Good Luck Shopping For a PlayStation 5 – “Everything is sold”
Chances are a PlayStation 5 was probably on someone you knows wish list. If you were planning on making those wishes come true for them this holiday season, good luck! According to Sony's Interactive Gaming CEO there are no more.
CEO Jim Ryan says, "Everything is sold. Absolutely everything is sold. I’ve spent much of the last year trying to be sure that we can generate enough demand for the product. And now in terms of my executive bandwidth, I’m spending a lot more time on trying to increase supply to meet that demand.”
The PlayStation has been incredibly sought-after since it's release almost two weeks ago. Since then, the console is not "consistently been in stock" anywhere on the market at any retailers. There are no official numbers being reported in terms of sales but the point is, the demand is much, more higher than the supply.
You can guarantee the PS5 will be one of the hottest ticket items this Black Friday considering that is probably going to be anyone's next-best chance to score one. Best Buy is advertising that it will have "limited quantities" available on Black Friday. Meanwhile, both the PS5 and Xbox have been listed as sold out for months on the store's website. It appears, Walmart will have some in stock on that day as well. Your second best option is searching on eBay but that's only if you're willing to cough up thousands of dollars in some extreme cases.
This doesn't mean that you'll never have any other chance to get your hands on one of these ever again. You just probably won't have one before the end of the holiday season. "The pandemic has hurt PS5 production." Ryan went on to say, "I wouldn’t plan on doing another big console launch in the midst of a global pandemic. And I wouldn’t recommend it to anybody else.”
