It’s a wonder that the PS5 is selling so quickly, given how scarce it is. Sony, you did an excellent job. Consider how much demand is still unmet, given that the semiconductor shortages** aren’t expected to end this year.

** Veronica Rogers, SVP, Worldwide Sales and Business Operations, had this to say about global semiconductor shortages impacting PS5 unit production:

“We’re delighted to have created a revolutionary gaming experience that is engaging gamers all around the globe, despite supply difficulties and a worldwide pandemic. SIE threw all they had into making the PlayStation experience greater than it had ever been.

We owe a huge debt of gratitude to our fans for the enthusiastic response to PS5 and our expanding gaming entertainment offering. This early achievement would not have been possible without your support and trust. We’re making steady progress with worldwide supply, and we can’t wait for the day when everyone who wants a PS5 will be able to acquire one easily.”
