Shortly after its release date on November 19. November 2020, the Playstation 5 was almost completely sold out everywhere – despite its high price of 499.00 Euros for the edition with drive and 399.00 Euros for the Digital Edition without drive. And also these days it is anything but easy to get hold of a PS5. As soon as the popular console from Sony is available at a retailer, it is also already out of stock again.
So when does the next PS5 sale start? And where do you get the Playstation 5 right now? We keep you up to date and have all the latest info for you:
Where to buy the Playstation 5 today? The short answer: nowhere. And also the weekend will pass without any drops worth mentioning according to experience. In addition, “Games Wirtschaft” has noticed a shift in the last weeks. So the console is increasingly only available in stationary trade – for example at Media Markt, Saturn, Expert or Gamestop. Online, on the other hand, the PS5 is sold less and less often.
So you shouldn’t expect to be able to order the Playstation 5 online this weekend. You can probably save yourself a trip to the electronics store of your choice. The best hope is and remains currently Amazon*. The note “Prime members have priority access to PlayStation 5,” an indicator of an upcoming drop, has been removed from the product page, but it’s still there. Nevertheless, in the past there were relatively reliable new PS5 supplies once a month. Accordingly, the PS5 could be available again within the next two weeks. Very important: To be able to buy the PS5, you will need a Prime membership*, since the limited contingent will probably only be enough for Prime customers.
TipPack the Playstation 5 already now on your list with Amazon, in order not to have to look for a long time in the case of a possible drop!
We’re at the point we’ve been so many times before: Weeks have slipped by and some retailers haven’t sold a single Playstation 5 in that time. The good news: from experience, this indicates that these online stores are next in line, and you can focus your efforts here. We advise you to keep an eye on Otto* and Euronics* in the next few days.
And how does it look at Amazon? After the mail-order giant only had the popular console back in the assortment in mid-January, it should actually take a while until the next sales promotion. However, confusion is caused by the note “Prime members have priority access to the PlayStation 5”, which can still be seen on the product page for the Digital Edition of PS5* since the last drop. Actually, this sentence means that a new contingent will be unlocked soon. So far, however, nothing has happened here. The console is still listed as “Currently not available.
As “Games Wirtschaft” notes, all sorts of fake stores are currently online again, claiming to have Playstation 5 consoles in their assortment and to be able to deliver immediately. These are alleged GameStop online stores. GameStop generally does not sell the PS5 via the online store.
Otherwise, things don’t look particularly rosy on the Playstation 5 market this Wednesday. Many fans continue to wait for a drop at Amazon*, which continues to drag on. There are also no concrete indications of an imminent sales campaign in other stores so far. We still advise you to keep an eye on the following retailers:
Also today it does not look particularly exciting on the Playstation 5 front. The usual suspects – i.e. Amazon*, Media Markt*, Saturn*, Alternate* and Co. – have not moved so far. Those who do not hold their feet still any longer and want to buy the popular Sony console today, however, have another option. You can also buy the PS5 in a bundle with a new cell phone tariff or DSL contract. Currently you can get the PS5 Digital Edition at O2 for example.* The deal also includes a second controller and the O2 tariff Free M 20 GB. You can find all information about the rate in the following article:
Where can you buy the Playstation 5 this Monday?? After the massive drops in the past week, it should now take a while again until there are big sales promotions at the retailers. There is still a small glimmer of hope these days. Since the last PS5 drop at Amazon, the product page of the PS5 console with drive* still says “Prime members have priority access to the PlayStation 5”. This sentence traditionally always appears shortly before Amazon releases console contingents again. However, this could of course also be a technical defect. In any case, we advise you to keep a close eye on the product page in the next few days. According to experience, the Playstation 5 is always available in the early morning hours between 08:00 and 11:00 a.m. Then, as always, it’s time to hold out, because no matter how large the contingent is, the Sony device will be sold out within a few seconds.
After an eventful week, the Playstation 5 supply situation looks worse again this Friday. The best chance to get one of the coveted consoles today is at Amazon, where there is still a note saying “Prime members have priority access to the PlayStation 5” on the product page of the PS5*. This is usually an indicator that there could be a drop soon, but currently it has been a few days in the making. Alternatively, the console is currently available again at O2*. There you can buy the Digital Edition with a second controller and the O2 Free M contract with 20 gigabytes for 39.99 euros per month. In addition, there is a one-time down payment of 45.98 Euros, shipping costs and connection fee. The term is 24 months. This offer is usually sold out quickly as well, so you shouldn’t hesitate for too long.
Yesterday’s Wednesday was – there’s no other way to put it – a true highlight after a long dry spell for all PS5 fans. Not only at Amazon* consoles were sold yesterday. Also at Alternate* you could try your luck. Here was a brand new bundle listed until the evening hours. This consisted of the console, an EPOS H3PRO Hyrid headset, and the games “Dirt5” and “Riders Republic”. Cost: 969,00 Euro. Currently it is no longer available. At Amazon it also went fast as usual. The Digital Edition and the bundle including “Horizon Forbidden West” are already no longer available. On the product page for the console with drive*, we still see the note “Prime members have priority access to PlayStation 5” this morning. If and when there will be a replenishment is not clear at the moment.
After Playstation 5 consoles were sold again at Media Markt* and Saturn* in the stationary trade in addition to Alternate* and Amazon*, many devices should end up directly on Ebay*. In principle, there is nothing against buying here. However, you should make sure that the console is available in sealed original packaging and with the retailer’s invoice.
The time has come! Finally, we can tell you something concrete about a Playstation 5 drop: Since yesterday evening, you can find on the Amazon product pages for the Playstation 5 with drive* and the Digital Edition* the note “Prime members have priority access to the PlayStation 5”. This listing is known to be followed by a sales promotion of Sony’s highly coveted console.
Now it is called to be fast and vigilant. Experience shows that the sale takes place between 09:00 and 11:00 o’clock – the consoles are sold out in no time, no matter how large the contingent is. That’s why it’s best to log in directly to your Amazon Prime account – or sign up for a subscription* as soon as possible. Because as the just mentioned note describes, Prime members have priority over all other customers. Click here for the product pages:
According to several sources, among others “Games Wirtschaft”, there will be a PS5 sales promotion at Media Markt* and Saturn* today – but stationary. It’s not clear how many stores are involved in the Playstation 5 promotion. The contingent is also supposed to be smaller than in comparable campaigns in September, October and December.
If you manage to get on one of the waiting lists, you will probably get this offer: The PlayStation 5 with drive including game of your choice (“FIFA 22” or “Call of Duty Vanguard”). This includes an extra controller in Cosmic Red. Cost: 639,99 Euro (100,00 Euro). Delivery is scheduled for the beginning of February.
Otherwise, it is still keep your eyes open at the remaining retailers:
Finally something moves at Amazon* in the matter of PS5 again. Since the start of the week, the mail order giant has a new Playstation 5 bundle on its site. It’s the coveted console including a game – the action adventure “Horizon: Forbidden West. Although this will not be released until 18. February, but it’s possible that you can order the bundle in advance and that the package will be delivered later.
But that’s about it for the good news. The gap between now and the last PS5 drops at the major retailers is getting bigger and bigger, and so far there are no fresh hints of sales promotions coming soon. We remind you once again about the recent news around Media Markt* and Saturn*: “pcgameshardware.de” wants to have learned from company circles that there will be no more Playstation 5 to buy at both retailers in January. There was also talk of a request to partner companies not to refer to PS5 sales promotions in the future. It’s clear that speculations about a general sales stop of the console made the rounds at the retailers.
We advise you, as always, to keep your eyes open. To make it especially easy for you, it’s best to save the product pages of the most important retailers and check back here every morning. From experience, the drops are unlocked early in the morning and are sold out very quickly. Here you belangt to the product pages:
Can one hope at the end of this January week again for a Playstation 5 drop? Currently, Friday seems to start just as disappointing as yesterday’s Thursday. No retailer has yet given any indication of a sales promotion. Due to the past weeks, we advise you to keep an eye on Amazon*, Alternate*, Expert and Otto*.Finally something is moving again at Amazon in terms of the PS5. Since the start of the week, the mail-order giant has a new Playstation 5 bundle on its site. It concerns around the desired console inclusive a play – the Action Adventure “Horizon: Forbidden west”. Although this does not appear until 18. February, but it is possible that you can order the bundle in advance and the package will be shipped downstream.
