Message of May 9, 2022 (9 a.m.): It will be exciting tomorrow, Tuesday: that’s when the Sony Group will announce the turnover and sales figures for the past season (April 2021 to March 2022) – including an outlook for the current year. . It can be assumed that the chip crisis and the container ship traffic jams in front of Asian ports will continue to have a massive impact on delivery volumes.

Sony had already announced a production cut for the first quarter of this year, which can be traced back to almost 1:1 in our drop statistics. Because between January and March it was incredibly difficult to get hold of a PlayStation 5 – only in April did the quantities increase again measurably in the last third of the month.

If you don’t own a PlayStation 5 yet, you still need a lot of luck and patience to get your hands on the game console. Proof 1: In May, which was already a few days ago, Amazon* was the only retailer to sell larger quantities.

We assume that we will experience rarer declines with less goods in May – also because, among other things, the effects related to the lockdown on logistics in Asia have not been factored into the most recent declines. Because the console, which was handed over or delivered at the end of April, rolled off the assembly line in February or March. Everything that is now sold in May, on the other hand, comes from the April batches.

During the presentation of Sony’s balance sheet tomorrow, there will certainly be very precise information on this subject, as to the number of consoles to be expected in the second quarter (April to June) and by the end of the year.

Among our readers’ favorite PS5 retailers is Amazon – for reasons. Because there have been almost no cancellations in the last year and a half – technical problems when accessing the website and the application occur during a drop, but they are limited.

If you’re speculating on an Amazon PS5, there are two important tips. First: Always sign in with a Prime account (free trial*) – nothing works without Prime. Second: make sure you take the opportunity to put the console on the watch and wish list:

The number of PS5 consoles originally packaged on Ebay* is still quite high: The level is nearly 800 coins. According to our statistics, the rates have fallen slightly in recent days, which is due to the greater “competition”. The “bare console” was sometimes sold for less than €700, but the total price including the game pack was more in the region of €750. The Digital Edition hovers between €550 and €600, which is still a substantial premium over the RRP – which is also due to the fact that the model wasn’t available at all for a long time. Less than 20 devices are currently on display on Ebay.
