PS5 Consoles available on Jumia ‘Black Friday’

Since the announcement of the PS5, it has been hard for very many people across the world to get their hands on the next-gen gaming console. This is because of a couple of reasons beyond anyone’s control at this point in time.

The COVID-19 pandemic affected everything including the launch date of the PS5, and brought about a serious semi-conductor shortage that has affected so many industries across the world. So many companies found themselves at a fix with demand outstripping supply. And such scenarios always lead to high prices.

The PS5 remains hard to find at a fair price because of the above factors, plus other issues including scammers and greedy resellers who lie to people about deals, or who put exorbitant prices once they have their hands on the consoles.

You probably won’t get a fair deal for a PS5 Gaming console for the next couple of months. There’s no way Sony can streamline supply and change the whole situation as the chip shortage is still expected to last a long while.

If you don’t mind the high prices, you can get yourself a PS5 from Jumia this Black Friday. From a quick perusal of the site, the deals range from KES 115,000 to KES 140,000. Of course, these are pretty high but that’s the price to pay if you must get something when supply is short.
