PS5: where to find the Sony console? Actions of the week

PLAYSTATION 5. The PS5 is today the most popular console in France, despite limited stocks. Only a few French resellers benefit from the regular restocking that allows them to purchase the console. Our update on available stocks in early 2022.

Summary

[Mis à jour le 10 janvier 2022 à 15h21] If the Playstation 5 has been on the market for almost a year, it is still very difficult to get. Sony’s latest creation suffers greatly from a global shortage of microcomponents, which penalizes the supply of French resellers. However, some of the latter benefit from periodic replenishment and now more than ever it is possible to get hold of the console. In fact, the situation seems to be improving in early 2022, although the consensus points to a return to normal around 2023. Therefore, we find consoles quite regularly on CDiscount, Amazon, Micromania, Fnac and other resellers.

Our update on the inventory situation for Monday, January 10:

  • 11:51 am: No information on possible replacement at the moment, but the console is still for sale second-hand on Rakuten (around 700 euros compared to 500 euros of the original price)

A question that is still difficult to answer today. The Playstation 5 is certainly available, new or used, on the Rakuten site, for example. But beware, the console is sold well above its base price of € 399.99 for the Digital version and € 499.99 for the Standard version, a difference of up to more than 300 euros for new consoles. Offers that are far from offering the best price, but that will satisfy buyers looking to get the console immediately and without going through the waltz of the periodic resellers. In fact, to find the console at a normal price, you have to wait for it to be available from a dealer, and then show speed and a bit of luck to get a copy.

Also, it’s important to note that Amazon receives relatively regular refills and reserves them for its Amazon Prime members. If you haven’t signed up for the e-commerce giant’s subscription service, you can still take advantage of its 30-day free trial period. You can then add the console to your wish list and add it directly to your cart from this tab when stocks are available. This manipulation will not only save you time during your purchase (time is precious when the console is in stock), but it will also avoid the main page of the product, which could be overloaded with visitors.

Finally, console refills occur at specific times of the week. For example, it will always be very rare to find console restocking on weekends, except at private sales sites that usually offer it in “bundles” that include many other expensive items. To find a single console, you generally have to turn to classic resellers early / mid-week. Usually Wednesday is when things move the most in the market, so keep an eye on this page and social media to stay informed of a “down” as soon as possible.

If you are interested in the general situation of the home console market, especially waiting for a return to normal, know that the effects of the shortage of microcomponents should not dissipate before 2023. This is the opinion of the main microchip manufacturers Intel and AMD As AMD CTO Mark Papermaster said last November: “We expect a return to supply / demand balance by the end of 2022 in our markets.” You should know that the PS5 and its direct competitor, the Xbox Series X, are powered by an AMD processor. In order to return to a normal situation where the consoles are available online and in stores, we will have to wait until 2023 for now.

The Playstation 5 is undoubtedly at risk of winning the best gift category in early 2022. Sony’s console is still suffering from shortages and supply problems, a difficult situation given strong demand from French gamers. However, this year-end period is also the time for resellers to put the few available stocks up for sale. We must be attentive to these reruns. Also keep in mind that there are some tips to maximize your chances of getting a PS5. Our editorial team has prepared 10 to help you in your search for the console.

Note that, at the moment, the Xbox Series X seems easier to get than the Playstation 5. If you want to opt for the Microsoft console, we invite you to monitor its availability through this article.

It is confirmed that Sony has started the distribution of the new digital version of the Playstation 5. This new model has technical characteristics similar in all respects to the original model, except for its chassis that has been lightened. The new edition is 300 grams lighter than its predecessor. It should gradually replace the original PS5 on the shelves, depending on the state of stocks still suffering from the global shortage of microcomponents.

CDiscount, Casino, Veepee, Showroomprivé … Several specialized sites make new PS5 stocks available from time to time. However, the latter are quickly conquered by people eager to make a profit by selling the console. If you want to be better prepared for your next actions, here are some tips to prepare.

CDiscount is used to having its reruns available only to users who have the console on their wish list. To do this, go to this wishlist link with your CDiscount account and click on the little heart next to the PS5 packs that may interest you. As soon as the console is available, you can add it to your basket from your wish list, even if the latter will show sold out for some. Note that if the console does not appear, you will only have to update the page in a loop until you see it in stock.

As for other sites like Casino, Amazon or others, feel free to create an account for yourself and enter your bank details to be able to place an order very quickly. With this, you can buy the PS5 in just a few seconds during the next availability.

The rumor already inflated several specialized dealers, but this time the information comes from Sony. On May 10, the Bloomberg site indicated in its columns that the maker of the Playstation 5 would have warned a group of analysts that the company will not be able to compensate for the lack of inventory of the console by 2022:

“We have sold more than 100 million copies of the Playstation 4 and given the market and our reputation, I cannot imagine that current demand is slowing down rapidly.”

This is tough news for the (very) many gamers around the world still struggling to get their hands on a copy of the console. The PS5 is still very difficult to find today due to several factors that slow down its production a lot.

The PS5 is available at two different prices depending on the version you want. However, the latter can see their price vary a lot depending on their availability or the place where you are.

  • The PS5 – basic edition is the classic version of the PlayStation 5 console. In particular, it is equipped with an SSD disk that considerably reduces the loading times of your games. Its usual price is 499.99 euros.
  • ToThe PS5 – digital edition is a lightweight version of the PlayStation 5 console. It does not have a built-in BluRay player. Therefore, you will only be able to purchase your games in dematerialized form in this edition. Its usual price is 399.99 euros.

Note that apart from the BluRay player, the two versions of PS5 are identical. Therefore, its main difference comes from the presence or not of a BluRay player. You decide if you are prepared 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 PS5 owners, you will surely be interested in some accessories, but also games to go along with them! Fewer stockouts are expected on this side: games and accessories reserved for the PS5 are found quite easily everywhere on the net, as well as in specialized stores. However, pay attention to certain prices that can change quickly depending on the stock. Among the most popular accessories, we obviously find the PlayStation 5 controller, a charging station and other products for maximum gaming comfort.

The PS5’s DualSense can also be easily found online if you want to purchase a second controller for your multiplayer sessions. Here are some details of the exclusive PlayStation 5 controller:

  • Clickable touch panel
  • Bright LED that adapts to your games
  • USB type C connector
  • Ultra-precise vibrations
  • Integrated microphone and speaker
