While it's coming a little late, Amazon has stuck with its promise of offering more PS5 restocks this month. The online giant will hold a Digital-only PS5 restock for Prime members today, at 11am ET.
Last month Amazon promised their Prime Members that another PS5 restock was on the way through March and, with just two days left in the month, left many hopeful buyers wondering if they were going to deliver. However, if you were hoping for a Disk version of the console, you may want to sit this one out.
Amazon will only be offering the Digital edition this time around, priced at $399. If you're not fussed about which version of the console you pick up, going for the digital could be a significant saving.
If you're not already an Amazon Prime member you can currently pick up a 30 day free trial which will give you access to future PS5 restocks and plenty more perks as well. After the trial ends, your membership will continue at $14.99 a month.
Similar to their last PS5 restock, this drop will be exclusively for Amazon Prime members, so if you're not a member yet, you may want to sign up just in time for the drop (there's a handy 30 day free trial up for grabs for cost-cutters). This trend of exclusivity seems to be continuing with most current-gen console restocks, with only a small amount of retailers offering consoles to every customer.
Rumours still suggest that Target is still set for a restock this week. Speculation last week by restock guru @Jake_Randall_YT suggests that Target was previously gearing up for a larger PS5 restock, but we haven't heard anything yet. If you've been waiting to pick up a current-gen console without needing a membership or subscription, Target's in-store drops are your best bet.
