PS5 stock has returned – but probably not for long – Gamesradar

PS5 stock may be back, but we’ll be damned if we can get to it. It reportedly turned up at Amazon US not that long ago, and, after a frantic rush in the UK over the last few days (it appeared at Currys, ShopTo, and Game, but units were claimed by scalpers in large numbers), it’s potentially due to appear in Argos as well. So, what does this mean? It suggests that more consoles are on the way at major retailers, and soon. With that in mind, we’ve gathered up some quick links below. OK, so it’s not the good news you’ve been waiting for. Nonetheless, it’s better than nothing – especially because stores tend to drop PS5 stock with no warning at all. Keeping a close watch on them and Twitter trends may be your best bet as a result. Just don’t get your hopes up too much. Competition is fierce out there, and it’s hard to predict when new deals will appear.

It’s getting rather exhausting reporting the bad news of genuine PS5 stock hunters joining queues early and in time, to only be booted out or unlucky hours later, experiencing mixed messaging from retailers’ websites. But here we are; 2020 really has rolled right into 2021. However, keep trying as we do have plenty of anecdotal evidence of folks getting lucky! 

This does also indicate that PS5 stock is making it through to retailers this week on both sides of the pond. As such, it’s a good idea to keep a vague eye on the links above ahead of this weekend. If Currys and Game have gotten stock this week, other stores can’t be far behind.

Stock-monitoring account Ps5Instant is also worth watching out for. They’ve been mostly on the money with their assessments so far, and are a good early warning system as a result if you don’t fancy hovering on store pages or trusting to luck (which is entirely fair enough). 

Because it’s been so difficult to get a PS5 up until now, we’ll take any help we can get in tracking them down. The same is true of being able to buy Xbox Series X throughout January – it’s also been nearly impossible to find, though admittedly a little easier to get when it does appear.

Regardless of what happens, be ready to pounce. PS5 stock seems to appear with next-to-no fanfare, and they’re gone within minutes. Don’t give up hope, though. Sometimes sites will throw out an error message if they’re struggling beneath the weight of demand, so keep trying if you don’t succeed at first.

If you don’t manage to pick up the console this week, fear not – keep an eye on our PS5 deals and bundles page for more offers as they appear.
