With so many people looking for a new console in 2021, Sony is struggling to keep up with demand, making PS5 restock events important for those trying to get their hands on one.
The good news is that more PS5 inventory is reportedly falling in October, and several major retailers are expected to offer shipments.
September ended with a deluge of PlayStation 5 sales, including from Amazon, GAME and Argos.
And since these have ended, thousands more consoles are expected to be offered, both in-store and online.
Very, Smyths and ShopTo are predicted to be the next UK retailers to restock the PS5.
This can happen between October 5 and October 7, depending on each store’s internal plans.
It’s not the most solid forecast of the month, and chances are only one of these stores will be ready to hand out consoles.
The news was shared by PS5 Stock UK – a reliable stock tracker account on Twitter – known for providing the best guides on what happens next.
They also revealed that in October 2021, Currys will be offering more stock that will not be open to the general public to buy online.
Instead, those who have signed up for the Currys VIP services and have already secured a place on the list will have the chance to purchase a console later this month.
BT is another retailer that will be restocking the PS5 this month, but this again depends on the accounts and services you have with the company.
John Lewis is another possible source for the PlayStation 5 console, but is only expected to ship a small number of consoles this month.
The message PS5 Stock UK posted on Twitter reads: “We could see a possible drop in Very, Smyths Toys and ShopTo in the coming days. There is no specific date yet as this is just our own personal speculation as we look back at BT Oct 4-5 Curries is expected to ship on October 24 for VIP winners waiting.
PS5 Stock is coming to the UK in October
“John Lewis expects to receive PlayStation 5 consoles on 10/15, indicating a possible online restock a few days before or after the 15th. Disc and Digital Editions are expected with the following inventory level: Disc (<700) | Digital (<300).”
Other retailers such as Argos, Amazon and GAME are expected to receive more PS5 stock in October, but it’s unclear what dates these new consoles will be available to buy.
Knowing when a PS5 replenishment is due can be vital, but it’s also worth knowing how each retailer handles their shipments.
And here are a few examples of how best to try and buy a PlayStation 5 console from leading UK retailers:
ARGOS: The Argos website is notorious for crashing and not being able to complete purchases when there is a lot of site traffic. Inventory trackers recommend using the Argos mobile app and keeping an eye on local store listings.
AMAZON UNITED KINGDOM: Amazon UK works better under tension, but still has a few kinks worth noting. Creating an account with your card details is a good start, and gamers should also try adding a console to their wish list before checking out.
GAME: GAME is a UK retailer offering the most regular stock updates for PS5 consoles. However, console hunters have been warned to use Guest Checkout as this option is less likely to crash when completing a purchase. There are no new dates for when the next PS5 restock will take place.
