On the hunt for the PS5? Here’s where you can buy it today

(The Independent)

Update 23 June: The PS5 is in stock for BT customers at the BT Shop. It is also in stock at Hughes, Studio and The Game Collection. Read on for more information.

Since launching in 2020, the PlayStation 5 has been notoriously difficult to get hold of. Supply chain issues stemming from the global pandemic have brought production of Sony’s latest games console to a standstill.

Thankfully, the situation has improved in recent months. The PS5 was pretty much in stock throughout the entire month of May, with Game leading the charge. We had nearly 108 restocks across the month – the most we’ve ever seen since Sony released the console. And as we approach the end ofJune, the month has so far continued this momentum, with GameEE and the BT Shop being in stock for much of the last few weeks.

Saying that, buying a console on its own is still more difficult than picking up a bundle, with standalone consoles selling out in the blink of an eye, while digital consoles (bundles included) have been non-existent. But we’re here to help, whether you’re after a bundle or the standalone PS5 disc and PS5 digital edition consoles.

Still hunting down the elusive PlayStation 5? Our goal is to secure you a next-gen machine, as well as provide you with the details on the best games and accessories to grab alongside your new console, plus the latest game reviews.

If you want to find out which online retailers will be the first to restock, then keep scrolling to receive updates as they happen.

Can you buy a PS5 at Argos

Argos is sold out of the PlayStation 5. Sorry. We wish it wasn’t the case, but it is.

The retailer occasionally receives a smattering of PS5 stock dotted about random branches up and down the country, making it hard to predict where Sony’s console might pop up next. When it does appear in stock it tends to sell out quickly, so we’d recommend using the Argos app to purchase the console. For reasons beyond the expertise of this humble stock tracking liveblog, the Argos app seems to get priority over the website when it comes to popular, fast-selling items.

Hughes has a PS5 bundle in stock

The cheapest PS5 bundle at Hughes this morning comes with Sackboy, FIFA 22, an extra controller, the PS5 media remote and a charging dock.

That little lot will set you back £669.94, which is a big reason why it’s one of the few places with consoles still in stock right now. The PlayStation 5 by itself costs £449.99. The version without a disc drive costs £349.99.

The PS5 is in stock at Studio

If you’re after a PlayStation 5 without any accessories or games, turn away now because there’s more bundle fun at Studio.

The online retailer is selling the official PlayStation 5 + Horizon Forbidden West with an extra dualsense controller and a copy of Gran Turismo 7 . The racing simulator features split-screen local multiplayer, so that extra contoller will come in handy next time you’ve got friends round.

The Game Collection has this expensive PS5 bundle in stock

The Game Collection lives up to its name with a game-rammed bundle packed with next-gen titles that we’d ordinarily recommend anyway.

It’s a PS5 disc edition bundle and comes with Elden Ring Launch Edition, Deathloop, Back 4 Blood, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Immortals Fenyx Rising, Watch Dogs Legion, Fortnite, The Last Laugh Bundle and Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate.

It costs an eye-watering £759.95, which isn’t too bad when you consider the sheer amount of stuff you get.

How do you get a PS5 from BT?

The PS5 has been in stock at the BT Shop for an entire month now, and it’s supply of consoles doesn’t seem to be waning. It has also consistently had the cheapest console bundle in stock for weeks on end, sometimes being surpassed by retailers with the standalone disc or digital console.

Why? Well, it’s probably because BT locks its consoles behind a heavy metal door, which can only be unlocked by BT Broadband customers with an access code. That’s right, if you’re not a sacred Broadband customer, tough luck, you won’t be able to buy the console.

You can buy the PS5 disc edition console with Horizon Forbidden West for £449.99 (Bt.com), and you can find an access code on the MyBT portal.

Live blog signing off

As we bring another day of PS5 hunting to a close, it appears that consoles are still available at Argos, but only in some regions of the UK. We can also see that The Game Collection’s massive £760 PS5 bundle is still available, and consoles with Horizon Forbidden West are still in stock at the BT Shop, but these are exclusively available to existing BT customers.

As ever, we’ll be back tomorrow for another day of PS5 restock live-blogging.

The best 4K TV for your new PS5

While we wait for the next PS5 restock, it’s time to think about upgrading your television. The PS5 outputs video at 4K resolution and can even handle games running at 120 frames per second. That’s something not all TVs can manage, so if you want to see your new console running at its best, a new TV could be worthwhile.

We’ve rounded up nine of the best 4K TVs available right now, from manufacturers including Samsung, LG, Sony and Panasonic, among others. And the great news is you don’t need to spend a fortune to get a great 4K television – prices of our favourites start at under £400.
