UPDATE THREE: The PS5 is believed to be back in stock at GAME this week, with a restock scheduled for Thursday, July 22 between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.
And ahead of the next PS5 restock, PlayStation fans have received an update.
The @PS5 Instant Twitter said the next GAME PS5 restock is expected to include 6,000 digital consoles and 4,000 disc systems.
The PS5 stock tracking account added that this will be the last chance to buy the PS5 digital console before Sony releases a lighter revised version.
The Twitter @ PS5Instant posted: “GAME # PS5Restock tomorrow (8-10 a.m.) – last chance to get Sony’s original Digital # PS5 weight. They got around 6K digital and 4K disc.”
UPDATE TWO: Despite the ongoing stockouts on the PS5, there are signs that the situation is reversing.
VGChartz revealed in an online article its latest estimated numbers for hardware around the world.
And not only did the PS5 manage to sell double what the Xbox Series X and S sold for the week leading up to July 10, the PS5 also managed to outperform the Switch in Europe.
This despite the fact that the Switch is constantly in stock, while the PS5 must be planned in advance for any potential replenishment.
Elsewhere, VGChartz revealed that the PS5 managed to hit the 10 million sales milestone faster than the PS4. This despite the stockouts since the launch of the PS5 last November.
