Are you among those players who failed to book a PlayStation 5 months ago or who didn’t have time to get one at launch a few days ago?
Sorry for you, because that means you won’t be able to get one anytime soon. As confirmed by Jim Ryan, CEO of Sony, to the Russian newspaper TASS, there are no more PlayStation 5 to sell: every single retail unit produced has been sold.
” Everything has been sold. Absolutely everything has been sold. I have spent much of the last year making sure we can generate enough demand for the product. And now, as an executive, I have to spend even more time making sure I increase the offer to meet that demand. “.
Jim Ryan’s words show how proud Sony is of their marketing department and how much interest they have been able to generate in the hearts of gamers. Perhaps, considering how many people went dry-mouthed, it worked all too well.
We still don’t know how many PS5 units have been sold exactly, but if every single unit produced has really been placed, then that number must be quite high, despite the slowdowns in the production chain due to COVID.
In any case, this is the current situation: no PlayStation 5 on the horizon, at least until the next (and unknown) day of restock. Of course, it is absolutely possible to buy one today on eBay, from the numerous network touts and scalpers, at a price ranging between 800 and 10,000 euros, but we don’t have to be the one to explain why this is a bad idea.
What team are you part of? Team PS5, or Team Nothing PS5?
