PS5 Restock UK: GAME PS5 stock countdown, Amazon and Argos PlayStation 5 news
UPDATE: The latest prediction being shared online is that there will be a GAME PS5 stock drop on July 8, as published below.
According to reports from PS5 Stock Alert UK, there will be up to 8,000 consoles to buy on Thursday, with the drop expected to begin between 8am BST, and 11am BST.
ORIGINAL: The next major PS5 stock drop is expected to happen on Thursday, July 8, with thousands of consoles possibly releasing simultaneously.
That’s the latest news from leading stock tracker accounts, with new predictions also being made for Argos and Amazon UK for later in July.
From what has been shared so far, GAME will be the next UK retailer to offer buying options.
Like most of the information shared, this comes as a prediction from a third-party source, meaning it needs to be taken with a pinch of salt.
But based on the track record from the likes of PS5 Stock Alert on Twitter, it will be worth being ready on July 8.
A message shared by PS5 Stock Alert on Twitter reads: “GAME has confirmed a new date for the PlayStation 5.
“If you select Priority Insured delivery, your order will be shipped by the 14th July, all other delivery methods will be shipped by the 21st July. We expect GAME to go live 8th July.”
So anyone hoping to buy a console this week should be prepared on Thursday, starting at 8am BST.
Other options are also expected to be available this week, including buying PlayStation 5 consoles in-store.
The best thing to do will be to check out your local GAME stores on Twitter or by calling them directly to see if they have any plans for stock this week.
Both Argos and Amazon UK have been connected to stock drops in July; however, they will not be ready to offer any shipments this week.
Instead, Argos is expected to release its stock around July 16, with PS5 Stock Alert UK suggesting that it will have another 10,000 units to sell.
Some of these will be shared with other regions, and it’s unclear if more will be switched between online and in-store.
And it should be noted that Amazon isn’t expected to do the same until around July 14.
Knowing when a PS5 restock is happening can be vital, but it’s also worth finding out how each retailer handles its shipments.
And here are a few examples of how best to try and buy a PlayStation 5 console from leading UK retailers:
AMAZON UK: Amazon UK runs better under strain but still comes with a few kinks worth mentioning. Having an account set up with your card details is a good start, and gamers should also try adding a console to their wishlist before checking out. More stock is expected during July.
ARGOS: The Argos website is notorious for crashing and being unable to complete purchases when site traffic is high. Stock trackers suggest using the mobile Argos app and keeping an eye on local store listings.
GAME: GAME is a UK retailer that offers the most regular stock updates for PS5 consoles. However, console hunters have been warned to use Guest Checkout, as this option is less likely to crash when completing a purchase. The next PS5 stock update is expected to start in early July.
