PS5 UK stock LIVE – Argos and GAME bundles restock TODAY, plus Playstation console updates at ASDA and Smyths

GAME ON

THE PS5 Stock UK Twitter account Argos is expected to drop its stock of new bundles today.

It comes after PS5 consoles were dropped at GAME and ShopTo's UK online stores yesterday.

A huge Playstation 5 restock has long been predicted and it seems like we could finally see a proper supply of consoles on the shelves this month.

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.

  • PS5: LATEST GAME RELEASES ANNOUNCED

    During the latest Game Fest live stream, developers took the opportunity to announce new PS5 and PS4 games which are scheduled to release this year.  

    Hidetaka Miyazaki’s dark fantasy game Elden Ring was announced, detailed to be released on 22 January 2020 on both the PS4 and PS5. 

    Amazon only has the PS4 version available for pre-order, but those hoping to grab a PS5 shortly, the PS4 version of Elden Ring will have a free PS5 upgrade.

  • PS5 SHORTAGE ‘TO LAST UNTIL 2022’

    The global PlayStation 5 shortage is likely to continue until next year, leaving frustrated gamers unable to get their hands on a new console for months to come, according to one expert.

    Sony’s machine has been largely out of stock since November and probably won’t be available any time soon due to a shortfall in supply of microchips.

    Speaking to TechRadar on Sunday, analyst Anshel Sag suggested that as a result of the chip crisis, PS5 shortages will drag on for months to come.

    “I honestly don’t see this shortage getting better until next year,” said Sag, a Senior Analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy.

  • HIGH LEVEL OF DEMAND

    Speaking earlier this year, one expert described the tech industry’s microchip woes as a full-blown crisis.

    “Chips are everything,” said Neil Campling, speaking to The Guardian in March.

    “There’s a perfect storm of supply and demand factors going on here.

    “But basically, there is a new level of demand that can’t be kept up with.”

  • VIRTUALLY REAL

    Sony says it’s working on a new virtual reality headset designed for the PlayStation 5 – and it could be out as early as next year.

    The Japanese tech titan has already teased some of the PSVR 2’s specs and capabilities, but is keeping the exact release date a closely guarded secret.

    They said, should everything go to plan, the gadget will hit shelves “in the holiday period next year”.

    That means we’re most likely looking at a release date of November or December 2022.

    Plans could change between now and then, of course, so take that date with a pinch of salt until we hear something concrete from Sony.

  • WASTED

    Grand Theft Auto developer Rockstar has announced that it is shutting down the game’s popular multiplayer mode on some consoles.

    GTA Online, which is played by more than 100,000 people globally, will cease to exist on Xbox 360 and PS3 from December 16.

    The move will bring an end to the multiplayer mode as well as website stat tracking via the Rockstar Games Social Club, Rockstar said.

    The US company will continue to run the service on Xbox One and PS4, where it’s still going strong nearly eight years on from the launch of GTA 5.

    “Please note, these changes are strictly for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of GTA Online,” Rockstar said in a statement on Wednesday.

    The shutdown “will have no impact on access to, or progress within, the Grand Theft Auto V Story Mode”, the New York-based firm added.
