Trailer for Play Like Never Before | PS5
The PS5 launched in November 2020, but supply problems and a global shortage of semiconductors have slowed the production of Sony’s next-generation console to a crawl. New stock is hard to find, and when it does appear the PS5 sells out fast.
August was one of the best months ever for PS5 restocks, seeing multiple drops at Very, Smyths Toys, BT and EE, as well as availability at Argos, Amazon and Game. There were around 35 drops in total. September has already been impressive though, with drops at AO.com, Ace Studio and ShopTo, while Currys PC World sent out its PS5 VIP pass codes all in the first week. Last week, we saw a drop at BT, Ace Studio joined the fray again on Tuesday and Smyths on Wednesday. This was followed by a restock at BT on Monday this week, and more drops are coming up today.
If you’re still on the lookout for a PS5, you’ve come to the right place. Our liveblog is on hand to give you the latest insight on Playstation 5 restocks from all major UK retailers, both online and in-store, as well as providing details on rumoured releases, the latest PS5 games and accessories to snap up.
Check stock from UK PS5 retailers below:
Now that you’ve got your hands on a PS5, you’re probably going to want to get some games to play on it. If you haven’t yet, Game PS5 stock is still available.
In the bestselling Spider-Man: Miles Morales (£44.99, Currys.co.uk), Peter Parker is replaced with his awkward teenage protégé, Miles Morales. A next-generation spin-off, Spider-Man: Miles Morales refines the original’s formula,” our reviewer said. “This is a streamlined adventure with a more focused story, far less busy work and an endearingly clumsy protagonist still getting to grips with his powers.”
Meanwhile, Demon’s Souls (£57.99, Currys.co.uk) on PS5 is a showcase of what the new console is capable of. “The oppressive gothic architecture, yawning arches and festering dungeons of this cult classic look spectacular on the new hardware, while remaining faultlessly faithful to the aesthetic and vibe of the original game,” our tester said.

Get yourself on a Game PS5 waiting list in-store
As the online Game restock trundles on, here’s a friendly reminder to head into your local store to get your name added onto the retailer’s pre-order waiting list. Some stores may already have the console available to buy out back, so it’s always worth going in to check (if you can’t be bothered waiting around in a digital queue).

Game PS5 stock is available now
SOUND THE ALARM! The PS5 is finally in stock at Game.
There are a massive 43 bundles to choose from this time round, so we expect stock to last for a very, very long time.
The cheapest disc edition bundle comes with a “Player1” T-shirt (£464.98, Game.co.uk). The most expensive disc bundle comes with a dual sense controller and a pulse 3D gaming headset (£599.97, Game.co.uk).

Where the heck is the Game PS5 drop?
Game told us it was going to drop the PS5 console this morning. It’s gone past 11 and the console still hasn’t arrived. The dictionary definition of “morning”, according to Merriam-Webster is “the time from sunrise to noon”.
What does noon mean, kids? Noon means 12pm! Don’t let us down Game, you’ve got 35 minutes left to drop the console, or we’re ripping up this dictionary we’re holding in our hands.

Need a Very promo code?
If you’re looking for a Very PS5 promo code, well, you’re going to be looking for a really long time. PS5 promo codes simply don’t exist. The PS5 sells out quick enough without the retailer adding a discount on top of it. That said, if you’re looking for general Very voucher codes, we’ve got some where you can save up to 30 per cent off on electricals (not the PS5!)

When was the last John Lewis PS5 restock?
The PS5 disc edition console has now sold out at Very, but the digital edition console is still in stock.
While we wait for Game to drop its consoles, let’s have a look at John Lewis & Partners. The retailer last had a PS5 drop at 7am on 3 August. As usual with the retailer, it didn’t last very long, but it did drop at 7am as it always does.
The retailer only appears to get a couple of thousand consoles or less each time new stock comes in, so we’re not expecting anything big the next time there’s a drop. John Lewis & Partners was rumoured to drop earlier this month, but it has reportedly been pushed back to the end of September or the start of October.

Need an Xbox series X?
In true Very fashion, the retailer has now restocked the Xbox series X as well! If you’re on the hunt for one of those, check out our Xbox series X restock liveblog for all the latest news and updates as they happen. We’ll let you know when both the PS5 and Xbox consoles at Very sell out.
We’re still waiting for Game to drop its haul of PS5s, and will update you the second it becomes available. Hang in there if you’re still in the Very waiting room though, lots of people are managing to check out now.

People are being let out of the Very PS5 waiting room
Finally! It’s open! People are slowly being let out of Very’s PS5 waiting room. There are a few different bundle options to choose from, including one with a copy of the Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut edition game. We’ll update you with prices as and when we have them. We’re still in the waiting room ourselves, but some people have begun checking out.
A staple at Very is the PS5 disc edition console with a dualsense controller and a pulse 3D wireless headset for £599.97 (Very.co.uk).

Best PS5 accessories
The PS5 consoles on Game’s PS5 bundles page come with a fair few different accessories, like the dualsense controller and the pulse 3D wireless headset. If you’re looking at them, thinking to yourself, are these bits and bobs worth the extra money? Well, they both appear in our round-up of the best PS5 accessories, so we’d say: yep!
The PlayStation 5 dualsense controller (£56.99, Amazon.co.uk) is an essential addition for two-player play. Our reviewer said: “Besides looking and feeling good, it also has some useful features such as haptic feedback, which is a form of far superior vibration, and a set of trigger buttons that are much more responsive and tactile than previous PlayStation controllers.”

Stuck in the Very PS5 waiting room?
If you’re still in the Very PS5 waiting room, keep waiting, and don’t refresh the page. Very takes into account your waiting room position when the doors open, so if you refresh the page, you’ll be pushed right back to the end of the line.
The retailer typically opens the waiting room doors within an hour of the queue going live, so we shouldn’t have long left to wait now.
We’ll let you know as soon as the queue opens up – it might happen at the exact same time as the Game drop.
