Get ready to check out Currys at lunchtime today (September 25th) though, as they're getting more PS5 stock to go on sale. We'll send you pre-order details and the best PS5 deals as soon as they're available. Original: PS5 pre-order stock is confirmed to be coming back to one UK retailer from tomorrow, September 25. In the UK, retailer Game will have a small allotment of new PS5 units available for pre-order tomorrow morning. Earlier today, Game's Twitter account notified customers that both versions of the PS5 would be available to pre-order tomorrow in limited quantities.
It's also been claimed that US retailer GameStop will have a limited amount of PS5 stock for pre-orders tomorrow morning. As you can see in the rumour below, GameStop will allegedly only have the standard version of the PS5 in stock, and this new stock of the console will arrive within the week after the November 12 release date in the US. Considering the situation in the UK, it would make sense that Sony is now looking to get more stock out to retailers. The PS5 was unexpectedly made available for pre-order very shortly after a PS5 games showcase on September 16. The entire process was a bit of a mess, with scalpers and bots purchasing PS5 consoles en masse, and it's now unclear whether some orders may even arrive on launch day.
That hype has been driven by the stunning hardware and software reveals we've seen so far, with gamers blown away by awesome PS5 games, as well as the PlayStation 5 consoles and accessories, the latter including a DualSense charging dock, media remote, HD camera, and Pulse 3D gaming headset. Well, now we might just have got our first look at what the PS VR 2's new VR tracking controller is going to look like, with Dutch tech site LetsGoDigital discovering an official Sony patent that shows a brand new motion controller with futuristic design and features. The motion controller, as depicted in the official Sony Interactive Entertainment patent. Right now Sony's motion controller for VR games is the PlayStation Move, but that is just a stick with tracking globe on the end. This new tracking controller looks a lot more like the Oculus Touch controller from Oculus.
To be fair, this approach is somewhat commonplace as certain PlayStation 4 games also went on sale just before it hit store shelves. Playstation 5 consoles are back on sale today and are available to order for delivery in November. The latest generation of Sony's iconic Playstations went on sale earlier this month, but the first batch of pre-orders was snapped up in minutes. Today, September 25, gamers will have another chance to get their hand on the £360 digital PS5 and the £450 disc edition, reports ChronicleLive. Argos has both consoles on sale now, while Game and PC World will release more at around lunchtime. The new PS5 consoles will be delivered on November 19, 2020, which means those lucky enough to get their hands on them will have them before Christmas. Game tweeted fans last night, confirming it would be getting limited stock today; the tweet read: ""It's the moment you've all been waiting for. Limited stock of the #PS5 coming tomorrow [Friday] late morning." PC World also tweeted last night, saying: "Listen up PS5 fans We've stocked up so more lucky gamers can pre-order the #PS5 at lunchtime tomorrow." It's not clear exactly what time the pre-orders will go live, so buyers should keep checking their websites from mid-morning. Argos' batch is already on sale, and demand is expected to be very high from gamers and parents who want to get their hands on one of this year's top Christmas gifts. Head to Argos online here for the £450 version (which includes a disc drive) or here for the £360 digital edition. Head here to Game's online store to buy a PS5 from Game (they go on sale at 'lunchtime' on September 25)
