Amazon to restock with 46,000 PS5 units

It has been rumored that e-commerce giant Amazon will restock PS5s on its platform on March 18. Usually, an enormous amount of units like this never arrive in a single e-commerce restock. So, this might be the best chance for fans to get their hands on a PlayStation 5 since the console’s release in November 2020.

Along with it, rumors of restocks are also floating around on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean in the UK. Amazon and retailers Smyths Toys are expected to announce a restock sometime this week.

Restocks in the same week for multiple regions is a huge positive. Unfortunately, Amazon doesn’t announce restocks ad so fans have to check for updates constantly or risk losing a golden opportunity like this. They also need to be quick with their purchasing because even with an extensive restock like this, it will still sell out quickly.

Xbox Series X/S restocks

On the other side of the console war, Xbox Series consoles might also have a restock along with their Playstation counterparts. Although no one knows how many units will be available, fans can expect a decent amount.

UK retailers will also have some kind of restock to go along with it. But other websites such as Best Buy, Newegg and GameStop have revealed no details about any restocks happening in the near future.

Buying Xbox and PlayStation consoles is still a hassle for fans, and they are still waiting for the moment where they can buy them without having to fight tooth and nail for it. With the ongoing scalper issues and semiconductor supply shortage, both consoles have had a major issue in keeping up with the demand.

Hopefully, Xbox and PlayStation can finally resolve the issue and supply adequate units for the gaming community.
