With used consoles, you always have the opportunity to find Playstation 5s for resale. Whether new or used, Sony’s console has a real-world value well above its base price, and resellers understand that. Although the resale price of the Playstation 5 has dropped by several hundred euros in recent months, it remains very high despite some interesting offers on the Rakuten site. A purchase reserved for the most motivated players who want to avoid the waltz of drops and purchases at full speed. Remember that the Playstation 5 Digital costs €399 and the standard version €499.
Buyers have been fighting to get a Playstation 5 for 18 months. The new game console is in high demand and e-commerce sites are feeling it during rare restocks and new stocks. In fact, the crowd on the latter is large, while some sites completely collapse in long queues. Speed is the key word of this new “sport”, which has certain rules that you can greatly benefit from. In fact, each site has its own operation, and this slide contains a few tricks that can help you make your purchase as quickly as possible.
As I’m sure you understood, the Playstation 5 is part of a generation of consoles that are sold out right away. Remember, when Sony’s last console was released, it was November 2020 and the coronavirus pandemic was at its peak, crippling economies around the world. Southeast Asia, the leading producer of semiconductor metals used in the manufacture of smart cards (i.e. processors and graphics processors for consoles and PCs), has been hit hard, slowing production of consoles, graphics cards and even cars around the world. A factor that is still felt today in the high-tech market and in particular that of the latest generation gaming consoles.
In the case of Playstations 5 and graphics processors in general, the situation should not return to normal before 2024. A prediction by Pat Gelsinger, Intel’s President and CEO, who confirmed in an interview with CNBC that microchip production should return to its full potential by the end of 2023. A precise expertise, but a bad omen for console and PC gamers who expected to be able to enjoy a stable situation until the end of 2023 to the end of 2022.
