Update 27 July: The PS5 is still in stock at Verythe BT Shop and Argoswith digital edition bundles also available at Game, Currys and Scan, It sold out at Amazon within just a few minutes yesterday. Read on for more information.

Since its launch in 2020, the PlayStation 5 has been ridiculously difficult to get a hold of. Supply chain issues stemming from the coronavirus pandemic have brought the production of Sony’s latest games console to a near-standstill.

Thankfully, the stock situation has been massively improved in recent months, with PS5 bundles being readily available in at least one retailer since late April, with Game and the BT Shop, plus several independent retailers like The Game Collection and Scan leading the charge.

We expect this avalanche of console restocks to continue throughout the summer. But while restocks have become more frequent, buying a console on its own is still a challenge, with retailers preferring to restock bundles over the standalone console – those sell out in the blink of an eye. Digital consoles – bundles included – were even more difficult to find, until this week, where we’ve finally seen the cheaper console arrive at several retailers.

If you’re still hunting down the elusive PlayStation 5, we’ve got one tip for you – sit yourself down on this liveblog and watch for your real-time alerts. Our aim is to secure you a next-gen machine, whether that’s a bundle, or a standalone disc or digital edition console, as well as provide you with the details on the best games and accessories to nab alongside your new console, plus the latest game reviews.

You can now request to join Amazon’s PS5 wait list

We’ve just spotted that Amazon is now employing an invitation request system to buy a PS5 in the UK. After first bringing the system to its US store, UK shoppers are also now asked to click a ‘Request invitation’ button. Click that, and you’ll be added into a draw where some lucky shoppers will be emailed a link that is valid for 72 hours. Click the link, and you’ll be able to buy a PS5.

This system is currently being used for the PS5 disc edition on its own, not part of a bundle. This has been far-and-away the most sought-after configuration of PS5, as it gives shoppers the option to pick their own games and accessories, instead of buying a bundle that includes something they might not want.

Amazon says: “If invited to purchase, you’ll get an email with a link that’s valid for 72 hours. We won’t be able to grant all requests.”

These consoles can be bought only by customers who enter an access code, which is emailed out by BT. The online store currently has loads of consoles in stock, with more than 50 of each bundle in some cases.

These bundles all include the PS5 disc edition. The cheapest adds in Horizon Forbidden West and is priced at £499.99. Next up is a bundle that instead adds an extra Dualsense controller (in black or white) for a total of £508.98. Lastly, the console can be bought with both the game and the controller for £549.97.

PS5 disc edition vs digital

Confused about which console to plump for? Really, the only difference between the two is that the digital edition console doesn’t have a disc drive, while the disc edition console does. This is (we assume) why it’s cheaper.

If you don’t own physical PS4 games and you don’t have a collection of movies on Blu-ray, it could be a good idea to go for the digital edition console.

Games are downloaded from the PlayStation Store and ownership is tied to your PlayStation Network account. Unfortunately, because there’s no disc drive, you won’t be able to play any physical games you might own.

The disc edition of the PlayStation 5 costs £449, while the digital edition, without the disc drive, is cheaper and costs £359. Obviously, when packaged in a bundle, the price is inflated.
