PlayStation fans still waiting to get their hands on the latest console should keep their eyes on Argos, according to reports online.
If they can be believed, the next-gen consoles are already in warehouses, waiting for deployment to stores and online.
That’s according to the @UKPS5Notify twitter account, which wrote last night: “I know from the logistics team that Argos currently has stock, just waiting for processing.”
Argo’s PS5 page still reads: “PlayStation 5 is currently unavailable. We’re working hard to make this available as soon as possible.”
But once released, their could be a massive surge in demand.
Earlier this week thousands of gamers queued to get on Curry’s website as the retail giant put Playstation 5 consoles back on sale.
The huge demand caused technical issues and large queues with as many as 150,000 people waiting to get access to the site. Currys is now completely sold out of the PS5s.
Sony launched two versions of the PlayStation 5 in the UK and Europe on November 19, following the consoles’ release in the US a week earlier.
The full PS5 costs £449, while a Digital Edition without a disc tray is priced at £359.
Sony has been working hard to get more consoles on the shelves after gamers cleared out stock globally after the launch.
Sony boss Jim Ryan said “absolutely everything” was sold when speaking in December.
Talking to TASS News Agency, he said: “Everything is sold. Absolutely everything is sold.
“I’ve spent much of the last year trying to be sure that we can generate enough demand for the product.
“And now in terms of my executive bandwidth I’m spending a lot more time on trying to increase supply to meet that demand.”
