Will this finally be the day you secure a console?

(The Independent)

Update: CurrysSmyths ToysJohn Lewis & Partners and Asda have yet to drop stock this month. Could they restock before February? Read on for more information.

2022 looks to be one of the most promising years for PS5 gamers, with upcoming titles such as Elden RingSifuHorizon: Forbidden WestGran Turismo 7 and maybe even the PS5 VR2 headset coming in the next few months. But what of the PS5 itself?

Well, we’re sad to say that customers are still struggling to get their hands on a PS5 console due to the ongoing global semiconductor shortage, which has had a big impact on supply chains for over a year now.

Sony’s Playstation 5 was released in November 2020 and even though we’re now in 2022, demand for the console is still high. January has been one of the slowest months for restocks on record, but we have seen a handful of restocks from PlayStation DirectGameBT , AmazonVery and AO, indicating that things are starting to pick up again.

Our liveblog is here to get you one of Sony’s elusive next-gen consoles, as well as provide you with the details on the best games and accessories to grab alongside your new console. If you want to find out which online retailers will be the first to restock, then keep scrolling to receive updates as they happen.

Game PS5 stock could drop next week

(The Independent)

There’s a good chance that the PS5 could drop at Game next week or the week after. The retailer updated its PS5 bundles page with new release dates of 18 February. This hints that another restock could happen in early February.

Drops at the retailer usually take place one to two weeks before the stated release date, so we could see a drop between either 1-3 February or 8-10 February next week. So there shouldn’t be long left to wait now.

Game has a huge number of bundles available but rarely sells the console online as a standalone purchase. You’ll have to go in-store if you want one of those.

PS Plus February 2022

Before we get started with the stock tracking, the free PS4 and PS5 games in February for PS Plus subscribers have been announced and, uh,they don’t look the best, if we’re honest.

The games didn’t leak ahead of time this month and perhaps that’s because the free ones that have been announced aren’t stellar. The PS5 game on offer is the themepark builder Planet Coaster: Console Edition, which weirdly has a PS4 release but this isn’t also free.

On the PS4 front, you’ve got the Borderlands-inspired Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep: A Wonderlands One-shot Adventure as well as mixed martial arts fighting gameEA Sports UFC 4 . Unsurprisingly, none of these games appear on our best PS4 games or PS5 games round-ups.

This new PS5 feature is finally rolling out

Being able to access screenshots and videos that you’ve captured on your PS5 from your smartphone has long been a feature promised by Sony. And now it seems like it’s slowly rolling out.

So far, we’ve only seen a select few people gain access to this feature – mainly from the US, but we’ll let you know if it rolls out more widely.

When was the last ShopTo PS5 restock?

Electronics specialist ShopTo had two drops in December, making it the best independent store to buy a PS5 from last month. That said, it hasn’t restocked at all in January, and a lot of people like ShopTo restocks because they always take place on the weekend.

Bizarrely, ShopTo tweeted a restock announcement on 30 December, but it quickly deleted the tweet before most people could see it. We thought that this meant that a restock was about to take place, but nada – we didn’t get a thing. Thankfully, the folks over on the @PS5UKStock Discord server grabbed a screenshot before it was deleted. Could it restock this weekend? We’ll have to wait and see.

PS Plus games February 2022

This has to be one of the first months where the PS Plus games haven’t leaked ahead of time. Usually we know what free games subscribers will be getting at least a week before they’re announced, but nope, not this time. We’ve heard nothing.

We don’t have long left to wait though. The free games for PS Plus subscribers for the PS4 and PS5 games are expected to be unveiled today at 4.30pm. Let’s hope they’re good!
