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

So far this year has been good to anyone looking for where to buy a PS5. There has been a significant increase in the number of PS5 restocks throughout 2022, which means your chance of getting Sony's latest console is better than ever before. Sure, Sony has said there will still be stock shortages throughout the year, but recent months show it could be less of a struggle to buy a PS5 in 2022. If you're still looking, join us right here for all the latest restock info as well as news and regular updates from all the top retailers.

After following PS5 restocks since the console originally launched back in November 2020, we've got a solid idea of when each retailer will have consoles available to buy. Generally, it's about once or twice a month right now, but the PS5 can still sell out incredibly quickly. Restock events in the US at the likes of Amazon and Walmart go in a matter of minutes. Those in the UK usually get anywhere from a few hours to a couple of days to buy one depending on the retailer, the number of consoles in stock or the quality of bundles available.

So, timing is still key. Because of that, no matter when or where the PS5 is in stock, we aim to deliver that information to you right here as soon as possible. We might not be able to cover everything at all times, but our aim is to give you the most up-to-date PS5 restock info at a glance, as well as a long list of retailers and when they might have availability next that you can check at any time.

PS5 Restock: Retailers to check this week
  • US: No PS5 restocks currently rumoured or announced
  • US: Check Target daily for potential PS5 stock at local stores
  • UK: PS5 bundles available at BT and EE for existing customers
  • UK: Latest Amazon restock sells out in an hour
  • Amazon (US/UK): check stockWe don't have any concrete information yet regarding any PS5 restocks but you can check back for any updates right here.

    Target (US): check stock dailyTarget has changed the way it sells the PS5 now. Instead of a scheduled major restock every few weeks it will now put the PS5 on sale at select stores each morning. That makes it very difficult to predict availability, so your best option is to check each morning in case the console is available to buy.

    BT Shop (UK): PS5 bundles available for existing customersIf you're an existing BT customer you should log in to your account and check under the 'Your Offers' section for an access code that will allow you to buy a PS5 from the BT Shop. A handful of PS5 bundles with extra accessories or PS Plus memberships are still available right now.

    EE (UK): buy the PS5 as part of a new or existing planMobile and broadband network EE will allow you to add a PS5 to your contract if you are a new or existing customer. You simply pay a part of the cost upfront and then pay off the rest of the console bundle over the next 11 months on top of your existing monthly bill.

    Where to buy the PS5 in the US

    The US stores below carry PS5 and Digital Edition consoles regularly. We update this list as soon as we get news of an upcoming restock with the announced (or rumoured) time and date so you can be best prepared to bag a console.

    Where to buy the PS5 in the UK

    Check the quick links below to find out which retailers hold PS5 restocks in the UK. Consoles are regularly available at least every couple of weeks and tend to stay in stock for up to six hours at a time now, so your chances of getting a PS5 have increased considerably in recent months.

    While PS5 restocks are now more frequent and it's become a lot easier to buy the PS5, it can still be a stressful and frustrating experience. In order to get you prepared in the best way possible, we've answered many of the most common questions about PS5 restocks below. We've also dropped in our top tips based on over a year's worth of hunting PS5 consoles in order to give you the best chance of getting one.

    How to buy PS5: top tipsHow often is the PS5 available to buy?

    It can vary depending on region and various other unseen factors but we generally see PS5 restocks at retailers about once or twice a month. That's just on average, though. At some stores it can be as often as every two weeks or at others as infrequent as every two months.

    Essentially, it's still far from regular even over a year from the launch of the console. That said, some retailers have settled into a fairly predicating rhythm that allows us to give you a solid idea of when to be ready to buy. Others have taken to announcing when their next PS5 restock will take place so it's less of a guessing game. Either way, we cover all the latest PS5 restock news, rumours and announcements at TechRadar to give you the best chance possible of securing a console.

    Should you buy a PS5 today?

    The PS5 is still hard to find at a moment's notice so if you've got your eye on one for the near future or as a gift for someone soon then our suggestion is to buy it as soon as possible - especially if you're in the US.

    While PS5 restocks are certainly more frequent this year, the console still doesn't stay available for very long and it's best to get one while you can rather than missing out on the opportunity. We definitely want to emphasise this for those in the US as PS5 restocks still sell out in a matter of minutes at most retailers there. Restricting sales to specific retailer membership programs has helped to curb the scalpers but it still requires speed, timing and a bit of luck to buy a console.

    However, if you're in no rush and would perhaps prefer to wait for any PS5 bundle deals then you can hold off for now. It might not be some time until the discounts you're looking for are available in stores but who knows what the situation might look like in a few months' time or closer to Black Friday.

    How much does a PS5 cost?

    The PS5 costs $499 (£449 / AU$749.95) - which is the same price as Microsoft's Xbox Series X. The cheaper PS5 Digital Edition is priced at $399.99 (£359.99 / AU$599.95). It's almost guaranteed that both versions of the console will remain at this price for some time. Demand is still astronomically high for the console and Sony sees no reason to discount it for the time being.

    Should you buy the PS5 or PS5 Digital Edition?

    There are two versions of Sony's latest console: so how do you know whether to buy the PS5 or PS5 Digital Edition? Well, there's one major difference between the two - outside of the price.

    The PS5 Digital Edition does not include a disc drive so no physical copies of games can be played on the console and you will have to buy all of your games digitally. All purchases have to be made through the official PSN Store. You will, however, still be able to play old PS4 games as long as you bought a digital copy. With that in mind, if you've fully embraced the digital revolution and are looking to save on the upfront cost of the console then the PS5 Digital Edition may be right for you. 

    For most, though, we'd suggest sticking with the standard PS5 as it has the added flexibility with the included disc drive. The other major sticking point with the PS5 Digital Edition is that Sony manufactures far fewer of them compared to the normal PS5. When retailers restock the consoles, then, you often have a considerably smaller chance of getting a Digital Edition - if they even have this version on sale in the first place.
