If you’ve previously missed out on getting your hands on a PlayStation 5 you could be in luck as there’s rumoured to be a few more chances this week.
Gamers have found it incredibly difficult to get their hands on Sony’s newest console following its launch last year with restocks selling out within minutes.
The last PlayStation 5 restock happened in July 2021 – but to fans’ disappointment the consoles sold out almost instantly once again.
Luckily, Twitter tipster PS5StockAlertUK has shared some exciting news regarding new stock arriving on GAME this week and said: “The release date for the bundle listings on GAME’s site has been updated to 30/09/21, indicating an online restock between 21st-23rd September.”
If the new stock does arrive this week, gamers are being warned to be on the site between 8am and 11am BST to have a chance at buying a console.
Amazon UK is another retailer that is expected to offer more PS5 stock in September; however, it’s unclear at this time when the consoles will be available.
John Lewis has also been said to be restocking the PS5, but according to PS5StockAlertUK, the consoles were expected to arrive on the 20th September, however due to a slight delay of shipment, it’s been rumoured the online restock will now take place between the 5th-7th October 2021.
There are two versions of the next generation PlayStation 5 console available to buy. The PS5 Digital Edition, which retails at £349.99, and the PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive, which is priced at £449.99.
