Gamers are still struggling to get their hands on the largely sold out PlayStation 5

That’s admittedly a little vague, but it’s fairly safe to assume the stock drop will arrive sometime in the next few days.

To be in with a chance of bagging one, you need to sign up to be notified on GameByte’s website, here.

The Manchester retailer will then send an invite to purchase a PS5 on its web store to a lucky select few.

The lottery-style system is designed to “protect genuine gamers and combat bots”, the company said.

Stocks remain low at stores across the globe

“We’ll have a limited number of bundles for the disc version of the PS5 available very soon,” GameByte added

“These will be available to the community exclusively through email.”

Consoles will be available to UK residents only and are limited to one per-person.

Sony released the PlayStation 5 worldwide in November 2020.

The full PS5 costs £449/$499, while a Digital Edition without a disc tray is priced at £359/$399.


They’re up against the Xbox Series X (£449) and Xbox Series S (£249), which also hit shelves last November.

Stocks of the consoles remain low at stores across the globe due to a worldwide shortage of the microchips used to power them.

PlayStation boss Jim Ryan recently claimed that it would be much easier to get a PS5 from July onwards as production of the console accelerates.

The PS5 launched with major exclusive games like Spider-Man Miles Morales and a revamped version of Dark Souls for players to enjoy.

Xbox gamers, on the other hand, have a new Halo title to look forward to later this year.
