PS5 stock LIVE – Smyths Toys pre-sale live & Currys release VIP codes plus latest GAME, Very, Argos, Amazon restock news

ARGOS UK has been tipped to drop a massive new batch of Playstation5 consoles next week – and Amazon could dropthis morning.

It comes after the much-sought console dropped at GAME and Very's UK online stores on Monday and Tuesday.

A huge Playstation 5 restock has long been predicted and it seems like we could finally see a proper supply of consoles on the shelves this month.

The PS5 was released six months ago to critical acclaim but for millions of gamers it has proven almost impossible to get hold of.

Thanks to parts shortages, coronavirus-related delays and then, incredibly, a giant container ship blocking the Suez Canal and holding up deliveries, supplies to the UK has been incredibly limited.

    PS5 OWNERS TO GET EARLY PERKS

    PS5 owners can now bag new features earlier than their pals.

    Sony has launched a special scheme that gives you special access to upcoming features – BEFORE they go live for everyone else.

    Normally new features for gadgets and consoles are trialed internally – and then released to the world.

    But some companies will let select users try out features early, to see if they work well.

    Sony is doing just that with PS5 updates, and has launched a new PS5 System Software Beta Program.

    ROCKSTAR GAMES SHUTTING DOWN GRAND THEFT AUTO MULTIPLAYER MODE ON SOME CONSOLES

    Grand Theft Auto developer Rockstar has announced that it is shutting down the game’s popular multiplayer mode on some consoles.

    GTA Online, which is played by more than 100,000 people globally, will cease to exist on Xbox 360 and PS3 from December 16.

    The move will bring an end to the multiplayer mode as well as website stat tracking via the Rockstar Games Social Club, Rockstar said.

    The US company will continue to run the service on Xbox One and PS4, where it’s still going strong nearly eight years on from the launch of GTA 5. “Please note, these changes are strictly for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of GTA Online,” Rockstar said in a statement on Wednesday.

    The shutdown “will have no impact on access to, or progress within, the Grand Theft Auto V Story Mode”, the New York-based firm added.

    BATTLEFIELD 2042 TO BE FILLED WITH BOTS ON PS5 AND XBOX SERIES X

    When Battlefield 2042 was announced, it was revealed that players on Xbox Series X, PS5 and PC would be able to play in servers with up to 128 players at once.

    However, you might not always be playing against humans in those matches, with EA now explaining AI bots will also be taking place in the game. 

    In conversation with The Verge, EA explained that up to 64 'AI soldiers' could be used to fill up empty lobbies depending on factors like your region, platform and the time of day.

    However, the company added that human players will always take priority, therefore it is thought that during busy times you won’t run into many AI.
