It's starting to get easier and easier to get PS5 consoles in the UK. They still sell out incredibly fast, but there aren't as many scalpers to fight with.
Now that we're in April it should start getting much easier as huge restocks are expected.
Check out all the updates and information for April 2nd.
Smyths Could Release Stock Tonight
It is expected the Smyths could be next in line to release new PS5 stock, with estimates being between April 1st-7th.
This means that they could release stock tonight, as Smyths seem to release their stock in the evening.
According to rumours, Smyths will only have a small amount of consoles for sale so you will need to be extremely lucky to secure one, but it is definitely worth trying.
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 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:
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.
