The PS5 launched in November 2020, but supply issues and a global chip shortage have slowed production of Sony’s next-gen console. New stock is always hard to find, and when it does show up, the PS5 sells out almost instantly.

Although not as good as in August, we still saw some big drops in Very, BT, EE, Argos, Amazon, Smyths Toys and Game. We had 10 drops to complete the month of September. The question now is: will October be good? He doesn’t look too peachy yet. This month we only saw online restockings of AO.com, BT, and ShopTo, with Game join the gang yesterday. plus an in-store discount at Smyths Toys.

Well, it was another calm day for PS5 restocking. While Amazon got us all excited in the morning when he randomly updated his PS5 listing page, he finally let us all down, leaving us empty-handed and without PS5.

When will Currys receive a new PS5 delivery?
Exchanged a Curries PS5 VIP code recently? According to @ PS5StockAlertUK, the retailer is expected to receive a new shipment of consoles on October 24, and it will be reserved for those who have already redeemed a VIP code.
If this is the first time you’ve heard of the Currys VIP code system, the retailer was basically running a raffle where customers could win a ticket to buy a PS5. It closed to new entrants in June, but people who signed up then still receive codes every two weeks.

Why is the PS5 disc edition easier to find than the digital version?
This is something you might have noticed if you’ve been trying to hunt down the PS5 for as long as we’ve been doing – there always seems to be more disc editing consoles available than digital editions. Why?
One of the reasons is, of course, the price – publishing the record costs more, so retailers can theoretically make a bit more money selling them. The second reason is a little more obscure.
When Eurogamer talked to sources at various retailers prior to the console’s launch, retailers told the website that they received around 25% from digital edition consoles and 75% from disc edition consoles.
It is not known if the situation has changed since then, but we expect the disc edition to continue to be more plentiful than the digital version.

Could the PS5 still drop on Amazon this morning?
Amazon, you brazen devil. Although the retailer updated their PS5 listing this morning, we’re sad to say that it now seems unlikely to abandon the console today, just depending on the time of day.
Amazon rarely drops the PS5 beyond 10:30 a.m. Plus, it hardly ever drops consoles on a Thursday or Friday either, so we’re now planning a drop on October 19 or 20 instead.
We will never say never though. We have too often been burned by these unexpected drops that appear out of nowhere.
