PS5 Stock UK: Will We See Another Drop Before The Weekend?

When it comes to getting a PS5, it's important to be in the know with all the latest UK news surrounding stock updates, especially when there seem to be new rumours almost every day!

The hunt for PS5 since its release in November has proved fruitful to some, but frustrating to others, so we're on hand to share everything we know so you can increase your chances.

Of course, speed is everything, and Twitter is proving a valuable tool in securing PS5 as quickly as possible. We'll always recommend that you follow @GfinityDealsUK, but it's also worth checking out other accounts to increase your chances.

At the end of the day, this is about getting YOU a PS5, so let's dive in and take a look at the latest stock updates in the UK.

PS5 Stock UK Latest News

UPDATE 15 October: Yesterday Currys PC World sent out VIP codes, allowing people that had previously registered to make in-store pre-orders.

Codes were sent out between 5 pm yesterday and 10 am this morning, they must be redeemed in-store by 19 October.

If you weren't lucky enough to receive a code from Currys PC World, you can still register your interest with EE for another chance at getting your hands on a PS5.

Otherwise, there hasn't been much action in the world of PS5 stock, of course, there is always a chance of a surprise drop before the weekend.

We'll be back soon with more updates.

UPDATE 14 October: So far today there has been little action in the world of PS5 stock releases, with no drops taking place.

As mentioned before, PS5 Stock UK on Twitter has claimed that John Lewis could release stock on 15 October.

If this is accurate, John Lewis tends to release stock early in the morning, between 8 - 10 am, so be sure to stay on high alert during that time in case a drop does go ahead.

Otherwise, It has now been one month since major retailer Very went live with stock, after a prolonged period of silence, we're hoping they may announce something soon, but so far there has been no news from them.

October so far has been a relatively quiet month, although we may be experiencing the calm before the storm, as retailers attempt to restock behind the scenes.

This may be wishful thinking on our behalf of course, although we hope to see more action before the month is up.

We'll be sure to update you with all the latest, until then, be sure to follow @GfinityDealsUK on Twitter.

UPDATE 13 October: Congratulations to those that managed to secure a PS5 from GAME yesterday, for the rest of us that are still searching, it looks like there could be more stock on the horizon.

On Twitter, PS5 Stock UK has claimed that John Lewis could release stock around 15 October and that Argos have received a shipment of PS5's and will go live with sales around 20 October.

However, we haven't had any official word from either of these retailers and therefore cannot confirm how accurate this is.

Otherwise, you can register your interest for a PS5 at EE, and they will then notify you when back in stock.

It seems as we get further into the month, we're seeing more potential movements for PS5 stock and we're hoping to see even more retailers follow suit.

Good luck, we'll be back soon with all the latest.

UPDATE 12 October:

(UPDATE) GAME has dropped at 9.45am - check GAME PS5 stock here.

When it comes to stock drops, typically we see retailers almost restock out of the blue, however with one store in particular we've started getting more of a heads up.

It looks like GAME will be dropping this morning thanks to a helpful post on Twitter from the company itself, so we'll share the link as soon as it goes live over at Gfinity Deals UK.

Things to remember with PS5 drops at GAME? Well, what you'll want to do is head for the bundles, as they'll be a little more expensive, but appear to be less in demand. Sure, you may get an extra PS5 shirt, but who cares when you can game in 4K at 120fps!

Remember that timing is everything, so don't forget to set your notifications so you can be alerted when it goes down.

Check back in with us today if you happen to get one for all the other PS5 gear to make the most out of your new console, like the latest HDMI 2.1 monitors, or even the best internal storage expansion options.

Best of luck out there!

UPDATE 11 October: Over the weekend, ShopTo released stock on Saturday evening and now, as we enter a new week, we look forward to more potential drops heading our way.

Advertisement

On Twitter, PS5 Stock UK have claimed that GAME will be going live with stock most likely either today or tomorrow.

If a drop does go ahead, from previous experience, it is likely to take place in the morning between 8 - 10 am, so be sure to stay on high alert.

Otherwise, we have yet to hear any official word from retailers about upcoming stock releases, hopefully, we will hear soon and we could potentially have an eventful week or two ahead of us.

We'll be back soon with all the latest, in the meantime, be sure to follow @GfinityDealsUK on Twitter.

UPDATE 8 October: Typically Friday tends to be the quietest day of the week when it comes to PS5 stock releases and as we approach the weekend it looks like that's proving to be the case.

This week so far we have seen very little action for PS5 drops with only BT and Smyths Toys releasing any stock, however, the week before proved to be very eventful.

