UK retailer Game have announced they will have PlayStation 5 consoles for sale this morning, Tuesday 12th October. Game will have PS5 stock of both the Digital and Disc versions of the consoles as well as a bunch of bundles. Unfortunately GAME have a tendency to throw all sorts of pointless rubbish in to their bundles such as t-shirts and hats, all of which increases the price of buying a console.

A queuing system will be in operation for the GAME PS5 stock and if anyone tries to purchase more than one console then they find their additional orders cancelled.
You may want to keep your eye on other retailers who may be releasing PS5 stock around the same time. To grab a console you are going to need the links, which we have compiled below.

Although resupplies have been limited by the amount of consoles that Sony can produce customers in the UK are suffering a double whammy as there is a massive shortage of haulage drivers. This has meant stores are experiencing lengthy delays in getting all sorts of products, including the PS5.
A debate surrounding the act of scalping – and, more crucially, the use of bots to automatically order consoles and other expensive tech – has been called for by a number of UK Members of Parliament (MPs).
In a nutshell, they wish to block “the resale of gaming consoles and computer components at prices greatly above Manufacturer’s Recommended Retail Price”, to “[deny] unscrupulous vendors the chance to make themselves vast profits at the expense of genuine gamers and computer users, while also deterring fraudulent cybercriminal activity,” reports VGC.
