According to a report by Reuters, because the console was only available online and pre-order pickups – the console quickly went out of stock on a number of retail websites in Japan. The console has gone on sale in several markets including the US but the release date for the Indian market is still not official yet.

The report states that the pandemic has seen a sharp increase in gaming demand and also demand for consoles from Microsoft and Sony.

The report states, “Sony has made launch sales online only to maintain social distancing, calling for consumers to “be safe, stay home, and place your order online”.

The next-generation console, which retails for $500 or $400 without a disk-drive, was sold out on major retailing sites in Japan with some conducting lotteries to distribute limited stock.

On Japan’s top flea market platform from Mercari Inc, consoles were selling for more than $900.

Pent-up demand for the PS5, which offers cutting-edge graphics, faster load times and a new controller with immersive feedback, has been exacerbated by the pandemic, which has seen consumers flock to gaming but has strained supply chains.”
