After months of anticipation, the PlayStation 5 finally went on sale last week.

The console went on sale in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea on November 12, ahead of its release in the UK tomorrow.

While many eager fans have been able to get their hands on a PS5, unfortunately many stores sold out in record time.

Now, one gamer has revealed that he purchased not just one, but two PS5 consoles, in order to surprise his gaming buddy of 15 years.

Reddit user ghost_knight1121 shared a photo of him and his pal on Reddit this week, sharing his heartwarming story.

He said: “Been gaming with this dude for 15 years. Since Rainbow Six Vegas on 360.
