  • toNoah Strothoff


MediaMarkt and Saturn are the best places to buy PS5 supplies in Germany. When do sellers drop in may?

Updated from 09/05/2022, 07:56 AM: Of course, one does not know if the rumors about an upcoming domestic campaign for pre-order are true, but the parallel with Austria is not far off and the source from the scene was also right about the recent MMS campaign. As a precaution, you should keep a close eye on MediaMarkt and Saturn in the new week – also or especially local branches. Because there, appropriate advertising posters are often seen before such actions.

By the way, MediaMarkt and Saturn aren’t the only exciting PS5 providers at the moment. Other retailers are also currently offering new console supplies. For a comprehensive overview of the current state of supply and all relevant developments related to PlayStation 5, we recommend that you take a look at our PS5 live stream.

Update from 5/7/2022 at 8:45 am: Mediamarket and Saturn are likely to remain relatively calm today, and no declines or local campaigns are expected. However, there is currently an exciting development that raises hopes for a renewal of the MMS service in the near future.

Let us first focus briefly on Austria. Yesterday, another big local pre-order campaign started right there on MediaMarkt. The interesting thing for us in Germany: It wasn’t that long ago. And shortly after the last pre-order campaign in MediaMarkt Austria, a large-scale pre-order campaign in MediaMarkt and Saturn in that country also followed. Yesterday there was speculation in the PS5 hunter scene that things could be the same this time around and that the next local campaign could soon be launched in MMS.

What adds even more spice to the matter: A little later, an insider spoke up, saying that according to his sources, there will indeed be another big pre-order campaign at MediaMarkt and Saturn in Germany soon. This should certainly take place this month, that is, in May, and it will again bring with it large amounts of supplies.

We cannot verify the whole thing, so this purported information should be treated with the necessary caution. But even with the recent MMS campaign, these sources are correct, and the parallel with Austria is unfounded. So it remains exciting to see if MediaMarkt and Saturn will soon be offering pre-orders at local branches again.

Buying PS5: Tips for buying consoles from MediaMarkt and Saturn

Here’s how to secure the console: Use the shopping cart trick on MediaMarkt and Saturn. If you still have an old drop-off controller in your cart because you can’t buy it, don’t delete it from there. With a new drop, this console can often be paid for faster and you have an advantage over all other buyers.

Also, the drops here come in waves. If MediaMarkt sells the console first, Saturn usually follows the same procedure after a few minutes. So watch both traders at the same time. We’ve summarized the general situation of the PS5 live bar console.
