Buy PS5: Are MediaMarkt and Saturn following after Easter? Console restock chances remain good
A decline in calendar week 16 is entirely possible if you look at the sales statistics for the last few months. The pre-order campaign at MediaMarkt and Saturn was often followed by an online drop, which was usually quite manageable. Nevertheless, the odds are not bad. The alternatives currently remain OTTO and Euronics. Both dealers are late.
Update of April 16, 2022, 9:50 a.m.: At MediaMarkt and Saturn, after the big local pre-order campaign, it’s currently pretty quiet when it comes to new PS5 supplies. But even after Easter, a watchful eye might be worthwhile. Because there is currently a rumor circulating that an online drop could possibly follow in the next few days, since it was also the case after the last MMS pre-order campaign.

Update of April 15, 2022, 8:46 a.m.: It’s the end of a mixed week. Instead of the hoped-for big console drop at the twin resellers’ online store, the PS5 could supposedly be pre-ordered at multiple outlets. Those unlucky will probably have to wait until at least next week. Unfortunately, PlayStation 5 restocks are unlikely over the Easter weekend.
Update of 04/14/2022, 1:00 p.m.: According to reports, the PS5 is also available for pre-order at the MediaMarkt branch in Lippstadt today – also bundled with Gran Turismo 7 and Horizon Forbidden West. If you are nearby, try your luck!
Update of 04/14/2022, 11:00 a.m.: If you live or are nearby: According to reports, the PS5 bundle can be pre-ordered today at the Saturn branch in Marl, North Rhine-Westphalia. At first glance, apparently, some MMS markets are following suit.
Update of April 14, 2022, 7:30 a.m.: The local campaign at MediaMarkt and Saturn has likely already taken place in many locations and pre-order capacities have sold out. But it is possible that new MMS branches will be added today. Because so far, not all stores have participated in this national campaign. At some branches, customer service probably said they wouldn’t start until Wednesday or even Thursday.
Additionally, there are also quiet rumors of a potential drop online in the days following the pre-order campaign. It is therefore still necessary to keep a watchful eye on the MMS today.
