Playstation 5: Release in China - sold out immediately

Playstation 5: Release in China - sold out immediately

Playstation 5

The Playstation 5 has been on the market for almost six months, but it is still very difficult to get at the normal price. This is due to the current crisis in the production of semiconductors - they are needed in countless products, including game consoles of course, but cannot currently be produced in sufficient numbers to meet the demand, which has risen sharply since the corona pandemic. Industry suppliers say the situation will not get much better for years. Nevertheless, Sony is now releasing the Playstation 5 in China in mid-May after Chinese authorities have allowed the sale. Within a very short time all contingents available for pre-orders were sold out.

Release and price in China

In China, the Sony console will hit the market on May 15, 2021, i.e. two weeks from Saturday. The normal version costs 3,900 Chinese yuan (approx. 497 euros), the digital edition changes hands for 3,100 Chinese yuan (approx. 395 euros). The prices are almost identical to those in Germany. At least if you can get hold of the PS5 at the normal price - scalpers charge significantly higher prices for a Playstation 5 (buy now).
