This is where you can buy a PS5 right now

(The Independent)

UPDATE: The PS5 is now in stock at EEthe BT Shop, curries, Studio and The game collection. He could restock at Game and Amazon this week. Read on for more information.

It’s been a year and a half since the PS5 was first released and a year since we started officially tracking PS5 restocks, but we’re all still here, clinging to the dream of owning one of the elusive consoles.

While you still can’t reliably buy a PS5 in store, the situation has improved dramatically online in recent weeks, and that’s led to a nice spike in restocks throughout May, which leaves us thinking that the out of stock might (temporarily?) be over.

Last week saw one of the biggest drops ever, with nine retailers restocking the console, including the BT Shop, curries, John Lewis and partners, To analyse, Asda, Very and Studio. Buying a console on its own is harder than getting a bundle, with standalone consoles selling out in the blink of an eye, but we’re here to help.

Still looking for the elusive PS5 console? Our live blog is here to get you one of Sony’s next-gen consoles, as well as providing details on the best games and accessories to grab with your new machine, plus the latest game reviews. If you want to know which online retailers will be restocking first, keep scrolling to get updates as they come.

A recap of May’s PS5 restocks

Alright, we’ve come to the end of another day of PS5 stock tracking, but more importantly, the end of the best month for declines.

The console has practically been in stock at at least one retailer throughout the month. If we count all the drops individually, taking each day as a new refill, we had a whopping 107 drops this month. Most ever, beating around 60 as Christmas approaches.

But who emerged victorious? Game, presumably, which has been in stock for 23 of the 31 days this month. But you’ll notice something – the three retailers at the top of the list only sell bundles, while Amazon, Asda and PlayStation Direct, which sit near the bottom, only sell standalone consoles.

Appetite for the standalone console is clearly much higher than the pricey bundles sold by Game and indie retailer The Game Collection. In any case, the PS5 shortage is clearly improving, and it could be resolved very soon here in the UK. Anyway, that’s just a bit of analysis for you. Here is the ranking:

The game may soon restock the PS5

(The Independent)

Game put all his Forbidden Horizon West bundles on their website, but we don’t seem to be adding any to our cart at this time.

With consoles back online, we should see another restock at Game very soon. The cheapest plan listed on its website is the Forbidden Horizon West bundle, which costs £499.99 (Game.co.uk) – this would make Game the cheapest place to buy the console if it came back in stock.

Yesterday morning, Amazon lists new PS5 bundles with Forbidden Horizon West. This is the retailer’s first time bundling the console with the game, so hopefully it will release standalone consoles as well when it drops this bundle.

The bundle appearing on Amazon’s website gives us hope for another restock from the retail juggernaut this week, and we’re currently looking at a June 1 restock. We’ll let you know if the page has any new information, but for now, add this thing to your wishlist.
