Double Shipments Are Expected

PS5 stock was supposed to become much more plentiful in April, unfortunately, this didn't end up being the case and many delays caused barely any stock to land in stores.

There is some good news though, that stock is now on its way, along with May's shipments too.

This means, there should be double the amount of PlayStation 5 consoles hitting the market over the coming weeks.

PS5 UK Stock - Instant Updates has stated that,

"Good news is Sony shipped out May's stock, we'll get April & May's #PS5restock altogether so huge windows per drop!"

So we can expect most stores to receive stock soon and lots of it, which hopefully will mean you will finally be able to get your hands on the next-gen system.

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.
