Products available on the German store include the PlayStation 5, DualSense controller, headset, PS Plus membership, and PlayStation exclusive games. However, the console is currently out of stock. It is unclear whether the console will be easier to purchase when going directly through the PlayStation Direct store.
For those using PlayStation Plus, there are currently six games available for free. In addition to the usual three free games for PS Plus members, three PSVR titles are also available. The VR games are being made free to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the hardware. The games available are The Persistence, The Walking Dead: Saint & Sinners, and Until You Fall.
Alongside these, fans can also get Knockout City and First Class Trouble on the PS4. Kingdom Of Amalur: Re-Reckoning will also be available. While the three flat-screen titles will only be available for a month, the VR games will be claimable until January 3 2022.
In PlayStation’s last State of Play event, it was revealed that Bugsnax would be receiving an expansion. Isle Of Bigsnax will add a new biome along with new bugsnax to capture. Players will receive a new shrinking gun to help them deal with the oversized enemies coming in the expansion.
