Looks like that Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart PS5 bundle is now official. After appearing with French retailer Boulanger last week, UK retailer Smyths has now posted the bundle themselves. That includes the PS5 console, a DualSense controller and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart physical copy for £509.99.
However, stock has yet to go live on the site. It's not currently available for either home delivery or in-store collection, but Smyths have stated that the bundle is “expected in stock June 11-18”. As such, we could see it appearing as soon as today.

It's been hard enough trying to find a PlayStation 5 since it launched last November, so it may explain why we've not seen any dedicated hardware bundles until now. As spotted by French website Station of Play, they've noticed a bundle has appeared for Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart.
Coming from French retailer Boulanger, this bundle supposedly launches on Friday alongside the standalone game, priced at €569.99. It originally appeared on June 2, with Station of Play claiming there would be around 10,000-12,000 units available and further units following by the end of the month.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart May Be Getting A PS5 Hardware Bundle
This isn't the first time we've seen Boulanger in the news recently, either. Last week, they put up an early listing for Nintendo's long rumoured "Switch Pro" console, advising it'd retail for around €399. However, that's since been removed from their website.
While this would likely see a wider release in other regions, if you're looking to find yourself a PS5 in the meantime, you can check out our stock tracker. Otherwise, we'll keep you posted with new Ratchet & Clank developments when it launches this Friday on June 11.
