Tech Gifts Will Be Harder To Find This Holiday Season
The PS5 arrived in the UK almost a full year ago, on 19 November 2020, but supply problems and a global chip shortage have caused the production of Sony’s new game console to slow significantly. New stock is still difficult to find, and when it does appear the PS5 sells out almost instantly, both in-store and online.
November has got off to an extremely slow start when it comes to PS5 restocks. In the first week of the month, we only saw John Lewis & Partners, Game and ShopTo drop stock. But it’s starting to pick up, with AO, Very and Asda having dropped last week, PlayStation Direct restocking for the first time on Monday and Currys sending out new codes on Tuesday.
If you’re still on the lookout for a PS5, you’ve come to the right place. Our liveblog is on hand to give you the latest insight on Playstation 5 restocks from all major UK retailers, both online and in-store, as well as providing details on rumoured releases, plus the latest PS5 games and accessories to snap up.

The best gaming deals for Black Friday 2021
Although the big day doesn’t official land until 26 November, the early Black Friday sales are now upon us. As ever, technology and gaming will be hot topics, with discounts on consoles, games, accessories and more. The IndyBest team will be with you every step of the way, highlighting the best deals from right across the web.
Gaming deals this Black Friday will be up for grabs far and wide, from specialists like Game and ShopTo, as well as general retailers like Amazon, Very, Argos, Currys and more. We can’t promise discounts on the still-tricky-to-find Xbox series X and PlayStation 5, nor the Nintendo Switch OLED – which we have recently reviewed, but you can definitely expect to see money off games, accessories, other consoles and digital services.

What time will Game PS5 bundles drop this morning?
Thank your lucky stars if you weren’t around on the blog yesterday morning. It was one massive palaver! Game announced that it was dropping the PS5 that very morning, then quickly deleted the tweet.
The retailer put up another tweet saying that it got too excited and that the restock would actually be happening today instead! The last two PS5 restocks took place at 10am, so we’re expecting it to take place around the same time.
There are 47 different bundles listed on Game’s PS5 bundles page right now. Check them out and pick one in advance.

PS5 digital edition is in stock at Amazon now
Click ‘See all buying options’ if you don’t see the Buy Now button.
- Make sure to use Amazon Smile – a separate website that gives a portion of the cost of your purchase toward a chosen charity of your choice. Amazon Smile gets a lot less traffic than the regular Amazon website, so if there are issues, Smile should work better
- Add the console to your wish list and then add it to your basket – apparently, people have found more success this way

Amazon PS5 stock is now live
It’s here! The disc edition of the PS5 is now in stock at Amazon! The console costs £449.99 (Amazon.co.uk). If it hasn’t appeared for you yet, keep refreshing the page – it’s often set live in the background before going live on the front-end. The digital edition console should drop next.
If you’re having issues checking out, try using Amazon Smile – a separate website that gives a portion of the cost of your purchase toward a chosen charity of your choice. Amazon Smile gets a lot less traffic than the regular Amazon website.
