PS5 Launch – The Game Has No Limits
Update: Smyths Toys PS5 is selling, the game may drop today. Read on for more information.
The PS5 console may have been released over six months ago, but if you’re a gamer, you’ll know how difficult it was to get your hands on the device.
Replenishment issues have plagued Sony since the initial reveal, and despite stores reopening in April in the UK as lockdowns lift, it’s still nearly impossible to secure a console in-store (and still not easy online. ).
In fact, 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 Redditors of 24,500 people all trying to grab it. console before it sells again.
But, this is not all bad news; the resupply landscape has started to improve in recent weeks. Last month we took advantage of some of the biggest PS5 drops to date as all major retailers released consoles, including a 20,000-person drop from Game. June is shaping up to be similar, and while yesterday was a bit slower, with rumors of downside Argos and Asda not materializing, today is believed to be more promising.
We’re here to help you get your hands on the coveted Playstation by keeping an eye out for all major retailers, as well as giving you the latest details on release rumors. Follow live so you don’t miss a thing.

Smyths Toys PS5 pack reportedly sold out
We don’t know if Smyths Toys even had a drop from the Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart bundle – we literally couldn’t see it in stock despite the slow refresh, but stock trackers are reporting that it’s now officially out of stock. However, some of you probably gave up long before the official stock-out alert.
In other news, Amazon apparently didn’t go down today, and that makes us reconsider our thoughts on a possible Amazon Prime Day restocking on PS5. It’s increasingly likely that the retailer could ditch the console during their shopping extravaganza.

Did the Smyths Toys PS5 pack restock just happen?
Smyths Toys would have had a replenishment of the Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart package. It costs £ 509.99 (Smythstoys.com). Unfortunately, this is not displayed to us. PS5 stock trackers recommend people cool off slowly because you might be able to catch it in stock. He may already be exhausted. We’ll keep you posted if the console releases more widely.
We might also see Game drop in the next few hours, so if you can’t add the Rift apart package in your cart, don’t worry.

What are the restockings of the Sony PlayStation 5 console coming today?
Hello PS5 researchers! It was another disappointing night for those who stay awake for the fall of Argos, with the PS5 yet to materialize on the retailer’s virtual shelves. This is the last chance saloon, Argos, you have one night to come!

A recap of today’s PS5 replenishment events: Argos PS5 replenishment tonight?
It’s been a bit quiet on the replenishment front here today, with no replenishment from Amazon or Asda. Hopefully we’ll see a drop from Amazon tomorrow, seeing as it’s Prime Day next week. The retailer is unlikely to have a replenishment during the purchase event.
Argos, however, is expected to have a drop tonight between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m. – we hope for our sake it’s 1 a.m. and not 3 a.m. You can buy both the disc edition (£ 449.99, Argos.fr) and the digital edition (£ 359.99, Argos.fr).
Good luck, and hope that the restocking will be done this evening! Otherwise, we’ll see you here tomorrow morning.

Sony PlayStation’s VR 2 is slated for release in 2022
While you might not have been able to get a PS5 yet, you will also have to wait a bit longer for another Sony gadget. According to a report of Bloomberg, the successor to PlayStation VR will be released in time for Christmas next year.
It’s still a while away, but hopefully by then the chip shortage has been resolved and you will have a PS5 safe inside your home. Sony has already confirmed that the PS VR 2 will have a higher resolution and a wider field of view. We can’t wait to see it in the flesh.

The game is rumored to drop the PS5 and a selection of PS5 packs tomorrow morning between 9:40 and 10 a.m. according to the @ PS5Instant Twitter account. We can’t confirm this ourselves, so don’t take it as gospel, but the retailer usually falls between 9 and 11 a.m. – so you should keep an eye on the page at this time anyway.

When was the last restocking for the AO PS5 console?
AO had one last drop on Friday, so the retailer is unlikely to have another drop this week. That doesn’t mean you can’t prepare yourself, however.
There is a little trick to get the PS5 from AO.fr when the PS5 is live, discovered during the previous drops by the Twitter account @ PS5StockAlertUK. It takes a bit of effort, but many people have successfully used it when the console is live but displays “out of stock”. Note: This will only work when the PS5 product page is live on AO and you will need to use Google Chrome.
- When the PS5 product page is online, copy the product ID from the PS5 and save it in a safe place.
- Navigate to a random item on the AO website.
- Right click the “Buy Now” button on the random item and click “Inspect Item”. In the Item Inspector, change the Product ID to the Product ID of the PS5.
- Click on “Buy Now”.
You can test this with any item on the AO website if you want a little practice before the next drop. There is no estimated delivery date for the next restock yet, but we’ll keep you posted if we hear more.
