    Many gamers struggling to get hold of a PS5 must be scratching their heads, wondering where have all the consoles gone? 

    But Sony has released this impressive figure alongside its latest earnings report.

  • ‘GIVE US A CHANCE’

    One Twitter user has called for major retailers to communicate restock drop dates to stop websites overloading.

    “What would be good though is if the major retailers communicated with each other their drop dates and do them together, it would give everyone who still needs a PS5 a chance and would prevent their websites from overloading,” he said.

  • PS5 SHORTAGES COULD LAST INTO SUMMER

    Shortages of the PS5 and Xbox Series X could continue well into the summer, insiders have warned.

    It’s devastating news for any gamers that still haven’t managed to clinch a next-gen console.

  • ‘SHIPS DOCKING IN UK PORT WITH CONSOLES’

  • UK RETAILER SAYS MORE DROPS NEXT WEEK

    Smyth’s drop today but said more consoles will be shipped next week.

    So be prepared!

  • WHY IS IT SO DIFFICULT TO GET A PS5?

    “It is difficult for us to increase the production of the PlayStation 5 amid the shortage of semiconductors and other components,’ said Sony CFO Hiroki Totoki, according to Ars Technica.

    “We have not been able to fully meet the high level of demand from customers [but] we continue to do everything in our power to ship as many units as possible to customers who are waiting for a PS5.”

  • SONY: PS5 ‘LOSS-MAKING’

    Investors in Sony have been informed that the PlayStation 5 has so far made a loss on sales in a quarterly report.

    The report detailed the 4.5million consoles sold, and how placing them at a lower cost than manufacture, a “strategic price point”, has resulted in losses

    But when combining the PlayStation revenue from game sales across the PS4 and PS5 platforms, any shortfall is seemingly made up, according to Sony. 

    Both consoles sold similarly in their first few months of launch, with the PS4 racking up sales of 4.2million between November and December 2013.
