PS5 stock UK – live: Today’s PS5 restock updates from AO, Smyths & Tesco after GAME and Very sell out of Playstations

PS5 consoles are now out of stock at GAME and Very.

Playstation fans flocked to the website to pick-up bundles after stock trackers revealed new bundles had arrived as predicted.

But as of 3.30pm, both sites appeared to have totally run out.

It comes as the MUCH sought-after consoles are expected to drop at AO, John Lewis, Currys, Amazon and more over the coming days.

A huge Playstation 5 restock has long been predicted and it seems like today is the day we could finally see consoles on the shelves.

The PS5 was released six months ago to critical acclaim but for millions of gamers it has proven almost impossible to get hold of.

Thanks to parts shortages, coronavirus-related delays and then, incredibly, a giant container ship blocking the Suez canal and holding up deliveries, supplies to the UK has been incredibly limited.

    PLAYSTATION RELEASE NEW SYSTEM UPDATE AHEAD OF TODAY'S SURGE IN SALES

    THE software update 21.01-03.20.00 is set to improve system performance, which includes an update to the DualSense controller, alongside several other fixes.

    The controller update fixes a battery indicator bug which had resulted in the battery icon constantly blinking (indicating low battery) even though the controller wasn’t low on charge.

    The update also solves a PS5 screen reader issue, improvements when moving games from USB to console as well as hidden games problems.

    Other updates include:

    • Improved system performance
    • DualSense wireless controller device software update
    • resolved restricted functionality issues
    • Made progress of copying games from USB so they are more stable in the storage game library

    BATTLEFIELD 6 RELEASE DATE – WHEN IS IT OUT?

    Battlefield 6 doesn't have a public release date, so we're still in the dark to some degree.

    But EA financial documents suggest that the game is due to come out in the final three months of 2021.

    That means we should expect Battlefield 6's release date to fall at some point between October and December.

    We'd suspect that October and November are more likely, to give sufficient run-up to Christmas.

    For context, Battlefield 5 launched on November 20, 2018. And Battlefield 4 was out on October 29, 2013.

    JOHN LEWIS PS5 RESTOCK MAY COME NEXT WEEK

    John Lewis is also rumoured to drop today, although it looks like the restock is now planned for next week instead.

    It's worth checking the website throughout the day, although console drops normally take place by 9am at the latest.

      EXPLAINED: WHAT IS THE PS5

      The PS5 is Sony’s latest and greatest gaming console.

      It’s the successor to the PS4 and PS4 Pro, and is available in two distinct versions.

      Those are the pricey PS5 proper with all the bells and whistles, and the digital edition, which is cheaper but with no disc tray.

      GAME SOLD OUT?

      With Game's PS5 page going down, it seems as though the popular console has now sold out or there has been too much demand.

      Considering there were 20,000 Playstation's up for sale in May, this drop proved just how much smaller it was, having lasted about an hour before selling out.

      Some of those who ordered their console in May are still waiting for their console to be shipped. It's possible the backlog will be cleared ahead of today's release.
