PS5: Sony understands player frustration

The Playstation 5 is already a year old. At least in Japan and the USA. In Europe and Germany, the Sony console did not come onto the market until a week later. Availability was a problem from the start – and it still is today.

Among other things, this leads to insane prices for scalpers for a PS5. Now the Playstation boss Jim Ryan has spoken out on the topic and asserts that Sony understands the frustration of the players. And he reveals what the company is doing about it.

Everyone wants to buy the PS5

“We’re really focused on shipping as many consoles as possible,” says Ryan. Sony was able to sell over 13 million PS5 consoles in the first year after release. But the demand is even greater.

Demand for PS5 remains high

“I would also like to say thank you to everyone in our community for their patience. We continue to see a historically strong demand for the PS5 and we are aware that the availability is still a cause for frustration,” continues the Playstation boss.

“We do our best”

“We can assure you that we will do our best to deliver as many consoles as possible, this is what we work on every single day, everyone in the company, and that is also my personal top priority. We really appreciate your patience. We create it all together through these volatile times, “says Jim Ryan on the state of the PS5.

Millions of PS5 consoles are coming

While the Playstation 5 (buy now ) continues to be difficult to obtain, Sony even had to last Cut production by a million units. As with Nintendo with the Switch. The fault is the persistent lack of chips.

At the same time, Sony recently chartered several giant jumbo jets to ship millions of PS5 consoles to Europe. The availability could get a little better in the current Christmas business at least temporarily.
