US PS5 Console Restock Update
Today, January 18, 2022, there’s yet another opportunity for eager customers to register their interest in buying a PS5 directly from PlayStation. PSN members in the US, UK, Germany, France, Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg can register here to show their interest. Ensure you have email notifications on so that you don’t miss the crucial message, as stock will definitely not be hanging around!
Ebay is another option for those who want to buy a PS5 right now. While there are many listings from greedy folks charging extortionate premium prices, there are also some better deals to be had. Filter by “Buy It Now” and “Newly Listed” to find the hottest deals. It’s also worth using a price cap to stop any ridiculous listings from showing up.

Which UK stores have PS5 stock for today, January 18?
As mentioned, Ebay is worth a look, so long as you implement filters to avoid the ridiculously high scalper pricing. Sorting by “Buy It Now” and “New Listings,” as well as using a price limit, will help cut through the terrible deals. At the time of writing, “Used” and “Refurbished” PS5s are selling for £50-80 above RRP. That’s not too bad, provided you can verify the seller hasn’t voided the system’s warranty and that there is nothing wrong with the console.
According to @PS5StockAlertUK, Argos is the one to watch in the coming weeks, as stock is expected between January 25-28. Stay tuned for an update on that as soon as we learn more.
