GAMERS will almost certainly be able to get their hands on a PS5 this week as seven top UK retailers are planning restocks.

Argos appears to have dropped the coveted console last night and, although the site currently doesn’t show stock, rumours are there are enough consoles to last until tomorrow and new stock is being drip-fed all the time.

So it will pay to keep refreshing the Argos PS5 page as consoles could drop any time over the next 36 hours.

Meanwhile Very, Game, John Lewis and BT are all expected to get restocks today, while an error message on Amazon’s PS5 page left shoppers furious

After thinking they’d found a console in stock and added it to their basket, a pop-up message appeared telling them any orders made “will not have processed at this time”.

Since its launch last November, millions of gamers around the world have struggled to bag a PlayStation 5.

With restock rumours swirling continually, only the quickest off the mark at shops like Very and Amazon have been able to pick one up so far.

Follow our PS5 live blog below for the very latest news, updates and stock drop rumours…

  • MARVEL’S AVENGERS GAME TO BE RELEASED

    The new Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of Marvel’s Avengers will be released alongside the game’s Hawkeye DLC on March 18.

    Publisher Square Enix said the current-gen console versions will feature “upgraded visuals and framerate, significantly faster load times, improved destruction and Heroic detail”.

    What’s more, users moving from PS4 to PS5 or Xbox One to Xbox Series X/S will be able to upgrade the game free of charge. These users will be able to transfer their saves, player profiles and progression to current-gen consoles, with cross-gen play supported within console families.

    The second part of Marvel’s Avengers’ two Hawkeyes’ story arc will conclude with Clint Barton DLC, which is titled Operation Hawkeye: Future Imperfect.

    It comes after first part of the Hawkeyes’ story, Kate Bishop – Taking AIM, launched in December 2020.

  • WORLD’S BIGGEST PS5

    An influencer has bought the world’s biggest PlayStation 5 – a fully functional console standing 10ft tall and weighing 230 kilos.

    In a recent video, American YouTube star Zachary “ZHC” Hsieh said that he purchased the bonkers contraption coupled with a gigantic, working controller for £50,000.

    ZHC, who boasts over 19million subscribers on the video platform, said he then spent 100 hours customising the behemoth with a colourful paint job.

    It’s apparently 100 times larger than a bog standard PS5, which Sony launched in November 2020.

    “The crazy thing is, this PS5 actually works,” the 22-year-old said in a video uploaded to YouTube this month.

  • PS5 HAS BETTER BLU-RAY PLAYER THAN XBOX SERIES X

    The PS5 has one major advantage over bitter rival the Xbox Series X, according an audio-visual geek.

    Vincent Teoh from YouTube channel HDTVTest carried out an in-depth comparison of the consoles’ Blu-Ray players, and found Sony’s machine came out on top.

    After placing the two consoles side-by-side, he showed that the PS5 avoids frame rate stutters during playback, which the Series X is prone too.

    Microsoft’s powerhouse also doesn’t display 12-bit color, leading to less chroma bandwidth than Sony’s machine.

  • AMAZON ‘DON’T KNOW’ WHEN PS5 WILL BE RESTOCKED

    Amazon restocked the PS5 yesterday morning – but some gamers were left disappointed.

    Unsurprisingly, the console sold out almost immediately.

    In response, Amazon Help tweeted yesterday: “Due to the speed with which the item sold out, it wasn’t possible to email all customers who had asked to be notified before it became unavailable, apologies.

    “We don’t know when the PlayStation 5 will be back in stock, however we recommend checking back on the website regularly as more stock will become available periodically.”

  • HOW MUCH DOES A PS5 COST?

    The PS5 launch fell on November 12, but not everywhere.
