Buying PS5 will become easier: the CEO has promised Jim Ryan during the Sony conference at CES 2023, announcing the end of the “console famine” and stating that “all those who want a PS5 console will have no problem finding it at retailers around the world”. Sony also announced that it has sold approx 30 million consoles to date. This is about 5 million more than the latest data published in November.
Buy PS5: the availability of the console between myth and legend
Officially launched in November 2020, PlayStation 5 immediately had to fight with the enormous demand from users. A situation aggravated by the semiconductor crisis that characterized the pandemic period and significantly slowed down production. Finding a latest generation Sony console was, at one point, a real matter of luck.
There are those like Amazon who have tried to create a shortlist of invited users and those who, like a courier in Japan, have tried to escape with a full load of PlayStation 5s. simple for a long time. Now, however, Sony’s promises seem to give us hope.
All that glitters is not gold though. In fact, if availability for PlayStation 5 should return to high levels, concern is growing in view of the launch of PlayStation VR2, which will be officially released in February. Are we going to have another race for the shelves in hopes of being the luckiest?
