PLAYSTATION 5. Still out of stock, the PS5 should soon return to a few specialist retailers in June.
According to several information available on the net, the restock of PS5 consoles is planned at CDiscount during the coming days. The e-commerce giant being a subsidiary of the Casino group, it is also a safe bet that stock is also offered in the brand’s hypermarkets and supermarkets.
If you want to prepare for these next PS5 drops, we strongly advise you to create a CDiscount / Casino customer account now, and fill in your details. You will then only have to proceed to the payment when the console returns to the sites in question.
The image has been around the web for several weeks now. There is a very sober pack that seems to have the PS5 console (in standard edition) and the latest Ratchet & Clank game: Rift Apart. This pack is available at the same time as the game’s release, on Friday June 11. Several photos of this bundle are already available on the web, in particular on the State of Play Twitter account which has managed to obtain the first images of the pack in question.
This pack was eagerly awaited by PlayStation fans. Obviously because of the cruel lack of stocks of the console in our regions, but also thanks to the excellent ratings of the game Ratchet & Clank in the specialized press. According to the various information that can be found on the net, this pack would be offered primarily in physical stores, then on the web if sufficient quantities are available. Its price would be around 579.99 euros, the price of the console with the game.
As stocks remain extremely low, the Micromania brand is currently giving priority to reservations already made on the console, then on its new console rental offer.
Large distribution stores like Carrefour and Auchan also have the PS5 + Ratchet and Clank pack. So do not hesitate to go to your nearest store and inquire with a specialist seller.

The rumor was already swelling at several specialist dealers, but this time the information comes from Sony. On May 10, the Bloomberg site indicated in its columns that the manufacturer of the Playstation 5 would have warned a group of analysts that the company will not be able to make up for the lack of stocks of the console by 2022:
“We have sold over 100 million copies of the Playstation 4 and, given the market and our reputation, I cannot imagine that current demand is slowing down quickly.”
This is difficult news for the (very) many players around the world who are still struggling to get their hands on a copy of the console. The PS5 is still very difficult to find today because of several factors that greatly slow down its production.
Quite complicated question, since the current COVID-19 pandemic is seriously affecting the production as well as the deliveries of the components necessary for the proper functioning of the PS5. However, the machine seems to be available in sufficient quantity on the Rakuten site, via several resellers (professionals or individuals). However, it is displayed at a price of 879.99 euros in its classic version, and 809 euros in its digital version. That is several hundred euros more than the standard prices, which respectively amount 499.99 euros for the classic version and 399.99 euros for the digital version. While this is obviously not the best price, these offers may still be suitable for those who can no longer wait for availability.
It is therefore difficult to get hold of the precious last-generation console from PlayStation. It is however possible to find from time to time some availability at certain resellers. As stocks remain extremely low, these availabilities unfortunately never last more than a few minutes … We will keep you informed if stocks return on certain merchant sites.
The PS5 is available at two different prices depending on the version you want. However, the latter can see their price vary greatly depending on their availability or the site on which you are.
- The PS5 – basic edition is the classic version of the PlayStation 5 console. It is notably equipped with an SSD disk which greatly reduces the loading times of your games. Its usual price is 499.99 euros.
- In addition to this, you need to know more about it.The PS5 – digital edition is a light version of the PlayStation 5 console. It does not have a built-in BluRay player. You will therefore only be able to buy your games in dematerialized form on this edition. Its usual price is 399.99 euros.
Note that apart from the BluRay player, the two versions of the PS5 are identical. Their major difference therefore comes from the presence of a BluRay player or not. It’s up to you to see if you are ready to do without games in physical format and all the associated advantages (possibility of exchanges, resale, purchase in second-hand format …).
If you are one of the lucky owners of PS5, you will surely be interested in some accessories, but also games to go with them! Less stock-outs to be expected on this side: the games and accessories reserved for the PS5 are quite easily found everywhere on the net as well as in specialized stores. However, pay attention to certain prices that can quickly change depending on the stocks.

If you don’t want to bother with the charging cables for your controllers, you might just fall for this official charging station. Capable of charging up to two controllers at the same time, it does not need to be plugged into your console to operate. This will allow you to free up the USB Type-C ports on your console for other uses.
Ideal for your online sessions, the PS5 wireless headset has a very comfortable design that will completely encompass your ears. You will be able to fully enjoy the sound environment of your games with its 3D audio system and its anti-background noise technology. Note that this headset is also compatible with PS4, PC and PSVR.
A console is not a console without its games and, for once, the Playstation 5 is launching on the market with a catalog that is enviable despite a very low number of exclusives. If other games are already to be expected (including Horizon 2), you can also count on non-exclusive licenses like the next Resident Evil.
