It’s a bad news for all the gamers who were waiting for their Sony PS5 consoles. CEO Jim Ryan confirmed that the PlayStation 5 is completely sold out despite his best efforts to have enough stock, according to Russia’s Tass.
“Everything is sold. Absolutely everything is sold,” he said. “I’ve spent much of the last year trying to be sure that we can generate enough demand for the product. And now… I’m spending a lot more time on trying to increase supply to meet that demand.”
The biggest issue caused by the pandemic was in pre-production, according to Ryan. Because of travel and other restrictions, “we had to do all the manufacturing preparation by camera remotely,” he said. “I mean, just imagine that for a precision device like the PlayStation 5.”
Furthermore, he expressed his relief at the success of the console during a difficult year, but he added that the product and sales would have likely been the same! “The way we took it to market might have been a bit different, but the actual product would have been the same, we might have had a few more to sell, but not very many; the guys on the production/manufacturing side have worked miracles,” he concluded.
And now, we wait!
