Fans can finally pre-order the new PlayStation 5 console starting tomorrow, news that, on the face of it, would be greatly welcomed.

However, you need to have £8,000 in your back pocket in order to get one.

Thankfully, that price is only for a 24-carat gold, platinum or 18-carat rose gold finished console, sold by luxury retailer Truly Exquisite.

You also get two DualShock 5 controllers included within the package, as well as a 3D Pulse headset. If you want to buy them separately, it’s just over £1,000 for the pair.

It’s probably not a good idea to throw them at the wall after conceding a goal on FIFA.

There are only 250 of each colour set to be made available, so anyone with that sort of money may need to act fast in order to purchase one.

Where the standard PS5 is concerned, many websites are now allowing fans to register for a chance to pre-order the console.

Sony set up their own pre-order page last month where players can register their interest, but it is believed that the decision on who can pre-order will be based on interest in previous PlayStation activities.

Because of limited quantities, you can only order a maximum of one console.

Speaking about the situation and the company’s future plans, PlayStation’s head of worldwide marketing Eric Lempel said: “I think it’s safe to say that we’ll let you know when pre-orders will happen.

“It’s not going to happen at a minute’s notice.”

The PS5 is set to be the first major console released by Sony in seven years, following on from its PS4 predecessor.

Sony’s intention is for the PS5 to be its next-generation console, while it will also feature backwards compatibility with PS4 and PlayStation Virtual Reality games. Its integrated Blu-Ray drive is set to support 100GB Blu-Ray discs.
