It is once again getting very hard to find a PS5 Console in the UK.

After a few weeks of semi-regular drops, everything has gone dry again and major retailers aren't getting any stock.

Below, we'll run you through where you might be able to buy a PS5 console today and in the coming days.

LATEST - Amazon UK PS5 Stock Soon

It seems like those shortages are going to continue. It sounds as if the Suez Canal blockage and the continued semiconductor shortage are making it tough for retailers to get stock.

As @PS5StockAlertUK on Twitter says,

"News: Argos to not get PS5 shipments anytime soon. I’ve been informed that no stock is available, and no stock will be available for a while.

Argos do not know when to expect their next shipment from Sony. Why? Semiconductor shortage & Evergreen."

However, it is possible that Amazon UK will get PS5 consoles early next week. You can see the tweet from @PS5UKStock below.

Very and Smyths have been rumoured to be getting stock for a while now, with nothing dropping, so it's still possible that they got consoles this week or next.

We'll keep an eye out for information and let you know if and when any drops come. For now though, Amazon UK will be your best bet.

In addition to this, CEX and Ebay are also often good places to find second-hand consoles but be careful about how much you're paying.

No Longer Profitable

Due to the recent reduction is selling price at CEX, and the lower selling prices on eBay, it is no longer profitable for scalpers to sell the PS5 on these platforms.

CEX will now just give £450 for a boxed PS5, the same price as the console costs to purchase.

eBay still sees the console sell for around £550-600, but this is far lower than the £900 the console was selling for just a few weeks ago.

PS5 UK Stock - Instant Updates recently tweeted that,

"Due to recent drops, its unprofitable to sell a PS5 to CEX! Average prices for a PS5 on eBay have dropped to £550!"

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.
