The PlayStation5 is the most sought-after gadget on the planet right now with gamers desperately trying to get their hands on a new console.

Following its November release, Brits have found it nearly impossible to find Sony’s latest gaming console.

This morning, Currys dropped new stock and it wasn’t long before the overwhelming demand saw over 100,000 people queueing to gain access to the site.

A message on the website read: “Huge demand has meant we need to place you in a short queue,” as thousands waited online, but shortly after 9AM, the electronics retailer declared that they had sold out of the coveted PS5

“We have now SOLD OUT of the PS5. Please keep an eye on our website for new console updates,” the website read.

Gamers took to Twitter to complain about site crashes due to the demand  and questioning whether they were real people.

“So you’re telling me all of these 38,600 people are actually people? How many are bots. Come on Currys sort it out,” said one fan.

Another tweeted: “I wonder if Currys are getting suspicious that they've got 10,000 PS5's sold to someone called 'bot3557211+4660'?”

Now, fans will be looking for the next UK release.

When will be the next PS5 release in the UK?

Amazon, Currys, John Lewis and Argos are all tipped to have new stock in February while Smyths Toys confirmed they will have availability in “February 2021”.

Earlier this week Game opened pre-orders on the PS5 and PS5 Digital Editions but they were sold out within 40 minutes.

Here is the latest PS5 stock updates from UK retailers:
