The Sony PS5 finally gets its UK release on Thursday, November 19, so if you missed the pre-order stock you'll need to know which reliable retailers to try out. Us good souls at FourFourTwo have tried to help you out – below we've listed all the places we think you should check first.

The even better news is that you'll be able to play FIFA 21 the moment you get your PS5.

We've rounded up the websites that will give you the best chance of landing the next-gen PlayStation console below, and any deals that are being offered.

And if you buy the PS4 version of the latest FIFA, you'll be able to upgrade it to the PS5 version for free with EA's offer of Dual Entitlement. This only runs out once FIFA 22 is released, so you'll be able to do this at any point you land a PS5 over the next year.

FIFA 21 will get its PS5 release on December 4, but until then the PS5's backwards compatibility means you'll be able to enjoy the PS4 version of FIFA on your new console.

The PlayStation 5 is available in two versions: the main console with all the trimmings will set you back £449, while the digital-only version is a comparatively peanuts £359.

The cheaper digital console will only play digitally downloaded games – so make sure you don't purchase a physical copy of FIFA 21 on disc if you plan on buying the lighter hardware.
