Just recently, the N.1 of Sony’s gaming division, Jim Ryan, announced the end of the crisis from the CES stage in Las Vegas, arguing that very soon it would become really easy to find the PS5 in stores. We are not yet in a situation of permanent availability: restocks come and go, but at a much more constant pace than in the past. When, for example, Euronics offers the PS5 in its catalog bundled with some games, the console generally remains available for at least a couple of hours, and then becomes available again within a few days.
In January 2023 – GSD data reveals – Sony sold 493,000 Playstation 5 consoles in Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Italy, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland (the United Kingdom is counted separately).
Overall, in the quarter between October and December 2022, Sony had sold 7.1 million PS5s , marking the best result ever since the console’s debut.
