PS5 UK stock checker – Game to put 8,000 Playstation consoles on sale TODAY, plus latest at Argos, Smyths and more

TWO major UK retailers are expected to drop huge PlayStation 5 restocks this week.

GAME UK and Smyths Toys could restock the sold out console as early as today, according to stock trackers on social media.

The rumours come from Twitter account @PS5Instant, one of the web's most popular PlayStation stock trackers.

The PS5 was released six months ago to acclaim but for millions of gamers it has proven almost impossible to get of.

to parts shortages, coronavirus-related delays and then, incredibly, a giant container ship blocking the Suez Canal and holding up deliveries, supplies to the UK has been incredibly limited.

    BATTLEFIELD 2042 TO BE FILLED WITH BOTS ON PS5 AND XBOX SERIES X

    When Battlefield 2042 was announced, it was that players on Xbox Series X, PS5 and PC would be able to play in servers with up to 128 players at once.

    However, you might not always be playing against humans in those matches, with EA now explaining AI bots will also be taking place in the game. 

    In conversation with The Verge, EA explained that up to 64 ‘AI soldiers’ could be used to fill up empty lobbies depending on factors like your region, platform and the time of day.

    However, the company added that human players will always take priority, therefore it is thought that during busy times you won’t run into many AI.

      DIGITAL VS DISK: WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES?

      When Sony announced it was releasing its all-new gaming console, they forgot to mention they were releasing not one, but two PlayStation 5s. The differences between the two are in fact very minimal.

      The names offer the tell-tale sign of the difference because the only thing that distinguishes the “digital edition” from the “disc edition” (which sony is referring to as the PlayStation 5) is that it doesn’t have a disc drive and it’s less expensive.

      The PlayStation 5 costs £449.99, while the PlayStation 5 digital edition is cheaper at £359.99.

      Deciding which one to opt for really does come down to how often you think you’ll need and use the disc drive, if not at all, it might be worth considering the digital edition owing to the fact it’s £90 cheaper.

      PS5 SHORTAGE ‘TO LAST UNTIL 2022’

      The global PlayStation 5 shortage is likely to continue until next year, leaving frustrated gamers unable to get their hands on a new console for months to come, according to one expert.

      Sony’s machine has been largely out of stock since November and probably won’t be available any time soon due to a shortfall in supply of microchips.

      Speaking to TechRadar on Sunday, analyst Anshel Sag suggested that as a result of the chip crisis, PS5 shortages will drag on for months to come.

      “I honestly don’t see this shortage getting better until next year,” said Sag, a Senior Analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy.

      CYBERPUNK 2077 RETURNING

      Troubled game Cyberpunk 2077 is returning to PlayStation stores, Sony has confirmed, six months after it was pulled over bugs and compatibility issues.

      The dystopian-themed game was reportedly one of the most expensive ever made and its release was hotly anticipated, but the rollout was mired in problems.

      In December 2020, Sony said it was pulling the game from PlayStation stores around the world citing “customer satisfaction” after multiple complaints about glitches and even health risks.

      But a regulatory disclosure by the game’s maker, CD Projekt Red, on Tuesday said Sony Interactive Entertainment would “reinstate the availability of the digital edition of Cyberpunk 2077 on PlayStation store, effective on 21 June 2021.”

      Sony confirmed the game would be relisted this month. But it warned there could still be issues with the title if played on PlayStation 4 consoles.
