More PS5 stock coming to Game, Very and Smyths (Image: SONY)

Sony is busy keeping up with consumer demand after it was revealed that they have now sold 10 million units of PS5 stock worldwide.

It’s unclear how much of that has been sold in the UK, but it’s clear that much more is needed to meet current demand.

Every time a retailer or digital store announces a new stock of PlayStation 5 consoles; they sell out fast.

Some retailers have set up systems that allow them to send digital codes so that consumers don’t have to queue online.

But even with these new systems, it is still very difficult to find a next-gen slot machine.

The good news is that another wave of PS5 stock is expected to be released in the coming days, giving fans their next shot.

Many of the shared dates come from stock tracker accounts and some remain rough predictions.

And while these should be taken with a grain of salt, it’s always good to know what can happen later in August.

From what has been shared by reliable sources so far, the earliest major drop in PS5 stock will occur on Tuesday, August 17.

GAME is expected to complete and release the latest shipment of PlayStation 5 consoles on that date; however, there is a chance that they will postpone a little later.

This means that the restock event could take place between August 17 and 20, with pre-order pages expected to go live very soon.

If the GAME supplement arrives in time, gamers are warned to be ready in the late morning.

While the official PS5 page featuring the new stock isn’t expected to go live super early, something is expected to happen between 8am and 12pm BST.

Other UK retailers are also expected to restock in August, with Smyths Toys and Very both linked with shipments between August 18 and August 20.

This news was shared by the PS5 Stock UK tracker account on Twitter, which has a good track record of sharing drops before they happen.

The full message from PS5 Stock UK reads: “We have been informed that the expected restock of GAME this week has been moved to August 17th. The reason for this may be due to delays in the shipment of the PlayStation 5 consoles.

“As we reported exclusively 4 days ago, GAME has updated the release date of #PS5 consoles to August 27 due to the shipping delay we mentioned. We expect GAME to go live with pre-orders on August 17 (9-11:30 AM).”
