It’s an impressive feat, especially when you consider the impact that the global pandemic would have caused. Within the blog post, Veronica Rogers, Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Business Operations at SIE, had this to say about the PS5’s success:
Pushing through supply challenges and a global pandemic, we’re proud to have delivered a transformational gaming experience that is captivating players around the world. Everyone at SIE put their all into making the PlayStation experience better than ever.
We are incredibly grateful to our fans for the terrific reception of PS5 and our growing portfolio of gaming entertainment. Without your support and confidence, this early success would not have been possible. We are making steady progress with available global supply and can’t wait for the day when everyone who wants a PS5 can easily get one.
