US RAPPER Travis Scott has revealed that he's already got his hands on a PlayStation 5 – weeks ahead of the console's official release.
The Sicko Mode writer, 29, posted a photo on Instagram over the weekend of him sitting in front of a huge TV holding a PS5 DualSense controller.
"I will be playing until the sun up," the Texan, who recently sparked rumours he was back together with Kylie Jenner, wrote under the post shared with his 33million followers on Saturday.
Sony recently confirmed it would release the £449 PlayStation 5 in November, with pre-orders opening earlier this month.
The PS5 is said to support 4K graphics and boast an ultra-fast CPU that effectively eliminates loading times.
It's not clear whether Travis has a PS5 console proper in his clutches, or just a controller.
It's certainly plausible: Microsoft recently began sending out early versions of its upcoming Xbox Series X to influencers and celebs.
Console-makers often hand out their machines to people with big followings ahead of release to generate a bit of extra buzz.
In comments under the post, green-eyed Instagram users queried how Travis managed to bag a PS5 early.
"How tf u got da ps5 ???", one user wrote.
Another said: "Travis throw the Xbox away it’s Ps5 game here".
One cheeky commenter joked: "Damn kylie secured that ps5 for you?"
The PS5 is Sony's latest and greatest gaming console.
It's the successor to the PS4 and PS4 Pro, and will be available in two distinct versions.
PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X – when are they out and how much will they cost?
Microsoft has confirmed that the new Xbox Series X and its smaller, cheaper sibling, the Series S, will launch on November 10.
The release date covers the UK, US, Australia and a bunch of other countries worldwide.
The disc-free Series S will cost £249/$299, while the Xbox Series X comes in at £449/$499.
So how does that compare to the new Xbox's biggest rival, the PlayStation 5?
Sony has revealed the PS5 release date falls on November 12, but not everywhere.
That date only stands for the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea.
In the UK, you won’t be able to get it until November 19.
The PS5 proper will cost £449.99/$499.99, while the digital edition comes in at £359/$399.
Those are the pricey PS5 proper with all the bells and whistles, and the digital edition, which is cheaper but with lower specs and no disc tray.
Both consoles will be out in time for Christmas 2020 with an impressive roster of launch games.
And they'll be going head-to-head with Microsoft's next-gen consoles, the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
Like Sony, Microsoft has opted to launch two machines: A full-works console with a higher price tag and a cheaper one without a disc tray.
In other news, Sony recently confirmed that more PS5 pre-orders are on the way.
The next-gen machine sold out within minutes when pre-orders launched on September 17.
And, a PlayStation fan has created an "all black" PS5 that disappointed gamers think looks much better than the real thing.
