Shoppers have queued outside Westfield in Stratford in a bid to get their hands on the new PlayStation 5.
A picture was shared of a long line of shoppers outside Game today (Thursday, November 19) as the new console was launched.
The PS5 has been hailed as a “new era for gaming” by maker Sony, with the new system promising 4K resolution gameplay, higher-quality graphics and faster loading times.
As a result, thousands went online this morning in the hope of securing a console on its first day of sale, but many reported being met with messages of limited stock, delayed release or long online queues to place an order.
