PS5 stock has been selling thick and fast, with PlayStation 5 consoles flying off the shelves at lightning fast speeds whenever stock has become available. It’s approaching a month since the PS5 launched and still it’s incredibly hard to come by at major retailers such as Argos, GAME, Amazon, ASDA and Tesco. But fans have been given reason to hope that some online stores in the UK could be getting more PS5 stock to buy in the run-up to Christmas.
First up, let’s get the bad news out of the way – Argos has confirmed that they won’t be receiving any more PS5 stock for the rest of the year.
When you head to the PS5 page on the Argos website you’ll be greeted with a message which says: “Sorry, PlayStation 5 is currently unavailable.
“We will not have any further stock for the rest of 2020.”
However, a number of Twitter accounts focused on PS5 stock update have raised hopes that more PlayStation 5 units could become available to buy in December in the UK at other online stores.
One of these is the @PS5UKStock Twitter account who highlighted the UK retailers who are yet to receive a PS5 restock since the console’s November launch.
In a post online the PS5 UK Stock Twitter wrote: “Everyone must be forgetting that Very, Currys, John Lewis, AO etc. are yet to restock. These are the potential drops before Christmas.”

While in separate tweet the account also said rumours are circulating that Currys PC World could be getting more PS5 stock in the lead up to Christmas.
The account posted: “No news at the moment. I’ve heard that @curryspcworld are preparing to drop stock in the run up to Christmas.”
Elsewhere the @PS5STOCKNOW Twitter in a post online highlighted some upcoming dates where the PS5 is rumoured to be back in stock at a number of major retailers.
Here are the rumoured restock dates: Tesco – on December 13, GAME UK – on December 14, Amazon UK – on December 14, ASDA – after Christmas, Smyths Toys – early 2021.
The ASDA Service Team Twitter account has confirmed that they won’t be getting any more PS5 stock before Christmas, backing up what @PS5STOCKNOW tweeted.
Replying to one customer, the @ASDAServiceTeam account wrote: “Sorry to disappoint but we won’t have any PS5 stock until after Christmas now. We don’t have a date for this yet.”
While tweeting another PS5 fan the ASDA account wrote: “We won’t be getting any more stock of the PS5 in until after Christmas unfortunately. Keep your eyes peeled and be ready to grab it as soon as it comes back in”.
Elsewhere, GAME this week has launched an ongoing competition which offers over 100 PlayStation prizes, including four PS5 bundles up for grabs.
There are two PS5 Digital Edition console bundles and two bundles for the PS5 console which comes fitted with a Blu-ray drive.
Both bundles include Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Demon’s Souls, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, and 12 months access to both PS Plus and PlayStation Now.
To be in with a chance of winning these coveted prizes, you need to head to the GAME website between 3pm and 5pm GMT on select dates.
The first date this competition ran was on Monday December 7, but it is also running on Tuesday December 8, Thursday December 10, Tuesday December 15 and Thursday December 17.
The competition tasks gamers with searching across the GAME website for the iconic PlayStation triangle, circle, cross and square symbols.
These will be hidden across the over 1,000 pages on the GAME website, with clues being dished out on Twitter and Facebook as to where to find them.
In total, there are over £10,000 worth of PlayStation prizes up for grabs – including PS4 console and PlayStation VR bundles.
