Update to replenish PS5 console stock in the US

Today, January 18, 2022, there is another opportunity for avid customers to register their interest in purchasing a PS5 directly from PlayStation. PSN members in the US, UK, Germany, France, Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg can register here to show their interest. Make sure you have email notifications turned on so you don’t miss the crucial message, as the stock certainly won’t hang around!

eBay is another option for those looking to buy a PS5 straight away. While there are many offers from greedy people who charge extortionate prices, there are also some better deals to be had. Filter by “Buy It Now” and “New Listing” to find the best deals. It’s also worth using a price cap to avoid showing ridiculous offers.

New PS5 drops are also expected at US retailers this week. Every week of 2022 has been replenished so far and the proven @PS5restocks_etc seems confident in replenishing the stock in “the next few days”.

US PS5 accessory restock update

For those in the UK: The best place to buy a PS5 today, January 18, is eBay. However, UK PSN members can register their interest in purchasing a PS5 directly from the PlayStation website here.

As mentioned, Ebay is worth checking out as long as you implement filters to avoid the ridiculously high scalper prices. Sorting by “Buy it now” and “New offers”, as well as using a price cap, will help to break the awful deals. At the time of writing, “Used” and “Refurbished” PS5s are selling for £50-80 above MSRP. That’s okay, provided you can verify that the seller hasn’t voided the system warranty and that there’s nothing wrong with the console.

According to @PS5StockAlertUKArgos is the one to keep an eye on in the coming weeks as the stock is expected between January 25-28. Stay tuned for an update on this as soon as we know more.
