PS5 stock UK – Currys ‘to sell Playstations TODAY’ – plus how you can get consoles at GAME, Argos, Very and Smyths

THIS could see more PS5 restocks dropping as Playstation fans predict new stock will land at Curry's TODAY.

The store is one of very few major UK retailers who didn't restock in February, which has convinced multiple Twitter stock trackers that March could bring a Currys console drop.

Playstation CEO Jim Ryan reassured fans that Sony are "working as hard as they possibly can" to get more stock and blamed a global shortage in semiconductors for a slow rollout that has caused prolonged misery around the world.

"I know there were people who wanted a PS5 and couldn’t find one. We’re very sorry about that and obviously grateful that demand has been as strong as it is," he said.

  • PS5 VIRTUAL REALITY HEADSET

    Sony has confirmed it is working on a new version of its PlayStation VR headset designed for the PlayStation 5.

    The Japanese tech titan said the new gear, out as early as next year, promises "dramatic leaps in performance and interactivity".

    "Our next-generation VR system will be coming to PlayStation 5, enabling the ultimate entertainment experience," Sony’s Hideaki Nishino wrote in a blog post.

    "Players will feel an even greater sense of presence and become even more immersed in their game worlds once they put on the new headset."

  • LATEST FROM CURRYS AND AMAZON

    It's worth keeping a close eye on the Amazon and Currys websites today amid rumours of a restock.

    One keen PS5 stock tracker has been refreshing the sites since 7.30am.

    "I have been refreshing Currys and Amazon since 7.30am so pretty much nothing has showed up," they wrote on Twitter.

    "Amazon could still drop but if not then they will definitely drop tomorrow."

  • 'MARCH WILL BE FUELLED WITH PS5 STOCK'

    It's officially March, which could be good news for those who want to get their hands on a PS5.

    One PS5 stock tracker wrote: "March will be fuelled with PS5 stock from major retailers such as Amazon, Argos, GAME, Smyths etc.

    "Since the launch, we’ve seen an increase in stock distributed every month. It would see some of the shortages cut. Keep your heads up guys."

  • IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

    GAME have confirmed a drop of PS5 stock for March 16.

    Based on past drops, @PS5UKSTOCK expects pre-orders to go live tomorrow.

    "We don't know the drop size, anyone who claims to know is purely guessing," the Twitter account said.

  • PLAYSTATION GIVE THEMSELVES PAT ON THE BACK

    PlayStation boss Jim Ryan praised the company for delivering a “considerable amount” of consoles into the UK market last week.

    He told GQ: "We’re doing our best. I was just looking at the supply figures for the UK – we put a considerable amount of product into the UK market last week.

    "And that will continue over weeks and months to come."

  • ‘WE’RE CONTINUING TO INNOVATE’

    More on the new virtual reality system for the PS5

    The current PSVR headset is compatible with the new PS5, which was released late last year, but Sony said it wants to offer a next-generation VR system to go with its newest console.

    “We’re continuing to innovate with our new VR system so that our fans can continue to enjoy the unique experiences that are synonymous with PlayStation,” said spokesman Hideaki Nishino said.

  • PS5 DEMAND ‘GREATER THAN ANTICIPATED’

    The PS5 has been out for around three months – but they’re fiendishly difficult to get a hold of.

    Resellers were peddling the console for thousands of pounds in the days after launch.

    And even months later, the PS5 is still in such high demand – with PlayStation president Jim Ryan admitting to the Financial Times it was “greater than anticipated.”

    “That, along with the complexities of the supply chain issues, resulted in a slightly lower supply than we initially anticipated.”

  • IS VALHEIM GOOD?

    Early feedback on Valheim has been truly exceptional.

    The rampant sales for an Early Access game already go some way to showing its brilliance.

    And while sales don't mean a game is good, positive reviews generally do.

    At the time of writing, Valheim has an Overwhelmingly Positive rating.

  • HOW MANY PLAYERS DOES VALHEIM HAVE?

    Part of the reason why Valheim is being talked about so much is its staggering player base.

    Despite only launching in Early Access on February 2, it's racked up 4million players in total.

