Today’s PS5 restock updates from AO, Smyths & Tesco after GAME and Very sell out of Playstations | #firefox | #chrome | #microsoftedge

PS5 consoles are now out of stock at GAME and Very.

Playstation fans flocked to the website to pick-up bundles after stock trackers revealed new bundles had arrived as predicted.

But as of 3.30pm, both sites appeared to have totally run out.

It comes as the MUCH sought-after consoles are expected to drop at AO, John Lewis, Currys, Amazon and more over the coming days.

A huge Playstation 5 restock has long been predicted and it seems like today is the day we could finally see consoles on the shelves.

The PS5 was released six months ago to critical acclaim but for millions of gamers it has proven almost impossible to get hold of.

Thanks to parts shortages, coronavirus-related delays and then, incredibly, a giant container ship blocking the Suez canal and holding up deliveries, supplies to the UK has been incredibly limited.

Read our PS5 live blog below for the very latest updates….

  • GAME SOLD OUT?

    With Game’s PS5 page going down, it seems as though the popular console has now sold out or there has been too much demand.

    Considering there were 20,000 Playstation’s up for sale in May, this drop proved just how much smaller it was, having lasted about an hour before selling out.

    Some of those who ordered their console in May are still waiting for their console to be shipped. It’s possible the backlog will be cleared ahead of today’s release.

  • WHERE CAN YOU PURCHASE A PS5?

    With the PS5 releasing 6 months ago, it has been no secret how hard getting your hands on a console has been.

    Fast forward to now, we have seen websites crash and ‘waiting rooms’ being timed out, with many still unable to get their hands on the popular gaming device.

    Online retailers selling the PS5 are:

    Amazon, AO, Game, Argos, ShopTo, VERY, John Lewis, ASDA, Curries PC World, Tesco, BT, EE and Box.co.uk.

    It allows users to view online content quickly and can provide things like video, imagery and cloud security.

    Lots of website rely on Fastly’s services for their websites to function.

    The likes of Amazon, Reddit, Spotify, AirBnB and even the NHS website all use Fastly.

    Fastly has said it’s implemented a fix for all affected websites.

  • EXPLAINED: BATTLEFIELD 6 SUPPORTED PLATFORMS

    EA has already confirmed that Battlefield will be available on a host of platforms.

    For PlayStation fans, you’ll be able to play on both PS4 and PS5.

    And the game is coming to Xbox One, as well as the newer Xbox Series X and Series S models.

    It’s also very likely that we’ll see a PC release, given that Battlefield 5 was available on Windows.

    There’s no word on a Nintendo Switch launch sadly – but that was also true for Battlefield 5.

  • PLAYSTATION RELEASE NEW SYSTEM UPDATE AHEAD OF TODAY’S SURGE IN SALES

    THE software update 21.01-03.20.00 is set to improve system performance, which includes an update to the DualSense controller, alongside several other fixes.

    The controller update fixes a battery indicator bug which had resulted in the battery icon constantly blinking (indicating low battery) even though the controller wasn’t low on charge.

    The update also solves a PS5 screen reader issue, improvements when moving games from USB to console as well as hidden games problems.

    Other updates include:

    • Improved system performance
    • DualSense wireless controller device software update
    • resolved restricted functionality issues
    • Made progress of copying games from USB so they are more stable in the storage game library
  • BATTLEFIELD 6 RELEASE DATE – WHEN IS IT OUT?

    Battlefield 6 doesn’t have a public release date, so we’re still in the dark to some degree.

    But EA financial documents suggest that the game is due to come out in the final three months of 2021.

    That means we should expect Battlefield 6’s release date to fall at some point between October and December.

    We’d suspect that October and November are more likely, to give sufficient run-up to Christmas.

    For context, Battlefield 5 launched on November 20, 2018. And Battlefield 4 was out on October 29, 2013.

  • JOHN LEWIS PS5 RESTOCK MAY COME NEXT WEEK

  • A TRICK TO SECURE CONSOLES WHEN AO.COM RESTOCK PS5

    There’s a little trick to getting the PS5 from AO.co.uk, discovered in previous drops by the @PS5StockAlertUK Twitter account.

    It takes a little bit of effort, but many people have seen success using it when the console is live but showing “out of stock”.

    This will only work when the PS5 product page is live on AO and you’ll need to be using Google Chrome.

    • When the PS5 product page is live, copy the PS5’s product ID and save it somewhere safe.
    • Navigate to a random item on AO’s website.
    • Right-click on the ‘Buy now’ button on the random item. In the element inspector, replace the product’s ID with the PS5’s product ID.
    • Click ‘Buy now’.
