Watch out at GameStop. Locally, there are still good chances in some branches at the beginning of December that you can pick up a PS5 bundle there.

Update from December 1st, 2022, 2:34 p.m.: GameStop is currently still quiet about fresh PS5 supplies, at least in terms of online drops. But today Sony launched a massive local pre-order campaign and GameStop is part of it. At GameStop you can now secure a PS5 directly in the branches. This PS5 promotion is not just limited to GameStop, but includes 10 retailers, with more to come.

If you want to find out more about this gigantic campaign, don’t miss a drop in general and always be up to date on the current supply situation for the PlayStation 5, then you should definitely take a look at our PS5 live ticker regularly.

Update 12/01/2022, 7:40 a.m.: The online sales are over, but there are still reports that there are still good chances of securing a PS5 bundle locally in some places – whether via a waiting list or even directly to take away. So if you have a GameStop branch near you – it might be worth a visit.

Update 11/30/2022, 11:58 am: Aaaaand it starts again – off to GameStop! There doesn’t seem to be a queue this time, you can order right here. Here you can currently get the following:

Buy PS5: Online flash sale at GameStop – dealer announces drop

This is what GameStop announced: The retailer has contacted media partners via press release. It states that today, November 29th, the “big online flash sale” will take place. Among other things, bundles of the PS5 with God of War are sold there. There will be both digital and disc editions. So you can buy the PS5 at GameStop today.

When does the online flash sale start? It starts at 3 p.m. German time. Then the flash sale will start. We anticipate the rush must be great as thousands of fans continue to wait for the PS5. However, the quantities of consoles should also be quite large, otherwise GameStop would not announce such an action beforehand.

The price of the bundle is not yet known. GameStop has scored well in the past with fair prices. If you want to get an overview of GameStop’s website, you can have a look here:
