PS5 restock UK – live: Amazon PS5 consoles out of stock, AO and Argos could be available this week
Update: Amazon’s replenishment is now depleted, Argos and AO.com may follow. Read on for more information.
The PS5 console has been released over six months ago now, but no one could have predicted how difficult it would be to buy one.
Replenishment issues have plagued Sony since the initial reveal, and despite stores reopening in the UK, it’s still very difficult to secure a console in-store (and not easy online, either).
But, this is not all bad news; the resupply landscape has started to improve in recent weeks. While June didn’t bring the same monster drops we had in April, last week we saw a long drop at Very, a restock at Asda, and even in-store availability at Game and Smyths Toys. We also saw a drop in Amazon today.
So, if you’re still in the market for the console, 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 bringing you the latest information on rumors from. exit.
You can trust our independent roundups. We may earn commissions from some retailers, but we never allow this to influence selections, which are formed from actual testing and expert advice. These revenues help fund journalism through The independent.

PS5 vs Digital Disc – What’s the Difference?
Therefore Amazon had both the PS5 Disc Edition and the PS5 Digital Edition in stock today. But if you’re new to the world of next-gen console gaming, you might be wondering what the difference is between the two. Well, the differences between the two devices are very subtle. The answer comes down to, well, very little. As the name suggests, the only thing that sets “Disc Edition”, which has an “Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc Player” (the same as on the PS4) from the other, is that ‘she has a disk drive and the price. This means that you cannot play any of your PS4 discs on the Digital Editing Console.
The regular on-disc edition of the PlayStation 5 costs £ 449, while the digital edition, without the disc player, is cheaper and costs £ 359.

eBay PS5: Should You Buy From The Website?
If you’re tired of trying to get a PS5 from all the major retailers, you might be considering heading to eBay to buy one instead. Despite this never-ending drought on PS5, consoles on eBay are still more expensive than they should be – often bloated by more than a few hundred pounds. Scalpers also drive high prices on eBay, with sellers using bots to buy the consoles in bulk to resell them in the marketplace. If that was us, we’d be avoiding eBay when buying a PS5, largely because it gives us the jeebies knowing we could fuel the scalper market.

What is Amazon Smile?
If you’ve been following this blog for awhile, you’ve probably heard us talk about ordering the PS5 at Amazon Smile every time there is a drop. But what is Amazon Smile? It’s basically the same site as the regular Amazon website with all of the same products. Except on Amazon Smile, the Amazon Foundation donates 0.5% of your purchase to a charity of your choice. We recommend that you try to verify from Smile, as the site receives less traffic and you should not have the same verification errors that you encounter on the main website. Thanks for coming to our conference Ted.

When will the next Smyths PS5 drop take place?
Last week, Smyths Toys became the last retailer to start offering in-store pre-orders, announcing on Twitter that the number of consoles available was limited. We don’t know if there is still availability, but it’s worth taking a look at your local to find out. A phantom online drop may just have happened for the console’s disc edition, with a Twitter account posting that the console had fallen on the retailer’s site, before quickly removing it.
Are we about to see a Smyth drop online? We cannot see the console available for collection or home delivery on the Smyths website for now, but we’ll keep our eyes open.

Amazon PS5 stock is now exhausted
Well, that was fast – probably one of the fastest Amazon drops we’ve ever seen, probably due to the fact that there were only two consoles on offer (no Ratchet & Clank bundle), and that it has been fairly dry for PS5 drops for the past seven days. Still, some of you have managed to get a console. Others, on the other hand, have encountered payment problems.
What could we see next? Hopefully we will have an online filing on Argos and AO very soon as well. We will keep you updated with all the news as it arrives. Stay tuned!

Amazon PS5 Disc Edition Live Now
And now, the disc edition of the PS5 is now in stock on Amazon! The console costs £ 449.99 (Amazon.com). If it hasn’t appeared to you yet, keep refreshing the page – it often uploads in the background before it uploads to the front end.
Our best advice is to make sure you are using 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.

Amazon PS5 Digital Edition Replenishment Now Available!
The digital edition of the PS5 is now in stock on Amazon! You can buy it for £ 359.99 (Amazon.com). The digital edition always seems to fall before the disc, so the disc edition should fall next.
- 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

What PS5 stock drops can we expect today?
Hello PS5 researchers! Yesterday was pretty disappointing in terms of PS5 drops, with no retailer having replenishment online. However, we’ve seen a drop in Argos in-store, which could be the direction things go in the future.
What online drops could we see today? We hope to get a replenishment at Amazon and potentially drops at AO and Argos. Keep your eyes on our blog and we’ll deliver the goods as they arrive.

A recap of today’s PS5 stock market events
If you walked into your local Argos today and were able to purchase a PS5, then thumbs up! We know that a lot of people have been successful in packing consoles in store this month. Unfortunately, we didn’t have an online drop today, but hopefully our fortunes will change tomorrow. We still hope to see drops online at Argos, Amazon and AO so this week, we’re going to be keeping our fingers crossed.
We’ll be back here tomorrow for some more PS5 stock tracking action. Until then, good night!
