Update: Yep, as predicted, the limited edition Hogwarts Legacy PS5 controller sold out extremely quickly in the US as well, where pre-orders went live eight hours after the sale of its UK counterpart. You can read more about that in the original story below.
Original Story: As soon as it was revealed yesterday afternoon, we knew that the Hogwarts Legacy DualSense controller would be a hit — and it's safe to say it has been. Available exclusively through the Official PlayStation Store, the limited edition pad went on sale this morning here in the UK — and guess what? It sold out almost immediately.
Sony did warn that stock would be in short supply — a literal limited edition. Visiting the store page now brings up a "currently unavailable" tag, and there's no mention of whether more will be up for sale at a later date.
At the time of writing, the PS5 controller is yet to be made available in the US. Pre-orders open today (the 10th February) at 10AM Pacific, with the pad actually set to ship on the 28th February 2023. If you're American and you're eager to get your hands on one, you'll probably need to be there bang on time.
