Here’s where you can buy the PS5 today

UPDATE: The PS5 is now in stock at AO, Very, EE, the BT Shop, Currys and John Lewis & Partners. There are also bundles available at Studio. Read on for more information.

It’s been a year and a half since the PS5 was first released, and a year since we started officially tracking PS5 restocks, yet we’re all still here, clinging on to the dream of owning one of the elusive consoles.

While you still can’t reliably buy a PS5 in-store, the situation has massively improved online in recent weeks, and it has led to a nice uplift in restocks throughout the month of May, leading us to believe that the stock shortage may (temporarily?) be over.

This week, we’ve seen one of the biggest drops on record, with eight retailers restocking the console, including the BT ShopCurrysJohn Lewis & PartnersScanAsdaVery and Studio. Buying a console on its own is more difficult than picking up a bundle, with standalone consoles selling out in the blink of an eye.

Still hunting down the elusive PS5 console? Our liveblog is here to get you one of Sony’s next-gen consoles, as well as provide you with the details on the best games and accessories to grab alongside your new machine, plus the latest game reviews. If you want to find out which online retailers will be the first to restock, then keep scrolling to receive updates as they happen.

‘Horizon Forbidden West’ review

You may have noticed, but pretty much every major Playstation 5 drop has included a copy of Horizon Forbidden West. Chances are if you are on the market for the console, you’ll be getting a copy to go along with it.

But is Horizon Forbidden West any good? In a single word: Yes.

Do you want us to elaborate? We’re glad you asked. In our review, we said: “In Horizon Forbidden West, Guerilla Games has developed its post-apocalyptic marriage of technology and nature to craft a beautifully realised vision of a world desperate for rebirth.

The story will take new players to unexpected and breathtaking places, and fans of Horizon Zero Dawn will have plenty of their questions answered.

While Horizon Forbidden West takes great leaps in its visual and story presentation, it stays the path with its gameplay, making small but notable additions that improve the experience.”

Read our full review to find out more about the game before you pick up a copy with your new console.

‘Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga’ review

Are you looking forward to watching the new Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney+? Then we have just the game recommendation for you.

Featuring a slightly blockier take on Ewan McGregor’s performance in episodes 1-3, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga follows all three of the mainline Star Wars trilogies. Not just the originals, but the sequels and the prequels too.

In our review of the game, we said “The Skywalker Saga is a fitting tribute to the most enduring film franchise of the last three generations. Fans of both properties will enjoy it, especially those young enough to have missed the first few instalments. For longtime fans of Lego Star Wars, there’s enough of an improvement to the tried and tested formula to warrant some intrigue, if only to see how far the series has come along.”

Read our full review to find out more.

When is PS VR2 released?

Sony has a next-generation virtual reality headset on the way, designed to work exclusively with the PS5 and called the PlayStation VR2.

Although Sony announced it was working on the headset last year, it only confirmed the product name on 4 January, at the annual CES technology show in Las Vegas.

We suspect Sony will reveal the headset in person, and show off how it works, at the Summer Game Fest which will be taking place this year.

Sony has already revealed what the new headset will look like, complete with updated specs. We also know that Sony plans to launch 20 games for the new hardware upon its imminent release. Read our full guide on the upcoming PS VR2 headset and all the games it’s expected to release.

God of War was a critically acclaimed reboot of the original franchise from Santa Monica Studios and is widely considered to be one of the best games on the PS4 so fans have been eagerly waiting to find out what happens in the next installment afterGod of War left the series on something of a cliff hanger.

In this highly anticipated sequel, a now teenaged Atreus seeks answers on how to prevent Ragnarök from happening with his father’s help. While searching for these answers, Kratos and Atreus set out to meet the Norse god of war, Týr, who was previously believed to be dead.

Some new information has indicated that God of War: Ragnarök is still expected to come out in 2022, despite rumours of its delayed release. Find out more in our guide to the upcoming sequel.

When will Amazon stock the PS5 next?

Amazon is one of our favourite retailers when it comes to PS5 restocks. When consoles become available, Amazon usually still sells the standalone console, while other retailers are now starting to opt for bundles in their drops.

But there are some caveats, being the behemoth that it is, Amazon PS5 restocks are incredibly popular, as most console hunters will have the consoles on their wish list , meaning they’re notified as soon as stock goes live on the website. In short, they sell out fast. But when are we likely to see another drop from them?

The last restock we saw from them was 11 May 2022 and for the most part, we usually expect them to drop at least once a month. As May draws to a close, we expect to see at least one drop taking place in the middle of June, so keep an eye out for it and make sure you add the PS5 to your wishlist to get notified.

The bundles from Game have since sold out but there are still plenty of cheaper bundles at the other retailers. We’ll break down which ones to look for shortly.
