Argos and GAME face competition from new PS5 online store (Image: GETTY • SONY)

It’s been a year since the PS5 first launched and Sony’s latest PlayStation console is still hard to come by. There have been numerous occasions where PS5 additions have been picked up in a flash, but during the ongoing stock shortage, there were two clear shining stars: GAME and Argos. Both GAME and Argos have regularly received new stocks in 2021 that outlast their ilk, with many people taking to sites like Twitter in the wake of the stock drops and expressing their joy at finally packing a PS5 console.

While GAME and Argos have long reigned supreme on the PlayStation 5 stock front, they have a new contender that could become the go-to place for PS5 orders.

That’s PlayStation Direct, which launched in Europe last week – after gamers in the US have enjoyed the service for a long time – and early this week the PlayStation Direct website took orders for the PS5 in the UK for the first time. The restock went live around 10am UK time on Monday with both the PlayStation 5 Disc and the digital consoles on sale for £449.99 and £359.99 respectively. A queue was launched for those wishing to purchase a PlayStation 5 with PlayStation Direct, with thousands of people queuing up to purchase the much sought-after console.

Amazon – PS5 Disc Console

Amazon has been a great place to buy the PS5 in the UK this year. However, if you want to be first in line, you’d better update your Amazon Prime subscription. That’s because Prime members tend to get “priority access” to Amazon UK PS5 add-ons.
