The PlayStation 5 had another restock earlier today at retail storefront Target, which means that many more fans who have patiently been waiting to pick up Sony's next-gen console had a new opportunity to finally get one for themselves. And while some fans did happen to finally land a PS5, others were greatly caught off guard by this new sale at Target, mainly due to how early in the day it transpired.
Social media was filled with reactions today from many PlayStation fans as they attempted to snag a PS5 at Target. Some fans assumed that a restock at Target might be happening thanks to rumors that were circling, and as such, were ready to pounce when the consoles actually became available. Others, specifically those on the west coast, were shocked to see this restock happen so early in the morning, and as such, realized that they had completely missed out by the time they noticed.
As a whole, getting the PS5 at any location continues to be a tall task. Luckily, many restocks of this type seem to be happening more often, meaning that it hopefully shouldn't be long before everyone who wants a PS5 can finally get one.
Did you happen to land a PS5 in this restock at Target, or are you still on the hunt for the console? Let me know either down in the comments or hit me up on Twitter at @MooreMan12.

Target Can Still Improve
Hey @Target and @PlayStation. I had a PS5 for pickup at a local store in my cart this morning and was checking out through your interface. Once I entered my payment information, the PS5 was gone. In the real world, when I put something in my cart, it's there until I put it back,— Aaron (@acsmith37) July 9, 2021

The Early Morning Drop Hurting Many
I’m so mad I literally woke up 30 minutes too late for the target ps5 drop today— Becca (@BacklogBecca) July 9, 2021
Fingers Crossed That Scalpers Missed Out
@Target that PS5 drop was a tragic mistake. Constantly kicking it out of my cart while still in stock. Buddy of mine reported the same thing. I just hope real people got them at least and not bots.— Michael Reinhart (@Synicaal_MR) July 9, 2021
