PS5 UK stock update – Smyths, GAME and Very 'drop Playstation consoles this week' – exact time and dates to be revealed

NEW PS5 console drops are expected from major retailers within DAYS after the 'bleakest restock week since February'.

John Lewis, Currys, Smyths and GAME are all expected to be lined up for restocks as soon as today.

It comes after gamers were left disappointed when rumours of a Smyths restock swirling on social media throughout this week came to no avail.

@Ps5Instant said: “Expecting GAME (9-10am) & Argos (1-4am) 8th to 14th April."

This has been backed up by another PS5 restock alerts account on Twitter, which has assured gamers desperately trying to get hold of the elusive console that “April is promising for stock”.

The account, @PS5CentralNews, claims “at least one major retailer will release every week”.

Rumours also continue that Amazon is about to make a large drop of PS5 consoles any day now.

        COULD THE PS5 SHORTAGE GET WORSE?

        The PS5 shortage could get worse as chip-makers struggle to meet demand.

        Sony’s PlayStation 5 has been largely out of stock since November – and might not be widely available until July.

        Much of this is being blamed on a global “crisis” in the computer chip world.

        Demand for chips is through the roof, and suppliers can’t keep pace.

        Prices of chips are rising as a result, and major manufacturers like Apple and Samsung are being prioritised.
