Message of July 18, 2022 (8:30 AM): Welcome to the new PS5 ticker week at GamesWirtschaft. The format has a loyal following of fans who are interested in the post-console evolution of the PS5 – thank you for staying with us.

But of course, the bar is mainly there to help as many video game fans as possible get their hands on a PlayStation 5.

And that is just as simple and complicated nowadays. ‘Simple’ because you can often get your console on demand from local retailers and electronics stores – sometimes to go straight away, sometimes with waiting times of several days or weeks.

And “complicated”, because purchasing the console via the Internet has never been so laborious this year – the number of PS5 drops has dropped to a new record low. So far, in July 2022, there has not been a single notable PS5 sale from mail order companies and online stores.

In retail, it is difficult to understand why deliveries have stopped. Because in May, and even in June, Sony Interactive was on the right track. More detailed information on the development will be revealed in the updated PS5 Screenshots that we will release later today.

Good news: Statistically, the amounts of PS5 are always much higher in the second half of the month than in the first weeks. It’s not clear why this is happening, but we get the feeling there’s a lot to be said about the consoles being distributed to branch offices in each country on a regional basis – and the German-speaking area is very rarely at the same time as France, UK or the US “.

What does this mean for the current calendar week? Since the last drop of PS5 on Saturn * and MediaMarkt * was a long time ago (namely two months), we consider the two market leaders to be the most promising candidates, along with Otto *. Müller is also late. In Medimax, it’s been a quarter of a year since the last drop.

And on Amazon? After the coveted Prime Day drop has failed, there is nothing else to do but re-target your target next Wednesday. Because the PS5 was only sold on Amazon this year this business day. Check your wishlists and watchlists to see if the following items are listed there. A Prime subscription remains essential – if you’re not a member there, you won’t be able to order a PS5.

  • PS5 Horizon: Official Forbidden West Bundle – Approx. € 570 * (Disc Edition)
  • PS5 Horizon: Official Forbidden West Bundle – approx. EUR 470 * (Digital Edition)
  • Official PS5 Horizon Bundle: Forbidden West Bundle + DualSense Controller – Price: Approx. 620 € * (Disc)
  • 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
