, etc. — only with a two-tone black design reminiscent of PS2, PS3, and PS4 consoles.


Sony’s own wireless gaming headset is made to showcase the PS5’s 3D audio effect and also works on the PS4.


A remake of the 2009 game Demon’s Souls by FromSoftware, rebuilt from the ground up by Bluepoint Games.


The 2021 release from Arkane Studios — the team behind Prey and Dishonored — is a masterpiece in many ways, an open-ended mystery that’s thrilling, action-packed, and just the right amount of weird.
