Stock available, but watch out for the price!

PLAYSTATION 5. Since its release in late 2020, it’s been difficult to get your hands on the precious PS5. Stocks are low and demand for Sony’s new console is very high. Storage is available again on Rakuten, but not necessarily at the best price.

Summary

Difficult times for many players. Inventories for the new PS5 have continued to decline since its release last fall, making it increasingly difficult to get hold of Sony’s latest console. While it is sometimes possible to replenish some machines in certain locations, these stocks very often disappear within a few minutes. However, it appears that some PlayStation 5s will be available for purchase on the Rakuten website this Tuesday April 27, 2021, with one condition.

Quite a complicated question as the current COVID-19 pandemic is seriously affecting the production as well as the supply of the components necessary for the PS5 to function properly. However, the machine seems to be available in sufficient quantities on the Rakuten website through several resellers (professionals or individuals). However, it is displayed at a price of 799.99 euros in the classic version and 719 euros in the digital version. That is several hundred euros more than the standard prices, which amount to 499.99 euros for the classic version and 399.99 euros for the digital version. While this is obviously not the best price, these deals may still be suitable for those who can no longer wait for availability.

It is therefore difficult to maintain the valuable console of the last generation of PlayStation. However, it is possible from time to time to determine a certain availability with certain resellers. Unfortunately, as stocks are still extremely low, these availabilities never last longer than a few minutes … We will keep you informed when stocks return on certain dealer sites.

The PS5 is available at two different prices depending on the version you want. However, the latter may find that the price varies a lot depending on availability or the website you are on.

The PS5 – Basic Edition is the classic version of the PlayStation 5 console. In particular, it is equipped with an SSD hard drive, which considerably shortens the loading times of your games. The usual price is 499.99 euros. The PS5 – Digital Edition is a light version of the PlayStation 5 console and does not have an integrated Blu-Ray player. You can therefore only buy your games in dematerialized form in this edition. The usual price is 399.99 euros.

Note that apart from the BluRay player, the two versions of the PS5 are identical. So their main difference lies in the presence of a Blu-Ray player or not. It is up to you to see if you are ready to forego games in physical format and all the benefits that come with it (possibility of exchanges, resale, purchase in used format …).

If you are one of the lucky PS5 owners, you will surely be interested in some accessories, but also games that go with them! Expect less inventory on this page: the games and accessories reserved for the PS5 are easy to find anywhere on the Internet and in specialty stores. However, watch out for certain prices that can change quickly depending on inventory levels. Of course, the most popular accessories include the PlayStation 5 controller, a charging station and other products for maximum gaming comfort.

The PS5’s DualSense is also easy to find online if you want to purchase a second controller for your multiplayer sessions. Here are some special features of the exclusive PlayStation 5 controller:

If you don’t want to worry about the charging cables for your controllers, you can just fall in love with this official charging station. It can charge up to two controllers at the same time and doesn’t need to be connected to your console to work. This allows you to share the USB Type-C ports on your console for other purposes.

A console is not a console without games, and for once, the Playstation 5 brings a catalog to market that is enviable despite a very small number of exclusive products. If other games are to be expected (including Horizon 2), you can also count on non-exclusive licenses like the next Resident Evil. However, the promise of a high-end gaming experience, be it in terms of graphics or fluidity with immensely reduced loading times, is kept. So that you can see better, we’ve put together a selection of games to watch for the launch of the PS5, but also for the months to come. Enough to choose the gaming experiences you like best on the Sony console.
