 Some of UK’s biggest retailers taken offline amid huge PlayStation 5 launch day demand

Gamers hoping to buy a PlayStation 5 on its release day have been met by long queues and crashing websites as retailers struggle to cope with demand.

Thousands of shoppers had been hoping to purchase one of the £450 consoles on its first day of sale – with many complaining on social media after being hit with messages of limited stock, delayed release or long online queues.

Currys PC World has tweeted to say “there will be no PS5s available to buy today” and added they are “working super hard to get more in stock”.

The retailer had earlier put its initial online release time of 9am “on hold”.
