Exclusive: There’s a private PS5 replenishment today at Sony Direct, and it’s the biggest ever, according to our exclusive data from PS5 replenishes Twitter tracker Matt Swider, which will send you alerts when the PS5 is in stock in the US – if you follow their Twitter account and activate notifications. Matt typically gets around 25 direct messages from his followers saying they’ve received an email invitation to a private virtual queue (Sony sends them to random PSN users). Today, September 17, he received 125 of those direct messages, suggesting that the invitations were sent to five times as many people. Whether or not Sony has more PlayStation 5 console inventory (or will make it more difficult to get the console, forcing customers to look for other methods of restocking [exclusive news on that coming soon]) that remains to be seen.
Here’s how to know when the next PS5 restocking will take place:
► When? Follow our Twitter tracker on the PS5 Matt Swider restocking and turn on notifications for instant replenishment news. This is the fastest way to get PS5 and Xbox stock updates.
► Never buy from other Twitter users – ever. These are all scams. Only buy from stores in the United States that Matt warns you about. No one will sell a PS5 for just $ 550.
► How do I get the invitation by e-mail? Sign up for Matt’s newsletter for instructions on how to access the Sony email invitation list. It details the steps each week.
Sony Direct PS5 restocking time today
The Sony Direct PS5 restocking is today – at least those with the email invitation. It comes from [email protected], so be sure to check your inbox.
According to the email invitation, today’s invitation-only queue to purchase the PS5 will begin at 3:00 PM EDT / 12:00 PM PDT and customers must click the “Buy Now” button in their email at that time to try to secure a PlayStation 5 console.
PS5 stock for every customer is not guaranteed, but you’ll have a much better chance of purchasing the Sony console than you would during a public virtual queue. If there is a public virtual queue, it will happen at 5:00 p.m. EDT, although Sony does not always have a console assignment for that time.
The Sony Direct page will say you have a wait time of “over an hour” but this is normal (and inaccurate) as the progress bar goes faster at 20 minutes, 12 minutes, 8 minutes and two minutes until it’s your turn.
Sony Direct Email Invitation Bonanza
There are five times as many people claiming to have received the Sony Direct email invitation, according to data sent directly to Matt Swider, who received over 125 Twitter direct messages with screenshots of the email invitations. September 17 mail at 3:00 p.m. EDT.
This means one of two things: either Sony has gone wild by distributing email invitations this time around and has the normal number of consoles available for purchase, or it has held everyone back and is going. offer many PS5 consoles to match the amount of invitations in circulation – more than any other Sony Direct replenishment before today.
Based on the data Matt Swider has access to, we’ll know in a few hours where things stand.
