Thousands of PlayStation 5 consoles were made available to buy this week, and it looks like more PS5 stock is on the way.
Reliable stock tracker accounts have been keeping gamers informed about what is coming next from UK retailers.
This included the latest stock drops from Argos, Currys, Amazon ASDA, Littlewoods and GAME.
And from what has been shared by the same sources, the new PlayStation 5 consoles will be shipped by Amazon, GAME and Very.
According to the PS5 Instant Twitter account, Amazon UK could release thousands of new consoles next week.
This will technically be one of the first restock events for June, but it won’t be the last.
Smyths has confirmed that it will be releasing new stock next month, as will Very and GAME.
Based on what has been shared so far, the new PS5 Amazon stock will be dropping between June 2 and June 9.
Meanwhile, Very is expected to release its next shipment closer to the end of June, with GAME also linked with a drop next month.
A message from PS5 Instant explains: “GAME receiving PS5 stock first week June. ~9000 Disc PS5s & 6200 Digital PS5s.
“Next major PS5 restock shipment for Very is due the third week of June. Next Amazon PS5 UK releases 2nd – 9th June (10k units).”
There could also be one final PS5 stock drop during May 2021, although it’s unclear at this time exactly when.
Stock trackers suggest it could arrive between today and June 2 and will be made available through the website. It appears these latest next-gen consoles will be made available as pre-orders, meaning they won’t arrive until sometime in June.
Finding out that more PlayStation stock is coming is important, but console hunters should also know the best ways to get stock from each platform.
Here are a few examples of how best to try and buy a PlayStation 5 console from leading UK retailers:
GAME: GAME is a UK retailer that offers the most regular stock updates for PS5 consoles. However, console hunters have been warned to use Guest Checkout, as this option is less likely to crash when completing a purchase. GAME recently restocked the PS5 and is now out of stock again.
ARGOS: The Argos website is notorious for crashing and being unable to complete purchases when site traffic is high. Stock trackers suggest using the mobile Argos app and keeping an eye on local store listings. Argos is not expected to receive any more stock until June.
CURRYS: Currys have not been sharing a lot of stock during May but has been supplying consoles via a new system. This includes signing up for the Currys VIP Pass, which means heading over to the website and using an email address. If you do this, you have a chance of buying a PS5 console from a store, within a 72-hour window.
AMAZON UK: Amazon UK runs better under strain but still comes with a few kinks worth mentioning. Having an account set up with your card details is a good start, and gamers should also try adding a console to their wishlist before checking out. Amazon is expected to release new stock early in June.
