Here’s where you can buy the elusive console in July

Update July 15: The PS5 is in stock at Game, Very and BT Shop. It sold at EE and Studio. Read on for more information.

Since its launch in 2020, the PlayStation 5 has been ridiculously hard to come by. Supply chain issues resulting from the coronavirus pandemic have all but halted production of Sony’s latest games console.

Fortunately, things have improved in recent months. The PS5 has been roughly in stock at at least one retailer since late April, with Game and the BT shop, as well as several independent retailers like The game collection and To analyse lead the charge.

We expect this flurry of console restocks to continue throughout the summer. But while restocks are becoming more frequent, buying a single console is still more difficult than snagging a bundle, with standalone consoles selling out in the blink of an eye. What about digital consoles (packages included)? Well, these have practically disappeared off the face of the earth. But never fear, because we’re here to help, whether you’re looking for a bundle or the standalone PS5 disc and PS5 digital edition consoles.

If you’re still on the hunt for the elusive PlayStation 5, we’ve got a tip for you: sit back on this live blog and watch your real-time alerts. Our aim is to guarantee you a next-gen machine, as well as provide you with details on the best games and accessories to grab with your new console, as well as the latest game reviews.

What is PlayStation Stars?

Yesterday Playstation announced a new loyalty program called “Playstation Stars” but what exactly is it? According to Playstation-Blogit’s a free service launching later this year that promises rewards for “completion of a variety of campaigns and activities”.

A “monthly check-in” will also allow players to receive rewards for time spent playing games, while other campaigns require you to “win tournaments, earn specific trophies, or even be the first player to platinum a hit title in your local time zone. .”

There will also be “digital collectibles” which apparently caused a stir, as the company later had to clarify that this would not mean NFTs (non-fungible tokens). The blog describes them as “digital representations of things PlayStation fans appreciate, including figurines of beloved and iconic characters from games and other forms of entertainment, as well as cherished devices that draw on history. of Sony’s innovation”.

We’ll learn more about the Playstation Stars program when it launches later this year. You can find out more about the Playstation-Blog.

‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ PS5 News

Bad news for those waiting for a remaster of Red Dead Redemption 2. Rumors suggest Rockstar canned the PS5 version so it could work on GTA 6, according to a reliable leaker Tez2.

Rockstar only has one game in development, and that’s Grand Theft Autoso if that’s true, that means he’s putting his full efforts into the game right now. We’ll let you know if we hear more.

Looking for a PS5 racing wheel?

games like Gran Turismo 7 are at their best when using a steering wheel. It’s a much more visceral and very satisfying experience being able to steer around corners rather than using a controller, so which one is better?

(Thrustmaster)

We recommend the Thrustmaster T248 (£279.99, Game.co.uk). “It has three types of force feedback at its disposal, magnetic shift paddles so that shifting is tactile, and has plenty of buttons for customization, as well as pedals for braking in the traditional way rather than hold down a button,” our writer said in their review of the wheel, which made an appearance in our roundup of the best PS5 accessories.
