PS5 stock FAQ

Why is there so little PS5 stock?

The pandemic created huge demand for gaming products, while supply and production changes were heavily impacted. Sony have done an admirable job of producing as many PS5s as they have, and the sales numbers suggest its already on track to match the PS4, which has become one of the most successful consoles of all time. The difference this time is that demand is that much higher.

When will PS5 stock be at a steady level?

We're starting to notice that stock lasts longer than it did a few months ago hopefully meaning eventually supply should meet demand. We're unsure when this will be but due to demand probably rising over the Christmas period we wouldn't expect an equilibrium until some time into 2022. By that point, those desperate to get their hands on the console early should have managed to get one, and Sony should have fine tuned their production process so they're able to produce greater numbers of units.

We've already seen the price of re-sold consoles on sites like eBay dropping quite rapidly, to the point where mass-buying and re-selling consoles, or scalping, is rapidly becoming unprofitable. When that point is reached, stock should become much more readily available.

When is the next PS5 stock drop?

We'll update the top of this post with all the latest rumours of stock. You can also sign up to email alerts and Discord on our main PS5 page, as well as follow our social channels for up-to-the-second updates on stock.

How long do PS5 stock drops last?

The issue with getting a PS5 so far hasn't so much been the lack of stock drops - as you can see in our recent stock releases above, there are regular stock drops. The issue has been how quickly they've sold out. In most cases, unless you either anticipated the stock drop in advance or were extremely lucky and happened upon the retailer in question within a minute of the stock dropping.

Thankfully, stock has started to last a little longer. You still need to be early, particularly if the retailer uses a queue, but in some instances we've seen stock last for over an hour. The bottom line is - don't give up even if you're met with a hefty wait time when you first hit the queue.

Finding a PS5 console - retailer by retailer

PS5 stock remains extremely scarce, but here's some helpful hints on what to expect from each of the UK's major retailers when it comes to PS5 bundle re-stocks:

GAME PS5 bundles

  • Of all the major retailers, GAME have had the most reliable and plentiful re-stocks of the PS5.
  • GAME re-stocks typically occur between the morning and midday, from about 8am.
  • They've also been typically launching a second, smaller batch of consoles (likely as a result of failed orders earlier in the day) at around lunchtime to 2PM.
  • When stock is available, they implement a queue system - getting in early to the queue is vital, as it can stretch up to several hours of wait time
  • When stock is available, you'll typically be able to see the bundles available - clicking on one of these will then activate the queue. You aren't limited to the bundle you clicked once you're through the queue, but it can help speed the process up if you select the bundle you want.
  • Consoles by themselves go out of stock much faster than bundles. If you've got the budget, we recommend focusing on bundles - don't despair if the consoles on their own go out of stock.

Amazon PS5 bundles

  • Amazon have done a couple of re-stocks of the PS5, and we expect these will become more frequent as the stock situation eases.
  • They implement no queue system - the stock will simply appear on site, likely on the same page you're able to navigate to at any point in time which states the PS5 is 'Currently unavailable'.
  • In the past, Amazon's re-stocks have typically occurred between mid-morning and mid-afternoon.

Currys PS5 bundles

  • Currys have had, after GAME, the most frequent re-stocks of the console.
  • Like GAME, Currys will implement a site-wide queue when they have stock. Unlike GAME, however, you will have no option to browse the bundles before going into the queue; the Currys queue is site-wide, and you'll need to go through it before you can access any area of the site.

Argos PS5 bundles

  • Argos have had a couple of small PS5 re-stocks since the console launched in November.
  • It's been extremely difficult to predict when these happen - they've typically launched very early in the morning, at around 3am.

Very PS5 bundles

  • Very have had quite a sizeable amount of stock of both the PS5 and Xbox Series X, although it's been a little while since they had a full 'drop' of stock for the PS5.
  • Their site is extremely robust and they do not implement any sort of queue system.
  • All of their bundles are listed on a single page - you simply click the console you want and see the available options down the right-hand side above the add to cart button.
  • As with several of the other retailers listed, stock on bundled options tends to hang around longer than the console on its own.
  • Re-stocks are hard to predict, though they tend to happen most frequently from mid-morning to mid-afternoon.

eBay PS5 bundles

  • At Gaming Deals, you'll only see eBay listings from approved storefronts - these are almost all stores we've worked with for several years and that have extremely good reputations. Many are the eBay storefronts of retailers such as Argos or Currys.
  • We've seen several re-stocks from such sellers on eBay. These re-stocks have comprised of a new, unopened console (just like you'd buy from another retailer listed here) with lots of add-in games and accessories. 
  • These bundles are expensive, generally coming in at at least £200 more than the console's RRP, but if you're determined to get a console, they're certainly an avenue worth exploring

Blockbuster franchises return in 2021 with exclusive PS5 games

The PlayStation 4 platform i enjoyed a great deal of financial and critical success, having launched in 2013 to quickly sell 100 million units and become the most popular home video game console. November 2020 saw it replaced with the eventual arrival of PlayStation 5, kicking off a totally new generation with lots to look forward to.

Our first look at several PlayStation 5 titles arrived almost 6 months earlier, and now the raft of exciting next-gen games is starting to heat up. Two of the PS4’s biggest exclusives, Marvel’s Spider-Man and Horizon Zero Dawn are both getting sequels (Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Horizon II: Forbidden West). Major new projects from third party studios include Sledgehammer Games’ Call Of Duty: Vanguard, FromSoftware's Elden Ring and Capcom’s Resident Evil Village. We’re also seeing entries in the classic PlayStation series, with a fourth mainline Crash Bandicoot game and a new Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart released.

The most powerful PlayStation console released

The next generation of consoles will bring with it a much higher level of graphical fidelity, with further refinements made to reduce load times and push faster frame rates. The PlayStation 5 will achieve this using a bespoke 8-core AMD chipset and a custom SSD. PSVR will also continue to be supported, with all pre-existing headsets compatible with PS4 already confirmed to work with PlayStation 5. We’ll know for sure in a few short months, but PS5 will be the most powerful PlayStation ever.

Two models to choose from

Though the PS4 has embraced two console models side by side – the Slim and more powerful Pro – it’s been traditional that new consoles have launched with only one model. However, that is no longer the case with the PS5. Launching alongside a traditional console that features a Blu-ray disc drive is the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition, which features no drive and will instead rely on digital downloads of games.  While we don’t yet have pricing information, we can be confident that the Digital Edition will come in at a lower price point, much like the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition has.

A revised controller design for PlayStation 5

A next-gen PlayStation console requires a truly advanced controller, right? That's why the DualSense replaces the Dualshock as the PlayStation 5’s official gamepad of choice, shaking up the design and baking in several new modern features that make for the ultimate immersive experience. Adaptative triggers on the L2 and R2 buttons, for example, allows the controller to depict the feel of in-game actions as realistically as possible. As such, drawing back a bowstring or firing a gun delivers the appropriate haptic feedback.

The DualSense PS5 controller also features a built-in mic, removing the need for players to use a dedicated headset for chat. Then you have the revised lightbar and touchpad design, which is a lot less garish compared to how the DualShock 4 handled the concept. Also gone is the dedicated “Share” button, now replaced by the ominous “Create” button that PlayStation has yet to elaborate on outside of teasing how it will offer “new ways for players to create epic gameplay content to share with the world”. The DualSense controller will arrive alongside PlayStation 5 later this year.
