And it's felt like a lifetime ever since.

And for one man in particular, the agony has been rolled out even more after his girlfriend used the new PS5 to her advantage, finding the perfect way to prank her boyfriend...

Luke Coburn said he couldn't believe it when his girlfriend, Rebecca Redbourn, sent him a text showing a PS5 in their hallway.

Rebecca sent this iMessage to Luke:

"Omg look what just got delivered. The box is huge!!! How am I supposed to hide that until Christmas?!"

Before sending another message saying: "Omg!!! Ignore that. I was supposed to send that to Kathie [her sister]."

Luke couldn't believe his luck, replying with: "You best be f***ing joking."

Rebecca continued to get Luke's hopes up with more pictures of the console...

Even going as far as apologizing for ruining the surprise.

Luke said: "F*** sake I've gone all weird haha I love you so much aye I don't deserve that though!"

"An[d] how the f*** do I stay away from it for a month and not just that how the f*** do I match that for you hahaha."

But Rebecca couldn't keep it going...

Coming clean about it all, and sharing the whole prank online, which has understandably gone viral.

Rebecca said: "We will still have an amazing Christmas"...

"Although, I don't think Luke will be happy unwrapping a pair of socks rather than the PS5 he was expecting." Keep scrolling to see his hilarious reaction for yourself...

When asked why she did it, she responded...

"He's such a wind-up, we've been together almost 4 years now and he's constantly playing pranks around the house. "Mainly jumping out on me and recording my reaction and using fake spiders to scare me. Now we've got 2 young boys, he gets them involved too. I am outnumbered."

She admitted she expects Luke to get her back just as big...

"Luke has already admitted that nothing he will do [to prank me] can top this but I know that won't stop him. He will do everything to come up with something bigger and better." Luke added: "I'm still a bit gutted about it. I'm starting to see the funny side, but obviously, she had me a good one.

He continued...

"I was a bit sceptical at first but then when she sent me a photo of it behind the bedroom door upstairs, that's when I believed her even more. "I was telling everyone at work and showing them the picture of the PlayStation 5 she got me. "Obviously I said how much I love it and don't deserve it, and I couldn't believe it. She messaged me then saying she couldn't keep it going anymore and it was an Instagram filter."

He was gutted...

"I was gutted when she made that reveal. I still didn't know if she was trying to cover her tracks or not and she had gotten me it, but then I looked on Instagram and saw it was a filter. "It all confirmed for me then and sunk in. I had to go and tell the boys that she had me a good one. They were all in tears laughing, especially the men."

Check out the whole prank below...

"I'm definitely going to plan a good revenge, it's just what. How do I top it? She's gone viral with it." I don't think he could ever! Keep scrolling for more on PlayStation...
