Currys resort to a lottery-style system for PS5 Stock.

Currys resort to a lottery-style system for PS5 Stock.

We all know trying to get a PS5 is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. And what with scalpers seemingly able to scoop up every unit when they become available, Currys has introduced a new system, that might just beat them.

The ‘Priority Pass System’ will allow randomly selected customers to purchase a console, without fear of missing out and having to battle the thousands of gamers who also want one.

Once signed up (For free I might add), all you have to do is wait to be ‘randomly selected’, although this depends on how many units are available at the time.

If you are lucky enough to be picked, Currys will email you a ‘unique PS5 buying code’ which is valid for 72 hours, for you to complete your purchase of the console.

Once you’ve brought it, however, you will still have to wait to get it as Currys aren’t open due to the UK’s lockdown restrictions, so you’ll have to wait till April 12th (at the earliest) before you can pick it up.

Unfortunately, other countries are also in the same sort of predicament stock wise not to mention the ongoing parts shortage, so you may have to wait a while… but as the old saying goes, You’ve gotta be in it to win it….right?

You can sign up for the priority pass here.
