It is a marathon morning which is committed for the buyers in a hurry to put a PS5 on their TV cabinet. After Boulangern la Fnac, Amazon and Cdiscount, it is the Leclerc cultural space which announces the sale of new stocks of Playstation 5. This time, it will be around 11 am, an indicative schedule which is subject to change if need.

It will therefore be necessary to be particularly vigilant on the websites of Boulanger, Amazon, Fnac, Cdiscount or even Darty.
While Boulanger’s website is supposed to be the first to put Playstation 5 restocks on sale, it already seems to be seeing a very high influx of visitors. At the time of writing, nearly 40 minutes before the indicative online publication, the site puts Internet users in a queue. “Due to a large number of connections, our loading time is longer than normal” explains on the waiting page. It’s going to be a long morning for buyers in a hurry to get their PS5 …

However, French online resellers have left hope: the machine should be made available in limited quantities as of Thursday, November 19. We will therefore follow the development of these sales with you throughout the day.

Then on November 19 in the rest of the world. In France, it is therefore on November 19 that the PS5 was released in its two models: the Digital Edition and the Standard Edition.
The Playstation 5 comes in two models: a classic model with a 4K UHD bluray disc player and a model named Digital Edition without a disc player. Logically, the PS5 Digital Edition is in fact offered at a lower price than the “classic” PS5. Indeed, the Playstation 5 Digital Edition is sold at a price of 399.99 € while the Playstation 5 is offered at a price of 499.99 €, the same price as its competitor, the Xbox Series X.
