Where to buy PS5: Restock updates and how to pre-order Sony’s elusive PlayStation 5 console

Last Updated on January 12, 2022 by admin

The PS5 has been out for over a year now and gamers are still struggling to get their hands on Sony’s newest console. Stock issues have plagued the PS5 ever since it launched in 2020, and the restock kerfuffle is still going on today.

The sad tale began in November 2020, when excited gamers tore open PS5 parcels that they had pre-ordered, only to find them replaced with cat food, a George Foreman grill, and a bag of grain. Whenever more PS5s were made available, they were snapped up almost immediately, with scalpers leading the charge.

Unfortunately, the availability of the PS5 isn’t likely to improve until mid or even late 2022, thanks to the global shortage in semiconductors, partly caused by the increased demand for electronics over the last year and a half. In November, it was reported that Sony was revising down its production of consoles from 16 million to 15 million between April 2021 and March 2022.

On the PS5’s first birthday, Sony’s CEO Jim Ryan gave gamers a quick update on the stock situation in a short blog post. “We continue to see historic demand for PS5 and we understand the inventory constraints remain a source of frustration for many of our customers,” Ryan wrote. “Rest assured that we are laser-focused on doing everything in our power to ship as many units as possible, it’s something we work on every day across the company and remains my top priority. Again, we appreciate your patience as we navigate through these unprecedented global challenges.”

That said, things have been looking up over the last couple of months with restocks galore, and we even saw the launch of PlayStation Direct in the UK in November. The pre-Christmas retailer rush also saw the largest number of monthly restocks in PS5 history as retailers pulled out all the stops to get consoles under trees. Still, hunting? We’re at hand to ensure you bag a console in January and beyond.

We’ve been predicting restocks for months now, and have seen patterns emerge among the major retailers. In the months ahead, Sony expects the situation to improve, and hopefully, shelves will start filling up nicely. We’ll also be updating this page with our predictions regularly and whenever we hear exactly when retailers will be stocking up once again.
