Al die jongste nuus oor PS5-konsole hervoorraad by kleinhandelaars regoor die VK, including Argos, Smiete, Game and John Lewis
It has now been over a year since Sony’s latest console, the PlayStation 5 (PS5), first arrived in the UK. 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. New stock is still tricky to find and, when it does appear, die PS5 sells out quickly, beide aanlyn en in die winkel.
The situation improved though, and we saw restocks at Baie, AAN, Argos, Asda, Littlewoods, PS Direct en Spel. Let’s just hope the momentum continues through December as we fly towards Christmas. We’ve already seen restocks at Smyths Toys, Kerrie, PlayStation Direct en ShopTo.
As u nog steeds op soek is na 'n PS5, jy het op die regte plek gekom. Our liveblog is on hand to give you the latest insight on restocks from all major UK retailers, beide aanlyn en in die winkel, sowel as die verskaffing van besonderhede oor gerugte, plus the latest PS5 speletjies en bykomstighede om op te knap.

The PS5 has sold out at PlayStation Direct
As a reminder, you can only get an access code if you are a BT Broadband customer, so maybe ask a pal if they can lend you their code through the BT portal.
PS Direct PS5 queue is now live
Die PlayStation Direct queue is now live. What’s everyone’s estimated wait time? Ours is more than an hour… We hope that some of you got a better queue position than us.
Good luck, and remember to have your PSN credentials and card details at hand so that you can quickly buy the console when you get through the queue.
There are no digital edition consoles available this time round, so you’ll need to cough up extra for the disc edition.
The PS5 is in stock at PS Direct
Die PS5 is nou in voorraad teen PlayStation Direct. There is a waiting room at the moment, so you’ve still got time to get in there before the buying gets started.
Gelukkig, it’s not first come first serve like a lot of other retailers. You get given a random unique ID once the countdown ends, meaning you don’t know what position in the queue you’ll be in when the consoles drop. Take that, scalpers!
Make sure to have your PSN credentials at hand or you won’t be able to buy the console.
The PS5 is now in stock at BT
Die PS5 is nou in voorraad teen BT!
Soos gewoonlik, you’ll need an access code to buy the console. If you’re a BT Broadband customer, this can be retrieved via this link. The retailer sells a range of different bundles, but it seems like the only one available right now is the disc edition console with a dualsense controller and a PS Plus 12-month subscription for £558.98.
How does the PlayStation Direct PS5 drop work?
Unlike other retailers, you don’t get priority access by being the first person to click the link to go to the PlayStation Direct page. A waiting room opens up before stock goes live.
After the timer finishes ticking down in the waiting room, you’ll be given a random position in the actual queue to buy the console, so scalping bots won’t have the upper-hand here. Win!
BT PS5 stock is also set to go live this morning
BT is also set to drop stock of the PS5 this morning, with BT Broadband customers getting priority access to buy the console.
You will need an access code, but if you have a BT TV or BT Sports subscription, you should be able to get one via this link. If you managed to secure an access code from a previous drop, then this should also work. We’ll let you know once stock goes live.
Best PS5 accessory bundles
When the PlayStation Direct store opens up for orders, you’ll be able to have your pick from a bunch of different bundle options with various different PS5 accessories.
These include everything from extra controllers to media remotes to pulse 3D wireless headsets. Best part? They all appear on our round-up of the best PS5 accessories, which you can read below.
From controllers to memberships, these are the best PS5 accessories to enhance your game playing, from Amazon, Sony, Nacon and more
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 think twice about buying a PS5 from the retailer.
You might make a small profit selling your PS5 to CeX – who buys it for £475, but you’ll certainly lose a lot of money if you actually want to purchase the console.
CeX is currently selling the PS5 for £695 – that’s more than some of the most expensive bundles at Game. Our suggestion? Stick to the major retailers and get a new PS5 with a bundle for the same price.
Sony is reportedly developing an Xbox Game Pass competitor
In other news this morning, a Bloombergverslag doen suggests that Sony is gearing up to launch its own version of Xbox’s Game Pass, codenamed Spartacus.
According to the report, Sony will merge PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now – the cloud gaming service – but keep the PS Plus branding, and the most expensive tier would give gamers access to PS1, PS2, PS3, and PSP games. It’s something to look forward to for sure, especially for fans of those retro Tomb Raider speletjies.
