All eyes on Amazon for a possible PS5 restock this weekend

The end of the month is nearing, and we have yet to hear from Amazon on a PS5 restock. Last month, the huge retailer hinted about a possible restock throughout March. Although there has been inkling of a PS5 restock there still might be some hope. Amazon still have a week to make good on their promise, so all eyes on them. 

Amazon tends to restock towards the end of the month, with them pulling through at the end of February, giving us some hope that the PS5 restock could be happening between now and March 31st. If a drop does happen, Amazon has confirmed that it will be for Amazon Prime members. This priority trend for paid members does not seem to be dying down any time soon. However, Amazon has been a little too quiet. We haven't heard any rumours from any reliable social media trackers about a possible PS5 restock from Amazon, with only days left to make good on their promise. 

If Amazon does disappoint, there is still a ray of hope for those who are still on the hunt for a PS5. Rumours have suggested that Target has been gathering stock of the current-gen console for a huge restock this next week. Restock guru @Jake_Randall_YT tweeted today that Target has been receiving shipments over the last week and more coming over the weekend, with a possible restocking happening as early as today. 

Target is also one of the only major retailers not to have their next-gen consoles gated behind a membership or subscription, which is incredible for those who have missed out on many restocks due to membership priority. The restock will probably be an online purchase with a store pick up. Make sure to bookmark Target and have your payment details at the ready if you want to get your hands on a PS5

Which PS5 should you buy?

The PS5 launch gave gamers the choice of two consoles, the Digital version and Disk version. Both consoles perform exactly the same. The specs on both the digital and disk version are AMD Zen 2-based CPU, the same 16GB GDDR6 / 256-bit memory, and the same 825GB SSD.
