Next-gen gamers have been told about two stock drops happening this week concerning Xbox Series X and PS5.

According to Stock Checker UK on Twitter, Argos hosted an Xbox Series X stock drop this week, and the page is still live at the time of writing.

This means it’s worth heading over to Argos and checking to see if there is anything else for those trying to hunt down a Microsoft console.

One big drawback is that this is a regional drop, meaning that it could be sold out in your area when you go to check.

It should also be noted that Smyths are expected to host a PS5 stock drop later today, December 2.

This has been reported as an in-store restock, meaning you will need to check with your local shop to find out if they have any PlayStation 5 units for sale.

The message from PS5 Stock UK on Twitter reads: “Smyths Toys will be offering PS5 pre-orders tomorrow morning with the following:

“Low quantity stock, Disc Edition only, £20 deposit upfront (part of total cost), and the drop begins when your local store opens.”

It’s unclear how much stock there will be available today but gamers are being warned that the drop could start as early as 8am GMT on December 2.

As mentioned above, there will only be one edition of PS5 console to buy and here are the differences between the digital and disc PlayStation 5 consoles:

“The only difference between the PS5 console and the PS5 Digital Edition console is the inclusion of an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive in the PS5 console. The PS5 Digital Edition console does not feature a disc drive.

“The PS5 console features an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive that will allow you to play PS5 Blu-ray disc games and PS4 Blu-ray disc games, as well as play video from 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Discs, standard Blu-ray discs, and DVDs.

“The PS5 Digital Edition console does not have an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive. PS5 Digital Edition console owners will be able to buy PS5 and PS4 games from PlayStation Store or access games via PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now.

“And more than 99% of the 4,000+ PS4 games can also be played on either the PS5 console or the PS5 Digital Edition console, though with the PS5 Digital Edition console these games will need to be downloaded from PlayStation Store while the PS5 model with a Blu-ray disc drive will also support PS4 Blu-ray discs.”

Stock shortages continue in the UK and it remains very difficult to buy a next-gen console in December 2021. The good news is that more restocks are expected throughout the month and during early 2022.
