Playstation has released an exciting update for gamers who missed out on getting a PS5 when it was released last week.

The latest PS5 console went on sale across the UK last Thursday, but with shops closed for lockdown, it was a race for many hoping to get their hands on one.

Pre-orders sold out in minutes earlier this year and lots of shoppers were left disappointed when forced to search online to buy the console on release day, due to non-essential retailers being shut.

Online retailers including Game, John Lewis, Amazon, Argos, Currys and Very found the PS5 selling out incredibly quickly and frustrated customers were met with website glitches.

Fans of the console saw websites crashing and empty baskets amid the rush to buy the PS5.

But there could be some good news for people still hoping to get a PS5 in time for Christmas.

Playstation made an announcement on their Twitter feed saying more consoles would go on sale.

They said: "We want to thank gamers everywhere for making the PS5 launch our biggest console launch ever.

"Demand for PS5 is unprecedented, so we wanted to confirm that more PS5 inventory will be coming to retailers before the end of the year - please stay in touch with your local retailers."

Gamers responded with mixed reactions and concerns over 'scalpers' using 'bot' software to buy up all the stock.

One user replied: "Would've been nice if you could clamp out the scalpers that use bots and that to gather consoles."

Another agreed: "I'm lucky to have one but this scalper situation makes me so angry! Lots of decent gamers out there who cannot get their hands on one due to scalper greed. Look at MSI, even they were scalping their own products, it's rife."

One gamer wrote: "For people to bag them and then sell them on ebay for double or triple the price, what are you going to put a stop on this so genuine people can get them for their childs xmas?"

But one said: "This is great news. I'm absolutely loving mine so I hope everyone else manages to get one as soon as possible."
