Argos provides disappointing news to PS5 fans over remaining stock

Argos has said that it will not be offering any more PS5s for the rest of the year, amid ongoing frustration and upset among fans desperate to buy the new PlayStation.

Since the console was released on 19 November, it has been nearly impossible to buy. It is out of stock at all major retailers, and has been since launch.

Rarely, and unexpectedly, retailers will update their sites with what always appears to be very limited stock. Any listings immediately cause a flurry of interest on social media, and then sell out very quickly.

That has left fans scouring the major retailers for updates one whether they have stock and when more might arrive.

Argos, however, has told players they need not do so, since the company has confirmed it will not be listing more consoles at least through the end of the year.

“Sorry, PlayStation 5 is currently unavailable,” a message on the console’s listing page reads. “We will not have any further stock for the rest of 2020.”

No other major retailer has stock either, but Argos is the first to give explicit guidance about future supply, or lack of it.

As such, customers are still forced to rely on refreshing retailer websites to find whether consoles have come into stock. A full list of major retailers can be found here.

Sony has suggested that more supply of consoles is coming, but it remains unclear when or how many of those consoles will arrive, or where they will be stocked in the UK if they do.

The rush to find consoles has led to a range of frustrations for customers. People who did actually manage to buy them reported receiving other items in place of their PS5, while Amazon listings ostensibly selling consoles for £100 appear to be scams.
