It was supposed to end on December 22, but has been extended to February 28, 2023, meaning you can still buy a PS5 without any problems. Wait times vary, but PlayStation Direct is one of the fastest providers right now, along with Amazon, MediaMarkt, and Saturn. So don’t go wrong by ordering here.

- PS5 with hard drive on PlayStation Direct
- PS5 Disc Edition bundled with MW2 on PlayStation Direct
What about restocking? On PlayStation Direct PS5 bundled MW2 has been available for several weeks now. Recently added “naked” console. Prior to that, it had long been possible to order the official God of War bundle (with the PS5 Digital Edition or with the disc version) – also for weeks and, in principle, without a break.

Until the end of February, we do not expect a shortage and think that perhaps other official packages or even a purely digital edition will be offered. In short, if you’re looking for a PS5 bundle or just a bare metal console, January’s PlayStation Direct is one of the best places to go.
