A “phenomenal operation” is underway to stock UK shelves with PS5 consoles this Christmas.

The PlayStation5 is the most sought-after gadget on the planet right now with gamers desperately trying to get their hands on a new console.

Following its November 2020 release, Brits have found it nearly impossible to find Sony’s latest gaming console, but there is good news for gaming hopefuls today.

The Sun is reporting a huge operation from Sony to get stock to the UK in time for Christmas.


It is understood that three jumbo cargo planes, loaded full of PS5s has landed at Heathrow airport as they look to fulfil demand for Christmas.

A Sony source told the Sun: “A phenomenal operation has been under way to stock UK shelves of PS5s for Christmas.

“Sony just wants to keep fans happy after a slew of issues with its new kit, and this is an unprecedented air-lift.

“The 747 plane is rare after being decommissioned by British Airways, but carries a vast amount of cargo as a freighter aircraft.

“Each plane can bring in 100 tonnes of equipment on almost 50 pallets. It means millions of gamers will now be smiling this Christmas.”
