PS5s are basically out of stock everywhere, and it's kind of disappointing for people who wanted to have one before the end of the year.

Sure, it's not anybody's fault as such, but it doesn't mean you can't be a little irked about the situation anyway, especially as we're now at the point of the year where a lot of people like to sit around and play games.

That's right, there's a candle for that.

The actual candle says "PS5 Candle, smells like you're not getting one."

Sure, it's a little mean, but it actually gets worse. It is, and this is very true to form, also out of stock at the moment. We're not sure if that's part of the joke or not, but we respect it either way for being true to the feeling of getting a PS5.

When will PS5s be back in stock?

As it stands, it's highly unlikely that we'll be seeing any more stock arriving before the end of the year. That means you'll have to wait until 2021 to get your hands on a PS5 if you don't want to pay an insulting amount of money for one.

It's likely that we'll see stock early next year though. However, it's also possible that Brexit could affect this in some way depending on where the stock is coming from, it's hard to say for sure until we know what on Earth is going on with that.
