The week of restocks continues; Another UK retailer has PS5 consoles

Is getting a PS5 Console starting to get easier? It certainly feels like it. Every day, news of another PS5 Console restock appears and it looks like there's more becoming available than ever before (besides launch, anyway).

We know that demand would be high, but here's everything you need to know about this week's PS5 Console restocks.

LATEST - Argos Drop Expected Soon

It looks like another opportunity is on the way! Well, if you don't have a PS5 console yet, anyway. Argos is reportedly starting to "roll out" its PlayStation 5 stock to most of its stores.

This means we could be seeing stock become available for order online as early as July 9th! As always, Argos could release stock at 01:00 BST on July 9th.


Of course, take this with a pinch of salt. If they don't become available on Friday, then we may have to wait until the 12th or 13th for more information.


In-Store Pre-Orders @ GAME

It looks like GAME Digital is going to be releasing some more PS5 Consoles soon following a restock. Reports are showing that a few stores are offering in-store pre-orders.

We don't know what this means for online shoppers, but be sure to check out your local branch in case you can get your hands on one.

AO Is The First To Be Eliminated

It is time to mourn the fallen and fire a cannon in their honour. AO is the first retailer to release their PS5 Console stock following a recent restock and now only a few remain. If you didn't get your hands on a new console from the online-only retailer, then there's still hope for you yet.


There are reports that you still might be able to purchase a PS5 Console Bundle from AO and PS5StockAlertsUK has a helpful tip to help you "beat the system" and get your hands on one.

Check out where else to look for a PS5 Console restock below, though.


Where To Buy A PS5 And When?

This week, it looks like there are several major UK retailers gearing up for a PS5 Console restock and drop. PS5StockAlertsUK is always fairly accurate with their suggestions, but it's worth taking the following with a pinch of salt. It's guidelines as opposed to anything confirmed.

Still, if you're looking for a PS5 Console, the restock dates are as follows:

  • GAME Digital - July 6th to July 8th
  • Smyths Toys - July 7th to July 9th
  • Very - July 6th to July 8th

In addition to this, we could see ASDA, John Lewis, and Studio all release PS5 Consoles in the next week but there isn't any idea as to when this will be.

For the most part, these will go live between 07:00 BST and 10:00 BST on the day of the PS5 Console restock. However, there is no way of telling for sure as delays are frequent.


Tips For Online Shopping

This might seem like obvious advice to those of you who have been chasing a PS5 Console for a while now, but if you're new to the game, there are a few things you can do that should help give you a fighting chance when it comes to trying to by a new PS5 Console on one of the restock dates above.

Firstly, always make an account with the retailer ahead of time. If you shop a lot on Amazon, you know how easy it is. The "Account" system isn't unique to Amazon and almost every retailer has a way you can save your shipping address and payment information ahead of time. This can save you quite a bit of time while buying things and could be the difference between a PS5 Console or not.

In addition to this, adding a PS5 Console to your "Wishlist" (Or a similar feature) with an Account can help notify you when stock drops are due and/or start. It isn't a lot, but if you keep an eye on your email inbox it can help.
