For the second time this week, PlayStation Direct is having an invite-only PS5 restock – find out how to get your console on November 18!

It’s no secret that buying a PS5 has been almost impossible, even if the console launched a whole year ago now. However, there are still some small chances of you nabbing a PS5, thanks to regular, but unpredictable restocks.

Despite previous claims that the PS5 stock shortage could be over, it is actually harder to buy than ever. This is thanks to retailers hoarding consoles for Black Friday sales.

Luckily, PlayStation Direct isn’t saving PS5s for later. In fact, the online retailer is holding a PS5 restock today, November 18.

Check out every other PS5 restock happening from November 15-21 too.
