stock expected this week at Amazon, Cdiscount or Fnac?

The PS5 is still hard to find, even 2 years after its release. The situation is improving, however, and to put the odds on your side, you can follow some tips to get the precious!

It’s a fact: Sony’s PS5 was released almost 2 years ago, and buying one is still very complicated. The Sony console has been the victim of the shortage of components after the health crisis, and it is a highly anticipated console, which succeeds the PS4 which is among Sony’s biggest sellers. There is therefore a huge demand and a supply that is struggling to meet it.

Fortunately, the situation is still improving. However, it remains very difficult to predict exactly the restocking periods of the different merchants: how many units are available? When are they posted? It depends on the sites and the stores, and there is still no better solution than to consult your sources frequently! However, some sites now offer an alternative.

PS5: it can be reserved on the Amazon site

On Amazon, buying the PS5 almost always resulted in a blank page. This is no longer the case: Amazon offers a button to request an invitation to order the console when it is available in stock. In order not to cause disproportionate waiting, Amazon nevertheless specifies that not all invitations will be satisfied, because here again, demand remains very high. However, with your Amazon account, you can request this invitation, and if it is accepted you will receive an email notifying you of the availability of a console that you can order.

PS5: our 4 tips for buying it when it’s in stock

The first thing to do to increase your chances of getting a PS5 in stock is to sign up for email alerts from the main merchant sites. It’s very simple and it allows you to be informed in case of availability. In this case, however, you will have to act quickly.

This is why it is important to put the console in the basket upstream if possible, because it saves precious seconds when ordering. Yes: the demand is so strong that it can be counted in seconds!

In the same idea, restocking often takes place in the morning and you must therefore be on the lookout at this time to increase your chances of finding a store that has stock. Responsiveness is again the key.

Finally, use a PC instead to try to place an order. Why ? Because a browser for PC makes it possible to refresh the page more quickly and with a keystroke!

Stock PS5: will the shortage stop?

Predicting the evolution of the PS5 shortage is difficult, as the situation depends on both demand, which is still very strong, and Sony’s production capacity, which remains tight. The last few weeks rather suggest that the situation is improving at least a little and this should continue.

The availability of the consoles does not depend, in any case, on the resellers who immediately offer all the consoles they have available, and they indeed leave very quickly, like any product whose demand exceeds supply. This is not a conscious choice on the part of merchants like Rakuten, Fnac or Cdiscount: the shortage is not their fault. It is therefore very important to show patience and perseverance: millions of PS5 have still been sold since the release of the console and it is therefore not impossible to obtain one!
