PS5 stock UK – live: Latest restocking news from Game, Amazon, Currys and more
The PS5 launched in November 2020, but supply issues and a global semiconductor shortage have slowed production of Sony’s next-gen console. New stock is always hard to find, and when it does show up, the PS5 sells out almost instantly.
August was one of the best months ever for the PS5 restocking, with several drops to Very, Smyths Toys, BT and EE, as well as availability at Argos, Amazon and Game. There were about 35 drops in total. September was also impressive, with declines to AO.com, As Studio, ShopTo, Currys PC World, BT, Smyths Toys, Game, Very and Argos everything happens. We’ve had six drops so far this week, but could we get more?
If you’re still looking for a PS5, you’ve come to the right place. Our liveblog is here to give you the latest information on Playstation 5 restockings from all major UK retailers, both online and in store, as well as providing details on release rumors, the latest PS5 games and accessories to buy.

Live PS5 Game Bundles (Again)
The PS5 is back in stock at Game for the second time today. These are most likely canceled orders, so don’t expect them to be in stock for very long.

Enter your local game store
I had trouble getting a PS5 from Game website this morning? We recommend that you visit your local store and request to be placed on the retailer’s pre-order waiting list. Each store operates a waiting list system, in which it assigns a set number of PS5s to those who are there per month.
We’ve also heard reports that some record and digital publishing consoles are chilling out in the backroom, so if you’re really lucky you might walk out of the store with a PS5 under your arm.

Need an Xbox Series X?
I managed to pack a PS5 from Game today? If you’re looking for the Xbox Series X as well, we recommend heading over to our Xbox Live Inventory Tracking blog, where we do the exact same thing there – i.e. trying to help you get a console.
While the X Series doesn’t appear to be in stock as often as the PS5, this month has been pretty nice to the console. Xbox drops happen quite unexpectedly and they sell out within minutes, so you’ll have to follow the blog if you want to be on top of restockings.

Top tips for restocking the PS5 game
There are 38 PS5 packs available, so you would expect consoles to be in stock for a long time. But that’s the PS5 we’re talking about. The fight is going to be fierce. We have a few tips for getting one from Game:
- Choose an obscure package. Don’t go for the cheapest, nor for the standalone console – both will sell out incredibly fast.
- Choose your PS5 Pack now and get ready to hit the pre-order button once we’ve given you the A-OK.
- Once you are in the queue, stay in the queue and do not refresh the page.

What time might PS5 Game Packs drop?
The last time Game had a restock earlier this month, things were a bit peculiar. While he usually drops off inventory between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m., he made us all wait until 11:45 a.m. before his mountain of bundles went live on the site. We don’t know if that will happen again today, but with confirmation of the retailer’s restocking this morning, we know it should start (at least) before noon.
Again, keep an eye on the blog and we’ll be releasing the second consoles online. You can see all PS5 packs here.

PS5 game packs will go live in the next hour
Game didn’t give us much notice this time around, but it’s official. Thirty-eight bundles are set to go live on the site, hopefully within the next hour. The retailer typically drops off stock between 9am and 11am, so keep an eye on the blog and we’ll let you know as soon as the consoles go live. Expect this replenishment to be pleasant and time consuming.
