With the right tips and tricks, you can get one of the most coveted next-gen consoles that much easier. We’ll also show you which alternative providers and raffles you can still find what you’re looking for.
The July 6 ticker
8:56 a.m.: At Amazon, the Prime note next to the PS5 indicates a possible sale. It has not yet appeared in this country, but on Amazon Spain and Great Britain. So there could be a drop in those countries. You can usually order the console from abroad.
8:06 a.m.: It’s Wednesday and that means you should keep an eye on Amazon in the morning if you’re looking to buy a PS5. If the online retailer drops, then Wednesday between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. But other dealerships are also interesting today.
Your chances of getting your hands on a console at branches of Media Markt and Saturn are still good. There has been speculation of a drop online for the past few weeks, but this has not materialized so far. Otto is another big retailer to watch. It has been on sale there regularly in the recent past.

As a little insider tip, we can give you Cyberport. It could be that the retailer offers the PS5 today. We infer that from recent sales. These took place on April 6 and May 6, which is why it is reasonable to assume that the decline could also occur today, July 6. However, the sell-off remained on June 6, so you have to take this forecast with a grain of salt.
Opportunities at four dealerships (local)
With retailers such as Media Markt, Saturn, GameStop and Expert, it’s currently worth visiting branches near you if you want to buy a PS5. The past few weeks show that Sony’s shipments were 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.
Two other important touchpoints are Media Markt and Saturn. Although the two marketplaces haven’t held online sales for a month, the console is sold locally at many branches. Hopefully, the electronics store near you will still have some in stock. Again, we recommend calling ahead and asking.

Get ready for Amazon sales – here’s how it works
by the way: In order to be able to hit Amazon directly in an emergency, you must request a Main Membership lock. Because the mail order company’s PS5 deals are often exclusively available to Prime customers. A trial subscription is sufficient.
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 seen as a hot contender at the end of the month.

PS5 maker Sony also sells the PS5. You have the option of purchasing a console on exclusive sale via PlayStation Direct. Sony intends to continue to grow sales through its internal platform in the future.

The next exclusive sale could therefore be imminent. So register quickly.
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. Be 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.
at Repurchase buy ps5*
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.
