Who could replenish the elusive console today?

(The independent)

UPDATE: The PS5 is sold out at Argos. It could drop to Game and Amazon next week. Read on for more information.

It has now been over a year since Sony’s last console, the PlayStation 5 (PS5), arrived in the UK. But supply issues and a global semiconductor shortage triggered by the coronavirus pandemic have slowed production of the device. New stock is always hard to find, and when it does show up, the PS5 sells out quickly, both online and in stores.

This is your last chance to buy a console before Christmas, and it looks like retailers are going out of their way to make sure a console sits under the tree this year. So far this month we’ve seen restockings at Smyths Toys, Currys, PlayStation Direct, and ShopTo. This week we saw BT, Very, Littlewoods, Currys, Studio, ShopTo, and EE restock the console.

If you’re still looking for a PS5, you’ve come to the right place. Our liveblog is here to give you the latest information on restocking from all major UK retailers, both online and in store, as well as providing details on release rumors, as well as the latest games and accessories. PS5 to buy.

A recap of this week’s PS5 replenishment events

(The independent)

Phew, what a week it’s been! There were 13 monstrous drops this week – one of the biggest weeks for restocking since the summer. Here’s a recap of how things turned out.

On Monday we saw PlayStation Direct and BT restock the console – a pretty good day for a Monday. But on Tuesday, Very, ShopTo, Currys (with a general sale replenishment), Studio and Littlewoods all joined in the action, with another replenishment from BT to top it off.

Very fell for the second time on Wednesday, and BT apparently passed the rest of the shares to sister company EE, which also had a replenishment. Thursday saw another drop in PlayStation Direct and a short, steep drop in Hamleys. And today? Well we hope many of you have managed to get a console from Argos.

Don’t worry if it doesn’t. You should have one last chance to buy a console before Christmas next week, with both Game and Amazon set to give up inventory. Join us here on Monday and have a fabulous weekend.

Sony would develop an Xbox Game Pass competitor

In other news this morning, a Bloombergreport suggests that Sony is preparing to launch its own version of Xbox Game Pass, codenamed Spartacus.

According to the report, Sony will merge PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now – the cloud gaming service – but will retain the PS Plus brand, and the more expensive tier would give gamers access to PS1, PS2, PS3 and PSP games. It’s something to look forward to, especially for fans of those retro Grave robber Games.

Should you buy a PS5 from CeX?

Ah CeX, the ass of playground jokes and nostalgia for childhood secondhand games. While we think fondly of CeX, we would think twice before purchasing a PS5 from the retailer.

You could make a small profit by selling your PS5 to CeX – who buys it for £ 475, but you will definitely lose many money if you actually want to buy the console.

CeX is currently selling the PS5 for £ 695 – that’s more than some of Game’s more expensive packs. Our proposal ? Stick with the major retailers and get a new PS5 with a plan for the same price.

BT PS5’s stock is also expected to go live this morning

(The independent)

BT is also expected to drop stock of the PS5 this morning, with BT Broadband customers having priority access to purchase the console.

You will need an access code, but if you have a BT TV or BT Sports subscription, you should be able to get one through this link. If you were successful in securing a passcode from a previous drop, that should work as well. We will keep you posted as soon as the stock is online.

The PS5 is in stock at PS Direct

The PS5 is now in stock on PlayStation Direct. There is a waiting room at the moment, so you still have time to enter it before the purchase begins.

Fortunately, it’s not on a first come, first serve basis like many other retailers. You receive a random unique ID after the countdown is over, which means you don’t know what position in the queue you’ll be in when the consoles drop. Take that, scalpers!

Make sure you have your PSN credentials handy or you will not be able to purchase the console.

PS Direct PS5 queue is now live

The PlayStation Direct queue is now live. What is the estimated wait time for each? Ours lasts over an hour … We hope some of you got a better position in the queue than us.

Good luck and don’t forget to have your PSN credentials and card details handy so that you can quickly purchase the console when you pass the queue.

There are no digital editing consoles available this time around, so you’ll have to shell out extra for editing the disc.

PS5 sold out on PlayStation Direct

Phew, it went quickly. The PS5 is now sold out on PlayStation Direct, but it’s still in stock at BT if you have a passcode.

As a reminder, you can only get an access code if you are a BT Broadband customer, so maybe ask a friend if they can lend you their code through the BT portal.
