That pre-orders of PlayStation 5 had started with a bang it was understood from the first moment, indeed, from the first minute, a time necessary to completely run out of stocks of the first wave on the well-known Amazon portal, effectively establishing a new and exciting record for the company. That's not all though, in fact the CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, Jim Ryan, stated that in the USA, as many quantities of PlayStation 12 were pre-ordered in the first 5 hours available as those sold by PS4 in the first 12 weeks of life.

The demand from the pre-order level has been very, very considerable. Said the CEO.

Although the historical moment is not the best, due to the Coronavirus pandemic that has damnably undermined the global economy, users have expressed a huge desire to buy the console since day one, a desire that unfortunately could vanish precisely as a result of production problems. generated by the epidemic.

It may be that not everyone who wants to buy a PS5 on launch day will be able to find one. We are working as hard as possible. We are definitely looking up and thinking we can do better than we thought we could do before.

Although pre-orders have been available since mid-September, Sony has been harshly criticized for the way it failed to handle the sheer amount of demand it received, saying it would ensure day one consoles arrive for all users. it will certainly not be possible. The company soon apologized to consumers, but the second wave of pre-orders wasn't all that different. Sony finally stated that it will increase the production of the console trying to satisfy as many people as possible at least until the Christmas period, generally the most profitable and with the most demand, clashing with the demand for Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
