UPDATE TWO: The Amazon UK PS5 restocking is expected to take place on Wednesday, May 19, according to the latest news shared by the stock tracking accounts.
This should start around 8 a.m. BST and could last less than 30 minutes depending on the number of consoles available for purchase.
UPDATE: The decline in Amazon UK PS5 shares did not start today, which means the next possible date will be Tuesday, May 17 from 8 a.m. BST. It was also revealed that another PlayStation 5 restocking started at ShopTo, but the website reportedly crashed.
ORIGINAL: Two big PS5 stock drops are coming this week, the first is expected to come from Amazon UK and Very.
And from what has been shared so far, players can expect at least one more replenishment to arrive before the end of the month.
That doesn’t mean more won’t be announced in the next few weeks, with other big retailers linked with new next-gen console shipments.
This month has already seen replenishments of Argos, Game, and ShopTo, and things are going well for next week as well.
Several stock tracking accounts have confirmed that the coming week will see at least two more drops in PS5 stock.
The first is expected between May 17 and May 19 from Amazon UK and will include around 8,000 consoles to purchase.
UK retailer Very is also set to launch a PlayStation 5 restock around the same time, meaning gamers should stay tuned from May 17.
And for those who miss the next round of stock declines, there is good news.
At least one more restocking is expected from a major UK retailer before the end of the month.
We don’t know which retailer will be added to the list, but Smyths Toys has confirmed they have a PS5 restock slated for May.
It’s unclear how many consoles will be available for purchase on Amazon this week, but there have been rumors that this could be one of the internet giant’s biggest drops since the start of 2021.
The good news is that the next Amazon PS5 restock is expected to be the biggest yet for the UK.
The @ PS5StockAlertUK Twitter posted: “News: Amazon UK is expected to expect a delivery of around 10K PlayStation 5 later this week, hinting at a drop from May 17-19. This will be their biggest replenishment to date. , because Amazon UK typically replenishes around 6K-8K.
“This is the first time that we have received information from Amazon UK since their drop in March last. So that can mean they won’t restock this week, unless it’s a double restock within two weeks, which is unlikely. always keep an eye on you every morning as usual! “
It’s important to know that more PlayStation stocks are coming, but console hunters should also know the best ways to get stock from each platform.
Here are some examples of the best way to try and buy a PlayStation 5 console from major UK retailers:
AMAZON UNITED KINGDOM: Amazon UK works best under power, but still has a few issues to mention. 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 heading out. Amazon UK will be one of the next stores to release PS5 stock, which is expected to happen around May 18th.
GAME: GAME is a UK retailer that offers the most regular stock updates for PS5 consoles. However, console hunters have been warned to use the Guest command, as this option is less likely to crash when finalizing a purchase. GAME recently restocked the PS5 and is out of stock again.
ARGOS: The Argos website is notorious for its crashes and inability to make purchases when site traffic is high. Stock trackers suggest using the Argos mobile app and keeping an eye on local store listings. Argos is not expected to receive any more stock until later in May or early June.
The issues with the PS5 stock lagging behind demand are expected to last until summer 2021.
