The PlayStation 5 officially went on sale in the UK today (November 19).
Unfortunately, many avid gamers across Kent, have spent launch day trying and failing to get their hands on one.
Amazon – out of stock. Website says ‘Currently unavailable. We don’t know when or if this item will be back in stock.’
Game – out of stock. When you scroll down the Playsation 5 landing page, the words ‘out of stock’ greet you, with no indication of when more will be available.
Asda – seemingly out of of stock. On the page for the console the site gives you no option to purchase.
– Adam Vjestica, senior staff writer for website TechRadar gives his verdict on the PS5
The PlayStation 5 doesn’t make the best first impression due to its gargantuan size and divisive two-tone colour scheme.
But once you turn it on, everything changes. Sony’s next-gen console delivers the sort of wow factor that gamers will be pining for, with a gorgeous new UI (visuals) and lightning-fast load times.
The PS5’s exclusive lineup of games, such as Demon’s Souls, continues the company’s impressive track record of delivering desirable first-party titles – and it’s great that we can play our existing library of PS4 games,
But even though the PS5 is capable of 4K resolution at 120 frames per second, it’s the new DualSense controller which really steals the show.
With its haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, the DualSense is able to create a variety of convincing sensations.
As if by magic, it can recreate the feeling of rainfall in your hands, and the adaptive triggers can change resistance on the fly to mimic the sensation of pulling back a bow string.
It’s a phenomenal feature.
Though you’ll struggle to find one in stock, it’s easy to see why the PS5 is in demand.
Don’t give up, though – the wait is most definitely worth it
