PS5 stock UK live: update to today’s replenishment of John Lewis, Argos, Game, Very and more
Roki (PS5 Announcement Trailer)
The PS5 launched almost a year ago, in November 2020, but supply issues and a global semiconductor shortage have slowed production of Sony’s new game console. New stock is always very hard to find, and when it does show up, the PS5 sells out almost immediately.
September was a mixed bag when it came to PS5 restocking, but was still much better than June and July. While not a stain on the sunny August highlands, we still saw steep declines last month at Very, BT, EE, Argos, Amazon, Smyths Toys and Game. We had 10 drops to complete the month of September. The question now is, will October be that good? The news does not look good at the moment. This month we have only seen online restockings of AO.com, BT, and ShopTo, with Game join the gang on Tuesday this week, plus an in-store discount at Smyths Toys.
But don’t give up hope. If you’re still looking for a PS5, you’ve come to the right place. Our live blog is here to give you the latest information on Playstation 5 restocking from all major UK retailers, both online and in store, as well as providing details on release rumors, latest games. PS5 and accessories to buy.

Can you play PS4 games on PS5?
Yes you can! Almost any PS4 game you already own is playable on PS5. You will be able to download all the games you bought through PlayStation Store on your PS4 and play them on the next-gen console.
If you have the PS5 Disc Edition, you will also be able to insert your PS4 discs into it and play them that way. Obviously, since there is no physical disc slot on the digital edition of the console, you will not be able to play any PS4 discs you own. We have compiled together a list of our favorites PS4 games, and most of them have come down in price since the PS5 was released.

Is the PS5 in stock at local retailers?
Yes! But only if you are very fortunate. Several retailers occasionally have stocks of PS5s available for purchase in their physical stores, as opposed to online, but very few consoles appear on shelves. However, if you live or work near a branch of Smyths Toys, Game, Curries Where Argos, it is worth to call to check the stock.
Smyths Toys has a tool on its website that shows when consoles are available in each of its stores across the UK, while Game’s branches each have their own Twitter accounts, where PS5 stock is announced as they go. that consoles are available. This Twitter list includes tweets from all Game stores in the UK.

When will Argos have the next PS5 replenishment?
It may not happen today, but all eyes will be on Argos next week, as the retailer is expected to restock the PS5. This news snippet is from the PS5 Stock UK Twitter account, which this week reported how “a few warehouses have received shipments of PS5, both in disc and digital editions.” Sales of these consoles are expected to take place around October 20, so we’re looking at a drop in the middle of next week.

Read our review of the new Nintendo Switch OLED
While waiting for the next restocking of the PS5, here is our test of the new Nintendo Switch OLED. The updated handheld console now features a larger OLED display than before, with more vivid colors and deeper blacks, as well as a redesigned kickstand and double internal storage.
Our reviewer said, âThe bigger screen is fantastic and playing games in handheld mode is absolute fun. The kickstand is so solid and makes us want to never look at that little rocker on the back of the original Switch ever again … if you’re new to Nintendo Switch and haven’t bought one before, this is absolutely the best console version yet.
The new OLED Switch is available now, priced at Â£ 309.99 from Argos.

Can you get a VPN on the PS5?
Although Sony does not allow any VPN apps like NordVPN Where ExpressVPN Downloadable from PlayStation Store (VPNs aren’t supported on the platform at all), there’s always a way to use a VPN on the PS5 if you want to stream geo-restricted content.
We recommend that you get a VPN with Smart DNS capability. It’s a service provided by a number of VPN companies, including NordVPN, allowing you to spoof your location on devices that don’t support VPN. You can read our overview of best VPNs for more information.

How big is the PS5?
The PS5 is huge. Not just in popularity and performance, but literally – it’s a really large game console. So large that you might find it doesn’t actually fit under the TV, or where your current console is. To make sure you have room and to give you something handy to do while we all wait for the next replenishment, here are these crucial steps for the PS5 Disc Edition and the slightly thinner PS5 Digital Edition:
PS5 Disc Edition: 390x104x260mm
PS5 Digital Edition: 390x92x260mm
And if the console’s weight matters to you, the Disc Edition weighs 4.5kg and the Digital Edition, which doesn’t have a disc drive, weighs 3.9kg.

Will Very have a PS5 restock soon?
Very is one of the retailers that we expect to see a restocking of the PS5 soon. The website is currently reporting how the PS5 stock is “coming soon”. Very typically has fresh PS5 stock every two to three weeks, and the last replenishment was on September 14, so a drop from the retailer’s console is somewhat overdue. Very tends to release the new PS5 stock on Tuesday, so keep an eye out for the retailer early next week.

John Lewis & Partners could have a PS5 restock today
We were able to see a PS5 replenishment of John Lewis & Associates today. Yes really! But if it does, it will probably only be a small one. That’s according to folks on the PS5 Stock UK Twitter account, who claimed earlier this month that John lewis will have a restock today, October 15th.
But if that happens, securing a console can be difficult. It is claimed that less than 700 record editions and 300 digital editions will be this replenishment, so expect John Lewis to sell out again very quickly.
