A new restock of the PlayStation 5 took place earlier today at Best Buy to kick off 2022. Over the course of the past couple months, the PS5 has been very hard to come by at numerous retailers, primarily because it was one of the hottest gifts of the 2021 holiday season. While the desire for the PS5 surely hasn't died down in the wake of Christmas, today's latest restock at Best Buy was finally able to deliver some wins to those who have long been pursuing the console.
As soon as today's new restock of the PS5 began at Best Buy, social media began filling up with impressions from customers talking about their own experience with the sale. Even though many PS5 restocks seem to end in heartbreak, today's purchasing opportunity turned out to be quite the opposite. Rather than frustrating a vast number of customers who were looking to buy the PS5 for themselves, today's restock actually seemed to work out well and led to lots of people getting their own long-awaited win.
Of course, this wasn't true for everyone who tried to buy the PS5 today as some were still left out in the cold wanting Sony's next-gen console. Despite this, today's PS5 restock ended up going far better than normal and provided some renewed hope that perhaps shortages of the platform won't be as frequent throughout 2022.

Now to Decide What to Play...
Exciting! I was able to snag a PS5 today from Best Buy. Pick it up on Sunday. The anticipation! Now I gotta re-up my Plus so I can get Shadows and Miles! Then next month HORIZON!!! I'll have plenty of things to play while I sit sleepless with a new born. #ps5— Micah just learned... (@Micah_Hurt_) January 5, 2022

Finally scored a PS5 at Best Buy after lamenting today how difficult it is still is to buy a "next-gen" console at the stores. Must be destiny.— Healy Chen (@chenhealy) January 5, 2022
