The wait is over for serious gaming fans who have been anticipating the arrival of the PlayStation 5.
Today Sony's latest console finally gets its officially UK release, having previously been released in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea on 12 November.
The state of the art machine costs a cool £349.99 for the Digital Edition and £449.99 for the version with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive.
Back in September fans scrambled to pre-order the next generation console, with stock levels evaporating in record time and today many fans will finally receive their fulfilled orders.
Speaking about the release, Jim Ryan, President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment said: “PS5 is a truly next-generation console representing the beginning of a new era for gaming. I’m thrilled for the new worlds that players will begin to experience today, and I’m equally excited for the lineup of games still to come for PS5 that will continue to propel the gameplay experience forward."
For those who have yet to make a purchase, there is very limited stock available online for the new console at major retailers like Amazon and John Lewis. So shoppers will need to be very quick in order to snap one up.
Below we have a full list of where you can buy online while stocks last.

Shoppers can also save an extra £15 off their online PS5 orders by using TopCashback's latest deal.
The cashback site is giving all new members a £15 bonus towards the cost of any online orders from retailers in its gaming category.
Meaning shoppers can use it when buying the console from a number of top UK stockists.
All new members have to do is sign up to Topcashback.co.uk for free, find their chosen retailer and click through to shop as normal on the retailer's site.
TopCashback will then track your order and pay out the £15 bonus plus any additional cashback to cover some of the cost.
There are two versions of the console – the PS5 Digital Edition, which retails at £349.99, and the PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive, which is available for £449.99

Fans can expect next-generation gameplay thanks to a far more powerful console. The PS5 also features impressive 8k graphics support.
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.
