MediaMarkt and Saturn are the number 1 point of contact for the PS5 in Germany. New supplies could arrive soon. We show you the current situation.
Update of 04/09/2022, 08:50 am: Consoles continued to appear locally at MediaMarkt and Saturn stores this week. Small stock of the console was sold here.

Update of 04/08/2022, 10:00 am: Rumors are currently circulating that PS5 consoles can be purchased today at MediaMarkt in Nienburg. Unfortunately, we cannot yet confirm if this is true. But if you live nearby, give it a try. They’re having a grand reopening there today and there should be plenty of strong deals, but apparently also the PS5.
Update of 04/08/2022, 09:40 am: For our Austrian readers: Apparently the PS5 can now be reserved locally at some (not all) MediaMarkt branches in Austria (eg Wien Mitte), as a bundle with Gran Turismo 7 and Horizon Forbidden West for €650 against a €100 deposit Location.
Update from 04/08/2022 at 08:45: Even today (and in the days to come), we recommend keeping an eye on your local MediaMarkt and Saturn representatives as a precaution. At least two Saturn stores had already offered the PlayStation 5 on the site this week and it can’t be ruled out that more MMS branches could follow before Easter.
Incidentally, spontaneous campaigns from other retailers are in principle possible at any time and without notice, especially now, just before Easter.

Update of April 7, 2022: It wasn’t that long ago that MediaMarkt and Saturn sold the console online. Currently, however, local MMS markets should also be monitored as a precaution. Because in the current week, at least two Saturn markets have offered a limited number of PS5 consoles on the site, as a bundle to go. So it could well be that other branches do the same before Easter.

Buy PS5: MediaMarkt and Saturn as console giants: when will there be supplies?
When was the last time the PS5 was available to buy? The latest drop on MediaMarkt and Saturn took place in two parts. The last replenishment at MediaMarkt was on March 23. On Saturn, the crash took place on March 28. This was because both dealers were struggling with major technical issues and therefore Saturn was only able to start a few days later. But there were also difficulties. In the event of a crash, these links are important:
When could there be a recharge? MediaMarkt and Saturn normally replenish them once a month. However, this number has decreased in recent months, so the next drop could come a little later. However, technical issues with the last drop sparked all sorts of speculation. It is possible that not all shares have been sold yet and another drop is imminent.
In addition, many experts expect a new sales campaign directly at the branches. That could be as far before Easter. No consoles have appeared here for a long time, so a local drop is quite conceivable.
The PS5 is not sold online at MediaMarkt and Saturn on a fixed day of the week. The weather also varies a lot. There were descents in the early morning, but also in the afternoon.
Buy PS5: Tips for buying consoles from MediaMarkt and Saturn
You should keep these tips in mind: At MediaMarkt and Saturn there is a so-called shopping cart trick. If you still have a PS5 in your shopping cart from a previous drop that you were unable to purchase, you should not remove it from the shopping cart. In the next drop, sometimes exactly these people have an advantage and could attack before the official drop.
Also, drops at MediaMarkt and Saturn tend to take place in waves. Therefore, there are often two waves that take place a few minutes apart. Also, there are usually always supplies at MediaMarkt and Saturn, not just one of the two retailers. If you missed the drop at MediaMarkt, you should keep an eye on Saturn. I should continue a little later. We have summarized the general situation regarding the PS5 in another article. *Affiliate link
