Sony’s hugely popular PlayStation 5 console is about to go on sale at GAME and Argos.
From March 23 to March 26, PS5 consoles will be available at two of the biggest retail stores in the UK.
It all begins with a major PS5 restock at GAME, which will have around 20,000 units up for grabs in the coming days.
GAME stock drops typically take place between 9am and 11am in the morning on either Tuesday or Wednesday. Needless to say, Express Online will keep this story updated with the latest stock information, so keep checking back for exact dates and times.
The GAME stock drops were confirmed by various UK PS5 stock checker sites, alongside news on the quantity of units on sale.
“GAME have fresh bundles prepared and will be dropping this week, possibly tomorrow or Wednesday as they usually do on Tuesday or Wednesday from 9am!” reads one stock alert tweet.
“GAME confirmed they’re releasing stock this week 9-11am. 20k units – 58.2% Disc and 41.8% Digital this time around.”
The reports on the Argos restocks are a little harder to pin down. PS5 consoles have arrived at Argos stores across the country, so stock drops are imminent.
“First news for the week ahead. Argos has distributed its PS5 Disc Editions to most of its stores in the UK,” reads a stock alert tweet.
“There is no information about PS5 Digital Editions yet. There is currently no date for when they plan to release, but we should know soon.”
A separate PS5 stock checker account claims that the consoles will be available towards the end of the week, or possibly early next week.
“Argos aims to release end of this week, however good chance they’ll miss and release early next week.”
There’s also been some development at Currys, which has altered the way it distributes PlayStation 5 stock.
The UK retailer is operating a lottery-style system, where customers sign up for the chance to buy a PS5.
Customers have now been notified by email whether or not they’ve been successful in buying from Currys.
Some customers have received emails saying better luck next time, while others have been reserved a console as part of the VIP draw.
Finally, Amazon customers will have to wait just a little bit longer for the next big stock drop.
Amazon UK has been extremely spotty when it comes to PS5 stock drops, making them one of the harder retailers to predict.
Based on the latest reports, Amazon will restock the device next week, so from March 30 onwards.
