    Please post any PS5 stock updates here.

    NO chat, unless it's directly related to updates about stock availability
    NO buying / selling / scalping / trading on-thread
    NO asking for consoles, orders or reservation codes from other users
    ONLY post updates for consoles being sold at retail price


    Take rumours or speculation with a substantial pinch of salt. If you need to have a more in-depth conversation with another user, take it to private messages.

    If you have successfully ordered a PS5, there's a separate thread to discuss it here: https://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=2058119473 There's no need to offer regular updates on your order in this stock update thread.

    We will ban trolls and scalpers, or first-time posters attempting to ask for codes, swaps etc... If any issues arise, report it and a mod will get to it.

    Have started a new thread as it needed a clean break. Hopefully this one will be a bit more ordered.

    So now that there’s a new thread and there’s no mammys looking for consoles for “me little angle”...
    I think on the old one I saw some rumours about Currys tomorrow morning....could anyone elaborate or confirm?

    Tesco might be worth watching over next 24 hours. When they finish offering to people who had cancelled orders from their last release they may put whats left (if any) on tesco.ie.

    Just a thought, but when Currys restocked the xbox, it wasn't for sale on the website. Someone posted on the xbox forum that they had walked in and they were selling them behind the counter. This was last week

    Will check blanch tomorrow and update. I'd be shocked staff didn't get their paws on it all. Has curry's ireland sold any ps5s since launch?

    I'd also keep an eye on Argos for the next few days. Some people myt either not collect their reservation or had one cancelled if they reserved more then one.

    Rang Curry's also popped into one in way home from gym. Absolute garbage about tomorrow. They said they haven't heard a peep. And if that happened tomorrow would be news to them.

    Yeah I thought that...like I said earlier that would be a no go with the pandemic and all

    They did in-store only with the Series X only last week. It wasn't on the website, no click and collect.

    It absolutely is a possibility.

    Some weird stuff going on with Argos stock. I have seen 3 or 4 digital PS5's pop up at Sligo Argos more than once today, then they will disappear. Sligo is the only store I've seen this happen at, I haven't seen any stock of the digital anywhere else at all.

    It looks like Littlewoods have changed their PS5 codes

    When I ordered at about 9.30am 4 just randomly popped up even though an Argos banner popped up to say they are all sold out across the country. If you see stock pop up assume it's legit and not a glitch. My guess is some stores are late getting deliveries and scanning them into the system at different times.

    What's the link? When I click into the PS5 console it displays an unavailable message so can't check store availability

    What is going on with argos, when you "check stock in your area" it gives a "can be reserved for collection" on such a date usually 8th-10th .. this has been like this for two days surely it should be fixed by now, it's only on the disc version though... adding stock.. maybe?

    Go to the shop Benny. I’ll try online at nine. If I get one it’s yours. I’m in no rush for one but wouldn’t mind having one but I’ve no Santa and I’ll survive.

    Carrickmines opens early so would be a good indicator for the rest of the stores. Horrible day to be queueing outside though

    Honestly, it makes no sense whatsoever to me as to why they'd set up this kind of situation at the moment. You are going to get crowds/queues if this happens.



    No one else has done a big physical drop of consoles because of the pandemic. I can see them putting them up for click and collect if they have any at all.

    Ok so, just in store. From 11 onwards. They only have 20ish in that store(naas). Not sure on others

    They haven't, and will not, advertise. They are discretely making small amounts of stock available. Seems like a reasonable approach. Stops the scalpers and bots hammering their web site and reselling for a premium.

    Got one using argos.co.uk in downpatrick. Fingers crossed.

    edit: canceled!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 149 ✭✭ bdmc5


    Seems the rumours are curry’s will have stock in the morning but any idea how the process will work as the shop will be open afew hours by the times the stock comes up supposedly .

    There will already be customers in shop browsing, are they just just going to start parading consoles from behind the back or have a special line. No doubt there will be people badgering staff first thing in the morning waiting
