As the Currys website problems hit users took to social networking site Twitter to report issues with it.

While others have been left hoping the Currys maintenance could be due to an inbound PS5 stock drop, with Currys getting ready for the huge demand it will no doubt bring.
One Twitter user posted: “Currys website down rn my hope is for PlayStation 5 digital to be there as last time they didn’t sell them to me could also just be regular maintenance. There is no PS5’s in the UK. PlayStation please give Europe and the rest of the world more stock next time US restocks daily”.
While another wrote: “CURRYS SITE DOWN, PS5 STOCK?!?!?!”
So far the official Currys PC World website has yet to comment on whether this latest round of maintenance could be for an inbound PS5 stock drop.
The most recent tweet they posted was highlighting a Black Friday deal, saying: “The final deal we’re loving.
“Bag yourself an Ultimate Ears speaker from £49.99. With most of their speakers being waterproof and wireless, one of these will be sure to impress for Christmas.”
While speaking recently about the next PS5 stock drop, the Team Know How Twitter posted: “We don’t have a replenishment date for the PS5 just yet, but stay tuned.”
Once the Currys website goes back online bargain hunters will be able to access the tonnes of money saving deals the retailer is running for Black Friday 2020.
