UPDATE: After some seriously mixed messaging about when pre-orders would open, PS5 orders are FINALLY live at Argos! The available stock has been coming and going all morning, so if at first, you aren't able to grab one keep trying as there is still some stock available, but it won't last for long.

The mad scramble to get your PS5 pre-order is well and truly on - like a scene from Jingle All The Way, but with more facemasks and customers exactly 2 meters apart.
Despite telling fans they would get plenty of notice, Sony unexpectedly dropped pre-orders across the globe as early as last night.
For most in the UK, finding stock has been an issue because it's simply going so fast.
GAME, Amazon, Curry's, and Very have all had stock come and go faster than a Spider-Man loading screen (Well, when on PS5 at least!).
Argos, however, are holding fire.
The famed high-street retailer appears to be waiting until this Friday before letting customers pre-order Sony's next-gen console on their website, and presumably in stores.
Despite no official communication from Argos, users have noticed that the site is hosting banner images which detail that pre-orders begin "this Friday".
Ahead of the mad rush, we've put together a quick guide to help you (hopefully) get to the front of the queue to place your order.
When can you pre-order PS5 from Argos?
As noted, the company has made it quite apparent that pre-orders begin Friday 18th September.
That's two months ahead of launch.
Thanks to a new Tweet from Argos' official Twitter account, we now know that the console's pre-orders will go live at midnight, so you'll want to set an alarm.
Hi Fab. Thank you for getting in touch.— Argos (@Argos_Online) September 17, 2020
Preorders for the PS5 will be available from 18/09/2020. They are scheduled to go live at midnight tonight :)
Please be aware that stock is subject to availability.
Argos also have a page where you can "register your interest", which you could do, but we imagine that all stock will have vanished long before that email hits your inbox. So if it was, we'd be hitting that refresh key on the site tomorrow morning.