    And it even hit a staggering 500,000 concurrent players on Steam, which is very high indeed.

    These numbers are expected to quickly grow as more would-be Vikings flock to Valheim.

  • VERY NORSE

    Valheim is the game of the moment, but what is it?

    If you haven't heard of Valheim, you will soon.

    It's a wildly popular survival sandbox video game set in the world of Vikings.

    The game is technically "upcoming", although it's available to buy and play on Steam in Early Access.

    You play as a Viking sent to a strange and distant realm called Valheim, where you need to forge a life.

  • RESTOCK UPDATE

    Amazon have reportedly received shipments of PS5 consoles.

    It adds onto the list of big retailers who currently have stock – including Argos, Curry’s and GAME, all of which are expected to drop the consoles next week.

    Twitter account @PS5StockAlertUK tipped eager fans of the news, adding that there are no stock drops expected over the weekend. 

  • MEMORY BOOST

    A memory boost will prove vital to gamers as major titles eat through more drive space than ever before.

    The latest Call of Duty game needs 133GB of installation space, while most marquee titles take up at least 40GB each.

    Sony showed gamers how to add an additional drive to the PS5 in a console teardown video released last October.

    Once the console is opened up, the drive can be plugged in to the spare NVMe slot on the console.

  • GRAN TURISMO COVID DELAYS

    Car racing video game Gran Turismo 7 will now be delayed until 2022.

    Sony has revealed that the highly anticipated game won’t be released until next year due to Covid-19 issues.

    The global pandemic has caused a lot of production issues in many industries and that includes those developing video games.

    Sony told GQ: “GT7 has been impacted by Covid-related production challenges and therefore will shift from 2021 to 2022. With the ongoing pandemic, it’s a dynamic and changing situation and some critical aspects of game production have been slowed over the past several months. We’ll share more specifics on GT7’s release date when available.”

  • UK RETAILERS SET TO RESTOCK

    A vast array of UK retailers are set to restock PlayStation 5 consoles this week, according to social media stock trackers.

    One PS5 stock tracker wrote: "Amazon have received shipments of the PS5 this week. This adds onto the list of big retailers who currently have stock which are Amazon, Argos, Curry’s and GAME. All will drop next week. More details will be tweeted as I find out over the weekend."

    It added: "Confirmed PS5 stock drop by GAME with pre-orders next Tuesday (02/03). Expected stock size is around 10K-15K again. The last guaranteed dispatch (release date) is 16/03. I'll drop the bundles page link below as a thread."

  • GOLDEN PS5

    A gold-plated PlayStation 5 has gone on sale online slapped with a gargantuan price tag and coupled with crocodile skin controllers.

    Luxury Russian retailer Caviar is selling the bougie machine for $500,000 (£359,000) – meaning it should at least be safe from scalpers.

    According to the store's listing, the dazzling device is a "mixture of rationality and brightness, pure fine lines, and deliberate luxury".

    It adds: "Caviar jewellers could not pass by such a luxurious and very difficult to manufacture golden version of the PlayStation."

  • PS5 VIRTUAL REALITY HEADSET

    Sony has confirmed that it is working on a new version of its PlayStation VR headset designed for the PlayStation 5.

  • COD FANS FORCED TO DELETE CHUNKS OF GAME

    Activision has admitted that the latest Call of Duty game collection is now so large that it no longer fits on the original PlayStation 4.

    According to the US developer, if you want the latest Call of Duty: Warzone update and the full Black Ops: Cold War and Modern Warfare package, you'll have to uninstall something to make room.

    That's because the 17GB update takes the total storage needed for the trio to over 500GB – making them too large to fit the base PS4 hard drive.

    Players on that console must therefore choose to remove certain Call of Duty content from their storage for a smaller overall file size. 

  • CHILDREN GAME DANGER

    Children playing games on Xboxes and PlayStations have been groomed by paedophiles.

    They are among more than 1,000 victims to be targeted online in the past two years, according to police force data.

    Many grooming cases involve popular sites and apps such as Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter.

    But a handful of the 1,009 online grooming cases involved PlayStations and Xboxes.
