Update 30 June: The PS5 is in stock at Argus, playstationdirect, AO, Look and, ShopTo, Curriesand the BT Shop for BT Broadband customers. The PS5 could restock at Game this week. Read on for more information.
Since launching in 2020, the PlayStation 5 has been seriously difficult to get hold of. Supply chain issues stemming from the global pandemic have brought production of Sony’s latest games console to a near-standstill.
Thankfully, the situation has improved in recent months. The PS5 was pretty much in stock throughout the entire month of May, with Game leading the charge and over 100 restocks in all – the most we’ve ever seen since Sony released the console. And as we reach the end of June, the month has so far continued this momentum, with Game, EE and the BT Shop, plus several independent retailers like The Game Collection, being in stock for much of the last few weeks. We hope this momentum continues as we head into July.
Saying that, 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.
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.

How to get a PS5 access code from BT
As we said in our previous post, 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.

Is the PS5 actually available at Argos?
A question older than time itself. This is really difficult to answer because of the unique way in which the Argos website works. You see, some PS5 listings show the console as “currently unavailable” (despite one also promoting a “special offer”…) while one, with a Horizon Forbidden West bundle, instead says it isn’t available in your area.
Dig into the collect-from-store option, then click on the ‘tell me where’ button and you might just get lucky. For example, we’re in south west London and our local stores are all sold out, but if we click that button we’re told stock is available at an Argos 23 miles away.
Home delivery is another issue entirely, as it’s a case of bashing in random postcodes until you find one that Argos has PS5 consoles it can send to that part of the country. This technique only really works if you get lucky with the postcodes of friends or family, who then don’t mind you posting a PS5 to them for you to collect later.

Very has also sold out of PS5 consoles
Another retailer to see its PS5 supply run dry is Look and. Stock lasted for a good few days, but a bundle with the disc edition and Horizon Forbidden West is now no longer available. Look and had four restocks in June and two in May that spanned a week, so we’re hopeful that plenty more consoles will be offered by the website through July.

ShopTo has sold out of PS5 console bundles
ShopTo had four PS5 bundles available the last time it had a console restock on 27 June. One remained for quite a while, but now all stock has been sold. The retailer doesn’t tend to get PS5 stock in that often, with its last four restocks taking place on 9 and 23 May, then 13 and 27 June. If this pattern continues, we can expect to see a couple more restocks towards the start and end of July.

This PS5 bundle is available at AO today
AO is one of a handful of retailers with PS5 stock available today. Unfortunately, for those hoping to get a console on the cheap, AO’s one and only bundle is priced at a hefty £629. The bundle includes the PS5 disc edition, along with Horizon Forbidden West, Grand Touring 7and a second Dualsense controller.
