The PS5 console was released over six months ago, but if you’re a gamer you’ll know how difficult it was to get your hands on the latest device.
Replenishment issues have plagued Sony since the reveal, and despite stores reopening in the UK with the lockdowns lifted, the situation does not appear to be improving much.
It’s gotten so hard for people to get their hands on a PS5 that it spawned a whole Twitter community of stock trackers, as well as a community of 24,500 redditors all trying to grab the console before it crashed. sells again.
Over the past month, we’ve been keeping up with updates from all major retailers, with Game, Argos, and Amazon restocking coming and going in the blink of an eye.
But it’s not all bad news, last week Game made a huge replenishment, which lasted over an hour. We also saw smaller drops at Amazon and AO. Unfortunately, we didn’t see any drops at Very – which was a retailer that was rumored to have a restocking.

Will there be a replenishment of the PS5 on Amazon Prime day?
We don’t know when exactly Amazon Prime Day is happening this year, only that it takes place in June. Another thing we don’t know is if Amazon will have a PS5 to celebrate its annual sales event.
We think Amazon is unlikely to have a PS5 drop on the same day, given that servers have already struggled to cope with the PS5 launch. Bringing the two together is a recipe for disaster. What’s more likely is that Amazon will register a PS5 restock before Prime Day or even after. Either way, we’ll let you know.

Hello! It’s another new week, but will it be another new week where you finally get your hands on a PS5 console? Well, it would be hard to get past last week’s huge PS5 drops, which saw a big resupply at Thu, Amazon and AO, but we hope more PS5 consoles will arrive.
Unfortunately, the rumor of a Very the decline did not materialize, but will this be this week? It seems doubtful. At the moment, there are no upcoming rumors slated for this week, with the next drops expected at Smyths Toys and the BT shop in the first week of June.

Sony PlayStation PS5 replenishment update for Very
It’s 4 p.m. and Very still hasn’t dropped their supposed 4000 units on their website. Just a reminder that it’s been well over two months since the retailer last had a drop, so we’re starting to wonder if Very is just sitting on a mountain of PS5 consoles, waiting for an unknown (but seemingly optimal) moment. ) to take them out. .
Inventory tracking @ PS5Instant Twitter account predicted that consoles would drop between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. today, but that time has unfortunately come and gone. The last Very drop occurred on a Wednesday around 10 a.m. However, we will continue to keep our eyes open.
