Since its launch in 2020, the PlayStation 5 has been notoriously hard to get. Supply chain issues resulting from the global pandemic have crippled 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 and several independent retailers being 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 providing details on the best games and accessories to grab with your new console, as well as the latest game reviews.
If you want to know which online retailers will be restocking first, keep scrolling to get updates as they come.

The PS5 is once again sold out on Amazon
The PS5 bundle with Forbidden Horizon Westadded to from Amazon this morning is still out of stock. This drop was a surprise for two reasons. First, because Amazon almost always restocks the PS5 on a Wednesday, and second, because the retail giant also used today to release some early Prime Day deals.
Although Prime Day itself doesn’t arrive until July 12, Amazon couldn’t help it and today reduced the prices in his store.
