PS5 UK stock LIVE – Smyths, GAME Argos, John Lewis and Very due for restocks


PS5 CONSOLES could be coming to Smyth Toys ‘in the next 24-48 hours’ in the latest wave of Playstation5 restocks at major retailers.

Stock tracker @PS5UKstock has made a claim that due to a significant change on it’s website, Smyths could drop stock as early as TONIGHT.

The tracker tweeted: “Remember when we said Smyths will drop when they remove the purple banner? Well, they’ve removed it! Stay alert in the next 24 – 48 hours for a potential drop!”

It comes as yesterday saw stock Amazon and EE drop – but it went quickly as it came.

Meanwhile Very, John Lewis, Asda, ShopTo and eBuyer are all rumoured to have PS5 drops lined up over the next week.

And GAME looks likely to follow suit from April 6-8, say tipsters on social media.

In fact, April looks set to be a big month for PS5 restocks.

Insiders claim console availability will be “good” after a “dry spell” at the end of March.

Rumours continue that Amazon is about to make a large drop of PS5 consoles any day now.

There are also hopes that stores like Very and John Lewis will also get their hands on the in-demand consoles in the first week of April.

MSTVTweets said: “Seems like a dry spell is ahead of us, but April will be good.”

And there are whispers from stock tracking sites claiming consoles will land at GAME in the coming week – although, as always, nothing is guaranteed.

Follow our PS5 live blog below for the very latest news, updates and stock drop rumours…

  • LEVEL UP

    Sony will reportedly open up its new console to internal memory upgrades in the coming months.

    The PS5’s 825GB memory drive leaves players with 667GB of usable space on which to store games and other files – and that fills up pretty fast.

    According to Bloomberg, a firmware update released by Sony this summer will add support for additional internal drives.

  • PLAYSTATION 5 STOCK LIKELY HELD UP BY EVER GIVEN

    It is believed that new stocks of the Playstation 5 have been held up by the blockade on the Suez Canal.

    Business Insider pointed out in its report on the ship’s situation that consumer electronics like video game consoles are usually built in factories in Asia, and then taken to other markets via maritime routes.

    According to Gaming Bible, there is a concurrent shortage of semiconductors that are used in a variety of electronic devices like televisions, cars, laptops, phones, and digital cameras.

    The companies that make semiconductors are now doing their best to catch up with the demand as a result of the shortage, which was caused by the pandemic.

    The Suez Canal, an artificial waterway that connects the Red Sea and the Mediterranean Sea, is one of the biggest trade routes for countless industries and facilitates approximately 12% of total trade around the world.

  • PLAYSTATION STORE IS CLOSING FOR OLDER CONSOLES

    Head’s up gamers:  Sony is closing down its PlayStation Store for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and PlayStation Portable this summer.

    It means anyone wanting to buy games for their retro systems online will have to do so before official marketplaces vanish worldwide.

    Sony announced the controversial move on Monday in a post on its website.

    The firm said: “We are closing PlayStation Store on PlayStation 3 consoles on 2nd July 2021 and on PlayStation Vita devices on 27th August 2021.

    “Additionally, the remaining purchase functionality for PSP will also retire on 2nd July 2021.”

  • NEW STOCK DROP PREDICTIONS

    Twitter tipsters are here with predictions for the next stock drops.

    Reliable tipster account @PS5StockAlertUK said this afternoon there was a high chance that stock would drop at Smyths Toys tomorrow, on the 1st of April.

    Another Amazon stock drop, following the mega-drop on Tuesday, was expected on April 13.

    No further news for Argos, Very, John Lewis or Asda at this stage.

  • SHORTAGE COULD GET WORSE

    THE PS5 shortage could get worse as chip-makers struggle to meet demand.

    Sony’s PlayStation 5 has been largely out of stock since November – and might not be widely available until July.

    Much of this is being blamed on a global “crisis” in the computer chip world.

    Demand for chips is through the roof, and suppliers can’t keep pace.

    Prices of chips are rising as a result, and major manufacturers like Apple and Samsung are being prioritised.

  • SMYTHS STOCK DROP EXPECTED ‘VERY SOON’

    A Twitter tipster has predicted stock will be dropping on the Smyths website “very soon”.

    @ps5ukstock3 made the prediction based on a change on the Smyth website formatting.

  • PETITION TO END SCALPING

    An online petition calling for an end to he buying and reselling of goods/services at inflated prices – known as scalping – has reached 17,913.

    It reads: “I believe it to be an unfair and unjust practice that well funded groups/individuals can deplete the stock of a single item and make it unaffordable/unavailable to the average consumer.

    “I believe the law around this practice needs to be reviewed and measures to prevent it need to be introduced.

    “This practice is most prevalent in the buying and re-selling of event tickets but also has a significant impact on the sales of trainers/clothes and technology. The most recent case in point is the launch of the PlayStation 5 and X Box Series X consoles.

    “Both pre-orders and launch day stock were sold out instantaneously and then thousands of listings appeared on eBay at over double the RRP. A reseller group claimed to have been able to secure 3500 of these.”

  • NEXT-GEN VR CONTROLLER ‘UNIQUE DESIGN’

    “The first thing you’ll notice with our next-gen VR controller is the unique design, which takes on an ‘orb’ shape that allows you to hold the controller naturally, while playing with a high degree of freedom,” writes Sony’s Hideaki Nishino in a March 2021 PS5 blog post.

    It adds: “There are no constraints with how you’re moving your hands, providing developers with the ability to create unique gameplay experiences.

    “We also designed the new controller with great ergonomics in mind, so it’s well-balanced and comfortable to hold in each of your hands.

    “We applied learnings from testing users with a range of hand sizes, as well as the decades of insights from controllers across all PlayStation platforms.

    “The result is an iconic design that will change how VR games are played.”
