Amazon has unleashed a massive PS5 restock starting today, Wednesday 2nd June, as predicted by the widely-respected PS5Instant Twitter account.
“Amazon #PS5restock planned 2-9th June 8-10am,” read the tipster’s tweet. Amazon was said to be sitting on a shipment of up to 13,000 Sony PlayStation 5 consoles in the UK.
Having dropped around 8.30am this morning, it’s now sold out but there could be plenty more where that came from, which is good news for those trying to figure out where to buy a PS5.

The PS5 is here and it offers next-gen gaming, 3D audio and an innovative DualSense controller that helps immerse you in the action. The standard PS5 plays 4K Blu-ray discs but there’s also the option of the cheaper (disc-less) PS5 Digital Edition.
Amazon isn’t the only UK retailer tipped for a PS5 restock this week. Game is set to drop more PS5 bundles as soon as tomorrow. The drops are typically between 9am and 10am BST.
High street favourite John Lewis could drop a smaller batch of consoles between now and Tuesday 8th June, while Smyths Toys is due to release a small wave of PS5s between the 3rd and 5th June. The retailer is known for releasing stock on Fridays, so Friday 4th June could be a good shout.
Looking further ahead, Argos is rumoured to be readying a PS5 restock for between the 21st and 24th June.
With UK retailers unable to keep up with demand, and the June 2021 PS Plus games available to download now, Sony plans to take matters into its own hands. The Japanese giant will launch its PlayStation Direct online store in Europe ‘within the fiscal year’.
In the meantime, today’s predicted Amazon drop could be your best chance of getting a PS5 for a while. See PS5 stock on Amazon.
