UPDATE: New GAME customers are being told that the console is sold out, although fans in the queue are still able to make a purchase.
Despite the latest reports that the stock has already been depleted, it’s worth checking the GAME website and refreshing the page a few times, just in case customers drop out and more consoles go on sale.
ORIGINAL: The PS5 console is back in stock for the second week running in the UK, as GAME becomes the latest retailer to get stock.
Fans in the UK can join the queue on the GAME website to pre-order a PlayStation 5 console for a February delivery.
According to the listing on GAME, PlayStation 5 consoles will be sent out on February 5.
Both the PS5 Digital Edition and regular disc versions are in stock at GAME, provided you can get hold of one.
At the time of writing, there’s a queue to pre-order the console, so good luck getting hold of one.
In addition to the basic console packages – which are priced at £359 for the disc-less version and £450 for the regular version – GAME is also selling console bundles.
This includes the PS5 with additional games such as Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Demon’s Souls.
The PS5 console bundles also include additional controllers, as well as the PS5 HD Camera.
It’s the second time in less than a week that PS5 consoles have been re-stocked in the UK.
The last time the PS5 was back in stock, consoles sold out within about a minute.
While this is clearly far from ideal, PS5 re-stocks are starting to happen with more regularity, which is good news for fans.
Some retailers allow customers to register their interest in the PS5, which should result in alerts when the consoles become available.
Express Online will also provide regular stock updates for anybody looking to bag a new console.
Customers who do eventually manage to get hold of a PS5 are in for a treat.
The super-sized console is packing some serious power, offering frame-rates of up to 120 FPS, as well as 4K resolution and ray-tracing technology.
Not only do games look great and perform better, but the DualSense controller adds an interesting new dynamic to certain games and genres.
Indeed, the first thing you should do when firing up your new console is to check out Astro’s Playroom, which does a fantastic job of showcasing Sony’s DualSense game pad.
You can feel different textures through the controller, while resistant trigger buttons better replicate the feeling of firing a weapon.
