PS5 stock could be easier to get hold of in the next few weeks, according to the latest PlayStation 5 restock rumour. At the time of writing the PS5 is sold out across the board in the UK, with stock still getting snapped up at lighting fast speeds whenever it does become available to buy. However, it looks like this barren spell of PS5 restocks in the UK could be about to change very soon.

The PS5 UK Stock – Instant Updates Twitter account has been tweeting about when PlayStation 5 gamers in the UK will be getting a chance to purchase the next-gen system again.

And according to the @PS5Instant Twitter the first week in January could see “most” retailers getting more stock, with “a huge third shipment” allegedly inbound.

On Christmas Eve the Twitter account dedicated to PS5 stock news tweeted: “ASDA said they expected stock as soon as Boxing Day. But this can be as late as 2021 Jan 1st week. A huge third shipment is being prepared to be sent to the UK soon, expected date 1st week Jan but can be delayed due to our port issues.”

And then over the weekend the @PS5Instant account added: “So looks like its pretty much confirmed that most retailers are expecting 3rd shipment of stock by Jan 7th… however unsure how ports situation will affect this. But delay can’t be more than a few days at best”.

The PS5 UK Stock – Instant Updates Twitter account went on to claim that BT and EE customers will be able to purchase a PS5 once again on Thursday January 7 2021.

While in recent tweets the account emphasied that PS5 UK restocks should be happening next week, as long as there are no delays.

The PS5 stock Twitter account also urged followers against paying the exorbitant amounts scalpers are charging for the PlayStation 5 on sites such as eBay.

Some Buy It Now listings on the auction site are asking for almost three times the asking price of a PS5.

The PS5 UK Stock – Instant Updates Twitter account tweeted: “If there are no delays the next drop will happen next week. Don’t PANIC buy now!!

“Don’t waste your time stressing and refreshing, just keep an eye on this page next week, I won’t miss any drops, I’ve got bots on 24/7.”

It then added: “So plenty of PS5 drops will occur on the 7th and 12th. Don’t buy stock from the scalpers, make sure they lose!”

The majority of UK retailers have not confirmed when they will be getting PS5 restocks, but the Smyths Toys website says they should be getting more stock in January.

Very has said they should be getting more PS5 stock “soon” while the ASDA Service Team Twitter account said they could have restock news in the coming weeks.

Argos, meanwhile, has said they are not expecting any more PS5 stock for the rest of 2020 while Currys and Amazon UK have all been unable to say when their next restock will be.
