PlayStation 5 back in stock soon
It’s no secret that the PlayStation 5 is sold out everywhere. That is annoying for everyone, but especially for the gamers who have been eagerly awaiting the latest from Sony. Hence, it is good to see Sony finally responding to the problem by announcing that soon PlayStation 5 back in stock. In a tweet, the company says that we can expect more consoles before the end of the year. The new PS5 models must therefore arrive at various retailers before the end of 2020.
Sony reports that there is unprecedented demand for the device; therefore there are now delivery problems. The company has also announced that this is the “largest console launch ever”, but such a statement naturally has some snags. Apart from that, the Japanese electronics giant has not yet released any sales figures, so you may wonder out loud whether that is even true within the boundaries of this company.
All those comments are of course all well and good, but there is still a lot unclear. For example, it is not clear how many PlayStation 5 models will be delivered before the end of the year and how many will appear in the Netherlands and Belgium. The ongoing pandemic is also part of the supply problems. A lot of people are at home (if all goes well) and so have time for video games, which probably means there is also more demand than ever.
Jim Ryan, the director and CEO of PlayStation, said earlier that there were as many PS5 models sold in the first twelve hours as in the first twelve weeks of the PlayStation 4. That, too, is a statement we cannot verify now; if true, that’s good news for Sony.
