PS5 UK stock LIVE – Game has 8,000 Playstation consoles on sale NOW, plus latest at Argos, Smyths and more

World News

GAME has put 8,000 Playstation 5 consoles on sale this morning.

Thousands of gamers are currently online trying to bag themselves one of the sought after PS5s through GAME's online store.

Meanwhile Smyths Toys could also restock the console as early as today, according to stock trackers on social media.

The rumours come from Twitter account @PS5Instant, one of the web's most popular PlayStation stock trackers.

The PS5 was released six months ago to critical acclaim but for millions of gamers it has proven almost impossible to get hold of.

Thanks to parts shortages, coronavirus-related delays and then, incredibly, a giant container ship blocking the Suez Canal and holding up deliveries, supplies to the UK has been incredibly limited.

    CYBERPUNK 2077 RETURNING

    Troubled game Cyberpunk 2077 is returning to PlayStation stores, Sony has confirmed, six months after it was pulled over bugs and compatibility issues.

    The dystopian-themed game was reportedly one of the most expensive ever made and its release was hotly anticipated, but the rollout was mired in problems.

    In December 2020, Sony said it was pulling the game from PlayStation stores around the world citing “customer satisfaction” after multiple complaints about glitches and even health risks.

    But a regulatory disclosure by the game’s maker, CD Projekt Red, on Tuesday said Sony Interactive Entertainment would “reinstate the availability of the digital edition of Cyberpunk 2077 on PlayStation store, effective on 21 June 2021.”

    Sony confirmed the game would be relisted this month. But it warned there could still be issues with the title if played on PlayStation 4 consoles.

      PS5 SHORTAGE ‘TO LAST UNTIL 2022’

      The global PlayStation 5 shortage is likely to continue until next year, leaving frustrated gamers unable to get their hands on a new console for months to come, according to one expert.

      Sony’s machine has been largely out of stock since November and probably won’t be available any time soon due to a shortfall in supply of microchips.

      Speaking to TechRadar on Sunday, analyst Anshel Sag suggested that as a result of the chip crisis, PS5 shortages will drag on for months to come.

      “I honestly don’t see this shortage getting better until next year,” said Sag, a Senior Analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy.

      HOW OUR DAILY LIVES ARE TRACKED BY PHONES, LAPTOPS & EVEN DOORBELLS – DO YOU KNOW HOW YOUR DATA IS BEING COLLECTED?

      AN OXFORD professor has claimed that we are allowing more and more of our personal data to be used – and are being spied on by DOORBELLS. 

      Professor Carissa Veliz  has warned that our cars, TV’s, computers and phones are all tracking our data with our permission. 

      She has explained that the data collection starts from the moment that you wake up, letting smartphone manufacturers, app developers and your mobile phone company know where you are and who you’re with. 

      The professor at the Institute for Ethics in Artificial Intelligence at the University of Oxford believes that people are “unwittingly” giving away personal information every day. 

      Cars are able to log the locations you visit, the speed that the vehicle is driven at, the music played and even the weight of the driver on the seat.
