If you were disappointed to find no PlayStation 5 console under your Christmas tree yesterday, it might not be late to plug Sony’s new machine into your TV before the year is over.
The Spiel Times has apparently heard from several employees at Target who say new stock is expected between tomorrow and Tuesday.
