AMAZON is set for a huge PlayStation 5 restock today, offering gamers a chance to end their months-long search for the sold out console.
That’s according to one widely-respected leaker, who says that 13,000 next gen machines will be making their way to the UK version of the web store.

The consoles will drop across the next seven days, tipster PS5Instant tweeted.
“Amazon #PS5restock planned 2-9th June 8-10am,” the account, which has accurately leaked PS5 stock drops in the past, wrote.
Another trusted tipster, PS5StockAlertUK, forecast a similar release schedule, tweeting: “Amazon UK: 1st-3rd June”.
There was no console stock on Amazon UK yesterday, meaning stock could arrive today or Thursday.
Of course, the ecommerce giant has made no official announcement on its next PS5 restock, so take the rumours with a pinch of salt for now.
Restock-tracking Twitter accounts commonly rely a network of sources to reveal stock drops ahead of time – and not all of them are reliable.
It’s not the only UK retailer rumoured to be due a fresh batch of PS5s this week.
John Lewis is tipped for a restock by June 8, while Smyths Toys is due for a small bundle of consoles this Friday.
Sony released the PlayStation 5 worldwide in November 2020.
The full PS5 costs £449/$499, while a Digital Edition without a disc tray is priced at £359/$399.
They’re up against the Xbox Series X (£449) and Xbox Series S (£249), which also hit shelves last November.
All four consoles have been sold out around the world, with stock seesawing in and out of availability over the past few months.
Stocks of the next-gen consoles remain in scant supply due to a worldwide shortage of the microchips used to power them.
It’s gotten so bad, that Sony recently confirmed it plans to sell PS5s direct to customers in the UK this year for the first time.
Sales will take place through the PlayStation Direct store, which is launching in Europe by March 2022.
PlayStation boss Jim Ryan recently claimed that it would be much easier to get a PS5 from July onwards as production of the console accelerates.
The PS5 launched with major exclusive games like Spider-Man Miles Morales and a revamped version of Dark Souls for players to enjoy.
Xbox gamers, on the other hand, have a new Halo title to look forward to later this year.
