Hoping for a PS5 drop at Expert actually seems hopeless. But Sony is currently running a big pre-order campaign and Expert is part of it.

Update from December 1st, 2022, 2:44 p.m.: Expert is currently silent on fresh PS5 supplies, at least in terms of online drops. But Sony has just started a massive local pre-order campaign and Expert is also part of it. At Expert you can now secure a PS5 directly on site in the branches. This PS5 promotion is not just limited to Expert, 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 be sure to take a regular look at our PS5 live ticker.

Original message: Hamburg – Expert regularly sells new PS5s from Sony. However, the consoles will never go on sale, but will only be distributed to people on the waiting list. Fortunately, you don’t have to wait very long on this waiting list and you’ll get the PS5 after just a few days. We’ll show you what the current supply situation at Expert looks like and how you end up on the waiting list.

Buy PS5: Dust off the console via online drop at Expert – is that even possible?

When was the last replenishment here? The last online drop at Expert was almost a year ago. The retailer sold the PS5 online for the last time in autumn 2021. Since then, the console has only been available directly in the branches via a waiting list and you can safely ignore the online shop when it comes to the PS5.

Could there be new supplies? That’s unlikely, at least for now. However, the PS5 is becoming more and more available and demand is falling. So it could well be that Expert will soon say goodbye to his waiting list strategy and offer the PS5 online again. That would still be very surprising.

Buy PS5: get the console via the waiting list at Expert – it’s that easy to get it

How to get on the waiting list: You can easily get on the Expert waiting list. Simply call or stop by your local expert and speak to employees on the waiting list. They’ll then put you on the list for free and call you when the PS5 is in stock and it’s your turn.

In the meantime, the waiting lists in many places are not that long. So you can sometimes expect a call after just a few days. It should be mentioned that the branches never get replenishment at the same time. So some branches get to the PS5 faster than others. If you still want to try your luck with an online drop, we recommend our live ticker on “Buy PS5”. There you will not miss a drop in Germany.
