    BIZARRE BUG

    You may be playing second-rate versions of games on your new PlayStation 5 without even realising it.

    A bizarre bug means Sony's next-gen console doesn't make it clear whether you're playing the PS4 or PS5 variants of some of your favourite titles.

    According to a report from Eurogamer, players of the latest Call of Duty are most likely to run afoul of the issue.

    Those who choose the Download All option after purchasing the game's Ultimate Edition or Cross-Gen Bundle from the PlayStation Store get both the old-gen and next-gen versions.

    And according to Eurogamer, the PS5 may automatically boot up the PS4 version of the game when you hit play.

    SCALPERS BEWARE

    Plenty of stories have appeared in recent weeks of online scammers selling consoles at extortionate prices – but this could soon be against the law.

    WILL SMITH SURPRISES TEEN CANCER PATIENT WITH PS5

    Will Smith has teamed up with Gamespot for a random act of kindness this Christmas, and donated a PS5 to a teenager with cancer.

    The Hollywood actor gifted the console to Texas resident Aiden, who was diagnosed with the disease in April and had to self-isolate from his father Chuck during chemotherapy.

    In a clip posted online yesterday, Smith tells Aiden to open the bag that he’s sent to them, revealing a PlayStation 5, DualSense controller, and a GameStop gift card in partnership with GameStop Giving.

    At the end, he says, “You can’t even get these yet” in a clear reference to the worldwide stock shortage of the PS5.

    According to a report by AsiaOne, the man’s ruse worked at first and his wife was convinced the games console was an air purifier.

    HOW CAN I GET A PS5?

    Rather than waiting for individual retailers to let you know when an item is back in stock, you should sign up to a stock checker.

    These online tools monitor a range of different retailers to find out when a product is available to buy again.

    Some will send a push notification to your phone when the product you're monitoring comes back into stock, while others will send you an email.

    For example, Stock Informer is currently monitoring PS5 stock at a range of different retailers including eBay, Amazon, Currys PC World and Very.co.uk.

    Playstation5stock.com focuses purely on the latest Sony console but only monitors nine retailers.
