UK TOY shop Smyths have revealed they are expecting a Playstation 5 restock within the next two weeks.
Since its launch last November, millions of gamers around the world have struggled to bag a PlayStation 5.
With restock rumours swirling continually, only the quickest off the mark at shops like Argos, Very and Amazon have been able to pick one up so far.
And that was proven to be the case once again this week, with GAME selling out on new consoles twice in a matter of days
But Smyths has recently reassured fans new stock is definitely coming at some point before the end of the month.
So with just two weeks remaining until the end of February, the wait for a PS5 could soon be over for a lucky few.

BLACK PS5 BECOMES A REALITY
Gamers dreaming of an all-black PS5 can now see their dreams become reality, with black faceplates for the next-gen console now on sale.
However, the new ‘Darkplates” aren’t available through Sony; instead, American brand dbrand is producing the sheets of plastic.
There was a three month wait on shipping, as the company had already sold out on stock and pre-orders for February, March and April, Techradar reported.
dbrand’s coveted new product cost around £35.
THE DARK SIDE
Hardware skin maker dbrand has announced plans to sell PS5 faceplates that transform your white console into a shiny black one, it was reported.
According to tomsguide.com the plates are black, matte and feature an interior micro-texture, just like the PS5’s default design.
PS5 faceplates can easily be removed so transforming your console into a black machine is as easy as swapping those plates for dbrand’s own.
ARGOS , VERY AND SMYTHS TOYS EXPECTING CONSOLES
Restocks have started to become more frequent the further we get into February.
Argos is expecting stock of consoles mid-late February while Very is expecting them “soon”, reports EuroGamer.
The site reports that Symths Toys are expecting more this month as well.
PS5 SCALPERS SAY THEIR BOTS TO HELP OTHERS
PS5 scalper group The Lab claims claim they use bots to be a force for good in society.
Co-founder Jordan and his business partner Regan claim that by selling their knowledge and bots to others, they are a positive force.
“The whole group came about near the start of the first UK lockdown and it makes me so happy that I can help people make some extra money for themselves,” Regan told Forbes.
“We do a lot for charity as well. I myself or collectively as a group donate to charity almost monthly at this point.”
ARGOS COULD RESTOCK NEXT WEEK
Hopeful PS5 buyers are being tipped off about a possible restock at Argos next week.
Twitter tipster PS5StockAlertUK today noted that Argos had restocked some stores yesterday, and were restocking all warehouses and hubs today.
“Just like last time, some smaller stores won’t be getting stock,” they said.
“But this hints a possible restock by Argos next week. It’s currently too early to claim which day. (UK & ROI).”
