A number of popular UK retailers including Argos and Smyths have said they do not expect to receive new PS5 stock until 2021.
Argos’ product listing for the PS5 mentions “We will not have any further stock for the rest of 2020,” while a customer services representative said that, “We are out of stock of the PS5, we are expecting more early 2021.” Meanwhile, Smyths says Sony’s new console is out of stock online and that more is “expected” in January 2021.
Some retailers did manage to secure more stock including ShopTo, Currys and GAME, while the last round of preorders at Smyths will be fulfilled by December 18.
Sony‘s new home console launched in the UK on November 19 and promptly sold out. Some orders at Amazon UK were stolen in transit and replace by generic household items.
