Many are still scouring the web for more PS5 restocks, and if you're among them there are some promising rumors that suggest there will be more chances to buy PS5 from January 14. A "huge third wave of shipment" was apparently set to land on January 7, but "further delays from Sony" reportedly pushed them back.

According to the PS5 stock tracker account Ps5Instant, which uses bots to sniff out whenever Sony’s elusive console reappears, January 14 should be when “most” retailers now receive more stock.

The account also claimed that BT and EE would get more PS5 stock on January 7, which would have been a boon for BT and EE customers who want to buy a PlayStation 5, but sadly it never materialized. 

While it's hard to verify these claims, it's worth making a note and keeping an eye out to see whether stock does indeed appear.

The PS5 has continued to flash in and out of stock at various retailers in the US, but stock has been a lot harder to find in the UK ever since pre-orders opened back on September 19, 2020.  

To make matters worse, the PS5 has been targeted by scalpers, bots and even thieves which has made stock even more scarce. Many have succumbed to paying over the odds to resellers and scalpers out of sheer desperation, with some users being scammed by fake PS5 listings. Remember that the PS5 price is £449.99 / $499 / AU$749 for the disc version.

One PS5, please 

It's likely that PS5 stock will be easier to find during 2021, particularly as the initial wave of early adopters has now passed and Sony has had more time to refine its supply chain. We'll be checking all the major retailers regularly so you don't miss out when new stock does appear, so keep it locked to TechRadar for future updates.
