Amazon has introduced a new invite-only system for PS5 restock – one that should finally give you a better chance of buying the mega-retailer’s PS5 if all your previous attempts have ended in failure. Even better, you also don’t need to be an Amazon Prime member to register your details.
All you need to do to sign up is go to the PS5 store page on Amazon (opens in new tab). Log into your account and then you will see the option to request an invite where the add to cart button is usually found.
Hit that and Amazon will email you a unique link to buy the PS5 the next time the console is in stock. Be aware, however, that the link is only active for 72 hours and does not guarantee a console as they cannot service every request. We expect the PS5 to sell out very early in this window of time, so you’ll need to move quickly when you get the alert. At least it’s a lot better than the randomly timed free-for-alls that Amazon usually keeps for the PS5 every couple of months.

Registration is only open for the standard PS5 console at the moment and it’s unclear if it will be added to the PS5 Digital Edition. Amazon said, however, that it will soon add the option to sign up for alerts for the upcoming Xbox Series X restock as well. Microsoft’s console isn’t in high demand like the PS5, but it’s still a challenge to get one. Perhaps having these systems in place bodes well for some extra console stock on Amazon Prime Day as well.
The new PS5 restock system on Amazon is very similar to the one implemented by Sony’s own PlayStation Direct store, which asks would-be buyers to register their details for the chance to buy a PS5 console when it’s next in stock. If you haven’t registered your name yet, here’s how to sign up for PS5 alerts in PlayStation Direct too.
We’ve also taken a look at all the latest PS5 deals available right now, where you can find cheap PS5 games as well as the best prices for all the most sought-after PS5 accessories. This includes some of the offers still available in this year’s Days of Play promotion, which ends June 8.
