Update 4 July: The PS5 is in stock at Basethe BT Shop, Curries and EE for existing EE customers. The PS5 could restock at Game this week. Read on for more information.
Since its launch in 2020, the PlayStation 5 has been seriously tough to get hold of. Supply chain issues stemming from the global pandemic have brought the production of Sony’s latest games console to a near-standstill.
Thankfully, things have improved in recent months. The PS5 was pretty much in stock throughout the entire months of May and June, with Game and the BT Shop, plus several independent retailers like The Game Collection leading the charge. We expect this avalanche of console restocks to continue throughout the summer. With Amazon Prime Day on the horizon, we’re also playing close attention to the tech giant’s website this week.
Despite restocks becoming more regular, buying a console on its own is still more difficult than picking up a bundle, with standalone consoles selling out in the blink of an eye, while digital consoles (bundles included) have been non-existent. But we’re here to help, whether you’re after a bundle or the standalone PS5 disc and PS5 digital edition consoles.
Are you still hunting down the elusive PlayStation 5? Our goal is to secure you a next-gen machine, as well as provide you with the details on the best games and accessories to nab alongside your new console, plus the latest game reviews.

What games are coming to PS5 in 2022?
Summer is always a busy time for game announcements as we start seeing release dates appear for later in the year. Some of the big announcements from Summer Games Fest include Resident Evil 4 and Street Fighter 6.
There’s a lot of ground to cover in the coming months so luckily we’ve compiled a list together of all the games that we’re looking forward to playing this year. Read our full guide on all the upcoming PS5 titles for 2022.

Can you expand the PS5 storage?
The PS5 standard edition comes with 825GB of usable storage to download all the latest games but as you might be aware, they can pack quite a bit of heft. For example, Grand Touring 7 on the PS5 (£58.95, Amazon.co.uk) has a file size of over 89GB, over a tenth of the console’s capacity.
Luckily, there’s an easy way to expand your total storage, simply by popping off the PS5’s cover and installing an internal SSD. Currently, there’s one available from Amazon with over 52 per cent off (£124.98, Amazon.co.uk) that adds 1TB of extra space to your console and it’s one of our favorite accessories for the PS5.

Can you get a PS5 on Amazon Prime Day?
Amazon Prime Day kicks off on 12 and 13 July with its usual two-day shopping bonanza next week. As always, many big-ticket items will be on offer, so if you’re looking to pick up some new games on PlayStation, Xbox and the Nintendo Switch, but are we likely to see PS5 consoles made available as part of the event?
The early Prime Day deals kicked off on 21 June, which also happened to be on the same day as Amazon’s last PS5 drop. While this may have been a coincidence we are expecting Amazon to make at least one drop every month, so maybe we’ll see some more consoles arrive for the event?
Even if that’s hopeful thinking, we’ve already seen plenty of great deals on other PS5 games and accessories, such as pre-orders for the upcoming horror title The Callisto Protocol for £45.95 (Amazon.co.uk), the cheapest we’ve managed to find the game so far. Find out more about the best early Amazon Prime Day gaming deals ahead of next week.

PS5 bundle available from BT Shop
BT is giving its customers a helping hand when it comes to securing a PS5. Instead of throwing open the virtual doors and dealing with a stampede like other retailers, BT sends out unique voucher codes to its customers.
If you are a BT TV customer, for example, or subscribe to BT Sport, you can apply to receive a PS5 voucher code. These are emailed out sporadically and can be used to access a PS5 next time the BT store has a restock. You still have to pay the regular price, of course, but this system is a neat way of rewarding BT customers and giving them a better chance of securing a console.
Right now, BT customers will be able to pick up the PS5 Horizon Forbidden West bundle for £499.99.