Amazon currently has a special offer for a PS5 stand*, on which you can place the console horizontally. The accessories of Auarte costs you currently instead of 22.99 euros only 18.69 euros. So you save 19 percent.
Here’s the Playstation 5:
Playstation 5 supplies will probably not be available at Media Markt* and Saturn* in the near future. At least wants “pcgameshardware.de” have heard from company circles that there will be no PS5 available for purchase at retailers in January. In addition, there is said to have been a request to partner companies not to refer to PS5 sales promotions in the future. Interesting, after all Media Markt and Saturn offered more consoles than any other retailer last year. It remains to be seen whether this is a new procedure at Media Markt and Saturn – or whether the lack of drops is affecting all online stores.
Even though there are no statements from other retailers in this direction so far, we can’t look forward to any PS5 sales today either. We still recommend you to keep an eye on Amazon* in particular.
Who calls the Playstation 5 his own, draws many envious glances on itself. The popular gaming product from Sony is still hard to get hold of. So also on today’s 12. January. So far, the usual online stores such as Otto*, Amazon* and Media Markt* show no signs of dropping.
Who simply does not want to wait longer can of course somehow get a Playstation 5. A higher price must always be accepted, however. Consoles are offered on Ebay* on a daily basis. The important thing here is that you don’t buy used equipment and ideally pay for it on the spot at the private dealer first.
You can also often get the PS5 in a Tafrif bundle from providers like O2. As soon as such bundles are available again, we will inform you.
How much money would you pay for a Playstation 5?? If your answer is about 900.00 euros, you will find at many retailers. The ‘cheapest’ offers can be found on Ebay: There you pay ‘only’ 739.99 euros for a Playstation 5 with drive.* However, we can not recommend this approach even to those who have the necessary small change. It’s best to buy the PS5 exclusively new and in its original packaging from reputable stores. However, if you do decide to buy a console on Ebay, there are a few things to keep in mind: make sure your Playstation 5 is new, pick up the console in person (if possible), and only pay on the spot after you’ve had a chance to inspect the device.
Those with a little more patience can probably look forward to an official PS5 bundle soon. Since on 18. February “Horizon: Forbidden West “* and on 04. March “Gran Turismo 7″* will be released, we expect an attractive combination of console and game – as already in June 2020 with the “Ratchet& Clank: Rift Apart” package. Maybe we can even expect a first PS5 special model with faceplates in the look of a game! Until then, it’s: Wait and see and keep checking back with different retailers, because the next PS5 drop is coming for sure.
The holidays and the first week of New Year is behind us. Those who couldn’t get hold of a Playstation 5 before Christmas should hope for fresh drops at various retailers now at the latest. So where can you expect the sale of the popular Playstation 5 console most likely from now on? Now that all retailers – from Otto* to Amazon* to Euronics* and Media Markt* – have had their last sales promotions some time ago, we can look positively into the future: It could be anytime now at all of them. As always, this is also the bad news. Keeping track of so many stores is simply exhausting. As you know, we keep an eye on all online stores every day – and keep you up to date on new drops. For today it looks unfortunately rather meow. Let’s hope that tomorrow Tuesday will bring more.
Since we can’t expect a PS5 drop today either, it’s worth thinking about alternatives to the big online stores and the pre-order promotions from Media Markt and Saturn. We are talking about supermarkets! These have been offering consumer electronics for years – including the Playstation 4, Xbox Series S or games and accessories for various consoles. So far, the Playstation 5 was available in the online stores of Aldi, Lidl and Co. not listed, but apparently you could pre-order them at the end of 2021 in Real stores. So it can be worthwhile to check every now and then if you can buy the Playstation 5 at Aldi, Lidl*, Real or other supermarkets.
And although there is no news about the Playstation 5 today, we still have exciting news about the console for you! Sony has introduced a new virtual reality system that will be specially adapted to the PS5. Find all the info on Playstation VR2 here:
Nothing new to report on the PS5 front today. Therefore it is called quite simply: wait. And look forward to Playstation 5 accessories becoming available in January:
- DualSense controller in Nova Pink*
- DualSense controller in Starlight Blue*
In addition, some exciting game highlights will be released in 2022 – among other things, of course, for the Playstation 5! Here you can find our favorites:
Otherwise, it can of course always be worthwhile to regularly check the PS5 product pages of these stores – perhaps individual consoles or bundles will be unlocked and you can strike directly:
January can come up with some highlights around the Playstation 5! So you can buy on 14. January get a new DualSense controller in Nova Pink* or Starlight Blue*. On 21. You’ll have the chance to buy an official console cover (called a faceplate) in Midnight Black or Cosmic Red on January 28, 2022, and get your copy on January 28, 2022. Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves” will be released in the PS5-optimized version on January 14.*
To be able to use these accessories, you will of course need a Playstation 5. Since tomorrow, Thursday, is a holiday in some states, Friday is a bridge day and the first week of January is basically quiet, we do not expect a PS5 drop this week. However, you can still stop by Expert and Gamestop and get put on a waiting list if necessary.
And even if it doesn’t help you in the arduous endeavor of grabbing a Playstation 5, we’ve got news that’s sure to put you in a good mood. Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal has come up with a big surprise for some elementary school kids in Georgia (USA): He just gave away 1000 Nintendo Switch consoles, 1000 PS5 consoles and some bikes. A great promotion!
Amazon UK already has the infamous Prime spoiler on the product page of the Playstation 5. Whether this means that there will soon be the second drop in a few days in the UK, or whether the spoiler will no longer announce a sale at all, but will be seen permanently from now on, remains to be seen.
Either way: In Germany, we probably can’t expect a PS5 drop at Amazon or other major retailers this week. Although Alternate was able to sell some PS5 bundles for 1009.00 euros last night, Sony is basically still in the winter break in this country and probably starts the distribution of the consoles only next week.
What you can do today to get a Playstation 5 as soon as possible? Go by your local Expert or Gamestop store and ask if there’s a waiting list you can get on, and of course check the PS5 product pages of the major stores regularly to make sure you don’t miss a spontaneous drop:
Happy New Year to all Playstation fans! With the PS5 drops from Amazon and Euronics we could close 2021 on the Playstation front positively – but in the first week of January it looks unfortunately rather lukewarm. Since even the major retailers are supplied with the coveted consoles only about once a month, and the gaming industry must also first arrive in the new year, we expect only from the 10. January with new drops.
But you never know if a PS5 contingent will be released spontaneously! So you should definitely keep an eye on the product pages of the big stores and also ask in the stationary trade if there is a pre-order promotion at Media Markt, Saturn, Gamestop or Expert again.
At these retailers you can grab the Playstation 5 with a little luck:
Even on the last day of the year it is rather unlikely that you can still buy a Playstation 5 somewhere. That’s no reason to bury your head in the sand, though, as Noah Struthoff of “In Game” reports that Expert has just received a new shipment of more than 2300 consoles, which should be ready for sale as early as next week. This was revealed to him by a reader who works for a shipping company that supplies Expert. So we recommend you to regularly check this product page at Expert for a new drop from now on. Otherwise, let’s hope that the situation will calm down in 2022, so that in the new year all those who have gone empty-handed so far can finally buy a PS5. So that 2022 will be better!
