PS5 Launch – The Game Has No Limits
Update: Argos PS5 stock is live. Read on for more information.
The PS5 console was released over six months ago, but no one could have predicted how difficult it would be to get their hands on the device.
Replenishment issues have plagued Sony since the initial reveal, and despite stores reopening in April in the UK as lockdowns lift, it’s still nearly impossible to secure a console in-store (and still not easy online. ).
In fact, it’s gotten so hard for people to get their hands on a PS5 that it spawned a whole Twitter community of stock trackers, as well as a 24,500-strong Redditor community all trying to grab it. console before it sells again.
But, this is not all bad news; the resupply landscape has started to improve in recent weeks. Last month we took advantage of some of the biggest PS5 drops to date as all major retailers released consoles, including a 20,000-person drop from Game. June is shaping up to be a similar month, and yesterday was a great day for restocking, with Game, AO and Smyths Toys all delighting some lucky customers.

The PS5 is still down on the Argos site
Argos continues to decline region by region. We just saw Manchester go live and we think the drop in London is over. If you’re still in the market for a PS5 console, keep trying – your location could be next! We’ll let you know if the console is out of stock more generally, but it’s a little difficult to keep up with every location with such a selective geographic drop.

Will there be a PS5 restocking on Amazon Prime Day?
As the Argos PS5 restocking progresses, declining region by region, we anticipate any potential drop next week. As we get closer and closer to Amazon Prime Day, the chances of the retailer having a Prime Day PS5 restock become more and more likely.
Yesterday, Amazon created a product page for a PS5 Pack with Ratchet & Clank. We haven’t been able to glean any clues as to its cost yet, but we expect it to be roughly the same as Game – £ 519.98.
Amazon never had a PS5 restock on a Friday, which leads us to believe the pack might drop during the Prime Day shopping event as it sets the console page ready for a launch, we don’t think it will. will be on sale – no luck at all – but it’s great to think that this could be part of the Prime Day celebrations.

Customers rush to local Argos stores to buy a PS5
Talk about dedication to the cause. As soon as people see their local store going green on the Argos site, some customers rush out of their homes to buy it. If you go to the store you don’t have to order online, but it’s a risky business. It pays off if you are successful.
Keep trying online as reports keep pouring in from people securing the Rift apart package of Argos‘as different regions continue to go green.

Customers say they are not seeing their local Argos stores go green
While some people have been successful in getting a PS5 for the click and pickup at Argos, others are concerned that their local store’s inventory may have come in and then quickly left. The in-store collection for many is still out of stock, so either their region hasn’t gone down yet or the console is, as it says, out of stock. We’ll keep checking for updates and let you know if anything changes. The plan costs £ 509.99 (Argos.fr).
