Where will PS5 stock be available next?

(The Independent)

Update: PS5 could drop to Argos today and Amazon tomorrow. Read on for more information.

Now that Forbidden Horizon West is finally out, there’s never been a better time to get your hands on a PS5 to experience one of Playstation’s most impressive games to date. But that’s easier said than done.

While this year looks promising for PS5 gamers, with upcoming titles such as like Ring of Elden and Gran Turismo 7 causing huge hype around the console, it’s never been harder to get your hands on a PS5.

More than a year after its launch, customers are still scrambling to get their hands on one due to the global semiconductor shortage caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Sony’s Playstation 5 was released in November 2020 and even though it’s now February 2022, demand for the console is still high. While last week was quite successful in terms of lowering inventory, this still turns out to be the worst month for restocks.

Our live blog is here to bring you one of Sony’s elusive next-gen consoles, as well as provide you with the details on the best games and accessories to grab with your new machine. If you want to know which online retailers will be restocking first, keep scrolling to get updates as they come.

PS5 Inventory Tracking, Log Out

So it’s been another calm today for most of us, except for the handful of people who managed to pick up a PS5 from Argos this morning – you are lucky, lucky things.

A bigger restock is expected tomorrow, with a drop to Amazon potentially on the cards. The retailer hasn’t restocked the disc edition console since January 19, and it hasn’t dropped the digital edition since December last year. It could drop as early as 8:30 a.m., so join us and we’ll walk you through the predicted drop in real time. Good night for now!

How to buy a PS5 on PlayStation Direct

Finally, Sony has opened registrations to buy a PS5 on the PlayStation Direct store to more than US residents. Players in the UK can now register their interest to purchase a PS5 from PS Direct and receive an exclusive invitation to purchase it before stock goes live.

All you need is the email address associated with your PSN account and away you go. Invitations are usually sent out at 8am. All remaining consoles are made available to everyone else around 10 a.m.

What time does Elden Ring come out on launch day in the UK?

According to a new post on the official website Ring of Elden Twitter, Ring of Elden will launch region by region at midnight February 25, 2022 on consoles, which means the game will be playable in other time zones before it hits our shelves.

PC gamers in the UK will be able to play the game from 11pm on February 24, an hour before their console counterparts.

More tips for the planned Amazon PS5 restock

If you’re a frequent visitor to our live blog on PS5 inventory tracking, you’ve probably heard us talk about Amazon smile. For the uninitiated, Amazon Smile is basically the same as the regular Amazon website, except when you buy anything on Smile, 0.5% of your purchase is donated to a charity of your choice.

We recommend checking via Amazon smile because it receives less traffic than the normal website, which means you have a higher chance of copying a PS5 console than the normal site. However, you will still need to be an Amazon Prime subscriber.

The first images of the PS5 VR2 headset have just been revealed


Sony has just released the first images of the PS5 VR2 headset, and it has a similar white and black design scheme to the main PS5 console. The headset has 4K graphics with HDR, a 110 degree field of view and an OLED display with 2000 x 2040 resolution per eye. Frame rates of up to 120Hz also promise smooth visuals.

The built-in cameras track your movement and relative position to your surroundings, and there’s also eye tracking, headset feedback (yes, haptic feedback in the headset itself), 3D audio, and a new PS VR2 sensing controller promising deeper immersion.

Best PS5 Accessories

While we wait for the next PS5 release, why not take a look at our round-up of the best PS5 accessories? We tested the dualsense controller, media remote, expandable SSD and more. One of our standout picks is the PS5 HD Camera (£38.20, Amazon.co.uk).


“If you want to be the next Twitch gaming sensation, the HD camera is a must. It’s remarkably easy to set up – just plug it into a suitable port on your PlayStation 5, then take a moment to line it up so that it perfectly captures your face,” our writer said in his review. “Its style means it ties in with the aesthetics of the PlayStation 5, so it won’t steal attention next to your TV. Once set up, you can press the Share button on your controller and start streaming so viewers can see your facial reactions as you play.

People left with a PS5 in Argos this morning

Some people were apparently able to copy a PS5 from Argos around 4:45-6am this morning as mentioned under a tweet from the @MSTVTweets PS5 stock tracking account.

It’s always worth heading to your local Argos to check if it has stock, or it may still show up on the order page if you’re lucky.

You can pick up a PS5 at some local branches of Game

Get a standalone PS5 console from Game is difficult, but not impossible. The retailer pretty much only sells bundles during its nationwide online releases, but if you’re lucky you can pick up a standalone console in store and be done with all those extra games and accessories.

We recommend you to check this Twitter List, a place where all the regional game stores have been compiled together. Each store tweets whenever they have more PS5s available to pick up on the spot. Only one game store seems to have consoles in stock at the moment.

What time could Amazon PS5 stock drop?

There is a strong chance that Amazon could restock the PS5 tomorrow morning. It tends to drop consoles once a month, and it does more than one month since its last replenishment.

We expect a restock around 8:30. You’ll most likely need to be an Amazon Prime subscriber to buy a PS5 from the retailer, but you can get one. 30 day free trial then cancel once you have purchased your console.
