If you’re still desperate to buy a PS5, new stock is expected to go on sale sometime this week at stores like Big W, EB Games and Amazon.

It’s hard to believe that five months into the launch of the PlayStation 5, gamers are still struggling to secure one of the bloody things. The last update we mentioned was that Big W was perhaps preparing for a fresh intake of new stock, but now it seems that things are slightly more promising.

Mysterious sources close to Press Start are reporting that shipments of the new console actually arrived on our shores last week. As a result, the same sources believe that means local retailers will be able to start selling them to consumers at any point within the next 7-14 days.

There were no specifics given as to who will possess said stock, but we’d take a pretty big stab that it includes all the usual suspects like Amazon, Big W, Target and EB Games. JB Hi-Fi will likely also get a new influx, but as we’ve mentioned in the past, there are already plenty of people on the wait list who will beat you to the punch.

Before you go getting your hopes up, be warned. Sounds like this new shipment will be annoyingly small as per usual. Our advice is to keep your eyes peeled on Facebook and Twitter for updates, and periodically refresh the PS5 page for your favourite sites.

There will likely to be little to no warning at all, so there’s a large chance you could accidentally blink and miss all the action.