Therefore we hope that retailers are restocking behind the scenes following on from the drops that took place at the end of last month.

If retailers have been taking this time to restock it is likely that we will receive updates after the weekend about upcoming drops.

We'll be sure to update you as soon as we hear anything, in the meantime be sure to follow @GfinityDealsUK on Twitter for all the latest.

UPDATE 7 October: Today it remains a little quiet on the PS5 stock front, however, we're hoping things will start to pick up fairly soon.

According to PS5 Stock UK on Twitter, GAME and John Lewis are still due to go ahead with stock next week.

If this is accurate, based on previous drops, it is likely these retailers will release stock early in the morning between 8 - 10 am.

There is also a chance that other retailers may currently be restocking behind the scenes and looking to release stock next week similarly to GAME and John Lewis, though we have yet to receive any official word on this.

We'll be back shortly to update you with all the latest.

UPDATE 6 October: Aside from the Smyths Toys drop yesterday it has been largely quiet on the PS5 stock front.

From what we've seen in the past, the beginning of the month tends to be a quieter period as retailers restock behind the scenes.

Although we have had no official word on this, from previous experience, it is likely that many retailers are currently restocking and we hope to see announcements soon.

Be sure to stay on high alert until then in case of any surprise announcements, we'll be back soon with more updates.

UPDATE 5 October: As expected BT went live with stock yesterday morning, releasing the console alongside various bundles for those with an access code.

Yesterday evening Smyths Toys announced that they will be going live with in-store pre-orders from today once stores are open.

According to PS5 Stock UK on Twitter, many stores opened at 8:30 this morning specifically for PS5 pre-orders.

If you didn't manage to get there this morning, there may be a chance that some stock will still be available although there is no guarantee.

So far, there hasn't been any official news of drops taking place in the next few days, however, there is always a chance of a surprise drop so keep your eyes peeled.

We'll be back soon with all the latest.

UPDATE 4 October: Over the weekend we saw little action in regards to PS5 stock, however, as we enter this new week, we hope to see more releases coming our way.

According to PS5 Stock UK on Twitter, BT is due to go live with PS5 consoles on either 4 or 5 October, however, there has been no official word on this.

If a drop does go ahead, BT will email codes to those that have registered interest, you will then be able to use this code to make a purchase, although it is not guaranteed that you will get one.

PS5 Stock UK have also suggested that we could see a drop from Very, Smyths Toys and ShopTo sometime in the coming days, however, this is speculation based on previous stock releases and again, there has been no official word on this.

Advertisement

Otherwise, GAME is still due to release on 11 October, as stated on their bundle's page, hopefully, we will hear more from other retailers soon.

Until then, best of luck and be sure to follow @GfinityDealsUK for all the latest.

UPDATE 1 October: As a new month begins, we look forward to more exciting drops heading our way.

So far today, AO dropped again making it two consecutive days in a row, this time releasing two Disc Edition bundles.

One bundle included the console, a spare controller and Ratchet & Clank while the other featured the console, pulse 3D headset and Ghost of Tsushima.

AO didn't make it easy, PS5 Stock UK on Twitter even had to include instructions to follow in order to obtain one and even with the complex purchasing system, they still sold out in minutes.

Otherwise, it is a little quiet on the PS5 stock front as we head into the weekend, though there is always the potential for a surprise drop.

Advertisement

GAME has listed 11 October on their bundle's page for the next release day, although this is 10 days away, stay on high alert as it may change because they sometimes release stock sooner than expected.

We'll be back soon with all the latest, be sure to follow @GfinityDealsUK to keep up to date in the meantime.

UPDATE 30 September: This week is proving to be eventful as more stock drops took place earlier today.

As anticipated Argos went live with stock, releasing both Disc and Digital versions of the console, this again sold out in minutes and many people were left empty-handed.

Alongside this, there was a surprise drop from Studio and AO, as they released various bundles including Pulse 3D wireless headset, Ghost of Tsushima, Ratchet & Clank and more.

This week has been full of surprises so we may even see more later today or tomorrow, however, there has been no official word of any drops in the next couple of days.

Good luck, we'll be back soon to update you with all the latest.

Advertisement

UPDATE 29 September: We have already seen some more movements today including a stock release from GAME and a surprise drop from Amazon.

GAME featured both Disc and Digital versions of the console and a multitude of bundles including games such as FIFA 22, Ratchet & Clank, Spider-man Miles Morales and more.

Both GAME and Amazon sold out in mere minutes as always, congratulations to those that managed to get their hands on one.

