It has already been a few months since Sony’s PlayStation 5 was officially released, but the demand for the gaming console is still extremely high as the supply remains very limited. While retailers have periodically managed to offer small numbers of PS5 since its November 12th launch date last year, those stocks sold out instantly, leaving a lot of gamers frustrated at being unable to get their hands on the hottest gaming console today.
Games industry experts estimate that the demand for PlayStation 5 will continue to outpace Sony’s ability to supply the console for at least a few months into 2021. So, if you’re looking for other ways to get your very own PS5 aside from actually purchasing it, below is a giveaway that you can enter for a chance to win the elusive gaming console.
This You Sweeps promotion is only open to legal U.S. residents who are at least 18 years old. The sweepstakes has three promotional closing dates with new prize winners on every end date of each trimester: April 30th (trimester 1), August 31st (trimester 2), and December 31st (trimester 3).
To join the PlayStation 5 giveaway, simply enter your contact information on the landing page and complete the full entry form, including a short survey, that will follow. No purchase necessary to enter and/or win the sweepstakes.
While there are a lot of reasons why gamers are having an extremely difficult time in finding PlayStation 5 stocks, one apparent factor that exacerbated the situation for them is the fact that most PS5 units are only available online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This means that gamers are not only competing among themselves but also battling scalpers or those people who are using bots or other technology to buy the consoles in bulk as soon as they became available and reselling them for as much as $1,000 each afterwards.
