PS5 stock demand in UK
Demand has been so great that many retailers have brought in new rules to avoid scalpers taking advantage of the system for profit.
“We have strong measures in place to help ensure that our ‘1 per customer’ statement is maintained to allow for as many individual customers to successfully purchase as possible.
“All pre-orders are subject to automatic checks.
“Order updates take place after a customer will have received a valid order confirmation email.
“At the present time these orders are still pre-orders and as such no payments have yet been taken from customers.
“Payments will commence once our order checks have been completed.”
