PS5 Stock news: Earliest Amazon UK and Very PlayStation 5 restock dates revealed

PS5 Stock news: Earliest Amazon UK and Very PlayStation 5 restock dates revealed

News regarding the new PS5 stock drops being planned for July has been shared this week by tracker accounts.

And from what has been shared so far, it looks like Amazon UK could be the next retailer to offer thousands of more consoles to buy.

As always, these reports must be taken with a big pinch of salt until we learn more from official sources.

With Amazon UK expected to offer a big restock this week, it could also be joined by some others.

Part of the list currently being circulated is ASDA and John Lewis, as well as Smyths Toys and Very.

There are only a series of dates right now for when these PlayStation drops might happen, but this could be whittled down and become much clearer as we get closer to the retail events.

And based on what has been shared so far, the next PS5 stock drop could happen as early as Tuesday, July 13.

This could be joined by John Lewis on July 13, with both PlayStation 5 stock drops between 8am and 11am BST.

As noted above, this is a predicted release date, meaning that it could also drop between July 13 and July 21.

Meanwhile, ASDA and Very PS5 restock could begin on July 14, with the final possible date being July 21.

These are the predicted dates shared by the PS5 Instant Twitter account regarding what could happen next:

  • Amazon UK – July 13-21 (8-10am)
  • ASDA 14-21 (8-11am)
  • John Lewis 13-22nd 7-9am
  • Smyths Toys – July 14-17th
  • Very 14-22nd (9-11am)

One thing to note is that these dates are being shared in regards to future PS5 stock drops online.

And there’s a chance that other leading retailers will offer new in-store bundles before the end of the week.

It follows a surprise PlayStation 5 stock drop this weekend, which started at ShopTo and Scan.

The PlayStation 5 has also been in stock at Argos. The consoles were available on a regional basis, both on browsers and via the Argos app.

Because of the nature of the drop, and the fact that it’s a collection only, customers are encouraged to contact their local store to see if any additional consoles are available.

Knowing when a PS5 restock is happening can be vital but it’s also worth knowing how each retailer handles its shipments.

And here are a few examples of how best to try and buy a PlayStation 5 console from leading UK retailers:

AMAZON UK: Amazon UK runs better under strain but still comes with a few kinks worth mentioning. Having an account set up with your card details is a good start, and gamers should also try adding a console to their wishlist before checking out. More stock is expected during July.

ARGOS: The Argos website is notorious for crashing and being unable to complete purchases when site traffic is high. Stock trackers suggest using the mobile Argos app and keeping an eye on local store listings.

GAME: GAME is a UK retailer that offers the most regular stock updates for PS5 consoles. However, console hunters have been warned to use Guest Checkout, as this option is less likely to crash when completing a purchase. The next PS5 stock update is expected to start in early July.

More PS5 restocks are coming to the UK, and there are reports that another could arrive later this week.

The latest predictions and reports have been shared regarding when the next PS5 Stock drops will happen in the UK, following earlier ones from Scan and Amazon.

It’s unclear which retailer will be the first to offer PlayStation 5 stock during July, but there are reports that Argos could be one of them.

Fresh stock could be released early in the morning between now and Friday, July 2, between the hours of 1am BST, and 4am BST.

However, unlike predictions from earlier in 2021, things have become harder to gauge. The PS5 Stock Alert UK Twitter account shared this news today, telling gamers:

“To answer you all, the situation with Argos is quite unstable. The in-store sales on Sunday decreased the nationwide stock count, keeping in mind Tuesday at 1:20am is Argos’ usual drop time. However, the bundle drop 2 weeks ago was Friday at 8am.

“This leaves everyone (including us) questioning ourselves whether or not it’ll drop after midnight another day, or is Friday 8am the new Argos drop pattern. Rest assured, you will be informed of the slightest concrete details we receive via the lovely people we work with.

“What’s happening is, they do have stock; however, the internal system has a block in place for allowing purchases to be made so that staff can’t allow purchases to customers or themselves through the internal system until whenever they decide the drop should be.”

This means that, unlike previous weeks, it’s hard to predict when the next PS5 stock drop will be here.

And here are a few examples of how best to try and buy a PlayStation 5 console from leading UK retailers:

AMAZON UK: Amazon UK runs better under strain but still comes with a few kinks worth mentioning. Having an account set up with your card details is a good start, and gamers should also try adding a console to their wishlist before checking out. More stock is expected during July.

ARGOS: The Argos website is notorious for crashing and being unable to complete purchases when site traffic is high. Stock trackers suggest using the mobile Argos app and keeping an eye on local store listings. Argos is not expected to receive any more stock until the end of June.

