Amazon has confirmed a PS5 restock will happen today. This is rare, as retailers usually never tell you this far ahead of time about a restock, but this gives you a competitive advantage to pre-open some tabs and get refreshing!

The much sought-after PlayStation 5 Digital Edition is dropping on Amazon to Prime members only ion March 30 at 11 a.m. ET. This was confirmed on Amazon Games' Twitter account (opens in new tab).

The PlayStation 5 is one of the best gaming consoles (opens in new tab) around. Sony's best gaming system yet, it features fast loading, a speedy SSD, and great backwards compatibility. 

In our review, we were floored by its incredibly powerful components and revolutionary controller haptics. We also praised its revamped user interface with innovative features and stunning 4K graphics. 

As a reminder, the disc-less PS5 Digital Edition is priced at $399 and you need Amazon Prime to secure your order. 

We recommend adding it to your wish list too, as we've seen a higher success rate of people going straight to checkout from there rather than adding to the basket from the product page.
