PS5 UK updates – Smyths CONFIRM new stock within 10 DAYS with Playstation 5 consoles ‘on way’ to Amazon UK, GAME & Argos

PS5 stock is expected soon at Smyths Toys - with a new listing on it's website showing consoles could drop within the next TWO WEEKS.

The PlayStation 5 console has been listed with “Out of stock. Expected in stock: May 2021” on the Smyths Toys website.

It’s currently April 20, which means there are 10 days left for the stock to appear. That means gamers should be checking back at Smyths Toys regularly over the next two weeks for new stock.

It’s unclear exactly when the stock will be back on the website.

Meanwhile, GAME are expected to finally receive PS5 stock in mid May - as the Suez Canal crisis means more PS5 consoles until 'unlikely' until the end of April.

A Twitter account that watches updates, @PS5StockAlertUK, said the likely restock is “officialising what we stated beforehand that the April restock dates were placeholders.

“This alone shows that we may not see any PS5s from any retailers during April at all.”

According to industry tracking firm NPD Group, the Playstation 5 has become the fastest-selling console in U.S. history.

The new record was related to both unit and dollar sales, FanBye reported.

In addition to this, the PlayStation 5 DualSense controller was also the leading accessory in dollar sales for not just March, but also the whole first quarter of 2021.

Sony's previous quarterly sales report showed the PlayStation 5 sold 4.5 million units in 2002.
