Pre-orders for Playstation 5 officially started yesterday, but in many places the new Sony console was sold or is sold out. Resourceful retailers have therefore offered the PS5 for sale on Ebay, at the monthly price of several thousand euros.
The expectation is known to be the greatest joy and the interest in the opportunity to pre-order Playstation 5 is great.

Sony is actually bringing the Playstation 5 to market in the Digital Edition without a Blu-ray device at a price of only 400 euros. PS5 including UHD Blu-ray drive costs about 500 euros. Pre-orders should be possible from September 17, but Sony did not specify from what time and from which retailers the new console can be ordered. A lot of interested people searched for it themselves and pre-ordered the PS5. The result was that retailers continued to report that they were sold. In some online stores you could still click on the shopping cart before the message came that Playstation 5 could no longer be ordered.
Sony is silent about it. The Japanese Playstation manufacturer had announced that they would inform in good time when the PS5 can be pre-ordered. This announcement was not made. In addition, Amazon says it is unclear when this item will be available again. Retailers on Ebay are now taking advantage of this chaos and trying to make money. Meanwhile, rival Microsoft has announced that the order books for the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X will open on September 22 from 9 a.m. Xbox Series X with UHD Blu-ray drive costs about 500 euros, while the smaller Xbox Series S without optical drive will be available for 300 euros. Both Xbox consoles will begin shipping on November 10. The two models of Playstation 5 will go on sale on November 19.
