PS5 restock live blog - the latest US and UK console updates

PS5 restock live blog header green

(Image credit: Future)
  • US: Amazon Prime members get priority PS5 access through March
  • US: PlayStation Direct restock sells out
  • US: Walmart restock took place on March 14
  • UK: Currys and Game restocks sells out
  • UK: BT Shop restock now live
  • The first two weeks of March have been very busy for PS5 restocks with the majority of all the big retailers putting the console up for sale. Naturally, that means we expect it to be a lot quieter for at least a week as we wait for the next batch of consoles to arrive in stores. Make sure you don't miss out on the next drop with all the latest info right here, as well as regular updates on all the major retailers that stock the PS5.

    So, while it may be a slow end to the month, your chances of finally getting a PS5 will increase greatly as we get closer to April. PS5 restocks have been more regular as we get further into the year, usually taking place once every two to three weeks. Whatever happens, stay right here for all the latest info on the PS5 restocks happening right now, the ones scheduled for the future and the latest rumours so you can be best prepared.

    PS5 restock: retailers to check this week

    Amazon (US): restocks expected throughout March After two months of silence, Amazon finally held a PS5 restock at the end of February. It sold out in a matter of minutes. Why are we suggesting to keep an eye on them again so soon? Well, the product listing for the PS5 states that Amazon Prime members get priority access to the PS5 until March 31. We reckon that means at least one more restock is coming before the end of the month.

    BT Shop (UK): restocks now live for broadband customers

    If you're an existing BT Broadband customer, head on over to your MyBT page to reserve yourself a console now. Currently a number of bundles are up for grabs, including Gran Turismo 7, Horizon, and PS Plus.

    Incoming: US PS5 Restock at the official Sony Direct store

    Boom, here it is folks - get yourself ready for an imminent drop today at the Sony Direct store.

    As with most PS5 Restocks at Sony Direct, this one will be invite only and will run from 2PM E.T through 7PM E.T. Members are getting priority in the queue here, although there may be a slim chance for a general public release if there are any consoles left over (don't bank on this, though).

    If you get an invite, you'll be able to get the standard disk PS5 version for $499 and the diskless version for $399.

    Not a Sony Direct member? While you may be excluded from this drop you can actually sign up for free here. If you do sign up, make sure you enable notifications in your account profile so you don't miss a single email or slither of news. 


    Amazon UK PS5 restock sells out in minutes

    ...If not seconds, in fact. Did you get a console? Congrats if so - we didn't catch one ourselves, unfortunately.

    This latest PS5 restock from Amazon UK was the third this year - and a real surprise if we do say so. As with most Amazon PS5 restocks, this one included options for both a standalone disk version and a standalone digital edition. No bundles were available this time.  

    As of writing, consoles are still available at the BT Shop, although you'll need to be a broadband customer to be eligible for delivery. 

    In the US? It's been a while since we've seen an Amazon US PS5 Restock but the chances are going up each day now... keep your eyes peeled.


    PS5 Restock now live at BT Shop

    Are you in the UK and an existing BT broadband customer? Good news if so - consoles are now available to order via the BT Shop. Currently, there are still a few bundles left - including Gran Turismo 7, Horizon, and PS Plus membership.

    To reserve your console, head on over and sign in via MyBT. After that, you'll have to scroll down until you see an option to get a code. Simply redeem that and boom, you'll have your console in no time.

    If you're not a BT customer, unfortunately you'll have to sit this one out. Luckily, PS5 restocks have really been ramping up over the past few weeks in the UK, so you shouldn't have to wait long.

    Confirmed: UK PS5 restock at BT this week

    The PS5 restocks have really been ramping up in the UK recently and it looks like we'll be treated to another round this week - at least at the BT Shop.

    Confirmed via its official twitter account, BT has cryptically announced more consoles should be on the way 'this week'. When is that exactly? We have no idea, so we'll be keeping our eyes peeled now.

    As always with BT Shop PS5 restocks, the kicker here is you'll need to be an existing BT broadband user to be able to get your order in. When consoles do go live, you'll be able to order one via your personal My BT account.


