PS5 stock updates LIVE – GAME 'to restock with 15,000 consoles', plus latest updates at Very, Argos, Currys and Amazon

GAME may restock with as many as 15,000 new consoles very soon as thousands of fans still remain desperate to get their hands on one.

Game’s official website says its updating its PlayStation 5 bundles to include a new release date.

The bundles are preparing to go live on March 8, with Gamingintel.com predicting that is the date to watch.

John Lewis dropped PS5 stock recently, but it did not take long for the major retailer to sell out.

And Argos says it is "working hard" to restock PS5s – after launching an investigation after multiple orders were cancelled.

Since its launch last November, millions of gamers around the world have struggled to bag a PlayStation 5.

    'FLAWLESS GAME'

    A PS5 player said the God of War upgrade "has made the game flawless".

    He shared a clip of the game on Twitter.

    A person replied: "This game is one of the best game I’ve ever played in my life. It’s such an amazing experience playing it."

    Another added: "Currently replaying it now on PS5 and honestly it’s arguably the best looking game on PS5."

    …BUT THE CONSOLE WAS NOT WORKING

    Katherine did a follow-up clip sharing the “reality” of the auction, explaining that they later found out the PS5 wasn’t working.

    She said: “They tested it, it stopped working. So it is broken. We will try to get it fixed.”

    WOMAN REVEALS HOW SHE GOT A PS5 FOR £120

    A woman has revealed how she bagged a PS5 and others goodies from John Lewis in an auction for just £120. 

    Katherine Chalmers showed how she “hit the jackpot” after putting in a bid in the blind auction.

    She also managed to get five bean bags, a mug, curtain poles, wool, a dog bed, a mirror, a soap dispenser and a bath caddy – along with the popular console. 

    Katherine wrote in a TikTok video: “We put a bid for a random pallet of ex-John Lewis goods. It’s a blind auction so we didn’t know what would be in the box.

    “We paid £120 including delivery. This is pallet arrival day. This was a very exciting gloomy February day.”

    'GOLDEN ROCK'

    "The case of this exclusive gadget is made in the original jewellery technique, which adds volume and texture to the model," Caviar says.

    "The inspiration for the designers was the unique geometry of the gold ore and the graceful, beautiful outlines of the rock.

    "That is why the console was named Golden Rock."

    LIMITED EDITION

    Caviar claims the golden PS5 will be assembled from eight sheets that cover the exterior, cast in 18-carat gold.

    Apparently, the 4.5 kilos of added bling doubles the weight of the customised machine.

    The extravagant gadget is limited edition, and only nine will be produced, according to Caviar's website.

    GAMER'S TREASURE

    A gold-plated PlayStation 5 has gone on sale online slapped with a gargantuan price tag and coupled with crocodile skin controllers.

    Luxury Russian retailer Caviar is selling the bougie machine for $500,000 (£359,000) – meaning it should at least be safe from pesky scalpers.

    According to the store's listing, the dazzling device is a "mixture of rationality and brightness, pure fine lines, and deliberate luxury".

    It adds: "Caviar jewellers could not pass by such a luxurious and very difficult to manufacture golden version of the PlayStation."

        GOVERNMENT PETITION TO OUTLAW SCALPING PASSES 14,000 SIGNATURES

        A petition calling for the Government to crackdown on scalpers has hit 14,127 signatures and counting.

        The petition has smashed an initial target of 10,000 – the amount required to gain an official response to the petition. If it reaches 100,000 by its deadline date of June 10, the Government will consider it for debate in Parliament.

        Blurb on the petition page reads: This practice is most prevalent in the buying and re-selling of event tickets but also has a significant impact on the sales of trainers/clothes and technology.

        “The most recent case in point is the launch of the PlayStation 5 and X Box Series X consoles.

        “Both pre-orders and launch day stock were sold out instantaneously and then thousands of listings appeared on eBay at over double the RRP. A reseller group claimed to have been able to secure 3500 of these.”

        JOYSTICK MALFUNCTION

        Sony is facing a representative lawsuit after gamers complained about a "joystick malfunction".

        The issue that's been branded the 'drift' after several users commented on the suspected fault online.

        Gamers had a similar issue with the Nintendo Switch.

        IS YOUR PS5 CONTROLLER ‘DRIFTING’?

        Some gamers are suing Sony over an alleged issue with PlayStation 5 controllers that causes them to “drift” during gameplay.

        In a class action suit recently filed in the US, a law firm claims that faulty controller joysticks are registering movement even when a player doesn’t touch them.

        They claimed that the next-gen console’s DualSense joypad – which costs just shy of £60 – is “defective”, Eurogamer reports.

        The bug “results in characters or gameplay moving on the screen without user command or manual operation of the joystick,” the filing reads.

        “This defect significantly interferes with gameplay and thus compromises the DualSense controller’s core functionality.”
