Well, the next-gen in gaming is now the current-gen in gaming and it's making the last current-gen in gaming look, well, slow.
It turns out that companies are definitely aware of this issue, so if you don't mind going a little outside of the box, you can get a PS5 from some pretty strange places.
How about your phone provider? Yeah, EE is doing PS5s.
How can you get a PS5 from EE?
As explained over on the website "PlayStation 5 is currently only available online, and you’ll need to be an EE customer on a pay-as-you-go monthly handset plan to purchase one with us. As long as you’re within the first 17 months of your contract and pass credit checks, you’ll be able to buy a PS5 on EE and be incredibly smug about it to your friends."
It's an interesting idea, and you can even pick up a few of the accessories as well. "Just like the PlayStation 5, these accessories are part of our Add To Plan deals, which helps you spread the cost when buying new tech. An interest-free plan, you pay across your contract over an 11-month period. "
How to check if they EE has any PS5s
So, that all sounds good and all, but how can you check if anything is in stock?
Well, there's a special section of the site you can use to add bits to your plan and it also happens to tell you if they're in stock.
Unsurprisingly, they're not in stock at the moment, but it's worth registering your interest so that you'll get an email when they are.
