Here’s where you can buy a PS5 today

(The Independent)

UPDATE: The PS5 is now in stock at Game, Analysis and The game collection after selling to Buyer. He could restock at Very and curries this week. Read on for more information.

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

Shelves remain sterile and empty, and restocks come and go in the blink of an eye thanks to the global shortage of semiconductors caused by the coronavirus pandemic. That means consoles are still hard to come by, both online and in stores.

But the situation is improving – slowly. Throughout May, one retailer always had the PS5 in stock, with smaller retailers such as Analysis and The game collectionattach suit. That said, you’re out of luck if you’re looking for a standalone PS5 console without any extras. If you’re still looking for a PS5 on its own, we’ll bring you live stock updates as we have them.

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, 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.

PS5 inventory tracking, signing

All good friends, thanks for joining us for another day of console stock sniffing. After a somewhat slow Monday, the PS5 is still in stock at Game, Analysis and The game collection after selling at Ebuyer earlier this morning.

We’ll be back tomorrow morning to bring you even more restocks, and we hope to see a standalone console restock from Very. Talk to you all then!

When could Currys restock the PS5?

(Caris)

It’s been over a month since curries last restocked the PS5, with the retailer dropping a bunch of bundles on Tuesday, April 12. Of course, since the PS5 was sold as part of a bundle, it didn’t sell out until Monday, April 18.

We expect to see another restock from Currys this week, although we’re not sure on what day or what time the retailer might drop. It has been replenished every weekday in the past. Again, Currys next restock will be a bundle drop, so look away if you’re looking for the standalone console.

When could Smyths Toys restock the PS5?

(Smyths Toys)

Smyths Toys is one of the few retailers to have already restocked the console once this month – on Tuesday, May 3. We’ve noticed an interesting trend with Smyths Toys restocks. When it falls very early in the month – between the 1st and 5th, there is usually another one around the second half of the month.

This is all just speculation, but we’ll get to grips with it, as Smyths Toys sells standalone PS5 consoles, including the digital version.

Why are there so many PS5 bundles in stock?

(iStock/The Independent)

It seems retailers these days only sell the PS5 as part of a bundle, making it difficult for console hunters who don’t have the extra cash to buy a standalone console. Why is it?

There are several reasons. The cynic in us tells us that selling the PS5 as part of a bundle means retailers can charge a premium on the console, moving accessories and games along with the machine itself. But it also helps deter scalpers. The non-cynics in us would say that bundles help provide customers with a gaming kit right off the bat, without having to go out and buy anything extra. That would make sense, except fewer people are buying the bundles, so it doesn’t make much sense.

PS5 ebuyer restock sold out

Wow, that was fast. The PS5 is now sold out at Ebuyer. The retailer most likely had very small quantities of the console in stock, but kudos to anyone who managed to get one.

It was the cheapest PS5 bundle we’ve seen all day, so it flew off the shelves. The next best (and cheapest) pack is Game. It’s actually just £10 more than the Ebuyer pack, more details below.

When could Very restock the PS5?

(Very)

Maybe it’s the week, PS5 hunters! If you’ve waited desperately Very to restock and drop off a bunch of beautiful standalone PS5 consoles, your wait may soon be over.

There is a strong chance that Very restock the PS5 tomorrow morning. As we revealed in our PS5 inventory tracking anniversary post, Very loves a Tuesday. And seeing as it hasn’t replenished since April 20, we might be in line for another drop. Keep your eyes peeled for that one, standalone console hunters.

This batch of Scan is also in stock

(Analysis)

If you want a fully kitted out PS5 setup right off the bat, then get a whiff of this bundle of Analysis. It’s not cheap, but you get plenty of accessories alongside the console.

An extra 1TB of storage will be good for those who intend to download a boatload of games to their new console. We recommend getting an SSD even if you don’t want that specific bundle.
