Gaming fans have been waiting with baited breath for the new Sony PlayStation 5 release.
And now after much anticipation the next generation console is finally available to pre-order across the UK.
The price of the new console is £449.99, which is around the same price point as its rival the Xbox Series X.
Major retailers including Amazon, ShopTo, Argos, Currys and Very have already set up pre-order pages and these are now live for shoppers to take advantage of.
The PS5 is hotly tipped to have a November release date, just in time for Christmas and around the same time as the other big gaming release – the Xbox Series X.
Where to pre-order PS5 in the UK?
Shoppers can also save an extra £15 off their PS5 pre-order purchases thank to TopCashback's latest deal.
The cashback site is giving all new members an extra £15 off their online orders when spending £15 or more – and it's available at a number of top retailers stocking the console.
All new members have to do is sign up to topcashback.co.uk for free, find their retailer of choice and click through via TopCashback. The site will then track your order and pay out £15 bonus plus any additional cashback to cover some of the cost.

In June Sony unveiled the futuristic design, which comes with a black middle section and white panels on either side. It also features blue lights and a combination of angular and rounded shapes adding to the contemporary look and feel.
