Argos is rumoured to be getting more PS5 to buy soon
Argos PS5 stock could be available to buy once again in the UK soon. The retailer had been tipped to release more PlayStation 5 stock earlier this week, with a Tuesday restock previously mooted. Argos ended up not opening orders for the PS5 on that day, but the latest update from PS5 stock trackers indicate more stock could become available to buy on Thursday June 17.
That’s according to the @PS5StockAlertUK Twitter, who highlighted how the Argos website went down for maintenance on Wednesday morning – which could be in preparation of the next PS5 stock drop.
Announcing the maintenance the Argos Twitter posted: “Our website will be down from midnight, sorry for any inconvenience. We’re making some updates and we’ll be back up and running again at 6am. See you then!”
And not long afterwards the @PS5StockAlertUK Twitter wrote: “Update: Argos will be down for maintenance from midnight to 6am in the morning. This indicates that the PlayStation 5 Ratchet & Clank bundle is postponed to Thursday 17th June (1-5am).”
Earlier in the week the @PS5StockAlertUK Twitter also gave details on how large the next Argos PS5 restock will be.
They also gave the product code for the Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart bundle, which is crucial to know as the item isn’t listed on the Argos website or app just yet.
The @PS5StockAlertUK Twitter wrote: “News: Argos stock count is now known to us, around 3-10K stock with the minimum and maximum stock margins. The product code is 941/8136 once it drops, as it’s clearly not on the app or site yet.”

Argos restocks differ to other retailer’s PS5 restocks with orders opening up in the early hours of the morning.
Restocks typically go live from 1am UK time, with those looking to purchase a PS5 from the retailer in for a late night.
The flip side to this is, because customers can collect a PS5 from their local Argos store, they have been able with past restocks to get hold of their shiny new next-gen console on the same day as ordering.
But before you rush to the shops to get some Red Bull in to prepare for a potential restock and late night tonight there’s one thing to be aware of.
As the @PS5StockAlertUK Twitter noted, a number of potential restocks for this week haven’t arrived at their expected date and time.

This could be due to companies being “understaffed” and stock being “handled slower”.
The @PS5StockAlertUK Twitter wrote: “We have realised the first half of this week hasn’t been what we expected compared to usual.
“Companies seem to be understaffed, and stock seems to be handled slower, in particular for PS5.
“As always, we’ll keep you updated with the latest whilst you go on with your day!”
So if you’re thinking of staying up tonight for the rumoured Argos PS5 restock that’s something to be aware of.
We wouldn’t want any readers feeling disappointed after staying up late for a potential Argos restock.
