PS5 stock could become available to buy once again at GAME this week with a restock allegedly dropping on Christmas Eve. According to the rumour mill, GAME could be getting a PS5 restock very shortly – with a whole bunch of PS5 bundles listed on the retailer’s website as available to pre-order on December 24. This was highlighted by the PS5 UK Stock News Twitter, who said the GAME website previously said pre-orders would be opening last week before changing the listed date to December 24.

On December 15 the @PS5UKNews Twitter account posted: “For those questioning the GAME stock drop that was said to be today on their website, it has been changed for a bit now until the 24/12/2020.”

While over the weekend the account also added: “Will also be keeping you all updated on the potential #GAME stock that is supposed to be on the 24/12/2020 which I previously had tweeted about. It looks promising for a late Christmas present.”

It’s important to point out that GAME hasn’t officially confirmed via their social channels that more PS5 stock will become available to buy this week.

It remains to be seen whether PS5 stock will become available to buy on December 24 or not.
