PlayStation 5 BT restock: PS5 customers should hurry and check their emails
This week’s first PlayStation 5 stock drop is live on the BT store website.
If you missed out on a PS5 before Christmas, then this week should provide plenty of opportunity to make amends.
It all begins with a restock on the BT website, which is available exclusively to customers with a code. (See links below for the BT store page.)
Once you get through to the PS5 stock page, you’ll have ten minutes to make your purchase. BT has warned customers that the consoles are only available online, and not via its call centres.
“You are now in the PlayStation 5 queue,” the company explains. “Due to the high demand of the PlayStation 5, our site is a lot busier than usual so we’ve placed you in a temporary queue.
“If you’ve arrived here from your BT account area and have a valid code you are ready, you’ll soon be able to access the product page. If you’ve not currently got a code, check back in your BT account to claim one.
“When it’s your turn, you’ll have 10 minutes to enter the website.”
Order your PlayStation 5 console now and it should arrive in time for the release of Elden Ring.
The new fantasy adventure game is developed by Dark Souls studio FromSoftware, with input by George R.R. Martin.
“Rise, Tarnished, and be guided by grace to brandish the power of the Elden Ring and become an Elden Lord in the Lands Between,” reads the official description.
“A vast world where open fields with a variety of situations and huge dungeons with complex and three-dimensional designs are seamlessly connected.
“As you explore, the joy of discovering unknown and overwhelming threats await you, leading to a high sense of accomplishment.”
If you’re hoping to get your hands on a console this week, the shopping tips below should make things easier.
PlayStation 5 general shopping tips…
• Login if you already have an account with the retailer.
• Use multiple devices wherever possible – desktop browser, laptop, tablet, smartphone.
• If the retailer has a dedicated app, download and use the app for purchasing a PS5.
• Sign up for retailer stock alerts where possible. Sites like ShopTo allow users to register interest.
• Follow stock checker accounts and websites, including PS5 UK Stock and Express Gaming.
PlayStation 5 shopping tips when buying from GAME…
• Get familiar with the bundles, so you know which one to target first: Obscure bundles are easier to get, standalones almost impossible. [GAME]
• When alerted, click through to your first bundle of choice as quickly as possible, this will get you into the queue. [GAME]
• If it says it’s failed when trying to checkout, it means that bundle is now OOS. So go back to the bundles and pick another one. [GAME]
• Checking out too much too quickly will give you a 30-60 second timeout, so don’t rush it. If this happens, just wait a bit then try again. [GAME]
