The PlayStation 5 has long since launched. The end of 2020 saw some less than spectacular pre-order mayhem, brought on by an unprecedented swell in demand for video game consoles and a pesky virus that will go unnamed. Though Sony’s latest console is a certified hit, PS5 stock is still hard to come by. Coming through in dribs, drabs and random drops, many fans are still finding it a challenge to locate a PS5 restock.

We’re here to bring you a consolidated list of the best places to find the PS5 in stock. But be warned, though these retailers are the most reliable locations for PlayStation stock, the consoles are still hard to come by. The best thing to do? Keep checking back!

While the likes of Deathloop, Demon's Souls and Spider-man: Miles Morales are delivering big things for the new console generation, Sony is also offering PlayStation Plus members free access to a host of PS4 classics. These include Days Gone, God of War, The Last Of Us and The Last Guardian, all of which promise improved performance on the PS5.

What else do I need to get the most out of my new console?

A new 4K smart TV is a good place to start, allowing you to truly appreciate the graphical capability of the PS5. Alternatively, a decent gaming monitor will also deliver on this front, with a reduced price tag.

Next up is audio – while Sony will be launching the PS5 with an all-new headset, a soundbar and surround sound system is also a good shout. It’s also a given that some more versatile gaming headsets are going to be useful – even if they don’t work with the PS5 (the jury is still out on accessory compatibility), the head is sure to work with TV and monitor audio-outs.

If you happen to have a cool £1,000 going spare, then the “PS5 Ready” Sony BRAVIA TVs manages to combine all of these features into one, wholly impressive package.
