The new PlayStation, the PS5, came onto the market over a year ago. But since then console enthusiasts have been raging for the device, as delivery and production bottlenecks mean that the piece is still rare. It is therefore difficult to find the PS5 until Christmas 2021 but you can improve your chances.
Christmas 2021: the PS5 at what price?
It can be assumed that some people will want the new PS5 for Christmas. Therefore, you should act now as soon as possible. However, with the PS5 right now, it also depends on how much you are willing to pay. The usual price for the console is around 500 euros, at MediaMarkt it is available for 499 euros, but is currently sold out. Other retailers therefore sell the PS5 in significantly higher price ranges of around 700 to 900 euros each.
Depending on how important the console is to you or your neighbor, you should weigh up. Either you hope for an early increase at MediaMarkt, update the dealer’s website every day and, in the best case, save a few hundred euros. However, the chances are good that you will still not be able to purchase a PS5 for the usual price. The alternative is to order the PS5 for significantly more money and thus have the gift for sure.
PS5: You can get it here
With the PS5, some dealers are currently earning a golden nose, which is why it is offered in many places. You can get it cheaply from Amazon, Saturn or MediaMarkt, where it is currently not available. So it’s best to check every day whether that has changed. Some GameStop branches also sometimes have the console, which is why you should visit them on site.
In addition, the second cheapest way to find the PS5 used on eBay is classifieds. Depending on how big your city is and how fast you are, you can also get hold of a PS5 here. In Berlin, for example, the offer is relatively large, the price is usually between 600 and 800 euros.
These two methods will improve your chances, but success is not guaranteed. Kaufland is an option to get 100 percent of the PS5 by Christmas 2021. The PlayStation is available in different versions from 835 euros, shipping takes place within a week and payment in installments with Klarna is possible. EBay is also currently offering the PS5 from 699 euros and guarantees delivery within a week.
Conclusion: The PS5 can still be bought in time
With the PS5 as a gift for Christmas 2021, you have to weigh up. One thing is certain, however: you shouldn’t wait a day longer. However, if you know that your family member is not angry with you if the PS5 does not arrive a few days or weeks later, you can save a few euros. If this is not the case, you should order as soon as possible.
There are several reasons why the PS5 is barely available. There are also a few tips and things to keep in mind when setting up the console.