If you were able to get your hands on a Playstation 5 at Euronics yesterday, you can consider yourself lucky, because just one day later, things are already looking bad again for PS5 buyers. Currently there are no (reasonable) offers for the coveted console. When the next drop will follow remains unclear. However, an overview of the site “Gameswirtschaft” helps. Here’s how the gaming website’s team kept list of when the PS5 was available at different retailers in the past:
- Euronics: yesterday (after 40 days break)
- Amazon: day before yesterday (after 62 days break)
- Alternate: last week (small quantity)
- Muller: last week (after 32 days break)
- Otto: two weeks ago
- Media Market: two weeks ago (store pre-order promotion on 17. December 2021)
- Saturn: two weeks ago (store pre-order campaign on 17. December 2021)
- Medimax: seven weeks ago
- Smyths Toys: two months ago
- MyToys: two months ago (small amount)
- Expert: two and a half months ago (PS5 waiting list in some stores)
- Cyberportfour and a half months ago
- Computeruniverse: five months ago
- Baur: five and a half months ago
- GameStop : seven and a half months ago ( pre-order campaign and waiting lists in many branches )
The list from “Gameswirtschaft” shows that the PS5 has been available at different retailers every week and that most retailers have four to seven weeks between drops. This could mean that you could expect the PS5 back on Amazon from the end of January, for example. We’ll stay tuned for you and inform you as soon as we hear about new supplies!
A post-Christmas miracle? At Euronics, the PS5 was finally available again today. After the servers of the store were overloaded due to the high demand in the morning, there was briefly again the possibility to register for the queue. But in the meantime the contingent is exhausted. However, Euronics points out that new updates will be published on the website in the future. So it can be worthwhile to visit Euronics regularly or to add this page to your bookmarks*.
Today could finally be the day! At Amazon, the infamous notice has appeared that Prime members have priority access to the Playstation 5. In the past, this was the indicator for an imminent drop. For you, this means: Make sure to sign up for a Prime membership*, put the Playstation 5 on your wish list and keep an extra close eye on the product page this (and possibly tomorrow) morning!
Important: You have to be patient with Amazon drops. The big rush on the product page of the PS5 has regularly led to technical problems and error messages in the past – especially within the Amazon app. Do not let this deter you!
Click here to go directly to the Playstation 5 at Amazon:
Even after the Christmas holidays, the Playstation 5 remains mostly sold out. There are currently no hints about new drops. However, both Media Markt and Saturn report in their stores that the console is “soon available again”. What exactly this means, however, remains unclear. If you absolutely still want to buy a PS5 now, you’ll have to resort to one of the overpriced offers from stores like Kaufland, Ebay or Catch. Cost: up to 900,00 Euro. Alternatively, you can also buy a PS5 bundle on online marketplaces like Facebook Marketplace, Ebay Kleinanzeigen and Co. Search for used devices.
Merry Christmas to all PS5 fans! We hope that as many of you as possible have a Playstation 5 under the Christmas tree tonight. Otherwise we keep our fingers crossed that you will be able to get your hands on a console soon. Today it looks bad on the PS5 front – a drop is not to be expected.
But there is still a chance for the Playstation 5 (even if it’s a very small one): Because behind the 24. A PS5 bundle is hidden in the second door of the Netzwelt advent calendar. Who knows, maybe you will be lucky!
It actually happened, Amazon* had the Playstation 5 on sale this Thursday. However, not as we expected. The PS5 could only be purchased as a warehouse deal – and the contingent was apparently not very large either. Who still hopes for a console, will be disappointed. The drop is already over.
Warehouse deals are products that don’t have any quality defects, but they are usually remaining stock or returned goods. In this case, the packaging of the Playstation 5 was defective. In case of a warehouse deal you can always count on a cheaper price as well. The catch: The manufacturer’s warranty is no longer valid. The good thing: Amazon tops it up with a two-year warranty.
On the normal PS5 product pages* it still looks lukewarm at Amazon. There is no hint of an imminent drop in sight. You actually have better chances in the stationary trade these days. If you’re still motivated and have the energy this year, you can sign up for a waiting list at GameStop and Expert.
Amazon UK as well as Amazon France have launched the Playstation 5 sale shortly before Christmas. Traditionally, you can count on Germany to follow suit with a PS5 drop shortly after the UK and France – actually. Because so far nothing is happening on the product pages of the mail order giant. The “Prime members have priority access to the PlayStation 5” notice that regularly appears on PS5 product pages shortly before a sale has yet to surface – so it remains exciting. In the meantime we’ve been waiting for almost two months since Amazon Germany released the last PS5 contingent*. Fans have never had to wait this long for a chance since the console’s release. Click here to go directly to the product pages:
Also at Otto*, Euronics* and Alternate* it could be every Monet so far. So it’s best to check back here from time to time as well. Traditionally all retailers release their contingents in the early hours of the morning. So if you want to store successfully, you should set yourself an alarm clock.
Finally something happens again in the matter of PS5. So shortly before Christmas Muller now had the Sony console on sale. You can get both the Digital Edition and the Playstation 5 with drive if you have been patient enough to queue up in the digital waiting room of the online store. The bad news: The contingent was already unlocked at 08:30, meanwhile all devices are sold out.
There is also news at Alternate. A new bundle has been added to the retailer’s online store. Here you can get the Playstation 5 with the games “Dirt 5”, “Riders Republic” and an Epos H3Pro Hybrid Headset. Cost: 969,00 Euro. However, “item cannot be sold at the moment” is currently stated for the XXL bundle. Here it is advisable to look at the product page from time to time, so as not to miss out on an unlocked contingent.
And now to the great hope Amazon*: Even today, three days before Christmas Eve, it looks so far meow. The product pages around the PS5 lie fallow at the mail order giant. As always, our advice is to grab an Amazon Prime membership* before the next PS5 drop to be preempted in the event of a sale.
In a few days it will be Christmas. So if you couldn’t get your hands on a Playstation 5 in the last few weeks, you can’t expect a console gift under the Christmas tree. However, considering that the PS5 is probably one of the hardest devices to get hold of, confirmation of a delivery in the next few weeks should be gift enough. That’s why you should keep an eye on the PS5 product pages of the retailers in the days before Christmas Eve! Especially Amazon* is in the focus of the fans of the popular Sony console. After all, the mail-order giant has been keeping us all on tenterhooks for more than a month now. Click here to go directly to the product pages for the digital version and the device with drive:
To increase your chances, you should also take out an Amazon Prime membership* in advance. Members always have priority when it comes to the Playstation 5 contingent.
If you have time, you should now make your way to the Media Markt and/or Saturn near you. Because it is rumored that another PS5 pre-order campaign could take place there. The pickup of the console would be in early January and not in time for Christmas, but a few more days of anticipation can not hurt either. There is no official confirmation of a PS5 promotion, but it’s worth a try. And: first come, first served! In the past, the contingents were already sold out very quickly – so you should hurry up.
Especially if you are not one of those who could order a Playstation 5 yesterday at Media Markt*, Saturn* or Otto*. With a bit of luck, you will get your PS5 before the holidays. Congratulations!
Meanwhile, the online drop hopes rest again today on Amazon. After other retailers were obviously supplied with consoles, the mail order giant is now really overdue. So, once again, sign up for a Prime membership* and keep an eye on the product page*.

Now you have to react quickly! After Media Markt and Saturn were able to unlock a small Playstation 5 contingent last Friday, it’s about to continue. At Media Markt* and Saturn* you can get the popular console from Sony right now. As always with a PS5 drop, the devices should be sold out within a few minutes or even seconds. So if you really want to get your hands on a Playstation 5, you should strike now without hesitation.
In case you were too late this time as well. Don’t worry, the next drop will come soon.
It seems to be a good week for all PS5 fans. After you could pre-order consoles at Gamestop on Monday, there was a sale at Playstation Direct yesterday and two PS5 bundles were available at Otto* for a few minutes this morning, many of you had the chance to get your hands on a console. If you are not one of the lucky ones yet, don’t worry, the next drop will come for sure!
For example at Euronics* or Amazon*. Rumors were already circulating yesterday that a PS5 sale could be coming up at Euronics. This led to an overload of the online store, whereupon the retailer had to clarify that no Playstation 5 would be sold yesterday. But who knows, maybe it will be in the next few days. And also Amazon seems to get some movement – at least in the UK. There customers could finally order a Playstation 5 again on Wednesday. Since we in Germany have been waiting for an Amazon drop since the end of October, this could be a good sign. There are still no concrete indications when a PS5 drop might happen at Amazon, but you should keep an eye on the product pages in the next days!