PS5 Stock: Earliest Amazon UK and GAME PlayStation 5 restock dates revealed

PS5 Stock: Earliest Amazon UK and GAME PlayStation 5 restock dates revealed

The latest predictions and reports have been shared regarding when the next PS5 Stock drops will happen in the UK.

And based on the latest news, gamers won’t be waiting long to try again at buying a next-gen console.

From what has been shared so far, Amazon UK, GAME and ASDA will be the next retailers to offer restocks this week.

We only have a series of dates right now, but this could be whittled down and become much clearer as we get closer to the right date.

And for those wondering, June 21 is the earliest date we could see PS5 stock appear online again.

The Amazon UK PS5 restock is expected to happen between June 21 and June 24, but it’s unclear how Amazon Prime Day might affect things.

Meanwhile, the ASDA PS5 stock update is expected to happen between June 21 and June 24, alongside UK retailer GAME.

While most of these restocks will be happening online, this week’s GAME event will reportedly be available in-store.

A message from PS5 Instant on Twitter reads: “AME to allow in-store #PS5 purchases tomorrow (Monday 21st June) nationwide with collection available to pick up Friday 25th June.

“We recommend popping into your local store early in the morning as there could be long queues. Please treat all staff with respect.”

Here is what we know so far about each stock drop and what we expect to happen this week:

GAME

GAME will reportedly be making it possible to pre-order next-gen consoles on June 21, and all purchases will need to be done in person.

This means that an online PS5 stock update is not expected to happen over the coming days at the same time.

It’s unclear how much PlayStation stock will be available or how long it will be available to buy.

Queues are expected in the morning, and all customers will need to adhere to all store policies.

AMAZON UK

Amazon UK has been linked to a PS5 restock between June 21 and June 24 and could include thousands of consoles to buy.

Having had other units delayed several times last week, gamers will need to keep an eye on the latest social media chatter to keep an eye on what’s happening next.

If something does happen, Gamers are being warned that the new PlayStation 5 consoles will be sold during the morning, between 8am, and 10am BST.

The Amazon UK site usually runs better under strain but still comes with a few kinks worth mentioning.

Having an account set up with your card details is a good start, and gamers should also try adding a console to their wishlist before checking out.

The Amazon UK stock drop expected for this week will reportedly include Ratchet and Clank bundles, meaning they will cost more and include the new PS5 game.

Other retailers that have been linked to PS5 stock drops before the end of June include the following:

  • Amazon UK – June 21-24 (8-10am)
  • ASDA – June 21-24 (8-11am)
  • Scan – June 24
  • Smyths Toys – June 24-26
  • Very: June 21-23
  • Tesco PS5 Stock drop before the end of the month.

June got off to a solid start, and it looks like more PS5 stock drops are being planned for the coming days.

The good news is that we have a new selection of predictions for PlayStation restock dates from Amazon, GAME and Very.

And while nothing is expected to happen today, it shouldn’t be long before gamers get their first chance to buy a next-gen console.

From what has been shared so far, the next PS5 stock drop is expected on Tuesday, June 8.

This remains a prediction for now, but there’s plenty of solid information suggesting something is being planned.

There is a slim chance that GAME will be restocking the PlayStation 5 today; however, it is more likely that this will happen between June 8 and June 10.

So technically, the PS5 restock date for this week will be June 7, but not much is expected to happen for another 24-hours.

GAME is just one of several UK retailers that have been linked to restock this week, with Smyths Toys and Very also part of the list.

Meanwhile, ASDA, AO, ShopTo and John Lewis are also expected to offer something over the coming days.

GAME seems like the surest bet on shipping stock this week, having been linked to several dates in June.

A message from the PS5 Stock Alert UK account – a reliable source for information – provided these list of potential dates, telling gamers on Twitter: “Last week was disappointing with stock, but here is what we can expect this week:

  • AO: 8th-10th
  • ASDA: 8th-10th
  • GAME: 8th-9th
  • John Lewis: 8th
  • Scan: 11th
  • ShopTo: 8th-10th
  • Smyths Toys: 10th-12th
  • Studio: 8th-10th
  • Very: 8th-10th.

They also warned: “Please keep in mind these dates are not a guarantee, but only predictions based on previous restock patterns.

“The most likely to drop on that list is GAME, AO, and Smyths Toys (who haven’t restocked in 30 days now). The rest are slightly possible.”

Other retailers, like Currys, Amazon and Argos, have also been linked to restocks during June but are not expected to release the consoles until later this month.

