If you’re looking for where to buy PS5, we’ve seen a few retailers going live with PS5 stock over the course of the morning. Very was the most recent candidate, though stock has just run out. Don’t panic, though, there are likely to be plenty more chances to buy PS5 today, so don’t give up.
Update: Very’s stock sold out fast – however, we’d keep an eye on that page as quick stock reloads are always on the table in the minutes after PS5 stock runs out.
Our advice is to keep checking the retailers below, get your payment and shipping details ready (either ready to copy and paste or logged with your retailer), keep product pages open and refreshed, and don’t give up if you come up short.
If you miss out, keep refreshing this page as there may be more PS5 stock in the UK waiting in the wings. We often see retailers reloading stock every few minutes, so don’t give up if you’re initially unlucky. We’re bringing you all the latest updates on where to buy PS5 as soon as more stock drops.
In this article, you’ll find all our expert tips for how to buy PS5 in the UK today. Amazon has already announced it will have the PS5 in stock at midday – and keep checking the retailer links below for updates. These are the places we think you’ll be most likely to be able to buy PS5 today…
If you’re unable to buy PS5 in the morning, however, there will be plenty more chances throughout the day. We’d recommend checking through the quick links below regularly and following our top tips on how to buy PS5 in the UK further down the page as well.
Things will move quickly when the opportunity to buy PS5 does present itself, so you’ll want to be in the right place at the right time for this one.
PS5 + PS Plus: £499 at Very
Very has the PS5 live and in stock right now – though you’ll need to pick up some optional extras to secure yours. Be quick though, this is likely to move fast. The cheapest way to do this is by adding a ‘365 day PSN subscription card’ to your order, which we assume means PS Plus, bringing the final total to £499. However, you can also pick up an extra DualSense (for the full price of course) as well.
PS5 Digital Edition: £359 at Studio
Studio looks like it’s run out of stock on the main console, but there may be quick stock reloads on the Digital Edition as it’s been flashing in and out for a while now. We’d keep checking in to make sure you don’t miss out.

With EE or BT? Here’s where you can buy PS5
BT & EE customers can order a PS5 on release day – November 19 – via your MyBT account (login required).
BT and EE have announced they’ve secured PS5 stock for their customers, but it’s not clear how much stock will be available, and it’s likely to go quick – as we’ve seen with stock everywhere else.
If you’re an EE pay monthly mobile customer, you also have the option to order the console and add the cost to your price plan, splitting it over 11 interest-free installments with EE’s ‘Add to Plan’ service.
How to buy PS5: our top tips
How to buy PS5: top tips
1. Find your retailers
The list above will keep you on top of all the latest PS5 stock updates as soon as they come in, but you should keep checking frequently as you never know when more stock will land and you might get lucky.
2. Prepare your wallet
You’re likely already steeled against the PS5 price, but you’ll want to make sure your retailers know that. Prepare your card and shipping details in a separate page or store them with your retailers of choice for a faster checkout.
3. Sign in
You may already have an account with your favourite retailers, but be sure to sign in ahead of stock. This will steal valuable seconds from your order at checkout and you’ll need all the time you can get to buy PS5 today. Plus, you can often save your checkout details with your login (if you’re comfortable doing this) and track your order a little easier. We’d recommend making accounts for each retailer offering PS5 stock today as well.
4. Find the product page
You don’t want to be left navigating the virtual aisles when the chance to buy PS5 does arrive. We’ll be linking straight out to product pages here when stock does land, but if you’re going it alone be sure to have the relevant pages queued up for your search.
5. Don’t give up
There’s likely to be plenty of chances to buy PS5 in the UK today, though you’ll need to be quick. If you come up unlucky however, keep refreshing the retailer’s page – we’ve seen stock return for quickfire refreshes in a matter of minutes in the past so you don’t want to give up at the first hurdle.
Where to buy PS5 accessories
PS5 DualSense controller: £59 at Amazon
Grab the PS5 DualSense controller for £59 at Amazon – that’s a whole 99p cheaper than other retailers. Generally, though, Amazon has had a good supply of PS5 controllers over the course of the last few months so we expect stock to be fairly reliable here today.
PS5 HD camera: £49.99 at Amazon
The PS5 HD camera is currently in stock at Amazon for £49.99. If you’re going to be using those onboard streaming options or pairing your PlayStation VR with your new console, then, this is a must-buy.
Out of stock – PS5 DualSense charging station:
£24.99 at Amazon If you picked up an extra controller with your new console, this DualSense charging station is a great way to keep your gamepads topped up. It’s been out of stock for a while though as it’s such a popular accessory – keeping checking in then because you never know when more may arrive.
Out of stock – PS5 Pulse 3D headset:
£89.99 at Amazon There’s no PS5 Pulse 3D headset stock up for grabs right now, but we’d recommend checking in at Amazon every now and then as we have seen units appearing over the last week.
PS5 games for pre-order at Game
You’ll need something to play once you get your hands on the next-gen console, and while PS5 bundles may still be a pipe dream you can still order your launch titles ready for the big day as well. Game has the biggest repertoire of UK retailers right now, with everything from Demon’s Souls to Sackboy: A Big Adventure available.
Where can you buy PS5 today?
Amazon did have a robust level of pre-order stock during the first phase of the PS5 going live at retailers in the UK. Don’t get us wrong, it still flew off the shelves, but we did see it holding on a little longer before flatlining. Amazon UK has also confirmed it will have more PS5 stock available for release date in the UK on November 19 at midday.
Currys had a few waves of PS5 pre-orders available earlier in the year, so we’re hopeful you’ll be able to buy PS5 here on launch day if you’re quick. Currys has also used a queuing system for these next-gen console releases, so things at least feel a little more civilized here, even if getting hold of a console is still uncertain.
Very was the most recent retailer to offer PS5 pre-orders in the UK, and this stock stuck around for a few waves. You’ll find that Very has PS5 stock ‘coming soon’, and you can often beat the first wave by grabbing extra accessories as well, as Very does keep stock aside to sell alongside controllers and headsets. We’ve seen this happen with the Xbox Series X, too, which also flashed back into stock after release earlier this week (before selling out again).
Game was one of the first UK retailers to offer a PS5 for pre-order last time we were all trying to buy PS5. That means we’re expecting an early jump here, but also a few higher value bundles to keep stock floating around longer as well.
When will you be able to buy PS5?
Retailers have announced certain launch times when you can buy PS5 today, with the next drop due at Amazon at midday. We’d keep checking in until then, as we’ve already seen the 9am slot go live with John Lewis and Studio and Currys took to the shelves even earlier this morning.
