More PS5 stock could become available to buy at GAME in the coming days. The major UK retailer – who has been one of the best places to purchase a PlayStation 5 in 2021 – updated its PS5 page online in the run-up to Black Friday, which has given stock hunters an idea of when the next restock could be. And, according to the ever reliable @PS5StockAlertUK stock tracker account, it looks like the next PS5 restock at GAME could be pencilled in for Tuesday November 30 between 9am and 11.30am.
The @PS5StockAlertUK account posted: “GAME has updated its PS5 release date to 9/12. Stock Checker can see that Priority Insured deliveries will be shipped by 3/12, with all other deliveries shipped by 9/12. This indicates a possible stock drop on 30/11.”
GAME PS5 restocks in the past have typically dropped between 9am and 11.30am, so new stock – if it does become available that day – could go live at any point within that time period.
If you are hoping to buy a PlayStation 5 during the next GAME PS5 restock then there are a few things you need to know.
Firstly, while GAME PS5 restocks offer standalone PlayStation 5 Disc and Digital consoles to buy these tend to sell out the fastest.
So you’ll have a better chance of going after one of the many PS5 bundles that will be available.
Also, with past GAME restocks PS5 stock hunters have found that when they reached checkout, picking Guest instead of logging in with their GAME account has helped them save precious time and ensure their order goes through smoothly.
And finally, if you’re able to it’s best to tackle a PS5 GAME restock on multiple fronts.
So that means trying to access the GAME website on a variety of devices – so your smartphone, a tablet and / or a laptop.
The upcoming GAME restock follows a week where there have been a number of PS5 restocks in the UK.
During the week beginning Monday November 22 BT, Studio and EE all opened orders for the PlayStation 5 once again.
While the recently launched PlayStation Direct service for the UK had multiple PS5 restocks.
PS Direct restocks work differently to other stock drops. The PlayStation fans who get first dibs will have received an email from Sony informing them of the upcoming restock.
Invites are sent out to existing PSN users “based on past activity and interest shown in PlayStation”.
You will be able to purchase one PS5 Disc or Digitial console per PlayStation Network ID, plus a limited account of accessories.
Discussing a recent PS Direct restock, the @PS5StockAlertUK Twitter posted: “PlayStation Direct has sent another batch of exclusive emails for members to privately purchase any edition of PS5 consoles between 8-10am on 25th November. Non-invited members (public) may purchase after the exclusive drop ends.”
