Last week had the biggest PS5 drops of the year, as Target and Best Buy sold hundreds of disc and Digital Editions of the console. Of course, not everyone who wanted a PlayStation 5 console managed to nab one for themselves. While it’s no doubt frustrating to see these sites going down and failing to let users buy, the silver lining of last week’s drops is that there’s now more hope (and fewer people trying to buy alongside you!). As always, the staff at PlayStation Lifestyle are ready and waiting to keep you updated on the latest restock news across US and UK retailers. Here is the PSLS PS5 Restock Update for January 9, 2022 for both the disc and Digital Editions of the Sony console.
Which US stores have PS5 stock for today, January 9?
US PS5 Console Restock Update
For today, January 9, 2022, Ebay is the safest bet for US PS5 stock. Filtering by “Buy It Now” and “Newly Listed,” combined with a price limit, will help users bypass scalper pricing.

After Wednesday and Thursday’s big drops from Best Buy and Target last week, PS5 restock news has been slow. On the bright side, dedicated stock tracker Jake Randall is continuing to relay any information about new PS5s coming into stores, and we here at PSLS will also be keeping our ears to the ground for any new PS5 stock updates.
US PS5 Accessories Restock Update
- PS5 DualSense Wireless Controller (Various colors)
- PS5 Faceplates (Unofficial in black and blue for Disk Edition)
- PS5 1TB NVMe SSD (WD Black)
- PS5 Pulse 3D Wireless Headset
A good number of PS5 accessories continue to be in stock. For those who have managed to order a PS5, or want to be prepared for when they do finally get one, the above accessories are well worth considering.
Which UK stores have PS5 stock for today, January 9?
EE remains the best bet for people looking for new PS5 stock in the UK.
Those who have a phone contract with EE, or are thinking about signing up, the Sony section of the EE website is well worth a look. Here you can add a PS5 to your plan.
If EE isn’t a viable option for you, eBay is still the best online store for UK PS5 stock. At the time of writing, systems are selling with a slight premium over RRP. Many of these are listed as “Used” or “Refurbished,” and so could be gifts from the holiday season that people ended up not wanting. If that’s the case, they should be relatively new.
Remember that, when buying refurbished, it’s worth reaching out to the seller about the warranty status and if the PS5 has been opened up at all.
Search listings using “Buy It Now” and “Newly Listed” sorting to find the latest posts. Combine this with a maximum price cap to find the best deals and cut out the scalper pricing.
Those hoping for new Amazon UK PS5 stock will be disappointed to learn that there have been no reports about an upcoming drop. December 23 was the last time that PS5s were in stock at Amazon UK.
This PSLS PS5 Restock Update post will be regularly updated as the day goes on, to make sure our readers get the latest, most accurate stock information. Stay tuned!
