Not Got a Pre-Order? Here's Where You Can Buy a PS4 in the UK

Posted by Sammy Barker

Cutting it fine

You really should have pre-ordered a PlayStation 4 a long time ago if you wanted to get one in time for launch, but there is still hope at some stores around the UK. To be in with a chance of nabbing a wild console, you’re probably going to need to consider queuing up soon as we’re expecting the system to sell out quick. Still, Sony is hinting that it’s shipped a lot of units to the region, so don’t give up hope yet.

Nationwide supermarkets such as ASDA, Sainsbury’s, and Tesco have all revealed that they will have additional stock available, while high street stores GAME and Argos have made a similar pledge. Meanwhile, the platform holder’s promised that it will be selling systems at its launch event in London later tonight, but, to be honest, if you’re not reading this on your phone while you wait in line, you’ve probably missed out on your chance to snag one of those.

If you're unlucky at first, then don’t give up hope – the manufacturer claims that it will be replenishing store shelves right through until Christmas, meaning that if you’re proactive and keep in contact with your local retailers, you still stand a good chance of securing a console before Santa slips down your chimney and steals all of your mince pies and sherry. Without further ado, then, these are all the stores in the UK with spare PS4 stock available.

Argos claims that it will have stock available at a number of its stores tonight, though it hasn’t detailed which. You can reserve a console for pickup through here.

Sainsbury's

Your best bet is to call your local shop before making the journey to see if it’s participating. Brilliantly, the retailer’s offering a £10 discount on any next generation title that you buy with the console, limited to one game per customer.

Tesco has created a special store finder tool in order to help you to track down a shop with spare PS4 stock available. Just click here, type your post code into the search box, and you’ll be rewarded with a list of outlets carrying the next generation console.

I live 2mins walk from Boldon Asda so it is tempting to go and hide in the DVDs and await my chance to pounce on a PS4....

Bah. I went into game at 8 before closing and the response was more or less "don't be daft, try Monday morning" manchester . what a joke. I work literally next to tesco Stretford but as I've just found out theyre selling there's probably none left. Will call them anyway. My best bet is as asda Hulme at 6 am. If I get one I'll be getting my deposit refund from game. What a let down.
