PS5 restock LIVE – Smyths and Amazon UK ‘stock today and tomorrow’ plus latest on Playstation console at GAME and Argos


PS5 fans are hoping Amazon’s much-anticipated stock drop will come on Thursday after a new console batch was expected to arrive.

Twitter tipster PS5StockAlertUK yesterday said: “It’s looking like Amazon will drop either Tuesday or Wednesday now as they’ve passed today’s usual drop times.”

But with no sign of any consoles today, rumours are now afoot that the Playstations will actually appear on the Amazon UK website on Thursday.

Smyths Toys is also tipped to be restocking at the end of this week between March 18 – 20, according to @PS5StockAlert.

The restock news 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.
