It's still a bit of a task to get your hands on a PS5 console. It's slowly getting easier, but there's still a long way to go. That being said... There's a new PS5 stock drop you should know about. It might be a bit of a scramble though, so be prepared.

LATEST - Argos Bundles on eBay?

There's still no news of an Amazon UK and Game Digital drop, but Ratchet & Clank PS5 Bundles have been spotted online from Argos via eBay.

It's an interesting method, but eBay isn't just for personal sellers. A lot of larger companies use the platform's digital marketplace for their own trade. This could mean there's some PS5 stock in your local branch, too. So, it may be worth checking out if you're still looking.

GAME Digital In-Stores

Allegedly, GAME Digital is going to start allowing PS5 console purchases in-store from Monday 21st June. This is going to be the case while PS5 stock lasts, as you might imagine, and there's going to be quite a demand.

This might be a better way to get your hands on a PS5, but we're still waiting on a PS5 stock drop from both GAME Digital and Amazon UK online.

Where To Buy?

GAME Digital and Amazon UK were both rumoured to release their new PS5 console stock from around 08:00 BST on June 17th. However, this appears to have been delayed. We could see stock released at the same time on June 18th, or in the following week.

GAME Digital has stated that there is limited stock available to pre-order on their website right now.

This should act as a guarantee, if you can preorder a console, however, there are a few tips and tricks you can use to help your chances in the future.

Amazon UK has yet to announce a PS5 stock release.

Best Practice - Tips & Tricks

Firstly, it's always beneficial to have an account with the retailer you're shopping with. This means your checkout process is a lot quicker and you can save your payment information.

In addition to this, if you "Wishlist" an item you want you should receive more pre-warning about when the retailer is going to release their upcoming stock. As you can imagine, with the limited availability of a PS5 console, this is useful.

DISC OR DIGITAL - Both have their advantages and they're both as powerful as one another

If you're looking to get your PS5 console from GAME Digital, reports are showing that only a small percentage of new units are being attributed to individual sales. GAME Digital has opted to sell its new PS5 consoles in Bundles. This means you should aim for one of those if you're looking for a console.

Of course, they are going to be a bit more than the RRP of just the console, but you'll be able to pick up a game or two, a new DualSense controller... It's worth the expense.
