2022 looks to be one of the most promising years for PS5 gamers, with upcoming titles such som Elden Ring, Sifu, Horizon: Forbidden West, Gran Turismo 7 and maybe even the PS5 VR2 headset coming in the next few months. But customers are still struggling to get their hands on the console itself due to an ongoing and everlasting shortage in semiconductors.
Sony’s Playstation 5 was released in November 2020 and even over a year after its release, demand is still high. While January has been one of the slowest months for restocks, we’ve still seen a handful of restocks from PlayStation Direct, Spill, BT og TIL.
Our liveblog is here to get you one of Sony’s elusive next-gen consoles, as well as provide you with the details on the best games og tilbehør to grab alongside your new console. If you want to find out which online retailers will be the first to restock, then keep scrolling to receive updates as they happen.

Argos PS5 stock predictions
Argos is predicted to restock both the PS5 disc edition and digital edition consoles sometime next week. Argos is a bit of an interesting one because it tends to set consoles live in the dead of the night at around 1am, but you won’t be able to check out with the PS5 in your basket until 6am and beyond.
Most stock goes live at 8am, and is frequently available in-store for click and collect, rather than delivery. The retailer has never dropped on a Monday before, so we’d be looking at a restock from Tuesday onwards.

PS5 VR2 headset news
For anyone who missed the big news from the Consumer Electronics Show tidligere denne måneden, here’s a recap. PS5. VR2. Coming. Soon.
Det er riktig. At the event, Sony announced the name of its next-gen virtual reality headset for the PS5. Called the PlayStation VR2, the headset has 4K graphics with HDR, a 110-degree field-of-view and an OLED display with a resolution of 2000 x 2040 per eye. Frame rates of up to 120Hz promise smooth visuals as well.
Integrated cameras track your movement and your relative position to your environment, and there’s also eye tracking, headset feedback (ja, haptic feedback in the headset itself), 3D audio, and a new PS VR2 sense controller promising deeper immersion.
Sony also announced an exclusive game for the VR headset, called Horizon Call of the Mountain. Sadly there’s no news yet on when the game or the new headset will be available, or what the price will be, but you can read all the news and rumours in our PS5 VR2 round-up article below.
All you need to know about the upcoming PlayStation’s new PS VR 2 virtual reality gaming headset for the PS5 console.
PS5 price UK
As we’re sure you are all aware by now, Sony makes two versions of the PlayStation 5. The PS5 digital edition is priced at £349.99, while the regular PS5, which includes a disc drive, koster £ 449,99. The latter is the same as the Xbox series X, while the less powerful Xbox series S (which also lacks a disc drive) undercuts the digital PS5, at £249. Do note though that the Xbox series S is significantly less powerful than the PS5 digital edition.
Many retailers, gjelder også Spill, Veldig, Argos, ShopTo og Ace Studio, like to sell their PS5 stock in bundles. This often means spending more but getting extras like a second controller, a selection of games and other accessories. Bundles tend to be easier to get hold of, but you’ll end up spending more money than when buying the console on its own.
When did Smyths last restock the PS5 console?
Smyths Toys hasn’t had a single drop at all in 2022 ennå, The retailer last had stock available in December for in-store customers only, with the last online drop taking place months before.
According to the website, Smyths isn’t expecting consoles to make their way onto shelves until February. En gang til, we expect the next one to be another in-store restock, seeing as the retailer has all but given up with online drops.
Should you buy a PS5 from CeX?
Ah CeX, the butt of playground jokes and childhood second-hand game nostalgia. While we think fondly of CeX, we’d recommend not buying a PS5 from the retailer.
Hvorfor? Because you’ll be paying out the wazoo for a standalone disc edition console, with the retailer currently selling it for £650. The console usually costs around £449, so you’re better off waiting for Amazon or Very to restock the console than buying it for £200 extra. That smells a lot like scalper territory, if you ask us.
When could Very PS5 stock drop next?
Veldig had a nice lengthy restock on Tuesday morning and it lasted a good few hours, even stretching into the afternoon. It was the first drop from the online retailer in 2022, with the last stock drop taking place on 14 desember.
We aren’t expecting another restock at Very for a little while now, considering it only restocks the console once every month or so. Keep your eyes peeled for another drop towards the start of February. It always seems to drop on a Tuesday.
‘Elden Ring’: Release date and how to pre-order
Speaking of which, Elden Ring is one of the most highly anticipated games of 2022 and we can’t wait to get our hands on the game.
The action RPG was developed in collaboration with George R.R. Martin and from the early looks of the game, it promises to be just as demanding as previous FromSoftware titles such as Dark Souls og Bloodborne.
Elden Ring will be released on the PS5, as well as the Xbox series X, Xbox one, Playstation 4 and PC on 25 februar. You can read more about what’s coming to the game in our article below.
