PS5 UK stock – live: latest replenishment updates from Tesco, Game, Argos and more
September PlayStation System Software Updates – New Features for PS5, PS4 and Mobile App
The PS5 launched in November 2020, but supply issues and a global chip shortage have slowed production of Sony’s next-gen console. New stock is hard to find, and when it does show up, the PS5 sells out in the blink of an eye.
August was one of the best months ever for the PS5 restocking, with several drops at Very, Smyths Toys, BT, and EE, as well as availability at Argos, Amazon, and Game. There were about 35 drops in total. This month has already been impressive, with drops on AO.com, Ace Studio and ShopTo and Currys PC World in the first week. We’ve also seen stocks at BT and Smyths Toys, and earlier this week we had big dips at Game, Very, and Argos. And after?
If you’re still looking for a PS5, you’ve come to the right place. Our liveblog is here to give you the latest information on Playstation 5 restockings from all major UK retailers, both online and in store, as well as providing details on release rumors, the latest PS5 games and accessories to buy.

And with that, we end for the evening. Did you manage to race a PS5 via the Currys PC World VIP code system? Maybe a PS5 has found its way into your local Smyths branch? If not, then don’t panic. We’ll be back tomorrow to share anything we can on how to get you a PlayStation 5.

Sony does not allow any VPN apps like NordVPN Where ExpressVPN download from PlayStation Store – and in fact VPNs aren’t supported at all on the PS5 platform – but there is still a way to use a VPN on the console if you want to stream geo-content. restricted.
We recommend that you use a VPN with the Smart DNS feature. It’s a service provided by a number of VPN companies, including NordVPN, that allows you to spoof your location on devices that don’t support VPN, like a PS5. You can read our overview of best VPNs for more information.

How to find local PS5 stock at Smyths
PS5 restockings aren’t limited to online retailers, and we recommend shoppers regularly check for fresh inventory at their local stores. Smyths Toys has a useful online tool for this, where you can search for PS5 stock in each of the retailer’s UK stores.
Of course, you might not want to travel the country to buy yourself a PS5, but if a pre-ordered console isn’t sold at a local store, the Smyths website will tell you.
We just checked and the website doesn’t show any PS5 stock at any Smyths stores, but don’t give up hope as consoles are added sporadically throughout the day.

Pre-ordered consoles arrive at Smyths Toys
Good news for anyone who successfully ordered a PlayStation 5 during the last restocking on September 8: your console is ready to be picked up.
We hear that buyers will be contacted by Smyths to pick up their consoles at a local store, starting today.
The 8 was the last PS5 replenishment seen by Smyths, and came after drops on August 3, 4, and 17. We were initially hoping for a second or even third restocking of the PS5 for Smyths this month, but the website currently says buyers will have to wait until October.

The best games for your PS5
Congratulations to everyone who has successfully purchased a PS5 at Game, Very and Argos this week. With the console now heading for your door, you’ll want some games to go with it. Fortunately, we have a round-up of the best ps5 games, just for you.
In the bestseller Spider-Man: Miles Morales Game (£ 44.99, Currys.fr), Peter Parker is replaced by his awkward teenage protégé, Miles Morales. A new generation spin-off, Spider-Man: Miles Morales “refines the formula of the original,” our reviewer said, adding, “This is a streamlined adventure with a more focused story, much less busy work, and an endearing, goofy protagonist who still has his powers under control. “
During this time, Demon souls (£ 57.99, Currys.fr) on PS5 is a showcase of what the powerful new console is capable of. “The oppressive Gothic architecture, gaping arches and festering dungeons of this cult classic look spectacular on the new hardware, while still staying perfectly true to the aesthetics and vibe of the original game,” said our tester.

When was the last time Smyths Toys had a PS5 restock?
Smyths Toys may be one of the smaller retailers selling PS5 stock, but it has also been among the most reliable. The store had two PS5 restockings in June, followed by three in August. So far we’ve seen a re-supply of Smyths this month, September 8th.
That leaves plenty of time for another drop to land before the end of the month, but Smyths calls for caution and is currently saying new stock is expected in October. Smyths also explains how pre-orders from the last release will be fulfilled by September 24, so those lucky enough to grab a PS5 shouldn’t have too long to wait.