For the rest of us still searching, stay on high alert as there is still a chance that Argos may drop this week and it is possible for there to be another surprise drop at any moment too.

Be sure to stay glued to @GfinityDealsUK for all the latest.

UPDATE 28 September: More action this morning as EE dropped with both the Disc and Digital versions of the console available alongside various bundles.

Don't worry, if you didn't manage to grab one earlier, PS5StockAlertUK on Twitter has claimed that Argos will be releasing stock sometime between 28 September and 1 October.

Advertisement

PS5StockAlertUK has also suggested that if a drop does go-ahead from Argos, it will mainly be Disc versions of the console available with only a very limited amount of Digitial consoles up for grabs.

If this is accurate, for your best chance at getting your hands on a PS5 from Argos, we'd say go for the Disc version as there should be more of them in stock.

We still have no official word from GAME however, we could potentially see a drop from both GAME and Argos by the end of the week so be sure to keep your eyes peeled.

Good luck and as always stay tuned to @GfinityDealsUK for all the latest.

UPDATE 27 September: As we kick off the new week, we have already seen some exciting movements for PS5 stock.

ASDA released stock this morning just before 9 am, as always, this sold out in mere minutes, leaving many of us still on the search for the elusive PS5.

PS5StockAlertUK on Twitter have claimed that GAME will be releasing PS5 bundles with FIFA 22 this Friday (1 October), however, there seems to be no official announcement from GAME on this matter.

Advertisement

After a few surprise drops last week be sure to stay glued to @GfinityDealsUK on Twitter for all the latest.

UPDATE 24 September: Friday's here, and despite it typically being the quietest day of the week for stock drops, there are some rumblings which have caught our attention.

According to PS5 Stock UK, Argos has received shipments to their warehouses nationwide.

What does that mean? Well, according to them this could spell a drop towards the end of the month, between 29th September to 1st October by their predictions.

If Argos does go ahead, you'll want to be ready for anything, as the retailer has been known to drop at surprising times...on many occasions in the early hours of the morning.

We'll be back with you soon with more updates.

UPDATE 23 September: After a 6 week long drought, Amazon finally dropped in the UK, and it looks like a number of our readers were in luck!

Advertisement

But for those who didn't manage to snag one this time around, there may still be a few chances before the month is up.

Last week, PS5 Stock UK tweeted that a GAME drop will likely be 'between 21st-23rd September'. GAME drops typically occur around 10 am - 12 pm, however, they do normally announce when they're going to be going live.

Speed will be everything, so make sure your notifications are switch on. We'll be on high alert over here at Gfinity Deals.

UPDATE 21 September: Smyths Toys released stock yesterday morning, which sold out very quickly leaving many of us still on the hunt for the elusive PS5.

Otherwise, it is largely quiet on the stock front with GAME still due to release on the 30 September as stated on their website.

It has been a while since we've seen any stock released from retailers such as Amazon and Argos, and so we're hoping that they could announce something soon.

We could, of course, experience some surprise drops as we did yesterday with Smyths Toys, so be sure to check out Gfinity Deals for all the latest.

Advertisement

UPDATE 20 September: As another week starts it has been fairly quiet so far on the PS5 stock front, however, there have been hints of several retailers restocking in the background.

On GAME's official website, they have listed that both the PS5 console and various bundles are currently due to release on 30 September.

However, given the volatility of PS5 stock, it could be worth keeping an eye on this to see whether it changes in the coming days, we'll be sure to keep you updated.

On Twitter, PS5StockAlertUK shared that EE has stock coming soon and that while there is no official release date for when this will be, you can register interest on the EE website.

PS5StockAlertUK have also suggested that the John Lewis restock has been delayed and have predicted an early October release, however, there has been no official word from John Lewis on this.

So, it seems there could be lots happening behind the scenes to look forward to in the coming weeks, be sure to check back at Gfinity Deals for the latest updates.

UPDATE 16 September: We're still very much looking out for Amazon to see if they restock, however, chances are starting to dwindle this week, leaving us wondering when exactly we'll see any movement.

Advertisement

If we had to throw our hat in the ring, we'd say next week potentially on a Tuesday, however, with very little in the way of information we can only speculate.

The good news is that those who do get a PS5 will now have the option to expand their internal storage, albeit in a slightly more DIY way than with Xbox's Seagate expansion card.

We also saw the announcement of a brand new Pulse 3D headset in Midnight Black, which you can now pre-order.

So it seems like there's a ton to look forward to...we'll be back with you soon with the latest updates around PS5 Stock, so stay tuned.

