Amazon made many PS5 hunters happy again in May. But one package is currently causing headaches. Is there another supply drop coming?
Update of 05/05/2022, 07:40: So what’s up with the Amazon bundle of PS5 Disc Edition and the Horizon Forbidden West game? Well, many PS5 hunters are currently scratching their heads over this. First, we encourage you to keep watching this Horizon bundle on Amazon this morning. And in case you were wondering why:
Yesterday, April 4, there was already a drop from the shipping giant at Amazon’s usual time, but surprisingly “only” the PS5 Digital Edition was resold. We expected the bare disc version or the said Horizon bundle. Because this was re-uploaded shortly before after a few weeks and reappeared with a Prime rating (rating line still available – as of May 5, 2022, 7:40 a.m.). To the surprise of many PS5 hunters, the bundle hasn’t sold out yet.
But since it surfaced yesterday, 5/4, with said notice, some believe it’s possible it could still sell accordingly today if Amazon sticks to its usual drop pattern ( main notice the day before the decline). But this is currently pure speculation. Also, Amazon hasn’t sold on Thursdays, at least not recently.
In short: This is a somewhat unusual development. It’s still unclear what that means and when or if the Horizon bundle will be sold on Amazon again. Some also believe that a drop on Wednesday next week is possible. This morning, however, you should keep an eye on it between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. to be on the safe side, in case the train arrives.
By the way, there are currently opportunities for new console supplies from other retailers. For a complete overview of the current supply situation and all relevant developments regarding the PlayStation 5, we therefore recommend that you take a look at our PS5 live ticker.
Buy PS5: So far no 2nd wave on Amazon
Update of 04/05/2022, 1:43 p.m.: Again as an addendum, why you shouldn’t completely cancel the Horizon bundle at Amazon – at least until tomorrow morning:
The Prime notice usually appears the day before a fall, usually the night before. Today the package hint apparently appeared overnight – but still only TODAY, that is May 4th. If Amazon continues to stick with the usual drop pattern, the bundle might not actually be released until tomorrow, May 5th. will drop – as usual, a day after the notification line appears.
We therefore recommend that you watch Amazon closely tomorrow morning between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. to be on the safe side. Maybe said package will come into play there after all.
Update of 04/05/2022, 11:00 a.m.: Meanwhile, it almost seems like no second wave is being sold on Amazon today. Consoles are usually sold here in the morning and there was radio silence for over an hour. But we don’t want to completely rule out another drop just yet. More than waiting doesn’t help now.
Update of 04/05/2022, 09:52: The wait for the PS5 bundle continues. The whole thing is very weird because that’s where the Prime notice appeared tonight. This is a clear sign that this very lot is sold. So far, however, this has not happened.
Update of 05/04/2022, 09:43: Still no news regarding the release of the PS5 on Amazon. So far, only the digital edition has surfaced. Stay alert.
Buy PS5: Digital version available on Amazon
Update of 05/04/2022, 09:26: Now the digital sale seems to be over. It is also important to keep an eye on the disc edition and the bundle. There could be a hit here.
Update of 04/05/2022, 09:21: According to reports, some orders are still in progress at Digital Edition. So it is always worth updating the product page diligently.
Update of 04/05/2022, 09:18: The digital edition seems finished for the moment. Now you should keep an eye on the disc edition and the bundle. It could continue here.
Update of 05/04/2022, 09:10: The console is here! Under the “All offers” tab to the right of the image, you will find Amazon’s offer for 399 euros. Here is the link to the drop:
- Buy the PS5 Digital Edition on Amazon*
Update of 05/04/2022, 09:04: So far, the calm before the storm has prevailed here. As of 9:00 a.m., Amazon is hot, but no consoles are available yet. We’ll let you know as soon as the PS5 becomes available. Be sure to stay tuned!
Update of 05/04/2022, 08:48: And here are again the most important links in case of drop:
- Buy the disc version of the PS5 on Amazon*
- Buy Sony PlayStation 5 + Horizon Forbidden West on Amazon*
Also consider: Amazon Prime is mandatory again!
Update of 04/05/2022, 08:24: Another tip, if it should really fall: Don’t forget that you have to select the console or the bundle by clicking on “All offers” on the right if it is there. Make sure that the offer then comes from Amazon itself and that you cannot accidentally click on a third-party supplier.
