Sony Confirms PS5 Was Its Biggest Launch – Promises More Stock Soon

Sony says the PS5 has indeed been the company’s biggest launch in PlayStation history. This confirms the reports that the console managed to sell over 2.5 million units across both 12 and 19 November launch days. The company has also announced that more PS5 stock will be coming to retailers before the end of the year. However, don’t get your hopes up just yet.

The announcement was made on Twitter where the official US PlayStation account shared the news saying;

We previously reported that the PS5 managed to push an estimate 2.5 million units during its launch days worldwide. Sony also hopes to sell even more PlayStation 5 consoles than they did PS4 units within the same fiscal year period. The PS4 sold 7.6 million units in its first year so the PS5 is off to a great start.

But the lack of PS5 stock is a major issue that is crippling the success of the console. Worldwide, users are struggling to get their hands on a unit. Scalpers are grabbing the little stock there is available and selling them at extremely high prices. In SA, both stock drops sold out within minutes of going live. Most South Africans had no idea these pre-order opportunities were even available at retailers. There’s also no word yet when the third wave of PS5 stock will arrive in SA.

Yes, the PlayStation account may urge customers to check with their local retailers but that does not mean South African retailers. This account is the US PlayStation handle so don’t get your hopes up just yet. However, we will share the news as soon as we hear about the third wave of PS5 stock in South Africa.
