PS5 stock: things should improve by the end of the year, says Sony

Almost impossible to find for almost two years, the PS5 can finally be readily available. Sony has confirmed that the situation will improve soon, thanks in part to a “better supply of components”.

The PlayStation 5 has been in production since November 2020, but there has never been enough stock to keep up with the high demand from gamers. As Sony warned last year, buying a PS5 in 2022 hasn’t always been easy. With each new delivery, stocks sell like hot cakes. Even today, not every gamer has managed to get their hands on a PS5. You must constantly be on the lookout for new stocks available to hope for them to come up.

However, gamers may soon finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Sony actually expects the situation to improve in the coming months, more specifically towards the end of the year. The shortage of components is no longer as strong as, for example, last year.

‘Improved component supply’ is good news for PS5 inventory

During a conference call with investors, Sony returned to the performance of the PlayStation 5 and in particular the state of sales and inventory. Hiroki Totoki, the company’s chief financial officer, confirmed to investors that PS5 stock will rise significantly in the final months of the year. He explained that Sony is experiencing “improvement in the supply of components.”

Thus, by the end of the year, it will be easier for gamers to find PS5. It looks pretty promising for the holiday season. Many PlayStation 5s could be under the tree this year. We also shouldn’t forget about the highly anticipated PlayStation VR2, which could arrive either in late 2022 or early 2023.

Of course, you should also expect demand to increase significantly as the end of the year approaches. Even if Sony looks optimistic at the moment, it’s not certain that inventory will match demand at the end of the year. In any case, the situation will still be better than in the previous two years. As a reminder, the standard PlayStation 5 is priced at €499 versus €399 for the Digital Edition, which does not include a Blu-Ray player.
