PS5 stock update – when and where to buy PlayStation 5 this week
Gamers will be eager to snag a PlayStation 5 when it is finally released this week.
The new console will be flying off the shelves from Thursday, November 19 – with demand already though the roof.
Two new models are being released – the main PlayStation 5 (£449.99) and a digital PS5 edition (£349.99).
All pre-orders for the latest models are sold out and suppliers are now looking to bring in more stock.
The new models are already available in the US – although getting a hold of the goods is proving difficult across the pond.
And it is no easier in the UK with most sites sold out.
But at least two retailers will be offering another chance at buying PS5 console during November 2020.
GAME is currently one of the only retailers that is still taking pre-orders.
Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean you will be able to get your hands on the console this week.
Instead a ‘new’ release date of December 10 is listed, so this may be something worthy of consideration if you’re looking to get hold of one in time for Christmas.
The line on Curry’s PC World’s PS5 landing page is: “We are working tirelessly to secure more stock. Please continue to check this page for more updates.”
John Lewis’ website says that gamers will be able to purchase the new model on November 19, but only online.
It says: “the PS5 console will be made available to order online only on launch day, Thursday, 19th November 2020.
“PlayStation 5 consoles will not be available for in-store purchase at any of our John Lewis & Partner stores.”
When checking Argos, it simply says the new model is unavailable – shoppers can register their interest for when stock is back.
Demand is likely to remain high past the holiday season and into early 2021, according to analysts.
Amazon is set to have a restock at 12pm on November 19, and like elsewhere is currently sold out.
Smyths, Very, and AO are all showing as out of stock with no date for restock reported.
And Currys PC world is set to have new stock on November 19.
A statement on the website reads: “We are working tirelessly to secure more stock. Please continue to check this page for more updates”
