Stock PS5: The next gen console from Sony soon available at Amazon, Fnac and Cdiscount?

More from Author Brent Dubin here:

It’s been two months since the Next Gen arrived in France and yet the PlayStation 5 is continuously out of stock. Nonetheless, there are rumors that new PS5 stocks may be available this week.

These rumors appeared last week and announce the arrival of new PS5 stocks on French territory. If this is not so surprising, the exact date remains unknown. At the moment, no formalization has been made by Sony, but the situation could quickly change.

To prepare for the next restocking of PS5, you will need to be responsive. For that we will update this article regularly, as soon as the console is available again. You can count on to keep you informed on PS5 stock news. In the meantime, you can consult the web pages of these distributors to check availability.

  • Pre-order the PS5 from Amazon
  • Pre-order the PS5 at fnac
  • Pre-order the PS5 from Darty
  • Pre-order the PS5 at Micromania

How long will the stockouts last?

The time is starting to be long. After a launch on November 19 and which will have sold more than 3 million consoles in a few days according to some estimates, very lucky are those who were able to acquire a console at the end of last year. Since then, inventory returns have been observed in December in very small quantities. This situation is not beneficial for Sony and this is exactly why things are expected to move quickly. The production chains are running at full speed and must deliver the consoles in sufficient quantity at the start of the year. The next waves of PS5 should therefore arrive this month.

Which distributors are best able to receive stock?

Logically, all the players in the distribution receive restocking on a quantity of PS5 distributed according to the territory. However, retailers are free to choose when to market. This is why we see different timings depending on the distributors. Most of the time, FNAC and Cdiscount are the first to draw, followed very closely by Auchan. It is therefore likely that the first stocks of PS5s marketed in 2021 will be on the side of these brands. Of course, Micromania, Amazon, E.Leclerc and others will be there. It remains to be seen how much is allocated to the territory. If the number of PS5s is very limited, the distribution will be very tight between the distributors. Like last year, stocks are therefore likely to run out in a few minutes. That said, if the restocking is more important, it would allow to meet the demand for a time. Anyway, we hope for better visibility of the situation.

As you know, the situation in 2021 remains difficult and is not conducive to in-store purchase. However, for many months, the brands have been organized. Click and collect has become more democratic and ensures rapid reception in order to minimize the risks. This generation launch is organized exclusively online for a reception at home or at your dealer.

Two models of PlayStation 5

The machine, available in two versions, was launched on November 19 in France. The first difference between these two versions is the price. Higher for the standard version, it is set at the price of 499.99 €, while the All Digital version is sold at the price of 399.99 €. The second major difference is in the optical drive, present in the standard version and absent in the cheapest version. The price argument remains decisive, but the service component should not be overlooked, especially for the digital version!

The PS Plus offers a new offer with the possibility of playing a selection of PlayStation 4 titles, freely accessible on the platform and exclusively for PS Plus subscribers. This gives access to a large catalog of titles to start the adventure with your PlayStation 5 while waiting for the major exclusives of this year such as Horizon: Forbidden West or God Of War Ragnarok.

As a reminder, the PS5 pack contains the console, a controller, a base, an HDMI cable, a power supply, a USB cable and the Astro’s Playroom game downloadable via the PSN.

2021: Towards standardization?

The least we can say is that the communication of the PS5 in 2020 will have been rich in twists and turns with unforgettable highlights for fans of the gaming world. The revelation of the first PS5 game, the technical demonstration of the Unreal Engine 5, the various State Of Play including that of June 11 which unveiled in details the games for the launch and to come for 2021, marked the spirits and especially prepared the ground. Added to this are interviews rich in crisp information and surprises from third-party editors. With the release of the famous console, which was received at the editorial office and for which Kaaraj delivers us his verdict, the wait could have ended there. Unfortunately, the stockouts still make millions of players wait for the long-awaited passage of the Next Gen. 2021 should nevertheless make it possible to resolve this problem for a return to normalcy in the coming weeks.
