Hordes of gamers have stormed electronics stores across the country to be the first to get their hands on the new PlayStation 5 – but only a few have succeeded.
The Sony console launched on Thursday after its release date was delayed by international border closings due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Some lucky shoppers who pre-ordered the 4K, 825GB custom SSD game system from JB Hi-Fi back in September picked up the next-generation console at the retailer’s Strand Arcade store in Sydney’s Pitt Street.

For everyone else, online sales are available through stores such as Harvey Norman, Big W, The Gamesmen and EB Games.
JB Hi-Fi also announced that they would be selling the PS5 online, but many reported problems when the orders opened at 11am.
“I was literally five minutes early and it never worked. I keep getting an error, ”wrote a frustrated customer on the company’s Facebook page.
Others said, “It’s a shame their website isn’t working” and “Go to delivery options and” Oops, an error has occurred “.
Disgruntled shoppers said they could add the console to their online shopping cart but would then be unable to pay at checkout.
“If it’s sold out just say it’s sold out, get no hope,” one commenter wrote.
The flagship PS5 console is available for $ 749, while the digital edition goes for $ 599 without a disc.
Retailers claim that if you order today, the console will arrive before Christmas.
