Big demand: Gamers are desperately searching shops for the last remaining PS5 and XBox Series consoles

Parents and gamers across Northern Ireland are desperately searching for some of the last remaining PlayStation 5 (PS5) and Xbox Series consoles as the clock ticks down to Christmas.

Video game rivals Sony and Microsoft, who are the manufacturers behind PlayStation and Xbox, released their new consoles earlier this month and the expected high demand has proved too much for the UK-wide stock.

Pre-order sales were sold out in days when the consoles were first made available, while some chanced their arm at attending midnight launches to try and get a PS5 or Xbox Series X/S.
