The latest on replenishing the PS5 for Argos, Currys and GAME
So far this week there have been no major PS5 additions hosted by Argos, GAME, Currys or Amazon UK.
And while we’re still very early in January, stock trackers have already warned that the big PS5 replenishment won’t happen in the coming days.
According to the latest news on the topic being shared, we will get the major stock updates in the second half of January 2022.
According to PS5 Stock UK on Twitter – a reliable source of news on the latest stock drops – this is due to the busy December market.
In a new post shared online, PS5 Stock UK revealed why gamers may have to wait longer than usual for a major stock drop from the likes of Argos, telling its followers:
“PS5 stocks have been quiet in the UK lately; however, retailers are expected to restock the console in the second half of January 2022.
“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.
Does this mean 2022 will be a worse year to try and buy a PlayStation 5 console?
Well, there are promising signs that more of the key items will be available for Sony and Microsoft when it comes to this year’s holiday season.
The latest update on the situation was shared by AMD CEO Lisa Su, with the company being one of the main suppliers of components for the PlayStation and Xbox consoles.
The good news is that AMD plans to ramp up its own supply chain, which can only be good news for those still trying to buy a PS5.
In a new statement shared at an AMD investment meeting, Lisa Su noted, “Well, I think — first, I think the console business, this console cycle and everything when you look at it as a whole has been great. .
“I mean, if you think about the strength of the cycle, we’re kind of deep into second year now and the fact that the demand is so high. I mean, we shipped a lot of products.
“So the fact that demand is still high says something about the product capabilities that both Microsoft and Sony have captured in this console cycle. We continue to ramp up production. We expect 2022 to be another strong year of growth for consoles.
“If you look at the typical console cycle, the peak year is actually the fourth year. And so you would expect that 2023 might be the peak year.”
Adding: “But overall, look, it’s a great platform. We love the fact that we have so many users using AMD technology on the console platform and we will continue to expand the offering. And from a seasonality point of view, yes, you’re right. Seasonality gets more muted in this environment until we get to sort of a more normalized environment.”
The increasing supply of critical parts could mean more consoles hit the market in 2022, though fans will have to wait and see if this pays off.
