[Mis à jour le 4 mai 2022 à 10h47] More than eighteen months separate us from the official release date of the Playstation 5, but no change on the horizon regarding its purchase.

The month of May starts with bad news that can be found in a CNBC article. In a recent interview with Pat Gelsinger, the CEO of Intel, the newspaper posed the sore question, and asked for an estimated duration of the shortage of semiconductors which penalizes the computer markets, home consoles and of the automobile. The answer is not very reassuring:We believe the global semiconductor shortage will extend into 2024, despite our previous estimates (2023), as shortages are now hitting equipment and some production lines will be under severe pressure.“Bad news for the home console and graphics card market.
After a month rich in stock for the Sony console, restocking is slowing down, except for a few copies put on sale by Auchan on Monday. But the situation is a good omen for potential buyers of the Playstation 5, who are seeing an increase in the “drops” of the console. If you want to prepare effectively for the next restocking (which will probably take place this Tuesday morning), you can always consult the various tips, techniques and buying advice on our article below:
Of course, the sites of French retailers can at any time offer the Playstation 5 again. Sales that alternate between the console alone or packs including console, controllers, games and accessories. Note all the same that certain sites have their particular operation for the sales of the console. For example, sales on Amazon are exclusively for Amazon Prime members (try Prime here) and are particularly tough since all of Europe can benefit from them. At Géant Casino, you will need to pre-order the console before going to pick it up in store, while at CDiscount and Micromania it is very rare to find the console alone, but rather in packs.
