PS5 Argos Stock Update: Will a Restock Happen This Week?

Getting a PS5 has been challenging to say the least, but the good news is that retailers like Argos have, on the whole, been delivering the goods with frequent restocks.

That being said, each retailer has a different approach to just how much information they share ahead of time, and in most cases...this tends to be very little. 

Much of the information nowadays comes from rumours, predictions, and of course, Twitter, where you'll find us doing our utmost to secure you a next-gen console.

We've got all the latest updates for Argos PS5 stock right here, plus everything that's happened before so you can put your detective skills to the test.

Argos PS5 Stock Update

Week commencing 5 April: After a relatively quiet Bank Holiday, eyes are starting to turn to Argos for the next drop...or at least, were.

@PS5StockAlertUK posted: "Argos has not received any shipments of stock over the weekend, or during weekdays last week."

It seems unlikely that we'll get an Argos drop anytime soon, but the question now turns to when will they receive the shipment?

We're on a high alert and will update you when we hear more.

Week commencing 29 March: The week saw a number of rumours which, for the most part, came true, however, there were still many retailers who we didn't see get in on the action despite our best hopes.

Amazon UK dropped in the morning, while we were still left waiting for the elusive John Lewis drop.

@PS5Instant has claimed that 'John Lewis has pallets of #PS5 in warehouses', however even if this is true, there's still no indication of when exactly the drop will come.

NEXT-GEN: Many are still waiting for the experience

Week commencing 15th March 2021: This week was full of rumours of huge stock drops, and while many of the retailers like Smyths, Very, and Currys didn't see PS5 stock drops, we did see a big Amazon UK restock, and a number of wins for our followers at Gfinity Deals,

The big question is, what will next week bring?

Which UK Retailers Stock PS5?

The good news is there are seemingly more chances than ever to grab a PS5 in the UK, with multiple retailers stocking the console.

We have individual pages for most of these retailers below, where you can check all the latest stock news.

Gfinity Deals Top Tips To Get A PS5

The more PS5 stock drops, the more we learn what to do and what not to do when it comes to getting securing the console.

We're by no means saying that these will guarantee you success, but it's worth doing them if you're not already to increase your chances.

Be prepared for a midnight drop

We've seen PS5 stock appear at some fairly inconvenient times, notably with Argos, who dropped stock in the middle of the night.

If there's a rumour circulating, we don't advise staying up, but if you're up already it could be worth being on high alert!

The Wishlist Technique

Amazon users have seen some good success with adding the PS5 to their wishlist and then purchasing from there.

It's a technique that appears to be making the rounds and could be well worth trying for yourself if you're on the hunt.

Pre-filling Account Details

More often than not, it comes down to mere seconds to get your PS5, and one way you can shave off sometimes is by making sure your account details are all ready to go on your selected retailer.

Go for the bundles!

This is perhaps the most important piece of advice and one that circulated around even when the PS5 was released initially.

Popularity for a bundle that comes with a shirt, extra controller, charging station and so on, is seemingly less than the standalone console. Head of that way to partially avoid the traffic! 

Best of luck everyone, and be sure to check back in for all the latest!
