PS5 restock updates are all the rage in the days of stock being so limited you're more likely to be struck by lightning (not literally, but we'd reckon it's fairly close). Seriously though, we won't sugarcoat it: PS5 stock is very, very hard to come across these days, but that doesn't mean you should give up. On the contrary, now's the time to step up your game, and we've got just the tool you need.
Call us obsessed, but we've been keeping a close eye on PS5 stock since the console launched in November, and we've been able to identify some patterns and behaviors that should help you nab a console. We can't always tell you exactly when to buy a PS5, but we can usually point you in the direction of the right time and place.
While we typically have some sort of vague notion of when the next PS5 restock will happen, sometimes retailers decide to throw us a curveball and drop a bunch of consoles out of the blue. When that happens, we'll let you know as soon as we know.
We've included links to all the major retailers we expect to see with PS5 stock now or in the future, so you'll just be a couple clicks away from bagging Sony's new-gen hardware. So without further ado, here are the easiest links for PS5 restock updates in the US and UK:
- US PS5 stock most likely at: Amazon | Walmart | Target | Best Buy | GameStop
- UK PS5 stock most likely at: Amazon | Very | John Lewis | Argos | Currys | Box
We'd always advise going with stores sticking to the regular prices rather than giving in to the scalpers on online auction sites. Yes, the PS5 is lovely, but it's not worth paying over a grand for one. The only reason 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.
