Where are new supplies? The development at Amazon should be particularly interesting. Here, for the first time last week, there was a chance to buy the PS5 through an invitation. Since then there is still a chance Request an invitation for an upcoming drop. It remains to be seen when it will be available for sale again and whether other bundles may be offered.
At MediaMarkt and Saturn, on the other hand, things could get a little quieter this week. There was a sale here recently and it is more likely that there will be a pre-order campaign directly in the branches.
This week you should also keep an eye on the smaller retailers. Müller, GameStop or even Spielegrotte haven’t sold a PS5 for a long time. It could be that time again soon.
