PlayStation 5 customers can potentially grab a console at Argos this weekend.
As reported by PS5 UK Stock, the PS5 was restocked at Argos ahead of the weekend.
The consoles were available on a regional basis, both on browsers and via the Argos app.
“Stock drop at Argos Online,” reads a PS5 UK Stock tweet. “Works either on browser or app. Remember it’s regional! Your region might not be available yet. Good luck.
“This is collection only. Most people have better luck via a Web browser. Chrome is the worst, suggest using alternative like Safari, Edge, Opera etc.”
Because of the nature of the drop, and the fact that it’s collection only, customers are encouraged to contact their local store to see if any additional consoles are available.
It’s also worth keeping an eye open for additional stock drops, following last week’s surprise weekend restock at ShopTo.
Currys has also sent out emails to customers as part of its VIP scheme. Users are urged to check their emails to see if they are eligible to purchase a console.
Currys codes must be redeemed in store before July 13. Various stock checker accounts are giving away Currys VIP codes, so it’s worth giving them a follow.
If you want to give yourself the best possible chance of purchasing a PlayStation 5, then it’s worth bookmarking some of the more popular stock checker accounts for even more alerts and information.
Some of the accounts mentioned above have Discord groups for PS5 customers, while some have live streams and alerts on sites like YouTube.
If you do manage to pick up a PlayStation 5 this weekend, then it’s worth pre-ordering new Bethesda game Deathloop.
The PS5 exclusive (for the time being) sees rival assassins trapped in a timeloop on the island of Blackreef. The only way to escape the loop is by assassinating eight targets before the day resets.
An intriguing premise is made all the more interesting by the inclusion of PS5 exclusive features, such as DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.
“Every new loop is an opportunity to change things up. Use the knowledge you gain from each attempt to change up your playstyle, stealthily sneaking through levels or barreling into the fight, guns-blazing.
“In each loop you’ll discover new secrets, gather intel on your targets as well as the island of Blackreef, and expand your arsenal. Armed with a host of otherworldly abilities and savage weaponry, you’ll utilise every tool at your command to execute takedowns that are as striking as they are devastating.”
Deathloop has a September 14 release date, exclusively on PlayStation 5.
