This isn't good news for potential PS5 buyers

April was set to be a good month for PS5 buyers in the UK, but it looks like stock plans have changed for a little while.

Check out all the updates and information for April 10th.

No PS5 Shipments For A While

After a strong start to the month, with many retailers receiving stock, it looks like we're back to the console drought again.

As it stands right now, there are no retailers that are known to getting stock this week.

@PS5Instant noted that,

"#PS5 won't be released till next week, later half of my 8-15th date. As most retailers re-open Monday & are busy setting up. Stock will still be sold online due to Sony's COVID policy"

So, this means that stock will be coming, it just might be a little later than expected.

Our best advice is, keep checking back for these daily stock updates and set up as many stock alerts as you can.

But, if you have to have a new console now and can't wait for new stock, you do have a few options, although we don't recommend them.

CEX

CEX is a chain brand that sells used entertainment items from games, films, computer parts, mobile phones and more.

Because of this they don't have to follow pricing laws and can instead set their own laws.

They do sell both versions of the PS5, but be prepared to pay more than RRP for them.

At the time of writing the prices are:

Ebay

Like CEX, if you're prepared to pay more than RRP and aren't that bothered whether the box has been opened before, then Ebay is one place to consider.

One thing to note is, since you may be dealing with individual sellers there may be a risk involved, so be prepared for that before you bid/purchase.
