August is expected to include at least one final drop in PS5 stocks, with a few surprises also expected.
And the PS5 news this week includes an important update for those still trying to buy a PlayStation console.
Many players use inventory tracking accounts to keep abreast of the latest UK replenishment events.
And there have been significant drops already, with restockings of GAME, Scan, Smyths and Currys in August.
And it looks like Amazon UK will be the next retailer to offer a major shipment to gamers.
That’s still a prediction for now, but it looks like Amazon will have next-gen consoles in stock next week.
This means Amazon is expected to offer thousands of PlayStation 5 consoles for purchase before September 2021.
No set date has been confirmed by the reliable PS5 Stock UK stock tracking account, but more news could be shared in the next 24 hours.
And Argos is another retailer that is expected to offer PS5 shares in the coming weeks, having already released thousands in August.
However, it should be noted that Argos is not expected to restock during the current month, which means it will arrive in September.
Argos remains a major supplier of PlayStation consoles and generally uses a regional launch schedule.
This means that the stock does not come all at once and that an Argos stock drop can last for several hours.
Demand remains very high for PS5 consoles in 2021 as retailers are unable to meet demand.
Next-gen stocks typically sell within hours of release, leaving many to wait to buy one.
So far, the company has confirmed that it has sold 10 million units worldwide, reaching the milestone on July 18.
Knowing when a PS5 restock is happening can be vital, but it’s also worth knowing how each retailer handles their shipments.
And here are some examples of the best way to try and buy a PlayStation 5 console from major UK retailers:
ARGOS: Argos website has been known to crash and be unable to complete purchases when site traffic is high. Stock trackers suggest using the Argos mobile 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 making a purchase. The next PS5 stock is expected in September.
AMAZON UNITED KINGDOM: Amazon UK works best under power, but still has a few flaws that are 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. More stock is expected before the end of August 2021.
More news is expected from major retailers and inventory tracking accounts over the coming week regarding plans for September.
