Where can you buy a PlayStation 5 in Russia with a terrible shortage after a year

In 2022, the global shortage of PlayStation 5 continues across the world.

Official retailers are looking for ever more inventive ways to sell consoles every time, so that they do not fall into the hands of dealers. And even so, getting a new generation of consoles becomes extremely problematic. “Curling irons” are sold out in a matter of hours.

We figure out what is happening with the officials and how you can buy a PlayStation 5 in Russia.

Is PS5 in stock in Ozon, M.Video, DNS and other stores

The official sellers of the console appear at certain moments, which are announced in advance by both the stores themselves and the media.

Here are the official prices recommended by Sony:

▪️ PlayStation 5: 49,990 rubles
▪️ PlayStation 5 Digital Edition: 40,990 rubles

Devices are distributed during “closed” sales. Often, several verification steps are required. For example, one of the most common conditions is the existence of an account for at least six months, but more often more. In this case, the account must be “live”, that is, purchases should have been made from it.

Otherwise, it is almost impossible to buy the PlayStation 5 from the officials. Some have special bundles (sets) available, but they cost crazy money. For example, at the time of this writing, you could buy a PS5 from MTS for 250 THOUSAND rublesalthough you will get not only the console but other gadgets as well:

This is the most expensive version of the console. Other sellers have cheaper bundles, but they have already been sold out.

So what do we see at the time of this writing?

The situation with the official availability of the PlayStation 5 in Russia is depressing. It is very difficult to buy it from “white” sellers.

But the dealers of consoles in bulk

All PS5s from PCT to non-PCT in Russia were bought by dealers. They sell consoles at overpriced prices.

Then everything depends only on the impudence of specific sellers. On average, the cost of a “digital” edition is around 80 thousand rubles, and a “disk” – about 90 thousand rubles. But there are even higher prices.

Yes, on Yandex.Market PlayStation 5 Digital Edition price varies from 78,730 rubles to 120,000 rubles, and for a regular PlayStation 5 – from 77,080 rubles to 194,490 rubles.

How to track the availability of PlayStation 5 in Russia

At the moment in Russia there is only one functioning bot that allows you to track the availability of PlayStation 5 in official stores at prices recommended by Sony.

🕹 Бот Telegram — PS5 Status (paid, notifies at least with a donation of 150 rubles), they also have official siteshowing the presence of consoles in real time

There are also bots that advertise the presence of the console around the world. For instance, PS5 BeNelux Stock Bot… It’s free.

Don’t feed dealers

PlayStation 5 sales periodically start in official stores and on the Sony website.

There is no point in overpaying for something that can be bought 2 times cheaper. Nowadays, there are still few exclusives available for the next generation consoles. It is better wait a little and take for the prices offered by the “gray” stores, a complete set of the console, a pair of gamepads and games for them.

Yes, now there is nothing in stock, but in the near future the situation is likely to change again.
