    CHRISTMAS SHOPPERS IN DUBLIN FURIOUS AFTER TECH STORE PUTS UP SECOND HAND PS5 FOR £860

    Horrified Christmas shoppers are balking at the sight of a PS5 in the window of a Dublin tech store for a staggering £862.

    Retailer CeX have a white, boxed 825GB PS5 on display in the window of their outlet at Northside Shopping Centre in Coolock, advertising it for almost twice its usual cost.

    The latest gaming console from Sony was initially released for £450.

    A parent who spoke to Dublin Live said that he and his wife had been frantically hunting high and low” for one of the consoles, but said they were as harder to get than gold dust.

    He added: “I wouldn't pay that much for one though – kids will never learn the value of anything if their parents are willing to shell out that much for something. It's just wrong.”

      DEMAND FOR PS5 IS 'UNPRECEDENTED'

      PLAYSTATIONS BLOCKED OFF IN WELSH SUPERMARKETS

      PlayStations, Xboxes and kids' toys have been blocked off by boxes of beer at Welsh supermarkets as “non-essential” items are banned again.

      Shoppers in Wales were left outraged after supermarkets cordoned off items the government had deemed “non-essential” during lockdown.

      BURGERED!

      Crooks are switching PlayStation 5s for home grills in two shock delivery scams.

      The items’ similar weight mean they fool scanners checking boxes at warehouses.

      One con sees criminals, feared to be parcel couriers, substitute a £42 George Foreman Large Fit Grill for the £449 console which is kept and sold at vast profit.

      Hundreds of gamers have reported opening parcels to find a grill.

      It is just 2lbs lighter than the PS5.

      Crooks have also used a £75 Pro Breeze air fryer in the swap.

      An Amazon insider said: “Loads of boxes have been returned to us from customers saying their PS5 never arrived.

      “Many have excitedly opened the box to find a deep-fat fryer or grill.

      “Amazon has replaced a lot but there are still probably tens of thousands of unopened parcels out there.

      “A lot of people could be about to get a nasty shock on Christmas Day.”

      DAD LOSES £530 IN PS5 SCAM

      A dad has lost more than £500 after being duped by heartless scammers.

      Bradley Tooth, a dad-of-three from Bury, was trying to snap up a PS5 for his son for Christmas.

      But after transferring the money via bank transfer to a private seller on Twitter, Bradley knew something was up, reports the Manchester Evening News.

      He said his bank confirmed he had been scammed, and is urging people to be careful.

        Hotstock offers real-time product tracking across multiple major stores, and will alert you when something is available to buy.

        As well as console like the sold-out PS5 and Xbox Series X, the site can also track online stock of virtual reality headsets like the Oculus Rift.

        It's available to people in the UK, US and Canada.

        “We'll alert you when hard-to-get products are back in stock and available to buy,” Hostock says on its website.

        “You'll never have to miss out on that must-have product again.”

        PS5 USERS PLAYING “WORSE” PS4 GAMES BY ACCIDENT

        A bizarre bug means Sony's next-gen console doesn't make it clear whether you're playing the PS4 or PS5 variants of some of your favourite titles.

        The high-powered machine, which has already hit shelves in the US and is out in the UK on Thursday, can play games from both consoles.

        However, for games available on both PS4 and PS5, it can be tricky to figure out whether you're playing the old or next gen version.

        That's because only one icon for each game appears on the console's dashboard, meaning there's no way to tell the difference between them.

        SONY RELEASES NEW PS5 HARDWARE TRAILER

        Sony has released a new trailer for the Playstation 5 which shows off all the latest hardware available for the console.

        GameRant reports that the clip, posted on Playstation's YouTube page, features the sleek DualSense controller and the PlayStation 5 console itself – but also comes with some new perks.

        Gamers can get a look at the Pulse 3D wireless headset, the DualSense charging station, the Media remote and the HD camera in the new trailer.

        THE SUN’S FAVOURITE CONSOLE ALTERNATIVE

        When VR had its big breakthrough a few years ago, it was prohibitively expensive.

        Then came a load of cheaper headset, but these significantly degraded the experience.

        Now the Oculus Quest 2 has found the perfect middle-ground: it’s reasonably priced, and offers a mind-blowing VR experience.

        It’s seriously good value for money at £299, and I reckon it’s a better buy than a console right now.

        We’ve all played the same old console games, but VR opens up a whole new world of fun.

        And the fact you can stream it to the telly or a phone while you play makes it more social too.

        HOW TO PLAY THE RIGHT VERSION OF BLACK OPS ON PS5

        To ensure you're playing the right version, hit the three dots icon next to the play button. Change your selection to the PS5 version.

        The user interface will quickly refresh, and voilà, your console should start the next-gen version every time you press play.

        You're also able to delete the PS4 version from your hard drive to avoid any further mix ups.

        An early bug also means the PS5 version won't download to your nest-gen console if you have the PS4 version installed.

        GAMERS IN SCOTLAND DUPED INTO PAYING £500 FOR A PHOTO OF A PS5

        SCOTS on Ebay have been targeted by fraudsters in a PS5 photo scam.

        Buyers have been duped into bidding hundreds of pounds for a picture thinking they are contending for a console.

        The scammers have carefully listed the item as a ‘photo’ of the sought after gaming station.

        The PS5's RRP is £449 – but with such high-demand, some bold private sellers are asking for up to £1,000.

        Buyers in Aberdeen were warned of the photo scam online earlier this week.

        THE PS5 WILL NOW WARN YOU IF YOU ARE PLAYING THE LAST-GEN VERSION OF A GAME

        THE PS5 now has a feature that fires off a warning if you’re about to load up the PS4 version of the console.

        The console now asks players to “confirm game version” before loading up a game that has both last and next-gen versions available.

        The prompt reads: “You’re about to play the PS4 version of this game.

        “Do you want to switch to the PS5 version?”

        But users are pre-warned they won't get the prompt for every game.
