Amazon has confirmed it will have PS5 Digital stock on Wednesday, March 30, 2022. This will be for Prime members only (get a 30-day trial here), and stock will be available from 8AM PT / 11AM ET (see at Amazon).
It’s actually quite unusual for Amazon to announce any kind of stock drop for the PS5, and normally just stealth announces it via a description change on the product page, or just drops the console altogether without any kind of warning. Whatever the case, set those alarms ready, and make sure you’re following @IGNDeals to get an instant stock update and link to the page when it goes live.

All-New PlayStation Subscription Announced
PlayStation Plus is getting a rework in June, and there will now be three separate tiers available to choose from. The most expensive is the Premium tier, including around 700 PlayStation games, costing $ 17.99 a month, or $ 119.99 paid annually.
With PlayStation Now merging into the new PlayStation Plus service, Sony has stated it “will no longer be available to buy standalone.” Any current PlayStation Now customers will therefore be migrated over to PlayStation Plus Premium with no increase to their current subscription fees at launch.
