10:50 am: You can also get to the PS5 via Sony itself. The manufacturer offers you the console in an exclusive sale at irregular intervals via PlayStation Direct. To participate in a future sale, all you need to do is register with your PSN account. Before an action you will be notified by email.

9:52 am: When looking for a PS5, it can also be worth looking at eBay. For a few months, the console has also been available on the sales platform at relatively good prices. The PS5 consoles and bundles are still a bit more expensive. Make sure you choose a trusted retailer and the Sony console can be yours in no time.
8:59 am: If you don’t feel like queuing, you can currently get the PS5 bundled with Horizon Forbidden West and an additional controller from Amazon. However, the package is slightly more expensive at 720 dollars. The console should arrive with you on October 26th if you strike promptly. Such a sale on Amazon has become rare, so you have to be quick.
8:45 am: In addition to the retailers already mentioned, Amazon is currently also a safe place to go for purchasing the PlayStation 5. In the shop you can use the invite button to register for the next sale of the Horizon Forbidden West bundle. You will receive an email from Amazon when it is your turn.
However, it may take some time before you receive the relevant email. The contingents are also limited at Amazon and the demand is high. However, patience pays off. Because when the time comes, you can put the console in your shopping cart without any stress and buy it for a fair price.
7:45 o clock: In September it was still relatively quiet in the online shops of the larger retailers. That’s why you should keep an eye on them especially at the end of the month if you want to buy a PS5.
You could have particularly good chances in the next few days at Media Markt and Saturn. It’s been a while since the last online drop at both retailers. However, you can always try your luck in the branches. It has become easier to get hold of the PS5 there. The console was recently sold in bulk, especially at openings, anniversaries and other celebrations.
Other hot candidates for an upcoming drop are Otto and Müller. The contingents are often a bit smaller at these dealers, but you can count on relatively regular sales, especially with Otto. Drugstore Müller has also proven to be a good source in recent months. It’s been a long time since the last PS5 drop there, so it’s becoming increasingly likely that the console will be available again soon.

But in addition to all the well-known dealers, you should not ignore the small providers. Inconspicuous online retailers can turn out to be real insider tips. Since many do not have this on their screens, your chances of buying the coveted PS5 are good if it drops.
For example, yesterday the console was offered with a FIFA 23 DLC for 649 dollars at Computeruniverse. So that you don’t miss such drops, you should always keep an eye on our insider. We will inform you about all PS5 sales.
Sales opportunities at local dealers
Don’t you want to buy the console on the Internet, but in the classic store? Then drop by Media Markt and Saturn. It might be worthwhile for you to visit a market near you. You can often take the console with you or pre-order it. To save time, call the staff ahead of time to check if the PS5 is in stock.
With the dealers GameStop and Expert, it is currently worth visiting branches near you if you want to buy a PS5. The past few weeks have shown that Sony’s deliveries here have often been sold directly in the markets. There has been no online sale there in recent weeks.

Just stop by the nearest branch and speak to the staff. Alternatively, you can call the market beforehand. With Expert you can also be put on a waiting list.
Better chances with small traders?
After the PS5 was sold in large numbers at the large dealers, the smaller providers are always interesting. From time to time there is a small drop in the game grotto. Euronics is also considered a hot candidate.

More hot drop candidates
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.
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.
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 249 dollars as an additional payment. In addition to the console, you also get PS Plus for a year and the game Horizon Forbidden West.

Can it also be a different console? If you sign up for a mobile phone contract with O2, you will receive an Xbox Series S with 512 gigabytes of storage space. The price depends on the plan you choose. On average, however, you pay around 30 dollars per month.
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.
