A new restock of the PlayStation 5 took place today at Best Buy. Over the course of the past month, many PS5 restocks at a number of retail chains have been going better than normal, leading some to believe that the stock of Sony's current console could become more plentiful. Unfortunately, this new sale at Best Buy today seems to have now dashed those hopes.
As a whole, today's restock of the PS5 at Best Buy was very hit and miss. While some customers reported on social media that they were able to jump right in and buy a console without any problems, others were stuck in long digital lines that resulted in them never being able to purchase the PS5. Others even went on to state that they were able to buy the PS5, only to then have their order get canceled soon after.
With all of this in mind, it definitely sounds like the PS5 is going to remain hard to come by for the foerseeable future. And even if stock of the platform does get better soon enough, these restocks will likely continue to come with some annoyances.
Did you try to buy the PS5 in this new restock at Best Buy for yourself? And if so, what were your results? Let me know either down in the comments or hit me up on Twitter at @MooreMan12.

The Waiting Is the Hardest Part
In the PLEASE WAIT button for ps5 for best buy. Been here 25 minutes. One of two things will happen, either it'll tell me no stores with inventory 250 miles, OR because I'm a day late on payment I won't be able to use my card to pay for it.— Brandon smith (@HesMiniscule) January 20, 2022
Most likely inventory issue though

It's a Long Process...
I'm currently 'in line' on the internet for a PS5 from Best Buy. I have no idea how long this could take or if I'll even get one.— Matt Calamia (@MattCalamia) January 20, 2022

Stop Baiting Customers
@BestBuy Yo guys, here’s a tip, if you’re out of stock of PS5 consoles while I’m in line, just kick me out. Now I’m just burning up my battery, and wasting my time.— Christian Martinez (@CmartMan) January 20, 2022
