It’s about to go back up there PlayStation 5 availability, at least according to Sony. During the CES the CEO Jim Ryan in fact, he announced the end of the “console famine”, 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.
The availability of PlayStation 5: 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?
