A recap of today’s PS5 restock events
Whew, what a day. It’s been complete to the brim with unexpected restocks. Firstly, Amazon! After going a whole six weeks without restocking, we saw the retailer drop the PS5 last week. We weren’t expecting another drop until next week at the earliest, but what do you know – we got one!

Big discounts on PS5 games right now
It’s blockbuster season on the PlayStation Store, meaning discounts on the console’s best game franchises. Most of the games don’t look to be “new” per se, but they are all subjectively exquisite.

It costs £46.79 on the PS5 right now – that’s a 22 per cent reduction.

Pop into your local Game store
Struggled to get a PS5 from Game’s website this morning? We’d recommend popping into your local store and asking to be put on the retailer’s pre-order waiting list. Each store runs a waiting list system, in which it designates a set number of PS5s to those who are on it per month.
We’ve also heard reports of some disc and digital edition consoles just chilling in the back room, so if you’re very lucky, you could be walking out of the shop with a PS5 tucked underneath your arm.

Need an Xbox series X?
Managed to bag a PS5 from Game today? If you’re also looking for the Xbox series X, we’d recommend heading over to our Xbox live stock tracking blog, where we do exactly the same thing over there – ie, try and help you get a console.
While the series X doesn’t seem to be in stock as frequently as the PS5, this month has been pretty kind to the console. Xbox drops happen pretty unexpectedly and they sell out within minutes, so you’ll need to follow the blog if you want to be on top of any restocks.
