Game is tipped to roll out its biggest ever PS5 restock starting today, Friday 4th June, as predicted by trusted stock watcher PS5Instant.
“Slight delay due to fact #XboxSeriesX & #PS5stock shipments came roughly the same time. GAME dropped late as 1:30pm in the past. But likely tomorrow [Friday 4th] or start of next week [Monday 7th],” reads the tipster’s most recent tweet.
The drop was originally slated for yesterday but it sounds as it could be set for this morning between 8am and 10am. That could be good news for anyone trying to figure out where to buy a PS5 right now.
Keep a close eye on Game’s PS5 listings page today – the consoles could start dropping any moment now. The specialist retailer is said to be sitting on 12,000 Sony PlayStation 5 consoles in the UK (62% disc; 38% digital).

The PS5 is here and it offers next-gen gaming, 3D audio and an innovative DualSense controller that helps immerse you in the action. The standard PS5 plays 4K Blu-ray discs but there’s also the option of the cheaper (disc-less) PS5 Digital Edition.
Game isn’t the only UK retailer tipped for a PS5 restock this week.
Amazon released a huge PS5 restock yesterday but has now sold out. There’s talk of another wave from Amazon today, Friday 4th June. Fingers crossed.
High street favourite John Lewis could drop a smaller batch of consoles on Tuesday 8th June, and Smyths Toys is tipped for a wave of PS5s between the 3rd and 5th June. The latter is known for releasing stock on Fridays, so Friday 4th June could be a good bet.
Further ahead, Argos is rumoured to be readying a PS5 restock for between the 21st and 24th June. It typically drops between 1am – 4am BST.
With UK retailers finding it impossible to keep up with demand for the PS5, Sony has revealed plans to take charge of the matter. The Japanese giant says it will launch its PlayStation Direct online store in Europe ‘within the fiscal year’.
In the meantime, today’s predicted Game drop could be your best chance of buying a PS5 this Summer. See PS5 stock on Game.