    Restock Alert: PS5 bundles available at Game

    This was unexpected. Having only just held its last PS5 restock on March 10, console bundles are available once more at Game. It's the same selection we saw just last week, with a heavy emphasis on Horizon Forbidden West and Gran Turismo 7. Solo console are already sold out (or were never available) so you need to go for a bundle in order to buy a PS5 today.

    PS5 bundles in stock at Currys

    Four eye-wateringly expensive PS5 bundles are now live at Currys. Each one comes with at least one game and some accessories for the console, including wireless gaming headsets, PS5 SSDs and even a PS5 racing wheel. The cheapest of the lot is priced at £699, which means you're paying for at least £250 worth of extras. 

    Is that good value? Well, let's break it down assuming everything is included at the full price you can pay for the individual items at Currys. That's a copy of Horizon Forbidden West for £60, a Logitech G435 headset for £70 and a 1TB WD Black SN850 SSD for £172 - a total of £302. Looks good with a £52 saving, then, but a quick search around other retailers and you'll find all of those extras much cheaper. 

    Nevertheless, these bundles might contain everything you want for your PS5 so here's a way to get it all in one convenient package.

    No major updates today

    We've been listening out but there are no updates to offer today when it comes to the next PS5 restocks in both the US and the UK. It has been a busy couple of weeks at the start of March that saw practically all many retailers in both regions hold at least one restock event. Because of that, we're not surprised that it's quiet right now. Expect a more significant update closer to April.

    Walmart PS5 restock today at 12pm ET / 9am PT

    No dawdling this week. Walmart has confirmed that it will hold its next PS5 restock today from 12pm ET / 9am PT. As will all previous restocks at the retailer, you need to be a Walmart+ member in order to get access. Sadly, that doesn't guarantee you a console - it just gets you through the door. Expect both standard PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition consoles to be available when the time comes.

    PS5 Argos special offer

    The first PS5 bundle deal we've ever seen?

    We've just done our regular scout around all the major retailers to see what's new in the world of PS5 restocks and something has caught our eye. Could it be, the first-ever PS5 bundle deal?

    If you head to Argos right now, there's a special offer attached to its PS5 product page. What is it? Well, if you buy a PlayStation 5 console you get Horizon Forbidden West for just £30 – that's a saving of £30. Until this point, any PS5 bundles we've seen have included all the extra games and accessories for full price. Will this usher in a new wave of PS5 deals? We'll have to see when the next Argos PS5 restock begins, which, if the date on the offer is to be believed, should happen by March 14. However, stock trackers are predicting it'll be March 15 - 18, so let's hope the offer is reintroduced for it.

    Restock Alert: Target expected to go live within the hour

    Regular console restock tracker Jake Randall has just updated to suggest that a PS5 restock will go live at Target within the hour. Currently, the product page shows the PS5 console as out of stock, but this could change at any minute. Keep an eye on the page and refresh regularly for the best chance to get a console today

    Restock Alert: bundles available now at Game

    A selection of PS5 bundles is now in stock at Game. Options include consoles with the latest PlayStation exclusives such as Horizon Forbidden West and Gran Turismo 7. A small queue is currently in place, but you should be able to get through in time and still be able to buy a PS5.

    GameStop goes live soon

    GameStop is set to go live with its PS5 Digital Edition restock in a matter of minutes. The bundles are now visible on the site, so follow the link below and get ready to refresh from 11am ET - that's less than 10 minutes away.

    Check out the Digital Edition bundles for today's GameStop PS5 restock

    Here are the two Digital Edition bundles that will be available for today's GameStop PS5 restock at 11am ET.

    The first is a PS5 Digital Edition, PowerA DualSense Charging Station, DualSense Wireless Controller (Cosmic Red), $50 GameStop Gift Card, $50 PSN Voucher and 12 Month PS Plus Membership for $658.97. 

    The second swaps out the gift cards, vouchers and PS Plus membership for a 1TB Samsung 980 Pro (Heatsink) SSD that will double the storage space in the console. It costs $668.97.

