PlayStation 5 has reportedly been delivered early to at least two customers based in the Republic of Ireland.
PS5 launched on November 12 in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea, but isn’t due for release in Europe until this Thursday, November 19.
The Irish users who claim to have received their consoles ahead of schedule both say they ordered PS5 from retailer Smyths. They posted the following images of their new systems:
Another Reddit user in the comments section said they ordered their console from Currys and that DPD had let them pay £10 to upgrade their delivery to arrive by 10am on Wednesday.
PS5 pre-orders went live in September and initial stock was quickly snapped up.
Amazon will be taking new PS5 orders in Europe on November 19, as will Game in the UK.
PS5 is priced at $500/€500/£450 for the standard edition and $400/€400/£360 for the Digital Edition, with the only difference between them being the former’s inclusion of a disc drive.
