    PETITION LAUNCHED TO STOP RESELLING PS5S FOR 'INFLATED PRICES'

    Gamers have set up a petition to Parliament to prevent and deter the buying and selling of goods at inflated prices because of extortionate prices PS5 consoles are being resold at.

    The petition reads: “This practice is most prevalent in the buying and re-selling of event tickets but also has a significant impact on the sales of trainers/clothes and technology.

    “The most recent case in point is the launch of the PlayStation 5 and X Box Series X consoles.

    “Both pre-orders and launch day stock were sold out instantaneously and then thousands of listings appeared on eBay at over double the RRP.

    “A reseller group claimed to have been able to secure 3500 of these.”

    REVIEW: THE DESIGN

    When it comes to design, the PS5 is seriously out there.

    For a start, it’s absolutely enormous – I’d wager two times the total surface area of the Xbox Series X.

    It stands well over a foot tall (about 40cm), and is over 4 inches thick even on its side.

    I managed to move a shelf on my Ikea TV cabinet to fit it in longways – but I had nowhere to put it vertically, except on the floor.

    I’d argue that it’s prohibitively big, especially given how much smaller its main rival is.

    But it does look pretty cool: the console has a black core with a curved white cut-off shell.

    WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CONSOLES?

    The only difference between the PS5 console and the PS5 Digital Edition console is the inclusion of an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive in the PS5 console.

    The PS5 Digital Edition console does not feature a disc drive.

    The PS5 console features an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive that will allow you to play PS5 Blu-ray disc games and PS4 Blu-ray disc games, as well as play video from 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Discs, standard Blu-ray discs, and DVDs.
