The next Argos PS5 stock update is not expected to arrive today, with Amazon UK and ASDA reportedly offering the next possible drops in the UK.
There had been hopes of a big PlayStation 5 shipment arriving from Argos this morning, with reliable stock tracker accounts providing the latest information.
The PS5 Stock Alert UK Twitter account posted this message earlier this week, telling gamers:
“Argos stock count is now known to us, around 3-10K stock with the minimum and maximum stock margins. The product code is 941/8136 once it drops, as it’s clearly not on the app or site yet. Drop expected June 15th (1-5am).
“It’ll only be the bundle in the image on the main tweet above. The bundle price will be £509.99 without delivery cost. Standalone disc and digital editions (non-bundle) is expected to arrive in the next week or two. We’ll keep you updated on that.”
However, since this message was first shared, more information has been released that suggests Amazon UK could be the next major retailer drop in the UK.
“The drop is getting very unlikely at this point. We have no idea why it did not happen yet, as the source and information was strong across the whole restock scene, not just us.
“Time to get some sleep for a potential Amazon drop in the morning after 8am.”
As mentioned above, several stock tracker accounts had linked Argos to a major PS5 restock today, with the PS5 Instant Twitter account telling fans earlier this week.
“ASDA & ShopTo still on track for #PS5Restock this week! 8am – Noon
“Argos #PS5Stock MAY be released as early as tonight! PS5 release is 15th onwards (1-4am).”
However, since this message was shared, they have also posted new information, suggesting that the Argos PS5 restock will happen between June 16 and June 24.
“Argos PS5 restock will go ahead between 16-24th as previously stated. They have received PS5 stock including Ratchet & Clank PS5 bundles, so may be worth holding off purchasing the game.”
It’s unclear what might have caused the PS5 stock date change but it does highlight how dates and times can be altered at the last minute.
This highlights how all PS5 stock predictions need to be taken with a pinch of salt, even if they are shared by the most reliable accounts out there.
While an Argos PS5 stock drop is now unlikely to happen today, something new from Amazon UK is still possible.
Gamers tracking Amazon news will want to be logged in by 8am BST to their account to see if anything does happen.
Other PS5 stock drops could be coming from a number of UK retailers in June, including the following:
- Amazon UK: June 14-17
- Argos: June 16 – 24
- ASDA: June 15-17
- GAME: June 15-17
- ShopTo: June 14-18
And here are a few examples of how best to try and buy a PlayStation 5 console from leading UK retailers:
AMAZON UK: Amazon UK runs better under strain but still comes with a few kinks worth mentioning. Having an account set up with your card details is a good start, and gamers should also try adding a console to their wishlist before checking out. More stock is expected before June 10.
ARGOS: The Argos website is notorious for crashing and being unable to complete purchases when site traffic is high. Stock trackers suggest using the mobile Argos app and keeping an eye on local store listings. Argos is not expected to receive any more stock until later in June.
GAME: GAME is a UK retailer that offers the most regular stock updates for PS5 consoles. However, console hunters have been warned to use Guest Checkout, as this option is less likely to crash when completing a purchase. GAME is expected to restock the PlayStation 5 in the next seven days.
