Smyths Toys is a retailer that gives gamers hope for a secure purchase.
The retailer’s website confirms stock is expected in May 2021 – but does not give a specific date.
This is true for both the greasy PS5 with a disc tray, as well as the discless PS5 Digital Edition.
It’s unclear when the new stock will arrive, so it’s worth checking the Smyths Toys website regularly for updates.
We are already a few days away in May, so the stock could arrive shortly.
The widely respected PS5 Stock UK account on Twitter has claimed that John Lewis will be offering fresh stocks soon.
According to prognosticators, John Lewis will sell the console between May 11 and May 13.
However, note that this has not been confirmed by John Lewis, so take all rumors and leaks with caution.
There are rumors that Argos could start offering PS5 shares as early as this week.
Other retailers like Currys and Game have confirmed they are working to secure more stock – but details on the exact timing are not public.
The PS5 has been largely sold out since its launch in November 2020.
PlayStation boss Jim Ryan recently admitted that it would be much easier to get a PS5 starting in July.
The full PS5 costs £ 449 / $ 499, while a digital edition without a disc tray is priced at £ 359 / $ 399.
They take on the Xbox Series X (£ 449) and Xbox Series S (£ 249), which arrived worldwide on November 10.
All four consoles have been sold out worldwide, with stock running low and out of stock in recent weeks.
The PS5 launched with great exclusive games like Spider-Man Miles Morales and a revamped version of Dark Souls for gamers to enjoy.
Xbox gamers, meanwhile, have a new Halo title to look forward to later this year.
