Update: New PS4 and Switch games confirmed for release and ‘Abandoned’ PS5 app news. Read on for more information on the next PS5 drop.
The PS5 console was released more than six months ago, but no one could have predicted how hard it would be to get your hands on the device.
Restock issues have been plaguing Sony since the initial reveal, and despite stores reopening in the UK as lockdown measures lift, it’s still very difficult to secure a console in-store (and not easy online either).
In fact, it’s become so difficult for people to get their hands on a PS5 that it’s spawned a whole Twitter community of stock trackers, as well as a 24,500-strong community of Redditors all trying to nab the console before it sells out again.
But, it’s not all bad news; the restock landscape has started to improve in recent weeks. While June hasn’t brought similar monster drops we had in April, this week we’ve already seen a lengthy drop at Very, a restock at Asda, and even in-person drops at Game and Smyths Toys. There’s plenty of rumoured releases on the horizon, too.
