PS5 fans could see Amazon’s anticipated stock drop come later today or tomorrow after a new console batch was expected to arrive yesterday.
Twitter tipster PS5StockAlertUK noted mid-morning yesterday that it was now passed the usual time for a stock release.
“It’s looking like Amazon will drop either Tuesday or Wednesday now as they’ve passed today’s usual drop times,” they said.
“No current news for other retailers as of yet.”
Smyths Toys is also tipped to be restocking at the end of this week between March 18 – 20, according to @PS5StockAlert.
The restock news comes as Curry’s made a dramatic change to way customers can buy PS5s, introducing a new “raffle” system.
The tech retailer is planning to scrap the queue system it and many other websites have previously used as it “unfairly” rewards those with stronger interview connections and with time to sit online.
Now Curry’s is allowing customers to register for a “priority pass” which enters them into a raffle which in turn gives them a special code that’s valid for 72 hours and allows them to make a PS5 purchase.
