Timeline of Playstation 5 stock in the UK
- 2021 in general: The pandemic gave rise to an increased demand in games consoles as more people sought entertainment from home. There simply wasn’t enough supply of the PS5 despite Sony’s best efforts of production.
- 2020 – 2021: PS5 scalping occurs (buying loads of the console in one go, often by bots). These consoles are sold on third party sites like eBay but scalping is slowly becoming unprofitable as the months go on.
- December 2020 – January 2021: Argos, Amazon, Smyths, Game, Currys, John Lewis, Very and AO had limited amounts of PS5 – all of which sold out very quickly.
- 20 November 2020: PS5 stock is available on eBay from 3rd party sellers for far beyond the RRP.
- 19 November 2020: The PS5 was launched into the UK with stock at most major electronics retailers. The first round of stock sold out almost instantly.
- October 2020: The PS5 became available to pre-order from retailers including Very, Currys, John Lewis and Game.The pre-sale stock sold out almost instantly.
The Playstation franchise is one we hope will carry on forever. Ever since Sony’s launch of the PS1 in 1994, the console has gone on from strength to strength up to the PS5’s release in November 2020. Featuring vastly improved graphics with almost no load times, a brand new controller and a bevy of fresh first-party IP, it’s changed the gaming landscape with a fully immersive experience.

Should I buy the standard or digital version of the PS5?
With the exception of the disc slot, the two versions are identical beneath the hood. If you rarely use physical media and have a solid internet connection to download all your media, then the all-digital version might be worth considering to save some money. However, if you’re going to use the PS5 as a full entertainment hub, go for the standard edition.
