Well this morning has been a big one for PS5 restocks, with ShopTo and EE reportedly having had console drops. But when we checked we saw no available PS5 stock, which once again suggests the demand is so high and the supply is so low that you need to be very lucky to secure a console in such restocks; let us know if you do get lucky!
Meanwhile, check out the retailers below in case you stumble across a sneaky PS5 restock. And while you're there make sure to sign up for restock alerts.

You can also take a look at Rory Mellon's story of his year-long tracking of PS5 pre-orders, sales and restocks for his tips on how to secure a PS5. We're also hoping that news of scalpers getting less for re-sold PS5 consoles might make getting one of Sony's gaming machines a little easer, but time will tell on that.
As it currently stands, PS5 restock is incredibly difficult to pin down. Despite our best efforts to bring you timely updates, Tom's Guide can't guarantee you'll be able to purchase a console. Nevertheless, we are committed to bringing you up-to-the-minute information on all restocks as soon as they happen.

Where buy PS5 in the UK: Tips and tricks
Get prepared: Make sure you have all the right payment card details and two-factor authentication available and to hand when you find a PS5 ready to buy. Units can go so fast that if you’re rushing around trying to find your credit card you could miss your chance to secure a PS5 order.
Select a retailer: As you can see from our list above, there are plenty of retailers to choose from, which can actually make the whole process of buying a PS5 a bit complicated. We suggest you select a couple of major retailers like Walmart and Amazon and keep an eye on their PS5 landing pages.
Sign up to stock alerts: Plenty of retailers offer to alert you to when they have PS5 stock in. We suggest you sign up to those services for the retailers that are offering them.
Find the right product page: It might sound obvious, but make sure you’re on the actual buying page for the PS5 or the PS5 Digital Edition. If you’re on a landing page, you might end up missing the moment new stock arrives.
Sign in to retailers: Make sure you sign in to any retailers you might already have an account with. This will make things a lot faster when buying a PS5 if you spot one on sale. And speed is of the essence today.
Keep refreshing and don't give up: It can be a little demoralizing trying to find PS5 stock when everywhere looks sold out. But regularly refresh product pages to see what pops up; you might get lucky. And also keep checking back here for any PS5 stock updates.
If you still haven't had any luck getting a console, you can always check our stock widget below. If any other retailers get PS5 stock in throughout the day it'll show up there. So if you see something jump on that opportunity as soon as you can.
