Update: The PS5 is now in stock at the BT Shop for BT Broadband customers – codes can be found on your MyBT portal. It could drop at EE this week. Read on for more information.

With the release of FromSoftware’s latest action RPG Elden Ring almost upon us, it has never been a better time to get your hands on one of Sony’s coveted PS5 consoles. But that’s easier said than done.

Despite Gran Turismo 7  being on the way next, it’s never been more difficult to get your hands on a PS5. Over a year since its launch, customers are still struggling to get their hands on one due to the ongoing global semiconductor shortage sparked by the coronavirus pandemic. Sony’s Playstation 5 was released in November 2020 and even though we’re now in February 2022, demand for the console is still high.

While this week and last have both been pretty successful ones in terms of stock drops, this is still turning out to be the worst month for restocks so far – but don’t fret.

Our liveblog is here to get you one of Sony’s elusive next-gen consoles, as well as provide you with the details on the best games and accessories to grab alongside your new machine. If you want to find out which online retailers will be the first to restock, then keep scrolling to receive updates as they happen.

‘Horizon Forbidden West’ claimed to be ‘one of the best-looking PS5 games’

Once again IndyBest’s gaming writer, Jasper Pickering got his hands on a new game ahead of its release. It’s one of Sony’s most eagerly anticipated launches, Horizon Forbidden West (£62.99, Amazon.co.uk) we’re interested in here.

In his review, Pickering notes that the “story will take new players to unexpected and breathtaking places”, it also “takes great leaps in its visual and story presentation, it stays the path with its gameplay, making small but notable additions that improve the experience”.

The best PS5 accessories

Have you managed to get hold of one of the consoles thanks to our liveblog? You’re welcome! But perhaps you need our advice once more. And luckily, we’ve got the lowdown on all the best PS5 accessories.

(Sony)

This controller took the top spot in the guide to the best PS5 accessories, with our writer noting that it’s the “best choice for the majority of users thanks to giving them a way to play games with others on the sofa”.

It’s “well-designed” and “feels good in your hands”, it also “provides some unique features such as its pressure sensitive triggers and haptic feedback that just don’t feel the same elsewhere” praised our tester.

PS5 disc edition vs digital

“What is the difference between the two consoles?” we hear you ask. Well, the differences between the two devices are very subtle. The answer comes down to, well, very little.

As the name indicates, the only thing that sets the “disc edition”, which has an “Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive” (the same as on the PS4) from the other is that it has a disc drive and the price. The normal, disc edition of the PlayStation 5 costs £449, while the digital edition, without the disc drive, is cheaper and costs £359.

When will Amazon restock PS5?

Amazon last had a restock of the disc edition console yesterday on 23 February and the digital edition console on 23 December. Both times, stock sold out in less than an hour.

The retailer usually releases the PS5 disc edition before the PS5 digital edition, so be aware if you see one go live before the other.

On 14 July, Amazon made the console exclusively available to Prime members for the first time, which may be good at combating scalper bots in the future. It has only made the console available to Prime customers ever since.

‘Elden Ring’ is out tomorrow – read our review

(The Independent)

IndyBest’s gaming writer Jasper Pickering got his hands on Elden Ring (£54.99, Game.co.uk) ahead of its release date so he could bring you an honest review. After 20 hours of play, he dropped his verdict.

“If you consider yourself a longtime fan of FromSoftware games, then you’ve likely already made your decision about playing Elden Ring, he wrote. And if you are “worried that the open world, fast travel systems and optional dungeons will render the game too easy, then fear not”.

“It offers plenty of challenges for players, while its improved combat mechanics and traversal provide ample opportunity for newcomers to get acquainted with the genre.”

The game will be released on Friday 25 February and is available to pre-order now.
