On the hunt for a shiny new console? We’re here to help.

UPDATE: The PS5 is now sold out at  AO, but is available to pre-order at Game. Read on for more information.

As we reach the end of 2021, the PlayStation 5 (PS5) is still difficult to buy in the UK, both online and in-store. The Sony game console has been on sale for over a year now, but supply problems and a worldwide semiconductor shortage sparked by the coronavirus pandemic have caused the production of the device to slow to a crawl.

If you didn’t find the console under your tree on Christmas Day, fear not, because the IndyBest team is here to help. This has been the best month for restocks on record, with several restocks taking place at Smyths ToysCurrysPlayStation DirectShopToVeryLittlewoodsGameStudioArgosEEBTAsdaAOJohn Lewis & Partners and Amazon, but will this trend continue into the new year?

If you’re still searching, you’ve come to the right place. Our liveblog is on hand to give you the latest insight on restocks from all major UK retailers, both online and in-store, as well as providing details on rumoured releases, plus the latest PS5 games and accessories to snap up.

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, for example, 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, of course, but this system is a neat way of rewarding BT customers and giving them a better chance of securing a console.

How to buy an Xbox series X

The Xbox series X is just as hard to buy as the PS5. In fact, in recent weeks restocks of the Microsoft console have been even rarer. Thankfully, the IndyBest team is on hand, with a live blog bringing you all of the latest news on Xbox restocks right across the UK.

If you’re in the market for an Xbox series X, head over to our live blog for your best chance of securing a console. As ever, the cheaper, smaller and less powerful Xbox series S is in stock at Game, Very, Argos and most other retailers, ready to buy right now.

Can you play PS4 games on PS5?

You sure can! The overwhelming majority of the PS4 games you own are playable on the PS5. You’ll be able to download any games you bought through the PlayStation store on your PS4 and play them on the next-gen console.

If you’ve got the disc edition of the PS5, you’ll also be able to insert your PS4 discs into it and play them that way, too. Obviously, because there’s no physical disc slot on the digital edition of the console, you won’t be able to play any PS4 discs you own. We’ve compiled together a list of our favourite PS4 games, and most of them have dropped in price since the PS5 came out.

PS5 storage expansion

Finally! After an entire year, Sony is letting gamers expand their PlayStation 5’s internal storage with the installation of an M.2 SSD. If you’re looking to expand your PS5’s storage, then we recommend the Seagate firecuda 530, which comes with a heatsink. It costs £175 (Currys.co.uk).

“A cooling structure, like a heatsink, is something all PS5-compatible SSDs require in order to work correctly, and it’s nice that you don’t have to do a hatchet jot of installing your own with this Seagate model,” our writer said in their review. “The firecuda 530 lets you conveniently download, copy and launch PS5 and PS4 games straight from the internal storage, as well as media apps like Plex. Transfer speeds are blazing fast as well, with Seagate saying that it delivers speeds of up to 7,000MB/s.”

John Lewis PS5 stock prediction

John Lewis hasn’t had much PS5 stock through 2021. We saw a couple of restocks in September, followed by one in October, a small drop in November, and the most recent on 29 December. Not exactly helpful when it came to Christmas shopping.

We wouldn’t bet against a restock arriving at some point in January, but we really can’t be more specific than that for now. You are probably best off looking elsewhere.

PS5 stock arrives in some branches of Game

We’re seeing PS5 stock available to buy right now at some branches of Game. As usual, the stores tweet about PS5 (and Xbox series X) stock levels, with Dumfries and Merchant Street among the stores with consoles available today.

As ever, you’ll need to be quick as these in-store consoles tend to be in short supply and sell out very quickly.

When to expect a restock at Currys

After a quiet November with just one restock, Currys had a massive December. According to our records, PS5 consoles landed at the retailer on 2, 7, 14, 17, 21, 22, 24 and 28 December. Talk about a Christmas miracle. Hopefully this momentum will continue into the new year, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see a quieter spell for Currys in January, given how busy the last few weeks have been.

When did Amazon last have a PS5 restock?

We last saw PS5 consoles available at Amazon‘s UK website on 23 December. As such, it could be a while now before another restock arrives. We saw just one restock in November, then pre-Christmas restocks landed on 15, 21 and 23 December. Hopefully January will see more consoles arrive at Amazon.
