UPDATE 12/3/2020 10 AM: As was easily predictable, the situation is rather unsustainable with Trony that at times doesn’t even work and Euronics that when it works puts you in a queue after about 80,000 people.
The odyssey in search of a PS5 will continue tomorrow (Friday 4/12) morning with Unieuro announcing new stocks.
UPDATE 12/02/2020: Some retailers have confirmed that the new PS5 will be available online only tomorrow, December 3. Find the updated situation just below, for the moment we do not know if other stores will do the same.
UPDATE: The consoles on Amazon at these links (disable AdBlock to view them) :
- PS5 with player
- PS5 Digital Edition
They may be unavailable
Amazon has confirmed that new PS5 stock will be available on launch day. Starting from 13:00 on November 19th, PS5 will be available for purchase again on the portal.
Obviously, the stocks will be very limited but you could be among the lucky ones who will take home the almost unobtainable next-gen from Sony.
Original news: In case you are looking for a PS5 pre-order you are certainly not in a very simple situation but if the idea of arriving at day one without your booking receipt is absolutely not for you is still to be despaired (at least not entirely).
But let’s start with a brief reference to the situation of Amazon Italy. Currently, the console cannot be pre-ordered on Amazon after a sold out in a few minutes. The hope is that more stocks will arrive in the next few days also considering the reassurances from Sony.
