March is shaping up to be a huge month for PS5 restocks in the UK, and it all begins at GAME.
The PS5 is tipped to be back in stock at GAME, Amazon, Argos, Currys and Very within the first week of March.
With such a huge week of restocks ahead, Express Online will be posting live PS5 stock alerts for interested customers.
We’ll keep this article updated with all the latest rumours, reports and live stock alerts as they come in, so keep checking back for more information.
If you really want to grab a PS5 in the next wave of restocks, then you should head to GAME, where the PlayStation 5 will reportedly be back in stock between 9am GMT and 12pm GMT on the morning of March 2.
“GAME release between 9 and 12 Tomorrow – Guest checkout with autofill saves 2nd queue,” reads a PS5 UK Stock – Instant Updates tweet. “Currys and Argos this week- add wishlist using app in prep for drop.”
Meanwhile, a separate PS5 Stock checker site believes that the GAME restock will take place at 9.45am GMT. The link below will take you to the GAME website, while the YouTube video embed will make a loud noise the second stock is available.
In addition to bots and scalpers, another reason why the console is so hard to come by is a lack of components.
Sony CFO Hiroki Totoki recently said that the manufacturing of PS5 consoles has taken a hit in the last few months. This is due to a lack of semiconductors and other components.
“It is difficult for us to increase production of the PS5 amid the shortage of semiconductors and other components,” Sony CFO Hiroki Totoki explained.
“We have not been able to fully meet the high level of demand from customers [but] we continue to do everything in our power to ship as many units as possible to customers who are waiting for a PS5.”
Fingers crossed Sony rectifies the problem sooner rather than later, especially with some of the games expected to drop later in 2021.
