When are PS5 restocking UK 2021: Argos, Very, Amazon, Currys, Game, Smyths and more

People have been waiting since November to get their hands on the PS5 console

The Playstation5 console remains out of stock at retailers across the UK, with shoppers slamming creator Sony for its lack of update.

After pre-orders sold out in minutes and shoppers were met with website glitches back in November 2020, many have been left wondering if and when the device would ever come back into stock.

In December, Sony announced that more Playstation 5 stock would be available in stores before the end of 2020, though only Amazon seemed to get stock.

Now, shoppers are calling Sony out asking where the UK's stock is.

Another, @Gorjus_George said: "@Sony @AskPS_UK got to say this has been the worst launch ever for sony the ps5 constantly out of stock uk not had any stock since dec 3rd am slightly given up on it now."

@Consciousnotes wrote: "What a joke trying to get ps5 stock in the UK," while @Ed_Sutton92 said: "@PlayStationUK your stock of the playstation 5 in the UK Is actually appalling no PS5s in the last 2 months."

However, some shoppers remain hopeful and continue to search online for PS5 stock.

Twitter accounts which frequently keep an eye out for stock are claiming PS5 consoles could be dropping into stores this week, around January 13 or 14.

Stock can come and go in minutes so it's best to keep checking and to make sure you have accounts set up with the main retailers and a payment method ready to go.

We've taken a look at the latest updates from the retailer's most likely to get stock, and here's what we found:

John Lewis

A statement on the John Lewis website said: "Thank you to everyone who has visited us and placed an order for a PS5. We are now out of stock.

"Unfortunately, PlayStation 5 consoles will not be available for purchase at our John Lewis & Partners shops or from our contact centres."

Online retailer Very shared a statement to its website, which reads: "Unfortunately we have sold out of our PS5 consoles for now. We have more stock coming so keep checking back for our next drop."

Smyths

Smyths has now sold out of its allocated stock. A message on the retailer's website says that PS5 stock is now not expected until January 2021, meaning a restock could be arriving any day now.

According to Twitter user @MoonsUGN, who frequently shares PS5 stock updates, Smyths is expecting stock this month.

Game

Game no longer has PS5 stock available, with no update on when new stock will arrive.

Though, as one of the leading gaming retailers on the market, we’d expect Game to be among the first to have new stock.

Currys

A note on Curry's website says the retailer is "working tirelessly to secure more stock" and customers should check back for updates.
