PlayStation Direct online store is now available in the UK

Sony opened the PlayStation Direct online store in the UK earlier this week following a similar launch in Germany. The opening of the UK store is part of the gradual roll-out of the service in Europe. Those who live in the UK can now buy hardware like the PS5 and PS4, as well as the DualSense controller, direct from Sony.

The website was under temporary maintenance right after it started. From time to time, after being redirected to another page, the site may display a “Currently under maintenance” message. However, reloading the website should solve the problem.

Unfortunately, UK consumers might be disappointed to learn that the PS5 is currently out of stock. Likewise, the German PS Direct store, which was launched at the beginning of this week, has neither the digital nor the disc console in stock. While there’s no official confirmation of when the consoles will be available for purchase, Sony has reportedly flown PS5 consoles on Boeing 747s to meet demand in time for the Christmas season. Hopefully this means there will be some in stock for the next month.

In addition to PS5s, the PlayStation Direct Store also offers PS4s and PS5 accessories such as the DualSense controller and the wireless Pulse 3D Midnight Black headset. In addition, the store also sells PS Plus subscriptions and PlayStation-exclusive games such as Death Stranding: Director’s Cut and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart.

Sony originally launched the PlayStation Direct service in 2019. Until that year, the service was only available in the United States. With the new European launch, however, PlayStation Direct will be extended to Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and France in addition to the UK and German stores that are already available. As Sony already mentioned, the introduction of PS Direct in the other European countries will follow “shortly”.
