PS5 availability is slowly starting to improve in the UK, with the likes of PlayStation Direct, Very, GAME, and Amazon now restocking the console fairly regularly. This means there are now healthy amounts of time available from when the stock goes live, to when it goes out of stock.
Even then, PS5 consoles usually come back fairly quickly now, so this could be the end of the stock shortage in the UK. Xbox Series X is already widely available as well, so the PS5 shouldn’t be far behind. I’ll be keeping this article updated daily with new stock availability in the UK, so keep an eye out for any updates, or you can follow @IGNUKDeals as well for live notifications when stock is available.
LIVE: PS5 Stock Availability in the UK
PS5: Amazon Prime Members Get Priority
Amazon is a fairly popular retailer for obtaining a PS5, especially since it’ll likely arrive within 1-2 days – an exceptionally quick delivery. You’ll need to be a Prime Member to get access to any PS5 drops at Amazon, but it’ll likely be worth it.
The only downside with Amazon is it’s the only retailer where the console will still sell out within minutes. My best suggestion is to follow @IGNUKDeals and sticking the notifications on. I’ll tweet immediately when it’s available and hopefully, this will start to happen even more as stock becomes increasingly available in the UK.
How to Get a PS5 in the UK
Follow IGN UK Deals on Twitter for PS5 Stock Updates
For the most up-to-the-second information about where you can find PS5 in stock at any given time, you’ll want to follow @IGNUKDeals on Twitter. I’ll post whenever stock becomes available, and with stock becoming even more available, you’ll likely have plenty of time to complete your checkout now.
Be Logged Into Retailer Websites
When an online retailer gets PS5 in stock, it seems like everyone on the planet is scrambling to lock in their order. Retailer websites often become ultra-buggy thanks to all the stress on their servers. Your best bet for getting a PS5 when orders become available is to already be logged into your account, and to have your credit card information saved there. That way you won’t waste precious seconds entering your credit card number, billing address, etc. while everyone around you is successfully checking out.
PlayStation Days of Play Sale in the UK
The Days of Play sale is coming to an end on June 8. so this is your last chance to pick up the absolute best PS5 game, accessory, or controller deal this summer. As always, my favourite deal right now is on DualSense Controllers, with both white and midnight black versions of the controller still down to £46.99 (dropping from £64.99).