Click here to go directly to the Playstation 5 at various stores:
Now it is called very quickly react! After Media Markt and Saturn were able to unlock a small Playstation 5 contingent last Friday, it’s now the turn of Playstation Direct. There you get the popular console from Sony right now! As always with a PS5 drop, the units are likely to sell out within a few minutes or even seconds. So if you really want to get your hands on a Playstation 5, you should strike now without hesitation.
If you were too late this time too. Don’t worry, the next drop is sure to come.
As of 09:00 today, some Playstation fans were finally able to secure themselves a PS5. The exclusive pre-order promotion will run until 11:00 a.m. – whether there will be a public sale again afterwards? You can only find out by checking out Playstation Direct in time! If so, you’ll definitely get your Playstation 5 before Christmas, because the shipping is supposed to take place within five working days.
You’re not one of the lucky new PS5 owners, but you’re desperate to have a console under your Christmas tree? Then you can also buy the Playstation 5 on Ebay and you’ll surely get it in time before the presents – but you’ll need the necessary change for that. Because at Ebay you pay for the standard edition with drive proud 798.99 euros.*
Otherwise, the following still applies: Check out these stores regularly to avoid missing a spontaneous PS5 drop!
Yesterday, PS5 fans all over Germany had the opportunity to pre-order one of the coveted consoles in a GameStop store. And if nothing goes wrong, they can pick up the Playstation before Christmas! For you, that means you should definitely make a trip to your nearest GameStop today – maybe you’ll get lucky and there’s still a console or two up for grabs.
Unfortunately, however, there is no sign of a PS5 drop at Amazon today either. However, you can never rule out a spontaneous action, so as always, keep your eyes open and sign up for a Prime membership.*
Especially important for those who want to get hold of a Playstation 5, however, is tomorrow, Wednesday. Because from 09:00 clock rises at Playstation Direct the 3. PS5 drop since the beginning of November. If you are one of those who got an email invitation, we want to congratulate you at this point! If you’re not one of the chosen ones, you shouldn’t hang your head though, because last time there was a public sale at Playstation Direct right after the exclusive pre-order round! So be sure to check out the product page from 09:00 onwards to make sure you don’t miss a possible public drop.
Finally it has dropped again. After weeks of waiting, both Media Markt* and Saturn* unlocked a small Playstation 5 contingent last Friday. However, nothing has happened with the remaining retailers. Accordingly, the chances are increasing day by day that the PS5 will soon be available again at Otto*, Euronics* or Amazon*.
The hopes are above all on Amazon*. At the mail-order giant there was no decent PS5 drop for the longest time. For a further delay, however, speaks that the expected Playstation 5 sales at Amazon UK has not yet taken place. So it remains exciting.
In the case of Amazon* you should have done one thing already before a possible drop. Get a Prime subscription urgently*. Because only with a membership you have a real chance to get a PS5. Subscribers are always preferred by Amazon in the allocation of consoles namely.
Christmas is exactly two weeks away, and unfortunately it looks like many Playstation fans will have to do without the PS5 under the tree. In December there was only one – quite small – PS5 drop at Media Markt and Saturn, the other wholesalers were last supplied with the Playstation 5 over three weeks ago. Amazon in particular stands out here, of course, because the mail-order giant has been offering the PS5 for 42 days (!) none of the consoles sold more.
But today we still have good news for you! Because with E like simply you can secure yourselves the Playstation 5 in connection with an electricity tariff.* You will get the console in the new year and not in time for Christmas, but at least you will have it in your hands soon.
The offer of E as simple at a glance:
In addition, it can always be worthwhile to visit these stores regularly:
We don’t like to say it, but even this Thursday there are no signs of a Playstation 5 drop so far. Accordingly, we can only advise you to do what we have already advised you to do in the past weeks. Keep an eye out especially for the retailers who usually give away the most contingents. This includes Otto*, Media Markt*, Saturn*, Amazon* and Euronics*. For all stores, the last major drop was weeks ago, so it should be any moment now. Especially Amazon is currently a favorite, after all, the last sale of Playstation 5 consoles here was already more than a month ago. In the case of the mail-order giant, please make sure that you already have a completed Amazon Prime membership*, otherwise your chances of an actual sale are quite poor.
If you absolutely want to have the Playstation 5 under your Christmas tree, there are other ways to get the console. O2 is currently offering the PS5 in a rate bundle:

Playstation 5 sales have been idle for weeks now. Even the stores that actually have the most contingents of the rare console haven’t sold any since mid-November. Accordingly, it could soon be that way again at several retailers at the same time. The hot favorites are Otto*, Media Markt*, Saturn*, Amazon* and Euronics*.
If you want to give away a Playstation 5 for Christmas or hope to find one of the popular consoles under the Christmas tree yourself, you should keep a close eye on the retailer stores in the next few days. Finally, there has not been a major drop for several weeks at the usual suspects. Because Otto*, Media Markt*, Amazon* and Co. but their contingents usually release shortly after each other, we assume that in the next two weeks there will still be one or the other sales action coming up. There is no indication of a drop so far this Tuesday. However, we recommend you to keep a close eye on the following Playstation 5 product pages:
What about the Playstation 5 on St. Nicholas?? There hasn’t been a big online drop for weeks now. Amazon has meanwhile let almost 40 days pass without releasing a PS5 contingent. And consoles were also last sold at retailers such as Otto*, Media Markt* and Saturn* in mid-November. Only those who had the chance to sign up for one of the waiting lists during the recent sales campaigns in brick-and-mortar stores can look forward to getting their Playstation 5 soon.
If you want to increase your chances at the next Amazon drop, you should get an Amazon Prime subscription*. As a member you will be preferred to all other buyers. The very confident among you can also already set up a Playstation Plus subscription. Currently, you can get the 3-month membership including a wireless controller in Midnight Black* at a reduced price. Instead of 94.98 euros you pay 87.98 euros.
To increase your chances, keep checking these stores regularly:
On 3. December 2021, a few selected customers from the Playstation Network had the opportunity to buy the Playstation 5 via Playstation Direct. To access the Playstation Network, you must already own an older version of PS or have a subscription to PS Plus. Selected members (long-time members are supposedly given preference) will then receive a personalized link to buy the PS5 in a specific time slot – like the one on 3. December 2021 was the case.
If you didn’t get an invite to Playstation Direct, you can only speculate on new drops today. However, this is not very likely. Should you be willing to pay up to twice as much for the Playstation 5, you can also buy it from some sellers like Ebay, As Good As New or Kaufland. The best way to find the lowest price is to check Idealo*. Currently: 779.99 euro at Ebay*. It’s worth being quick, though, because even at this overpriced price, only three consoles are still available (as of 10:48 a.m.).
The impacts are getting closer: Amazon Spain, Amazon Italy and also Amazon-UK provided their customers with new Playstation 5 consoles in the past few days. For us, however, it remains quiet so far – even though we have been waiting here for several weeks, sometimes hopefully, sometimes impatiently, for a drop from the mail order giant. Since Amazon did not sell any PS5 consoles* on yesterday’s Wednesday – actually the typical day for a quota activation – we can only advise you for the rest of the week what we always advise you to do:
- Check out the Amazon product pages for the Playstation in the time between 08:00 and 11:00 o’clock increasingly
- Take out an Amazon Prime subscription in advance, because as a member you will be given priority when ordering

It is almost unbearable. For more than a month gamers have been waiting impatiently for Amazon to unlock its Playstation 5 contingent. There is talk of several thousand consoles. It remains unclear when the retail giant will drop the devices. One thing is certain: When the time comes, you have to act fast, because the consoles from Sony are sold out within a few seconds. To increase your chances of making a purchase, you should in any case be an Amazon Prime member. Because buyers with a Prime subscription* are preferred over the rest of the shop-willing crowd. You should also set an alarm clock. As a rule, the Playstation is unlocked between 08:00 and 11:00 in the morning. Click here to go to the product pages:
Black Friday and Cyber Monday are behind us. In the period from 26. until 29. November countless products were sold during the shopping days – but the Playstation 5 wasn’t one of them. However, there is reason to hope that it will now finally be soon at Amazon* again. We remember the last big shopping event before Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Shortly after Prime Day in June, PS5 fans could enjoy a large contingent at the retailer. So it could be any day now. To increase your chances of getting a Playstation 5 console from Amazon, there are a few things you can keep in mind, as always:
Make sure in advance that you take out an Amazon Prime subscription*. In the sale of the PS5 contingent Amazon prefers its members namely always. In addition, the drops take place according to experience between 08:00 and 11:00 clock. At this time you should refresh the Playstation 5 product pages in short intervals. In the past Amazon usually sold on a Wednesday, but we advise you to check daily from now on to increase your chances. Here you can find the different offers:
As you might expect, there were no Playstation 5 drops in retailers’ online stores over Black Friday last Friday and the following weekend. Only in stores of Media Markt* and Saturn* you can get the popular console for a down payment of 100.00 Euros. There should have been about 50 devices available per store.
