PS5 restocking: Argos and Amazon UK reportedly offer the latest drop in PlayStation 5 stocks in June | Games | Entertainment
June could end with the release of thousands more PlayStation 5 consoles for purchase in the UK.
As of yet, nothing big is expected to be announced over the weekend, meaning stock trackers can likely take a break from looking for replenishment between June 26-27.
However, next week is expected to include at least one major drop from a major retailer, with a PS5 restocking expected from Argos and Amazon UK.
There have been several hosted in June from Currys, Argos, GAME, Smyths and GameByte, and it could be the last of the month.
From what has been shared by stock trackers so far, the latest drops will be between June 28 and June 30.
Monday declines are rare, making it more likely that PS5 stocks will drop on Tuesday, June 29.
However, as with all of these predictions, players will need to take it with a pinch of salt until we know more.
The latest news on the subject comes from PS5 Stock Alert UK on Twitter, with the account revealing that 10,000 consoles will arrive from Argos in the next few days.
The full message reads: “As we predicted a month ago, Argos has received 10,000 units of the PlayStation 5 Disc Edition.
“Distribution to hubs and stores has started nationwide. Expect a drop this week. No preview of the digital edition.
The drop in stocks of Argos PS5 is expected to occur very early in the morning, and gamers are warned to be prepared to try and buy a console between 1 a.m. BST and 4 a.m. BST.
During this time, Amazon UK typically abandons stocks between 8am BST and 11am BST on selected dates.
Amazon’s inventory drop dates come from PS5 Instant, another tracking account with a good track record.
It’s unclear why Sony favors disc publishing over the digital PS5, but it seems to be related to meeting demand for the most demanded product.
Knowing when a PS5 restock is happening can be vital, but it’s also worth knowing how each retailer handles their shipments.
And here are some examples of the best way to try and buy a PlayStation 5 console from major UK retailers:
AMAZON UNITED KINGDOM:
ARGOS: Argos website has been known to crash and be unable to complete purchases when site traffic is high. Stock trackers suggest using the Argos mobile app and keeping an eye on local store listings. Argos is expected to receive more stock by the end of 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 get stuck when finalizing a purchase.
