Argos along with GAME have been two of the best places to purchase a PS5 in the UK in 2021, with restocks from both retailers sticking around for considerably longer than its peers. While that may not seem like much of a feat in some cases, given PS5 restocks have been known to sell out in less than a minute, both Argos and GAME restocks have managed to consistently get hefty amounts of new stock – with the last Argos restock reportedly around 20,000 consoles. That batch of new stock, which went live earlier this month, was Argos’s biggest restock so far and was reportedly double the size of previous deliveries of new consoles.
One reason Argos PlayStation 5 restocks may last longer than others is new stock gets dropped in the early hours of the morning, with the last batch of stock going live from 1am.
While that means gamers face a late night trying to get a PS5 order in, the plus side is that they can literally get hold of their shiny new PS5 hours after placing an order from Argos.
That’s because Argos, unlike other online stores, release new stock by location – with new consoles gamers buy available to collect from their nearby Argos store on the same day as purchase.
Sadly though, if you missed out on previous Argos restocks and were eagerly awaiting the next PS5 stock drop there’s some bad news.

The @PS5StockAlertUK stock tracker account has posted an update on when the next Argos PS5 restock will be. And unfortunately, according to the reliable Twitter account, the next PS5 restock at Argos looks pencilled in for the end of June.
The @PS5StockAlertUK Twitter posted: “News: Argos warehouse stock systems now show a new date (05/07/21) for PlayStation 5 shipment arrivals. These shipments usually arrive 1-2 weeks earlier, indicating a possible restock on 28th June. Going to be a silent 5 weeks with Argos. #PS5 #PS5UK #PS5Restock”.
The @PS5StockAlertUK Twitter has been bang on the money numerous times before, correctly revealing the date of the last Argos PS5 restock weeks in advance – before anyone else did. So if you were hoping to get hold of a PS5 from Argos in the next few weeks you’re set for disappointment.
That’s the bad news. The good news is we’ve just come off the back of another week of PS5 restocks.
Both GAME and Amazon all took orders for the PS5 once again this week, as did AO.com and John Lewis.
While Very is also expected to be getting a PS5 restock imminently, and Smyths Toys may also get a PS5 restock in May too.
These past few weeks have provided more joy for PS5 stock hunters in Blighty compared to the entirety of last month.
In April PlayStation 5 console restocks – bar one right at the end of the month at Smyths Toys – virtually dried up, with hardly any opportunites for gamers in the UK to purchase a PS5.
