The PlayStation5 is the most sought-after gadget on the planet right now with gamers desperately trying to get their hands on a new console.

Following its November 2020 release, Brits have found it nearly impossible to find Sony’s latest gaming console.

But UK gaming fans have been given hope with rumours that there “large” PS5 restocks are expected in April.

There have been relatively few PS5 stock drops in recent weeks after Sony pushed to make a large number of consoles available ahead of Christmas.


There were new releases at BT, EE, Amazon, Asda and Game last week, but they quickly sold out.

However, the UK’s leading PS5 restock tracker is expecting “large” restocks of the consoles in April.

Taking to Twitter, PS5 Stock UK (@PS5StockAlertUK) said: “Last Christmas' shipment boost causing longer patches for Q1 2022 with PS5 restocks should slowly overturn this April onward.

“We can expect a few large drops this month.”

Whenever new stock lands, it is picked up within seconds and often sells out within a minute.

Demand has been so great that many retailers have brought in new rules to avoid scalpers taking advantage of the system for profit.

Game said: “PlayStation 5's continue to be in very high demand and that demand far outweighs current supply.

“We have strong measures in place to help ensure that our ‘1 per customer’ statement is maintained to allow for as many individual customers to successfully purchase as possible.

“All pre-orders are subject to automatic checks.

“Order updates take place after a customer will have received a valid order confirmation email.

“At the present time these orders are still pre-orders and as such no payments have yet been taken from customers.

“Payments will commence once our order checks have been completed.”
