It's proving to be a hectic day for PS5 restocks. Game (opens in new tab) released a bumper crop this morning just after 9am, swiftly followed by Currys (opens in new tab) at midday. Both retailers sold out within an hour or so but there could be more to come today...
It seems like the first of several big PS5 restocks, dubbed "March Madness" on social media, have begun. Game's PS5 restock comprises 60% disc edition and 40% Digital Edition but was blighted by glitches, leaving many gamers to vent their fury on Twitter.
The good news is that Game and Currys are expected to restock again later today or this week.
According to one prominent tipster, "Due to the huge amount of bugs, Game will most likely re-release the stock that doesn't get sold either later today or later in the week." Fingers crossed.

Yesterday Amazon (opens in new tab) restocked although there was no sign of the rumoured AO.com restock.
Meanwhile, it was a familiar story at Argos (opens in new tab). The high street tech chain released a batch of PlayStation 5 consoles at 1am and 3am yesterday, but a website error left many gamers empty-handed.
Curious as to why Argos drops before dawn? "Almost every PS5 stock replenish has been around the same time," said an Argos spokesperson. "With less people online at this time the website runs smoother."
Sony's next-gen games console has been in short supply since launching back in November. Demand is being driven through the roof by a shortage of AMD chips, which power the PS5.
It's not all doom and gloom, though. Sony has revealed the PS Plus games for this month. Subscribers with a PS4 or PS5 will get Final Fantasy 7 Remake, a slicker new take on the classic RPG, and Remnant: From the Ashes, a third-person shooter set in space. PS5 owners get first-person shooter Maquette as an exclusive, plus there's a shooter called for the PSVR virtual reality headset called Farpoint.
