Playstation 5

There’s no limitations with the amazing Sony PS5 and Digital Edition, out now. Experience breath-taking immersion, ray tracing and ultra-high speed SSD on the console, or go all-digital with the Digital Edition.

If you’re somebody who is struggling to find where to buy a PS5 or even where to ore order it from then take some comfort that you aren’t the only person experiencing this. 

We’ve seen interest in the console increase tenfold in recent months, based on recent statistics from google the word “PS 5” is being searched roughly 3.5m times per month meaning about one in every ten households in the UK are after a PlayStation 5 at the moment.

Word on the grapevine is that retailers are in the process of receiving stock as we speak so shortages should be relieved for at least a few weeks in the near future. 

Retailers stocking or allowing PS5 pre orders are quite a rarity at the moment due to many things but mostly Covid-19 and Brexit. And finding accessories for the console can be just as difficult at the minute as you’ll obviously need a top notch dual sense controller or swanky headset to go with it, favourite this page or subscribe to our email list as we will be updating this on the regular as stock is replenished.

So When Can You Actually Buy a PS5?

As you know the console is out of stock for pretty much every retailer at the moment, although some retailers have been holding onto the little stock they do have. Although we have seen more chances to buy a PS5 or to sign up to a waiting list with many retailers promising a lot more stock by the summer.

Should I Buy a PS5 Today?

It depends, if you’ve got it in your hands and the cash in your pocket then I’d say go for it! You don’t know how long the stock will last for and you also don’t know when it will be replenished so if you ha e one in hand it will be hard to say no.

If not or you’re being asked to pre order or sign up to a waiting list then I’d advise double checking with yourself whether you need one right now and if you can afford to part with the best part of £500 at this moment too. 

How Much Is The PS5?

In the UK it has an RRP of £449  for the console on its own, many retailers will be limping bundles together and throwing in games and accessories, but of course at a higher price.

£449 seems to be the going rate at the moment as it’s the same price as the  Xbox Series X.

The PS5 Digital Edition is priced at £359 which makes it much more affordable and it actually has pretty much the same specifications so if you’re after value for money then try and aim for the  digital edition.

Since we mentioned the Microsoft console earlier I thought we may as well reference their alternative console too, the Xbox Series S is priced lower, but we’re not here to talk about Xbox’s anyway!.

PS5 vs PS5 Digital - What's Better?

There’s only a few small differences between these two consoles, hence why they’re priced only around £80 apart. 

The standard Playstation 5 has a disc drive which allows you to play either online games or via disc like the good old days. A real win here is that you can play PS4 games too whether they’re from a disc or online.

The digital version allows you only to play games online as it doesn’t have a disc drive, however you can still play downloaded PS4 games on it too. It also has the same specs as the full PS5. 

What you need to consider is how many PS4 games and physical discs you’ll be playing  and how many you can see yourself purchasing going forward too.

PS5 Backwards Compatibility

If you’re someone that will still want to play your favourite PS4 games on your new Playstation console then there’s some good news! you can! 

It has been announced that around 99% of PS4 games will be playable on the PS5. Which is great news. Too many times we’ve seen companies bring out a beer product then make their old stuff incompatible, thankfully not the new masterpiece from Sony.

Just so you’re aware Select PS4 games will see an increased loading speed on the new console. Leveraging Game Boost.
