Update 29 June: The PS5 is in stock at Argus, Look and, ShopTo, AO, Curries and the BT Shop for BT Broadband customers. The PS5 could restock at Game this week. Read on for more information.
Since launching in 2020, the PlayStation 5 has been seriously difficult to get hold of. Supply chain issues stemming from the global pandemic have brought production of Sony’s latest games console to a near-standstill.
Thankfully, the situation has improved in recent months. The PS5 was pretty much in stock throughout the entire month of May, with Game leading the charge. We had nearly 108 restocks across the month – the most we’ve ever seen since Sony released the console. And as we approach the end of June, the month has so far continued this momentum, with Game, EE and the BT Shop, plus several independent retailers like The Game Collection, being in stock for much of the last few weeks.
Saying that, buying a console on its own is still more difficult than picking up a bundle, with standalone consoles selling out in the blink of an eye, while digital consoles (bundles included) have been non-existent. But we’re here to help, whether you’re after a bundle or the standalone PS5 disc and PS5 digital edition consoles.
Still hunting down the elusive PlayStation 5? Our goal is to secure you a next-gen machine, as well as provide you with the details on the best games and accessories to nab alongside your new console, plus the latest game reviews.

Has Argos sold out again already?
Argos had a PS5 restock earlier today, but it now looks like the £499.99 disc edition bundle with Horizon Forbidden West has already sold out in some locations. As we have said many times before, the way Argos restocks PS5 consoles makes it tricky to say if stock is really available or not. We saw consoles available for collection and delivery for two postcodes earlier, but now they are both showing as out-of-stock.
Some readers might still be able to see consoles available to them, while others will be in the same situation we are. As such, we can only say that PS5 consoles appear to be available at Argos, but stock levels vary by geographical location.

When will Smyths Toys have a PS5 restock?
There is currently no PS5 stock available on the Smyth’s Toys website, but it says more consoles should be coming in July. This applies to the PS5 disc edition on its own, as well as a handful of disc edition bundles. The cheaper PS5 digital edition hasn’t been available at Smyths Toys for quite some time, and the website only says vaguely that more stock will arrive at some point in 2022.

Will Game have a PS5 restock soon?
Game has had more PS5 restocks in recent weeks than any other retailer. The last bunch of consoles landed on Game’s website on Monday 12 June, and the two previous to this also arrived on Mondays.
Game also sometimes restocks its website on a Wednesday, but restocks any later in the week are very rare, with the last Thursday restock happening on 28 April, and the last Friday restock being 18 February.
As such, as either expect to see a PS5 restock from Game today, or early next week, potentially on Monday 4 July.

How to get a PS5 voucher code from BT
BT is giving its customers a helping hand when it comes to securing a PS5. Instead of throwing open the virtual doors and dealing with a stampede like other retailers, BT sends out unique voucher codes to its customers.
If you are a BT TV customer, for example, or subscribe to BT Sport, you can apply to receive a PS5 voucher code. These are emailed out sporadically and can be used to access a PS5 next time the BT store has a restock. You still have to pay the regular price, of course, but this system is a neat way of rewarding BT customers and giving them a better chance of securing a console.
