The PS5 is still the hottest item on the market, with thousands of players scrambling during ever restock to secure the next-gen system.
Here is all of the news you need to know today!
Rocket League Season 3 Coming Soon
The upcoming Season 3 of Rocket League will begin on April 7th and will last until July 21st.
In September 2020 the game went completely free-to-play, allowing all players to try the fast-paced arena game.
Psyonix teased the new season saying,
“START YOUR ENGINES! ROCKET LEAGUE SEASON 3 IS FUELED UP AND READY TO ROLL ON APRIL 7! GET READY FOR THE MOST HIGH-OCTANE SEASON YET, WITH A NEW ROCKET PASS, CHALLENGES, AND CONTENT FROM NASCAR AND FORMULA 1!”
In a blog post, Psyonix revealed what to expect from the upcoming collaborations.
“To properly celebrate the art of auto racing, we had to bring in two legends that practically perfected speed: NASCAR and Formula 1. Both of these titans of the track are racing into Rocket League throughout Season 3 with their own bundles. Check out the first look at the cars in all of their gearhead glory in the Season 3 trailer above, and look out for more info leading up to the release of NASCAR in early May and F1 in mid-May.
Rocket League needed a new car to compete with the redlines of NASCAR and Formula 1, so our engineers have been hard at work in the garage fine tuning and test driving a speed demon of our own. Introducing Tyranno. Get ready to take control of this master of dash with a Dominus hitbox in the Season 3 Rocket Pass. Stay tuned for the full Rocket Pass reveal next week!
Prepare to take in the sights and sounds of race day in the newly redesigned DFH Stadium (Circuit). The classic Arena has been outfitted with a track and all the pageantry found trackside during a championship Sunday. DFH Stadium (Circuit) will be added to the Casual and Competitive Playlists, and will be available for Private Matches and Freeplay at the start of Season 3.”
As with every new Rocket League season, it will feature a new season pass, called a Rocket Pass, featuring over 70 rewards for players to unlock over the course of the season.
“THE LATEST ROCKET PASS IS OBSESSED WITH SPEED! GET ROCKET PASS PREMIUM AND UNLOCK THE ALL-NEW TYRANNO, AND 70+ TIERS OF NEW ITEMS!”

PS5 Stock Update
It is being reported that Amazon’s 8,000 consoles, that they recently received, could be going live on their website as early as tomorrow.
This is believed to be the biggest shipment of consoles any UK retailer has received so far, with retailers previously receiving up to 5,000 consoles per restock.
It could indicate that Sony is finally getting on top of manufacturing and are beginning to keep up with demand.
