Currys PC World open a Priority Pass system so you can buy a PlayStation 5 when stores open

UK retailer Currys PC World have opened a priority pass system for those who want to buy a PlayStation 5. You will need to fill in a bunch of details including your address and then you will be added to draw, as soon as stock is available in their stores (not online) then you have the chance to get a pass.

This will contain a unique PS5 buying code along with details of the local Currys PC World store you must go to an pick up the console. The passes are only valid for 72hrs so you will need to keep an eye on your email when stores open. You must be over 16 to apply for a pass and you can only enter once.

This lady is very excited as she’s already used her PS5 Priority Pass.

Over the past day or so many retailers have had stock, Amazon UK had a few consoles this morning as did AO, ShopTo and other retailers were dishing them out yesterday.

Sony shipped 4.5 million PlayStation 5 consoles by the end of 2020, roughly in line with the opening sales of the PlayStation 4, which was in similarly high demand. Their ability to keep up is being hampered by issues surrounding the fabrication of new chipsets for the consoles. Produced at TSMC 7nm fabs, under contract from chipset development partner AMD, the supply chain has been under severe strain through 2020 to match demand. There’s a juggling act to satisfy the demand of PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, as well as AMD’s new Ryzen 5000 series CPUs and Radeon 6000 series GPUs. Microsoft have stated that they expect the Xbox Series X to remain in short supply until at least July and we can likely expect a similar situation to apply to the PlayStation 5.
