June 29, 2022 (12:00 PM) update: Due to many concerned inquiries: Canceling a reservation is almost impossible on Amazon * – thanks to Prime, the console should arrive tomorrow Thursday.

However, there are always reports of multiple order cancellations: so if you repeatedly order a PS5 from Amazon, you could be stuck. If this applies to you, we look forward to hearing about your experience via e-mail.


June 29, 2022 (10:30 am) Patch: This may be due to a surcharge of EUR 100 over the list price that MyToys still has Horizon FIFA in stock. Now the price has been lowered from 729.99 euros to 709.99 euros. Surcharge to the suggested retail price is still € 80.


June 29, 2022 Patch (9:35): It took more than half an hour to drop the PS5 on Amazon * – huge amounts of course have gone through. So the long-awaited “boom” ensued: a large number of readers, some of whom had been chasing the PS5 for months at list price, found success this morning.

We are very happy and wish you a lot of fun with the console.


June 29, 2022 (9:00 AM) update: Amazon is on time: The Horizon bundle has just been activated * (only order with Prime!).


June 29, 2022 (8:30 AM) Patch: “Amazon has a lot to say for the Wednesday drop”, we wrote on Monday. Indeed, the probability has become much greater. Because in Horizon: The Forbidden West-Package * includes ‘Prime-Spoiler’, which usually foreshadows an imminent decline.

Prime spoiler consists of the following annotation: “Prime subscribers have priority access to PlayStation 5”. You can replace the word “priority” with “only”, as only those who log in with their Prime * account will be able to maneuver the console into the cart.

Experience has shown that Amazon’s time window is between 9am and 11am – you can now log in and add to your watchlist:

  • Official PS5 Horizon Bundle: Forbidden West Bundle + DualSense Controller – Price: Approx. 620 € * (Disc)
  • The first spoiler PS5 Horizon: Official Forbidden West Bundle – approx. € 570 * (Disc Edition)
  • PS5 Horizon: Official Forbidden West Bundle – approx. EUR 470 * (digital edition)
  • PS5 + DualSense controller white (approx. € 570 *)
  • PS5 Digital Edition + Midnight Black Controller (approx. € 470 *)
  • PlayStation 5 Horizon Bundle: Forbidden West * – Approximately € 570
  • PlayStation 5 with disc drive * for 499 euros
  • PlayStation 5 Digital Edition * for € 399

June 28, 2022 (9:00 PM) Patch: The PS5 bundle has re-emerged in Alternate *, consisting of the Digital Edition, a remote control and the premium Epos H3Pro Hybrid Headset. Total price: € 712.99. As usual, the quota will be launched gradually – here, too, it is possible to put it on the watch list.


June 28, 2022 Patch (3:55 pm): The PS5 queue has just opened on GameStop. Of course it’s for sale Horizon: The Forbidden West-Package. The website is updated automatically – access to the website is provided on a “first come, first served” basis.


June 28, 2022 (11:00 AM) update: You have to give Otto subsidiary MyToys one thing: they do it ruthlessly. Because once again this morning, the PS5 package appeared with a significant increase in prices in the range. There is one for € 729.99 plus shipping Horizon: The Forbidden West– Bundled with FIFA 22.

The market value of both products is a maximum of 630 euros – MyToys itself sells a version of the football game on PS5 for 73.99 euros.


June 28, 2022 (9:00 AM) update: This morning we got feedback again from readers who had a rather mediocre experience buying a PS5 at stationary retail.

For example, a customer at the large Saturn store in North Rhine-Westphalia only received the allegedly “last” PS5 kit in stock for an additional fee – the package was supposed to cost 699 euros instead of 644 euros. Reason: The branch must also “earn something”.

Similar incidents are reported to us from all over Germany: dealers are simply taking advantage of the shortcomings in the consoles to push for higher margins.

In principle, it’s acceptable: because the PlayStation 5 has an RRP, which is the suggested retail price. Each supplier can calculate what he thinks is the appropriate tariff – as long as he finds a buyer who is willing to do so.

GamesWirtschaft Opinion: Dealers who are sourced directly from Sony Interactive should stick to this RRP – both online and offline.

The chances of getting a PlayStation 5 from electronics stores, GameStop stores, or specialized retailers are relatively high. We always advised you to just ask on the spot or call the branch for information.


June 27, 2022 update (6:30 pm): No Activision Blizzard, Take-Two, No Sony PlayStation: After some sad news about Gamescom 2022 (August 24-28 in Cologne), Ubisoft is today the first official announcement from a major publisher. What exactly will be shown is still completely open.

Gamescom as a fixed point is important for current and future PlayStation 5 owners, as new products for the Christmas business will be known by then. With a bit of luck, Ubisoft could deliver one or the other titles to PlayStation in time for the turn of the year. With fresh Assassin’s Creed or Far cry however, this is not to be expected.


Message of June 27, 2022 (8:45 AM): Welcome to the new PS5 ticker week with hopefully many options to finally be able to buy the long-awaited console.

Because what is often said is of course true: As there are already many PS5 owners in Germany (according to our calculations: well over a million), the “run” on the device has cooled down noticeably. Thousands are no longer looking for a single box.

At the same time, we are far from a situation where PlayStation 5 can always be ordered online or picked up from a pallet in an electronics store. For example, almost a month has passed since the last drop of Amazon – more than 40 days in MediaMarkt and Saturn.

In the meantime, only very small shipments of Sony have reached dealers, which, as usual, are sold in extensive and hence expensive console / accessory / game bundles. So in terms of volumes, June was “worse” than May or April – but maybe something will happen in the remaining four working days.

The two market leaders mentioned above, Amazon and MediaMarkt / Saturn, remain the clear favorites.

in Amazon There is a lot to be said about Wednesday’s decline. We always advise you to log in with a Prime * account and put the consoles in the Amazon notebook in advance.

  • Official PS5 Horizon Bundle: Forbidden West Bundle + DualSense Controller – Price: Approx. 620 € * (Disc)
  • PS5 Horizon: Official Forbidden West Bundle – approx. € 570 * (Disc Edition)
  • PS5 Horizon: Official Forbidden West Bundle – approx. EUR 470 * (digital edition)
  • PS5 + DualSense controller white (approx. € 570 *)
  • PS5 Digital Edition + Midnight Black Controller (approx. € 470 *)
  • PlayStation 5 Horizon Bundle: Forbidden West * – Approximately € 570
  • PlayStation 5 with disc drive * for 499 euros
  • PlayStation 5 Digital Edition * for € 399

The same is true Household appliances store and Saturn: If you search for PlayStation 5 in online stores, you will see a whole series of hits that have not yet been activated. The same goes for here: create a user account (if you haven’t already), login and console “add to note”.

The exact time of the drop is unfortunately unpredictable – morning meetings are just as likely or unlikely as early afternoon meetings.

taken last week E how simple attracted attention with its spectacular action: together with Sony, the facade of the house in Cologne-Ehrenfeld was equipped with a giant PS5 controller and handcrafted in XXL size from moss and real plants. The installation can be visited until mid-July.

E for SIMPLE is the only energy provider that, in collaboration with the PS5 manufacturer, can currently offer a PlayStation package as a bonus when concluding a green gas / green electricity contract. The one-off surcharge is € 249 (previously: € 299). With the base price at MeinSmartTarif, you save an extra € 5 per month. You can find all the conditions and the exact tariffs for your region on the E wie Einfach * website.
