LATEST - PS5 Stock At Smyths Toys

At long last, the long-awaited Smyths Toys PS5 console stock drop looks like it's on the way. Although, there's a catch...

The next-gen console pre-orders appear to be in-store only!

Of course, it's going to be a first-come-first-serve situation while stocks last, so good luck if you're going to go out and try to get one.

PS5 Bundles Spotted On Amazon DE

A PS5 console stock drop from Amazon UK could be closer than you think. A Ratchet & Clank Console Bundle has been spotted online on Amazon DE, the German version of the site.

This, of course, still means the PS5 console is out of stock on Amazon UK but it could be possible given the other information.

Amazon France has also released Disc Edition, Digital Edition, and Ratchet & Clank Console Bundles earlier today. Amazon UK could be next.

Smyths Toys' Smaller Stock Drops

Earlier today, on June 23rd, Smyths Toys released a small number of PS5 consoles at around 08:30 BST. This was a little later than anticipated and the size of the stock release could mean that Smyths Toys is going to carry out a few more PS5 console stock releases over the next few days as we enter the final stretch of June.

Several people have also started spotting in-store signs that suggest that Smyths Toys have started taking in-person pre-orders. It might be worthwhile taking a trip to your local Smyths Toys store to check. A lot of the time, online stock and retail stock are separated.

Argos is also expected to be receiving a small amount of PS5 consoles over the weekend; There's no word as to whether these will be released at the start of next week but they could be another retailer to look out for.

Amazon UK Expected Release Time & Date

At the moment, we don't know for sure when Amazon UK is expected to release their next batch of PS5 console stock. It should arrive in the morning of either June 24th or June 25th, though.

As for a specific time, Amazon UK has released stock from anywhen as early as 07:00 BST, to 09:00 BST, or even later.

Amazon UK can usually handle the traffic, but it is still recommended that you sign up and have your payment information saved and ready to go. Adding the PS5 console to your Amazon Wishlist should also help and offer an email alert when the stock does arrive.

All we know for certain is that everyone "in the know" is expecting a PS5 console stock drop before June 28th.

BT Could Drop Stock Too

Unusually, there are some rumours that would suggest BT could release some PS5 console stock soon. This isn't exactly where you'd expect to see the stock, so you might have a bit more luck looking here.

On the new BT rumours, this is what we know...

" Potential restock by BT between 19th - 23rd July, however, there are ongoing discussions between higher-end staff about the option of dropping in-store using BT & EE stores nationwide."

Of course, this is a lot more talk than facts at the moment... But keep an eye on these two. You might be in luck.