UPDATE 15 September: With the GAME drop done and dusted, we're now all looking forward to the next major restock, but where should be watching?

Rumours and tip-offs are surprisingly sparse as of late, but Amazon is certainly well overdue for a restock and worth keeping an eye out for.

Typically these restocks tend to happen early in the morning, around 8 am - 10 am from what we've seen, so whether it goes ahead today or not is still up in the air.

Advertisement

If it does go ahead soon, we're expecting it to be a massive drop, so be sure to stay glued to Gfinity Deals for all the latest stock updates.

UPDATE 14 September: This morning has already seen some action for PS5 stock releases with Argos and Very both going live with the Disc and Digital versions of the console.

If you didn't manage to get your hands on a PS5 this morning, GAME has announced on their official UK Twitter page that they will be releasing stock later today.

They will be using a queue-based system in order to deal with heavy traffic and each person will be able to order one console only.

GAME has stated that there will be both the Digital and Disc editions of the console available alongside various bundles up for grabs too.

Best of luck, we'll be back soon with the latest updates.

Advertisement

UPDATE 13 September: As another week begins, this morning we already saw BT release stock which was available for code owners only.

If you missed out on this release, according to PS5StockAlertUK there could be a large drop from Argos tomorrow (14 September) which is predicted to go live around 8 am.

PS5StockAlertUK have suggested there will be around 8-10k units, with both the Disc and Digital versions of the console available.

While we don't have any official news from Argos themselves, we've got our fingers crossed that it will follow through.

We'll be back soon with the latest PS5 stock updates!

UPDATE 9 September: ShopTo dropped recently in what has been a fairly quiet week for restocks.

While there are no concrete announcements coming our way for future drops this week, we have seen that Argos dropped around this time in the month in August, making us think we could see something soon.

Advertisement

We're still on high alert for Amazon, which recently restocked Xbox Series X bundles. Whether they'll drop PS5s on the same day is anyone's guess!

We'll keep you posted with more news, rumours, and stock alerts over at Gfinity Deals.

UPDATE 8 September: It's a little quiet out there on the PS5 stock drop front, however, there have been some rumblings around one retailer in particular.

According to UKPS5notify, Amazon UK 'could go live next with the PS5', a prediction perhaps based on a previous alert that PS5s were live at Amazon Italy.

In the past, we have seen some drops that appear to 'domino' across Europe and finally topple in the UK, but it's never 100% guaranteed.

As for the chances of an Amazon drop this week, we'd say they're 'fairly' high, especially as it has been a while since they last restocked.

If they do go ahead this week, we'd expect it early morning from around 8am - 11am, and for it to be on a Thursday based on previous stock drops.

Advertisement

Of course, we're just throwing our opinion in the ring here, but we will be back with you as soon as we see PS5s go live over at Gfinity Deals UK.

UPDATE 7 September: The latest restock has come in the form of Ace Studio today, a site similar in some ways to that of Very.

At the time of writing the queue is currently 'paused', but it's not clear as to whether the PS5s are out of stock or not.

As for the next drop on the list, as usual we're still waiting for an Amazon restock and there have been some rumblings of a potential drop next week for Argos too.

We'll keep you posted!

UPDATE 6 September: Asides from the ShopTo drop, it has been fairly quiet this month with stock drops, with a number of major retailers tipped for restocks anytime soon.

However, according to PS5 Stock UK, one store may have a date in the diary.

Advertisement

The stock checker account tweeted recently 'the internal systems now show the high-demand console to arrive in shipments mid-week around the 8th September, indicating a possible restock between 14th-17th September.'

It's a bold claim, but one we think does seem likely to be the case, especially with the relatively quiet beginning of the month.

We'll keep you posted throughout the week as usual!.

UPDATE 2 September: It looks like Curry's PC World has sent out another round of PS5 VIP codes.

The codes give you a priority pass to purchase a PS5 at select stores, so it's great if you get one. Nowadays many people are actually giving them away since they've already bagged their PS5, so stay on high alert for any giveaways online.

We're still waiting on a drop from a few major retailers, such as Amazon, but it is looking increasingly unlikely that it will go ahead this week, despite some predictions from other accounts.

Typically, restocks tend to occur between Tuesday - Thursday (from our experience) with Friday drops being very rare indeed.

Advertisement

We also see restocks from around 8am - 11am most times, so past that window, the chances do dwindle a little from the larger stores.

According to PS5 Stock UK, John Lewis is expected to receive a shipment of consoles around 20th September, which could mean we'll see a restock shortly after.

We'll keep you posted as usual!

