A major PS5 recovery is scheduled to hit the US, UK and Ireland this week, with Sony tipping to replace 14 million units of its new gaming console this year.
At least according to PS5 Stock Central on Twitter, a regular tipster for PS5 updates, who noted that the stock is expected to fall on Thursday, January 7. We have not been able to confirm this information, so it’s worth taking it with a pinch of salt, but the PS5 Stock Central has been reasonably reliable in the past.

Retailers expect stock to arrive for orders Jan. 7. If the stock has not arrived by then, we can wait until the 12th and 14th for dealers to get stock due to Brexit and shipments are a bit of a sh * t show off. # PS5 January 5, 2021
The situation has not been helped by scalpers using robots to spot new PS5 stocks the moment it arrives. The bots end up buying as many consoles as possible to sell for hugely inflated prices. Some retailers have taken steps to prevent this by limiting PS5 orders to one per person, although this has not stopped scalpers from trying to grab as many PS5 devices as possible.
Since it’s been almost two months since the release of the PS5, we hope that Sony has started producing more consoles at a faster pace. Given ambition to move millions of PS5 consoles throughout the yearWe can risk guessing that Sony has increased production, even though there have been no official words about this.
Microsoft is in the same position as Sony, with the Xbox Series X in stock at pretty much every retailer we check – take a look at where to buy the Xbox Series X item for more information. But Microsoft has appealed to AMD to help it bring more Xbox Series X consoles to market.
As such, it currently appears that both Sony and Microsoft are preparing to have more of their new game consoles available this year. 2021 is set to be a big year for the next generation of games, what with such as Gran Turismo 7, Horizon Forbidden West, Halo Infinite and Fable 4 on the horizon.
