PS5 restocks are about to get easier as PlayStation Direct is launching in Europe

Gamers still hunting down a PS5 restock are about to get a new retailer to track, as PlayStation Direct is confirmed to be launching in Europe. 

Sony’s official retailing website, PlayStation Direct, first launched in the U.S. in September 2019 and sells consoles, games, and accessories. It had been assumed for a while that the storefront would eventually launch in additional territories and that’s now been confirmed by Sony during an investor event. 

As reported by VGC, PlayStation Direct will launch in the U.K., Ireland, Germany, France, Belgium, Netherlands, and Luxembourg by the end of Sony’s current business year, which concludes in March 2022 — though we’d expect the retailing service to be up and running in good time for the holiday season.

During a presentation, Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO, Jim Ryan, said: “PlayStation Direct has achieved significant revenue in the US market within little more than a year of starting operations. We plan for 300 percent further growth within this fiscal year, helped by our upcoming launch in Europe.”
