Message from January 14, 2022 (9:50 a.m.): We’re a little late this Friday morning, partly because we’ve got some PlayStation 5-related press inquiries on the way. Among other things, we are concerned with the question of what obscure dealer offers on the Amazon Marketplace* are all about: A number of PlayStation 5 orders that were placed yesterday morning were canceled again during the day – at least that’s what the customers affected report. Until the cases are clarified, we would like to warn against PS5 offers where a WhatsApp number is given as the seller or contact – it cannot be ruled out that these are compromised accounts. In particular, do not transmit any personal data. We have asked Amazon Germany for an opinion. An urgent warning also applies to fake shops that adopt the GameStop name and logo. The phenomenon has been around for many months, but the scammers are getting bolder: A fake, German-language .com site is now offering a “PS5 Black Limited Edition” for €649.99 – such a special model simply doesn’t exist. Payment is – of course – only possible by bank transfer. Our advice: stay away – don’t order anything, pay nothing! As soon as the money has arrived in the mostly foreign accounts, it becomes almost impossible to reclaim the amount.
An update on VF Medical Products GmbH (until recently: Von Floerke GmbH): Two more shipping confirmations have been added since yesterday. This brings us to five consoles delivered or in the process of being delivered this week. Based on reader feedback, there are still a three-digit number of customers waiting for their PlayStation 5. Some of these customers were refunded the purchase amount on the credit card account this week. If you ordered a PS5 from Von Floerke between September and November, we would be very grateful if you could keep us up to date by email. By the way, starting today, the new PS5 controllers will be delivered in Nova Pink and Starlight Blue. The gamepads are available both in stationary stores and online for prices between €75 and €80, for example at Amazon*, MediaMarkt* or Saturn*. When which retailer has sold the PlayStation 5 since January 2021 (as of December 31, 2021) Please let us know by email when you can have your pre-ordered PlayStation 5 delivered or pick it up. When you bring your newly arrived console to Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, feel free to link GamesWirtschaft or use the hashtag #PS5 landed – this is the quickest way for us to find you.