    Undoubtedly, they are both very expensive, but we think the first is the better value of the two as it comes with vouchers you can use to buy the games you want. The PS Plus membership is a nice addition, too, as that gets you access to the PS Plus Collection - a selection of 20 top PS4 games that you can download and play immediately.

    Restock Alert: PlayStation Direct UK

    It's not only Very holding a PS5 restock this morning.

    Restock Alert: Very in stock now

    Looks like it's going to be a busy morning! To kick us off Very is now live with its latest PS5 restock. The waiting room is now open so you can currently claim a spot. We expect the restock to begin proper within the hour, so hold firm and hopefully you'll get through in time to buy a console. Just the Disc edition is confirmed so far, so it doesn't look like there will be Digital Edition consoles too.

    Picked up Gran Turismo 7 yet?

    Last Friday was a big day for fans of sim racers, as the latest entry in the uber-realistic Gran Turismo series finally launched. We've been covering it with some excitement here at TechRadar, including our massive Gran Turismo 7 review that called it the best PS5 exclusive so far.

    Naturally, nothing quite beats playing a game like this from behind a steering wheel, so we've gathered up all the best PS5 racing wheel deals that are available today and compatible with Gran Turismo 7. That said, you could also give the DualSense motion controls a try like Rhys did, which have apparently been implemented well and are s surprisingly good alternative.


    Amazon Prime member? You get early access to PS5 restocks

    Good news for Amazon Prime members who are still after a PS5. The retailer has added a note to its PS5 product page that reads:

    'Amazon Prime customers will have priority access to the PlayStation 5'

    Just last week, this specifically said the exclusivity window was until March 31, but it seems to have been updated to remove this end date. Given how quickly the PS5 sells out at Amazon (the last restock went in minutes) we feel that having an Amazon Prime membership is going to be the only way to get one going forward.


    Target restock soon?

    It feels like we've been saying this for weeks now, but there's still a reasonable indication that Target will hold a PS5 restock very soon. We've seen through regular updates from restock tracker Jake Randall that the number of PS5 consoles arriving at Target stores is increasing. With that in mind, there's a good chance they'll finally be available to buy this week.


    GameStop in-store restock expected March 11

    New information provided to Matt Swider at The Shortcut suggests that GameStop will hold an in-store PS5 restock this Friday, March 11. It will be available exclusively to PowerUp Pro rewards members.

    The leaked memo shows that a single PS5 Disc bundle will be available. It includes a PS5 console, Gran Turismo 7: 25th Anniversary Edition, Horizon Forbidden West: Limited Edition, PowerA DualSense Charging Station, Hyper X Cloud Headset and a $50 PSN voucher. Add that all together at full price and it puts the cost of the bundle at around $800. It's a very expensive one, then.

    Other information given to Swider shows that there will be very limited availability, but this bundle will be in stock at more stores than normal. Perhaps good news if you've missed out in the past if your local store is included, but it does mean you need to get there bright and early for the opening time in order to have the best chance.


    Game and Argos restocks - here's everything we know

    Information suggests that PS5 restocks are coming to Game and Argos over the next two weeks. Here's everything we know so far.

    Game: A short while ago, Game updated its PS5 bundles page with a new release date of March 25. This placeholder date is not when consoles will be available to buy, but is the latest date they expect consoles to be shipped to buyers. With that in mind, it seems most likely that the next PS5 restock at Game will be between March 15-18.

    Argos: This information comes from stock tracker PS5 Stock UK on Twitter. They received a tip-off that PS5 Disc and Digital consoles would be arriving at Argos stores this week. So, after allowing some time for them to be processed, the expectation is the consoles will be available to buy at the end of this week or early next week. Previous restocks at Argos have taken place in the early hours, so if you're up it's one to follow from March 9.


    PS5 restock at Very this week? It's a possibility

    There's no concrete information on this, but based on previous restock timings there's a chance we could see PS5 consoles at Very this week. The retailer's last PS5 restock was way back on February 8, so a month-long gap between them is about the right kind of wait. With consoles expected at Game and Argos over the next two weeks, as well, it would fit that Very holds a PS5 restock in a similar window. It's definitely one to keep an eye on from 9am tomorrow just in case we get a nice surprise.
