GAMERS have been left disappointed when they failed to snap up a console at major retailers.
John Lewis dropped PS5 stock early yesterday but it did not take long for them to sell out.
Some customers reported being able to add a PS5 console to their shopping basket – but frustratingly, were not able to pay for it.
An apologetic John Lewis said: “We’ve had extremely high levels of demand for our website today.
“As expected, the PS5 has been incredibly popular and as such, is now sold out. We’re sorry to any customers unable to buy it.”
Meanwhile a rumoured drop at Currys failed to materialise.
And Argos said it is “working hard” to restock PS5s – and admitted it has launched an investigation after multiple orders were cancelled.
Furious shoppers took to social media to fume at the high street giant and catalogue retailer after a PS5 restock earlier this week.
Since its launch last November, millions of gamers around the world have struggled to bag a PlayStation 5.
