Sony confirms that there will be more PlayStation 5 stock during launch compared to when the PlayStation 4 when it was released in 2013.
The news came from Sony boss Jim Ryan who talked to Washington Post and revealed that there would be more PlayStation 5 units available than the last time Sony released a console. Jim Ryan said:
“For quite some time, in the early part of COVID, that picture was far from clear. Just as the supply things were unclear, would there be any market? Would anyone be allowed to go outside? Would any shops be open? This has been a year like no other. But all of that just reinforced our resolve, and the path we determined at the start of the year was absolutely the right one.”
Based on reports, over 2 million PlayStation 4 systems were sold two weeks since the console was launched and a million sold on day one of the sales. News reports suggest that Sony booked 60 Delta planes to assist in faster shipping of the PlayStation 5.
Sony also denied reports that the company is cutting PlayStation 5 production by a whopping 4 million units because of yield issues. Preorders for the PlayStation 5 are now live and reserved units seem to run out quickly.
The PlayStation 5 is scheduled to be released on November 12 on selected regions and November 19 for the rest of the world.
