The PS5 is has officially back in stock at Game today, Thursday 21st October, as predicted by @PS5StockAlertUK. Head over to the Game listings page now to join the virtual queue for PS5s.

"This morning, we will be going live with a selection of PlayStation 5 Disc consoles", reads Game's Twitter page. "PlayStation 5s continue to be in very high demand and that demand far outweighs current supply." 

Game typically drops around 9.30am UK time, and then again around 1pm. Go for bundles, the pricier ones usually hang around the longest. 

With Christmas and Black Friday just around the corner, the PS5 shortage likely won't be easing, but there's no need to panic.

Amazon is overdue a PS5 drop, too. 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).

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.
