We told you two weeks ago, the end of stockouts is approaching for the PS5. According to a new rumor, crossroads could put new units up for sale as of January 18. As a reminder, Sony has opted for the exclusively online sale of its console, so it will be no need to go to the store to get it. On the other hand, it is better to present yourself in advance on the reseller’s site because, if the information proves to be correct, there is no doubt that stocks will be dispatched in no time.

Indeed, the PS5 made a record start in France, far ahead of the Xbox Series X. The console is tearing off on all sides, which is good business for speculators around the world. They sometimes earn up to $ 40,000 in a week by selling the console at exorbitant prices on eBay. Players wishing to buy the PS5 at its base price, namely 499 € for its standard version and 399 € for the Digital Edition therefore had no choice but to wait for stocks to be supplied again.

However, the information should be taken with a grain of salt, because many rumors about a possible return of stocks abound on the Net. After the severe shortage which hit the dealers as soon as the PS5 was released, players had to be patient. Sony had however asserted that sufficient stocks, but the firm probably did not foresee that the wait would be so important.
