UPDATE 4: PS5 stock is coming to network provider EE in the coming days.

According to EE, PlayStation 5 consoles will be available to purchase from March 30.

“EE PS5 DROP ONCOMING,” reads a PlayStation Stock tweet. “EE will be releasing PS5 stock on the 30th March to existing EE customers!

“Not the ideal drop but that’s what they plan to do.”

UPDATE 3: GAME and Argos have both dropped PS5 stock on the same day (March 24).

While GAME is now out of stock, customers are encouraged to keep checking back in case of second waves.

“GAME NOW OUT OF STOCK! If you’re still in queue stay there in case they drop a second wave including cancelled orders then you will be straight in front of queue!”

Argos, meanwhile, has been selling PS5 consoles on a regional basis. It’s worth checking your local store for possible restocks.

UPDATE 2: The GAME PlayStation 5 stock drop is yet to take place, which means it’s likely to have been pushed back to tomorrow (March 24).

As a reminder, GAME recently confirmed that PlayStation 5 consoles would go on sale this week. This was followed by a big refresh on the GAME PlayStation 5 bundles page.

While it’s possible PS5 consoles could still go on sale this afternoon, the company typically puts consoles on sale between 9-11am GMT.

UPDATE: UK retailer GAME has updated its PS5 store page with lots of new bundles.

A sure sign that stock is about to drop, GAME bundles include the base console with additional controllers, PlayStation Plus subscriptions and games such as Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

As a reminder, customers are generally said to have improved odds of successfully purchasing a console when selecting one of the bigger bundles.

The GAME PS5 stock drop is tipped to take place today (March 23) from any point between 9-11 GMT.

It all begins with a major PS5 restock at GAME, which will have around 20,000 units up for grabs in the coming days.

GAME stock drops typically take place between 9am and 11am in the morning on either Tuesday or Wednesday. Needless to say, Express Online will keep this story updated with the latest stock information, so keep checking back for exact dates and times.

The GAME stock drops were confirmed by various UK PS5 stock checker sites, alongside news on the quantity of units on sale.

“GAME have fresh bundles prepared and will be dropping this week, possibly tomorrow or Wednesday as they usually do on Tuesday or Wednesday from 9am!” reads one stock alert tweet.

“GAME confirmed they’re releasing stock this week 9-11am. 20k units – 58.2% Disc and 41.8% Digital this time around.”

The reports on the Argos restocks are a little harder to pin down. PS5 consoles have arrived at Argos stores across the country, so stock drops are imminent.

“First news for the week ahead. Argos has distributed its PS5 Disc Editions to most of its stores in the UK,” reads a stock alert tweet.

“There is no information about PS5 Digital Editions yet. There is currently no date for when they plan to release, but we should know soon.”

A separate PS5 stock checker account claims that the consoles will be available towards the end of the week, or possibly early next week.

“Argos aims to release end of this week, however good chance they’ll miss and release early next week.”

There’s also been some development at Currys, which has altered the way it distributes PlayStation 5 stock.

The UK retailer is operating a lottery-style system, where customers sign up for the chance to buy a PS5.

Customers have now been notified by email whether or not they’ve been successful in buying from Currys.

Some customers have received emails saying better luck next time, while others have been reserved a console as part of the VIP draw.

Finally, Amazon customers will have to wait just a little bit longer for the next big stock drop.

Amazon UK has been extremely spotty when it comes to PS5 stock drops, making them one of the harder retailers to predict.

Based on the latest reports, Amazon will restock the device next week, so from March 30 onwards.
