Looking for Sony’s next-gen console? Here’s where to buy it

(The Independent)

July 5 update: PS5 bundles in stock at John Lewis and partnersthe BT Shop, curries and EE for existing EE customers. PS5 could restock at Game this week. Read on for more information.

Since its launch in 2020, the PlayStation 5 has been very difficult to obtain. Supply chain issues resulting from the global pandemic have all but halted production of Sony’s latest games console.

Fortunately, things have improved in recent months. The PS5 was pretty much in stock throughout May and June, with Game and the BT shop, as well as several independent retailers like The game collection lead the charge. We expect this flurry of console restocks to continue throughout the summer. With Amazon Prime Day on the horizon, we’re also paying close attention to the tech giant’s website this week.

Although restocks are becoming more regular, buying a console on its own is still more difficult than picking up a bundle, with standalone consoles selling out in the blink of an eye, while digital consoles (bundles included) have been non-existent. But we’re here to help, whether you’re looking for a bundle or the standalone PS5 Disc and PS5 Digital Edition consoles.

Are you still looking for the elusive PlayStation 5? Our aim is to guarantee you a next-gen machine, as well as provide you with details on the best games and accessories to grab with your new console, as well as the latest game reviews.

Will there be a PlayStation 5 Slim?

There should be no doubt that it will, but of course it’s only a matter of time. Reports have noted that given its previous track record, the company will launch a slimmer version of the console in 2023 or 2024, which is around three years after the PS5 was released. We will of course keep you informed as soon as we have any news.

Can you play PS4 games on the PS5?

Yes you can! The vast majority of PS4 games you own are playable on the PS5. You’ll be able to download any games you’ve purchased through the PlayStation Store onto your PS4 and play them on the next-gen console.

If you have the PS5 Disc Edition, you will also be able to insert your PS4 discs there and play them that way as well. Obviously, since there’s no physical disc slot on the digital console edition, you won’t be able to play any PS4 discs you own. We’ve compiled a list of our favorite PS4 games, and most of them have dropped in price since the PS5 was released.

Smyths PS5 Restock News

Smyths Toys last had an online restock on May 25 at 10am. So if you’re wondering when he’ll make his next delivery, you’re not alone. But, judging by the retailer’s website, PS5 stock is expected at some point this month (we know, not very specific). With that in mind, we’ll be checking Smyths Toys very regularly to make sure you’re kept up to date.

When will Amazon restock the PS5?

(The Independent)

Amazon the latter had a restock of the Disc Editing Console on June 21 and the Digital Editing Console on the same date. Both times the stock sold out in less than an hour. The retailer usually releases the PS5 Disc Edition before the PS5 Digital Edition, so be aware if you see one live before the other.

On July 14, 2021, Amazon made the console exclusively available to Prime members for the first time, which could be useful in combating scalping bots in the future. Since then, the console has only been available to Prime customers.

As it stands, we’re not sure when exactly Amazon will restock, but our best advice is to make sure you’re a Prime member – you can sign up for a 30 day free trial.

In case you didn’t already know, Sony has a new virtual reality headset on the way. It was designed to work exclusively with the PS5 and is called PlayStation VR2. The tech giant hasn’t yet announced when it will release the new device, but we’d guess it will be in the fall.

The next PS5 games to look forward to in 2022, from Stray to The Last Of Us Part I

If you haven’t gotten your hands on the all-new console yet, we recommend getting one now. The PS5 is available to buy now from John Lewis & Partners (£629.99, Johnlewis.com).

But once you’ve ordered it, it’s time to think about what games you can play on it. And when it comes to options coming this year, there’s plenty to cheer about. For instance, Wander will be available from July 19, while The Last of Us Pat I will be launched in September.

For all the details on the new upcoming games, read our guide now:

Very Drops PS5 Horizon Bundle

PlayStation 5 and ‘Horizon Forbidden West’ Disc Console: £499.99, Very.co.uk

(Very)

And just like that, Very restocked a PS5 Horizon pack. As far as we can tell, this is currently the cheapest option if you’re looking to buy the brand new console. And you will also get Forbidden Horizon West, a game that has received praise from Jasper Pickering, our editor. He noted that it “takes great strides in its visual and narrative presentation” and is “one of the best looking PS5 games to date”.
