PS5 on the gray market – on ebay

A big problem with regard to the availability of the PS5 lies with the so -called scalpers. These are bots that continuously scan shop sites and buy consoles as soon as they are available. The bot operators want to continue buying consoles on trading platforms such as eBay thanks to the artificial shortage. Even if the method seems morally questionable, it is of course an option to buy the console with price -premium on eBay. However, we recommend studying the offers exactly on the seriousness of the dealers, origin of the hardware, guarantee/warranty and delivery date.

Graumarkt: * PS5 Digital from approx. 630 euros , ps5 disc from approx. 700 euros ** (eBay)

Ebay prices indirectly provide an impression of the relationship and demand. We observe the eBay prices exactly, several times a week determine the best price of reputable ebay dealers to consoles with the state of “new” and “buy immediate buy” option that are available from Germany. From this it can be derived how far the PlayStation 5 is still available in width. Here the prices are recently attracted again. While the PS5 with DISC drive was traded at prices of 650 euros in August, the cheapest prices are currently again over 700 euros. The PS5 without optical drive also costs around 670 euros again, while it was still available for 550 euros in late summer. This corresponds to surcharges of 40 to 70 percent compared to the UVP – pure usury! Unfortunately, Scalping seems to be worthwhile.

PS5 buy by tariff bundle

Even if the PlayStation 5 is currently practically permanently sold out in retail, you can sometimes order them together with a cell phone, internet or electricity tariff , because there are no scalper. Unfortunately, there are currently no tariffs available.
