July 26, 2022 (9:00 AM) update: Just six months ago, many video game fans would have bent over to get their hands on the PlayStation 5. The drops were over within minutes. Anger, frustration, and triumph lie side by side.

Today – at least 20 months after the market launch – it’s different: only a few really move heaven and earth to get a console. This effect can be seen not only in German-speaking countries, but also internationally.

After many months of the state of emergency, we have entered the normal phase. Not that the PS5 is no longer in demand and is often sold out – but last-minute panic has given way to deep relaxation. Motto: If that doesn’t work today, then tomorrow. Or next week.

Especially now in the summer and holiday months, there are certainly more important topics, especially since – except for pearls like Stray – there is simply a lack of fresh gaming software. Only in the fall when FIFA 23, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and, of course God of War: Ragnarok (can be pre-ordered *) come, you will see the increased “gear” on PlayStation 5 again (and of course especially in the holiday business).

A pleasant side effect: eBay dealers and sellers are increasingly being left with exorbitant packages – three-digit surcharges are only accepted by customers in exceptional cases.


July 25, 2022 Patch (12:10 pm): As expected, Sony Interactive has opened the PS5 queue on PlayStation Direct. Consoles, which did not find a buyer in the “private dump” this morning, have been on sale for several minutes. We keep our fingers crossed!


Message from July 25, 2022 (8:30 a.m.): Welcome to the new PS5 ticker week at GamesWirtschaft – nice to have you with us.

The most important information right now: There will be another PS5 sale on PlayStation Direct on Monday morning – as usual between 10:30 and 12:00. Sony Interactive wrote to selected customers yesterday afternoon. If you have expressed interest in PSN, you should check your inbox (including spam folder).

There is at least a theoretical possibility that the “surplus”, ie not triggered, consoles will go on sale again around noon – at least that was the case last Friday. If you want to take advantage of this option, log in to PlayStation Direct now. In the event of the PS5 sale, you will be directed to the queue from 12:00.

Many readers reported over the weekend about successful PS5 purchases at their MediaMarkt or Saturn stores. Packages and terms are designed very differently – some department heads have been tempted to charge much more than the list price and / or introduce an extended warranty condition.

Anyone who has booked and paid for a package in the last few days can probably pick up their PlayStation 5 within a week. In most cases, it was replaced on July 28 or 29.

On this occasion: You can stock up on PS5 games very cheaply at MediaMarkt until August 2. Both in the store and online *, you can currently purchase the three available games for the price of two (only valid for in-store / in-store games and while supplies last).

If there’s another PS5 drop on Amazon * this week, there’s a lot to say on Wednesday. Because on this day of the week, Amazon has already started its PS5 sales campaign seven times in 2022. Whether this will happen again on Wednesday we will probably clarify on Tuesday night – as dips are usually indicated by “Prime spoilers”.

If you want, you can already put the selected consoles on your watchlist. In any case, it’s important to use a Prime account – otherwise the order will fail from the start.

Some consoles that were sold last week by MediaMarkt, Saturn, Müller, Medimax and Amazon have appeared on eBay *. We currently count 450 new PS5 models. You have to reckon with around 700 euros for the package; if you are only interested in the “naked console”, with a little luck and patience you can get it for 650 euros.

A couple of PS5 packs that have been pretty wildly stacked together can still be ordered from Kaufland. The shipment is not carried out by one of the platform’s distributors, but directly by Kaufland (package 1, package 2, package 3, package 4). The price-performance ratio varies greatly. If you can come to terms with the fact that some PS4 games are being forced on you, then there’s basically nothing to say against your order – but you should use a sharp pencil to figure out how far the purchase price is from the sum of the list prices. More information on “PS5 in Kaufland” can be found in this support article.

We know that many PS5 ticker readers are speculating about a new bonus campaign from a DSL provider or mobile operator. Recently, however, there have been few such offers. The only constant is still E for simple. You will receive a PlayStation package from the energy supplier in Cologne (delivery time: 14 days after contract signature and bank transfer / surcharge: 249 €). The terms and conditions and all tariffs for green electricity and green gas for your region can be found on the E wie Einfach * website.
