BT has set out a fresh batch of PS5 VIP codes, according to multiple stock watchers. The digital codes allow lucky BT customers to purchase a PlayStation 5 from the company's online store. If you registered, check your email (and your spam) now.

As we reported a couple of weeks ago, the broadband and telephone supplier is offering customers the chance to register their interest in a PS5, Xbox Series X or new Nintendo Switch OLED. 

Not a BT customer? Amazon could drop PS5 restock as soon as tomorrow, 26th October, according to stock patterns. The world's biggest online retailer typically drops every two weeks, so tomorrow or Wednesday could be the sweet spot.

The PS5 is here and it offers next-gen gaming, 3D audio and an innovative DualSense controller that helps immerse you in the action. The standard PS5 plays 4K Blu-ray discs but there's also the option of the cheaper (disc-less) PS5 Digital Edition.

The world's largest retailer typically drops between 8–10am – but there's a catch. You have to be an Amazon Prime member if you want a piece of the PS5 restock action (here's a 30-day free Prime trial).

More next-gen PS5s are on the way.

EE has hinted that it has a PS5 restock ready. EE customers were asked to register their interest by 24th of October for details of the drop and how to add the PS5 to their monthly EE plan.

Like Amazon, John Lewis is overdue a PlayStation 5 restock. The high street giant is said to have 1000 consoles (700 disc; 300 Digital Edition) ready. They'll go in the blink of an eye, so check the company's website around 7am every morning.

Last week, Game released a bumper crop of PS5 consoles and warned scalpers it will use "strong measures" to stop multiple sales. Smyths Toys and Argos are currently sold out but we're expecting movement soon. 

Elsewhere, Apple Music is headed to the PS5
