How and where to preorder a PS5
Sony recently opened the preorders for the PS5, but a mad rush for the next-gen console has meant there is very little stock still remaining.
We’ll be updating this article frequently to let you know where and when you’ll be able to preorder the PS5.
How to a preorder a PS5
The PS5 was initially available in retailers such as Amazon, Currys/PC World, Game and Smyths, but stock run out very quickly.
Argos opened up preorders for the upcoming console this morning, but stock has already run out. Don’t worry though, as there’s still a decent chance more stock wiill become available before launch.
For example, Game UK has seen issues sending out email confirmations for completed PS5 orders, resulting in many people panicking and ordering another unit from another retailer. With the Game UK Twitter account today clarifying that email confirmations could be sent out today, many people may well be cancelling their backup preorder, and therefore freeing up more stock. We’ll keep you updated on the situation.
The PS5 is priced at £449, while the digital model (which is the same console, but without a disk drive) is available at a more affordable £359 price point. There are also a number of PS5 accessories included, including the DualSense (£59.99), Charging Station, HD Camera, Media Remote and Pluse 3D headset.
The PS5 is confirmed to release on 19 November in the UK, so if you preorder you should be able to start playing on launch day.
The PS5 will come with Astro’s Playroom installed, which is a cutesy 3D platformer featuring the little robot that made its debut on the PSVR. Other launch games include Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Demon’s Souls.

It’s also been revealed that the PS5 will give free next-gen facelifts to select PS4 games, including the Witcher 3, Borderlands 3 and Destiny 2. Not every PS4 game is guaranteed to get a similar upgrade, as it’s up to the developers to decide. There are also exceptions such as Control, which will only see a next-gen upgrade if you own the Ultimate Edition.
