Rumor has it that Argos will get a massive new PS5 supply in May
Argos is about to drop a massive PS5 addition. According to the @ PS5Instant Twitter account, Argos has cleared “record” levels of PS5 stock and is ready to go. And after a particularly dry April, where PS5 restocks were rare, it looks like May could be telling a whole different story.
Speaking of the next Argos PS5 supplement, the @ PS5Instant Twitter posted: “# PS5UK shares look promising, Argos has record numbers of shares.”
While discussing when the next Argos supplement could go live, the reliable PS5 stock tracker account said, “We are currently watching # PS5restock at GAME & Argos between May 10-17.”
And it appears that after a long spell of infertility in April, many PS5 shares will hit the market in May.
The @ PS5Instant Twitter said GAME will receive “25,000 units and twice stock” next month.
The account also said Amazon is “planning a major release in mid-May.”
Discussing the PS5 UK stock situation in general in May, @ PS5Instant Twitter had some very good news for stock hunters.
The account tweeted, “May # PS5UK Shipping largest yet. Major retailers are receiving more inventory than ever! Make scalpers lose money!”
Elsewhere, the @ PS5StockAlertUK Twitter also tweeted about the PS5 stock situation in May.
And the account had some very good news for those looking to buy from Argos, with the stock tracker saying the retailer is “doubling” its previous allocations.
The @ PS5StockAlertUK said PS5 stock is expected to appear in Argos warehouses on May 4 and 6 before stock goes live and will be available for purchase on May 11.
May is expected to be a big month for PS5 restocks in the UK
The PS5 Stock UK Twitter addedTo: “The inventory count is now reported as 20K, which is double the previous amounts.”
With previous restocking, Argos divided PS5 shares by region, and it looks like past low-level areas could see this right.
The @ PS5StockAlertUK Twitter posted, “In addition to the Ireland and UK split in Argos’s upcoming May 11th drop, there are some plans for the UK side of things. Areas / regions previously had less inventory compared to other regions will get more stock this time. “
As always with rumors, it is best to take it with a grain of salt until official confirmation.
But both PS5 stock tracker accounts have a strong track record of reliability and have helped countless people secure a PS5 console amid persistent stock shortages.
Argos and GAME were two of the best places to buy a PS5 in the UK in 2021, with Argos customers managing to get a PS5 the same day they ordered it during previous resupply.
The caveat to all this, however, is that Argos restocking will go live in the early hours of the morning – and the last restocking will be available to buy online at 1am UK time.
News of the next Argos addition comes earlier this week after Smyths Toys dropped a surprise PS5 disc and digital addition.
In the wake of this replenishment going live, the PS5 Stock UK Twitter account offered some tips on how to be successful with the upcoming May restocking.
The account wrote, “Smyths Toys has kicked off the upcoming wave of PlayStation 5 restocks, dropping the console today as their own website reported May, so we thought we’d share our top tips on how to get your chances of surprise restocked next week and restocked the week after. “
Here are their top tips …
