GAME PS5 restock time and date confirmed: Alarms on and wallets ready for HUGE stock drop

5 mins read


PS5 customers should check out the GAME website on the morning of November 17.

The UK retailer has announced plans to restock the device online, most likely from 10am GMT onwards.

Like recent GAME stock drops, consoles will be limited to one per customer. Indeed, GAME has warned that checks will take place to prevent scalping.

Not only does this give customers a better chance of obtaining a console, but it also means additional stock could be available the following day.

“Tomorrow morning we will be going live with a selection of PlayStation 5 consoles,” reads a GAME statement. “PlayStation 5’s continue to be in very high demand and that demand far outweighs current supply. We have strong measures in place to ensure that our ‘1 per customer’ statement is maintained.

“Alongside this we have our ‘anti scalping policy’ procedures in place to allow for as many individual customers to successfully purchase as possible.

“Please know that all pre-orders are subject to automatic checks. Order updates (such as cancellation emails) take place after a customer will have received a valid order confirmation email.”

PlayStation 5 shopping tips when buying from GAME…

• Get familiar with the bundles, so you know which one to target first: Obscure bundles are easier to get, standalones almost impossible. [GAME]

• When alerted, click through to your first bundle of choice as quickly as possible, this will get you into the queue. [GAME] 

• If it says it’s failed when trying to checkout, it means that bundle is now OOS. So go back to the bundles and pick another one. [GAME]

• Checking out too much too quickly will give you a 30-60 second timeout, so don’t rush it. If this happens, just wait a bit then try again. [GAME]

If you’re looking for some PS5 game recommendations, then it’s well worth checking out exclusives such as Deathloop, Returnal and Demon’s Souls.

Developed behind the studio responsible for games such as Dishonred and Prey, Deathloop sees two assassins battle it out on a mysterious island.

“In Deathloop, two rival assassins are trapped in a mysterious timeloop on the island of Blackreef, doomed to repeat the same day for eternity,” reads the official description.

“As Colt, the only chance for escape is to end the cycle by assassinating eight key targets before the day resets. Learn from each cycle – try new paths, gather intel, and find new weapons and abilities. Do whatever it takes to break the loop.”

Returnal also features a timeloop mechanic, as players explore an ever-changing alien planet.

“After crash-landing on a shape-shifting alien planet, Selene finds herself fighting tooth and nail for survival. Again and again she’s defeated, forced to restart her journey every time she dies.

“In this roguelike shooter, both the planet and your equipment change with every cycle, forcing you to adapt your play style and take on evolving challenges.”
