On Friday, GameStop had PS5 stock in featured stores, giving US customers the chance to take one home for the weekend. Meanwhile, UK folks are still holding out for the big Argos drop. Get the full details on upcoming drops with this PS5 Restock Update for January 16.

US PS5 Console Restock Update
For today, January 16, 2022, Ebay is once again the go-to site for PS5s that are in stock right now. Users will definitely need to filter by “Buy It Now” and “Newly Listed” to find the good deals. Implementing a price cap is also recommended, as it helps filter out scalpers.
New drops at US retailers are expected next week. 2022 has been consistent with weekly restocks, so fingers crossed this continues. The proven reliable stock tracker @PS5restocks_etc has tweeted its confidence that both PS5 and Xbox Series X will be restocked in “the days ahead.”

Which UK stores have PS5 stock for today, January 16?
BT shop remains the best place to get UK PS5 stock. Unfortunately, for those with a different ISP, this deal is only available to BT Broadband customers.
Got a BT Broadband account? Then head here to check out the available PS5 consoles and PS5 bundles. At the time of writing, there are still some in stock.
For those who don’t have a BT Broadband account, Argos is the one to watch in the coming weeks, with stock expected between January 25-28. This is according to @PS5StockAlertUK, who is another reliable stock tracker.
Ebay is also an option. For those who take the time to filter through the hundreds of scalper listings, PS5s can currently be found for only £50-80 above RRP. That’s not a terrible premium when you consider the scalper prices. With that said, a lot of these good deals are listed as “Used” or “Refurbished,” and so won’t be brand new. It’s always worth reaching out to the seller of these kinds of listings, to ask about the system’s warranty and if the console has been opened at all.
In the world of PlayStation news, Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone problems will be fixed, Activision has promised.
Dying Light 2 DLC and post-launch content has been promised for five years after launch. Following the extensive support of the original game, Techland may well deliver.
Managed to grab a PS5? If yes, then you’ll be eager to learn that an Apex Legends PS5 version seems to be coming soon.
