It looks like Sony will start selling the PS5 again in the coming hours. Prime members will get exclusive access.
The PS5 is leisurely approaching its first birthday. However, not all interested parties will be in a celebratory mood. Because the demand still significantly exceeds the supply. After smaller drops at several retailers, Amazon now also seems to start selling again. This is indicated by the retailer’s product entry, which once again promises an exclusive sale for Prime customers. You can secure a trial month here.
“Prime members have priority access to the PlayStation 5,” it says succinctly. After this notice was first displayed a few weeks ago, the sale of the PS5 started the following morning around 9 am. If Amazon sticks to this tactic again, there is a good chance that you will be one of the lucky PS5 owners tomorrow. But also today you should keep an eye on the product entries linked below for the PS5:

Insiders want to have learned that Amazon.de wants to put no less than 15,000 consoles on sale. Among them are said to be 10,000 copies with disc and 5,000 models in the Digital Edition. They cost 499.99 and 399.99 euros, respectively. The mail-order giant may also sell some of the coveted “Ratchet & Clank” bundles.

- Bundle PS5 + Spider-Man: Miles Morales
- PS5 dual lens
- PS5 accessories like 3D headset and charging station
When the situation will ease is written in the stars. Sony itself assumed a few months ago that the PS5 could be found more frequently at retailers in the second half of 2021. However, the demand is likely to increase again, especially in the run-up to Christmas, so that it is not likely that the PS5 can be ordered or bought in brick-and-mortar stores more or less without problems until 2022.
Gamers who want to buy an Xbox Series X will have a similar experience. It is usually sold out at Amazon and the like. Only the Xbox Series S, including the first price reduction, is usually freely available.

All new-gen consoles were launched in November 2020. While Sony regularly releases new sales figures, most recently in August, Microsoft sticks to its strategy of hiding them. In any case, the Xbox Game Pass is increasingly becoming the focus of the Redmond company’s business activities.
