For January 6, 2022, Target is absolutely the website that users want to be monitoring.

If you can spend the time monitoring the Target website during these hours, there’s a high chance that you will secure a PS5.

Which UK stores have PS5 stock for today, January 6?
Those on or considering an EE phone contract may want to check out the Sony section of the website. Here you can add a PS5 to your plan and, yes, they are in stock at the time of publishing this article.
For non-EE customers, eBay is still the best bet for UK PS5 stock. At the time of writing, refurbished consoles are selling with a slight premium over RRP. These are potentially unwanted gifts from the holiday season, so could be relatively new. Of course, if buying refurbished, it’s worth reaching out to the seller about the warranty status and if the PS5 has been opened up at all.
Search using “Buy It Now” and “Newly Listed” to find the most recent posts. Accompany this with a maximum price cap to find the best deals.
Those wondering when Amazon UK will be restocking PS5 systems will be sad to hear that there have been no reports about an upcoming drop. The last time the PS5 was in stock at Amazon UK was December 23, with lucky buyers securing deliveries for after Christmas.
