John Lewis customers were told to ‘try again soon’ when trying to buy a PS5

At the time of writing, some 18,000 people were being placed in a queue as they wait to buy the sought-after console.

But earlier this morning, as many as 200,000 people were waiting in the virtual queue, according to furious tweets.

On the John Lewis website, a notice reads: “Sorry about the wait, please try again soon.

“It’s the much-anticipated launch of the new Sony Playstation 5 console so we’re busier than usual.”

The retailer confirmed it had sold out of the console shortly after 10am.

When you try and click on the pre-sale link on the Tesco website, a message comes up that says: “503. Service unavailable.”

The GAME website wasn’t loading at all when The Sun tried to access it.

The Playstation 5 went on sale at 8am this morning.

Gamers have since been complaining on Twitter after being unable to get their hands on the console.

One person said: “200,000 in the queue ahead of me WTH. I guess Currys PC World has more PS5s.”

Another person said: “Tesco what’s going on with the pre order site won’t let me add amount and keeps crashing?”

A third said: “I was sat there clicking next for a wholeeeeee 20 mins… ya’ll gotta give me the PS5 now man!”

Posting a picture of the queue on Currys PC World, another said: “I’m guessing this is the queue for the new PlayStation? John Lewis website is broken also. Great.”

A fourth person tweeted: “Logged on to the website, waiting for PS% to be available for order and to be kicked out AGAIN because your website is awful.

“This has happened for the first pre-order too. Completely regretting putting money on the Game card as now I am stuck buying from you.”
