release Gran Turismo 7 We’re close to that, but while next-gen titles continue to fall thick and fast, it’s still very difficult to get your hands on the PS5. More than a year since its launch, customers are still struggling with the ongoing global shortage of semiconductors caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Sony’s Playstation 5 was released in November 2020 and even though we’re now in March 2022, it’s still very difficult to secure the PS5.
While the last two weeks of February have been very successful in terms of inventory drops, it’s still the worst month for restocking since we started tracking consoles back in May 2021, with only 12 drops happening over the course of the month. Hopefully now March will be the month when we start seeing retailers actually deliver merchandise.
Our live blog is here to bring you one of Sony’s elusive next-generation consoles, as well as provide you with the details on our website. the best games And the Accessories To grab it along with your new device.

Where is Tesco’s PS5 stock?
“Where the heck is he Tesco PS5 restocking? We hear you crying. The last time Tesco had an online restock was on March 15, 2021. It’s been so long that we stopped expecting Tesco to go down altogether, as it never came true.
The last rumored date for Tesco to drop was June 2, 2021, with stock trackers claiming it received a shipment in late May 2021. That never happened. We’ve occasionally seen reports of people being able to buy a PS5 right off Tesco’s shelves, but those reports come up maybe once every three or four months.

Can we expect a Currys PS5 restock anytime soon?
curry I used to use a terrible VIP lane drag system to take out consoles for their customers. It sounded great in theory, but it wasn’t great in practice. why? Because it was too exclusive for his own good.
Anyone looking for the console between June and December was not able to get their hands on the PS5 from the retailer at all. It closed the raffle for newcomers in late May, but continued to send out invitations to buy the console to anyone who registered between February and April all the way through to December 2.
Fortunately, that system is now phased out, but the PS5 is still very difficult to get from the retailer. We last saw Currys restock on Friday, February 18, and before that on Friday, January 28. It seems to be settling into a Friday restocking pattern now, so could we see more consoles dropping on Friday? maybe.
Carey’s waited exactly three weeks between restockings, so if he holds this pattern, we could see a dip on Friday, March 10, but we’ll still be watching tomorrow morning.

Argos PS5 stock is set to drop next week
Argos It just got a restock last week and is already set again, according to the guys on the @PS5StockAlertUK Twitter account. Argos is one of a handful of retailers that has a PS5 inventory checker that knows the inside thanks to some malicious moles crawling into the system.
And it’s currently expecting a drop between March 9-11, when both tablets and consoles are set to drop in digital. In recent months, we’ve seen the retailer’s batch stock live between 3-6am, which isn’t ideal. We’ll update you all if we hear more.

Big drop in PS5 expected for next week
is very He’s a very reliable retailer when it comes to PS5 restocking – he usually likes to drop stock on Tuesday, sometime in the first half of the month. The last PS5 restock took place at the retailer on Tuesday, February 8th at around 10am.
We anticipate another big drop on March 8th – a month after the previous restocking. Consoles usually arrive between 9-10 am. The retailer sells both standalone release consoles and disc bundles, but you won’t be able to browse the list until inventory is actually running.
It takes the page down when all the stocks are sold out, so any links too in the live blog will send you to the homepage instead of the PS5 page.

Why is the PS5 digital version so hard to find?
It’s been like that ever since the console was first released in November 2020. When Eurogamer Talk to the sources At many retailers prior to the console’s release, retailers were said to have assigned about 25 percent of digital version consoles and 75 percent of disc version consoles.
We don’t know if the situation has changed since then, but we’re still seeing fewer digital edition consoles drop than disc edition consoles, as evidenced by yesterday’s Amazon restock drop and the overall digital release pattern. It’s also a very smart business idea from the retailers themselves, who may also prefer to order the disc version console over digital – they cost more (£449.99) for one, and can bundle it with physical games to charge a premium.

Some context on yesterday’s Amazon PS5 restock
Amazon He finally restocked the digital version of the PS5 console yesterday morning, but it sold out in the blink of an eye. While retailers are still apparently getting shipments of the digital version console, the drops appear to be much smaller and much shorter than restocking the disc version.
Before yesterday’s digital restocking, Amazon hadn’t dropped the digital edition consoles since December 22, but it has restocked the disc edition twice in the meantime. While Amazon’s disc release drops can last up to half an hour, digital release drops tend to last five minutes at most.
It’s a trend we’ve seen since the PS5 first went on sale in 2020, and we don’t expect digital version console shipments to improve until stock is put in with the disc version console sorting itself first.

Hamleys PS5 stock sells out in minutes
So it seems Hamleys He had a small PS5 restock earlier this morning, with the most ridiculous package that couldn’t be more Hamleys if you tried. The retailer was selling a version of the PS5 disc that came with a copy of FIFA 22 And wait for that, a bear that seems to cost around £100.
Despite the frankly outrageous £614 package, it sold out within a few minutes, so enjoy your bear hunting.
