PS5 UK stock LIVE – GAME and Argos both have Playstation consoles in stock NOW… here's how to get yours

A NEW WEEK, and new PS5 drops are happening all over the place – with gamers still eager to get their hands on a console.

This looks like it could be Playstation fans' lucky week, with plenty of retailers planning to drop stock.

GAME stocked dropped at 9.30am this morning with gamers racing online to bag themselves a console.

And earlier this morning Argos dropped new batches of consoles this morning, although the ease of getting one seems to be different in various parts of the UK – with some customers saying they've not seen new stock yet at all.

Amazon are set to drop a whopping 8,000 consoles this weekend, compared to their usual supply of 5,000.

PS5UPDATEUK posted on Twitter: “Amazon is expecting around 8K stock to be delivered this weekend.

“There may be more shipment deliveries made that I don’t know other than this.

“8K might sound small to you, but Amazon have always released under 5K stock each restock, so this shows an increase in supply.”

And there are rumours from stock tracking sites claiming consoles will land at GAME, Very and John Lewis in the next seven days too – although, as always, nothing is guaranteed.

The restock news comes as Currys made a dramatic change to way customers can buy PS5s, introducing a new "raffle" system.

The tech retailer is planning to scrap the queue system it and many other websites have previously used as it "unfairly" rewards those with stronger internet connections and with time to sit online.

Now Currys is allowing customers to register for a "priority pass" which enters them into a raffle which in turn gives them a special code that's valid for 72 hours and allows them to make a PS5 purchase.