UPDATE 1 September: It's a new month, and with it comes a ton more chances (we hope) to get our hands on a PS5.

Recently we've seen new models circulating which weigh in at around 300g less than the originals. The decision was said to be made to make for faster production, so hopefully, we'll see some big restocks incoming.

As for potential drops, we're on high alert for Amazon, which hasn't dropped in some time, and it's said that AO, John lewis and Scan are on the horizon too, potentially even for this week.

We'll keep a sharp eye out and keep you updated over at Gfinity Deals UK.

Advertisement

UPDATE 31 August: It looks like we may be in for a big week of restocks if the latest rumours and predictions are to be believed.

Recently, PS5 Stock UK tweeted that we could see drops from Amazon, AO, John Lewis, Scan, and Smyths as early as today.

They also wrote that ShopTo may be in line for a restock on 5th September.

But, as with all predictions, we'd advise taking with a pinch of salt as these are far but confirmed.

In our opinion, we'd say it's growing increasingly likely that Amazon will drop imminently, so be sure to watch out for them.

If they do drop, it'll likely be in the morning from 8 am, so we'd say turn on notifications and stay on high alert from that time.

UPDATE 26 August: Thursdays can see a lot of action in the world of restocks, and all eyes are fixed on one retailer in particular, that has been rumoured to drop since the beginning of the week.

Advertisement

Even with drops from Asda and Box, we're still waiting to see whether Amazon will follow suit and our chances of getting a drop this week may be starting to dwindle.

We think that if we don't see any movement from Amazon today, then we'll likely see something next week, potentially as early as Monday, but more realistically speaking, Tuesday.

Of course, these are just predictions, so take with a pinch of salt, but as always we'll be on hand to update you with any stock announcements when we see them!

UPDATE 25 August: Alas, still no sign of the Amazon restock rumoured to be 'imminent soon' by PS5 UK Stock Alerts, however, we did see a lightning-fast drop from Asda earlier this morning.

If you were lucky enough to grab a PS5 from the drop, congrats! But if you were like many out there who are still left wanting, here's everything we know about what could be coming our way this week.

Firstly, we'd say Amazon is likely to drop soon, but it is difficult to pin down a day as, unlike GAME, they tend to spring the restocks on us with no prior warning.

We may be waiting some time for the next GAME and ShopTo drop as they both have restocked recently, so expect to wait anywhere between 3 - 4 weeks for the next by our predictions.

Advertisement

We'll be on high alert through the day to fill you in on any updates, so be sure to stay tuned to Gfinity Deals this week!

UPDATE 24 August: According to PS5 UK Stock Alerts, an Amazon drop is 'imminent soon' and 'could be today'.

The account also tweeted that it'll 'most likely (be) Amazon Prime Members only'.

But the big question here is how likely is this to be true, and what are our chances today, or even this week?

First off, Amazon drops in the UK typically come in around 8 am - 9 am and as usual are not announced like the restocks from Game for instance.

We're well past that time bracket at the time of writing, so we'd say the chances are slim that we'll see a drop today - however, we could always be surprised.

If not today, then when?

Advertisement

Well, since it has been some time since Amazon has dropped, we'd say a restock is indeed imminent, however, we'd pin the retock closer to Thursday if it does go ahead.

Our advice? Stay on high alert today and keep your eyes glued to Twitter from 8 am this week to ensure you don't miss anything.

UPDATE 19 August: We're still waiting for the drop from GAME today, and we predict it could be any moment now.

It will likely go ahead between 9.30 am to 10.30 am, so be sure to keep an eye on Gfinity Deals UK for stock alerts!

UPDATE 18 August: An update from GAME themselves on Twitter has revealed that our predictions were on the money, as they will be restocking tomorrow.

But what time should you set your alarms for?

Well, it appears that no time has been given apart from the fact we know it'll be going ahead in the morning as expected.

We'd say to set yourself on high alert from 8am, based on past restocks from the retailer.

You can check out the message for yourself below, and we'll be on hand at Gfinity Deals to announce the second it goes live!

UPDATE 17 August: Smyths restocked earlier this morning and while some had success, we can bet that there are still many out there still looking to get their hands on a PS5.

Advertisement

Well, it seems that you won't have to wait too long, as the latest rumblings on social media suggest that the GAME restock may go ahead on Thursday 19th August in the morning.

The post shared by PS5 Stock UK also goes on to read that stock levels are currently unknown, however, we're predicting that this may be a big one

We'll keep you updated at Gfinity Deals UK, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for our stock alerts.