What’s next for those who still couldn’t get hold of the console?? The next big hope is clearly on Amazon*. We assume that in the next few days the retailer’s contingent will be unlocked.
Also, to increase your chances, keep checking back regularly at these stores:
On today’s Black Friday, all retailers focus on discount promotions and exciting deals. If you were hoping to get a Playstation 5 offer in the process, you will be bitterly disappointed. Currently, none of the usual retailers (Otto*, Amazon*, Media Markt*, Saturn*) are offering a PS5 drop.
However, you might be lucky outside of the online trade – if you are fast. As “Games Wirtschaft” reports, this morning you have the opportunity to buy one of the popular Sony consoles in many stores of Media Markt and Saturn. Thereby you have to pay a deposit of 100,00 Euro. The offer is exclusively the Playstation 5 with drive, the digital edition is not included. You pay at least 549.00 euros. The pickup is supposed to start on 20. December will be possible.
Playstation 5 offers on Black Friday
You won’t get a PS5 at Amazon on Black Friday, but you can buy some games for the console at a lower price. Including “FIFA 22” for 49.99 euros instead of 79.99 euros.* You save a whole 38 percent.
Also today it looks like there will be no Playstation 5 consoles sold at Amazon* again. And that, although quite a lot had pointed to an imminent drop. For more than two weeks we’ve been waiting for Amazon to come around the corner with a new contingent, after several other retailers did so last week. The only thing we can recommend to you this Thursday is the PlayStation Plus membership*, which you can currently get with a discount of 33 percent on Amazon. Instead of 59,99 Euro you currently pay only 39,99 Euro for the 12-months-subscription.
We also found an interesting news at “Games Wirtschaft”. According to the readers of the magazine, you have the opportunity to pre-order a Playstation 5 in individual Saturn* stores. However, you can only find the reference to it at the store counter. Against a deposit of 100.00 euros you should get your console within a few days.
As always, sign up for a Prime membership* to increase your chances of winning a Playstation 5 on Amazon and keep checking back at these stores regularly (especially Amazon, of course):
You want to get hold of a Playstation 5 this week at the usual suspects (retailers)?? We estimate the chances of this to be rather low. From Media Markt* and Saturn* to Euronics* and Otto*, all retailers have had the popular console in their stores in the past few weeks. Thus, the next bigger drops might still be a while in coming.
Also at Amazon* it looks so far meau. We’ve been waiting impatiently for two weeks for the retailer to finally sell contingents again. But today’s Wednesday, which is traditionally the PS5 drop of the week at Amazon, doesn’t promise much good either. So far, the “Prime members have priority access to PlayStation 5” notice that appears before a sale on PS5 product pages is nowhere to be seen. But you get the PlayStation Plus membership* (12 months) for 39,99 Euro instead of 59,99 Euro at Amazon. This saves you 33 percent on the subscription.
There’s also good news at Alternate*: A new PS5 bundle has popped up in the store here. However, the price is not without. For 1009.00 Euros you get the Playstation 5 including an additional controller, the games “Ratchet&” and the “Ratchet” game Clank: Rift Apart” and “FIFA 22” as well as an EPOS H3PRO hybrid headset.
Currently, there is a lot to be said for an imminent Playstation 5 drop at Amazon*. For one, we’ve been waiting for a sale on Sony’s popular console on Amazon for a while now. On the other hand, the PS5 was available at several other retailers last week. This is how Media Markt* and Saturn* were able to sell larger quantities of the device. As a rule, contingents at other retailers also indicate an imminent drop at Amazon. Even though the rare console is unlikely to be offered as a bargain for Black Friday, it could be that Amazon is reserving a bigger drop for the popular discount day.
As always, it’s best to sign up for a Prime membership* to increase your chances of getting a Playstation 5 on Amazon. Also the note “Prime members have priority access to the PlayStation 5” on the PS5 product pages at Amazon is and remains a reliable indicator for an imminent drop.
After several retailers were supplied with consoles by Sony last week and immediately passed them on to gamers, it should get quieter about the Playstation 5 again in the coming days and weeks. Only Amazon* is theoretically still due in November – but what about a PS5 drop there?? Since other retailers in Germany have already been supplied with consoles and Amazon has started PS5 promotions in some European countries, the probability is very high that Amazon Germany already has Playstation 5 consoles in stock. It’s possible that the mail order giant is waiting for the right moment for a big drop and is stocking up until then to sell as many consoles as possible. With Black Friday and Cyber Monday, there are of course perfect opportunities to draw attention to yourself. We therefore assume that there will be a PS5 drop at Amazon this week.
Happy Birthday, Playstation 5! Exactly one year ago, on 19. November 2020, the first consoles were delivered to gamers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The bad news: even a year later, it’s extremely difficult to get your hands on a Playstation 5. The good news: In the last few days, there were always larger PS5 drops at various retailers such as Otto*, Media Markt* or Saturn*. Another one could follow shortly at Amazon*.
We also have some extra good news for you: Today, many retailers have rung in Black Week 2021, which means you can grab some bargains around the Playstation. So you get the annual membership for Playstation Plus at Amazon currently for only 39.99 euros.* Also the PS5 game “Ratchet& Clank: Rift Apart “* is currently available at this price. Alternatively, you can secure “Demon’s Souls” for 44.99 Euros*. And if you don’t want to wait any longer for the Playstation 5 and are willing to pay a significantly higher price for the console, you’ll find what you’re looking for on Ebay. There you can get the Digital Edition for 684.99 Euros.*
Despite the hint of an upcoming PS5 promotion, which can already be found on the Amazon product page of the Playstation 5* for just under a week, we have been waiting in vain for a drop from the online retailer so far. But we are still sure that it will happen soon! So be patient and prepare yourself as best you can by signing up for a Prime membership* and putting the Playstation 5 on your wish list. But maybe you were already able to get a console at Otto* this morning and don’t have to rely on an Amazon drop anymore. Because the Hamburg mail order company has offered around 09:30 clock two PS5 bundles, which were of course already sold out after a few minutes. We therefore advise you to create an account with the stores that are eligible for a Playstation 5 promotion now, to enter payment methods and to stay logged in to be able to react to a drop as quickly as possible.
At these retailers you have a chance to get the Playstation 5 and you can create an account:
Besides the numerous PS5 drops that have taken place in the last few days, there is another ray of hope: Sony wants to start building a chip factory in early 2022. The American technology portal “The Verge” reports that the company wants to have built a factory that produces chips, microcontrollers and sensors by 2024. Since 2024 seems to be a long time away for those who want to get their hands on the Playstation 5 as soon as possible, this is only a small consolation, but at least it’s better than nothing.
What you can do in the present to increase your chances of getting one of the coveted consoles? Regularly check the product pages of the above mentioned retailers and also visit the stores to ask for more information. Especially at Gamestop you might be lucky at the moment and at least get on a waiting list.
