Are you considering a Nintendo Switch instead of a PS5?
If all the stock issues associated with Sony’s latest console make you feel a little bit, well, maybe consider a Nintendo Switch (£ 279.99, Argos.fr) as a viable alternative.
With fierce competition between the best gaming console, in our review our editor noted that “Nintendo has never been afraid to take risks with its console designs, and the Switch console, which first released in 2017. , is a perfect straight example. “
As a “living room console that can be detached from a TV docking station and used as a portable device,” it is “well suited for sofa multiplayer, a mode facilitated by the new controller design, which allows each joystick to separate into two parts, each working independently.

Best PS5 games available on the Playstation Store
There are a number of games available exclusively for those who own one of the coveted PlayStation consoles, as they can only be found on Sony’s new machine. One of them is Astro’s playroom (free, Playstation.com), which was actually the best test in our PS5 game review.
“A love letter to a 27-year-old legacy, Astro’s playroom serves as both an introduction to the functionality of the new DualSense touch controller on the PS5, as well as an old-fashioned, complete and inventive platform game in its own right, ”noted our editor.
The best thing is that it comes pre-installed on your device and it’s free. To win.

Currys PC World PS5 restocking update
Currys is either going to sell some really expensive PS5 consoles, or he’s about to have another PS5 drop if a PS5 stock tracking Twitter account is correct. Currys listed the PS5 consoles for £ 2,859 and £ 2,959 each. According to the account, the last time Currys did this was right before sending out more VIP codes.

Box.co.uk PS5 restocking sold out
Well that was quick! Box.co.uk has already sold the PS5 pack – in less than five minutes. We’re pretty sure it was a small drop, considering he’s only released one pack, but it’s still disappointing when it sells out so fast. We are encountering error pages when trying to access the product page, so you are not alone if you have trouble accessing the website.
Either way, we’ll be keeping an eye on Game, AO, and Smyths.
