If you’ve been wanting a PlayStation 5 but haven’t been able to get one this holiday season due to shortages, then good news — you may have the chance to buy one at Target tomorrow.

Target is reportedly restocking its supply of PS5s tomorrow, as told by staff from Target to Spiel Times and reported by Tom’s Guide. The staff said that they expected the consoles to only be going to certain stores though, with some stores getting between 10 and 15 machines and some getting none. This information is regarding stores in the U.S. Midwest, but the staff also said they’d heard similar things from other staff in Target stores on the West Coast, South Central, and South-Eastern areas.

The timeframe of the restocks is reported to be between December 27 and December 29, so start checking Target tomorrow if you want to score yourself a new console. However, remember that the PS5 is not available to buy in-store in Targets, so there’s no point in turning up in person. You’ll need to make a purchase online through Target’s website for collection at the store, with drive-up collection available to stay safe and distanced.

The Spiel Times says that Target typically restocks between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m. ET, and that it has restocked the PS5 typically between 5 a.m. and 7 a.m. ET in the past. So you’ll have to make it an early morning if you’re hoping to grab an elusive next-gen console.

The PlayStation 5 has received stellar reviews for speedy hardware enabling fast game loading times, with a new controller with enhanced haptics and an attractive modern design. With launch titles like Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, the remake of Demon’s Souls, and Sackboy: A Big Adventure, the console has been a hit with gamers — or at least with those who have been able to get their hands on one. The console has been difficult to purchase due to high demand due to the pandemic and interrupted supply chains this year.

Experts are saying that the PS5 might not be easily available to purchase until the summer of 2021, so if you want one soon, you’ll have to keep an eye out on restocks like the one at Target tomorrow.

5 features we’d need from a PS5 Pro to justify an upgrade
The Playstation 5 system standing upright.

A new version of the PlayStation 5 may be on the horizon – at least if you believe the leaks. Earlier this week, Insider Gaming reported that a PS5 Pro is in development and is scheduled for a late 2024 launch. Considering that the rumor site previously claimed that a PS5 with a detachable drive would launch this year, you might want to take the claim with some skepticism. Insider Gaming provided no actual details on specs or what a Pro model would entail, only claiming that a source says it's in the works.

There’s not a lot to go on there, but just about any educated gamer could predict that a PS5 Pro is coming in the next year or two. Sony previously followed the PlayStation 4 with a PS4 Pro, which would improve the system’s power three years after its launch. It’s reasonable to think that PS5 would get the same treatment four years later -- which would likely be near the halfway point of its life span.
