Sony’s £450 PlayStation 5 sold out fast when pre-orders opened last week. But pre-orders for the £360 PlayStation 5 Digital Edition? Those seemed to go even faster.
There was huge demand for the cheaper Digital Edition, but also reports there was far less Digital Edition stock to go around. Now, retail sources Eurogamer has spoken to have said this was accurate.
A source at one major UK retailer said their company’s stock allocation had been around 25 per cent Digital Edition versus 75 per cent regular PS5, though this might vary slightly from store to store.