The official Smyths website confirms that PlayStation 5 disc consoles will be available again in June, although no further information has been shared on what date this new restock will start.

Other big retailers are also dropping stock during June but won’t be doing it this week. Amazon UK is expected to offer another shipment of consoles before the end of the month.

Argos has become a major supplier of next-gen consoles in 2021 and will be offering its next big drop in the coming weeks.

From what has been shared so far, the next Argos PS5 stock drop will happen around June 22.

Here are a few examples of how best to try and buy a PlayStation 5 console from leading UK retailers:

AMAZON UK: Amazon UK runs better under strain but still comes with a few kinks worth mentioning. Having an account set up with your card details is a good start, and gamers should also try adding a console to their wishlist before checking out. More stock is expected before June 10.

ARGOS: The Argos website is notorious for crashing and being unable to complete purchases when site traffic is high. Stock trackers suggest using the mobile Argos app and keeping an eye on local store listings. Argos is not expected to receive any more stock until later in June.

GAME: GAME is a UK retailer that offers the most regular stock updates for PS5 consoles. However, console hunters have been warned to use Guest Checkout, as this option is less likely to crash when completing a purchase. GAME is expected to restock the PlayStation 5 in the next seven days.

PS5 Stock UK: Earliest Amazon, Argos, Smyths, GAME PlayStation 5 restock dates

PS5 Stock UK: Earliest Amazon, Argos, Smyths, GAME PlayStation 5 restock dates
June is set to be another good month for gamers looking to pick up PS5 stock, with a number of leading UK retailers linked to big PlayStation 5 shipments.

The latest reports have revealed that there will be PS5 restocks at Amazon, Argos, Smyths, GAME and John Lewis.

Other smaller retailers have also been put down on the June restock list, including ShopTo, Scan, Studio and Very.

And the good news is that this week should see at least one big PS5 stock shipment for console hunters to try their luck with.

May saw several big shipments from GAME and Amazon UK, although no UK retailers could keep up with demand.

Based on the latest reports, an Amazon UK PS5 restock is scheduled for between June 1 and June 4.

That’s still quite a wide net for gamers, but it does provide a good idea for what will be happening this week.

And Amazon isn’t expected to be alone, with AO, John Lewis, and Smyths Toys also expected to release PlayStation 5 stock this week.

We don’t have an exact date or time to confirm yet, but there are plenty of reliable stock trackers providing the latest updates.

The PS5 Stock Alert Twitter account provided these latest dates, telling gamers this week: “These dates are calculated based on previous restock patterns alongside some insider information, so, dates could change as we get closer to the restocks.

“Once we know a change has taken place, we will tweet it out. In conclusion, these dates are not a guarantee.”

With that disclaimer in mind, there still should be at least one PS5 restock this week, dropping before June 5.

Smyths Toys is known for releasing PlayStation stock on Fridays, meaning that June 4 is a good shout.

The official Smyths website confirms that PlayStation 5 disc consoles will be available again in June, although no further information has been shared on what date this new restock will start.

Other big retailers are also dropping stock during June but won’t be doing it this week.

Argos has become a major supplier of next-gen consoles in 2021 and will be offering its next big drop in the coming weeks.

From what has been shared so far, the next Argos PS5 stock drop will happen around June 22.

Meanwhile, GAME UK is another major retailer reportedly dropping thousands of more consoles next month, predicted to arrive on its website on June 10.

As ever, none of this information comes from official sources and means that everything needs to be taken with a pinch of salt.

Finding out that more PlayStation stock is coming is important, but console hunters should also know the best ways to get stock from each platform.

Here are a few examples of how best to try and buy a PlayStation 5 console from leading UK retailers:

AMAZON UK: Amazon UK runs better under strain but still comes with a few kinks worth mentioning. Having an account set up with your card details is a good start, and gamers should also try adding a console to their wishlist before checking out.

GAME: GAME is a UK retailer that offers the most regular stock updates for PS5 consoles. However, console hunters have been warned to use Guest Checkout, as this option is less likely to crash when completing a purchase. GAME recently restocked the PS5 and is now out of stock again.

ARGOS: The Argos website is notorious for crashing and being unable to complete purchases when site traffic is high. Stock trackers suggest using the mobile Argos app and keeping an eye on local store listings. Argos is not expected to receive any more stock until later in June.

CURRYS: Currys have not been sharing a lot of stock during May but has been supplying consoles via a new system. This includes signing up for the Currys VIP Pass, which means heading over to the website and using an email address. If you do this, you have a chance of buying a PS5 console from a store, within a 72-hour window.

