Thousands of gaming fans desperate to get their hands on Playstation 5 consoles have been queuing to get on Currys PC World's website this morning.
The retailer quickly sold out of its new stock after as many as 150,000 shoppers waited to get access to its website, the Sun reports.
Gamers have been venting on social media as technical issues meant they kept dropping down the queue.
It comes after overwhelming demand for the Sony product crashed websites including Tesco, John Lewis and GAME in November.
One customer said on Twitter this morning: "I guess finally I managed to order a #PS5 for tomorrow from @curryspcworld drop.
"I can't imagine how fast those bot works. After less than a sec I was 78000 person in Q."
Another added: "Literally I was in the Currys queue about to get the ps5 then it says error and now i'm in a queue with 79,000 people.
"I've been up till 6:50 am I give up with GAME, Smyths and Currys. My last hopes are Argos and Amazon."
A third added: "Currys have ps5 in stock but there’s about 50 thousand people in the queue good luck to you all @PlayStationUK @curryspcworld."

And a fourth vented on Twitter: "I'm so over this whole ps5 fiasco. There needs to be a better way of distributing available units.
" I was on Curry's at 6.30am, no sign of ps5. 1hr later I'm 65k deep in a queue. It's ridiculous."
A message on Curry PC World's website says: “Huge demand has meant we need to place you in a short queue."
Earlier this morning it warned that it "now has limited PS5 stock" before a 9.14am update saying: "We have now SOLD OUT of the PS5. Please keep an eye on our website for new console updates."
It comes after Amazon shoppers were left furious in November after the e-commerce giant "removed" the new PlayStation 5 from their baskets.
