The PlayStation 5 launched November 19 in the UK – one week after the US, where it went on sale November 12.

A handful of major retailers put the console up for sale on release day but stock sold out within minutes.

Some stores are expected to restock ahead of Christmas, though few have provided a date for when we can expect sales to open up again.

The PS5 is Sony’s latest and greatest gaming console.

It’s the successor to the PS4 and PS4 Pro, and is available in two distinct versions.

Those are the pricey PS5 proper with all the bells and whistles, and the digital edition, which is cheaper but with no disc tray.

Both consoles were releases with an impressive roster of launch games.

And they’re going head-to-head with Microsoft’s next-gen consoles, the  Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.

When is the PS5 out and how much does it cost?

The PlayStation 5 starts at just under £450 in the UK and $500 in the US

The PS5 release date in the US was on November 12, but not everywhere.

That date only stands for the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea.

In the UK, it was released on November 19.

The PS5 proper costs £449.99/$499.99, while the digital edition comes in at $399/£359.

The Xbox Series X has a tall, boxy design that's markedly different from previous models

So how does that compare to the PS5’s biggest rival, the Xbox?

Microsoft’s pair of next-gen consoles came out a little earlier, landing on November 10.

The cheaper disc-free Xbox Series S costs £249/$299, while the Xbox Series X comes in at £449/$499.

All prices were correct at the time of writing, but may have since changed. Always do your own research before making any purchase.

In other news, a PlayStation fan has created an “all black” PS5 that disappointed gamers think looks much better than the real thing.
