June 8, 2022 Patch (12:45 pm): Especially with dedicated PS5 games like Manoeuvrable or Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart The original Pulse 3D wireless headset from Sony shows its strengths. The headset usually costs around 100 euros – as part of the 2022 Fun Days, you can now buy a model from Amazon for 64.99 euros * (white) or 79 euros * (black)

June 8, 2022 (8 AM) update: If you want to stock up on games and accessories for the summer months at a particularly low price, today is your last chance: because the discounted Sony Days of Play event ends at midnight. Until then, the best offers of this year’s promotion apply. An absolute highlight: the PS5 DualSense controller, which is available for 49.99 euros and in all available colors. The suggested retail price ranges from € 70 to € 75.

All Days of Play offers can be found at:

Since today is Wednesday and since Amazon only sold the PS5 on Wednesday in 2022, today we are focusing on Amazon in particular. Check if the following products are on your watchlist (log in to your Prime account in advance):

If you are curious about what new games will be coming to your new PlayStation 5 in the coming months, you should keep tomorrow night free: the opening show of the Summer Game Fest will take place at 20:00 – including the first game scenes Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2.

June 7, 2022 (3:00 PM) update: What Amazon is testing in the US will sooner or later flow across the ocean to Europe. In this particular case, it’s an invite system designed to help “real” PS5 fans get the console – while commercial bot groups and retailers get nothing.

June 7, 2022 (12:00 PM) update: Amazon now has both official versions Horizon: The Forbidden West– Packs have been added to the offer – one is a PlayStation 5 powered * and the other is a digital edition *. The latter may indicate that we will experience another PS5 decline in the near future – possibly tomorrow, Wednesday. Because this day of the week is statistically the most promising day to get your PS5 on Amazon.

Tip: Put both models on the Amazon Watchlist.

Message of June 7, 2022 (8:45 AM): We hope you have enjoyed the long Whit Sunday weekend enough – welcome to the new, albeit shortened, PS5 Stripe Week.

The entire south of the country, namely Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria, is currently on a two-week school leave. Regarding the PlayStation 5, this has several implications as, on the one hand, many families have traveled which reduces the number of potential competitors for the drops. The effect could already be felt during previous holidays, as far fewer people are online.

Secondly, there are many headquarters of large retail chains in the south, for example in Memmingen (GameStop), Ingolstadt (MediaMarkt / Saturn), Munich (Amazon) and Ulm (Müller). Which in turn means that marketing and sales activities are usually done with foam in check. Therefore, we believe that we will not experience larger campaigns on PS5 until the end of the summer holidays, on June 20. By then, however, there should be one or two smaller drops – and PlayStation Direct is long overdue too.

Amazon’s last drop happened just a few days ago. Nevertheless, we recommend that all new PS5 ticker readers log in now with a Prime account and include the following on Amazon’s watchlist as a prophylaxis:

A Europe-wide Prime subscription is required to order PS5 from Amazon. You can test the service – which in addition to premium shipping also includes music, movies, series and gaming merchandise – for 14 days free *. Trainees and students pay nothing for 6 months and then receive a 50% discount on the standard rate * (can be canceled at any time).

If you’re interested in new PS5 games: The Summer Game Fest 2022 will take place on Wednesday evening. In addition to the announcements, for example, during the 90-120 minute live program, expect the first insights into the gameplay of the fall and winter titles Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (it will be published at the end of October).

If you don’t want to wait for the next drop, check out PS5 premium deals from cell phone and energy providers. Just a few days ago, E knows Einfach reduced the one-time surcharge for the rich PS5 package from 299 euros to 249 euros. The base price on MeinSmartTarif has also been cut by 5 euros per month. All conditions and individual tariff can be found on the E for SIMPLE * website.

If you are currently looking for a new mobile contract: O2 still has the PS5 Digital Edition with a second controller as a bonus in the O2 Grow tariff (40 GB) – while supplies last. Details and conditions *
