Sony PlayStation 5 console: View stock at Amazon The PS5 is here and it offers next-gen gaming, 3D audio and an innovative DualSense controller that helps immerse you in the action. The standard PS5 plays 4K Blu-ray discs but there's also the option of the cheaper (disc-less) PS5 Digital Edition.

Amazon isn't the only place to find PS5 stock this week, though.

John Lewis is tipped to drop again tomorrow, 26th August (7 - 8am).

AO is said to be readying a PS5 stock drop for the 26th - 27th August (10am - 1pm). AO often offers stock over the phone, so it could be worth giving them a ring tomorrow or Friday.
