    A retro PlayStation 5 styled after the PS2 has been pulled from an online store after sickos sent “credible threats” to its creators.

    American tech firm Sup3r5 released the modified console last week but has now cancelled all sales until further notice. Boasting a throwback all-black design, the machine started at $650 and only 304 were produced – a nod to the PS2's March 4, 2000 release date.

  • SONY TIPPED TO BE MASS PRODUCING 18MILLION CONSOLES READY FOR STORES

    The console might be far easier to find in 2021, experts claim.

    Sony is tipped to be mass-producing 18million consoles ready for stores.

    Industry news site Digitimes reports that many more are on the way.

    “Production for Sony's PS5 games consoles is likely to reach 16.8-18million units in 2021,” Digitimes insiders wrote.

    Both versions of the PS5 come with very similar features.

    Additionally, both PS5 models come with a free game pre-installed.

  • GAMES TO BE RELEASED THIS YEAR

    Dozens of PS5 games are set to be dropped this year – but many don't yet have release dates.

    Here are titles coming out in 2021:

  • GRAND REVEAL

    A secret “enhanced” version of Grand Theft Auto 5 may be in development.

    Eagle-eyed fans think they've found proof that an improved GTA 5 is coming to the PS5 – possibly as soon as this year.

    The game first launched seven years ago, but the Rockstar Games title is still wildly popular.

    This streak of success could continue on next-gen consoles, according to a recent post on GTAforums.

    In a post, top insider Tez2 says that there are references to Red Dead Redemption 2's game engine.

    RDR2 is another more recent Rockstar Games entry, acclaimed for its stunning graphics.

  • WILL THERE BE A PS6 IN THE FUTURE?

    It seems extremely likely that Sony will release a PlayStation 6 console at some point in the future – and the company has trademarked PS names up to PS10.

    But Screenrant.com says it'll be at least another seven years before we get that based on the pattern of console releases.

    There were six years between the launch of the original PlayStation and the PS2, six years between the PS2 and PS3, seven years between the release of the PS3 and PS4, and seven years between the PS4 and the PS5.

    “Creating the best possible experience for all of the Wizarding World and gaming fans is paramount to us so we are giving the game the time it needs.

    “Hogwarts Legacy will be released in 2022.”

    It was due to be one of the big releases of 2021.

  • LIMITED NUMBER AVAILABLE FOR US CUSTOMERS

  • NITENDO SWITCH DOMINATES HARDWARE SALES IN US DUE TO PS5 SUPPLY CONSTRAINTS

    The home/handheld Nitendo Switch console was the top hardware of the year, according to industry-tracking firm The NPD Group.

    “Nintendo Switch was the best-selling hardware platform in units and dollars not only in December 2020, but the entire year,” NPD analyst Mat Piscatella said.

    The Switch easily outsold its last-gen competition in the Xbos One and PS4m and continues to outperform the PlayStation 4 and Xbox Series X/S due to supply constraints.

    It may not seem like much, but it's enough to have some gamers thinking it could be a sign Argos are readying for an imminent PS5 stock drop.

  • 'BEWARE OF BOGUS LISTINGS' PS5 CONSUMERS WARNED

    Customers after the latest PS5 are being warned to be on the lookout for bogus listings on Amazon UK from marketplace sellers.

    The listing claimed to be selling a PS5 for less than £200.

    The console's RRP sits at £449 for the console with a 4K Blu-Ray disc drive, and £349 for the Digital version.

    The @PS5StockAlertUK Twitter said: “HotStock has notified about a PS5 drop by Amazon UK for £179.99. Please do not purchase this as it is not the PS5. We’ll be investigating how this came into play. Thank you.”

    Sony's smash-hit PlayStation 5 might be far easier to find in 2021, experts claim.

    PS5 units have been near-impossible to find for many would-be customers.

    Since the console's launch in early November, the PS5 has been largely sold out across the board.

    Even stock-refreshes have been snapped up in seconds, as desperate gamers (and their friends and family) raced to bag a console before Christmas.

  • HARRY POTTER DELAY

    Harry Potter spin-off Hogwarts Legacy will now launch in 2022, Warner Bros. Games has announced.
