PS5 stock UK: BIG PlayStation 5 restocking report for Argos, Game and Smyths | Games | Entertainment
According to the latest stock follower reports, May will be an important month for PS5 stock in the UK.
Having had to endure such disappointing weeks, with only a few offers on offer, players are hoping for better service next month.
And although there have been shipping delays causing difficult situations in the UK, May could see thousands of PS5 consoles offered by several major retailers.
From what has been shared so far, GAME will be one of the most promising places to buy a console, as the retailer is expected to have a significant restocking.
This could be split between at least two different dates, which will include units delayed from April.
And other storefronts should see refreshments as well, including Smyths Toys and Argos.
These are unlikely to be the only UK retailers to offer PS5 consoles in May, so gamers will want to keep an eye out for all the major stores.
The only downside to these latest reports is that these new PS5 gaming machines might take a while to hit digital tablets.
The week of May 10 could be the start of the wave, with Argos and GAME set to offer new bundle options.
Others are expected to follow, but it’s unclear at this point how many units will be included.
A recent report from PS5 Instant on Twitter indicates that GAME will have around 25,000 consoles for sale in May.
And with so many consoles coming to the store, we might even get an announcement of some sort to confirm it.
As usual, players will need to take this latest news with a pinch of salt until something official is announced.
PlayStation 5 consoles remain in high demand, and even with several significant stock drops expected in May, supply is unlikely to keep pace with demand.
Gamers have been repeatedly warned that it could be months before there are enough next-gen consoles for everyone, meaning some in the UK will be waiting until summer 2021.
Last Thursday was the last version of PlayStation 5, which came from Smyths Toys, including only the Digital Edition consoles.
The good news is that the next PS5 drop in stock will take place in May and will include delayed consoles that were due to arrive in April.
It’s important to know that more PlayStation stocks are coming, but console hunters should also know the best ways to get stock from each platform.
Here are some examples of the best way to try and buy a PlayStation 5 console from major UK retailers:
AMAZON UNITED KINGDOM: Amazon UK works best under power, but still has a few issues to mention. 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 heading out.
GAME: GAME is a UK retailer that offers the most regular stock updates for PS5 consoles. However, console hunters have been warned to use the Guest command, as this option is less likely to crash when finalizing a purchase. GAME is currently slated to get its next major replenishment in May 2021.
ARGOS: The Argos website is notorious for its crashes and inability to make purchases when site traffic is high. Stock trackers suggest using the Argos mobile app and keeping an eye on local store listings. Argos is not expected to receive any more shares until May 11.
