Message of May 6, 2022 (9 a.m.): If no more big drop miracles happen today, then the first week of May will end with just one PS5 action – namely on Amazon.

The reason for this is that Sony Interactive very obviously only ships Europe at intervals of weeks – there’s no other way to explain that the PlayStation 5 is only available in a one-week window. week towards the end of the month. This applies to both the online store and fixed sales in retail stores.

An exception is PlayStation Direct, i.e. Sony Interactive’s online factory store. There were more PS5 promotions out there in April than ever before, namely exactly three. The retail trade looks at Sony’s activities with mixed feelings: like other brand manufacturers like Apple, Adidas or Nike, the PlayStation division also develops direct business with customers – and therefore without intermediaries.

Of course, the truth is that PS5 drops on PlayStation Direct are usually very small amounts. Nevertheless: the 1,000 units that Sony sends directly are of course “missing” at Müller, Medimax or Otto*. However, as the PlayStation maker has formulated very ambitious sales targets, it can be assumed that we will see a lot of PS5 releases there this year – possibly also some special exclusive models.

Amazon, among others, has caused confusion this week because the “main spoiler” is not always reliable as to whether there will actually be a drop or not. Currently this note (“Prime members have priority access to the PlayStation 5”) is dropped in only one package, namely the Horizon: Forbidden West* bundle. The spoiler is missing on the two “naked” models:

Still, we consistently recommend putting all three consoles on the wishlist and watchlist. It is and remains important to have a Prime account, which is free* for students and interns for the first six months.

What’s happening on Ebay*? The number of new consoles offered remains unchanged at around 780 pieces. The days of price caps seem to be over, as we have recently seen a downward trend in auction prices. The PS5 with player cost less than €700 at the counter, with the digital edition you have to calculate with €550 upwards.
