PS5 Stock: Amazon EU will have units on release day

The next-gen consoles have dominated gaming over the last few months, and while those in the US, Japan, and other regions have both at their fingertips, European gamers are still waiting for the PS5.

Those that were able to secure a pre-order are expecting delivery on 19 November, but those that couldn't will be scrambling to find a location with some stock on Thursday.

They may be in luck.

Stock issues not limited to Sony

Demand for next-gen consoles has far out-paced their supply.

This is not limited to Sony's machines, with Xbox officials saying their stock shortfalls may not be rectified until mid-2021.

With units in short supply, there are plenty of shady scalpers looking to make a fast buck by reselling consoles at a huge mark-up. Hopefully Amazon & other retailers will have bars in place to prevent that.
