Quickly! The PS5 is here, but not for long

The PS5 was released over a year and a half ago now, but it’s still just as complicated to get your hands on one. Fortunately, it seems that restocking is happening more and more often and it’s honestly a pleasure! If you are reading these lines, it means that we have just detected stock and we immediately invite you to click on the orange link below so as not to miss it.

The PS5 is finally back in stock. But will it last?

If you are reading this article, you are probably one of those waiting to find Sony’s console in stores.

If so, don’t waste a minute because we just received a back in stock alert, and it may not last more than a few minutes.

The shortage affects the world of technology just as much. Even if we start to find graphics cards at prices very close to their MSRP (price announced by the manufacturer), they remain quite rare and it is the same thing on the side of consoles and especially the PlayStation 5.

So we’re finding stock more and more often, but it’s still rare to get it at the launch price. Similarly, most of the time the console is sold in bundles with controllers and one or even several games.

The problem mainly stems from the difficulty of manufacturers in obtaining supplies of semiconductors, an essential element for the production of electronic components. They are found in consoles like the PS5 as well as in computer or even automotive components.

They are very complicated to manufacture and have been heavily affected by the factory closures related to Covid. On the other hand, the demand has never stopped increasing, on the contrary. Result: prices rose exponentially.

And with the international crises, the increases in the price of raw materials and energy, we are not yet ready to really return to normal for some time.

Even if the indicators are now green, with ever-increasing resupply, we still cannot expect a real exit from this crisis before a good time, at least 2024 according to some analysts.

Of course, it is always possible to obtain a PS5 throughout the year. The deficit is not total. Many private sellers, more or less reliable, offer both versions of the console. On the other hand, you will have to make a big sacrifice at least on its price.

A quick reminder: two basic versions of the PS5 exist at the following prices:

  • The digital version which is around 400 €
  • The version with disc player worth about 500 €

You should also know that a large number of PS5 buyers chose to buy as many PS5s as possible upon release to encourage this shortage and thus afford to resell them at much higher prices. These are “scalpers” and even though this process is not illegal, we honestly do not consider the practice to be ethical for once and we do not want to promote it.

That’s why we prefer to redirect you to serious sellers, known to everyone, and when we find stock from a third-party seller, we take the time to check the ratings and reviews about them. We cordially invite you to do the same so as not to be fooled.

Buying from a seller with good ratings will always be better than just getting lucky on a dodgy website where you might not have your console and have trouble getting your money back.
