PS5 PlayStation Direct, GAME, Argos, Amazon, John Lewis, Currys, ShopTo restock ALERTS


    Black Friday may be coming up fast, but don’t expect any discounts on PlayStation 5 consoles. Despite launching over a year ago, the PS5 is still extremely hard to come by. Still, while the PlayStation 5 won’t be headlining any Black Friday sales, there’s a good chance the console will be restocked in the UK this week. It all begins with a double PlayStation Direct stock drop, which are available to customers with an email invite. The first PlayStation Direct restock has already taken place, but the second is expected to drop between 8-10am GMT on November 23. To stand a chance of getting an invite, simply visit the PlayStation website and sign into your account. Once logged in, click notifications, select ‘receive email notifications’ and then save. In addition to PlayStation Direct, PS5 customers should also keep an eye on GAME, Amazon, Argos, Very, ShopTo and Currys. Express Online will keep this article updated with all of the latest stock drops. Links to PS5 retail sites can be seen below.

    If you are hoping to pick up a PS5 this week, then the following shopping tips should help.

    PlayStation 5 general shopping tips…

    • Login if you already have an account with the retailer.

    • Use multiple devices wherever possible – desktop browser, laptop, tablet, smartphone.

    • If the retailer has a dedicated app, download and use the app for purchasing a PS5.

    • Sign up for retailer stock alerts where possible. Sites like ShopTo allow users to register interest.

    • Follow stock checker accounts and websites, including PS5 UK Stock and Express Gaming.

    PlayStation 5 shopping tips when buying from GAME…

    • Get familiar with the bundles, so you know which one to target first: Obscure bundles are easier to get, standalones almost impossible. [GAME]

    • When alerted, click through to your first bundle of choice as quickly as possible, this will get you into the queue. [GAME] 

    • If it says it’s failed when trying to checkout, it means that bundle is now OOS. So go back to the bundles and pick another one. [GAME]

    • Checking out too much too quickly will give you a 30-60 second timeout, so don’t rush it. If this happens, just wait a bit then try again. [GAME]

    As for Black Friday deals, PS5 customers can make big savings on a selection of games.

    Over on the PlayStation Store, fans can purchase PS5 games like Deathloop and Demon’s Souls at discounted prices.

    Available for just £29.99, Deathloop is one of the best PS5 games of the year, earning a massive 88% score on Metacritic.

    “In Deathloop, two rival assassins are trapped in a mysterious timeloop on the island of Blackreef, doomed to repeat the same day for eternity.

    “As Colt, the only chance for escape is to end the cycle by assassinating eight key targets before the day resets. Learn from each cycle – try new paths, gather intel, and find new weapons and abilities. Do whatever it takes to break the loop.”
