With PS5 sold out everywhere, even Saturday Night Live is having a pop

We have no choice but to Stan.

Everyone knows it's tough to get a PlayStation 5 for Christmas, with stock limited, allegedly stolen, scalped, re-sold at ridiculous prices, and literally swiped from moving trucks like a scene from Fast and the Furious.

Well, even Saturday Night Live has noticed, and this weekend the long-running US sketch show broadcast its own take on this holiday's must-have item.

Arrested Development and Ozark star Jason Bateman plays Santa in a spoof of the Eminem song Stan. This time around, however, it's an insistent man asking for a PS5, after being unable to find one at Walmart or GameStop.

PlayStation has not commented on the skit - it's not hugely flattering, although word your console is completely sold out everywhere is surely good publicity. Ubisoft has, however - as the song does include a brief mention of Assassin's Creed Valhalla.

Here's Ubisoft's own additional rap:

Has the PS5 changed the way we play single-player games forever?
