PS5 UK stock latest – Playstation 5 back IN STOCK at Smyths, Argos, Currys, Very, Amazon and Game – live updates

PLAYSTATION 5's back in stock at several locations in the UK, it was revealed this morning.

Rumours have been circulating for days that Argos, Very and Game were due to bag new stock – and the stores confirmed new supplies this morning.

Although Very were also confirmed to have new stock, they have since been paused pre-orders leaving customers confused.

Meanwhile, GAME is offering PS5 pre-order bundles suggesting a live stock release is imminent while Argos restocked their website at 3am this morning, upsetting many customers who branded the tactic "sneaky".

"What’s the rationale behind the decision to keep releasing PS5 stock at 3/4am? It’s clear from how preorders and launch day went that there’s groups of resellers using bots. Releasing at 4am only makes it harder for the average person to have a chance," one wrote on Twitter.

    WHEN WILL THE PS5 BE BACK IN STOCK IN THE UK?

    Sony has said it had no stock available for either console.

    “Absolutely everything is sold.”

    Since then it has tweeted that more stock will come by the end of the year.

    The tweet read: “We want to thank gamers everywhere for making the PS5 launch our biggest console launch ever.

    “Demand for PS5 is unprecedented, so we wanted to confirm that more PS5 inventory will be coming to retailers before the end of the year – please stay in touch with your local retailers.”

    PS5 SOLD OUT – WHAT HAPPENED?

    Sony released two new consoles – the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition – in the US on November 12 and in the UK a week later, on November 19.

    Stocks at multiple British retailers ran dry shortly after orders opened on the morning of launch day.

    Boasting 8K graphics and a powerful processor that almost eliminates loading times, it's no surprise the consoles flew off the shelves.

    Some stores have since released small batches of PS5 stock, but those also went in a flash as word spread across social media.

      TECH NAGGING FROM EIGHT

      Research, conducted via OnePoll, found kids will start asking for tech for Christmas around the age of eight, with one in four beginning to ask for these gifts from as young as five.

      In a bid to appease their children and not disappoint, one in 10 parents are looking to take up another job to help afford the tech they desire.

      And three in 10 are looking to spread the cost of purchases as monthly payments – instead of one bulk payment – meaning they will carry the debt into the new year.

      A further 37 per cent plan to sell old belongings to help make some extra money in the lead up to present buying, with 29 per cent buying second-hand tech.

      EXPENSIVE CHRISTMAS

      Nearly half of children are hoping for the brand-new PlayStation 5, which retails at almost £450, while 43 per cent have their fingers crossed for a set of Apple AirPods, which sell for around £160.

      A third have a new smartphone on their Christmas list this year, and 13 per cent are even asking for the new iPhone 12 – which starts at around £799.

      And a further 41 per cent are wishing for a new smart speaker, which will set their parents back nearly £200, and almost half of youngsters are asking for a tablet costing at least £200.

      MusicMagpie's research, into 2,000 British parents, revealed 62 per cent of four-to-17 year olds are expecting an expensive gadget this year – and in total, the average child wants £938 worth of tech.

      FORTNITE'S NEW SEASON

      Fortnite has kicked off a brand new season after last night's epic Galactus event.

      The Marvel supervillain descended on Fortnite Island – and in his wake, we've been left with a brand new map.

      Epic Games has now unleashed Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 to the world.

      It comes in the form of an app update, so you'll need to install it before you can start playing the new content.

      The new season is being called Zero Point, and is described as follows: “The Zero Point is exposed, but no one escapes the loop, not on your watch.

      “Join Agent Jones and the greatest hunters from across realities like the Mandalorian in a chaotic battle that will shape the future of the Island.”

      MAN PRETENDED PS5 WAS AIR PURIFIER

      A gamer was forced to sell his brand new PS5 after he lied to his wife and told her it was an air purifier.

      The man's failed attempt to trick his wife ended with him having to give up his brand new console, selling it for a cut price.

      According to a report by AsiaOne, the man’s ruse worked at first and his wife was convinced the games console was an air purifier.

      But when a rat died inside the couples home, the PS5 did little to mask the smell – exposing his cunning plan to his wife. 

      The husband's desperate attempt to fool his wife emerged after she made him sell the $450 device to eager game Jin Wu.

      Mr Wu, from Taiwan, explained how he spotted someone flogging the highly sought after PS5, which have been selling out across the world, on Facebook.

      OUT OF STOCK-ING

      Britain will face a Christmas gifts shortage in two weeks.

      Kids will miss out on in-demand gadgets such as PlayStation 5 and the XBox series X and S.

      Shops are also running out of toys, health and beauty products, say experts.

      Many have not been able to restock during the latest lockdown.

      Some shops have cut orders after the first lockdown clobbered trade.

      Millions of items are stuck at ports including Felixstowe in Suffolk, Southampton and London Gateway.

      CEX SLAMMED BY CUSTOMERS FOR SELLING PS5 FOR £815

      High street trade giant CEX has been slammed for selling consoles for £815 – double their standard retail price.

      CEX is also paying out £650 in cash to people bringing PS5s into the shop – £200 more than the console's RRP, to encourage gamers to earn a bit of extra cash by parting with their gear.

      “That price is dreadful,” writes one online customer review, from an account named dontbegreedy.

      “Come on the RRP is £449, you are totally cashing in on this and are no better than the scalpers. Be fair guys yes make a profit I understand you are a business charge £500 but £815 is just far too much.”

      PARENTS EXPECTED TO SPLASH OUT NEARLY £1,000 ON TECH FOR KIDS THIS CHRISTMAS

      Nearly half of children are hoping for the brand-new PlayStation 5, which retails at almost £450, while 43 per cent have their fingers crossed for a set of Apple AirPods, which sell for about £160.

      A third have a new smartphone on their Christmas list this year, and 13 per cent are even asking for the new iPhone 12 – which starts at around £799.

      A further 41 per cent are wishing for a new smart speaker, which will set their parents back nearly £200, and almost half of youngsters are asking for a tablet costing at least £200.

      But more than a third of mums and dads admit they won't be able to afford this much outright – they could, however, afford to spend an average of £16-a-month on a phone for their kids.

      ARGOS PS5 ORDERS CANCELLED AFTER TAKING £450 FROM CUSTOMERS

      The retailer quietly restocked the Christmas must-have between 3am and 4am today sparking a frenzy among gamers to buy a machine, which costs up to £450.

      After handing over the money they later received an email saying the order was cancelled.

      But now the unlucky buyers will have to wait up to seven working days to receive their money back.

      Some shoppers have even claimed they’ve been charged up to three times for the product — leaving them waiting on almost £1,500 to be refunded just weeks before Christmas.

      Argos have been inundated with complaints on their social media pages from raging customers, demanding their money back.

      PS5 TRICK: FIT EVEN MORE GAMES ON YOUR CONSOLE

      After all, games like Call of Duty can take up well over 100GB of storage.

      And even though your PS5 has an 825GB SSD, only 667GB of that is actually usable.

      Plug in an external hard drive or solid-state drive via USB.

      This will immediately boost your storage while the unit is connected to the PS5.

      You can play PS4 games using this method – freeing up space on your PS5 for native games.

      “We released a small amount of additional stock and have seen huge numbers of customers trying to place their orders with us and we have now sold out, we’re sorry for any disappointment this may cause.”

      MADDEN NFL 21 UPDATE AVAILABLE

      American football fans will be delighted to hear that the PS5 update for Madden NFL 21 is now live.
