PS5 restock: how to buy a PlayStation 5 on launch day at Amazon, Currys and more

By Staff, Thursday, 19 November 2020 08:28 GMT

While most retailers sold out of their initial PS5 stock allocation months ago, as the PlayStation 5 console launches in the UK and across Europe today, a handful of retailers have PS5 stock to sell on launch day.

As you’ll see from our PS5 review, the console really is a next-generation machine, and it already has a handful of absolutely banging games like Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Sackboy: A Big Adventure and Astro’s Playroom, that really show what Sony’s latest hardware is capable of.

But don’t let the fear of missing out get you down if you haven’t already got your hands on a PS5. Sony will be doing everything is can to make sure PS5 restocks happening between now and Christmas. In the UK and Europe, the PlayStation 5 launches today, and retailers such as Currys and Amazon have PS5 consoles to sell you if you’re quick. Even if you’re in the US, keep an eye on retailers such as Walmart, which are working to get a second wave of PS5 stock live on their websites as soon as they have them.

Below you’ll find a list of retailers in the UK and the times that they have promised to put PS5 stock live on their online stores. You’ll have to be quick to grab one, but there are quite a few stores selling the PS5, so don’t be defeated if your first choice falls through. Note though that some retailers are still taking pre-orders but can’t guarantee deliver immediately, while others have an alert that you can sign up for which should email you as soon as they have new PS5 stock.
