A ‘massive’ PS5 stock update could be on the cards this week, some media are reporting.

John Lewis, Smyths and GAME are amongst a handful of the retailers who have received stock this month – but according to stock watchers, more are planned.

@PS5StockAlertUK said: "Amazon UK will be dropping beginning of next week (15th-17th) & Smyths Toys to drop end of next week (18th-20th)."


Amazon, Smyths and Currys are all poised to reportedly have Sony's flagship console on sale this week. For those waiting to grab one from GAME, you may need to wait a while. The retailer confirmed they’ll be restocking on Friday, March 26.

As cited in the Birmingham Mail, the stock tracker confirmed: "UPDATE: Possible restocks starting from tomorrow: Amazon : 15-18th March (9am-2pm) Smyths : 18-20th March (1pm-9pm) Currys: 15-18th March (7am-10am)."

One of the larger drops will be at Currys, where you need to sign up to a Priority Pass before then acquiring a PS5 buying code which is valid for 72 hours.

But the big question is, who's next! Well, it looks like Amazon may be just around the corner, so it's best to stay on high alert.
