It’s been a year and a half since the PS5 was first released, and a year since we started officially tracking PS5 restocks, yet we’re all still here, clinging on to the dream of owning one of the elusive consoles.
While you still can’t reliably buy a PS5 in-store, the situation has massively improved online in recent weeks, and it has led to a nice uplift in restocks throughout the month of May, leading us to believe that the stock shortage may (temporarily?) be over.
Game has had PS5 bundles in stock for several weeks now, with some still available as of 26 May. This week, we’ve seen one of the biggest drops on record, with eight retailers restocking the console, including the BT Shop, Currys, John Lewis & Partners, Scan, Asda, Very and Studio. Buying a console on its own is more difficult than picking up a bundle, with standalone consoles selling out in the blink of an eye.
Still hunting down the elusive PS5 console? Our liveblog is here to get you one of Sony’s next-gen consoles, as well as provide you with the details on the best games and accessories to grab alongside your new machine, plus the latest game reviews. If you want to find out which online retailers will be the first to restock, then keep scrolling to receive updates as they happen.

Best ‘Sniper Elite 5’ deals on Playstation
Sniper Elite 5 is one of the biggest titles coming to home consoles and PCthis spring, complete with new multiplayer features as well as returning mechanics that made the series a firm favourite with stealth game fans.
In our review of the game, we said: “With its large and well executed environments, Sniper Elite 5 is a strong follow up to 2017’s previous entry in the series, with a healthy balance of open-ended approaches and a clear direction. Maps are large enought to revisit and rediscover new areas as well as acting as an endless playground to perform trick shots and discover its secrets.”

And lastly, we’ve got The Game Collection, who has just restocked another bundle onto its site. It’s expensive, but it’s jam-packed with next-gen titles that we’d ordinarily recommend anyway.
It’s a PS5 disc edition bundle and comes with Horizon Forbidden West, Death Stranding Director’s Cut, Immortals Fenyx Rising, Watch Dogs Legion, Subnautica: Below Zero, Grand Theft Auto V and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction and a steelbook.
