Why these PS5 stock shortages? When will it be back to normal?
The massive shortage that is hurting PS5 stocks isn’t just for the next-gen consoles. In fact, the entire technology industry has been affected. If consoles and graphics cards are the most expensive, it is simply because they are low-priority products in production chains.
The most affecting shortage for our topic of the day is a small electronic component, the size of a grain of sand: semiconductor. These nano-technology concentrates are extremely expensive to produce and more and more industries are demanding them in large quantities. Supply can no longer keep up with demand.
On top of this tense situation, we must add the health crisis, which happened more or less at the same time as the release of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. We can also talk about the global geopolitical situation. All this will not help to return the situation to normal in the shortest time.
That being said, factories are still operating at full speed. More and more people are getting their graphic cards and game consoles and the situation is improving day by day. By 2023, it may be possible to finally see PS5s on shelves everywhere.
JV’s Top Tips for Buying a PS5 ASAP
Now to have a PS5 anytime, you have to be ready to pay any price. The shortage has made the word “scalpers” popular and it’s sad to see it.
As a reminder, a scalper is someone whose business consists of surveying real or virtual sites throughout the day to buy as many PS5s as possible to deplete the stocks of traditional merchants and build their personal that stock. This way, scalpers can surf the despair of gamers who can’t find a console to resell the valuable item to them above Sony’s recommended retail price.
Technically, the practice is not illegal, at least not to our knowledge. But a legal practice can be morally repugnant. Besides, although scalpers find customers (because they don’t bother), they also have a lot of haters.
Frankly, we advise you to wait for the return of stock as of now to buy a PS5. To maintain stocks, merchant sites put the console in large packages, but at least you get what you pay for. Scalpers often pay the price of a large bundle for a console. Just look Rakutenreseller platform with many reliable people like scalpers, to know it.
With the gradual return to normal, we strongly advise you to keep a series of tabs open and refresh them as often as possible.

We can only advise you to open customer accounts for each of the above sites (if you have Amazon Prime, even better). Then put the console in your wishlist to find it as soon as possible.
Understand that the PS5 back in stock almost does not last more than a few minutes, especially if the machine is sold without packaging and in the standard edition (the most sought after). Every minute saved, even every second spared, every click saved is valuable.
Usually, the time to enter your credit card codes is enough to see a PS5 pass under his nose.
Also note that some merchants may send alerts to customers to inform them of the PS5’s arrival.
It is also sometimes possible to have a PS5 by going to a physical store like Micromania or Fnac. Some sell their PlayStation 5s as soon as they receive them and others practice pre-orders: they then add you to a waiting list (usually subject to the payment of a deposit) and call you when they receive and PS5. This method also requires a lot of patience and finding a store that is likely to have PlayStation 5s.
