Where to buy the PS5 in the UK right now: All the retailers expecting stock at launch

The PS5 is finally here, and the console is currently gold dust at the majority of retailers with stock levels being supremely low or almost non-existent right now. 

We’re not surprised, with demand seemingly outweighing that of Microsoft’s Xbox Series X. Pre-orders vanished in a matter of moments back in September, before resurfacing a handful of times in recent months at select places. 

But what about getting on the bandwagon right now, is it possible to secure a PS5 for launch day if you failed to secure a pre-order? Chances are slim, but we’ve rounded up all of the major retailers alongside information on their current stock levels to make this easier.

Where can I buy a PS5 right now?

Unfortunately, if you don’t have a pre-order secured, it remains unclear when stock levels for the PS5 will return to normality. With the festive period approaching, it’s likely the next-gen console will remain in high demand for many months to come. 

We’ve compiled all of the major retailers below alongside their current stock information. Sadly, the picture is looking a bit bleak, but there’s always a chance that things will improve. However, Amazon UK and John Lewis have said that they will have limited amounts of launch day stock, and Currys PC World has announced they will have some available, with 80.000 people already waiting in the website queue.
