Always well informed: Twitter is our fastest social media channel: we regularly list PS5 sales campaigns in German stores there.
May 2, 2022 (5:00 PM) update: There is currently a bundle at Amazon consisting of the DualSense controller i Horizon: The Forbidden West (PS5) for a total of € 119.99 * – a saving of almost € 30 compared to the normal price.
May 2 update 2022 (11:05): The XXL package is listed as Alternative * but has not yet been activated. For 1089 euro the buyer gets the PlayStation 5 console, the steering wheel and the Logitech G29 pedals (market price is around 250 euro), Gran Turismo 7, WWE 2K22 and Ring of Elden. If you are interested, you should visit the article page regularly * – at some point the display will switch to “Available”.
May 2 news 2022 (11:00): We are starting the new week of the PS5 ticker with a slight delay (for reasons).
After an exciting last week of April with some small drops on PlayStation 5, we expect a rather quiet first half of May. Why? Because there are many indications that Sony Interactive in Europe will still be supplied only in a very narrow time frame, which in March and April always fell in the last third of the month. Means: In the first three weeks, PS5 was almost impossible to get hold of. This applies to the German-speaking area as well as other European countries.
We also think it’s very likely that quotas will still be very manageable – XXL drops from pre-holiday business won’t happen again anytime soon as Sony is even more affected by logistical disruptions and an acute shortage than its microchip competitors.
Purchase of a PlayStation 5 from Amazon *, Otto *, Saturn *, MediaMarkt * & Co. in May will therefore require a bit of patience – ordering options should still be available. There are consistent opinions that MediaMarkt / Saturn employees have “spoiled” another branch booking campaign for mid-May. This time also there is no official confirmation from the company – the campaign is not advertised or announced anyway.
Sony Interactive will certainly offer a console with PlayStation Direct again – clock rates have increased significantly recently.
Recent drops have caused a real flood of consoles that hit Ebay *: This Monday morning, we’ll count over 800 PS5 devices in their original packaging, including a striking number of the Digital Edition, which hardly sold in the first quarter of this year. The “Soon to end” filter gives you an idea of the current price level: you should spend 700 euros on the Blu-Ray model, and the console has been available 50 euros less in the listings on Ebay in the last few days. Incidentally, we advise against a used PS5 – why is it here.
By the way, Square Enix does Tomb Raider sold.