UPDATE 16 August: In a very surprising turn of events, we actually saw a stock drop last weekend from ShopTo.

Usually retsocks tend to happen more towards the middle of the week, from Tuesday to Thursday, making this a welcome surprise for many on the hunt for the next-gen console.

That being said, now we're turning our attention to this week and where we think may be in line for the next drop.

The big restock tipped to be on its way is from GAME, with the latest rumours suggesting that pre-orders could go live from 17 August.

Advertisement

We'd say this could be the biggest restock of the week and certainly one to keep an eye out for.

From our experience, we've seen restocks occur more towards the morning, with GAME hovering around 8 am - 11 am, so keep an eye on Twitter from then.

As usual, we'll be on high alert and update you over at Gifnity Deals UK when we know more!

UPDATE 13 August: It appears that GAME could be in line for another one of their big restocks, but when should we mark our calendars for?

Well, accourding to PS5 Stock UK, we could expect pre-orders starting from 17 August, meaning that next week could be a big week for those still on the hunt for PS5.

As for today, we rarely see drops happen on Fridays, but we wouldn't say it's worth letting your guard down just yet as if history as taught us anything some retailers can surprise us!

We'll be back with you with all the latest soon.

Advertisement

UPDATE 12 August: Yesterday saw a massive drop of PS5 Disc Editions and Digital Editions at Amazon, and the folks who follow us at Gfinity Deals UK saw some success too!

But now, with so many retailers dropping this week, the clocks have been reset so we could be waiting anywhere between two to four weeks for the next drop (from them at least).

The good news is that GAME is yet to restock, and unlike some other stores, they offer less of a surprise attack, making them a little easier to prepare for.

We predict that they may drop this week, and if they do, it will likely be between 8am - 10am.

We'll be on hand at Gfinity Deals UK to let you know when or if they do!

UPDATE 10 August: Argos dropped earlier this morning and it looks like many people have been able to grab their PS5!

You can check using the link below for yourself.

Advertisement

UPDATE 9 August: In a rare occurrence, ShopTo restocked PS5s yesterday, breaking the mould of drops typically taking place during the week.

If you missed out, don't fret, as we think a number of stores are worth adding to the watch list this week.

Last week there were rumours of an Argos drop on its way, and Scan is still yet to restock either.

We're also on very high alert for Amazon restocks, as the last time they dropped was on 16 July. If they do go ahead with it, it'll likely be early in the morning, between 8am - 10am, based on previous drops.

We'll be on hand at Gfinity Deals UK with all the latest.

UPDATE 6 August: All eyes appear to be fixed on Argos at the moment, with predictions of an imminent drop.

One stock tracker on Twitter claims that 'pallets have arrived overnight' which they said could mean 'a drop near 8am'.

Of course, we're well past that time and we typically see Argos restock in the very early morning (1am - 4am).

Time will tell if they break the mould today and we'll be on high alert over here to share any updates as we get them.

UPDATE 5 August: A somewhat out of the blue drop occurred earlier this morning at Studio, an online store similar to Very, but if you missed out there is still a chance we could see another drop this week.

Advertisement

As mentioned, we're still waiting on Scan and ShopTo to drop, both of which we rumoured to restock from this week.

The good news is that if you don't want to wait the PS5 Standard and PS5 Digital Edition are now available in all stores for in store pre-orders only at Smyths Toys.

Check your local store to see if you're in luck, and keep your eyes peeled on Gfinity Deals UK.

UPDATE 4 August: While it's relatively quiet on the rumour front, we are still on very high alert for a number of stores in particular.

As per our last update, Scan, ShopTo, and Smyths could be up for a drop as early as this week, however, it does appear that Asda went ahead with a drop that sold out in just minutes.

We'll keep you posted on Gfinity Deals UK with any updates.

Advertisement

UPDATE 3 August: John Lewis dropped earlier this morning, as did EE, but if you didn't manage to get a PS5, this week could still bring some more chances.

According to this week's predictions, we should be looking at Scan, ShopTo, Smyths, and Argos to drop any time soon.

While it's difficult to predict restock times, we can say with some level of confidence that Argos will restock in the early hours of the morning.

We don't recommend staying up until 4am on a hunch, but if you do happen to be awake at that time, it's worth keeping in mind that there could be a drop.

We'll keep you posted throughout the week.

UPDATE 2 August: A recent tweet from PS5instant suggest that August may prove fruitful for PS5 drops.

The tipster claims that we could see restocks as early as today, with Asda predicted to drop between 2 - 5th August in the morning.

Next up could be Argos, Smyths, Scan, and ShopTo, all of which are predicted to restock from 3rd August.

