PS5 UK stock: The final PlayStation April 5 restocking avoiding Argos and GAME? | Games | Entertainment
April has turned out to be a horrible month of trying to buy a next-gen console in the UK, with limited stock leaving many players unable to cope with a digital queue.
And there are no guaranteed drops in PS5 stocks left for UK gamers, although one store has given hope for the final weeks of April.
While there is always a chance for a surprise PlayStation 5 restock over the next few days, Smyths is one of the only retailers to suggest they have something to share before May.
The official Smyths Toys website reveals that the PS5 Digital Edition is currently out of stock but is expected to be back in stock in April.
Meanwhile, the same site has been updated to confirm that the PS5 disc player will not be back in stock until May 2021.
The difference in information shared on the two pages suggests that the final drop in inventory will include Smyths and the digital PS5.
We don’t know when this fabulous drop in inventory will arrive, or how many consoles will be included.
And as always, Smyths could always update their site to delay this drop, which could leave players waiting another week or two.
Meanwhile, other retailers like Argos and Game are not expected to offer big stock drops for the rest of the month.
The latest news from the Argos support team is that more next-gen consoles are on the way, but don’t provide any type of ETA or countdown timer.
“We are working hard to replenish the PS5 / Xbox Series X stock at the moment,” read a post shared by Argos on Twitter.
“Please keep an eye on our website, where you will find the most recent information on current stock availability.”
The only advantage of these latest delays is that there should be a sharp drop in inventory in May.
UK retailers who were unable to purchase PlayStation 5 consoles in April due to supply delays will have a better chance next month.
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.
