Sony’s PlayStation 5 remains a very difficult-to-find machine, and that’s expected to stay the case for some time. PlayStation boss Jim Ryan has now responded to the PS5 restock issues, promising to work to get more in stock over time while also laying his cards on the table and informing people that they may need to be patient.
“All I can say is we’re working as hard as we possibly can,” Ryan told GQ.
Ryan pointed out that Sony sold 4.5 million PS5 consoles by the end of December, which is a bigger number than the PS4 moved over its first two months in 2013. Even despite the issues, Ryan said the PS5 had a “fairly decent” start considering the global pandemic.
