A PlayStation 5 restock is set to take place for retailer John Lewis in the coming weeks. This follows on from confirmation that the store would receive a shipment in late September/early October. This particular stock has now been slightly delayed to the second week of the month.
Specifically, the shipment is expected to arrive on October 15th with an online restock then anticipated either a few days prior or afterwards. In other words, keep your eyes peeled from anytime next week. The more interesting information to come out of this is that both disc and digital versions of the console will be available, with stock levels coming in at around 700 and 300, respectively.
This news was shared by the PS5 Stock UK Twitter account (170,000 followers), which has a very reliable history of providing accurate drops for consumers. We always recommend purchasing bundles to be in with the best chance of securing a console, however, none appear to be part of this drop so it will be down to a first-come, first-serve basis.
