If you’re a BT broadband or EE customer you have an extra chance of getting a PS5 console when it comes out tomorrow.
The PlayStation 5 launch is going to be a nightmare for anyone that hasn’t already pre-ordered one. A limited amount of new stock is expected to be available at major stores like Amazon and GAME, but it’s likely to become sold out within hours – if not minutes.
However, BT are offering an alternative to sitting there pressing the refresh button all day, with a chance for their customers to order a PlayStation 5 from tomorrow, November 19.
As long as you’ve got a MyBT account you’ll apparently be able to order a console via that, although there’s no indication of how much stock BT has access to or when they’ll be delivered.
As well as ordering a console outright EE mobile customers will also be able to buy one in 11 interest-free monthly instalments, using the EE Add to Plan.
That sounds similar to the existing Xbox All Access scheme operated by Smyths and GAME and if it is interest-free a pretty good deal for existing customers.
BT also ran a similar promotion for the Xbox Series X when it launched last week and have even collaborated with Stadia, all with the ulterior motive of promoting their own BT Full Fibre service.
Microsoft has already said that Xbox Series X and S consoles won’t be freely available till April and while Sony hasn’t been quite as specific the PlayStation 5 will likely be suffering similar shortages – although it will gradually become easier to get hold of as the months go by.
