UPDATE: The PS5 is still in stock at ShopTo and Game after selling to PlayStation Direct and Amazon. He could restock at curries later this week. Read on for more information.

It’s been a year and a half since the PS5 was first released, but we’re all still here, clinging to the dream of owning one of the elusive consoles.

Shelves remain sterile and empty, and restocks come and go in the blink of an eye thanks to the global shortage of semiconductors caused by the coronavirus pandemic. That means consoles are still hard to come by, both online and in stores.

But the situation is improving – slowly. April was one of the best months for restocks since the start of 2022, with 21 drops in total, we saw restocks from PlayStation Direct, ShopTo, Currys, Argos, AO, Game, Smyths Toys, Very and many more. other independent start-up retailers. As we move closer to summer, we expect May to continue this momentum, although it appears to be a calmer month so far.

Still on the hunt? Our live blog is here to bring you one of Sony’s elusive next-gen consoles, as well as provide details on the best games and accessories to grab with your new machine, plus the latest game reviews. If you want to know which online retailers will be restocking first, keep scrolling to get updates as they come.

Should Currys restock the PS5 soon?

We could see a PS5 restock at Currys this week. This would be the retailer’s first batch of new consoles this month, as the last restock ran from April 12-18. Prior to this, we were only seeing one restock per month for January, February, and March. It stands to reason that this trend will continue and we will see a replenishment before the end of May.

Currys tends to release new PS5 stock around the middle of the month, but predicting this with greater accuracy would be purely guesswork at this time.

How to buy a PS5 from Argos

Buying a PS5 from Argos is way harder than it should be. It has nothing to do with limited stock, as every retailer is suffering the fallout from the current global semiconductor shortage. But it’s more the way Argos makes its consoles available that’s frustrating.

You see, Argos technically has PS5 consoles available right now. But only in some of its stores, and the only way to find them is to enter random zip codes on the website until you get lucky. You may then also need to click the “change store” button and then the “happy to travel?” click on the “Tell me where” button to expand the search radius of your store.

We tried our London postcode today but couldn’t find any consoles. Then we moved to a West Yorkshire postcode, widened our search and found a single store in Altrincham with PS5 stock available. A few minutes later, the same search brought up availability in Blackburn instead. It’s all a bit painful. but if you know someone elsewhere in the UK who is willing to travel for a console, you might be in luck.

Or you can buy a pack from Game or ShopTo instead.

When will Amazon have another PS5 restock?

If you missed Amazon’s brief PS5 restock this morning, you’ll be eager to find out when the next console series arrives. Unfortunately, it’s hard to say with any real precision. Amazon last had a restock on April 27, and before that it was March 2 and 23 and February 23. Based on this track record, buyers shouldn’t expect to see more PS5 consoles on Amazon until late May or even June.

Amazon has been restocking at least once a month for over a year now, so hopefully more consoles will land at least in June, if not sooner.

Where is the PS5 available today?

In addition to a few packs still offered on ShopTo, PS5 consoles are available on Game. The console cannot be purchased on its own, but is instead offered as part of multiple bundles with Forbidden Horizon Westas well as designer accessories and clothing.

Of the bundles still available, prices range from £519.98 to £654.96. Instead of being offered through a pre-order system, as is often the case with Game, these bundles can be ordered for home delivery now.

Finally, some PS5 consoles are available from Argos. However, this is done on a store-by-store basis, so you’ll need to shop around the Argos website until you find a branch with PS5 consoles available for collection.

We saw a surprise restock of the PS5 on Amazon this morning, but as usual the consoles didn’t last long. About an hour later, starting at 9:45 a.m., the retailer is again sold out on both the PS5 disc and the PS5 digital editions. We’ve seen several reports of successful purchases on Twitter, but as always, this was an Amazon restock that didn’t last long.

Stock is coming to Amazon (briefly)

Amazon had a surprise PS5 restock this morning, with both the PS5 Disc and PS5 Digital Edition consoles available. However, as is often the case with Amazon restocks, the consoles sold out very quickly.

As far as we can see, the PS5 Digital Edition is sold out again, and only one example of the PS5 Disc Edition remains. We’ve had issues putting consoles in shopping carts, although some successes have been reported by shoppers on Twitter.
