Why is the PlayStation 5 out of stock?
The current health situation does not help the plans of the electronics manufacturers. In fact, the production lines are congested and struggling to get the products out. The supply of certain components that are essential for the manufacture of smartphones, televisions and consoles is in short supply. This global shortage is causing trouble for almost all industries, including the video game industry. Another problem is that not all brands are in the same boat. Apple, Samsung and Huawei can definitely be seen as a priority over Sony or Microsoft. For comparison: the sales volumes of Apple, Samsung or Huawei phones are much higher in one year than the entire lifespan of a PS5 or Xbox series! Indeed, it is reasonable to believe that the next generation is likely to take precedence over other more interesting products in terms of sales generated and sales volume. As a result, containers used for PS5 replenishment around the world are filling slower and seeing prices spike. This doesn’t add anything to Sony’s business. However, all is not lost so far as the Japanese brand is present in other markets and which could be an advantage. Anyway, we see small PS5 reorders on a regular basis proving factories are slowing down but not stopping in any way and this is already good news.
When will the PS5 be back in stock?
Time is starting to get long. After a November 19 launch that is estimated to have sold more than 3 million consoles in just a few days, those who were able to acquire a console late last year are very happy. Since then, inventory returns have been observed in very small amounts in December. This situation is not favorable to Sony, and it is for this very reason that things are expected to move quickly. The production chains are running at full speed and have to deliver the consoles in sufficient quantities at the beginning of the year. The next waves of PS5 should therefore arrive this month.
Which distributors are best at getting PS5 stock?
Logically, all players in the distribution get a replenishment for a lot of PS5, which is distributed depending on the area. However, retailers are free to choose when to market. For this reason, we see different times depending on the dealer. Most of the time, FNAC and Cdiscount come first, followed by Auchan. It is therefore likely that the first PS5 stocks marketed in 2021 will be on the side of these brands. Of course, Micromania, Amazon, E.Leclerc and others will be there. It remains to be seen what amount will be allocated to the area. When the number of PS5s is very limited, the distribution between the distributors is very narrow. As in the previous year, the shares should therefore be used up in a few minutes. However, when replenishment is more important, the need can be met for some time. Anyway, we hope for better visibility of the situation.
As you know, the situation will remain difficult in 2021 and will not be conducive to buying in store. However, the brands have been organized for many months. Clicking and collecting has been democratized and ensures quick reception to minimize the risks. This generation start is organized exclusively online for a reception at home or at your dealer.
What are the differences between the two PlayStation 5 models?
The machine, available in two versions, was launched in France on November 19th. The first difference between these two versions is the price. Higher for the standard version it is set at $ 499.99 while the All Digital version sells for $ 399.99. The second big difference is in the optical drive, which is present in the standard version and absent in the cheapest version. The price argument remains decisive, but the service component should not be overlooked, especially with the digital version!
The PS Plus has a new offer with the ability to play a selection of PlayStation 4 titles that are freely accessible on the platform and exclusive to PS Plus subscribers. In this way, you will have access to a large catalog of titles to start the adventure well with your PlayStation 5 while you wait for the most important exclusive products of this year such as Horizon: Forbidden West or God Of War Ragnarok.
As a reminder, the PS5 package contains the console, a controller, a base station, an HDMI cable, a power adapter, a USB cable and the Astro’s playroom game, which can be downloaded via the PSN.
2021: Towards a Normalization of PS5 Sales?
The least we can say is that the communication of the PS5 in 2020 will have been rich in twists and turns with unforgettable highlights for fans of the gaming world. The unveiling of the first PS5 game, the technical demonstration of the Unreal Engine 5, the various game states including June 11th, when the games for the launch and the upcoming year 2021 were presented in detail, marked the mood and, in particular, prepared the ground . There are also interviews with information and surprises from third-party editors. With the release of the famous console that has arrived in the editorial offices and for which Kaaraj gives us his verdict, the wait could have ended there. Unfortunately, inventory levels still keep millions of players waiting for the long-awaited next-generation passage. However, 2021 should make it possible to resolve this problem and return to normal by the end of the year.
Joe Biden wants to fix the problem with the lack of PS5 and XBOX series
The lack of components continues to plague manufacturers. While replenishment still fails to meet demand, the shortage persists. This situation affects all industries and particularly that of technology. With the United States at the strategic center of this industry, the country could be hard hit by the consequences of this health crisis in this area. Joe Biden wants to eliminate this impasse in a rather dark way. The president could move factories to Uncle Sam’s land to increase manufacturing capacity and put America back at the center of the equation. Regardless of the geopolitical ramifications of such a decision, it can lead to an increase in celebrity replenishment PS5 and Xbox Series X.. If this plan works, the situation could improve and, in the best case scenario, the deficiency could possibly be remedied. Let’s hope so.
