Update from May 10, 2022 (8:45 AM): We’re currently evaluating current PS5 sales numbers including the 2022 forecast, which was announced a few minutes ago – and an update will follow.

A message from May 9, 2022 (9 a.m.): It’s going to be exciting tomorrow, Tuesday: That’s when Sony Group will announce business and sales numbers for the past season (April 2021 to March 2022) — including forecasts for the current year. One can assume that the crunch of chips and traffic jams for container ships in front of Asian ports will continue to have a significant impact on delivery volumes.

Sony has already announced production cuts for the first quarter of this year, which can be traced to a roughly 1:1 ratio in our decline stats. Because between January and March, it was very difficult to get a PlayStation 5 at all – only in April quantities increased again significantly in the last third of the month.

If you don’t own a PlayStation 5 yet, you still need a lot of luck and patience to get your hands on a gaming console. Evidence one: In May, which was already a few days ago, Amazon* was the only retailer to sell larger quantities.

We assume that we will see rarer declines with fewer commodities in May – also because, among other things, the shutdown-related effects on logistics in Asia have not been incorporated into the latest declines. Because the console, which was delivered or delivered at the end of April, came off the assembly line in February or March. Everything that is now sold out in May, on the other hand, comes from the April collections.

When Sony’s balance sheet is presented tomorrow, there will definitely be very specific information on the subject, in terms of how many consoles can be expected in the second quarter (April to June) and towards the end of the year.

Among our readers’ favorite retailers, Amazon – for reasons. Since there have been almost no cancellations in the last year and a half – technical issues do occur when accessing the website and app during a drop, but they are limited.

If you’re speculating on the Amazon PS5, here are two important tips. First: Always sign in with a Prime account (Free Test*) – nothing works without Prime. Second: Make sure to take the opportunity to put the console on your watch and wishlist:

The number of PS5 consoles originally packaged on Ebay* is still pretty high: Level approximately 800 pieces. According to our statistics, tariffs have decreased slightly in the past few days, and this is due to greater “competition”. The “naked console” sometimes sold for less than 700 euros, but including the game package, the total price was closer to 750 euros. The digital version varies between €550 and €600, which is still a huge premium compared to the RRP – which is also due to the fact that the model has not been available at all for a long time. Less than 20 devices are currently shown on Ebay.

When has the retailer sold the PlayStation 5 since September 2021 (as of May 3, 2022)
