GAME is tipped to be launching its next PS5 restock shortly. The high street retailer’s website was updated this week in advance of its next PS5 restock. And it looks like the PlayStation 5 could be available to buy once again in the UK at the start of August.
The GAME website lists its next batch of PS5 stock as available for pre-order with a release date of August 20.
And, according to the @PS5UKStock Twitter account, the next GAME PS5 restock could be going live in the middle of next week.
The @PS5UKStock Twitter posted: “GAME have updated their listings to show a delivery date of 20th August with a high chance of this going live mid next week.”
In terms of a restock time, GAME typically opens orders for the PS5 between 9am and 11am.
So we could see the PS5 become available to order during that time slot in the middle of the week beginning Monday August 2.
At the time of writing, GAME has listed 27 different purchase options for its next PS5 restock.
This includes standalone PS5 Disc and Digital consoles as well as bundles.
The cheapest PS5 Digital bundle is priced at £389.98 and this includes a PS5 Digital Edition console, T-shirt and cap.
Hitting the 10million sales marker already means the PS5 is the fastest selling PlayStation console ever.
Announcing the news in a blog post, Veronica Rogers – SVP of global sales and business operations – said: “We are thrilled to announce that as of July 18th, 2021, we have sold more than 10 million PlayStation 5 consoles globally. This makes PS5 the fastest-selling console in the history of Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) and we couldn’t be more excited about the amazing response of our fans.”
While speaking to Reuters, SIE boss Jim Ryan said: “We’ve built more PlayStations faster than we ever have before which makes me happy. But on the other hand, we’re some time from being able to meet all the demand that’s out there, which makes me feel bad.
“Our partners are performing really well for us, but the chip shortage is definitely a challenge that we are all navigating”.
