Soon there should be console replenishment from Sony. In February you will again have the opportunity to get hold of a PlayStation 5 with a little luck.
According to our colleagues, it should be around this month Gameswirtschaft be able to buy Sony’s PlayStation 5 again. As before, the replenishment will be brought to the players in waves, who this time will also be a bit bigger. Only supply chains that are not intact or severe storms could still endanger the Re-Stock.
At the moment, however, it cannot be assumed that enough consoles will be available in the new wave to be able to offer one to all interested players. So – as before – you need a little luck and should keep your eyes open for supplies through February.
The general shortage of high-end hardware is not only due to the corona pandemic, but also to production bottlenecks on the part of chip manufacturers. AMD recently announced that the American manufacturer’s chips would have delivery problems until the summer. This also affects the manufacturers of consoles and graphics cards that rely on the chips.
In addition, there are always delays in the shipment of goods. On top of that, the prices here have more than doubled. In addition, the production lines stand still in some industries, which leads to further bottlenecks. With the current shortage of containers, companies sometimes have to wait several months.
In addition to Amazon, Alternate, Conrad, Cyberport, Euronics, Expert, Gamestop, Media Markt, Medimax, Mueller, Otto, Saturn and Spielegrotte are among the other official online retailers for the out of print Sony console. If you are not afraid of moon prices, you can of course challenge your luck on Ebay and Co. Anyway, we keep our fingers crossed.
