THE wait is over!
The Playstation 5 goes on sale in the UK at 8am this morning – and if it’s anything like last week’s launch of the XBox Series X and S, you can expect consoles to sell out extremely fast.
Those fortunate enough to have secured pre-orders from GAME will in theory be able to collect their consoles in person between 8am and 2pm, although some GAME stores are scheduled to open 30 minutes later.
If you’ve not yet bagged a pre-order, chances are your morning will be spent scouring the internet looking for places where PS5s are still in stock.
Don’t worry, though, you can follow all the latest news and in-stock locations here on this live blog throughout the day.
One place promising stock is Amazon.co.uk, with the links you need found here (disc version) and here (digital version)

The PlayStation 5 launched for much of the world on November 12.
But in the UK, fans have had to wait until Thursday, November 19 to bag one.
Pre-orders sold out very quickly, and many of those units will start arriving today.
Some retailers have warned that pre-ordered PlayStations won’t arrive until much later – potentially even after Christmas.
If you’re still trying to buy one, you might be in luck.
A few retailers – including Amazon – have promised to release additional stock today.
For instance, Amazon will be flogging fresh orders from noon, if you’re fast enough.
The console is in huge demand, and will be high on many Christmas lists this year.
But it’s got a big rival: Microsoft’s Xbox Series X.
When it comes to the console war, both PS5 and Xbox are winning – as they’re selling out across the board.
Will you be one of the lucky ones to bag a next-gen console? Or have you got one already? Let us know!
