If you're trying to find out what's going on with PS5 restock updates, then you've come to the right webpage. We've been hounding the retailers since before the console launched, trying to understand the ebbs and flows of PS5 stock drops. Thankfully, they've become much more frequent in recent weeks, meaning getting your hands on one is getting easier. Not completely effortless yet, but definitely more accessible. 

Bookmark this page and check it often for all the PS5 restock updates, for both the disc-friendly version and the slightly tweaked new PS5 Digital Edition model. We'll keep it fresh with the latest deals, where we expect stock to hit next, and we'll shout about both on social media too. 

You'll find all the major retailers that have offered the most PS5 restocks in recent months just below. 

We would heavily recommend sticking to these tried and tested stores, rather than heading over to resale sites. Scalpers are charging extortionate prices for the consoles they've managed to snap away from consumers over the last few months, and with more PS5 restocks on the way it's just not worth paying double the price today.

On our end, the only time we'll show you something over the basic asking price of the PS5 is if has some bundled extras, but as our lonely PS5 bundles page would attest, we'd just concentrate on trying to find the console on its own for now. Fingers crossed we won't be having to wait for November's Black Friday PS5 deals to find stock.

If you're able to bag one, be sure to head on over to our best PS5 accessories and best PS5 headsets guides to complete your setup.
