Buying a PS5 in 2021 wasn’t exactly simple. But with new stock and access, could it be easier for gamers in 2022? Let’s explore…

Buying a PlayStation 5 in 2022

It's still early days, but there are already some indications that buying a PlayStation 5 in 2022 may be easier than it was in 2021.

The global pandemic has had a major impact on the gaming industry, with production delays and supply chain disruptions leading to shortages of popular consoles like the PS5. However, things are starting to improve and look like they could be on the up! So, does this mean you will be getting your hands on the elusive console soon? Let's delve a little deeper…

Production of the PS5

Production is starting to ramp up and catch up after being delayed due to the pandemic. This means that there should be more consoles available on the market, which is great news for those who have been struggling to find one.

Stock increase for retailers

Many of you may have faced challenges last year as you scoured stores and sites to place an order for the new model. However, it looks like this could be changing too. Several retailers have already said that they are planning to increase their stock levels in the run-up to Christmas, so hopefully, this will mean that there are more consoles available for people to buy.

It is also worth noting that the PlayStation 5 has been on the market now since late 2020, as the hype for the product begins to slow down, more units will likely become available.

Of course, we can't say for certain what the situation will be like in 2022 but it looks like it could be easier to get your hands on a PlayStation 5 than it was last year. So, if you've been thinking about buying one, it might be worth waiting for just a few more months!

Must-have PlayStation 5 Accessories

Once you have got your hands on the PS5, here are several accessories we think are a must-buy:

  • PlayStation 5 HD Camera
  • PlayStation 5 Media Remote
  • PlayStation 5 DualSense Charging Station
  • Also, be sure to get your hands on the right headset you can truly immerse yourself in the gameplay. We recommend checking out the SteelSeries Arctis 7P or Pulse 3D Wireless headset.
