Gamers battle queues and crash websites as they rush to buy new PlayStation 5


Many took to social media to express their frustration at the delay in being able to order the £450 console, with some retailers pushing back stock releases and others reporting no units available. The PS5 has been hailed as a “new era for gaming” by makers Sony, with the new system promising amazing graphics and faster loading times.

Thousands went online yesterday in the hope of buying one, with online queues forming at Currys, Amazon, John Lewis, Game andVery.

Dozens could be seen waiting outside Game’s branch on Lord Street in Liverpool city centre to collect pre-launch orders placed in September, while some bids on eBay went beyond £1,000.
