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

THIS week could see more PS5 restocks dropping as Playstation fans predict new stock may even 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.

  • PETITION TO OUTLAW SCALPING PASSES 17,400 SIGNATURES

    A petition calling for the Government to crackdown on scalpers has hit 17,400 signatures and counting.

    The petition has smashed an initial target of 10,000 – the amount required to gain an official response to the petition. If it reaches 100,000 by its deadline date of June 10, the Government will consider it for debate in Parliament.

    Blurb on the petition page reads: This practice is most prevalent in the buying and re-selling of event tickets but also has a significant impact on the sales of trainers/clothes and technology.

    “The most recent case in point is the launch of the PlayStation 5 and X Box Series X consoles.

    “Both pre-orders and launch day stock were sold out instantaneously and then thousands of listings appeared on eBay at over double the RRP. A reseller group claimed to have been able to secure 3500 of these.”

  • GAME COULD TAKE PRE-ORDERS TOMORROW

    GAME could start taking PS5 pre-orders tomorrow.

    PS5 Stock UK tweeted: "I think GAME’s PS5 pre-orders drop will take place Wednesday 03/03 rather than Tuesday 02/03."

  • SONY SUED OVER ‘DEFECTIVE’ DUALSENSE JOYPADS

    Gamers are suing Sony over an alleged issue with PlayStation 5 controllers that causes them to “drift” during gameplay.

    In a class action suit recently filed in the US, a law firm claims that faulty controller joysticks are registering movement even when a player doesn’t touch them.

    They claimed that the next-gen console’s DualSense joypad – which costs just shy of £60 – is “defective”, Eurogamer reports.

    The bug “results in characters or gameplay moving on the screen without user command or manual operation of the joystick,” the filing reads.

    “This defect significantly interferes with gameplay and thus compromises the DualSense controller’s core functionality.”

  • HOW MUCH DOES THE PS5 COST?

    Sony launched two versions of the PlayStation 5 in the US on November 12, and in the UK on November 19.

    The full PS5 costs £449/$499, while a Digital Edition without a disc tray is priced at £359/$399.

  • SCALPERS SELLING PS5 CONSOLES FOR £8,000 ON EBAY

    Some eBay sellers are flogging PS5 consoles for well over the retail price.

    One seller has one listed for £8,000 – more than 16 times the retail price.

    Scalpers buy highly coveted items – like PS5s – in order to sell them on for a large profit.

  • 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."

  • DID YOU GET A PS5 TODAY?

    And if you haven't got one, keep your eyes open for upcoming restocks at other retailers too.

  • WHAT IS VALHEIM?

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

    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.

  • GAMER’S TREASURE

    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 pesky 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.”

    Caviar claims the golden PS5 will be assembled from eight sheets that cover the exterior, cast in 18-carat gold.

  • FINAL FANTASY VII SET FOR PLAYSTATION PLUS IN MARCH

    The Final Fantasy VII remake is set for Playstation Plus in March but this can't be upgraded to the PS5, according to reports.

    Twitter user 'Nibel' claims the Japanese PlayStation Store says that the PS4 version of the game is set to launch into the PS Plus Instant Game Collection this month, but if you get the RPG this way you cannot upgrade it to the PlayStation 5 version free of charge.

    News that people who already own Final Fantasy VII Remake for PlayStation 4 could upgrade to a newly-announced PS5 edition for free was announced yesterday during Sony’s State of Play broadcast.
