PS5 restock has been good this week, with Game, Asda, Very and ShopTo all having received and sold fresh PS5 stock. Smyths even had a Ratchet & Clank PS5 bundle, which is set to get more stock this month. 

Over the weekend, however there are no PS5 restocks tipped to happen. But do give the remailers below a quick look just in case. 

In the meantime, Game has a suite of PS5 bundles available to pre-order. Bundles are handy as they put off scalpers, meaning stock should stick around for a little longer. All this is reasonably promising when it comes to finding where to buy the PS5. We've also collated a selection of alternative retailers that could have PS5 stock. We suggest you check them out as well as the main U.K. retailers we've listed below.

We've collected a list of U.K. retailers to check for PS5 stock, as well as our handy widget that'll surface any PS5 bundles. We'll be keeping our eyes peeled for stock updates as well.

A note on PS5 restocks

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 to buy PS5 UK: Latest updates

As of June 11 of writing, the PS5 is sold out or unavailable at most U.K. retailers. 

Sadly, it doesn't look like the PS5 restock disaster is going away any time soon, and the PS5 UK Stock - Instant Updates noted that Sony didn't pre-order enough microchips for April and this PS5 production and sales will apparently be lower for several weeks due to this. However, if you do manage to get your hands on one, you'll have got a gaming tech bargain.

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.