PS5 stock UK: Earliest Very, Argos and Smyths PlayStation 5 restock dates

PS5 stock UK: Earliest Very, Argos and Smyths PlayStation 5 restock dates
The latest reports suggest that more PS5 stock drops are being planned for the coming weeks, across May and June.

The current month has already seen several big shipments from GAME and Amazon UK, although no UK retailers can keep up with demand.

And the good news is that there should be at least one more PS5 stock drop during May 2021.

The downside is that this latest PlayStation 5 shipment release does not have a guaranteed date or time.

From what has been shared so far, UK retailer Very will be the next store to offer PS5 stock to buy.

The PS5 Instant Twitter account – a reliable tracker source – has shared new information that suggests Very will be dropping sometime over the next seven days.

This remains unconfirmed and means that there could be last-minute changes or delays to whatever the full schedule is. Without any mention of an early release, PS5 stock could reappear between May 25 and May 31.

Very was expected to offer stock before now but reportedly has had internal issues that have led to delays.

The PS5 Instant page adds: “Very PS5 restock release still before the end of the month, delay due to processing of stock.”

Other UK retailers have linked to possible stock drops, however, these aren’t expected to arrive until June 2021.

These include BT, Argos and Smyths, all of which are expected to offer restocks next month.

The official Smyths website confirms that PlayStation 5 disc consoles will be available again to buy sometime in June. No further information has been shared on what date this new restock will start.

Meanwhile, PS5 Stock Alert UK believes that BT is prepping for a PS5 stock drop during June, telling its followers this week:

“BT/EE’s internal system shows a potential restock of a few thousand PlayStation 5 consoles on the first week of June.

“This could be pushed back or be earlier, so, we highly advise you to sign up to their email interest registry.”

But there’s also bad news for gamers, with Argos not expected to offer more stock until June.

However, there is a discrepancy when Argos will be getting new PS5 consoles to sell, with some stock trackers reporting June 9, with others reporting June 28.

Finding out that more PlayStation stock is coming is important, but console hunters should also know the best ways to get stock from each platform.

Here are a few examples of how best to try and buy a PlayStation 5 console from leading UK retailers:

The earliest known human burial in Africa was a carefully laid down child

Africa is widely regarded as the place where modern Homo sapiens emerged. But scientists still know relatively little about the funerary practices of early humans who lived there. Now, researchers have documented one more burial site—and it’s the oldest to date on the continent.

Archaeologists uncovered the 78,000-year-old funerary site at Panga ya Saidi, a cave near the Kenyan coast. There, researchers found the remains of a boy, about three years of age, who was gently laid to rest. They named him Mtoto, the Swahili word for child. Based on analysis of the remains, scientists concluded that Mtoto was likely set down curled up on his side. He was then probably wrapped in some sort of shroud and given a pillow (both of which later decayed), before being covered with soil. The findings were published in Nature

Mtoto was actually first discovered in 2013, but the remains were so fragile that the bones disintegrated upon excavation. Archaeologists had to get creative in order to get samples to the lab. First they dug around the area and encased the grave in plaster. Then they lifted it all to the National Museum in Nairobi before taking samples to a specialist lab in Spain. They found bones and teeth, as well as some stone tools. 

The care that Mtoto evidently received indicates to archaeologists that this was some sort of cultural, meaningful burial—as opposed to a simple disposal of the dead you might see in earlier human relatives or animals. It’s a demonstration of intentional, symbolic, and complex social behavior, the study authors argue.

“Humans, unlike chimps, began to develop complex belief systems around death,” said archaeological scientist and study co-author Nicole Boivin to The Guardian. But funerary practices can vary so widely, she said, that we can’t necessarily know what exactly this burial signified to people at the time. 

[Related: Laos’s Plain of Jars revealed to be a burial site]

This discovery adds to the very small cohort of known early African burials. Before Mtoto’s discovery, the two earliest African burials discovered were in Egypt and South Africa and are approximately 68,000 and 74,000 years old, respectively. In contrast, archaeologists have documented plenty of human and Neanderthal burials in Europe, some dated as old as 120,000 years. 

The lack of discovered burial sites could be explained by differing cultural practices in humans back then, but could also be due to a scarcity of this kind of field work on the continent. The disparity “almost certainly reflects biases in where research has been done,” Boivin said. “The regions where earlier burials have been found have been much more extensively researched than Africa … despite the fact that Africa is the birthplace of our species.”

