UK gamers look set to get another at buying a PS5 console this month, with a GAME restock reportedly in the works.
There have been plenty of next-gen shipments already this month, and there are hopes that more are being planned for early December.
And the good news is that we know about at least one new UK PS5 stock update that will be arriving very soon.
A new report suggests that GAME will be hosting a PS5 restock before the end of November.
The only downside is that the retailer is known for bundling its consoles with extra stuff, increasing the overall price.
But if you don’t mind buying an extra controller or game, this could be one of the best chances we know about before the end of the year to buy a PlayStation 5.
Sony has also been hosting a lot of restock events via its PlayStation Direct website. However, as many of these are limited to just a small group, this means most customers miss out.
Meanwhile, the upcoming GAME restock will be open to everyone and should include a decent number of consoles to buy.
The UK retailer is expected to host its next PlayStation 5 event on November 30, although there is always a chance this will be delayed until December 2021.
The news has been shared by PS5 Stock UK – a reliable stock tracker account on Twitter – which is known for providing the best guides on what’s happening next.
The message posted on Twitter by PS5 Stock UK reads: “GAME has updated its PS5 release date to 9/12.
“Stock Checker can see that Priority Insured deliveries will be shipped by 3/12, with all other deliveries shipped by 9/12. This indicates a possible stock drop on 30/11.
Knowing when a PS5 restock is happening can be vital, but it’s also worth knowing how each retailer handles its shipments.
And here are a few examples of how best to try and buy a PlayStation 5 console from leading UK retailers:
AMAZON UK: Amazon UK runs better under strain but still comes with a few kinks worth mentioning. Having an account set up with your card details is a good start, and gamers should also try adding a console to their wishlist before checking out.
ARGOS: The Argos website is notorious for crashing and being unable to complete purchases when site traffic is high. Stock trackers suggest using the mobile Argos app and keeping an eye on local store listings.
GAME: GAME is a UK retailer that offers the most regular stock updates for PS5 consoles. However, console hunters have been warned to use Guest Checkout, as this option is less likely to crash when completing a purchase. The next GAME PS5 restock is expected to be hosted on November 30, 2021.
