Sony has always been providing new and unique experiences on PlayStation for a few decades now. While the console manufacturer has always tried to stay at the top of the race, the PS5 has certainly met those goals. While the console is still under heavy shortages and manufacturing delays, Sony has continued to sell them at a much quicker and faster volume than the PS4. Now that the PS5 is replacing the older generation, Sony can focus on manufacturing just PlayStation 5 units. In a new earnings report by Sony, the PS5 has made over 20 million unit sales, with production expected to ramp up soon.
Sony said in its statement today that it is planning on a significant ramp-up in PS5 production this year

When Does Sony Expect PS5 Supply To Stabilize?
While the console has met expectations, supply has yet to reach that height. The report also states that the PS5 was in exceptional demand compared to the PS4 launch in 2014. While the last generation device struggled to sell 80 thousand units in under two weeks, Sony’s PS5 managed that many sales and millions more in less than 2 hours. As the world still struggles with the global pandemic, shortages and delays are even present in our everyday lives. Yet this is a reality in all sectors of life, and this is true for factories and material gatherers. While the microchip shortage continues to pose new issues for manufacturers, the supply of Sony’s PlayStation 5 units might not be over for a few years. Expecting to see a return to normalcy by 2024, Sony is betting the end goal on delivering consoles when possible. As PS4 sales slump to their lowest, the demand for new systems is clear. Yet currently, the PlayStation direct queue still stands as the most reliable way to buy a PS5.
