New PS5 deals are going live this week and could be the final drop of the month for gamers to try and buy a next-gen console.
Amazon will reportedly drop its next PS5 consoles soon, with the latest predictions suggesting it will happen on Tuesday or Wednesday.
The PS5 Amazon stock drop is expected to happen in the morning, but it should be noted that the company has not confirmed any official times yet.
This means that there could be delays or last-minute changes to the currently known schedule.
The news has been shared by leading stock tracker accounts, including the @PS5StockAlertUK Twitter account.
The latest information suggests that Amazon will start taking orders for the PS5 on Wednesday, August 25.
There is a slimmer chance that PlayStation 5 consoles will be available to buy on August 24 from the same pages.
The PS5 restock will reportedly happen between 8:30am BST and 12pm BST, with the bundle page going live at some point during this period.
Amazon is expected to have thousands of consoles for sale but it’s unclear at this time the exact amount that will be available.
Other separate predictions for PS5 UK stock drops can be found below:
- AO: 24th-27th (10am-1pm)
- ASDA: 24th-26th (8am-9am)
- John Lewis: 24th-26th (7am-8am)
- Scan: 27th (1pm-5:30pm)

They come with this disclaimer from @PS5stockUK: “Please note that these are predictions as stated in the title of the tweet, based on our PlayStation 5 restock experience, and do not guarantee a drop.”
Knowing when a PS5 restock is happening can be vital, but it’s also worth knowing how each retailer handles its shipments.
And here are a few examples of how best to try and buy a PlayStation 5 console from leading UK retailers:
AMAZON UK: Amazon UK runs better under strain but still comes with a few kinks worth mentioning. Having an account set up with your card details is a good start, and gamers should also try adding a console to their wishlist before checking out. More stock is expected between August 24 and August 25.
ARGOS: The Argos website is notorious for crashing and being unable to complete purchases when site traffic is high. Stock trackers suggest using the mobile Argos app and keeping an eye on local store listings.
GAME: GAME is a UK retailer that offers the most regular stock updates for PS5 consoles. However, console hunters have been warned to use Guest Checkout, as this option is less likely to crash when completing a purchase. The next PS5 stock is expected in September.
Demand remains very high for PS5 consoles in 2021, with retailers unable to keep up with demand.
Next-gen stock usually sells out within hours of being released, leaving many still waiting to buy one.
So far, the company has confirmed selling 10 million units globally, hitting the milestone on July 18 and this number is expected to grow as we head closer to the holiday season.
