We have received word that the third drop of PS5 stock will go live in South Africa this week (not only at Makro). As far as we know, most retailers are set to go live on Friday but we urge you to keep your eyes peeled in the next few days in case this changes. We will share updates on the rollout when we learn more. We also tweet when a retailer has stock so make sure you follow us on Twitter to stay alert.
Here’s where you can grab a PS5 during the third drop of stock in SA. We will update this over the course of the week
- Makro (expected delivery 17 December) – Sold out 🙁
- BT Games – Going live at 12 pm on 8 December 2020
The third PS5 drop will hopefully bring some relief to gamers who have been looking for a console. The PS5 has almost been out a month in SA and only a fraction of the local gaming community have managed to get their hands on one. The previous second drop of stock latest a few minutes at retailers in SA before selling out.
