PS5 Christmas Restock Live Alerts (Image: GETTY SONY)

PS5 consoles should be back in stock this week, and just in time for Christmas.

With Christmas getting closer and closer, PlayStation 5 customers only have a short time to order and have a PS5 console delivered.

Even worse, after a busy month of restocking in November, last week’s PS5 stock drops were rare.

Fortunately, things are looking a little better for the next week, or at least if Monday 6 December has something to offer.

Playstation Direct has already topped up the PS5, offering a batch to customers via email, followed by another to the general public.

To be in with a chance of winning an invite, visit the PlayStation website and sign in to your account. Once logged in, click on notifications, select ‘receive email notifications’ and save.

It’s not uncommon for PlayStation Direct to go live multiple times in the same week, so keep an eye out for those emails.

Likewise, BT/EE customers have been invited to buy the PS5, so it’s worth checking out if you fall into this category.

You can see links below for all the major stores likely to stock the PS5.

Where to buy a PS5 in the UK?

GAME – PS5 Consoles, Bundles

GAME was one of the best places to buy a PS5 in the UK in 2021. GAME sells the PS5 Digital (£359.99) and PS5 Disc (£449.99) consoles separately, as well as a range of bundles of accessories, games and more.

FROM £359.99

Argos – PS5 Disc

Argos was the other best place to buy a PS5 in the UK this year. One of the best things about ordering a PS5 from Argos is that customers were able to pick up a shiny new PS5 console from their local Argos store not too long after placing their order.

Argos – PS5 Digital

Unlike GAME, Argos typically only sells standalone PS5 consoles. The cheapest PS5 purchase option from Argos is the PS5 Digital console, which costs £359.99. With previous restocks, Argos has offered both same-day in-store pick-up and home delivery.

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.

Currys – PS5 Ordering Hub

Currys is another UK retailer that has taken orders for the PS5 this year. A VIP code is required for most 2021 Curry’s online orders. But we’ll have to wait and see if this schedule changes as PS5 stock – hopefully – becomes more readily available.

FROM £359.99

EE – PS5 code required

As with parent company BT, EE also sells the PS5 to its customers. But you must register your interest, have received a code and also be an existing customer with a handset subscription that falls within the first 17 months of their contract.

While some PS5 add-ons have been purchased through the conventional online route, other customers have had to call the store to place an order. You can head over to the AO PS5 store to find the latest deals currently being bought online.

Elsewhere, it’s been a few weeks since Amazon restocked the PS5, so it wouldn’t be surprising if we saw a stock drop over the next few days.

Argos, meanwhile, has just received a shipment of PS5 consoles, both on disc and digital.

Unfortunately, though, it looks like the actual stock drop won’t happen until next week, though there’s a chance we’ll get one on December 10. Express Online will monitor the situation and update this article with the latest developments.

“PlayStation 5 (Argos) Exclusive News. Argos has received both Disc and Digital Editions of PS5 consoles and is currently being distributed to local stores,” reads a PS5 UK Stock tweet.

“Once these distributions are complete, we should see an online and in-store drop either on the 10th or between the 14th-17th.”

As for GAME, the UK retailer was one of the few stores to restock the PS5 last week, so don’t expect another drop in stock this week.

There’s a chance Currys will go live with a PS5 stock drop, though it will only be available to VIP customers.

If you would like to purchase your own PS5 VIP Pass directly from the store, please visit the Currys website and sign up for a chance to buy a PS5 in the future.

If you can’t sign up or don’t receive an email, it’s worth checking the PS5 UK Stock account, which provides followers with unwanted codes donated by other customers.

If you’re really desperate, it’s worth trying the second-hand market, especially now that prices are starting to drop.

CEX, eBay and Cash Converters all have PS5 consoles in stock and ready to ship, although you’ll have to pay a little more than the recommended retail price.

It’s also worth bookmarking some of the more popular stock checking accounts for even more warnings and information.

This includes Digital Foundry Deals, Stock informant, PS5 UK Stock – Instant Updates, PS5 UK Stock and Express Gaming – the latter of which will have live updates throughout the week.

Some of the accounts mentioned above have Discord groups for PS5 customers, while some have live streams and alerts on sites like YouTube.

PlayStation 5 shopping tips when buying GAME…

• Familiarize yourself with the bundles so you know which one to target first: obscure bundles are easier to get, standalone bundles almost impossible. [GAME]

• Click on warning as soon as possible to your first bundle of choice, this will put you in the queue. [GAME]

• If it says it failed at checkout, it means the bundle is now OOS. So go back to the bundles and pick another one. [GAME]

• Paying too much too soon will give you a 30-60 second timeout, so don’t rush. If this happens, please wait for a while and try again. [GAME]
