Update to replenish PS5 console stock in the US
For today, January 16, 2022, Ebay is once again the go-to site for PS5s now in stock. Users will definitely need to filter by “Buy it now” and “Newly Listed” to find the good deals. Implementing a price cap is also recommended as it helps filter out scalpers.
New drops at US retailers are expected next week. 2022 was consistent with weekly restocks so fingers crossed this continues. The proven reliable inventory tracker @PS5restocks_etc tweeted his confidence that both PS5 and Xbox Series X will be restocked in “the next few days”.

Which UK stores have PS5 stock today, January 16?
BT store remains the best place to get UK PS5 stock. Unfortunately, for those with another ISP, this deal is only available to BT Broadband customers.
Do you have a BT Broadband account? then head here to view the available PS5 consoles and PS5 bundles. At the time of writing, there are still a few in stock.
For those who don’t have a BT Broadband account, Argos is the one to keep an eye out for in the coming weeks, with stock expected between January 25-28. This is shown by @PS5StockAlertUK, which is another reliable stock tracker.
eBay is also an option. For those who take the time to filter through the hundreds of scalper listings, PS5s can currently be found for just £50-80 above MSRP. That’s not a terrible premium when you consider scalper prices. That said, many of these good deals are listed as “Used” or “Refurbished”, so won’t be brand new. It is always worth contacting the seller of these types of offers, asking about the system warranty and whether the console has been opened at all.
