Unfortunately, the PlayStation 5 is sold out around the world, and while we’re keeping track of PS5 stock to help you to find a console, systems are inevitably appearing on eBay at upwards of $1,500 or £1,000 a pop. A quick browse on the auction website reveals boxed consoles are being flogged at a 200 per cent mark up, as scalpers capitalise on stock shortages. Officially, the PS5 retails for $499.99 or £449.99, with the PS5 Digital Edition coming in cheaper.

While this was inevitable, it’s particularly disheartening to see. Sony is yet to announce PS5 sales numbers, but it has confirmed in an interview that every single console has been sold. It’s now working to improve its supply chain so that it can service as many customers as possible before Christmas. Our recommendation is to keep an eye on our PS5 stock article and don’t succumb to scalpers.
