UPDATE: PS5 may drop asda and Amazon early. Read on for more information.
Spring is here. Birds are singing, the sun is shining, and buying a PS5 is still ridiculously difficult. What’s up? It’s been over a year since its launch, but we’re still struggling thanks to the ongoing global shortage of semiconductors caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Sony’s Playstation 5 was released in November 2020 and it’s still hard to buy one today.
That said, things are definitely looking good in March after facing a bleak start to 2022 with the two worst months of decline recorded in January and February. In just the first few weeks we’ve seen stocks from Amazon, ha, hamlets, buy at, playstation direct, Very, little wood, OA, John Lewis and partners (eventually), smith toys, Play – twice, curries, and Argus.
Our live blog is here to introduce you to one of Sony’s elusive next-generation consoles and give you an idea of the best games and accessories you can get with your new machine. If you want to know which online retailers will stock up first, keep scrolling for updates.

Could PS5 drop to AO soon?
Earlier this month, OA dropped a Forbidden Horizon West package on their website, but it was literally sold out in minutes. Can you have another stock soon?
Possible! The retailer usually restocks every three to four weeks, so there is a possibility of another short-term drop, perhaps towards the end of the month.
Just to note: AO removes all PS5 links once the console is out of stock, so none of the AO links in this live blog will work until the console is stock.

Could BT PS5 shares drop soon?
BT Store took the top spot in our PS5 replenishment rankings for February. While the retailer only had one delivery, it took two days and skyrocketed to number one. It shows how bad the supply situation was in February.
But IT is likely to lag behind this month: the retailer didn’t stock anything in March, and Play It has now dropped twice. The consoles were last refreshed at 10:00 am on the morning of February 24, so we may see another stock at that time next month.
You need an access code to purchase the console from the BT Store. If you are a BT Broadband customer, you can find it on your my IT portal. Simply login, go to “Your Offers” and click PS5.
You can also register your interest on the BT site. You will receive an email with the access code that will take you directly to the order page where you can purchase the PS5 when it launches. Basically the same method as above, but with fewer steps. You will need your account details for both.

PS5 Disc Edition vs Digital
With the restocking of disc edition on Amazon What’s the difference between the two consoles in our opinion? Really, the only difference is that the digital editing console is not a disk drive. So it’s (we’re guessing) cheaper. If you don’t have physical PS4 games and don’t have a Blu-ray movie collection, it might be a good idea to opt for the digital version.
Games are downloaded from PlayStation Store and ownership is tied to your PlayStation Network account. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to play any physical games you might have, as there is no disk drive.
The PlayStation 5 Disc Edition is £449 cheaper, and the Digital Edition is £359 cheaper without the disc drive.

How to Buy PS5 from Amazon on Restock
Yep, the Amazon PS5 is coming out on March 23, which is what this human action analysis machine is predicting right now, so you’ll need to prepare ahead of time. Please tell me.
Essentially Amazon does not allow any old random person to buy PS5 from their website. No, no, the console is too special for that. You must be an Amazon Prime subscriber or you will be excluded.
Fortunately, you can get a 30-day free trial and then cancel immediately after purchasing a console. We’ll let you know if we hear more.

Where the hell is Asda PS5 stock?
Asda has never stocked the PS5 in 2022, and the final installment will take place on Wednesday, December 22. We don’t know what the situation is right now but definitely more consoles should be on the way.
The retailer crashed on a previous Thursday, but the dips occurred around 8:30am, and there has been no Thursday replenishment since May 13 through May 25. While it could be renewed soon, it’s unlikely to happen this week; It has never been published on a Friday before. Unfortunately, we are still waiting for a week.

Could Amazon PS5 Shares Drop Soon?
Two weeks ago, Amazon launched the digital edition PS5 console on its website. The restock only took 10 minutes, as is often the case with digital releases, but the lack of a disc release console refresh indicates we can expect another release very, very soon. .
Amazon last released the Disc Edition console on February 23, and it usually restocks this version of the console every four weeks, which means we may see another drop very soon.
Pay attention to Amazon (or this live blog) every Wednesday: This is usually when the retailer likes to restock the PS5.
