It seems that Spider-Man 2 PS5 console covers are the latest hot-ticket items for Sony fans after pre-order stock was sold out within minutes of going live.
Today was the first day that Spider-Man fans could place their pre-orders for the new console plates and DualSense, themed around the upcoming Spider-Man 2 PS5 exclusive.
For the first time in the West, PS5 fans can upgrade their consoles (even without purchasing a new device), thanks to the Spider-Man 2 console covers.
And with the symbiote-themed DualSense controller being one of the best-looking gamepads yet, there’s little doubt as to why these items are selling out fast.
Spider-Man 2 PS5 Console Covers Sold Out
Only minutes after the new Spider-Man console covers and DualSense controller went live, PlayStation Direct, Walmart, Best Buy, Target and more are reporting that they are out of stock.
Surprisingly, PlayStation Direct went live shortly before its announced start time of 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET, leading to both the DualSense controller and console covers for Disc and Digital PS5s running out of stock faster than anticipated.
Now, both pages display a notice saying the product is ‘Currently Unavailable.’ Shortly after PS Direct went live, other retailers followed suit, but it didn’t take long for all sites to run out of stock too.
For those still on the hunt, here’s our guide to pre-ordering the Limited Edition Spider-Man 2 PS5 Console, Controller & Plates!
Despite customers being limited to purchasing just 1 of each item at several retailers, it seems that there wasn’t nearly enough stock to meet demand.
The same can be said for the UK’s launch, which occurred in the early hours of this morning. At 10 AM BST, we saw the console covers and controller sell out in just 12 minutes, though the PS5 bundle is still available.
Fans desperate to get their hands on the console cover and Spider-Man 2 PS5 DualSense can still find them in the limited edition console bundle.
This bundle contains a PS5 Disc Edition (with the new plates), a Spider-Man DualSense, and a voucher for a digital copy of Spider-Man 2. However, the combo does not come cheap, setting fans back $599.99.
We expect that PS Direct and third-party retailers will continue to restock, so keep your eyes on our pre-order guide above for all the latest developments!
