Trying to find a new PS5 hasn’t been easy for PlayStation fans, in fact, it’s been almost impossible. This next-gen console sold out soon after launch with most retailers, and even Sony, struggling to keep up with the huge demand. Luckily, gamers who happen to be subscribed to BT broadband or EE’s mobile network are in with the chance of getting hold of a PS5 before Christmas.
Both BT and EE, who are now part of the same company, have confirmed to Express.co.uk that they will have stock tomorrow, Thursday December 3.
That’s good news but things get even better as those who order will receive their shiny new gaming machine before December 25.
So how do you get hold of one of these sought after machines?
BT says that the PlayStation 5 will be available to all existing customers who order online. All you have to do to get a PS5 is head online and use the MyBT app or website to access the offer.
Meanwhile, existing EE pay monthly mobile handset customers will also be able to order a console online via the firm’s “Add to Plan” service.
Another bonus of ordering via is that the PS5 can be added to the cost of your price plan and then split over 11 interest-free installments making this £459 gadget a little more affordable.
There’s no word on exactly what time the consoles will be available online at BT or EE but it’s worth getting up early as they are sure to sell out quickly.
If you do manage to get your hands on a PS5 console tomorrow then you’re in for a treat.
This next-gen device is more powerful than anything we’ve seen before which means games not only look better but also load at much faster speeds.
The DualShock controller features more immersive haptics which can mimic the slightest changes in the on-screen action and dynamic adaptive triggers make things feel far more realistic.
There’s also plenty of games to try.
Not only will Sony launch a selection of brand new games in time for the launch of the console, but you can also play 99% of the PS4 library.
In terms of brand new releases, the pick of the bunch has got to be Demon’s Souls, which is a remake of the PS3 classic.
Spider-Man Miles Morales is also a lot of fun, while Sackboy: A Big Adventure is a charming platform game with exceptional level design.
