PS5 UK stock updates – GAME to be restocked TODAY plus how to get consoles from Currys, Very and Smyths

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

The restock was delayed and should have happened yesterday, but due to staff shortages it was pushed back.

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.