Update of 05/04/2022, 08:25: Another tip, if it should really fall: Don’t forget that you have to select the console or the bundle by clicking on “All offers” on the right if it is there. Make sure that the offer then comes from Amazon itself and that you cannot accidentally click on a third-party supplier.
Update of 05/04/2022, 08:09: When Tip: It’s best to put the PS5 bundle (as well as the disc version, to be sure) on your Amazon wishlist now. If there is indeed a drop right away and later there are problems or too much work on the product pages, you can try to put the corresponding PS5 product in the cart. It’s also better to use a browser and not the official Amazon app, because you can update product pages there faster.
Update of May 4, 2022, 7:20 a.m.: There were rumors yesterday that Amazon could drop today. Several insiders have said that the disc version of the PS5 should be sold. And indeed: it sure does look like Amazon will be bringing supplies again today – but apparently not in the form of the bare-disc version.
Instead, the mandatory notice for Prime members has now been spotted under a bundle – consisting of the Sony PlayStation 5 with drive and the Horizon Forbidden West game. Unlike the Ratchet & Clank bundle (the rating is permanent) and the PS5 Digital Edition (the rating is still there from the last drop), the Horizon bundle didn’t see Prime notice until recently. It could therefore well be that instead of the pure disc version, this bundle is used today.
So be sure to keep an eye on Amazon today, it might actually drop there today. The Horizon Bundle in particular should then become interesting. But the pure disc version of the PS5, which insiders were originally talking about, should also be observed as a precaution. Amazon generally sells on Wednesdays between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.
Original message of May 3, 2022: Hamburg, Germany – Along with MediaMarkt, Saturn, and OTTO, Amazon is one of the four largest and most important PS5 vendors in Germany. The shipping giant is a true restock guarantee and regularly helps thousands of hungry PS5 hunters secure Sony’s long-awaited latest console. Just recently, the online giant dropped into three countries in one day, selling the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition with us. But it looks like other supplies could follow directly.

Buy PS5: Amazon drop rumors in early May – this time with disc edition
When was the last time you were able to buy the PS5 from Amazon? The PS5 was last available on Amazon on April 27. On this day, the shipping giant sold the coveted console in three countries – in Germany, Great Britain and France. We were only offering the PS5 Digital Edition – but that felt like a great deal.
Here’s how it’s currently doing with new PS5 supplies on Amazon: The PlayStation 5 is currently not available on Amazon. The mandatory Prime notice is also not visible (except permanently with the “Ratchet & Clank” bundle). You can only buy a few accessories there at the moment, BUT:
Please treat this with the necessary caution, but several insiders in the PS5 hunter scene are currently talking about the possibility of Amazon DE selling the disc version of the PS5 as early as next Wednesday (i.e. tomorrow May 4th). . Yesterday, some of the big names in the scene said they thought another short-term decline at Amazon DE was likely. Because here in Germany only the digital edition was offered with the last drop, but in other countries (which had dropped on the same day) there was also the PlayStation 5 with a disc player. If the rumor is true, Amazon will apparently send the disc version back to us.
The truth in this rumor cannot be seriously estimated at this time. However, it wouldn’t be the first time such an insider tip from the scene has come true. And by this evening at the latest, the corresponding Prime notice should appear on Amazon anyway and then provide clarity. So keep an eye out for the shipping giant and especially the PS5 with a disc drive today (because of the Prime rating).
The most important links to the PS5 on Amazon: If Amazon were indeed to drop tomorrow, below are the links to the most important PS5 products. The PS5 Disc Edition should be of particular interest.
Buy PS5: important for buying consoles on Amazon
You should note that: Amazon has been selling the PS5 exclusively to Prime subscribers for some time. Prime members then usually see a notification on the corresponding PS5 consoles a day before a drop and can then exclusively purchase the PS5 the following day. With a probability close to certainty, this should also apply to the next sale, that is to say perhaps as early as tomorrow, May 4th.
If you’re not a Prime member, that’s not necessarily a problem. Because Amazon Prime can be tested for free for 30 days (if you haven’t already taken advantage of this offer). As soon as the Prime notice appears, you can simply end the trial subscription, then hopefully secure the console and then simply cancel Amazon Prime.
Here is another tip: Put the PS5 Digital Edition on your Amazon wishlist now. If there is indeed a drop tomorrow and it causes issues or load on the product pages, you can try putting the corresponding PS5 product in the cart. It’s also better to use a browser and not the official Amazon app because you can update product pages there faster.
