Gamers across the United Kingdom, are communicating that the UK-based retailer, Argos, is offering the new stock of PS5 this week.
Play Station 5 was launched by Sony in mid-November, charging £350 for the digital version and £450 for the full-fat console with a classy disc tray. Ever since, the stock got disappeared within minutes, sometimes seconds, irrespective of the retailing outlet.
Well, this news is coming right from the people standing in queues that Argos is restocking the console and rolling it out regionally which gives a sigh of relief and creates a sense of panic simultaneously among the gaming community. At this stage, the fan pages, social media handles, of gamers are filled with bits and pieces of advice on how to grab the console before it goes out of stock again.
In a report by Birmingham Live, One tracker wrote: “Argos still dropping, if you can’t see it yet keep trying. Add to wish list from the app, move to the trolley. Open in the web browser and check your trolley, then select options!” It then added: “Argos is LIVE! They will be doing regional, localized drops! If it’s showing as unavailable for you, keep checking back frequently!”
As the demand for PS5 is reaching the sky and it seems like it’s not going to drop anytime sooner, therefore, there is strong anticipation of more stock coming later this month.
SONY GIVES A MESSAGE OF HOPE TO PLAYERS WHO HASN’T BEEN ABLE TO GRAB THE CONSOLE YET
Recently, while talking to Financial Times, Jim Ryan, the president of PlayStation has agreed to the fact that more PlayStation 5 stock is on the way. The PS5 has been out for around four months – but it’s a giving a hard time to buyers as they are unable to get hold of it.
Reportedly, Jim Ryan has also made the following statements when asked regarding the availability of the console in the market.
“The pace of the improvement in the supply chain will gather through the course of the year. “So by the time we get to the second half of 2021, you’re going to be seeing really decent numbers indeed.” According to the CEO, the demand was much greater than it was expected. It came as a surprise.
“That, along with the complexities of the supply chain issues, resulted in a slightly lower supply than we initially anticipated,” Ryan told the Financial Times.
The well know, UK-based retailer, Argo, released the stock during the early hours of the morning for days. It seems like a matter of concern for many buyers and gamers as they expressed their anger online. The majority of the gamers have criticized this move, which saw a stock drop at 4 am on 12th March, as they say, it aids scalpers and it becomes difficult for a regular person to get hold of something this early.
Argos is consistently reaching out to customers to tell them that, they are “working hard” to restock the PS5. Also, Argos wants the buyers to keep an eye on the website for pre-ordering.
