Will the PS5 be on sale for Prime Day 2022?


It's one of the most talked-about tech products of all time, but will the PS5 go on sale for Prime Day 2022?

There are plenty of reasons to be excited for Amazon Prime Day 2022. The marquee sales event hasn't disappointed in recent years and we're expecting some big sales for 2022. In fact, Amazon has already begun to roll out a range of unmissable early-bird deals.

But there's one product that gamers the world over desire more than any other. The PlayStation 5 has been marred by supply chain issues for its entire lifespan. Video game fanatics have been forced to pay through the nose on the reseller market for any chance to cop the console. That's when they have been lucky enough to find it in stock at all.

So there's a natural question. Will you be able to cop the PS5 on Prime Day 2022? Should you dare to dream of finding it on sale? Let's investigate.

For more information on the PS5, check out our official review and our comparison guide to the PlayStation 5 vs Xbox Series X. You can also see our run-down of the best early Prime Day gaming deals.

Can you buy the PS5 on Prime Day?

The good news is that there are PlayStation 5 consoles available to purchase on Amazon Australia. The bad news? It's the Digital Edition, meaning it cannot play physical discs. It also costs a staggering $1,099 – close to double the RRP of $599.95. To top it all off, stock is quickly diminishing.

This is a classic case of PS5 resellers raising prices sky-high. If you're really desperate to get your hands on a PS5, here's the link.

We strongly suspect that this particular PS5 won't be discounted for Prime Day. So, unless you're interested in this extremely expensive reseller, the PS5 for all intents and purposes will not be available for Prime Day.

Amazon has also released a sample of some of the deals we can expect on Prime Day. The PS5 is sadly nowhere to be found.

It looks like Prime Day will not be the silver bullet to cure your PS5 woes. So what can you do to give yourself the best possible chance to secure the console?

This helpful eBay link shows you the cheapest price for which the PS5 is available on the website. eBay has consistently offered the most affordable prices for purchasing the console, so this link is definitely one to watch.

If you're a Twitter user, PS5 Stock Alerts Australia is a great follow. This account lets you know whenever PlayStation 5 stock becomes available at major Australian retailers.

Daring consumers could also consider importing a PlayStation 5 from an overseas seller. However, this comes with complications, such as the need to purchase an adaptor plug, shipping costs and everyone's favourite pastime, international consumer law disputes.

Before buying a PlayStation 5 from any kind of reseller, do plenty of background research to ensure you don't get scammed.
