The PS5 arrived in the UK over a year ago, on November 19 2020, but huge demand, supply problems and a global semiconductor shortage have caused the production of Sony’s new game console to slow to a near-standstill. New stock is still tricky to find, and when it does appear the PS5 sells out almost immediately, both online and in shops.
October got off to a very slow start. We saw just four retailers restock with PS5 consoles in the first two weeks. But towards the end of the month we were treated to nine massive drops from Asda, Studio, John Lewis & Partners, Very, Littlewoods, Argos, Hamleys, Game and AO.com. We then saw more restocks from BT, EE, Argos, Amazon and Game. As we pass the PS5’s one-year anniversary and head towards the end of 2021, let’s just hope the rest of November can regain October’s momentum and deliver the goods.
