Unfortunately, it appears that technical issues resulted in the sale of new PS5s being cancelled.
Unfortunately, we had to cancel today’s event due to technical issues. You are a valued customer and will be invited to another exclusive event to give you an opportunity to purchase a PlayStation 5 console once the technical issues are resolved.
ORIGINAL STORY –
Sony has announced that its PlayStation Direct UK store will have PS5 in stock today, but you’ll have to be quick, as there’s limited stock and a queue system in place.
If you head to the site you’ll be placed in the queue, which upon trying it ourselves, took about one minute to actually get into the queue.
PS5s are hard to come by right now, so if you want to try your luck at getting one in time for Christmas, then get your skates on!
The PS5 launched in November 2020 in the US, UK, Europe, and other major regions, but has been plagued by stock shortages ever since. As such, the system is still not readily available more than one year after its release.
