August 1, 2022 update (8:45 am): Welcome to the new PS5 ticker week – nice to have you with us. We monitor and document the situation on the PlayStation 5 market to answer the question: where and on what conditions can you buy a PS5?

Last week, the answer was relatively simple – namely at many MediaMarkt * and Saturn * locations throughout Germany. In some cases, reservations were accepted, in others it was possible to pick up a PS5 box directly from the pallet. As usual in retail, the PS5 is sold almost exclusively in bundles, that is, in combination with games and / or accessories.

The MediaMarkt / Saturn campaign is proof that a particularly impressive number of PS5 consoles have recently been redirected to stationary retail – only a small part has gone online.

The reasons are different. It is still important for the chain to bring customers to the stores, because impulse purchases often take place there, from HDMI cables to controllers. As a side effect, scalpers and retailers who otherwise buy consoles online at scale and then sell them at a premium are at least partially slowed down. This also happens offline, but is more time consuming due to local pickup.

Increased delivery quantities can already be seen on eBay *: On Monday morning, we register almost 500 PS5 consoles in their original packaging. Prices tend to go down as there are already seven-figure numbers of PS5 owners in Germany – so the number of interested parties inevitably goes down.

If you’re looking to order a PlayStation 5 online, you should keep an eye on Amazon this week. A typical sale day is Wednesday. A Prime account remains necessary.

If you want to stock up on PS5 games at a particularly low price: the 3 for 2 campaign at MediaMarkt will run until and including tomorrow, on Tuesday. Offer: You decide on three different PS5 games available and only pay for two (full selection *). If you combine cleverly, you will quickly save 50, 60, 70 € compared to buying items individually.

The only premium PS5 provider remains E for simple. The energy supplier sells a PlayStation package (delivery time: 14 days after conclusion of the contract 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.
