PS5 ‘getting restock at Amazon TODAY’ – with 46,000 consoles up for grabs


AMAZON will release a whopping 46,000 PlayStation 5s today as part of a major restock of the sold out console.

The sought after machines will land on the retailer’s US site between 9am and 11am ET, TechRadar reports.

Amazon US is getting a huge PS5 restock today, according to reports

The tech news site said it spoke to sources with knowledge of Amazon’s PS5 inventory schedule to confirm the date and time of release.

There’s no word yet on whether the Amazon UK site – where Sony’s console is also sold out – will be restocking any time soon.

TechRadar said that it was unclear how the 46,000 consoles were split between the PS5 disc and PS5 Digital Edition.

The site said that restocks typically sell out within three minutes.

Amazon doesn’t sell bundles, so it’ll be just the standalone consoles on sale.

TechRadar has a solid track record when it comes to forecasting restocks ahead of time.

It’s correctly called restock dates at both Target and Best Buy in recent weeks.

Sony launched two versions of the PlayStation 5 in the US on November 12, and in the UK on November 19.

The full PS5 costs £449/$499, while a Digital Edition without a disc tray is priced at £359/$399.

They’re up against Microsoft’s Xbox Series X (£449) and Xbox Series S (£249), which hit shelves worldwide on November 10.

The PS5 launched with major exclusive games like Spider-Man Miles Morales and a revamped version of Dark Souls for players to enjoy.

Xbox gamers, on the other hand, have a new Halo title to look forward to later this year.

All four consoles have been sold out around the world, with stock seesawing in and out of availability over the past few weeks.

PlayStation boss Jim Ryan recently offered hope to gamers who wanted a console.

Speaking to the Financial Times, Ryan admitted that stock levels would climb steadily month-on-month.

He added that from July onwards, it will be much easier to get a PS5.

“It will get better every month throughout 2021,” Ryan explained.

“The pace of the improvement in the supply chain will gather through the course of the year.

“So by the time we get to the second half of [2021], you’re going to be seeing really decent numbers indeed.”

In other news, HOAR’s favourite alternative to a games console is the Oculus Quest 2 VR headset.

Check out the wildly impressive Panasonic 65HZ1000 TV, which makes most tellies look rubbish.

And Dell’s Alienware R10 Ryzen Edition is a gaming PC powerhouse that crushes both the new consoles.