Alcoholic fatty liver disease: The five earliest warning signs of organ damage

Alcoholic fatty liver disease: The five earliest warning signs of organ damage
Dr Sarah Jarvis acknowledges the liver’s “amazing” capacity to regenerate itself. However, each time it filters alcohol, “liver cells die”, which can become a problem “if you keep drinking”. When the liver is unable to keep up with how much a person drinks on a regular basis, permanent liver damage occurs. Alcohol is believed to damage the liver in two ways, through oxidative stress and toxins.
Drinkaware explained further: “When our liver tries to break down alcohol, the resulting chemical reaction can damage its cells.

“This damage can lead to inflammation and scarring as the liver tries to repair itself” – known as oxidative stress.

As for toxins, alcohol can damage the intestines, enabling toxins from gut bacteria to move into the liver; this too causes inflammation and scarring.

Drinkaware warned: “People can spend 20 years damaging their liver and not feel any of the effects this is doing to them.”

Yet, when symptoms of alcoholic fatty liver disease do emerge, there are five warning signs to be aware of, which are:

  • Abdominal pains
  • Diarrhoea
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

Dr Jarvis commented: “Now, if you stop drinking, you can help reduce damage to your liver.”

If you don’t, signs that the disease has progresses include the following:

  • Easy bruising
  • Bleeding in the gut
  • Jaundice (yellow skin)
  • Increased sensitivity to alcohol
  • Itching
  • Liver cancer
  • Swelling of the legs, ankles, or abdomen
  • Vomiting blood
  • Weakness
  • Loss of appetite

“If you drink too much alcohol, particularly over a long period, it’s a major cause of cirrhosis of the liver,” added Dr Jarvis.

Cirrhosis of the liver – when scar tissue builds up – is not reversible, and it can stop the organ from working effectively.

Anyone at this stage of the disease are highly recommended to become teetotal, which is complete abstinence from alcohol.

What if I have no symptoms?

“Evidence about how much and how often you need to drink to increase your chances of developing liver disease is unclear,” said Drinkaware.

“But all the research shows that the more alcohol you drink, the more likely you are to develop liver disease.”

Current evidence suggests that other factors can increase a person’s likelihood of developing fatty liver disease.

For example, around seven in 10 people with alcoholic fatty liver disease have an alcohol dependency problem.

In addition, being overweight can “exacerbate many of the mechanisms of liver damage caused by excessive drinking”.

Am I at risk of a fatty liver?

Alcohol interferes with the way liver handles fat, so drinking more than four pints daily for two weeks straight will lead to a fatty liver.

Drinkaware stated that this will be the case for women if more than two 175ml glasses of wine is consumed daily for a fortnight.

When a fatty liver emerges, you might feel a vague discomfort in the abdomen as the liver swells.

However, if you stop drinking for two weeks, the liver should start shedding the excess fat.

“But if you don’t change your drinking pattern, that fatty liver is the first stage of developing liver disease,” said Drinkaware.

Alcoholic fatty liver disease symptoms: A doctor warns of two of earliest warning signs

Alcoholic fatty liver disease symptoms: A doctor warns of two of earliest warning signs
When the liver breaks down alcohol, it generates additional toxins within the body. Over time, excessive consumption of alcohol can result in liver cell injury and inflammation, leading to signs of fatty liver disease. Dr Scot Thomas confirmed: “For many people, fatty liver disease could point to signs of alcohol abuse or addiction.” The medical expert also highlighted those at most risk – “heavy drinkers who are obese, women, or [those who] have certain genetic mutations”.
This condition can be exacerbated by malnutrition, a poor diet, limited exercise, high blood pressure and obesity.

Why is alcoholic fatty disease dangerous?

The NHS warn of “portal hypertension” as a potential health complication of alcoholic fatty liver disease.

“It occurs when the blood pressure inside your liver has risen to a potentially serious level,” said the national health body.

A scarred liver makes it difficult for blood to travel through the organ, forcing blood to use smaller blood vessels instead.

As a result, these small blood vessels can weaken, split and bleed inside the body.

In addition, another danger of alcoholic fatty liver disease is the development of hepatic encephalopathy.

This is when the liver is unable to remove toxins from the body, which can lead to:

  • Agitation
  • Confusion
  • Disorientation
  • Muscle stiffness
  • Muscle tremors
  • Difficulty speaking
  • In very serious cases, a coma

Furthermore, a build-up of fluid can develop in the tummy area, known as ascites.

A risk of infection in the fluid is linked to kidney failure and even death.

Fortunately, those who stop drinking completely can reverse the condition with the help of healthy lifestyle changes.

This includes eating a healthy diet full of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

Moreover, it requires regular exercise which can help reduce fat in the liver and help you to lose weight.

If you need support to cut down or to stop drinking, please call Drinkline’s confidential helpline on 0300 123 1110.
