Update: ShopTo u Scan PS5 stock may decline today. Read on for more information.
Eight months have passed since the launch of the PS5, but persistent supply problems and a global semiconductor shortage have reduced next-generation console production to a crawl. New stock is hard to find, and when it appears the PS5 will sell out quickly.
With that said, things are slowly getting better. In May, we saw supplies from all major UK retailers for the first time since the console’s release. The comeback failed in June, but the stock in the store at Game made a small revival. July has been a mixed bag so far, but restocks have picked up pace again, with six cuts last week from people like Amazon and John Lewis. So far this week, we have enjoyed four drops from Very, Smyths Toys, Argos and Game.
If you’re looking to get your mitts on PS5, there’s still hope. We are ready to give you the latest knowledge on the Playstation 5 restocking from all major retailers, both online and in-store, as well as provide details on rumor releases, the latest PS5 games and accessories to capture and much more. Happy hunting.
Check out the stock from UK PS5 retailers below:
Do you need an Xbox X series as well?
Seven months have passed since the release of the Xbox X series, and as in the case of the PS5, global demand coupled with semiconductor shortage issues, has led to serious stock issues. Hardly a console was seen during July, with Very and Argos storage consoles only this week.

The best PS5 accessories
Did you manage to secure PS5 in the fall of the Game yesterday? You’ll need some PS5 accessories to go with it.
Take for example the PlayStation 5’s second dualsense controller (£ 56.99, Amazon.co.uk). It is essential for two player games. Our reviewer said: “In addition to looking and feeling good, it also has some useful features such as haptic feedback, which is a much superior form of vibration, and a set of trigger buttons that are much more responsive and tactile. previous PlayStation controllers. “
Or, you might want to get away with Sony PlayStation 5 media (£ 24, Amazon.co.uk) because “consoles aren’t just for gaming – they’re also very affordable media streaming devices” , according to our reviewer.

When will the PS5 AO consoles return in stock?
AO.com was another retailer that is said to be declining this week. The last time AO had a PS5 restock was on July 6th. It’s a bit of a challenging website to crack because you literally need to amend the website code using the Google Chrome element inspector to secure a console. We predict that the retailer will have a reduction next week, so it’s worth getting into some practice. Here you have to do:
- In Chrome, copy one of these product codes. For the single PS5 console, copy “p5hehwsny39500” and for the Ratchet & Clank bundle, copy “p5hehwcst60128”.
- Now go to a random product page on AO.com, like this smart speaker.
- Right-click on the green “add to basket” button and select “inspect item”, then in the window that appears on the side of your screen change the speaker’s product code with PS5 product code you just copied. It is the series of numbers and letters that immediately follows “data-productcode =”.

Why is there a lack of PS5, anyway?
Well, it’s a perfect storm of all manufacturing problems coming from the usual suspect: the global pandemic. The Coronavirus set up many time-sensitive supply chains that were already under enormous pressure, creating a domino effect that is still felt today. In particular, the lack of semiconductors has made it impossible to build enough PS5s to meet demand, and is unlikely to be resolved any time soon.
Couple that with issues in distribution, not helped by the huge cargo ship Ever given that gets stuck in the Suez Canal for a long time, and you have the recipe for what you see today.
Don’t worry though, we’re keeping an eye on all the major retailers, and we’ll update you when the new PS5 consoles come out. For a more detailed explanation, read our article below.

The best PS5 games: ‘Spider-Man: Miles Morales’
If you’ve managed to secure a PS5 in one of the most recent drops, you may want to take a look at our round-up of the best PS5 games. We highly recommend Marvel Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Our reviewer called it the best action game so far.
“The Insomniac game for 2018 broke the curse of the long-standing series by indeed being very good: an open world action adventure that made you feel, emphatically, like you were joining the web between skyscraper and thwacking hooks, “they wrote.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales refine the formula of the original. “This is a streamlined adventure with a more focused story, a much less busy job and an awkward protagonist of her heart who is still facing her powers,” they added.

When was the last restock of the Asda PS5?
Asda was one of the retailers that cut to drop the stock this week, and PS5 stock trackers have been continuously predicting drops since early July, but the consoles never materialize. The last fall in Asda took place on June 22nd at 9am and the stock was sold out within minutes, so it’s been a full month since we last saw stock at the retailer.
The stock tracking account @ PS5Instant claimed on July 7 that the retailer was receiving shiments that weekend and that the stock will be processed and start living between 13 and -21 July. That didn’t happen, unfortunately, but we hope so.

PS5 scalping is becoming less profitable
One of the reasons why the PS5 sells so fast is because scalpers come in with their bots and buy large quantities of them as soon as the stock starts to survive. They know how much the console is in demand and want to make a profit by reselling the console on eBay or other similar sites. But according to @ PS5Instant, PS5s on eBay are getting cheaper and cheaper, which means scalpers are finding it less profitable to resell the PS5 online.
We never advise you to buy a PS5 from a reseller – you always pay more than you pay for the desired console, and you are boosting the scalper market. The drops are catching up, so hold around and eventually find a console at a reputable retailer.

PS5 ‘Dead Space’
Get hyped! Electronic Arts has just announced at its EA Play Live event that Dead Space is taking PS5, Xbox X series and PC remake. The survival horror classic from 2008 will use the Frostbite machine. EA says it will raise “the level of horror and immersion to an unprecedented height […] through stunning visuals, audio and controls ”.
There is no release date yet, but we have a teaser trailer. The last Dead Space the game was released in 2013 and was so poorly received that the fourth game was never developed. Here we hope this is as good as the original.

John Lewis PS5 stock update
John Lewis last had a PS5 drop at 7am on July 13th. As usual with the retailer, it didn’t take long, but it always seems to go down at 7am like clockwork. Now we had a word on when exactly the console could drop on the next retailer’s website.
According to @ PS5StockAlertUK, the retailer is receiving new shipments of the PS5 on July 26 and there will be 1,872 small consoles available. John Lewis never has large quantities of stock when PS5s go down, with consoles usually selling out within 15 minutes. The stock is expected to go live on July 27-29 after the shipment is processed.
