Sony has launched their direct store in the UK for PlayStation hardware, accessories, games and more and that’s a good bet if you are trying to get a console. The UK PlayStation Direct store has followed on from the German store that arrived on 8th November, with France, Belgium and Luxembourg also getting a regional store. This follows on from the US version that launched in 2019.
While the US store cooked up a registration and raffle system for distributing whatever PS5 stock came into the store, the European stores have gone for direct sales
The PS5StockAlertUK Twitter feed has previously 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 warned. That does seem to be the case, PS5 Stock UK is extremely hard to come by at present.
