Those eagerly awaiting the PS5 can attest to how in demand the new console has been since pre-orders opened just over a week ago. Fans have found it difficult to get their hands on the new model, but luckily, more stock is expected today, 25th September, at some retailers.
The latest to re-open their pre-orders for the highly anticipated PlayStation 5 is GAME.
GAME just launched more PS5 consoles for pre-order
You can order a PS5 via Game for £449.99 and the console will be released on 19th November. But be quick as we don’t expect stock to stay around for long. In fact, good luck getting one if you are even in the queue to purchase.
We experienced problems trying to get one when, after being in a queue for over 40 minutes, the site crashed. And a quick look at Twitter shows that we are not alone in having issues here. It os worth noting that when the site came back to life for us, the order was still in the basket so do keep checking.
Hours of waiting and crashed at checkout ????♀️

Got to the end of my queue to be greeted with a 505 Internal Error message????Don't think I'm meant to have a PS5!

Other retailers such as Currys are expected to receive new stock for pre-orders today, too. There’s a vague time of ‘lunchtime’, so be sure to take a look at our PS5 pre-order guide to see who else has replenished their supplies and when Currys pre-orders re-open.
