UPDATE: PS5 bundles are currently available at game. Read on for more information.

It’s almost been a year and a half since the PS5 was first released in the UK, yet we’re all still here, scratching our heads and struggling desperately to find a console.

Why? It’s all thanks to the ongoing global semiconductor shortage sparked by the coronavirus pandemic, of course. This has meant consoles are still tricky to get hold of, both online and in-store. And when consoles do finally arrive, they are often snapped up in a matter of minutes.

But the situation is getting better – slowly. April was one of the best months for restocks since the start of 2022. The month saw PS5 consoles available at PlayStation Direct, ShopTo, Currys, Argos, AO, Game, Smyths Toys, Very and many more independent retailers to boot. Now we’re into the first week of May, let’s hope the momentum continues as we slowly make our way towards the summer.

Our liveblog is here to get you one of Sony’s elusive next-gen consoles, as well as provide you with the details on the best games and accessories to grab alongside your new machine, plus the latest game reviews. If you want to find out which online retailers will be the first to restock, then keep scrolling to receive updates as they happen.

Amazon Gaming Week

Amazon Gaming Week is here with a huge number of deals on everything gaming. The sale lasts for approximately one week and this year it is currently taking place between 2-8 May.

While Prime Day is scheduled to take place later this year, the shopping giant’s gaming event is still a great way to kick things off with a fairly decent saving on pricey electronic goods. And we’ve already seen savings of up to 88 per cent on some items, making it exceptionally good value.

There’s plenty of other deals to be had though, so if you’ve managed to get your hands on a console, now is the perfect time to build up your library of games. Read our full buying guide to shop the best Amazon Gaming Week Deals.

Happy Star Wars day!

If you’re a big fan of Star Wars, then likely you’re already aware of today’s significance if you’re hoping to pick up a few deals from Lego to celebrate.

Last month we also saw the release of Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, one of the biggest Lego games yet and we couldn’t think of a better time to revisit this family-friendly take on the longrunning sci-fi series.

In our review, we said: “The Skywalker Saga (£44.99, Amazon.co.uk) is a fitting tribute to the most enduring film franchise of the last three generations. Fans of both properties will enjoy it, especially those young enough to have missed the first few installations.

“For longtime fans of Lego Star Wars, there’s enough of an improvement to the tried and tested formula to warrant some intrigue, if only to see how far the series has come along.”

When will Amazon have another restock?

Amazon is one of the largest retailers out there but even they have trouble getting plentiful supplies of PS5 consoles. Because so many people have the console on their wishlist, they quickly tend to sell out as soon as customers are notified of their availability, before anyone else has a chance to get them.

We last saw them restock on 27 April and as expected, that restock didn’t last very long. Based on previous stock patterns, we usually expect to see Amazon restock the console around once a month.

Because we only saw a restock from them last week, we can expect to see PS5 consoles pop up on their website closer to the end of the month.

‘Horizon Forbidden West’

We’ve seen a number of the bundles from Game have a copy of Horizon Forbidden West included and while many people will be looking to get a standalone console rather than a bundle, is the game actually any good?

Well, yes it is. Made by Guerilla Games as a direct sequel to 2017’s Horizon Zero Dawn, players will explore a post-apocalpytic United States as hunter Aloy as she makes her journey to the west coast, taking in the sights of Nevada, California and Yosemite Valley along the way.

In our review, we said: “In Horizon Forbidden West, Guerilla Games has developed its post-apocalyptic marriage of technology and nature to craft a beautifully realized vision of a world desperate for rebirth. The story will take new players to unexpected and breathtaking places, and fans of Horizon Zero Dawn will have plenty of their questions answered.”

Have you picked up your free copy of ‘Fifa 22’ yet?

If you missed the news, PS Plus subscribers have a chance to pick up one of the biggest titles on PS4 or PS5 completely free of charge!

FIFA 22 (£69.99, Playstation.com) can be downloaded on both the PS4 and PS5. It’s the latest installment in the longstanding Fifa franchise and contains new features such as “HyperMotion” technology and a new option to create your own club in career mode.

The game is available to subscribers for the whole month of May and is one of the biggest offerings to gamers in recent memory, considering that FIFA 23 is still quite a few months away.

What PS5 bundles are available from Game?

While it appears that some of the bundles available from Game are selling fast, there are still plenty of configurations available, including one with the Playstation exclusive Horizon Forbidden West(£519.98, Game.co.uk).

There is also another bundle available with the game and a 3D pulse wireless headset (£609.97, Game.co.uk) which made our pick for the best PS5 accessories.

If you were hoping to pick up an extra dualsense controller, then this bundle includes the console, the game, a controller and charging stand for quick and easy access (£604.96, Game.co.uk).

These are all likely to sell quite quickly so make sure you get one while they are still available.

Live blog signing off

That brings another day of PS5 hunting to an end. The day began with stock still being available to pre-order at Game, but that soon dried up. Then came a fresh batch of pre-order stock at Smyths Toys, but those consoles are also now sold out. As far as we can tell, there are currently no retailers with PS5 stock available to buy today.

As ever, we’ll be back again tomorrow to bring you the latest news of PS5 restocks, both in the UK and US, as soon as they happen.