This looking for that all important Amazon drop may have to wait, however, as they are tipped to be restocking from the 12th - 19th August.

We'll keep you posted throughout the week, so be sure to keep your eyes on Gfinity Deal UK for stock updates.

UPDATE 30 July: We're nearly at the end of the month and what a month it's been for stock drops!

We've seen multiple retailers deliver the goods, but we've also seen some surprises, including the announcement that the PS5 Digital will be lighter in the near future, in an attempt to enhance production.

This could mean that we see more PS5 Digitals hit the shelves in August, but time will tell.

Today, there are still a number of retailers which could drop, including Scan, which has offered some extensive PS5 bundles in the past, and John Lewis, which is now overdue in relation to the predictions

We'll be back with you soon with all the all the latest.

UPDATE 29 July: We're drawing closer to the end of the month, but we could still be in for a surprise.

A number of predictions that were made at the start of the week have come true, but we're still waiting to see if a number of retailers will restock before we hit August.

ShopTo and Scan are certainly ones to watch, as is John Lewis who was said to restock anytime between 27 - 29th July.

We'll keep you posted at Gfinity Deals UK.

There are more retailers tipped to restock this week, including AO, Asda and John Lewis, so be sure to keep an eye out on Gfinity Deals UK for the latest stock updates.

UPDATE 27 July: Tuesdays in the world of PS5 restocks are usually quite an exciting day, with multiple retailers generally favouring the day of the week over Mondays and Fridays to drop.

It's no surprise that the latest rumours point towards Amazon, AO, Asda and John Lewis being in line to restock from today.

Amazon is the one to watch, but how likely will it go ahead?

According to PS5 UK Stock Alerts, it is expected any day between Tuesday and Thursday at around 8.30am.

They're on the money when it comes to the time, as we do generally see Amazon drop in the early morning.

We'll be on high alert and update you when we hear more over on Gfinity Deals UK.

UPDATE 23 July: Fridays are typically quiet in the world of stock drops, however, according to recent claims there could be a chance we may get one.

Earlier in the week, a tweet from PS5instant, stated that both John Lewis and Asda were set to restock between 21st - 29th July, making us well into the predicted release window.

How likely will it happen today? We think it's unlikely based on what we've seen since the PS5 was released, as Friday drops are indeed the rarity.

However, nowadays we are seeing more 'random' drops than ever, so anything could happen!

UPDATE 22 July: According to PS5 instant, we may see a drop within the hour for 6000 digital and 4000 disc PS5 consoles.

We'll announce at Gfinity Deals UK when they go live, but stay on high alert!

UPDATE 21 July: It appears that Argos started rolling out regional restocks earlier today. You can check your region using the link below to see if either the PS5 Disc or Digital Edition are in stock.

In other news, a big drop is said to be incoming soon for PS5 Digital, and the reason is said to be that some hardware changes are being made to the console, according to PS5instant.

Now before you go thinking that the PS5 will finally get 1440p native, we should say that these changes are reportedly to lighten the weight of the console to increase production.

On top of that keep an eye out for John Lewis and Asda this week, as both a rumoured to drop soon.

UPDATE 20 July: Some excitement this morning as Smyths Toys became the latest retailer to restock PS5s.

With Asda, John Lewis, and Argos tipped to drop this week, those still after the next-gen console could be in with a shot.

According to PS5instant, GAME has also received PS5 stock, including a 'huge amount of Digital' PS5s.

If GAME does drop, it'll likely happen in the morning between 8 am - 10 am if history has taught us anything, so be sure to stay on high alert for any announcements.

UPDATE 19 July: This week is tipped to have a number of drops from major retailers, however, as we have seen in the past this could all change at any moment.

Currently, Argos is tipped to restock from today - 23rd July, and since they typically open up orders between 1am - 4am, we'd say that today is likely not the day.

Both Asda and John Lewis are said to be restocking between 21st - 29th July, and Very is still predicted to drop between 22nd - 29th July.

We'll be on hand over at Gfinity Deals UK with all the latest!

UPDATE 16 July: This morning saw Amazon UK finally open up pre-orders for the Nintendo Switch Oled Model, just a day after pre-orders went live in the US for Best Buy, Gamestop, Target and more.

But on the PS5 front, it looks like disappointing news, as reliable PS5 stock tipster PS5instant shared an update on Very.

The tweet reads that stock arrived 'later than usual' and that the online retailer had 'only received Disc PS5s'.

It goes on to give a new date of 20 - 28th July (8-11am) for the drop.

