PLAYSTATION 5. Having seen the PS5 in various retailers this week, we may see an improvement for console buyers. We are taking inventory.
[Mis à jour le 18 mars 2022 à 10h46] After the release in November 2020, the PS5 is hard to find in stores and online. The situation is largely related to the coronavirus pandemic, which has greatly affected the electronic chip market. As a result, the console is hard to find, and for buyers, this situation is synonymous with constant monitoring of console inventory. But it’s still possible to get a PS5, French retailers are benefiting from fairly regular restockings (or drops), especially in recent months.
Proof of this is that this Thursday we found the console in stock and in packages on Intermarché. Great news for the month of March, which continues on home consoles. We may indeed see some bright spots in the rather bleak next-gen console market, including the Xbox Series X. If you’re looking to get your hands on the console, you’ll need to make a quick purchase. To do this, we publish live the dynamics of the stock this week, as well as all our buying tips:
Our PS5 inventory update for Friday, March 18th:
10:30: The PS5 will go on sale in packs on Showroomprivé this Saturday, March 19th at 8am.
7:00 am: PS5 is long overdue. However, it can be found used and at a high price on the Rakuten website.
As you have already understood, more than ever, many buyers want to purchase a PlayStation 5. Therefore, it is necessary to know some tips to make a purchase safely and as quickly as possible. In fact, supplies are so limited that the first-come-first-served rule has become the rule for every restocking. You can explore some techniques and tips to optimize your time to complete your purchase as quickly as possible in the slideshow below. You will find 10 important tips for buying a PS5 on the Internet and in particular on some sites.
If getting a used PS5 is extremely difficult, you can still move on to buying used consoles. But beware, this is a very specific market due to the prices offered by resellers on sites like Rakuten. Indeed, the value of next generation consoles like the PS5 has never been higher due to their rarity. Therefore, it is not uncommon to find a new console for between 700 and 800 euros, although some offers may be more affordable. The original price of the console is 499.99 euros for the standard version and 399.99 euros for the digital version.
