Update on 04/19/2022, 09:09: There was a brief false alarm in Müller. The PS5 was apparently listed there for a very short time under Multimedia (but not as available) and now it’s gone again and isn’t listed at all. Nevertheless, as a precaution, monitor the provider more closely today and in the coming days. It doesn’t necessarily mean anything, but it could be an indication that something might be happening there in the near future. Because the last time there was a false alarm in Müller, the fall followed a few hours later.

Update of April 19, 2022, 8:50 a.m.: If you haven’t received an invitation for the closed PS5 sale on PlayStation Direct: it is not yet clear if there will be another open sale later today, in which all interested parties can try their hand at chance. However, we are keeping a close eye on all of this for you and will let you know as soon as possible here in the form of an update if this should happen.

Buy PS5: Post-Easter Restock – You should keep an eye out for these retailers now

Where was the last time you bought the PS5? Over the past week, many interested parties have been able to get a PS5 – but mostly in local campaigns. On April 12 there was a drop on PlayStation Direct, the same day MediaMarkt and Saturn launched an extensive pre-order campaign at many local stores. Conrad also proved to be THE insider tip ahead of Easter and continued to sell the PS5 locally in many markets. However, the hoped-for drop at OTTO, which had been expected for weeks, did not materialize.

Which retailers are particularly hot right now? Here are our predictions for the current week:

  • PlayStation Direct: Even though Sony only recently discontinued the PS5 (April 12), they are now adding to the sale internally. The next closed drop (by invitation) is scheduled for 04/19. already confirmed. The campaign is expected to start at 10:30 a.m. German time and last until around 12:00 p.m. It is not known if this will be followed by an open sale.
  • Amazon: The shipping giant could also be exciting. Because Amazon, as a regular guarantor of replenishment, has always fallen in the last third or at the very end of the month. Even though the mandatory Prime notice has yet to be viewed, a closer look couldn’t hurt for now.
  • OTTO: For almost 2 months without PS5 drops, although all other major PS5 suppliers have already sold here in Germany – sometimes several times. OTTO should soon become the guarantor of guaranteed restocking. Arguably still the hottest candidate for online streaming after PS Direct.
  • Euronic: Also still considered hot because Euronics, once a regular supplier of supplies, simply hasn’t sold PS5 consoles or bundles in over 3 months.
  • Media Markt and Saturn: The big local pre-order campaign at local MMS branches should have been everywhere by now. You should always be careful here. Because the rumor is still circulating that MediaMarkt and Saturn could possibly have an online drop in the next few days, since that’s how it went after the last MMS pre-order campaign.

Buy PS5: Where are you most likely to get your supplies this week?

Buy PS5: PS5 supplies are still scarce – will things finally get better soon?

When will the PS5 situation finally improve? In short: hard to say. However, what is considered certain in the industry and with many retailers: at least in the next few months, the situation should not change much. Sony itself announced delivery bottlenecks for the first months of the year, which were particularly noticeable in February and March 2022. It was not until the end of March that the situation of the offer has at least improved somewhat. But even now the drops are rare and usually seem small.

In general, one should continue to assume that there will be a PS5 deficit for the foreseeable future. Some experts even assume that this situation will last throughout 2022. But if you want to get a PS5 without too much stress and would also accept a higher price, then we recommend the following article: Buying a PS5: dusting off the the console guaranteed – these dealers always have supplies
