PS5 it could be difficult to get stock in the UK over the next few weeks. PS5 restocks in the UK hit record numbers leading up to Christmas 2021, including the longest PlayStation 5 UK restock ever to GAME – lasting over a week. It is believed that the unprecedented number of PS5 additions in the fourth quarter of 2021 in Blighty were all part of a push by Sony to help meet Christmas demand for the PlayStation 5.

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.

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.

However, according to the @PS5StockAlertUK Twitter account, this will lead to falling PS5 stock levels in the first half of this month, as well as falling stock levels for Q1 2022 overall.

In a new update, the PS5 stock tracker account posted: “PlayStation 5 – UK Restock Update.

PS5 stock has been quiet in the UK lately, but retailers are expected to restock the console in the 2nd half of January 2022.

“Why are the restocks slowing down now?

“The UK has seen an unprecedented number of PS5 replenishments during the fourth quarter of 2021 as Sony ramped up console production in time for Christmas, with some major retailers remaining in stock for more than 24 hours.

“This led to PS5 replenishments dropping drastically for Q1 2022.”

After the number of PS5 restocks in the UK in recent months, this will be the last thing anyone who was unsuccessful in the recent restocks will hope to hear.

Especially with the number of high-profile releases that lie ahead for PS5 gamers in 2022.

Horizon Forbidden West will launch in February, with Gran Turismo 7 in March and Forspoken – a new IP from Square Enix – in May 2022, while God of War Ragnarok also launches this year.

Other exclusive games coming to PS5 in 2022 include Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, Sifu, Ghostwire: Tokyo, and Stray.

While multi-format games coming to PS5 in 2022 include Elden Ring, Hogwarts Legacy, Dying Light 2, Saints Row, the next-gen version of Grand Theft Auto 5, and many more.
