The latest reports on the availability of the Sony PlayStation 5. Find out more about the current situation here.
At these dealers you currently have the highest chance of getting hold of a PS5. Attention: The number of consoles in each drop is currently very low.

The situation on May 30th
7:57: Like the last few days, it’s quiet on May 30th for the PS5. But that can change quickly over the course of the day. Media Markt, Saturn and Amazon in particular are considered to be major drop candidates again this week. But smaller traders like Medimax or Expert, which are long overdue, could also surprise. As always, we will inform you about the current situation.
Danger! O2 offers one of the few permanently available solutions to get a PS5. There you get the PS5 in a bundle with a mobile phone tariff.

Prepare for future Amazon sales
by the way: So that you can strike directly at Amazon in the event of an emergency, you should have completed a Prime membership in advance. Because the PS5 deals from the mail order company are often exclusively available to Prime customers. A trial membership is sufficient.
You should also prepare for a sale on Amazon France and Amazon Italy. There are already two dates on which the console should be offered.
Another chance to get a PS5 via Amazon: the Amazon Prime Video channel is giving away a PS5 bundle on Instagram. It consists of the disc edition and the game Horizon Forbidden West. You can find out what you have to do for this in the post.
You can find one here Post from Instagram, which complements the article. With one click you can display it.
Even with Medimax, there could soon be a PS5 drop. The retailer has not been able to offer any consoles for two months.

You won’t be happy with a PlayStation 5 alone – you also need the right TV. This gaming bundle could have come about at Computeruniverse in one way or another. Included is an LG OLED55C17LB 4K TV, optionally in 48, 55 or 65 inch screen size, and a PS5 disc edition.

The bundle is no bargain. If you subtract the non-binding retail price of the console from the package price, the television is around 200 dollars more expensive than if you were to buy it alone. It is currently available from around 1,080 dollars. If this surcharge is worth it to you, you can have the console with you in two days delivery time.
For this week we are again relying on “old friends”: In the past few weeks, Media Markt has been able to offer a surprising number of consoles for a long time. Perhaps this trend will repeat itself. You should definitely keep an eye on Media Markt and Saturn.
After the PS5 was sold in large numbers at the large dealers, the smaller providers are always interesting. At the end of last week there was already a small drop in the game grotto. Euronics is also considered a hot candidate towards the end of the month.

More hot drop candidates on May 30th
The big wave of PS5 sales in recent weeks was also noticeable on platforms such as eBay and the Amazon Marketplace. The offer is currently higher than it has been for a long time. Thus, resellers are forced to lower their prices. However, we advise caution when buying a console this way. Be sure to check the sellers.
Xbox Series X and console shortage background
The Xbox Series X is also rarely available. Now, however, a new offer from Microsoft could provide a remedy. Because now you can buy the console from the manufacturer with a certified refurbishment – and even save. You can find everything you need to know in the linked article.
One reason for the shortage of consoles has now become known: Sony delivered fewer PS5s in the first quarter of the year than ever before. You can find out why in the linked article.
Where could more PS5 consoles be sold?
If you want to secure a PS5, we advise you not only to keep an eye on large dealers, but also to check the offers from smaller dealers in particular. Providers such as Expert and Medimax and Cyberport have not been supplied for a long time, so you should keep an eye on their websites and branches.

A visit to Otto and MyToys could also be worthwhile. Both dealers have PS5 sightings at irregular intervals and you should also keep an eye on the subsidiary Baur.

The PS5 manufacturer Sony also sells the PS5. In exclusive PlayStation Direct sales you have the chance to buy a console. Although the actions in recent weeks have been anything but smooth, they have taken place exceptionally often. So the next exclusive sale could be just around the corner. So register quickly.

Console permanently available from E for SIMPLE
If you really want a PS5 and would like to change your electricity or gas provider anyway, you can get the console from E for SIMPLE. There you will receive it as a bonus for a new contract. There are only 299 dollars as an additional payment. In addition to the console, you also get PS Plus for a year and the game Horizon Forbidden West.

Console fare offers consoles
Another way to buy a PS5 directly is console fare. The retailer has the PS5 on offer, but at 999.99 dollars it calls a price that could also come from a scalper on eBay. It is the disc version and the console is sold and shipped by the shop itself.

Used PS5 from AsGoodAsNew and ReBuy
If a used PS5 is enough for you, you can buy the console from ReBuy. However, the prices there are currently rather unreasonable. Depending on the optical condition, you pay 739 dollars to 799 dollars for the disc version and 719 dollars to 789 dollars for the digital edition. New consoles are currently cheaper on eBay.

AsGoodAsNew also offers you used consoles in good condition again and again. However, the prices are also quite high at this dealer. Currently available offers start at 699 dollars.

Buy PS5 in Switzerland or Austria
The situations in Austria and Switzerland are comparable to Germany: the console is sold out very quickly, both online and offline. You also have the best chances there in the relevant online shops.
Buy PS5 on Amazon Europe, Italy, France or UK
Of course you can also look across national borders to see if you want to buy a PS5 abroad. If you want to do that focus on Amazon and only buy consoles that are sold and shipped by Amazon.
