Seeking out a PS5 restock in the U.K. remains a major challenge. New PS5 stock drops are sporadic and when they arrive people flock to them and the consoles fly off the virtual shelves.
Some PS5 restocks have popped up this week, though they rapidly sold out. But Game is expected to get new stock next week and Currys now has a lottery system you can sign up to, after which you’ll be given a chance to buy a PS5 if the retailer selects you at random.
Make sure to keep an eye out on the retailer pages listed below, and regularly refresh them, to be in with a chance to get either a £449 PS5 or £359 PS5 Digital Edition this month.
We’ve collected a list of U.K. retailers to check for PS5 stock, as well as our handy widget that’ll surface any PS5 bundles. We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for stock updates as well, so make sure to keep checking back for updates.
Where to buy PS5 UK: Latest updates
Digging up a PS5 restock has been a challenging process. At the time of writing, the PS5 is sold out or unavailable at most U.K. retailers. March is expected to keep having healthy bouts of PS5 restocks as Spring sets in.
However, we don’t expect stock shortages to go away any time soon, but perhaps they could start easing up as we head towards the second quarter of 2021. However, if you do manage to get your hands on one, you’ll have got a gaming tech bargain.

Where buy PS5 in the UK: Tips and tricks
Get prepared: Make sure you have all the right payment card details and two-factor authentication available and to hand when you find a PS5 ready to buy. Units can go so fast that if you’re rushing around trying to find your credit card you could miss your chance to secure a PS5 order.
Select a retailer: As you can see from our list above, there are plenty of retailers to choose from, which can actually make the whole process of buying a PS5 a bit complicated. We suggest you select a couple of major retailers like Walmart and Amazon and keep an eye on their PS5 landing pages.
Sign up to stock alerts: Plenty of retailers offer to alert you to when they have PS5 stock in. We suggest you sign up to those services for the retailers that are offering them.
Find the right product page: It might sound obvious, but make sure you’re on the actual buying page for the PS5 or the PS5 Digital Edition. If you’re on a landing page, you might end up missing the moment new stock arrives.
Sign in to retailers: Make sure you sign in to any retailers you might already have an account with. This will make things a lot faster when buying a PS5 if you spot one on sale. And speed is of the essence today.
Keep refreshing and don’t give up: It can be a little demoralizing trying to find PS5 stock when everywhere looks sold out. But regularly refresh product pages to see what pops up; you might get lucky. And also keep checking back here for any PS5 stock updates.
If you still haven’t had any luck getting a console, you can always check our stock widget below. If any other retailers get PS5 stock in throughout the day it’ll show up there. So if you see something jump on that opportunity as soon as you can.
