Can we expect some hefty restocks this week?

(The Independent)

Update: The PS5 could drop at game and Amazon this week. Read on for more information.

2022 looks to be a promising year for PS5 gamers, with upcoming titles such ace Elden Ring, Sifu, Horizon: Forbidden West, Gran Turismo 7 and maybe even the PS5 VR2 headset coming in the next few months. But how difficult is it to get a PS5?

Well, we’re sad to say that over a year since its launch, customers are still scrambling to get their hands on a PS5 console due to the ongoing global semiconductor shortage sparked by the pandemic.

Sony’s Playstation 5 was released in November 2020 and even though we’re now in February 2022, demand for the console is still high. January was one of the slowest months for restocks on record, with only 13 drops taking place throughout the month. February has also been pretty slow. There were only four restocks last week from Smyths Toys, Very, ShopTo and Studio. But we’re ever optimistic and are hoping that our fortunes are set to change this morning.

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

What Game PS5 bundles are there?

There are 29 bundles currently listed on Game’s PS5 bundles page. The cheapest disc edition bundle comes with a copy of Spider-Man: Miles Moralesa cap, a T-shirt and an extra dualsense controller for £581.95 (Game.co.uk).

These bundles are subject to change when stock actually goes live, however. We’re expecting to see some new Horizon Forbidden West bundles released, seeing as 18 February coincides with the game’s release date.

Why do we think a Game PS5 restock could happen today?

Game restocks are usually pretty easy to predict. The retailer helpfully updates its PS5 bundles page with new release dates – also known as dispatch dates – every couple of weeks, giving us an indication of when a drop could happen.

Drops tend to take place a week and a half before this dispatch date, which is currently set for 18 February. That’s mere days away, so we’re guessing that there has been a delay of sorts. This does mean that a drop is even more likely to happen this week, however. It also only ever restocks on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.

What time could the Game PS5 restock take place?

(The Independent)

If consoles do drop at Game this morning (which isn’t a guarantee, by the way), we could see them drop at around 10am, give or take.

The retailer tends to put out a tweet ahead of a restock, informing customers that it’s going to have a drop that morning. We’re just waiting for that tweet to come through. It’s not the only possible day this week though, it could also restock on Wednesday or Thursday, but let’s keep our fingers crossed for a Tuesday drop.

PS5 liveblog, signing out

Let’s recap today’s PS5 restock events, shall we? We can count them on no hands, because there were no drops today. That’s right – none.

Fret not though, we could potentially see some more consoles drop at Game tomorrow, especially since the retailer restocked the Xbox series X earlier today. Catch you all tomorrow morning for some more stock tracking action. Nighty night.

‘Dying Light 2’ PS5 review

Dying Light 2 was finally released earlier this month, and the zombie parkour game certainly got our gaming writer’s heart racing in their review.

Dying Light 2 features “a world devastated not just by the shambling infected, but the tribalism of those unlucky enough to survive it,” our writer said in their review of the game. A day/night cycle, that rewards curiosity over caution, a city that’s as fun to navigate as it is to stop and admire its buildings and the flailing body of a bandit after being kicked into a table and getting stuck on its geometry.”

Want to find out what we thought of the game? Read our full review below.

Could Very PS5 stock drop soon?

(The Independent)

Sign. Another quiet Monday without any restocks. But could Very drop soon? We’re doubtful. The retailer had a restock last week, so we aren’t expecting another one until the end of February at the earliest.

If you weren’t around during last week’s drop, you dodged a bullet. It was a pretty infuriating one, with the retailer removing its waiting room a little too early. This meant that scalpers could cop the console ahead of genuine buyers. Let’s hope that gets fixed for the next restock.

On the hunt for an Xbox series X?

We know, the PS5 is ridiculously difficult to secure right now, but the Xbox series X has been considerably easier so far this year.

Right now, Microsoft’s next-gen console is in stock at Asda and Smyths Toys. If you’re in dire need of something to play, why not take a walk over to our Xbox series X restock liveblog for all the details on how to pick it up?

How much is a PS5?

There are two different versions of the PlayStation 5 available. The regular PS5, which includes a disc drive, costs £449.99, while the PS5 digital edition, which lacks a disc drive, is priced at £349.99.

The disc edition console is the exact same price as the Xbox series X, while the Xbox series S is considerably cheaper than the digital edition PS5, but it’s also far less powerful.

Many retailers, including Game, Very, Argos, ShopTo and Ace Studio, like to sell their PS5 stock in bundles. We know most of you hate this because it means spending more, but it also works as an excellent scalper deterrent.
