PS5 Stock Updates
Although it's still a little tough getting your hands on a PS5 console, early April is looking promising as reports are showing that Smyths is looking to restock very soon.
However, if there aren't any stock drops today then we aren't expecting any until after Easter Monday, April 6th at the earliest.

CEX and eBay both still have some second-hand PS5 consoles in stock but they are selling for more than the RRP and you need to be careful what you're paying for with them.
April 2021 PS Plus
Yesterday, PlayStation revealed their full April 2021 PS Plus lineup and there are a few great games coming to the service on April 6th.
Abe's next adventure, Oddworld: Soulstorm is the PS5 title this month. However, both Days Gone and Zombie Army 4: Dead War will also be available via backwards compatibility.
Days Gone is already part of the PS Plus Collection, so if anything this can just be a reminder that you should give it a go! It's been optimised for PS5 with a few minor upgrades that help refine the experience.
Returnal Hands-On Preview
Returnal is the next big PlayStation exclusive game and we've got a brand-new hands-on preview ahead of its' April 30th launch.
" With her ship downed but her suit’s systems still active and tracking the broadcast, Selene sets off, armed with only a sidearm and a scientist’s tenaciousness. Between the signal’s origin and her are multiple biomes, each a labyrinth of interconnected areas."
In the latest PlayStation Blog Post that details what's in store, we get a great look at Returnal's combat and gameplay alongside new information about how Returnal makes the most of the PS5's technology.
We also get a little bit more information about Selene, the protagonist of this wild adventure.
" Explorative platformer, action shooter, roguelike, psychological horror. Returnal splices these disparate strands together with elegance."
Returnal is coming to PS5 consoles as the next PS5 exclusive on April 30th.
