PS5 restocked at Amazon but for much higher price

There’s just days to go until we’re in 2021 and many shoppers are still struggling to get their hands on the coveted Sony PS5.

The new console has been a hit with shoppers since it launched in the UK back in November, but many were left struggling to get a console in the run up to Christmas.

While some managed to get hold of the console during pre-sale earlier in the year, others waited in huge online queues and dealt with frustrating website glitches last month to get one.

Last week, Sony announced that the PS5 had been its biggest ever launch – and confirmed that more Playstation 5 stock would be available in stores before the end of 2020.

Now, with the new year just days away and no further details released, we’ve taken a look at some of the most popular retailers in the UK which have been popular with shoppers.

Here are the latest stock updates:


At the time of writing, Amazon currently has stock for the PS5 via selected sellers, though prices are significantly higher than on release, starting from £1,299. You can find them here.
