The overdue Amazon PS5 restock is scheduled for Thursday, March, 16, according to information sent to TechRadar today, and we’ll soon reveal the time when the hard-to-find Sony console will be back in stock.
Right now, we can tell you there are 46,000 PS5 consoles in the inventory at Amazon, and they’re set to be released on Thursday, thanks to information seen by both TechRadar and YouTuber Jake Randall, who specializes in PS5 and Xbox restock information.
Previously, we’ve had exclusive information, based on insider tips, about the Target and Best Buy PS5 restock that happened last week and the week before.
So what time is the Amazon PS5 restock? We’ve seen the time, but we’re choosing to withhold that information until we have confirm at the moment due to the fact that bots will swoop in and pick up the inventory.

With the help of warehouse sources, we’ve gotten other PS5 inventory projections correct, including quantity, the time, and date of shipments.
Here’s why the PS5 restock date and time is never set in stone at brick-and-mortar retail stores – and this may apply to Amazon, too: every warehouse that is due consoles needs to get them in first – and there needs to be enough of them distributed around the country. It’s an inventory and logistic necessity, we’re told.
Also, Amazon, like Best Buy, may not sell through its full inventory to consumers. Some consoles may be held in case someone comes back with a console that’s defective. We’re told that’s rare, but it does happen, so there needs to be enough stock to remedy those issues in each store.
Amazon PS5 restock tips
Ordering PS5 at Amazon is difficult simply because everyone has their credit card information and address plugged into their account. Simply put, there’s no time to waste given one-click ordering offered Amazon over other retailers in the US.
That’s different from Best Buy, which has you wait on a page until you can actually place the order and re-hit the Add to cart button. It’s all in an effort to beat the bots employed by PS5 scalpers.
