Smyths Toys has gone live with PS5 stock. The difference with this restock, however, is that it's an in-store pre-order only. Head on over to Smyth's website to check whether your local retailer has stock, or better yet – give them a call.

Pre-orders will begin whenever your local store opens today (October 29th) and will be worth checking in until closure. A £20 deposit is required to make an order but that money will then be deducted when you make the full payment. Delivery is expected between November 15th to November 20th. 

Both disc and digital consoles are available, and while we always recommend going for bundles to be in with the best chance of securing one, this time you should be fine to go for whatever is available... considering it's in person.

Smyths Toys social media has also been replying to consumers ahead of the drop, confirming that more stock is expected in November:

Anyone that picks up a PS5 console today can experience the latest exclusive games from Sony, including Deathloop, Returnal, Demon's Souls, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Kena: Bridge of Spirits, and more. Not to mention the likes of Horizon Forbidden West and God of War: Ragnarok, which are now in development for the platform. 

Smyths has been great in the past for console stock and this method stops any scalpers from buying up the lot. I've personally bought hardware from Smyths in the past (Nintendo Switch) and found it a quick and easy experience. You never know, you might get lucky on your lunch break or walk home from work, so definitely recommend checking in.
