The PS5 is one of the most popular consoles of Sony
Sony Interactive Entertainment stated that PlayStation has become one of its most popular consoles, with demand outpacing supply.
Since the launch of the system in November 2020, it has sold over 10 million units. Despite demand from gamers, Sony is still facing challenges regarding production due to a shortage of computer chips.
Demand for PlayStation 5 was expected as the gaming industry has seen a boom during the global Covid-19 pandemic which prompted people to turn to video games for entertainment. In the US, for instance, sales have reached $28.9 billion in the first half of 2021, an increase of 15% compared to the same period last year.
