Always well informed:
Twitter is our fastest social channel: we regularly list PS5 sales campaigns in German stores there.
May 31, 2022 (5:00 PM) update: We still get a huge number of references to the fake store that is said to be selling the PlayStation 5 under a false flag – unfortunately, pretty good. The GameStop online store is fake again, but there are some very obvious scams behind it.
Unfortunately, it always takes a while for free riders to be detained by lawful means. In the meantime, only one tip will help: be skeptical as soon as PlayStation 5 is open-ended and permanent. Greater caution applies when the advance payment is to be made by bank transfer.
The “real” GameStop can only be found at GameStop.de. The PS5 bundles were offered there for the first time in over a year last week.
May 31, 2022 update (7:30 am): With over a million PlayStation 5 owners in Germany alone, the “pressure” on retailers is inevitably not as great as it was six months ago or even at the beginning of 2021. enter the store and pick up the PS5 from the pallet.
The reality for summer 2022 is this: Sony’s PlayStation 5 is still available only by drop – once a month at most Otto *, Amazon *, Müller, Saturn *, Müller and MediaMarkt * and individual quotas at Alternate * and specialized resellers such as Spielegrotte.
As a result, high five-figure quotas regularly hit the market, but of course Sony Interactive can: bright sell more consoles – simply because the demand is greater than the available supply.
Means: Unfortunately, it is still necessary to watch the time of the dumps (or waitlist in Expert or GameStop). Statistically, it is in Amazon * great chances on Wednesday – it is impossible to reliably predict whether it will also be like this tomorrow.
Looking at the previous sales campaigns, we believe that June is likely to start as “weak” as March, April and May – which is more indicative of declines since the middle of the month.
The effects of a congested shipping container in Shanghai are completely unpredictable and, according to experts, will not have a real impact until the summer. Because everything that comes to Rotterdam or Bremerhaven from Asia is on the way from mid-April at the latest.
May 30, 2022 (10:30 am) Patch: Most of the hits are still being released – Also – for PlayStation 4. But the transition to the current generation consoles has already started in leading studios. Latest example: The A decline in order-Successor Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will only be released on PC, Xbox Series X / S and PlayStation 5 in 2023 – so PS4 will be “left out”.
Similar reports are likely to come out more frequently in the coming weeks and months. Anyone hesitating so far should switch over in the coming months to really be able to play all the best titles in the future.
Sony PlayStation Studios still mainly supports both platforms (see Horizon: The Forbidden West, God of war Ragnarok, Gran Turismo 7), but the upcoming PSVR2 games are inevitably only available on PS5.
Message of May 30, 2022 (7:30): Welcome to the new PS5 ticker week. At GamesWirtschaft, you can find out how and where you can most likely buy a PlayStation 5.
PS5 May in Germany is almost a 1: 1 copy of April: one drop each Otto *, Amazon * and Müller, and three PlayStation Direct campaigns.
The main difference from the previous month concerns the “missing” pre-sale campaign in MediaMarkt and Saturn stores: The company decided to sell the existing quota through online stores. For the first time since the launch of PS5 Saturn * and MediaMarkt * also increase the marketing pressure to get rid of consoles – for example through social media posts. This has never existed in this form before – a clear indication that we are gradually entering the primary care phase.
Also new: GameStop is back in the PS5 screenshot industry – After an almost year break, it was possible to order PlayStation 5 again at gamestop.de, in this case a Horizon: The Forbidden West-Package. We assume that retailers will see more and more of this bundle in the coming days and weeks.
The console and controller combination is a novelty at Amazon which, to the best of our knowledge, has not yet been offered:
- PS5 + DualSense wireless controller white (price unknown * – approx. € 570)
- PS5 Digital Edition + Midnight Black controller (price unknown * – approx. € 470)
Also in terms of:
We advise you to put all items listed on the Amazon Watchlist. The Prime subscription is also important: without Prime, you cannot order PS5 from Amazon (14-day free trial *).
The PlayStation 5 can be arranged in a relatively casual form thanks to various bonus offers – delivery time is usually only two weeks after conclusion of the contract and payment of the surcharge. Please note that bids can be withdrawn at any time as soon as the quotas are sold out. If you are interested in one of the packages below, you should make a quick decision:
Let us know by email when you can deliver your pre-ordered PlayStation 5 or when you can pick it up. When you bring your newly shipped console to the TwitterInstagram and Facebook, go ahead and connect GamesWirtschaft or use a hashtag # PS5 has landed – it’s the fastest way for us to find you.