As usual, we're not expecting any drops over the weekend, but we'd advise staying on high alert next week to be in with your chance of securing your console.

Very #PS5Stock arrived later than usual! They ONLY received Disc PS5s! 20-28th July (8-11am)

UPDATE 15 July: Amazon restock PS5 disc consoles yesterday, however, there is still no sight of the Digital Edition rumoured to be incoming soon.

But thankfully there are other stores tipped to drop this week which will be worth keeping an eye out on.

According to PS5instant, Smyths Toys are set to drop between now and the 17th July and Asda is also tipped for a restock from now to the 21st July.

We’ll be on high alert as always and notify you over on Gfinity Deals UK.

UPDATE 14 July: Amazon finally dropped today releasing PS5 disc stock.

If you didn't manage to get one this time around, the digital version is expected soon, but just how soon are we talking?

Well, based on previous restock patterns it's actually quite hard to pin down, especially since restocks, in general, have been less predictable than ever.

A recent tweet from PS5instant claims that the drop will be on a different day, so we'd say to stay on high alert from tomorrow onwards!

We'll be back with you soon to let you know when it goes live.

UPDATE 13 July: John Lewis dropped earlier this morning aligning with many of the predictions made around the retailer.

However if you were unable to secure a PS5 this time around, there are expected to be more chances soon, according to the latest claims.

Reliable tipset PS5instant states that we could expect Very, Smyths Toys and Asda up drop from 14th July, with Amazon possibly restocking from today.

Amazon last dropped on 27th June, making them somewhat overdue for another major restock, so we advise keeping your eye out for any announcements.

UPDATE 12 July: For those still on the hunt for a PS5 it looks like this week may have more than one opportunity, if the rumours are to true.

According to PS5instant, we could expect a number of retailers to drop this week, including Amazon, ASDA, John Lewis, Smyths, and Very.

While the date ranges given are broad, the two retailers tipped for the earliest restock this week are Amazon and Smyths.

If they do drop, we’d advise staying on high alert from around 7am, as we do typically see these retailers restock early in the day, with Amazon recently going ahead at around 8am.

Make sure to stay glued to Gfinity Deals UK for stock announcements the second we hear them.

UPDATE 9 July: Argos appear to have followed suit after the GAME restock, but for those wanting to grab a PS5 there is a slight catch.

It appears that different regions will have different stock levels, so while it's exciting that the PS5 disc and digital editions are back in stock, we'd advise checking your local before getting your hopes up.

If you've missed out this time don't fret, as there will be more chances to come.

UPDATE 8 July: With the Currys PC World drop been and gone, at least for the digital version f the console, all eyes are on one major UK retailer for the next drop of the week.

GAME has been rumoured to drop since the 6th July and while we haven't seen anything just yet, we're not ruling anything out.

The gaming retailer typically drops in the morning, between 8am - 10am, so we'd recommend staying on high alert today.

If they don't restock today, we think it may be unlikely that we see it happen on Friday, and even less so over the weekend.

Time will tell, and we'll be on hand to share any stock announcements the moment we see them!

UPDATE 7 July: Currys PC World released more PS5 stock earlier this morning, including a PS5 digital bundle for £409.99.

There are more retailers tipped to drop this week, including Smyths Toys, who recently went live with Nintendo Switch Oled Model pre-orders.

According to PS5 instant, they could drop from the 9th, and while Friday restocks are rare, they're not unheard of so it could be worth keeping an eye out.

PS5instant posted on Twitter that GAME may be in line to restock between the 6th - 15th July, meaning that we could be due for a drop anytime soon.

How likely is it to go ahead? Well, on the whole many of the predictions on Twitter have been quite accurate, however, with nothing officially confirmed we can only be so confident.

The latest revolves around online retailers Very and specifically, when they're likely to restock.

According to PS5instant, it's claimed that Very's shipments are expected between 12-19th July, which would place a potential stock drop fairly late in the month in comparison to GAME.

GAME has been tipped for a drop as early as 6th July, however, we think it may be more likely later in the month also.

We'll be back with you next week with all the latest!

UPDATE 1 July: A new month is here, and we're here to give you everything you need to know surrounding the latest ps5 restocks, rumours, predictions and more.

Scan was the last retailer of the month to drop in June, but for those of you who missed out don't fret, as we'll likely be seeing more opportunities soon.

In fact, the latest rumours point to GAME potentially releasing stock in under a week, which while unconfirmed does give us some hope that we won't have to wait too long for another chance.

There may be a possibility we'll see a stock drop from another retailer before then, so stay on high alert!

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!
