The PS5 is available from multiple retailers, a situation difficult to imagine a year ago. We help you find it at the best price.
[Updated March 29, 2023 at 4:32 p.m.] The return of PS5s to stock is very topical at the end of March 2023. As announced by Jim Ryan, CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment last January, the console is finally available to the general public on a permanent basis. That's why we help you find it at the best possible price just below.
The return of the Playstation 5 in stock since the beginning of the year 2023 is not a happy coincidence. In January, Jim Ryan, CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment announced that the production of the famous consoles would gradually resume its course in the first half. A boon for all players who have still not been able to afford to buy the console at its actual selling price (sometimes 100% higher than the official selling price between 2020 and 2022).
As for two years, Sony remains the first choice if you want to get a Playstation 5. The manufacturer regularly put consoles on sale on its site during the shortage that followed its release, and offers bare consoles or in packs these last weeks. The Sony site is therefore the best option for a quick and less expensive purchase of the console. If you are interested in promotions, on the other hand, you should rather go to resale sites such as CDiscount, Amazon or Fnac.
For many buyers Amazon remains a place of choice to obtain high-tech equipment. And rightly so as far as home consoles are concerned, since the American retailer is one of the most regular sellers in its category. At the moment, you can find all kinds of consoles on the e-commerce site, and particularly on its English site which very often offers sales of PS5 packs. Delivery and conversion costs are to be taken into account but remain very reasonable.
Fnac is back in the PS5 market with lots of sales in recent days. The yellow brand offers many ways to obtain the console, in particular online via sales which are always quite ephemeral (as the console is popular) or in store where Playstation 5 stocks are always more numerous. Today, no current sale on the retailer's site, but we can only advise you to go to the store to find your happiness.
Once again, CDiscount is the only French seller on the web where to find a PS5 right now. The company offers console bundles at varying prices, ranging from a simple PS5 controller game combo to much more comprehensive bundles. Count between €600 and €850 for these offers open to all buyers. As a reminder, the selling price of the PS5 is today €550 for the Standard version and €450 for the Digital version. A controller game console pack is normally sold by Sony at €619.99.
A champion of peer-to-peer sales, Rakuten has long been a go-to site for second-hand PS5 sales. A good way to get the console at a much higher price at the worst times of the shortage in recent years. At this time, you will be able to find very relevant offers for Sony's console on the resale platform, whether new or used. Here are the best PS5 deals at Rakuten.
