UK retailer GAME are sending out emails to customers to let them know that they will have a limited amount of PlayStation 5 consoles available for purchase on launch day, November 19th. However, these will be online only sales, due to Coronavirus restrictions across the U.K. you will not be able to stop by a store and buy one. Presumably you will be able to order online and then run round to the shop to pick up your shiny new console.
No further details have been announced but if you are hoping to get a console then load up the GAME website as early as possible on the 19th and start hammering that F5 key.
In other PlayStation 5 news, Sony have released a huge FAQ covering the console, games, DualSense, PS5 camera and lots more.
We’ve also got a review of another PlayStation 5 game. BugSnax, which will be available for free to all PlayStation Plus subscribers on the console launch day. “Bugsnax is a unique and wonderful experience, and a must-play for anyone who can get their hands on it,” we said. “If you’re lucky enough to have secured a PS5, make sure you make the most of PlayStation Plus and pick up your free copy while it lasts. If not, this game is still well worth your hard-earned cash.”
Sony’s latest TV advert for PlayStation 5 has a small disclaimer at the bottom of the screen that reveals that Gran Turismo 7, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and Returnal are all expected to launch before the middle of 2021. Horizon Forbidden West is going to take longer and will arrive in the second half of 2021, I would guess that’s going to be the big Christmas release for Sony.
You can see the advert below, or,. you know, just turn on your television as it’s showing in the UK right now.
