The message posted on Twitter by PS5 Stock UK reads: “A few warehouses have received shipments of PS5’s, both Disc & Digital Editions, with the remaining warehouses expected to receive shipments by the end of this week. Sales to the public are expected around 20th October.”
Knowing when a PS5 restock is happening can be vital, but it’s also worth knowing how each retailer handles its shipments.
And here are a few examples of how best to try and buy a PlayStation 5 console from leading UK retailers:
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. New PS5 stock is expected to arrive on October 20.
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.
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. The latest GAME restock arrived on October 12 and has now sold out.