Hopefully you actually checked the Playstation 5 product pages regularly yesterday – because then you might soon be able to call yourself the proud owner of a PS5! Yesterday, Media Markt* and Saturn* had larger quantities of the console for sale. This morning, Muller followed suit and made a smaller contingent of Playstation 5 consoles available. You could not get hold of a PS5 at the drops? Don’t worry, we have some tips on how you can (hopefully) get your hands on it soon:
So our favorite for an online drop soon is still Amazon*. In the UK, it might already be today, as the product page there already showed a hint that only Prime members* will get access at first. And since about the same amount of time has passed since the last PS5 drop in Germany and the UK, we can continue to hope in this country as well.
Where we also see chances for a PS5 drop? In the local stores! Although Saturn and Media Markt have sold consoles online just yesterday, there could nevertheless soon be a reservation action in the stores again. And also in some Gamestop stores you still have chances to pre-order a PS5 bundle. So it is worth asking in any case!
To make sure you don’t miss out on any spontaneous Playstation 5 promotions, be sure to keep checking these product pages regularly:
There are always surprises in the PS5 world! This was the case again yesterday, as the Real department store chain offered Playstation 5 consoles on pre-sale nationwide. So make a quick trip to a Real near you today and ask if there are any units still available – maybe you’ll get lucky. The collection of the Playstation 5 at Real is then from 10. December 2021 possible. And it’s also said to be currently possible to pre-order a PS5 bundle at Gamestop – but of course only while stocks last.
That was not it with the good news, because Media Markt and Saturn have their systems after the hacker attack last week back under control and there are no more restrictions. This means that nothing more stands in the way of a PS5 drop! And also at Amazon we continue to suspect an imminent action. So be sure to check back at these stores regularly to make sure you don’t miss your chance to win the Playstation 5:
To start the new week, the hope remains for a PS5 drop on Amazon*. The note “Order a PlayStation 5 now, sold and shipped by Amazon, and get a PlayStation Now membership (1 month) for free with it.” can still be found on the console’s product pages, which suggests a sales promotion is imminent. So sign up for a Prime membership* and check Amazon regularly between 08:00 and 14:00. Our tip: If the Playstation 5 is available but you get an error message when adding it to your cart, you can first add the console to your wishlist and then add it to your cart from there. And even if you can’t continue the order, you should leave the PS5 in the shopping cart and update it regularly – maybe the purchase won’t work out for someone else and your copy will become available again.
As always, keep an eye on these retailers so you don’t miss a Playstation 5 drop:
Don’t forget that you can also get hold of the coveted console as part of a competition! Until the 28. November 2021 you can participate in the lottery of Sony and secure with a little luck also a PS5. All you have to do is watch the brand video for “Play Has No Limits” and look out for the 37 Easter Eggs for already released or announced titles. The Easter Eggs can always be seen when a blue frame appears around the video. And until 30. April 2022 Nestle is giving away 999 PS5 consoles in the Standard Edition. To enter, simply enter the winning code on the inside of the Lion or KitKat promotional packs on the Nestle Marketplace to find out if you’ve won.
Bad news for all Playstation fans: Sony will probably have to reduce the planned production quantities of the Playstation 5. According to the news service Bloomberg, the manufacturer of the PS5 can only produce 15 million units instead of 16 million consoles, and thus will not reach the target figures at the end of the fiscal year in March 2022. This should make it even more difficult to buy one of the coveted consoles.
Speaking of buying: A new hint of an upcoming drop has popped up on Amazon’s PS5 product pages! Since yesterday, you can read at the Standard Edition* and the Digital Edition*: “Order a PlayStation 5 sold and shipped by Amazon now and get a PlayStation Now membership (1 month) for free.”After a break of more than two weeks, a Playstation 5 drop at Amazon is probably imminent. If you haven’t already, you should therefore sign up for a Prime membership* now at the latest to preserve your chance of getting a PS5.
But also the other big retailers are eligible for a new PS5 promotion due to the long time since the last drop! So be sure to check back at these stores regularly:
This morning was the day: Although Playstation Direct only started in Germany on Monday, the first Playstation Network members could buy a PS5 directly from Sony today. But don’t panic if you haven’t received an invitation by mail from Sony yet – the next drop will come soon! And you can’t influence the selection of which members are contacted anyway. All you can do is log in to Playstation Direct with your PSN account. Note, however: There will surely be phishing mails that will look very similar to the real messages from Sony, so be careful! And if you’re one of the lucky ones who actually gets contacted by Sony, you should only ever access the invitation link using the same device and browser, otherwise you’ll run into problems in the ordering process.
In the free sale, the chances of a PS5 drop at Amazon are still the best. Yesterday, the Playstation 5 was already available in several European countries, so Germany will probably get its turn soon, too. Since the PS5 sales at Amazon have been exclusive to Prime members in the past, you should definitely get yourself a Prime membership* if you don’t have one yet. Keep an eye on the product pages for the Standard Edition* and the Digital Edition* in the next days – especially in the mornings.
And of course, it’s still worth checking the Playstation 5 product pages of these retailers regularly as well:
Amazon France already had a PS5 drop this morning – exclusively for Prime members. This increases the chances that consoles could become available again on Amazon in Germany in the next few days. Possibly even tomorrow or the day after tomorrow! Typically, the PS5 drop at Amazon takes place between 08:30 and 10:30 – so keeping an eye on the product pages might be worthwhile.
If you are not yet a Prime member, you should start the 30-day trial membership today* to increase your chances of getting a Playstation 5! Ideally you should already put the console on your wishlist, so you don’t have to search for it in the morning. Click here to go directly to the product pages of the Playstation 5 Standard Edition* and the Digital Edition*.
And even though a drop at Amazon seems most likely by now, you should check out the other retailers regularly as well:
With yesterday’s launch of Playstation Direct in Germany, at least another possible source for a Playstation 5 has been added. Although most of Sony’s consoles go directly to retailers and don’t stay with the manufacturer, you might be lucky enough to get your hands on a PS5 via Playstation Direct. To have a chance, you only need a PSN account, a credit card (only with this one you can pay for the Playstation) and a delivery address in Germany. Then you have to wait and hope that Sony will contact you about an order round. So these steps will (hopefully) lead you to a Playstation 5 directly via Sony:
- The basic requirement is a PSN account. You can log in to PlayStation Direct with these credentials.
- As soon as there is a PS5 contingent, Sony will send an e-mail to selected customers.
- The invitation email then includes instructions on how to get on the list of interested parties.
- Then you can order the PS5 within a given period of time – but only one console per household and only while stocks last.
Another way to get your hands on a Playstation 5 before Christmas is to hit the stores. Because there might still be some consoles in stock – due to returns or special items, for example. However, you should actually go to the stores and not just call, as you are much more likely to be turned away on the phone than on site.
And of course, it’s also worth continuing to check back at these stores regularly, as it’s been a while since the last PS5 drop, which suggests that consoles will soon be available again from one of the major online retailers!
If you haven’t had any luck buying a Playstation 5 so far, you can try a raffle! Currently you have the opportunity to win one of the coveted consoles. Until the 28. November 2021 you can participate in Sony’s Playstation sweepstakes and secure one of many interesting prizes – with a little luck also a PS5. All you have to do is watch the brand video for “Play Has No Limits” and look for the 37 Easter Eggs for already released or announced titles. The Easter Eggs can always be seen when a blue frame appears around the video. These are the prizes you can win:
1 to 10 Easter Eggs found
- 3x PS Plus for 3 months
- 3x PS Now for 3 months
11 to 20 Easter Eggs found
- 2x DualSense wireless controllers
- 2x PULSE 3D wireless headset
21 to 37 Easter Eggs found
Whoever finds this many Easter Eggs can win the perfect gaming package from Sony:
- Playstation 5
- OLED TV
- A7000 Dolby Atmos® Soundbar
- Noise cancelling headphones
- Xperia 1 III 5G smartphone
- 5 PS5 titles
- Accessory package
- hand-carved chessboard with PlayStation characters
Get your hands on a PS5 with the Nestle competition
Nestle also currently has a Playstation 5 to win. By the 30th. April 2022, the company is giving away 999 PS5 consoles in the standard edition. It’s easy to take part: simply enter the winning code on the inside of the Lion or KitKat promotional packs on the Nestle Marketplace and you’ll find out immediately whether you’ve won.
