Ahead of the PlayStation 5 launch, a hilarious new Instagram filter has gone live that lets you trick your friends into thinking you already have the PS5
After months of anticipation, the PlayStation 5 console will finally go on sale in the UK on November 19.
Ahead of the launch, a hilarious new Instagram filter has gone live that lets you trick your friends into thinking you already have the PS5.
They explained: “I hope everyone is having a good time with my AR filter for PS5 box.
“I have created this filter for fun purpose only, any misuse (sale, fake give away etc) of this may attract legal consequences for which ‘AR On Everything’ will not be responsible.
“I humbly request everyone to use this ethically and responsibly. Thank you and enjoy flaunting your virtual PS5.”
To try the filter yourself, open Instagram and go to take a Story, by tapping the camera icon in the top left corner.
Swipe through the filter carousel at the bottom of the screen, until you reach the Search option at the end.
Tap on this and it will open the Effect Gallery. Tap the magnifying glass in the top right corner, and search PS5 Box.
Tap on the PS5 Box filter, then tap ‘Try It’. Now you’ll be able to virtually place the PS5 box in your house and trick your friends into thinking you have the new console!
The official release date is November 12, with fans in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand South Korea able to get their hands on the console on that date.
However, it’s not good news for British PlayStation fans, who will have to wait another week to buy the PS5.
