PlayStation 5 shortage is officially over, Sony declares

While the launch of the PlayStation 5 was momentous, there's no denying that it was fraught with the issues that were spiralling out of the coronavirus crisis. Manufacturers couldn't source labour, suppliers couldn't source parts, and consumers couldn't source the product at the end of all of that chaos. Finally, there is positive news on the amount of PS5s out there - it only took two years.

To those who haven't picked up a PlayStation 5 yet, there's a lot to like. The use of the 3D audio was utterly nauseating in A Plague Tale: Requiem and PlayStation Plus subscribers have praised the haptics in Axiom Verge 2 that are "subtle" yet "addicting." And as for the visuals themselves, we'd say Horizon Forbidden West is one of the most eye-popping games on the console, packed with things to do and people to see. In fact, the sequel's DLC is exclusive to the PS5, which is a bit of a sauce given that the game is cross-gen, but there's a good reason for this choice.

Take a look at the trailer for the Burning Shores DLC below:

Yesterday, Sony stated that customers won't be struggling to find stock of the console anymore, and that apparently applies to the whole globe this time. “Everyone who wants a PS5 should have a much easier time finding one at retailers globally, starting from this point forward,” said PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan in the company's CES 2023 presentation, and expressed gratitude for players' patience as Sony dealt with “unprecedented demand amid global challenges over the past two years.”

Sony had tasked its best and brightest with the resolution of the shortages because, not only was it doing damage to its bottom line, it was creating more than a handful of irate consumers who had lost out to scalpers in some instances. Well, the dark days are over, and not a moment too late.
