UPDATE THREE: The PS5 is believed to be coming back in stock at GAME again this week, with a restock tipped for Thursday July 22 between 9am and 11am.

And ahead of the next PS5 restock PlayStation fans have been delivered an update.

The @PS5Instant Twitter said the next GAME PS5 restock should include 6,000 digital consoles and 4,000 disc systems.

The PS5 stock tracker account added this will be the last chance to buy the PS5 Digital console before Sony releases a revised version that’s lighter.

The @PS5Instant Twitter posted: “GAME #PS5Restock tomorrow (8-10am) – last chance to get Sony’s original weight Digital #PS5. They have received approximately 6K digital & 4K disc.”

UPDATE TWO: Despite the ongoing PS5 stock shortages there are signs the situation is turning around.

VGChartz has revealed in a post online its latest estimated hardware figures for around the world.

And not only has the PS5 managed to sell double of what the Xbox Series X and S sold for the week leading to July 10, but the PS5 also managed to outsell the Switch in Europe.

This is despite the Switch being consistently in stock, while the PS5 you have to plan in advance for any potential restock.

Elsewhere, VGChartz has revealed that the PS5 has managed to hit the 10million sales marker quicker than the PS4 did. This in spite of stock shortages since the PS5 launched last November.

ORIGINAL: GAME could start taking orders for the PS5 once again shortly.

According to the reliable @PS5StockAlertUK Twitter account, pre-orders for the next PS5 GAME restock – which has a release date of July 30 – will be going live this week.

And today the PS5 stock tracker account has revealed the exact time and date stock hunters need to mark in their diairies.

According to @PS5StockAlertUK, GAME will start taking orders for the PS5 once again on Thursday July 22 between 9am and 11am BST.

The PS5 stock Twitter account posted: “PlayStation 5 (GAME) Exclusive News!

“GAME will be going live with 8-10K PlayStation 5’s on: Thursday 22nd July (9-11am)

“If you select Priority delivery method, your order will be shipped by the 27th July, all other delivery method orders will be shipped by the 2nd August.”

The GAME PS5 website was updated last week, adding new PlayStation 5 pre-order purchase options and listing the next batch of stock as getting a July 30 release date.

Over the weekend this PS5 order page was updated, removing all listings for the PS5 Disc edition.

But in the run-up to this week’s PS5 GAME restock the retailer’s PlayStation 5 order page has received another update.

At the time of writing, GAME has 26 different purchase options listed – including PS5 Disc and PS5 Digital consoles.

Standalone PlayStation 5 systems are available to buy, while there are also a range of bundles listed.

The cheapest PS5 Digital bundle costs £389.98 and includes a console, T-shirt and hat. While the most expensive PS5 Digital bundle costs £539.96 and includes a PS5 Digital console, tee, cap as well as an extra DualSense controller and Pulse 3D headset.

The cheapest PS5 Disc bundle at GAME costs £519.98 and includes a PS5 console and a copy of Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart. The most expensive PS5 Disc bundle costs £631.96 and includes a PS5 console, extra DualSense controller as well as a copy of Ratchet & Clank and another unmissable PS5 exclusive – Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales.

If you’re looking to increase your chances of getting an order in with the next GAME restock then you’re more likely to get a PS5 bundle than a standalone PS5 console.

The standalone consoles tend to sell out quickest out GAME.

It’s also been reported that using guest checkout can increase your chance of picking up stock, and if possible using multiple devices (i.e smartphone and laptop) can also help.

The upcoming GAME PS5 restock comes hot on the heels of another PS5 stock drop at Argos, which went live on Wednesday July 21.

The Argos PS5 restock went live around 8am UK time on July 21. Alerting its followers to the PS5 stock drop, the @PS5StockAlertUK Twitter posted: “The #PS5 is now in stock at Argos!

“Collection only. Delivery not available.”

The account went on to add: “You can checkout straight on the Argos website!”
