A substantial new restock of the PlayStation 5 took place at Amazon today. This restock was one that customers were told about ahead of time and specifically involved the Digital Edition of the PS5. And while the PS5 itself has been available for nearly 18 months at this point in time, that hasn't prevented Sony's latest console from being any less difficult to acquire.
Not long after today's PS5 restock at Amazon kicked off, social media began to fill up with impressions from customers who were trying to secure the hardware for themselves. Sadly, despite Amazon having so many PS5 consoles to sell in this restock, the purchasing process for many still resulted in a complete mess. A number of customers reported that Amazon's landing page for the PS5 quickly crashed once the restock, which led to them being unable to add the console to their cart.
Perhaps the worst thing that happened to a number of people, though, is that Amazon was removing the PS5 from the carts of those who were able to add it. This error seemingly transpired because so many people were trying to buy the PS5 at once. Still, a vast number of customers were furious that the PS5 was vanishing from their carts even after they had thought that they were nearing the end of the buying process.

I haven't posted on Twitter in years, but just wanted to let @amazon know that PS5 Restock was absolutely atrocious. Y'all ought to be ashamed.— Ben Johnson (@JOHNSONBURGER) March 30, 2022

Prime Members Can't Even Gain Access
@amazon You should be ashamed of yourselves. Saying PS5 will be available for Prime members then not letting it go available unless you know a secret way to get into your cart. then when i did get into cart your page would error out! this is how you treat your prime members?— NickAKATidus (@AkaTidus) March 30, 2022
