Where to buy the PS5 in the U.K. is a difficult question as all major U.K. retailers are lacking in stock across the board. Both the standard PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition, priced at £449.99 and £359.99 respectively, are virtually nowhere to be found.
But winter is coming and with it comes the Christmas holidays. So we're quietly hoping to see more PS5 console stock pop up in U.K. retailers so people have a new games console to use across the holiday period.
Make sure to check out our selected retailers below. Just remember to keep refreshing the pages as you never know when you might get lucky.

PS5: Where to buy in the UK
Your best bet at securing a PS5 now is likely to be with the bigger retailers. Several of them had some stock appear online on launch day, but as expected it sold out within just a few minutes. But some of them were drip feeding us, and are likely to continue to do so, so it's worth checking back on a semi-regular basis.
Below are some quick links for you to check all the aforementioned retailers and some other big names that may get stock in at some point over the coming weeks.
PS5 at Amazon UK
PS5: £449 at Amazon UK
Amazon UK has promised launch day stock would go live at 12 p.m., but they sold out almost immediately. As one of the biggest retailers in the U.K. they're guaranteed to get more, so keep checking back.View Deal
PS5 pre-orders at Currys
PS5: £449 at Currys
Currys had promised launch day stock, but after delays and technical issues this was scrapped. In other words Currys is more likely to have stock sooner, but it's not clear when. Watch this space.View Deal
PS5 at Game
PS5:£449 at GAME
GAME kept PS5 stock was on hold and kept until later in the day, but long virtual queue times means that they were sold out before many had a chance to buy. As the main high street video game retailer, GAME will get more in eventually, it's only a matter of when.View Deal
PS5 at BT
PS5 at Sony
PS5: £449 at Sony
Sony naturally has a dedicated sales page for the PS5, but nothing new appeared on launch day. That said if anyone is going to have stock it's Sony, and it's well worth checking in at regular intervals.View Deal
PS5 at Argos
PS5 at John Lewis
PS5: £449 at John Lewis
John Lewis did sell the PS5 but after its stock ran out it declared that the console will no longer be available. We can take this as a warning not to expect any new stock anytime soon. View Deal
PS5 at Very
PS5: £449 at Very.co.uk
Very's stock quickly sold out, but it had been dripfeeding people with new consoles throughout the day. In other words there may be more to come, and you should keep checking back to see.View Deal
PS5 at ShopTo
PS5 at Asda
PS5: £449 at Asda
Despise being a mostly food retailer, Asda is also selling the PS5. However, it's currently out of stock. It's worth keeping an eye on its PS5 page though as stock could suddenly be replenished. View Deal
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.
