Update 2: All Argos stock has now sold out, however, GAME and AO have gone live with their own restocks today (April 13th). Head to the official T3 PS5 restock tracker for the latest details.
Update: Argos has now gone live with PS5 stock and is slowly rolling out to different regions around the country. Head on over to the Argos website to get a PlayStation 5 console while they still last.
Currys has simultaneously gone live with lots of PS5 bundles, so well worth checking in there too. We're also expecting Very to go live sometime this week – possibly later today.
Original Story: The past few months have been up and down for PlayStation 5 restocks, however, April is looking to make up for the lack of consoles sales with arguably the biggest restock of 2022 set to happen incredibly soon.
It's been confirmed that over the last couple of weeks, Argos has been building to a PS5 restock like no other, which is set to feature a large number of PlayStation 5 disc consoles (90%) and digital consoles (10%). This information comes courtesy of one of the web's biggest PS5 Stock UK trackers. The details point to a restock date later this week.
According to the report, Argos is expected to go live anytime between April 11th and April 15th with the stock tracker suggesting it will happen in the first half of the week. While that's completely possible, we think it's more likely to go live on April 15th, if history is anything to go by. This is because Argos has only held two restocks in 2022 so far, taking place on January 21st and March 11th and – you guessed it – these both went live on a Friday.
Argos has typically put PS5 stock up for sale around 8AM to 9AM UK time, so expect an early rise if you want any chance of securing a console. Stock rolls out at different times depending on where in the country you are located so keep checking in. As a result, it can go live as early as 3AM on the odd occasion, although, we're hoping Argos has learned its lesson with this and will opt for a more consumer-friendly time.
Alongside this, Very is expected to have its own restock on the morning of April 12th after previously going live on March 8th. Both Argos and Very are two of the best retailers for stock allocation from our experience, so we highly recommend going in for these two. We have a handy tips guide to help in preparation.

It's an interesting time to own a Sony console, considering the Japanese firm recently confirmed an overhaul of PlayStation Plus, meaning over 700 games will be available to play in the new package. Whether or not the biggest new releases, such as Horizon Forbidden West and Elden Ring, will be included is yet to be seen.
