PS5 UK stock boost as Argos, Amazon and others get consoles in ‘biggest shipment yet’
If you’re still looking to get your hands on a PlayStation 5 console, you might be in luck as the UK stock looks set to be replenished this month in the “biggest shipment yet”.
Thousands of PS5 consoles are expected to hit UK shelves in May as part of Sony’s “biggest shipment yet”, according to the latest reports in the tech world.
Major retailers including Argos, Amazon, GAME and Very are expected to receive new stock as early as today (May 3) with more available in the coming weeks.
After units were delayed in April, it is understood the stock could be split between two dates.
Other UK retailers likely to restock this month include Currys, Smyths Toys and John Lewis.
Based on Tweets from PS5 Instant, the earliest PS5 stock update could happen on Tuesday, May 4, and include Argos, the Express reports.
However, Very is also reportedly getting PlayStation 5 stock in early May, followed by the likes of Amazon and GAME.
Tweets from PS5 Instant – a reliable stock tracker account – shared these reports in late April: “PS5 UK Stock won’t release this Monday. Very shipment arriving soon.
“PS5 UK stock looks promising; Argos has record number stock. May PS5 UK Shipment biggest yet. Major retailers receiving more stock than ever! Make sure scalpers make a loss.
“Currently looking at PS5 restocks at GAME & Argos between 10-17th May. GAME is receiving 25k units and stock twice next month.”
However, while we have a new early date for the first PlayStation 5 stock update, that doesn’t mean things will be kicking off early.
The week of May 10 could be the start of another wave, with both Amazon and GAME expected to offer bundle options.
Others are expected to follow, but it’s unclear at this point how many units will be included.
