PlayStation Direct is bringing more PS5s to Europe, but will they be easier to buy?

Sony has just launched the PlayStation Direct online store in Germany, with plans to roll the new website out across Europe in the coming weeks. Launching just ahead of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals period, the PlayStation Direct website could potentially make it easier for consumers to buy a PS5.

As reported by VGC, the official PlayStation Germany Twitter account put out a tweet announcing PlayStation Direct’s launch in the country, with the “UK, France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg will follow shortly.”

PlayStation Direct’s addition to European countries follows a successful launch period for the service in the US, of which Sony Interactive Entertainment president and CEO Jim Ryan said had “achieved significant revenue in the US market within little more than a year of starting operations.”

The launch of PlayStation Direct in Europe lines up with a recent report that Sony had been airlifting PS5s into the UK to help keep up with holiday demand. While a substantial amount of these consoles will likely be going directly to high street retailers, it’s possible many of them will be kept in warehouses strictly for PlayStation Direct purchases.
