PS5 UK Stock – Live: Today’s Latest PS5 Replenishment Updates From Smyths, Amazon, Asda, Game And More
PS5 Launch – The Game Has No Limits
The PS5 console was released over six months ago, but if you’re a gamer, you’ll know how difficult it was to get your hands on the latest device.
Replenishment issues have plagued Sony since the reveal, and despite stores reopening in April in the UK as lockdown measures lift, it is still virtually impossible to secure a console in-store.
It has become so difficult for people to get their hands on a PS5 that it spawned a whole Twitter community of stock trackers, as well as a community of Redditors of 24,500 people all trying to get hold of the console before it was released. ‘she never sells again.
But it’s not all bad news, as the resupply landscape has started to improve in recent weeks. We enjoyed some of the best PS5 drops of all time last month, as all major retailers released consoles, including a 20,000-person drop from Game. June is shaping up to be similar, as yesterday we saw two big restockings at Very and Game, with AO, Smyths Toys, Asda and ShopTo expected to follow. John Lewis also released a drop this morning that only lasted four minutes.
Due to high demand, we’re here to help you get your hands on the coveted Playstation by keeping an eye out for all the major retailers, as well as providing you with the latest details on release rumors. Follow live so you don’t miss a thing.

What is Amazon Smile?
If you’ve been following this blog for awhile, you’ve probably heard us recommend checking through Amazon Smile when buying a PS5 multiple times. But what is Amazon Smile?
For the uninitiated, this is basically the same website, but on Amazon Smile, the foundation donates 0.5 percent of any qualifying purchase you make on the site to a charity of your choice. We recommend that you use it because it generates much less traffic than the main site, which gives you a better chance of securing a console. The PS5 is a qualifying product, just to be clear.

ShopTo reportedly has a PS5 release this week
Rumors are growing here aboard the choo-choo PS5 train. The next step is ShopTo, which would have a drop this week. The retailer is apparently only going to release a PS5 pack with Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and Resident Evil Village. The pack is reportedly priced at £ 579.85, but the product page is not live yet. We’ll keep you posted if we hear anything more concrete.

What happened to this resupply of Argos PS5?
We know you’re still angry after staying awake late Monday to wait for that coveted PS5 drop to Argos (us too), but you might have to do it again tonight if you want a PS5.
According to a Twitter PS5 stock tracker, the delay occurred because not all Argos retailers had received their shipments on Monday. This should now be resolved. Once again, rumor has it that the stock is going live tonight between 1am and 2am.

What PS5 drops are we expecting today?
Hello PS5 hunters! While yesterday was quite disappointing in terms of declining inventory – there was only a small restocking at Studio – today could be a big one.
For the record, Wednesdays are always good days for stock drops, and this one couldn’t be different. PS5 stock trackers predict we will have declines at Amazon, Asda and Thu today, with Argos (finally) come overnight.
Amazon and Asda are both expected to drop by 9 a.m., while Game could drop between 9 and 11 a.m. We’ll keep you posted if the rumors come true.

With demand still going strong, we are all looking forward to the next drop. But, Thu is expected to drop this week on Thursday June 17 between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.

Where can I buy a PS5 in the UK?
Ah, the question everyone is asking. Unfortunately, while there was a mini drop at Studio and Ace Studio today, there wasn’t much else, especially since Argos let us down this morning. But, it’s not all bad news – there is more action planned this week.
We keep our fingers crossed for Amazon, which is expected tomorrow. If you want the chance to secure the PS5, follow our helpful tips below:
- Make sure to use Amazon Smile – a separate website that donates part of the cost of your purchase to a charity of your choice. Amazon Smile receives much less traffic than the regular Amazon website, so if there are any issues, Smile should perform better.
- Add the console to your wishlist and then add it to your cart – apparently people are more successful this way

Chances are you are eagerly awaiting the release of Ratchet & Clark: Rift Apart (£ 69.99, Game.co.uk), which was released on June 11. There was so much hype around, with The independentThe video game reporter praising in his review that “this is one of the best looks yet at what the new generation of consoles has to offer. It’s big, it’s shiny, and it’s almost impossible not to like.
But, if you’re looking to breathe new life into a new game, Spider-Man: Miles Morales (£ 44.99, Currys.fr) received high praise in our review of the best PS5 games. “It effortlessly captures the fluid motion style of the web superhero, unlocking the value of an entire city in action in a sleek, sleek and beautiful package on PS5,” our writer noted.

Chances are, you missed yesterday’s replenishment on Ebuyer as it immediately sold out. But fear not, we have some pretty interesting news for you.

Argos PS5 drop in inventory update
News just in, Argos won’t be releasing its PS5 stock tonight. A popular replenishment tracking account, @ PS5UKStock, noted that the retailer’s website will be under maintenance starting at midnight tonight. The account noted that they believed the reason Argos had not restocked as planned this morning was because some small stores had not received stock from the distribution centers.
While it is a real shame that there is no stock sold today or tomorrow, Argos is expected to release its PS5s on Thursday. Crossed fingers!
