Playstation 5 Shortage Finally Over – Sony



Although Sony claims the PlayStation 5 shortage is officially ended, it’s still difficult to purchase.

Jim Ryan, the head of gaming at the company, announced on Wednesday that 30 million PS5s had now been sold globally. The “largest month ever” for the console’s sales, he said, was December 2022.

“Everyone who wants a PS5 should have a much easier time finding one at retailers globally starting from this point forward,” said Ryan. Watch Sony’s 2023 Consumer Electronics Show here.


“We truly appreciate the support and the patience of the PlayStation community as we managed unprecedented demand amid global challenges over the past two years,” Ryan said.

The console was released in November 2020, but for the majority of its lifespan, it was incredibly challenging to find. The development of Sony’s new PS5 consoles was constrained by a lack of semiconductor chips.

The global coronavirus epidemic also caused other supply chain problems, which didn’t help.

Ryan stated during the Sony press conference that supply would gradually improve by the end of 2022. Sony announced in November 2022 that it had sold 25 million units, and it is likely that the company sold an additional five million consoles in December 2022.
