Availability of the PlayStation 5: The current situation

The PlayStation 5, although the start of sales already took place in November 2020, is still not available nationwide. In recent weeks, there were at least occasional “Drops”, where the console was available several times in limited quotas for a short time (mostly minutes) at different online retailers. Most recently, there were a few copies of the disc version on 23.09. At Saturn and Mediamarkt – unfortunately these are already sold out. Anyone who wants to raise his chances to catch the PS5 in retail sales, should keep the following dealers in their view and, if necessary, strike quickly.

PS5 on the crest market – on eBay

A big problem with the availability of the PS5 lies with the so-called scalders. These are bots that are continuously scanning shop pages and buying consoles as soon as they are available. The BOT operators want to further buy consoles on trading platforms such as Ebay thanks to the artificial shortage with profit. Although the method seems morally questionable, it is of course an option to buy the console with an estimate on eBay. But we recommend studying the offers exactly on seriousness of the dealers, the origin of the hardware, warranty / warranty and delivery date.

  • Graumarkt: PS5 Digital from approx. 630 Euro , PS5 DISC from approx. 700 Euro (eBay)

Ebay prices indirectly provide an impression of the relationship and demand. We observe the eBay prices exactly, several times a week determine the best price of reputable ebay dealers to consoles with the state of “new” and “buy immediate buy” option that are available from Germany. From this it can be derived how far the PlayStation 5 is still available in width. Here the prices are recently attracted again. While the PS5 with DISC drive was traded at prices of 650 euros in August, the cheapest prices are currently again over 700 euros. The PS5 without optical drive also costs around 670 euros again, while it was still available for 550 euros in late summer. This corresponds to surcharges of 40 to 70 percent compared to the UVP – pure usury! Unfortunately, Scalping seems to be worthwhile.

PS5 buy by tariff bundle

Even if the PlayStation 5 is currently practically permanently sold out in retail, you can sometimes order them together with a cell phone, internet or electricity tariff , because there are no scalper. Unfortunately, there are currently no tariffs available.
