A new PS5 recovery report claims that PlayStation gamers who are still looking for the next generation console can still get one before 2021, with permission from Target. In the last couple of days, PS5 inventory has not existed at the border. From Amazon, to Walmart, to Best Buy, to GameStop, no one has had a PS5 this week. However, it seems that Target is in the process of pushing a new round of equities just before 2020 ends, or at least that is what a new report claims.
According to the report, which gets in the way of the Spiel Times, Target stores across the country have begun receiving 10-15 units of the console, while other stores expect new stock to arrive this Sunday, December 27th.
Right now, there is no word on when exactly these stocks will be rolled out, and it is unclear whether it will be nationwide. However, if some stores do not get back before the end of the weekend, it probably means that stocking will not happen until next week, probably on Monday or Tuesday.
While stores are apparently getting PS5 stock this weekend, you will still not be able to buy any of it in the store. Your only way to secure some of this stock will be through online purchases. If you can secure a console this way, you can pick it up at the store or have it sent to your home.
As the Spiel Times notes, target updates usually occur between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m. EST, and like all other online retailers, each recovery usually comes with site editions and draws in many robots to compete against.
As for the report itself, bring it with a grain of salt. While it mentions several sources, Target itself has not announced anything yet. And even if stock comes in this weekend, that of course does not mean that it will be sold before the end of the year.
