The new PS5 released in November 2020 is still nowhere to be found. If enthusiasm dips a bit with the desperation to find the console, it remains a product that is eagerly awaited by a large segment of video game enthusiasts. It could be your lucky moment this Sunday morning: SFR releases a new stock of the famous PlayStation console.
As always, you must be among the first to take advantage. From the first minutes, PS5 stock was taken by storm. Already only the PS5 Digital Edition is left, with the standard version now out of stock. As part of a Box+PS5 offer, however, you benefit from a reduced price on the version without a Blu-Ray player (241 euros).

It has to be acknowledged that SFR isn’t the most obvious retailer when it comes to selling PS5. But the big players like Amazon, Cdiscount or Micromania don’t have the Japanese console in stock. It is therefore a good alternative to get your hands on the new product, knowing that it will be sold 2 to 3 times more expensive on second-hand websites.
With many titles being released on the PS5, not being able to enjoy them is extremely frustrating. This small inventory of PS5s, which we estimate at a few hundred units, won’t last long online. Since this Sunday morning, many on social networks have commented that they got their hands on this small stock of the console.
A PS5 in exchange for an internet box
SFR is primarily a telecoms provider that sells cell phone plans and internet boxes. If he managed to get a small supply of PS5, he still intends to cash in on his core business. For this reason, the PS5 is only offered to customers on the condition that they subscribe to a box at home. However, there are several reasons why this combination is relevant.
First of all, you obviously need a very good internet connection to be able to play the PS5. Choosing this SFR formula gives you access to the operator’s highest-performing fiber. This ensures the best possible gaming experience. You won’t be bothered by slowdowns or display issues.
Then we can be reassured that the price-performance ratio of the fiber is right. In this case, SFR will provide you with fiber optics (after prior verification of your eligibility) with a download speed of 1 Gb/s and an upload speed of 500 Mb/s. The ISP adds all unlimited calls to landlines and mobiles as well as 200 TV channels in this triple play offer. This formula is sold for 34 euros per month (after a year then 53 euros), which is hardly more expensive than the standard offer.

In exchange for this subscription, you can benefit from this stock of PS5, one unit of which will be delivered to your home within a few days of ordering. Because you commit to 24 months with the box, you will also receive a special price on the console in return: the PS5 Digital Edition version costs a total of only 241 euros (instead of 399). So you save 150 euros, which you can allocate to the fiber costs.
If you want to withdraw as little money as possible immediately, SFR is doing you a favor. You can pay for your PS5 in installments: 49 euros initially, then 8 euros per month for 24 months. In the end, it will also cost you 241 euros (as if you paid for everything at once), but the costs pass more easily. Taking the pill for the next two years is a good solution.
The PS5 Digital Edition is excellent
In terms of performance, the PS5 Standard and PS5 Digital Edition are strictly the same. Also in terms of design. The only difference is the lack of a Blu-Ray drive. This means that you cannot insert game discs in the Digital Edition version, you must purchase them from the PlayStation Store.
This also means that you cannot resell the games. But this is also why the PS5 Digital Edition is 100 euros cheaper than the standard version. In the end, you’ll have access to the entire catalog of video games on the PlayStation Store and therefore also be able to take them with you wherever you go. It’s a real consolation, and it’s the only console left.
Of course, SFR asks you to switch providers for your Internet connection. You cannot enjoy the PS5 without them. However, he is also willing to fund you with 100 euros in termination fees for a completely free transition. And if you don’t like the PS5 Digital Edition, you can always resell it on a second-hand website for 2x or 3x the price. Either way, you will be a winner.
The only challenge will be getting your hands on this PS5. Remember that only one offer can be taken out per household, which of course limits the number of new customers. Whether you’re a big PS5 fan or looking to save money on your internet box, there’s plenty to do. The stock can be left at any time.
