It launched a week earlier in the US, where units vanished almost instantly.
However, the retail giant has warned that it will be “limited” – so you’ll probably need to act fast.
According to Amazon, new PS5 stock will be added online from noon UK time.

“We will make every effort to deliver all orders as soon as possible,” said Amazon in a email to customers.
“If you order, we will email you with an estimated delivery date.
“However, this may be subject to change.”
That’s important, as even if Amazon says your package should arrive in time for Christmas – it might not.
Even some Amazon pre-order customers were dismayed to learn that their new Xbox Series X consoles might arrive after December 25.

PS5 review verdict
Here’s an excerpt from The Sun’s PS5 review…
The PS5 is a wonderful but tricky beast for me.
On the one hand, I think it’s too big and bold – especially for something taking pride-of-place in your living room.
The Xbox Series X has it beat on design, honestly.
But the PS5 is so incredible in so many ways, not least its hefty graphical output.
The roster of launch games, exclusives and titles to come are brilliant, and very hard to beat.
Sony’s DualSense controller is an absolute delight and makes the new Xbox joypad look like a total bore.
And it’s extremely powerful – you’d struggle to build a similarly proficient gaming PC for the price.
There’s the looming question of how much life consoles have left in them: games are moving to the cloud and can be streamed to even budget devices.
PC gaming, too, offers better performance and a wider array of titles to enjoy.
But even if this is a last hurrah from consoles, it’s a bloody brilliant one.
You might balk at the £449/$499 price tag, but it’s a miracle it’s that cheap, all things considered.
The Sun says: Look past its gargantuan form and you’ll find the PS5 is a console masterpiece – with stunning graphics, a truly next-gen controller and loads of must-have games on offer. 4.5/5
The PS4 came out way back in 2013, so a sequel is long overdue.
Sony’s PlayStation 5 marks a new generation of gaming consoles – with stunningly detailed 4K and 8K graphics.
The console has a space-age design and extremely powerful hardware, which is why you’ll pay £449/$499 for the luxury of owning one.
There’s a cheaper version of the PS5 with no disc tray that shaves £100/$100 off the price. Consider buying it if you’re not bothered by downloading all your games, and losing the ability to resell them after use.
All prices in this article were correct at the time of writing, but may have since changed. Always do your own research before making any purchase.
In other news, The Sun’s favourite alternative to a games console is the Oculus Quest 2 VR headset.
Grab a VR headset and you’ll be able to play the legendary Beat Saber – like Guitar Hero, but with lightsabers.
And Dell’s Alienware R10 Ryzen Edition is a gaming PC powerhouse that crushes both the new consoles.
