July 5, 2022 Patch (1:50 PM): A note to the reader (thank you!) Reinforces the impression that retailers are now redirecting larger contingents to the stationary area – that is, to branches and shops. The expert group is of course one of the insider tips: there are electronic markets all over Germany – not only in big cities, but also in rural areas.

In particular, the Horizon: Forbidden West bundle is sold. If you were successful: send us an email, preferably with a photo.

July 5, 2022 Patch (12:50 pm): The new PS5 bundle has arrived in Alternative *: it can be purchased for € 760 Horizon: The Forbidden West-Package, Gran Turismo 7 and Pulse 3D wireless headset.

The purchase price corresponds to the suggested retail price and is therefore fine. Note: The article can only be ordered in stages. The bundle is only sold out when it disappears from the product overview.

July 5, 2022 Patch (12:45 pm): We are happy to capture the reader’s tip and inform you that PlayStation 5 can still be ordered from MyToys – in the form of an attached package Horizon: The Forbidden West and FIFA 22 for € 709.99 plus shipping.

The fact that the package has been on the MyToys offer almost continuously for many days is probably due to the sports price, which is at the level of Ebay. Because the sum of the list prices is around 610 €. Means: The sender of the toy charges a surcharge of almost € 100.

July 5, 2022 Patch (8:50 am): In May, E wie Einfach won the PlayStation 5 at GamesWirtschaft. We will draw and notify the winner in the coming days – if you take part, we keep our fingers crossed for you.

July 5, 2022 (8:30 am) Patch: We don’t have to beat around the bush: the summer lame cucumber has started – and this is especially true of fresh software.

The bigger title may have just come out in the form of F1 22 *, but PS5 owners are actually waiting for hits of this caliber God of War: Ragnarok. However, there is still no date for that – and no momentum from Gamescom in this regard can be expected.

Basically, there will be little that is going to be spectacular in terms of software in the coming months except for a PS5 remake The last of us, part 1* which will be released on September 2.

This “Covid vulnerability”, which is now fully visible, will certainly also be visible at the end of July, when Sony Interactive will present data for the second quarter (April to June). It will be exciting to what extent the PlayStation Plus restart is already bearing fruit.

In any case, the announced increase in PS5 production has not yet been noticed on the market: declines are usually rare and slight – Amazon * & Co. only receives a larger shipment at intervals of a few weeks.

The MediaMarkt / Saturn group is currently at the top of our favorites list as PlayStation 5 was last sold online there in May (!). There are a few more nice packages in the console overview that you can exchange now (click on the “heart” symbol – login required). When dropping, items can then be placed in the basket.

Message of July 4, 2022 (8:30 AM): Welcome to the new week on PS5 which will hopefully bring some good news to anyone interested in PlayStation 5.

Last week’s balance is ambiguous: the XXL drop from Amazon * defies a large number of smaller campaigns – here a few devices on GameStop, there is a contingent in Computeruniverse or MyToys, in between the usual Alternate * packages.

The fact that large and reliable drop-organizers like Saturn *, MediaMarkt *, Euronics *, Medimax and Müller haven’t been selling PS5 online for weeks, sometimes months, is a bit annoying. Almost 100 days have passed in Medimax: the last campaign took place in March.

The truth is, however, that some consoles went directly to the affiliates, as readers tell us. It’s still worth asking the gaming department of electronics stores or specialized dealers – with a bit of luck, the box can be taken with you.

Unfortunately, some branch managers still charge extra to the price list, which in our opinion is not justified: the games and accessories that are included in the price provide a sufficient margin, so you don’t have to rip off your customers “add-on for harsh conditions”.

Speaking of rip-off: As a result of Amazon’s decline last Wednesday, the number of originally packaged PS5 bundles on Ebay * has slightly increased (to almost 580), but by no means as much as it would have been with previous XXL campaigns. Which suggests scalpers and sellers are starting to lose interest – also because getting rid of the console at inflated prices has become much more difficult.

With a projected number of well over 1 million PS5 owners in Germany, the pressure on demand is simply much lower than six months ago or even before Christmas 2021.

If you want to be part of (possible) drops this week we advise you to create a customer account with your chosen dealer and log in. Put the desired items on the watchlists, which saves a lot of time.

The following bundles were recently sold on Amazon:

  • Official PS5 Horizon Bundle: Forbidden West Bundle + DualSense Controller – Price: Approx. 620 € * (Disc)
