Will this finally be the day you secure a console?

Update: CurrysSmyths ToysJohn Lewis & Partners and Asda have yet to drop stock this month. Could they restock before February? Read on for more information.

2022 looks to be one of the most promising years for PS5 gamers, with upcoming titles such as Elden RingSifuHorizon: Forbidden WestGran Turismo 7 and maybe even the PS5 VR2 headset coming in the next few months. But what of the PS5 itself?

Well, we’re sad to say that customers are still struggling to get their hands on a PS5 console due to the ongoing global semiconductor shortage, which has had a big impact on supply chains for over a year now.

Sony’s Playstation 5 was released in November 2020 and even though we’re now in 2022, demand for the console is still high. January has been one of the slowest months for restocks on record, but we have seen a handful of restocks from PlayStation DirectGameBT , AmazonVery and AO, indicating that things are starting to pick up again.

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 and accessories 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.

Smyths Toys PS5 stock predictions

Smyths Toys is another retailer which hasn’t had a restock at all this month. According to the retailer’s website, it expects more consoles to be made available sometime in February, but take this with a pinch of salt.

That message is usually a placeholder and changes frequently. It also doesn’t take into account in-store restocks, meaning that if an in-store restock takes place, the website won’t be updated to reflect it.

We’re often relying on the @PS5StockAlertUK Twitter account to leak Smyths Toys restock dates thanks to the leaker’s insider knowledge. If it does drop, then it will likely be in-store, with doors opening up for pre-orders at around 8am. It’s dropped every single day of the week in the past – except weekends – so the next drop is anyone’s guess.

Best PS5 games

Even if you haven’t managed to buy a PS5 just yet, there’s no harm in a little a window shopping. You’re probably going to want to buy some games to go with your new machine either way. We’ve got a round-up of the best PS5 games for you to peruse.

In the bestselling Spider-Man: Miles Morales game (£44.99,, Peter Parker is replaced with his awkward teenage protégé, Miles Morales. A next-generation spin-off, Spider-Man: Miles Morales refines the original’s formula,” our reviewer said. “This is a streamlined adventure with a more focused story, far less busy work and an endearingly clumsy protagonist still getting to grips with his powers.”

Meanwhile, Demon’s Souls (£57.99, on PS5 is a showcase of what the new console is capable of. “The oppressive gothic architecture, yawning arches and festering dungeons of this cult classic look spectacular on the new hardware, while remaining faultlessly faithful to the aesthetic and vibe of the original game,” our tester said.

Could Currys PS5 stock drop this month?

We used to loathe Currys drops because they were simply too exclusive for their own good. Consoles were reserved exclusively for those who had signed up to the VIP pass draw system. The problem? It closed to new entrants in June but the retailer was still sending codes out to people all the way up until December.

Last month, the retailer stopped sending codes out altogether (probably because there was no one left on the email list to send codes to) and began dropping stock for the general public, the same as everyone else.

It had a mammoth seven restocks last month and one final code restock on 2 December. Weirdly, since its last restock on 28 December, no restocks at Currys have taken place. Let’s hope that changes today. It seemed to favour Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, so tomorrow might be more of a possibility.

When was the last John Lewis PS5 restock?

Next up: John Lewis & Partners! Though we should warn you that it’s not a retailer to rely on. Drops take place roughly once every one to two months. The most recent restock took place on Wednesday 29 December. And before that, it restocked on Wednesday 3 November.

To make matters worse, we rarely ever see drops at John Lewis last longer than five minutes so even if you do catch a drop, checking out with it in your basket is a totally different story.

The retailer does always drop at 7am however, so it’s reliable in that regard. Could it drop before February? The chances are pretty slim, but we’ll never say never.

How to get a PS5 in-store at Game

Getting a standalone PS5 console from Game is hard, but not impossible. All the regional Game stores have their own Twitter account and are compiled into this handy Twitter list.

Basically, whenever the PS5 is in stock at one of them, the account drops a tweet to let you all know. The latest restock tweet was from Game Salisbury, and that was 16 hours ago, so we’ve got no idea if stock is still available at that specific branch. Worth a look though.

Game PS5 stock could drop next week

There’s a good chance that the PS5 could drop at Game next week or the week after. The retailer updated its PS5 bundles page with new release dates of 18 February. This hints that another restock could happen in early February.

Drops at the retailer usually take place one to two weeks before the stated release date, so we could see a drop between either 1-3 February or 8-10 February next week. So there shouldn’t be long left to wait now.

Game has a huge number of bundles available but rarely sells the console online as a standalone purchase. You’ll have to go in-store if you want one of those.

PS Plus February 2022

Before we get started with the stock tracking, the free PS4 and PS5 games in February for PS Plus subscribers have been announced and, uh,they don’t look the best, if we’re honest.

The games didn’t leak ahead of time this month and perhaps that’s because the free ones that have been announced aren’t stellar. The PS5 game on offer is the themepark builder Planet Coaster: Console Edition, which weirdly has a PS4 release but this isn’t also free.

On the PS4 front, you’ve got the Borderlands-inspired Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep: A Wonderlands One-shot Adventure as well as mixed martial arts fighting gameEA Sports UFC 4 . Unsurprisingly, none of these games appear on our best PS4 games or PS5 games round-ups.

PS5 stock trackers, signing off

All right everyone, guess what? It’s been another day without a drop, cementing this month as one of the worst for restocks on record. But we’re not losing hope any time soon!
