Sony has a ‘gigantic list of things’ they want to bring to PS5 through firmware updates

PS5 now available at BT for customers. AO restock just sold out. Read on for more information.

The PS5 launched in November 2020, but supply problems and a global semiconductor shortage caused the production of Sony’s next-generation console to slow to a crawl. New stock is still difficult to find, and when it does appear the PS5 sells out almost instantly.

September was a fairly mixed bag for PS5 restocks, but was still much better than June and July. Although not as good as August, we still saw some hefty drops at VerySmyths ToysBT, EE, ArgosAmazon and Game. We had 10 drops to end the month of September. The question now, is, will October kick off with a bang?

If you’re still on the lookout for a PS5, you’ve come to the right place. Our liveblog is on hand to give you the latest insight on Playstation 5 restocks from all major UK retailers, both online and in-store, as well as providing details on rumoured releases, the latest PS5 games and accessories to snap up.

Can you play PS4 games on PS5?

While we wait for more PS5 stock to drop, it’s worth reminding you that the vast majority of PS4 games are possible to play on the PS5.

As far as digital versions of games are concerned, you’ll be able to buy them via PlayStation Store on your PS4 and later download and play them on PS5.

If you’ve got the disc edition of the PS5, you’ll also be able to insert your PS4 discs into it and play them that way, too.

It goes without saying this only applies to the disk version of the PS5, as the digital edition does not have a physical disc slot.

We’ve put together a list of our favourite PS4 games, most of which have dropped in price since the PS5 came out.

PS5 now sold out at AO

AO’s PS5 restock is now officially sold out.

This is the second PS5 drop for AO in October, and it’s good to see the online retailer restocking twice in the first week of the month.

Did you manage to get your hands on a shiny new PS5?

We hope you did, but if not, don’t worry, as the console is still available to purchase for BT customers on the company’s website.

How to get a PS5 voucher code from BT

BT is helping customers secure a PS5 whenever new stock drops

(PA Media)

BT is trying to give its customers an extra hand to secure a PS5 console.

To avoid website overloads that often happens on other online retailers when PS5 stock drops, BT sends out unique voucher codes to its customers.

If you are a BT TV customer or a BT Sport subscriber, for instance, you can apply to receive a PS5 voucher code.

The codes are emailed out quite rarely, but once you receive one, you’ll be able to use it to purchase a PS5 next time the BT store has a restock.

You still have to pay the regular price for it, but using one of these codes will certainly give your an edge when trying to secure a PS5 console.

John Lewis’ PS5 restock possibly postponed

An additional Twitter post from PS5 Stock UK seems to hint the upcoming PS5 drop originally scheduled for this week may have actually occurred last week.

If that’s the case, we may only see a new PS5 stock available from John Lewis next week.

In any case, we’ll update the blog with any micro-restocks or last-minute drops from the high-end department store.

PS5 available at AO

Here’s a reminder of our top tip for AO – this only works on Google Chrome on the desktop.

Copy the PS5’s product ID and save it somewhere safe.

Navigate to a random item on AO’s website.

Right-click on the ‘Buy now’ button on the random item and click ‘Inspect Element’. In the element inspector, replace the product’s ID with the PS5’s product ID.

Are you on the hunt for an Xbox series X as well?

(The Independent)

Generally speaking, the PS5 has been easier to get than the Xbox Series X, which saw fewer restocks in the UK in the last few months.

The less powerful Xbox series S, on the other hand, is widely available from a number of retailers, including Amazon, Currys, and Argos.

When will ShopTo restock the PS5?

ShopTo last restocked the PS5 on 18 September, and before that on 12 September, 8 September, and 5 September.

The video games retailer had also three PS5 drops in August, and two in July.

According to these figures, it looks like PS5 availability from ShopTo has been increasing steadily throughout the past few months.

While this does not guarantee a PS5 drop today, we will make sure to let you know if it happens.

When will John Lewis restock the PS5?

John Lewis last restocked the PS5 on 28 September, and before that on 24 September.

The retailer was not particularly active in August, with only a single restock at the start of the month.

New rumours, however, suggest John Lewis may receive a number of PS5 consoles on October 15, both disc and digital editions.

According to the official Twitter account of PS5 Stock UK, some of the new consoles may even drop before next week.
