The August 11 ticker
08:15: Amazon typically kicks off new PS5 sales on Wednesdays, but it was quiet yesterday, despite previous Prime notices. The well-known notice “Prime members have priority access to PlayStation 5” gave hope to many fans.
But why did Amazon issue such a notice if no sales were expected at all? Maybe something went wrong at Amazon, maybe this time the sale was not scheduled for Wednesday (as usual in previous weeks). Either way, the Prime indicator remains an indication of an impending sell-off, perhaps today.
This is exactly why we advise you to keep an eye on Amazon again today. We’ll do the same here in our PS5 Insider and let you know about an upcoming sale. Still, the odds of falling are currently pretty good. Barely a week has passed in recent months without Amazon selling the PS5.
Keep in mind that when selling on Amazon, customers with an Amazon Prime subscription have preference. If you don’t have a subscription yet, you can Try Amazon Prime for free anytime.
Opportunities at two dealerships (local)
With retailers like GameStop and Expert, it’s currently worth heading to branches near you if you want to pick up a PS5. The past few weeks have shown that Sony’s shipments are often sold directly to markets. There have been no online sales in recent weeks.

Just stop by the nearest branch and talk to the staff. Alternatively, you can call the market in advance. With Expert, you can also be put on a waiting list.
Better odds with small traders?
After the PS5 has been sold in large numbers at large retailers, small suppliers are always interesting. Every once in a while there is a little drop in the game cave. Euronics is also considered a hot contender.

More hot drop candidates
The big wave of PS5 sales in recent weeks has also been noticeable on platforms such as eBay and Amazon Marketplace. Supply 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. Make sure to check out the sellers.
One reason for the console shortage is now known: Sony shipped fewer PS5s in the first quarter of the year than ever before. You can find out why in the linked article.
Console permanently available at E for SIMPLE
If you really want a PS5 and still want to switch electricity or gas providers, 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 euros as an additional payment. Along with the console, you also get PS Plus for a year and the Horizon Forbidden West game.

Could it also be another 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 euros per month.
Console pricing offers consoles
Another way to directly purchase a PS5 is through console pricing. The retailer offers the PS5, but at 999.99 euros, it calls a price that could also come from a scalper on eBay. This is the disc version and the console is sold and shipped by the store itself.

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

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

Buy PS5 in Switzerland or Austria
The situations in Austria and Switzerland are comparable to those in 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 Spain, Italy, France or United Kingdom
Of course, you can also look beyond national borders to see if you want to buy a PS5 overseas. If you wanna do that focus on Amazon and only buy consoles sold and shipped by Amazon.
