Video games have seen immense enhancements in terms of visuals and performance. Creating large open worlds with awe-inspiring details was considered improbable just a few decennia ago. This feat would not have been possible without the new robust consoles like the PlayStation 5. However, the voyage has been full of hurdles for Sony.
The ever-increasing demand has boosted the sales of PlayStation 5 to the moon. The console has sold over 100,000 units since last year, and the total number of units sold has reached 20 million pieces globally in just a few years since its inception. Despite a large number of sales, the console has seen issues like chip shortages that resulted in the lack of stock.
The deficiencies in stock have caused most gamers not to receive a PlayStation 5. However, Sony has been working hard to tackle the issues of stock all over the world. The stock has reportedly started improving, and more gamers have been able to buy a PS5 in recent months. In other good news, PlayStation 5 has also been spotted in stores across Germany. Retailer stores across Germany have started receiving PS5s in bulk.
A NeoGaf forum thread created by the member, Shtef, discusses his good experience while visiting a German retail store. Shtef cites, “I was in media markt in Berlin yesterday and for the first time in my life i saw ps5 on shelf. As people were grabbing them the staff would take out new consoles and replenish the stock, looks like they have a lot.”
According to Shtef, the employees supplied the stock just as fast as the PlayStation 5’s were being sold. A few weeks ago, the USA and UK also saw improved PS5 stocks. Likewise, the German region has also started seeing bulks of stock arrive in the retail stores. The PlayStation 5 consoles reportedly come with Horizon Forbidden West bundled with them. Media Markt makes its own bundles.
The CEO of Sony, Jim Ryan, has repeatedly stated that 2022 would replenish the PlayStation 5 stocks all over the world. Jim stated a couple of months ago, “I want gamers to know that while we continue to face unique challenges throughout the world that affect our industry and many others, improving inventory levels remains a top priority for SIE.”
While discussing the recent increase in PS5 prices due to high inflation rates, Sony also elaborated on the stock situation again. The PlayStation Blog stated, “While this price increase is a necessity given the current global economic environment and its impact on SIE’s business, our top priority continues to be improving the PS5 supply situation so that as many players as possible can experience everything that PS5 offers and what’s still to come.”
PlayStation 5 is undoubtedly one of the best-selling consoles in the world, flying off the shelves despite having supply issues all over the world. Sony’s latest tower of power delivers many fan-favorite exclusives while providing ample upgrades over the PlayStation 4.
