Where to buy the PS5 in the UK: Stock levels remain dry in the New Year

The PS5 released back in November 2019, and stock of the next-gen console has been almost nonexistent ever since, with those who didn’t secure one at launch struggling to find Sony’s console at the majority of retailers.

Sadly, even in the midst of January, the situation hasn’t changed very much. Many retailers have said they are expecting stock this month, although this will likely run out in a matter of minutes once the alarm bells have been sounded. 

As for physical retailers, the ongoing lockdown ensures that securing them anywhere CEX is impossible, and you’d pay a much higher price for the privilege. Trusted Reviews has compiled all the places you can buy a PS5 right now, but don’t get your hopes up.
