The PS5 inventory shortage took Sony a big hit on the consumer site Trustpilot.
PS5 restocking issues have remained constant since console pre-orders began rolling out in late 2020.
PlayStation 5 consoles typically sold out within minutes of going on sale, leading to months of frustration for gamers.
Things are not being made easier by the robots and speculators, who are reselling units at inflated prices.
As Sony failed to communicate with customers, fans started posting negative comments on sites like Trustpilot.
After the PlayStation 5 launch, the Sony UK Trustpilot’s rating has dropped to just 1.7 stars.
Reviewers criticized Sony for poor planning, and for failing to communicate when PlayStation 5 consoles return to stock.
Obviously, it’s not a complete disaster for Sony, as the PS5 continues to prove popular whenever it’s on sale.
Things should also improve in February, especially if the reports of significant inventory drops prove accurate.
There are even reports that Argos may have PS5 stockpiles in the early hours of January 24th.
While there has been a lot of conflicting reports about the restocking of Argos, some claim that the units will be available from 1am UK time.
“Argos employees have reported handling multiple PS5 machines in preparation for launch,” PS5 UK Stock tweeted. “Several employees said we should expect a drop between 1 am and 4 am today or unfortunately tomorrow night.”

Although Sony may have had a hit with Trustpilot, anyone lucky enough to actually secure a console would have it on hand.
The new PlayStation has some great features to go along with this killer launch suite.
Most of all is the DualSense controller, which uses advanced haptic feedback to mirror the action on the screen.
In games like Astro’s Playroom, for example, you’ll feel it when your character walks on the ice, or is blown backward by gusts of wind.
Adaptive stimuli are also used to better mimic the sensation of firing or retracting bow tendons.
Adaptive triggers are best shown in games like Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, Fortnite, and Borderlands 3, where different weapons offer different levels of resistance.
It will be interesting to see how games like Horizon Zero Dawn 2 use adaptive triggers and haptic feedback, especially given the focus on hunting massive monsters with high-tech crossbows.
