Update 2: We weren't lying when we said today would be the best chance before Christmas to purchase a PlayStation 5. It might in fact be the best day this year for drops! You love to see it. Remember, any of this could run out quick so go for bundles where possible. 

The following retailers have PS5 stock live now:

Update 1: As expected, GAME has confirmed that it will go live with PS5 stock this morning. Head on over to the GAME's website in preparation for the drop that could kick off any second minute now.

GAME operates a one console per customer setup with any subsequent orders cancelled afterwards. A second drop usually goes live shortly after the first, so keep an eye if you miss out. Oh, and go for bundles! 

Original Story: The big restock date from GAME we've all been waiting for is here! Today is undoubtedly the best chance to pre-order a PlayStation 5 console and make sure you have one in time for Christmas, so here's everything you need to know going into GAME's imminent drop.

This will be the first restock from GAME in December, after previously putting stock up for sale last on November 30th. It also went live on November 17th and November 4th, following five consistent weeks of restocks from mid-October to early November. Each one has been known for featuring large supplies of disc, digital and more bundles than the eye can see. 

After we previously reported that GAME was building towards another massive restock, it has now been confirmed that all PS5 consoles will go live today (December 14th) between 9AM to 11:30 UK time. This was re-confirmed by the always reliable PS5 Stock UK Twitter account, which now boasts over 200,000 followers.  

It's an outstanding opportunity to start playing the latest next-gen games over the holidays. I'm finally going to jump into PS5 exclusive Deathloop, after finishing off Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy – which I highly recommend playing. There's also the likes Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Demon's Souls, and many more wonderful experiences to be found. 

Anyone that pre-orders a PS5 via GAME will receive the console by December 20th at the latest. If you opt for priority delivery, you can start playing even earlier on December 16th. Make sure to read our handy tips guide ahead of time and please for the love of Shuhei: go for bundles. Standalone disc consoles sell incredibly fast (30 minutes max), whereas bundles are available for a good while longer (usually a couple of hours). 

If you are committed to going for a standalone, then make sure to keep your eyes glued to T3's social media account as well as our official T3 PS5 restock tracker for the latest details. Good luck!
