PS5 Console Stock Update
If you're still looking to get your hands on a PS5 console, things are looking up!
GAME has just released some new stock, Argos released some yesterday and it looks like John Lewis and Very could be next up. PS5Instant also thinks Amazon could release more stock soon.
Sadly though, it looks like GAME is out of stock for now. However... There could be another drop over the next couple of days. It's worth keeping an eye on StockInformer, either way.

Upcoming Releases & More
There are a couple of major releases coming to PS4 and PS5 over the next few days.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition and Subnautica Below Zero are both dropping on May 14th, Friday. We've also got new information about the release time for Assassin's Creed Valhalla's Wrath of the Druids DLC on May 13th.
There's also a brand new look at Scarlet Nexus coming in the form of a Game Demo. It looks like it will be exclusive to Xbox Series X|S at first, but we are led to believe it will also be coming to PlayStation 5 at a later date.
There have also been new news regarding Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart, sort of. Major media outlets are beginning to release preview information and that means a whole slew of new in-game screenshots are beginning to surface.
