Update: Amazon is now sold out of PS5 consoles. Check our PS5 restock hub for the latest updates and the retailers to check inventory next. Also, bookmark our Amazon Black Friday deals live blog for regular coverage of all the best seasonal offers. 

Amazon is holding a PS5 restock right now but you'll need to be a Prime member in order to purchase the console right now. Once signed in to your Prime account navigate to the PS5 listing page using the links below and press "see all buying options" and the option to purchase from Amazon should appear at the top. 

This drop comes as part of the retailer's massive Black Friday deals promotion. It's also the third PS5 restock of the week with Walmart and Sony Direct also taking fresh orders of the in-demand machine yesterday (November 22). We don't expect it to be the last PS5 restock of the Black Friday period either. 

PS5: $499 @ Amazon

Sony's flagship gaming machine, the PS5 is one of the most in-demand tech products currently available. For good reason: this powerful console boasts 4K visuals, an innovative DualSense controller, and a 4K Blu-ray drive. Amazon is holding a PS5 restock right now. 

PS5 Digital: $399 @ Amazon

PS5 Digital: $399 @ Amazon
The PS5 Digital console lacks a 4K UDH Blu-ray disc drive. As a result, it's slightly thinner than its counterpart. It also sells for $399 ($100 less) and includes a PS5 DualSense controller. The retailer is holding a PS5 restock as part of its Black Friday deals. 

The PS5 console is currently coming in and out of stock so don't give up hope if you jump over to the site and it's sold out at first. Keep refreshing the page and you might be fortunate enough to secure a machine.

How to buy a PS5 at Amazon 

There isn’t a guaranteed formula for success when it comes to securing a PS5 during an Amazon restock, but there are a few things you can do to tip the odds in your favor. 

Firstly, make sure you have an Amazon account set up ahead of time with your address information and payment details pre-saved. Getting stock in your basket is only half the battle, once you’ve managed that it’s a race to complete check out. If you’re stuck entering your card number and zip code, odds are the console will sell out while you’re typing away. 

There is a slightly odd Amazon trick that has been proven to make checking out with a PS5 easier. By placing the console in your wish list ahead of time when it is restocked you can add to your cart from there. This allows you to bypass the listing page, which practically always crashes due to overwhelming traffic. 

Using this trick you can typically get stock in your basket the minute the restock is live, and that gives you a pretty sizeable advantage over the people who are stuck trying to refresh the actual PS5 listing page in hopes of getting it to work. 

Just make sure you have the PS5 in your wish list ahead of time, as you can still add it even when the console is sold out. Do this well before the restock happens in order to make use of this trick. Trying to add the console to your wish list during a stock drop will usually lead to the website spinning out an error message. 

We tested this method ourselves during an Xbox Series X restock and can confirm that it does in fact work. We managed to get the Series X in our basket four times, whereas we couldn’t get the console in our basket once through the listing page as it kept crashing. 

Also, make sure to keep our guide on PS5 restock bookmarked, as we’ll update it with any additional information on the latest Amazon PS5 restock the minute we get it.
