Ryan said that it may end up that not everybody who wants to purchase a PS5 on launch day will be able to actually find one to purchase. There will be, however, more PS5s at launch than there were PS4s at launch, according to Sony. He said Sony is “working as hard as we ever can” to get PS5s on store shelves for holiday shopping near the end of the year.The SIE CEO also told Reuters that it will continue to grow its staple of first-party studios organically and that Sony will add to its lineup “where we can bolster our in-house capability with selective M&A (merging and acquisition) that might be possible.”
Ryan said all of this the same day that initial previews went up for the PS5 and you can check out IGN’s PS5 coverage of that here. Read about our PS5 unboxing experience and then watch us unbox the PS5 DualSense controller and all of the other PS5 accessories. Check out our hands-on preview with Astro’s Playroom after that to find out why we think the DualSense is a fun evolution of the PlayStation controller.
