In a tweet sent out earlier today, Sony has reassured its fans that more PlayStation 5 inventory will be coming to retailers before the end of the year. At the moment, both the regular and digital editions of PS5 are completely sold out worldwide.
From Amazon to Walmart, no retailer can keep enough in stock to satisfy demand. As a result, the console is selling at nearly double its retail price in the resell market.
Calling the PlayStation 5 its “biggest console launch ever,” Sony said that the demand for PS5 is unprecedented and that “more PS5 inventory will be coming to retailers before the end of the year.”
We want to thank gamers everywhere for making the PS5 launch our biggest console launch ever. Demand for PS5 is unprecedented, so we wanted to confirm that more PS5 inventory will be coming to retailers before the end of the year – please stay in touch with your local retailers.
