It’s turning out to be a great week for PS5 customers, as the console once again goes on sale in the UK.
Just a few hours after showing up on John Lewis, the PS5 is available to purchase from AO.
According to PS5 Stock UK, the PlayStation 5 is available with Ratchet and Clank: A Rift Apart and Spider-Man Miles Morales.
The console is on sale for £570 at AO, although you’ll need to hurry if you want to grab one.
Customers should also note that despite the website showing high demand, the consoles are in stock.
Indeed, if you want to purchase the PlayStation 5 from AO, it’s best to use the app to place an order.
“It shows ‘high demand’ all the time, but no add to basket button,” reads a PS5 Stock UK tweet.
“Use the AO mobile app, the add to basket button appears and disappears in a cycle on the app.”
In addition to AO, the PlayStation 5 can also be pre-ordered from the GAME website, where consoles will be delivered in January.
If you are hoping to pick up a PS5 this week, then the following shopping tips should help.
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]
The AO stock drop comes with two of the best games on the PlayStation 5.
Ratchet and Clank: A Rift Apart really takes advantage of the system, especially the DualSense controller and SSD drive.
The SSD provides lightning fast loading, specifically when transitioning between scenes.
Spider-Man Miles Morales, on the other hand, showcases the console’s ray-tracing capabilities.
“In the latest adventure in the Marvel’s Spider-Man universe, teenager Miles Morales is adjusting to his new home while following in the footsteps of his mentor, Peter Parker, as a new Spider-Man.
“But when a fierce power struggle threatens to destroy his new home, the aspiring hero realises that with great power, there must also come great responsibility. To save all of Marvel’s New York, Miles must take up the mantle of Spider-Man and own it.”
