New chance to order PS5 from ShopTo after GAME restock sells out in minutes

GAME's latest supply of PS5s has sold out in minutes - again.

Two weeks after an estimated 10,000 consoles were released by the video game retailer - a new supply, said to be even bigger and made up predominantly of Disc Editions - disappeared almost immediately as fans were greeted by hour-long queues on GAME's website.

New batches of PlayStation 5s have frequently sold out in minutes, leaving the majority of gamers frustrated and empty handed.

After selling out less than 90 minutes after going on sale, Twitter restock guru PS5StockAlertUK told fans on Tuesday afternoon that ShopTo had released new stock, though the website was immediately struggling to cope with the surge in traffic.

For those planning to try and order a console from GAME, PS5StockAlertUK has issued two top tips to give fans a better chance of making it to the checkout.

They tweeted: "Use guest checkout as majority who logged in last time got logged out during the process of securing, losing out on time.

"Ensure Apple Pay (iPhone) or Google Pay (Android/Chrome) is enabled for auto-filling your details."

However, they later added a later clarification with regards using Apple Pay or Google Pay.

Anyone who does manage to secure a PS5 can expect their console to be shopped by March 2 if they've selected priority delivery, or by March 8 if using other delivery methods.

Other retailers are not expected to have consoles for some time.

Smyths Toys' website says its next restock isn't due until March, while Argos is also out of stock still following last week's release.

For those with really deep pockets, a gold-played PS5 with crocodile skin controllers is being sold by luxury Russian retailer Caviar for £359,000.

Caviar's description says: "Caviar jewellers could not pass by such a luxurious and very difficult to manufacture golden version of the PlayStation.

"The fastest, most powerful and advanced Sony PS5 is definitely one of the best-selling game consoles. Caviar jewelers could not pass by such a luxurious and very difficult to manufacture golden version of the PlayStation.

"The unique gold PS5 will be released in a limited edition of 9 pcs."
