During the fourth wave of sales of the PS5, there were huge queues at an online retailer. Euronics answered a few of our questions.

Update from February 19, 2021: Euronics has once again taken a position on the situation around the sale of the PS5 taken this week. In an answer to our e-mail request, the PR team of the store chain said that there was no concrete information on the number of available Consoles at the last Sales wave could be made. But it would be a “not small quota for both variants”, so both the disc version of the PS5 as well as the digital version were available and a large number of interested customers would have been through Consoles can be operated.

Nevertheless, the demand from end customers is loud Euronics Unsurprisingly, extremely high and significantly higher than the available quotas for the Consoles been. He has oversales and bot attacks Shop want to avoid using a captcha and its queuing concept. According to official figures from the site, it was at peak time, about an hour and a half after the start of the Sales of the PS5 more than 130,000 Fans in the Queue plugged. Of the sale but was stopped immediately when the existing contingents were sold out, so none of the contingents should get stuck in the air Orders.

Buy PS5: Queues for console at Euronics in the six-figure range

In the last few days there have been new sales of the PS5 at Saturn, Alternate and at Euronics. Just like the Fans but on the probably quite small numbers rushed, none of the websites of the Online retailer withstand the rush reasonably. In the case of the sale of the PS5 at Euronics, the administrators of the website finally had to take action and gain access to the PS5 regulate somehow. So a queue was introduced to accommodate the Buyers would gradually redirect to the product page. An initial opinion from Euronics according to the demand have significantly exceeded the supply quota.


 The  queue helped but little and in the ever increasing positions in the queue of Euronics was the extent of the onslaught on that PS5 only really evident. We have a screenshot where one of our editors landed in line at number 55,733. Elsewhere it is said that we had over 100.000 People stuck in the queue for a console. One can safely assume that with so many Fans only a small handful of lucky ones actually to one PS5 has come.
