UPDATE: PS5 consoles are now out of stock at GAME, following a second re-stock in 24-hours.
While many fans have been left disappointed by the big queues and lack of stock, the UK does seem to be getting stock more frequently, which is a good sign.
Interestingly, ShopTo servers are also struggling, which may mean PS5 consoles are back in stock. It’s unconfirmed, but worth checking out.
As a reminder, more retailers are expected to get stock within the next 24-hours, so keep checking back for all the latest PS5 re-stock news.
The links below will take you to various PS5 landing pages, which is where you should find stock.
ORIGINAL: PS5 consoles are slowly coming back in stock throughout the UK.
After Smyths received PS5 stock last week, more and more UK retailers are beginning to replenish their supplies.
Currys and GAME have both started selling PS5 consoles on January 20, although queues for the websites have made it difficult for customers to get hold of consoles.
According to various PS5 Stock accounts on Twitter, even more stock will be released throughout the next 24-hours.
“Don’t worry, there will be more PS5 stock from other retailers – stay tuned,” reads a Digital Foundry Deals tweet.
“PS5s at Currys have just sold out. So if you didn’t manage to get one there’s more drops coming so don’t worry,” PS5 UK Stock – Instant Updates tweets.
IGN also claims that more PS5 consoles are on the way, telling fans to try the likes of Argos, Currys, Very and Amazon.
Likewise, it’s also worth visiting John Lewis, AO, ShopTo and the aforementioned GAME, which is likely to receive the most stock.
Some retailers allow customers to register their interest in the PS5, which should result in alerts when the consoles become available.
Express Online will also provide regular stock updates in this very article, so keep checking back if you want to bag a new console.
Anybody lucky enough to get hold of a PlayStation 5 console in the next UK re-stock is in for a treat.
The new PlayStation device has some fantastic features to go with its killer launch line-up.
Most notable of all is the DualSense controller, which makes use of advanced haptic feedback to mirror the action on screen.
In games like Astro’s Playroom, for example, you’ll feel it when your character walks on ice, or is blown backwards by a strong gust of wind.
Adaptive triggers are also used to better mimic the sensation of firing a gun, or pulling back on the strings of a bow.
The adaptive triggers are best demonstrated in games like Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, Fortnite and Borderlands 3, where different weapons provide different levels of resistance.
It will be interesting to see how games like Horizon Zero Dawn 2 use the adaptive triggers and haptic feedback, especially considering the emphasis of hunting hulking beasts with high-tech bows.
Speaking of the DualSense controller, Bethesda recently revealed how the pad would be used in upcoming action game Deathloop.
“Your trigger button locks up mid-firefight. Damn, another gun jam. It really might be time to find a new weapon,” reads a PlayStation blog post.
“You feel the scrape of your boots against stone as you clamber up a wall. The control rumbles in your hands with each movement.
“You hear a quiet beeping emanating from the controller’s speaker; there’s a mine nearby, so you better watch your step.
“These are just a few examples of how Deathloop is taking advantage of the PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller to enhance the immersive experience. Deathloop arrives on consoles exclusively for PS5 on May 21, 2021.”
