The Sun (of all places) is reporting that Sony have flown in three Boeing 747’s worth of PS5 stock for the UK, ready for the Christmas rush.
The report is surprisingly detailed and reveals that the “Twelve articulated lorries were needed to ferry the PS5s from the airport’s cargo hub to distribution centres around the UK,” and that there were “almost 50 pallets full of the gaming kit.”
They even have a picture of the plane full of PS5’s landing at Heathrow, someone is clearly very eager to get a PS5. Unfortunately it’s a very boring looking boring 747 rather than looking like this jet which is currently flying around the UAE.
The third plane landed yesterday and it seems some of the consoles have already hit the market as Amazon had both digital and disk consoles available yesterday. In fact Amazon have had PlayStation 5 stock almost every day for the past week so if you are looking to grab a console that seems to be the best place.
GAME are also listing new PS5 bundles to go on sale on 19th of November but it is suggested they may be on sale as early as November 11th, You can find all of the bundles here.
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.

PS5 Digital Edition
The PS5StockAlertUK Twitter feed has commented on the air freighting of PS5 consoles. “Air freighting consoles will help many people purchase a PS5 console for Christmas, but will also result in a longer patch during Q1 2022 once Sony switches back to shipping consoles via sea,” they warn.
