PS5 UK stock LIVE – Very has 5,000 Playstation consoles in stock NOW as Smyths, EE & Asda all sell out


UK gamers, listen up – multiple UK retailers will be releasing fresh PlayStation 5 stock throughout the course of August with consoles available NOW.

Very has dropped a fresh batches of Sony’s new console THIS WEEK, with further restocks expected from today at Argos and John Lewis.

A huge Playstation 5 restock has long been predicted and it seems like we could finally see a regular supply of consoles on the shelves this month.

The PS5 was released nine months ago to critical acclaim but for millions of gamers it has proven extremely difficult to get hold of.

Thanks to parts shortages, coronavirus-related delays and then, incredibly, a giant container ship blocking the Suez Canal and holding up deliveries, supplies to the UK have been incredibly limited.

  • WHEN WAS THE PS5 RELEASED?

    The PS5 release date landed on November 12 in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea.

    In the UK, gamers weren’t able to get their hands on it until November 19.

    The PS5 proper costs £449.99/$499.99, while the digital edition comes in at $399/£359.

  • GAME OVER?

    THE PlayStation 5 will be “almost impossible” to get hold of as demand for the console skyrockets in the coming months, according to some doom-mongering experts.

    An analysis carried out by TechRadar suggests that US and UK retailers will in October see a surge in the number of shoppers looking to buy Sony’s next-gen machine.

    That’s due to the fact that millions of parents will want to buy their children a PS5 in the weeks leading up to the Christmas holiday. Rising demand will be compounded by the arrival of Black Friday and Cyber Monday in November.

    “In two months’ time, it’s going to become much harder when parents wake up to the fact that they need this console to fulfill their child’s Christmas wish list,” TechRadar wrote.

    “Even if Sony were to ramp up the supply of PS5 Disc and PS5 Digital consoles, demand will skyrocket right before Black Friday and Cyber Monday.”

  • WHAT IS THE PS5?

    The PS5 is Sony’s latest and greatest gaming console. It’s the successor to the PS4 and PS4 Pro, and is available in two distinct versions.

    Those are the pricey PS5 proper with all the bells and whistles, and the digital edition, which is cheaper but with no disc tray.

    Both consoles came out in November 2020 with an impressive roster of launch games.

    And they’re going head-to-head with Microsoft’s next-gen consoles, the  Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.

    Like Sony, Microsoft has opted to launch two machines: A full-works console with a higher price tag and a cheaper one without a disc tray.
