Despite launching back in November 2019, it’s been extremely difficult to secure a PS5 in the UK due to consistent stock issues, which has only been made worse by scalpers.
It’s now February, yet the PS5 is still out of stock in all major retailers. But there’s potentially good news, as a PS5 UK Stock Twitter page has suggested that Game UK will open up new pre-orders in the morning of 11th February.
The PS5 UK Stock Twitter account had previously said stock would be available at Game UK on 10th February (today) but has since been delayed “due to adverse weather conditions”. We’re not convinced by this, especially since Game was reportedly just opening pre-orders rather than immediately dispatching new units. Because of this (and the fact a Twitter account isn’t a reliable source) we advise you remain sceptical.
That all said, it’s probably still worth checking tomorrow if you’re desperate to bag yourself a PS5. Stick to Trusted Reviews as we update this article throughout the next few days to help you finally land Sony’s next-gen console.

Where can I buy a PS5 right now?
Unfortunately, there is currently no PS5 stock available at major retailers in the UK.
However, Twitter account PS5 UK Stock has suggested Game will be reopening pre-orders as soon as tomorrow (11th February) for the PS5. Other UK retailers, such as Amazon, Argos and Very are also tipped to get new stock, although not until 15th February at the very earliest.
We’re not confident about these reports, but we’ll be checking UK stock throughout the week nevertheless, and will update this article as soon as we find new stock, so keep your fingers crossed
