PS5 UK stock LIVE – ShopTo drop rumours TODAY, plus Currys, GAME, Very, Argos and Smyths console restock latest
SMYTHS have been predicted to do a ‘mini drop’ this MORNING and Playstation fans predict more stock could be dropping across other retailers.
Those looking to get their hands on a new console should be aware that there could be yet another new scam waiting to catch people out.
One PS5 tracker account wrote: “WARNING. We have reports of people receiving fake GAME emails asking for bank details. DO NOT RESPOND OR GIVE ANY DETAILS TO THEM! It’s a scam!
“The email is Customer.email@example.com The correct email for GAME is firstname.lastname@example.org.”
The alleged scam has nothing to do with GAME itself and appears to be criminals posing as legitimate employees to steal customers’ cash.
Playstation CEO Jim Ryan reassured fans that Sony are “working as hard as they possibly can” to get more stock and blamed a global shortage in semiconductors for a slow rollout that has caused prolonged misery around the world.
“I know there were people who wanted a PS5 and couldn’t find one. We’re very sorry about that and obviously grateful that demand has been as strong as it is,” he said.
