CURRYS will get new PS5 stock on March 1, Playstation fans have predicted.
The store is one of very few major UK retailers who didn’t restock in February, with multiple Twitter stock trackers now convinced the new month could bring a Currys console drop.
Meanwhile Playstation CEO Jim Ryan said Sony are “working as hard as they possibly can” to get more stock and blamed a global shortage in semiconductors for a slow rollout that has caused misery around the world.
“I know there were people who wanted a PS5 and couldn’t find one. We’re very sorry about that and obviously grateful that demand has been as strong as it is,” he said.
“Obviously in a pandemic supply chains become a little more complicated than would normally be the case… We had to move to a distribution model that is entirely online and that’s something that we never had to do before.
“And, finally, just the level of demand for PlayStation 5. So, you know, all of those things kind of combined,” he added explaining the shortage.

HUGE PS5 AND PS4 SALE
Sony is hosting a huge PlayStation sale that shaves big cash off top games with some of them being discounted up to 75%.
The sale is part of the new PlayStation Indies sale.
It includes the smash-hit game Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout.
The multiplayer Royale is down from £15.99 to £11.99, while players can also get a 25% saving on Cuphead and a 30% discount on Planet Coaster: Deluxe Edition.
CURRY’S WILL BE NEXT
The same tipster gives hope to those who haven’t been able to secure a PS5 yet, as he claims the next opportunity will be Curry’s on March 1.
The tipster claims the rest of the week will be quiet but advises fans to be “on the site from 6am if possible, drop by 10!”
According to a popular PS5 stock Twitter account, Argos is due to receive consoles soon.
Although there is no confirmed date, the account said the consoles will be Disc Edition only.
CONSIDERABLE’ AMOUNT OF PS5S IN THE UK MARKET
PlayStation’s boss has said that there is considerable stock going into the UK market – meaning that gamers could snap up a console very soon.
Mr Ryan told GQ: “We’re doing our best.
“I was just looking at the supply figures for the UK – we put a considerable amount of product into the UK market last week.
“And that will continue over weeks and months to come.”
THE EYES HAVE IT
Sony has confirmed that it is working on a new version of its PlayStation VR headset designed for the PlayStation 5.
The Japanese tech titan said Tuesday that the new gear, out as early as next year, promises “dramatic leaps in performance and interactivity”.
“Our next-generation VR system will be coming to PlayStation 5, enabling the ultimate entertainment experience,” Sony’s Hideaki Nishino wrote in a blog post.
“Players will feel an even greater sense of presence and become even more immersed in their game worlds once they put on the new headset.”
