The PS5 proper – with a disc tray and a £449.99 price tag – is listed as coming back into stock in May 2021.
But the PS5 Digital Edition – with no disc tray and cheaper at £359.99 – is “expecting in stock April 2021”.
It’s currently April 20, which means there are 10 days left for the stock to appear.
That means gamers should be checking back at Smyths Toys regularly over the next two weeks for new stock.
It’s unclear exactly when the stock will be back on the website.

It’s worth checking at midnight, and then early in the morning between 7am and 9am, as well as noon – as these are common re-stocking times for retailers.
That might sound like a lot of effort, but the PS5 is in such high demand that some beleaguered gamers will go to any length to secure one.
The PS5 has been largely sold out since it launched in November 2020.
PlayStation boss Jim Ryan recently admitted that it would be much easier to get a PS5 from July onwards.
The full PS5 costs £449/$499, while a Digital Edition without a disc tray is priced at £359/$399.
They're up against the Xbox Series X (£449) and Xbox Series S (£249), which hit shelves worldwide November 10.
All four consoles have been sold out around the world, with stock seesawing in and out of availability over the past few weeks.
The PS5 launched with major exclusive games like Spider-Man Miles Morales and a revamped version of Dark Souls for players to enjoy.
Xbox gamers, on the other hand, have a new Halo title to look forward to later this year.
