PS5 stock: Thousands queue to get onto Curry's website after it restocks PlayStation 5 consoles
THOUSANDS of gaming fans queued to get onto Curry PC World's website this morning after it restocked Playstation 5 consoles.
The overwhelming demand saw as many as 150,000 shoppers waiting to get access to the website after 8am.

It came after the console also crashed websites including Tesco, John Lewis and GAME in November.
Currys hasn't yet confirmed when the consoles went on sale today, but they've previously been released at 8am.
By 9.22am this morning, all of its stock had sold out.
One customer said on Twitter this morning: "I was in the Currys queue about to get the ps5 then it says error and now I'm in a queue with 79,000 people.
"I've been up till 6:50am I give up with GAME, Smyths and Currys. My last hopes are Argos and Amazon."
And another added: "Currys have ps5 in stock but there’s about 50 thousand people in the queue good luck to you all @PlayStationUK @curryspcworld."
While a third vented on Twitter: "I'm so over this whole ps5 fiasco. There needs to be a better way of distributing available units.
" I was on Curry's at 6.30am, no sign of ps5. 1hr later I'm 65k deep in a queue. It's ridiculous."
And a fourth said: "I guess finally I managed to order a #PS5 for tomorrow from @curryspcworld drop.
"I can't imagine how fast those bot works. After less than a sec I was 78000 person in Q."
A message on the Currys website initially said it "now has limited PS5 stock", but it was later updated to say the consoles have sold out.
It added: "Please keep an eye on our website for new console updates."
The Sun has contacted the retailer for comment.
It comes after Amazon shoppers were left furious in November after the e-commerce giant "removed" the new PlayStation 5 from their baskets.
Sony launched two versions of the PlayStation 5 in the UK and Europe on November 19, following the consoles' release in the US a week earlier.
The full PS5 costs £449, while a Digital Edition without a disc tray is priced at £359.
PS5 owners have complained of "frustrating" bugs that stop games downloading and block 4K resolution – we explain how to fix them.