Buy the Playstation 5
Of course, the probability of getting the PS5 via a raffle is very low. But it’s worth a try, because even in the free sale it seems to be almost impossible to get the console. While Sony has launched its Playstation Direct factory sale in Germany today, even there only PS5 accessories and games are available for now. For this reason, it’s still a case of waiting and regularly checking out the sites of these retailers:
Statistically, the highest probability of an imminent PS5 drop is at Otto*, Euronics* and Alternate*, since the last sale of the console was some time ago – but Media Markt* and Saturn* could also offer store reservations again at any time.
Yesterday some Playstation fans could be happy, because Medimax spontaneously started at least a small PS5 drop. This, and the upcoming weekend, reduces the probability of a major Playstation 5 sale. You should still keep your eyes open, though, because stores like Alternate* and Amazon* could drop one at any time. And also at Saturn and Media Markt there is a small chance of a Playstation 5, because there are now and then remnants or cancellations, which you can get hold of locally – so also ask regularly at local retailers! Those willing to pay a higher price for the Playstation 5 can buy the console on Ebay. The Digital Edition costs 638.95 Euro* and the Standard Edition 724.99 Euro*.
It’s best to keep checking these stores to avoid missing a spontaneous PS5 drop:
Alternatively, there are still various rate bundles available, which you can use to get hold of the Playstation 5:
Slowly but surely we’re heading into the Christmas shopping season. If you want to give yourself or a loved one a Playstation 5 console for the holidays, however, you shouldn’t think you have the best chance – at least not when the popular console is available on the 24th of November. December should also be under the Christmas tree. There will certainly be a few promotions around the Sony console before Christmas, but it is not yet clear when and at which retailers.
Before it gets really Christmassy, there are three more promotion days to come. Singles’ Day, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. We have to take away your hope here as well. After all, these days are discount promotions. We dare to doubt that the already rare Playstation will be available at a lower price during these promotions.
As always, if there’s not a big drop in sight, we’d advise you to think about buying a PS5 in a bundled rate deal. Here is an overview:
We will make it short and sweet: You won’t be able to pick up a Playstation 5 in an online sale today, for better or worse. The usual suspects are staying quiet today as well, showing no signs of a PS5 drop anytime soon. Speaking of which: As soon as you see the note “Prime members have priority access to the PlayStation 5” on the Amazon product pages* of the popular console, you can strongly assume that there will be an allotment available at the retailer again shortly afterwards. Important for this is, as you can imagine, that you already have an Amazon Prime subscription. If you haven’t completed this yet, we advise you to do so promptly to be able to react as quickly as possible in case of a drop:
If you don’t want to wait any longer, you can alternatively look around at providers that sell the Playstation 5 in a bundle:
We’ll tell you the way it is: so far this Tuesday, it looks bad in terms of online drops of the popular Playstation 5. The console was last available for purchase at Amazon*. The most likely scenario, therefore, is that it will be available in other retailer stores next. We advise you to keep an eye on the product pages of Euronics* and Alternate*. Media Markt* and Saturn* are also likely to come up with a PS5 promotion again soon.
The Christmas shopping season is slowly approaching – and one thing should be clear: There will most likely be some Playstation 5 promotions. Unfortunately, this doesn’t make it any easier to predict the PS5 drops. At the start of November, there are no indications of major drops so far. We advise you to keep an eye on Amazon*, even though the popular console was only available for purchase from the retailer last week. Other hot candidates for an early drop are: Alternate*, Media Markt*, Saturn*, Euronics*.
Those who absolutely want to secure a Playstation 5 today can do so on Ebay. However, at a considerably higher price. The Standard Edition costs 714.90 Euros* and the Digital Edition 639.00 Euros on Ebay.* For those who (understandably) aren’t willing to spend that much money on the console, the Playstation 5 bundles from various mobile carriers are the best alternative.
The Playstation 5 bundles at a glance:
All details about the bundles and which one is worth it for you can be found here:
After Amazon* sold more Playstation 5 consoles yesterday (Wednesday) to everyone’s surprise, chances are pretty slim that there will be another drop this week. In the past, PS5 fans could often hope for Medimax on a Thursday. The retailer switched mostly on this day of the week its contingents three. Favorite time: 14:00. Since the last sale of the electronics market already took place at the beginning of September, the chances are slowly increasing here again.
And how does it look in terms of bundles? Currently, you have the opportunity to buy a Playstation 5 in a bundle with a new cell phone tariff or DSL contract – at Mobilcom Debitel* and 1&1*. You can also get the Playstation 5 Digital Edition at O2*.
No one would have expected this so quickly. In these minutes there is directly another Playstation 5 drop at Amazon* – and that only a few days after the last huge sale. This was indicated by the sentence “Prime members have priority access to the PlayStation 5” on the PS5 product page*. According to our experience, this only appears when the stock at the retailer is replenished again. Now it is time to strike!
Important: In order to buy a PlayStation 5 console, you should have a Prime subscription. Because as the above-mentioned reference suggests, Amazon Prime members are preferred in the console allocation.
Looking at the past drops, some retailers can be ruled out for this week with great certainty: You won’t be able to get hold of a Playstation 5 at Otto*, Amazon*, Media Markt* and Saturn*. For other online stores, however, the likelihood is increasing again with PS5 sales dating back a long time. Among them Alternate*, Euronics*, Cyberport* or even Muller.
Besides the classic Playstation 5 drops, you also have the chance to get one of the most popular consoles through bundle promotions every now and then. Often, the packages aren’t exactly cheap, but you get either games or gaming accessories like headsets in addition to the PS5. Especially the bundles at Alternate* are popular, unfortunately there are no new contingents for weeks here. We still advise you to keep an eye on the product pages of the retailer.
Yesterday, tariff bundles were still available at Media Markt*. The bundle including smartphone with contract is also already out of stock.
The past week was quite impressive. There have been both small and big drops – like the long-awaited Playstation 5 sale on Amazon*. Those who still weren’t lucky enough to be able to buy one of the popular consoles still have to keep their eyes open. After all the drops, it should soon be the turn of retailers who haven’t had a PS5 in their store for several weeks. Among them: Cyberport*, Alternate* and Euronics*.
There are also a few major game releases coming up, which has always been a good indicator for further PS5 drops. Among them the hotly anticipated launch of “Call of Duty Vanguard “*. In the course of this, there could be a PS5 promotion at various retailers. However, there are no concrete indications of upcoming drops here yet.
Where can I get the Playstation 5 today?
If you’re not one of the lucky ones who were able to secure a Playstation 5 on Amazon, you have the chance to buy it on Ebay today. However, the Standard Edition costs 714.90 Euros* and the Digital Edition 648.99 Euros*. You can also get the PS5 via Idealo at As Good As New – there you pay 774.00 Euro for the model with drive* and 714.00 Euro for the digital version*. Of course, these prices are much higher than the ones you pay at stores like Media Markt or Otto. So keep checking these sites regularly:
Can you buy the PS5 today?
Yesterday it was finally so far. At Amazon* Playstation 5 consoles were sold again. It might have been the biggest contingent since August and made a lot of PS5 fans happy. As always, however, the stock was out of stock in no time at all. In addition, there were often technical malfunctions that stood in the way of a purchase. This was certainly due to the overload of the Amazon server due to the massively high number of calls to the PS5 product pages*. The result: Purchases could not be completed, consoles were stuck in the shopping cart.
Others were lucky yesterday at Expert. The retailer opened the Playstation 5 doors already at 7:15 in the morning. Here, too, the contingent was quickly sold out.
No sales promotion has been announced for today’s Thursday yet. Now that Amazon is through with the PS5 sale for now, we recommend you focus on the product pages of other retailers in the next few days:
Buy Playstation 5 – today’s options
Hope returns. After a long time there is finally a signal from Amazon to interpret. Recently, “Prime members have priority access to the PlayStation 5” has appeared on the product pages of the Playstation 5 with drive* and the Playstation 5 in the digital edition*. In the past this always meant a PS5 sale in the near future.
