AFTER a longer than expected wait, at least one major PS5 restock is happening in the UK, and it looks like things will be kicking off at Argos, Amazon or GAME on Thursday, June 17.
UPDATE THREE: A new update suggests that the Argos PS5 restock has begun, with Ratchet and Clank bundles available through the Argos App and The Argos Website. It has also been reported that this is a regional drop and is pick-up only.
UPDATE TWO: Gamers reported that the final PS5 restock of this week had gone live at Argos earlier tonight, however, since 3:30am BST, there have been issues checking out any of the PlayStation bundles.
While console hunters were warned that they would only be able to find PS5 stock using the Argos App, even that has apparently has not worked. The latest information is that today’s PS5 restock has been a glitch and that the Ratchet and Clank bundles will not be going live until a later date.
For now, it appears all PlayStation 5 deals that make it to the checkout are cancelled and it’s unclear if gamers will have to wait until next week to have another go.
UPDATE: This week’s Argos PS5 stock is expected to begin between 1am and 5am BST, on Friday, June 18, 2021. Gamers have been warned to use the Argos Mobile App rather than the website, to be prepared to purchase the special Ratchet and Clank bundle.
PlayStation 5 consoles are expected to go on sale via the official GAME site between 9am BST and 11am BST. It should be noted that most PS5 stock has been allocated to bundles rather than solo deals. More news on this week’s PS5 stock drops can be found below.
ORIGINAL: Thursday could prove to be a busy day for PlayStation 5 stock trackers looking to lock down a next-gen console. Three major UK retailers have been linked to a new PS5 restock this week, but fans have been left waiting for several days for an update.
