All the latest news on PS5 console restocks at retailers across the UK, including Argos, Game and John Lewis
It is now over a year since Sony’s latest games console, the Playstation 5, first arrived in the UK in November 2020. But supply problems and a worldwide chip shortage sparked by the pandemic have caused production to slow. New stock is still tricky to find, and when it does appear the PS5 sells out quickly.

Why are games console stocks so low?
If you’re new to the PlayStation 5/Xbox Series X hunt, firstly, welcome to the dance and, secondly, you might be interested in my explainer below looking into the reasons behind this most frustrating phenomenon.
What is at the heart of it and when will the situation be resolved?

How to get a PS5 voucher code from BT
BT is giving its customers a helping hand when it comes to securing a PS5.
Instead of throwing open the virtual doors and dealing with a stampede like other retailers, BT sends out unique voucher codes to its customers.
If you are a BT TV customer, por exemplo, or subscribe to BT Sport, you can apply to receive a PS5 voucher code.
These are emailed out sporadically and can be used to access a PS5 next time the BT store has a restock.
You still have to pay the regular price, claro, but this system is a neat way of rewarding BT customers and giving them a better chance of securing a console.
What’s the difference between the two models of PS5?
Sony sells two versions of the PS5. These are known as the disc edition and the digital edition. They have the same performance, design and technical specifications, but the digital edition does not have a disc drive.
This means games can only be played by downloading them and obviously there’s no way to play DVDs or Blu-ray movies.
The digital edition is also cheaper, at £359.99 compared to £449.99 for the disc edition.
How big is the PS5?
Not as strange a question as you might think, because the PS5 is massive. It’s often an easy joke to say how big the next generation of game consoles are, ever since the chunky original Xbox arrived, followed by the even bigger PS4.
Mas, while the Xbox série X is also rather large, it’s the PS5 that is least likely to fit under your television. The digital edition is slightly slimmer, due to not having a disc drive, but both consoles are equally tall when stood on end.
They are 390mm tall and 260mm deep, while the disc edition is 104mm thick and the digital edition is 92mm. Both consoles are intended to be stood upright, but also come with a plastic stand to help them rest on their side – likely the only way most buyers will fit the console under their TV.
Can you get a VPN on the PS5?
While Sony doesn’t allow any VPN apps like NordVPN ou ExpressVPN to be downloaded from the PlayStation Store (VPNs aren’t supported on the platform at all), there’s still a way to use a VPN on the PS5 if you want to stream geo-restricted content.
We’d recommend getting a VPN which has the Smart DNS feature. It’s a service provided by a number of VPN firms, including NordVPN, allowing you to spoof your location on devices that don’t have VPN support.
You can read our round-up of the best VPNs for more information.
Can you play PS4 games on the PS5?
Com certeza você pode! A esmagadora maioria dos jogos PS4 que você possui podem ser reproduzidos no PS5. Você poderá baixar todos os jogos comprados na PlayStation Store em seu PS4 e jogá-los no console de última geração.
Se você tem a edição em disco do PS5, você também poderá inserir seus discos PS4 nele e reproduzi-los dessa forma, também.
Obviamente, porque não há slot de disco físico na edição digital do console, você não conseguirá reproduzir nenhum disco PS4 de sua propriedade.
We’ve compiled together a list of our favourite Jogos PS4, e a maioria deles caiu de preço desde o lançamento do PS5.

Enquanto isso, Demon’s Souls (£ 57,99, Currys.co.uk) no PS5 é uma demonstração do que o novo console é capaz.
