PS5 UK stock LIVE – Argos has consoles in stock NOW

ARGOS has had a PS5 restock this morning with customers sharing a nifty trick to help them bag a console.

One tracker wrote: “Argos still dropping, if you can’t see it yet keep trying. Add to wishlist from the app, move to trolley. Open in web browser and check your trolley, then select options!”

“Argos is LIVE! They will be doing regional, localised drops! If it’s showing as unavailable for you, keep checking back frequently!”, they added.

One shopper wrote “I went into the Argos app, signed out, made a new account and THEN it showed it being available and allowed me to checkout for the PS5! Previously in my wish list, it just said ‘unavailable’.”

The advice saw several people thank the shopper and say they’d managed to bag a console it previously showed as unavailable in their old account.

The restock comes comes as Curry’s made a dramatic change to way customers can buy PS5s, introducing a new “raffle” system.

The tech retailer is planning to scrap the queue system it and many other websites have previously used as it “unfairly” rewards those with stronger interview connections and with time to sit online.

Now Curry’s is allowing customers to register for a “priority pass” which enters them into a raffle which in turn gives them a special code that’s valid for 72 hours and allows them to make a PS5 purchase.

The introduction of the scheme comes amid huge rumours Curry’s will be dropping more stock this week.

  • NINTENDO SWITCH 2 TO BE LAUNCHED SOON, REPORTS CLAIM

    Desperate for a Nintendo Switch 2? The console sequel might arrive very soon.

    We don’t know exactly when the console will be out – or even if it exists.

    The best info comes from Bloomberg, which says Nintendo is aiming to launch in time for the holidays.

    That likely means we’ll see something between September and December 2021.

    It’s not too farfetched, given that Nintendo will want to better compete with the PS5 and Xbox this Christmas.

  • AO PS5 STOCK NOW SOLD OUT

    Electrical retailer AO is released PS5 stock – but via phone lines only.

    Gamers could get their hands on a console by contacting AO today – but their stock is now sold out.

    Restock alerts account @PS5UKStock wrote on Twitter: “We’re having better success getting through with the main Customer Care number 0161 470 1200.

    “Currently listening to S Club 7 on hold.”

  • CURRYS TO RELEASE PS5 STOCK THROUGH NEW ‘PRIORITY PASS’ LOTTERY SYSTEM

    Currys has announced a new system for gamers hoping to buy the in-demand PlayStation 5.

    The UK retailer’s new “Priority Pass” lottery scheme went live on Wednesday and will randomly select registered gamers to be given the chance to buy Sony’s new console.

    It’s designed to block the activity of so-called “scalpers” – seedy groups who use automated bots to buy up PS5s in bulk and sell them on for profit.

    The £449 console is currently sold out at Currys – as well as multiple other stores – and there’s no word on when a restock will drop.

    To enter for a Priority Pass, head to this link and plug in your contact details.

  • SCAM WARNING

    Gamers desperate to get their hands on a PlayStation 5 have been alerted to a new scam email doing the rounds.

    The fraudulent message purporting to be from staff at UK retailer GAME asks recipients for their bank details. Customers ordering PS5 consoles have been urged to act vigilant amid a concerning rise in e-mail scams.

    PS5 trackers have been set up on social media to alert gamers to restocks of the sold out console. Some also highlight prominent scams.

    One tracker wrote on Twitter this week: “WARNING. We have reports of people receiving fake GAME emails asking for bank details. DO NOT RESPOND OR GIVE ANY DETAILS TO THEM! It’s a scam!

    “The email is [email protected] The correct email for GAME is [email protected]

  • ARGOS DROPS STOCK IN EARLY HOURS… AGAIN

    Gamers have once again been left fuming after Argos dropped stock during the night.

    The retailer restocked the PS5 at around 4am, with some saying dropping at such a time helps out scalpers.

    One unhappy customer wrote on Twitter: “What is honestly the point in putting PS5 up at 4am? Why not ask people to sign up take a small deposit and when they come in they get one? Instead I’ve been looking for weeks and you expect people working at normal hours to get up at stupid hours.”

    Another wrote: “Shambolic with the PS5 again you need to stop selling to scalpers and it would be more beneficial to honest buyers if it was click and collect only.”

  • DID YOU BAG A PS5?

    GAME dropped stock yesterday – but it seems many were left disappointed after failing to bag a PS5.

    A poll by Twitter stock tracker @Ps5StockAlertUK has revealed just 12.6 per cent of voters managed to get a console, while 63.2 per cent missed out.

    That’s out of more than 12,400 people.

  • PLAYSTATION GIVE THEMSELVES PAT ON THE BACK

    PlayStation boss Jim Ryan praised the company for delivering a “considerable amount” of consoles into the UK market last week.

    He told GQ,”We’re doing our best. I was just looking at the supply figures for the UK – we put a considerable amount of product into the UK market last week.

    “And that will continue over weeks and months to come.”

  • BEST TIME TO BUY PS5 REVEALED BY SONY BOSS

    Sony has given hope for anyone who hasn’t been able to bag a PlayStation 5 yet.

    PlayStation president Jim Ryan has admitted that more PS5 stock is on the way.

    The PS5 has been largely sold out since it launched in November 2020.

    But speaking to the Financial Times, Ryan admitted that stock levels would climb steadily month-on-month.

    He added that from July onwards, it will be much easier to get a PS5.

    “It will get better every month throughout 2021,” Ryan explained.

    A tech whizz has built a bonkers modified PlayStation 5 with a water cooling system typically sported by high-end gaming PCs.

    The Vietnamese customiser also added sleek white body plates to his console, which he hopes to sell commercially in future.

    A video showcasing the impressive build was uploaded to YouTube last month.

    PC modder Nhenhophach says that he replaced almost the entire PlayStation bodywork with new plates and parts.

    He reckons that the water cooling system – designed to stop the console from overheating – ensures it always runs at peak performance.

    A handful of lucky customers who enter will then be selected at random to receive an invitation to purchase a PlayStation 5.

    The winners will be drawn on an unspecified future date. Retailers currently restock the console once every few weeks.

    When new stock is available, Currys will contact a handful of random entrants and request a payment.

    If payment is not received, that entrant will lose their allocation and the console will be offered to the next random participant.

    It’s important to note that entering your email doesn’t guarantee you an opportunity to buy a PS5 – you’ll need a stroke of luck, too.

  • STOCK UPDATE

    GAME had released some limited stock an hour ago.

    However, they are now out of stock.

    But don’t worry – there seems to be more drops recently so it might not be too long until you bag one.

  • CONTINUED

    The PS5 launched in November 2020 and stock has been in short supply ever since due to a global shortage of the chips used to power the console.

    Restocks at various retailers drop most weeks but typically sell out within minutes as demand vastly outstrips supply.

    Scammers frequently prey on gamers desperate to get their hands on a console, often using false promises of stock to reel in victims.

    GAME dropped a big PS5 restock earlier this week.

    Commenting on the latest scam, Twitter users thanked the tracker account for bringing the potential pitfall to their attention.

    “Thanks for informing us im sure u helped quite a bit!” one fan replied.
