Since its launch in 2020, the PlayStation 5 has been very difficult to obtain. Supply chain issues resulting from the global pandemic have all but halted production of Sony’s latest games console.
Fortunately, the situation has improved in recent months. The PS5 was pretty much in stock throughout May, with Game lead the charge. We’ve had nearly 108 restocks during the month – the most we’ve seen since Sony released the console. And as we approach the end of June, the month has so far continued this momentum, with Game, EE and the BT shop, as well as several independent retailers like The game collectionbeing in stock for much of the last few weeks.
That said, buying a console on its own is always harder than picking up a bundle, with standalone consoles selling out in the blink of an eye, while digital consoles (bundles included) have been non-existent. But we’re here to help, whether you’re looking for a bundle or the standalone PS5 Disc and PS5 Digital Edition consoles.
Still looking for the elusive PlayStation 5? Our aim is to guarantee you a next-gen machine, as well as provide you with details on the best games and accessories to grab with your new console, as well as the latest game reviews.

Has Argos ever sold out again?
Argos had a PS5 restock earlier today, but now looks like the £499.99 Disc Edition Bundle with Forbidden Horizon West is already sold out in some places. As we’ve said many times before, the way Argos restocks PS5 consoles makes it hard to tell if stock is truly available or not. We saw consoles available for collection and delivery for two postcodes earlier, but now they are both showing as out of stock.
Some readers may still be able to see the consoles available to them, while others will be in the same situation as us. As such, we can only say that PS5 consoles appear to be available on Argosbut stock levels vary by geographic location.

When will Smyths Toys have a PS5 restock?
There is currently no PS5 stock available on the Smyths Toys website, but it says more consoles are expected to arrive in July. This applies to the PS5 Disc Edition alone, as well as a handful of Disc Edition bundles. The cheaper PS5 Digital Edition hasn’t been available from Smyths Toys for some time, and the website only vaguely says that more stock will arrive at some point in 2022.

Will Game get a PS5 restock soon?
Game has had more PS5 restocks in recent weeks than any other retailer. The latest batch of consoles landed on Game’s website on Monday, June 12, and the previous two also arrived on Monday.
Game also occasionally restocks its website on a Wednesday, but restocks later in the week are very rare, with the last Thursday restock taking place on April 28 and the last Friday restock being February 18.
As such, expect to see a PS5 restock of Game today, or early next week, potentially Monday July 4th.

How to get a PS5 voucher code from BT
BT is giving its customers a helping hand when it comes to securing a PS5. Instead of opening the virtual doors and facing a rush like other retailers, BT sends unique voucher codes to its customers.
If you’re a BT TV customer, for example, or a BT Sport subscriber, you can request to receive a PS5 voucher code. These are emailed sporadically and can be used to access a PS5 the next time the BT store has a restock. You still have to pay the normal price, of course, but this system is a convenient way to reward BT customers and give them a better chance of getting a console.
