Sony Corporation (TYO: 6758) has reported that it’s already receiving a strong demand for eagerly awaited PlayStation 5 (PS5) even weeks ahead of its official launch which is slated for November 12.
This was announced by the CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment Jim Ryan, who said they have pre-sold many PS5 consoles in the first 12 weeks in the United States compared the what they had sold for its predecessor PS4 consoles.
“The demand as expressed by the level of pre-order has been very, very considerable,” added the CEO.
Records show that Sony sold over 100 million PS4 consoles overall, task at hand now for the company is to convince users to shift to PS5 which has better features compared to PS4 in terms of sound, graphics and feedback via a new controller.
Ryan is afraid that demand of the new console might go over the roof and users may be forced to wait a bit longer for their consoles after they have placed their orders when the console will be launched in about three weeks’ time.
“It may well be that not everybody who wants to buy a PS5 on launch day will be able to find one. The company working as hard as we ever can to ensure supply for the year-end shopping season,” added Ryan.