The usual time window on Amazon for a drop is between 08:30 and 10:30 a.m. Important: To buy a Playstation 5 console, you must have a Prime subscription*. If you don’t already have the subscription, you should do so asap to increase your chances.
Our recommendation: Keep checking the product pages of the following stores regularly:
Buy Playstation 5: New drops?
Estimated 20.000 consoles will be delivered this month to buyers who have managed to register on the Playstation 5 waiting lists at Media Markt* and Saturn*. Aside from this nationwide promotion in retailer stores, there’s little to indicate an online drop anytime soon. Neither at Saturn and Media Markt nor at Amazon* – where recently the greatest hope was.
New: As “Games Wirtschaft” reports, the fashion mail-order company “Von Floerke” receives contingents again and again – apparently more continuously than, for example, Alternate* or even Cyberport*. That’s surprising, after all, it makes “Von Floerke” the only retailer outside the tech bubble that can get its hands on the coveted consoles.
Our recommendation: Keep checking the product pages of the following stores regularly:

Still no Amazon* drop, but there is good news from retailers. Saturn*, Media Markt* and also Expert and GameStop have opened Playstation 5 waiting lists again. Here you can get one of the popular consoles for a deposit within a few weeks. Should you make it onto one of the lists at all. If you still want to grab a place now, you should hurry, because many stores have already announced an admission stop.
There’s no question that Amazon* will be restocking and dropping PS5 consoles at some point in the near future. For this the last sale is simply too long ago. However, there are no concrete signs yet, when it can finally be so far. We therefore recommend: keep your eyes open and ideally check the product pages between 08:00 and 11:00:

It is to milk for mice! After almost 40 days without a Playstation 5 drop at Amazon and smaller sales at Media Markt*, Saturn* and Euronics* all hopes were pinned on today, Wednesday. Many had hoped for a PS5 drop on Amazon. Not without reason: after such a long time without consoles sold, this Wednesday – the usual day for a sale – would have fit well into the empirical values of the past months.
Instead, there is news from Amazon France. PS5 consoles are sold here in these minutes – but only to customers in Germany. However, this drop shows us one thing: The impacts are getting closer! Last year, increased stocks at our neighbors always meant that it would be time for us again a short time later. Therefore, keep an eye out, especially on Amazon*.
Buy Playstation 5 – Update 12. October 2021
For all those who have not yet been able to get hold of a Playstation 5, the current situation is becoming more and more strenuous. After drops at Media Markt*, Saturn* and Euronics*, it has just become quiet again about the popular console from Sony. The big hope is still on Amazon. Finally, there was a PS5 sale at Amazon France and Amazon UK some time ago, which always suggests an imminent drop in Germany.
Furthermore, it’s been over a month since Amazon* shined with a PS5 sales campaign. This actually does not do justice to the market status of the dealer. Accordingly, tomorrow, Wednesday, could actually be the day. The day of the week is the most common for a PS5 sale anyway. Our tip: Be sure to check out the product pages between 09:00 and 11:00. In this time slot Amazon drops the Playstation 5 consoles according to experience.

The Playstation 5 was last available at Saturn*, Media Markt*, Euronics* and even Alternate* can get hold of it. This week, the big hope is still on mail order giant Amazon*. After all, it’s been about a month since the last drop. It would be more than unusual if Amazon should have been the only retailer not to receive a PS5 contingent from Sony. Therefore, many speculate that Amazon will even start a particularly large sale in the coming days. As always, the most likely time to buy is Wednesday between 09:00 and 10:00. Don’t forget that buying the coveted Playstation 5 on Amazon* is reserved primarily for Prime members. It is worthwhile in this case so an Amazon Prime subscription*.
In addition to Amazon, Otto* has not had a Playstation 5 on offer for some time, which is why the look at the retailer in the coming days and weeks on also worthwhile.

With the launch of the EA game “FIFA 22” last week, many had hoped for associated Playstation 5 drops. Unfortunately, the big sales promotions failed to materialize. After our neighbors, Amazon UK and Amazon France, were supplied with consoles in the last two weeks, the chances are not bad, at least this week, that new drops will occur. Keep your eyes peeled especially at Amazon* and Alternate*.
Attention: Fake Facebook ads of an alleged GameStop store are currently going around. The PS5 should be available here. However, this advertisement is a fake offer. GameStop never sells the Playstation 5 in their online store, but only via waiting lists in their stores.

Experience shows that the Playstation 5* is available on Wednesdays at Amazon – should the retailer have secured one of the rare stock items.

Buy Playstation 5 – Update 28. September 2021

Buy Playstation 5 – Update 27. September 2021
On 1. October 2021 comes out the console game that many have been waiting for – FIFA22*. Because of this, you can assume that Sony will run some special promotions this week. Finally the drop of FIFA22* also means that the manufacturer wants to sell as many Playstation 5 consoles as possible. Because: To play the game, you need either a Playstation Plus subscription or a subscription to Xbox Live Gold. In turn, you can only treat yourself to these with one of the latest consoles.
We therefore strongly assume that you still have the chance to buy a Playstation 5 this week. Our favorite: Amazon. In recent weeks, there have been repeated sales via the retailer in other countries, such as France, Spain and also UK. According to our experience an action at Amazon Germany* is never far then. So be sure to check Amazon regularly this week, ideally in the morning hours.

Buy Playstation 5 – Update 21. September 2021
About two weeks ago, Playstation 5 fans were happy to see a special pre-order promotion at Media Markt and Saturn. Stores had received an amazingly large contingent of PS5 consoles from Sony and provided waiting lists for purchase. This drop leads willy-nilly to the fact that it will be more difficult to get hold of one of the popular consoles in the coming weeks or even months. Retailers that regularly had small contingents in stock did not announce a new sale in September yet.
Still, it’s worth checking in regularly with the usual suspects. After all, you can never be completely sure. We recommend you to check out the webshops especially in the early morning hours to increase your chances. Also, from experience, it’s common that retailers were able to stock up on their PS5 contingent during the first or last week of the month.
Buy Playstation 5 – Update 20. September 2021
According to experience, the chances of getting one of the rare PS5 drops increase in the first and the last week of the month. So theoretically, in the next few days, the probability of getting hold of a Playstation 5 increases again.
In the past few days, however, the pre-order promotion at Saturn* and Media Markt* has taken up a lot of space. Fans were able to get on waiting lists for a console at more than 400 stores. These are unusually large contingents. Sony’s delivery to the markets is said to be in the five-digit range. This could also result in fewer small drops to be found at other retailers in the near future.
You should still keep your eyes open and especially check the following stores regularly in the morning hours:
Buy Playstation 5 – Update 17. September 2021
Attempting to buy a Playstation 5 can lead to stress at times. Finally, the console has been out of stock for a long time and only here and there at vendors sometimes in stock. The rush for these rare drops is usually so big that many fans of the PS5 go empty-handed. Media Markt* and Saturn* now offer the possibility to get a Playstation in a more relaxed way.
This is a pre-order action. How it works: You can now get on a waiting list at many branches. This way you avoid the nerve-racking order via a webshop, where you are often left behind due to the high demand anyway. Once on said list, all you have to do now is wait to be on the train. Afterwards you can pick up the console in the market, as soon as it was delivered.
Buy Playstation 5 – Update 31. August 2021
Yesterday, Monday (30. August 2021), Media Markt* and Saturn* sold a large contingent of Playstation 5 consoles and bundles for several hours. It was probably the biggest drop so far this year. Therefore, numerous PS5 fans could be happy about a purchase. Others, however, had to accept a cancellation of their order. The dealers probably cancelled multiple orders quite rigorously from the system. Many consoles were also stuck in the shopping cart.
Buy Playstation 5 – Update 30. August 2021
The Playstation 5 supply at online retailer Alternate* has never been particularly large, but it has been consistent. Fans of the PS5 could rely on regular drops for weeks. It is noticeable that this was not the case in the past weeks. That’s why there is currently speculation whether new consoles will be listed at Alternate this week. We therefore recommend: If you’re still looking for a Playstation 5, you should keep your eyes open in the coming days and regularly check Alternate*.
