PS5 stock update: Amazon restock going live TODAY, supply drop time and crash warning

PS5 stock is dropping at Amazon today, with the online shopping giant confirming the restock time for their inbound PlayStation 5 supply drop. Earlier this week Amazon started sending out e-mails to those interested in the PS5 letting them know when stock will be going live on their website for the PS5 launch day in UK and Europe. And the message from Amazon confirmed that PS5 stock will become available from 12pm UK time, which is 1pm CEST, on Thursday November 19.

However, Amazon confirmed that the amount of PS5 stock they’ll have available to buy is “limited” so it wouldn’t be a surprise if it sells out fast.

The Amazon PS5 stock e-mail, which was entitled ‘PlayStation 5 – More Stock Coming’ said: “The Sony PlayStation 5 will be available for order again on Amazon.co.uk on 19 November 2020 after 12:00 noon GMT. Stock is limited.

“We will make every effort to deliver all orders as soon as possible. If you order, we will email you with an estimated date. However, this may be subject to change.”

Amazon customers in Spain and Italy also reported receiving the same message, saying stock will be available 12pm local time – which is 1pm CEST.

The inbound PS5 stock drop at Amazon comes as other leading retailers have released extra PS5 stock today, which is the PS5 release date for regions such as UK and Europe.

GAME, John Lewis, Very and ShopTo have all released their PS5 resupplies but stock either sold out fast or the retailer’s online stores ended up crashing.

John Lewis currently has a “no signal” warning on their website, while GAME has sold out of their stock as has Very.

Currys PC World were planning on releasing PS5 stock at 9am but this has now been pushed back to “later today”.

Revealing this news, the official Currys PC World Twitter posted: “Our 9am go live for the PS5 is unfortunately on hold. We’re really sorry as we know a lot of you are really excited to get your hands on the PS5, we are hoping that it will go live later today.

“Keep your eyes peeled on our page for more updates”.

They later added: “There are loads of people trying to get on the site at the moment, so it might not be as snappy as normal. Just keep trying and I’m sure you’ll get on. Sorry if it’s causing any frustration.”

It remains to be seen whether Amazon will be hit by similar issues, or if the online shopping giant has a masterplan in store to avoid the other server troubles that have hit other websites.

The PS5 is launching in the UK and Europe a week after the next-generation console launched in regions such as Japan and America, and it is arriving amid huge hype.

Besides offering a radical design, a groundbreaking UI and a revolutionary new controller, the PS5 will offer the kind of unmissable games that Sony has been pushing out for years.

On day one PS5 gamers will be able to pick up launch titles and PlayStation exclusives Demon’s Souls, Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales and Sackboy: A Big Adventure, among other games such as new entries in the hugely popular Call of Duty and Assassin’s Creed series.

While every PS5 console comes loaded with a free game – Astro’s Playroom – which critics have been raving about as a joyous experience which shows off how much of a game-changer the DualSense is.

The DualSense controller has plenty of incredible features, but arguably the biggest additions are haptic feedback – a generational upgrade of rumble tech – and adaptive triggers.

And Sony has plenty more things lined up for the PS5, with more exclusives already confirmed for 2021 including Horizon Forbidden West, God of War Ragnarok and Ratchet & Clank: A Rift Apart.

Gran Turismo 7 and Housemarque’s new IP Return also look set to debut in 2021, as do third-party games such as Resident Evil 8, Deathloop and GhostWire: Tokyo and much more.

Express.co.uk were lucky enough to get to review the PS5 ahead of launch, and we were left thoroughly impressed – awarding it a full five out of five stars.

We said: “From the launch line-up to the loading times, DualSense to the dashboard, the PS5 is a fresh and exciting new console that truly feels like a next-gen device.”
