Sony Says the PS5 is its Biggest Console Launch Ever, More Inventory Coming Before Year Ends
With the success of the PS4 and the lack of hiccups during its initial marketing phase, no wonder the PS5 has become the biggest console launch for Sony.
The demand for the PS5 is pretty darn high right now. I was lucky enough to secure a pre-order when they were first listed. However, there are plenty of other gamers out there who still haven’t been able to secure one. This makes me inclined to believe Sony when it states that the PS5 was its biggest console launch ever.
The official PlayStation Twitter account tweeted this morning that the demand for its new PlayStation console has been “unprecedented” and that they would like to thank gamers around the world for making it the company’s biggest console launch ever.
If you are one of those people out there who have had some trouble snagging a PS5, Sony also mentioned that more inventory will be coming to retailers before the end of the year.
We want to thank gamers everywhere for making the PS5 launch our biggest console launch ever. Demand for PS5 is unprecedented, so we wanted to confirm that more PS5 inventory will be coming to retailers before the end of the year – please stay in touch with your local retailers.

It is not surprising to see the PS5 become the biggest launch ever for the company. The PS4 had one of the greatest catalogs of games out of any console, was one of the top-selling consoles ever, and grew the PlayStation player base even more than what it once was. Plus, Demon Souls and Miles Morales at launch was an extra nail to really drive those initial first sales.
If you are still on the hunt for a PS5, here is some advice for you. Make sure to enable notifications for the Twitter account Wario64. They are always one step ahead of the game and will Tweet whenever an online retailer has stock available. It is how I got my console.
