Quickly! The PS5 is here, but not for long

The PS5 was released over a year and a half ago now, but getting your hands on one is still just as complicated. Fortunately, the rebuilding seems to be happening more and more often, and it’s honestly a pleasure! If you are reading these lines, it means that we have just discovered stock and we immediately invite you to click on the orange link below so as not to miss it.

The PS5 is finally back in stock. But will it last?

If you are reading this article, you are probably one of those waiting to find Sony’s console in stores.

If so, don’t waste a minute because we just received a back-in-stock alert and it might not last more than a few minutes.

Update 18/08/2022 at 08:32: Invitations issued by Amazon are no longer open.

If a PS5 drop is taking place at Amazon, remember that in order to successfully achieve it on the US platform, you must be an Amazon Prime member.

If you are already an Amazon Prime member, simply click “Add to your list” to be able to get the precious sesame. Note, to know if the console is available, only the absence of the “Currently Unavailable” mention will tell you if you can buy the console or not.

If the console has slipped out of your hands again (and we know how extremely frustrating that can be), don’t be discouraged! On the contrary, do not hesitate to come back to read this news throughout the day, because we will update it as soon as a new drop has been reported to us.

And our source is very responsive, it will take us very little time to share the information with you. get ready as stocks usually sell out within minutes.

The shortage affects the world of technology just as much. Although we are starting to find graphics cards at prices very close to their MSRP (price announced by the manufacturer), they remain quite rare, and it is the same on the side of consoles and especially the PlayStation 5.

We therefore find stock more and more regularly, but it is still rare to find it at the launch price. Similarly, most of the time the console is sold in bundles with controllers and one or even more games.

The problem stems mainly from manufacturers’ difficulty in obtaining supplies of semiconductors, an essential element in making electronic components. They are found in consoles like the PS5 as well as in PC or even car components.

They are very complex to produce and they have been heavily affected by the factory closures in connection with Covid. On the other hand, demand has never stopped rising, quite the contrary. Result: prices rose exponentially.

And with the international crises, the increases in the price of raw materials and energy, we are still not ready to really return to normal for a while.

Although the indicators are now green with ever-increasing inventories, we still cannot expect a real exit from this crisis before a good time, at least 2024 according to some analysts.

Of course, it is always possible to get a PS5 during the year. The shortage is not total. Many private sellers, more or less reliable, offer both versions of the console. On the other hand, you will have to make a big sacrifice at least on the price.

A quick reminder: There are two base versions of the PS5 at the following prices:

  • The digital version, which is around €400
  • The version with disc player, which is worth around €500

You should also know that a large number of PS5 buyers preferred to buy as many PS5s as possible as soon as they were released in order to encourage this shortage and thus be able to afford to resell them at much higher prices. These are “scalpers” and while this process is not illegal, we do not consider the practice ethical for once and do not wish to promote it.

That’s why we prefer to redirect you to serious sellers, known to everyone, and when we discover stock from a third-party seller, we take the time to look at the ratings and reviews related to them. We warmly invite you to do the same in order not to be cheated.

Buying from a seller with good ratings will always be better than just taking your luck on a dodgy site where you might not have your console and have trouble getting your money back.
