All the latest news on PS5 console restocks at retailers across the UK, including Argos, Game and Smyths Toys.
It is now over a year since the Sony console arrived in the UK, aan 19 November 2020. But supply problems and a worldwide shortage of semiconductors sparked by the pandemic have caused the production of Sony’s new game console to slow to a crawl. New stock is still hard to find, and when it does appear the PS5 sells out quickly, both in-store and online.

The situation has since improved though, and we have seen recent restocks at Baie, AAN, Argos, Asda and Littlewoods, plus a drop at Sony’s new PS Direct online store. There have also been several more restocks at Spel. We just hope this momentum can continue as we head towards Swart Vrydag and the Christmas shopping season.

Read our review of the new Nintendo Switch OLED
If handheld gaming is more your thing then check out our review of the new Nintendo Switch OLED. The console features an OLED display for the first time, which is larger than before and produces punchier colours and deeper blacks. There’s also a redesigned kickstand and double the internal storage of its predecessor.
Ons resensent het gesê of the £309.99 console: “The larger display is fantastic and playing games in handheld mode is an absolute joy. The kickstand feels so solid and makes us never want to look at that little toggle on the back of the original Switch ever again…this is absolutely the best version of the console yet.”
Box has launched a PS5 deal
Box seems to have a Sony Playstation 5 Console, Pulse Wireless Headset and Thrustmaster Hotas 4 bundle available now – all for £599!
Clicking the link, we saw the option to add it to a basket – but unfortunately it was replaced by a “request stock alert” button in a matter of seconds.

The best 4K TV for your new PS5
While we wait for the next PS5 restock, it’s time to think about upgrading your television. The PS5 outputs video at 4K resolution and can even handle games running at 120 rame per sekonde. That’s something not all TVs can manage, so if you want to see your new console running at its best, a new TV could be worthwhile.
We’ve rounded up nine of the best 4K TVs available right now, from manufacturers including Samsung, LG, Sony and Panasonic, onder andere. And the great news is you don’t need to spend a fortune to get a great 4K television – prices of our favourites start at under £400.
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.
Can you play PS4 games on PS5?
Jy kan seker! Die oorweldigende meerderheid van die PS4-speletjies wat jy besit, is op die PS5 speelbaar. Jy sal enige speletjies wat jy deur die PlayStation-winkel gekoop het op jou PS4 kan aflaai en dit op die volgende generasie-konsole kan speel.
As jy die skyfuitgawe van die PS5 het, jy sal ook jou PS4-skyfies daarin kan plaas en dit so speel, ook. Duidelik, omdat daar geen fisiese skyfgleuf op die digitale uitgawe van die konsole is nie, jy sal nie enige PS4-skywe wat jy besit kan speel nie. We’ve compiled together a list of our favourite PS4 speletjies, en die meeste van hulle het in prys gedaal sedert die PS5 uitgekom het.
Best PS5 games
We’ve got a round-up of the best PS5 games for you to peruse – when you get one!
In the bestselling Spinnekop man: Miles Morales spel (£ 44,99, Currys.co.uk), Peter Parker is replaced with his awkward teenage protégé, Miles Morales. A next-generation spin-off, Spinnekop man: Miles Morales refines the original’s formula,”Het ons resensent gesê. “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.”
Intussen, Demon’s Souls (£57.99, Currys.co.uk) 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,”Het ons toetser gesê.
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.
Maar, terwyl die Xbox-reeks 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.
Goeie more, PS5 jagters!
