People talk a lot but the PS5 is still nowhere to be found. We must neither be absurdly reassured, nor panic people. Let’s be honest. According to our information and analysts in the field, no return to normal in stocks of PS5 is expected before 2024. There you have been warned.
This is explained quite well: the consoles called next-gen, the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X, came out in the midst of a great shortage of electronic components. This shortage has been made even worse by the COVID crisis and its consequences.
Two markets particularly appreciated by gamers are suffering the full brunt of this very tense situation: graphics cards … and obviously game consoles. That being said, do not be too pessimistic: many e-commerce sites regularly sell small stocks of PS5. Our job is also to monitor them closely and keep you informed as quickly as possible.
There is PS5 stock available NOW, no time to waste, stocks hardly ever last longer than 5 minutes!

You might be surprised by the expression ‘normal price’. If we take care to add this clarification, it’s because the PS5 is in fact available absolutely whenever you want … if you are ready. to pay a high price.
This phenomenon is caused by rather unscrupulous people, called scalpers. The goodwill of these people consists in surveying physical and virtual stores all day long and buying a maximum of PS5 while surfing the shortage.
Once the stocks are empty, all you have to do is play on the despair of consumers, especially parents at the approach of Christmas, to resell the precious console several hundred euros above its selling price. recommended by Sony and practiced everywhere else, ie 400 € for the PS5 Digital Ediition and 500 € for the classic version with a disc player.
Now that you are well aware of the practice, if, knowingly, you want to have your console as quickly as possible, we advise you to go through a reliable platform, full of third-party resellers (scalpers or not) : Rakuten. In general, you will find PS5s between 600 € and 800 €.
Either way, rather than giving your money away to scalpers, we strongly recommend that you wait for a return to stock at regular online merchants. As long as you don’t buy from a third-party reseller (like Amazon Marketplace for example), you won’t have any bad surprises and the console will be at its normal price.
The idea is to keep all of the tabs below open and monitor them closely.
To maximize your chances, you have to go further: open customer accounts with each of these big ecommerce sites and remember to enter your payment method. Whatever happens, you will need an account to checkout. Restockings only last a few minutes, every second counts. The time wasted creating an account and then paying is often decisive. Better, some merchants can even send you an alert in the event of a restocking!
It is also sometimes possible to have a PS5 by going to a physical store such as Micromania or Fnac. Some sell their PlayStation 5s as soon as they receive them and others do pre-orders: they then add you to a waiting list (often on payment of a deposit) and call you when they receive a PS5. This method also requires a lot of patience and finding a store that may have PlayStation 5s.
Finally, do not hesitate to follow our site. This news will be updated throughout the month. Our job is also to closely monitor each restocking, so you will be informed almost immediately. Courage, with determination and a little luck, it will eventually pass!
