In the US, GameStop will be selling PS5 consoles at some of its stores this Friday, October 22.
US-based consumers hoping to purchase a PS5 console can also now register their interest directly with Sony for a chance to do so. The company is making a limited number of PS5 consoles available for customers to purchase directly from PlayStation this holiday season.
Sony claimed in July that PS5 had become its fastest selling console ever after topping 10 million sales globally.
The console reached the milestone in mid-July, about eight months after its November 2020 launch, and just under a month faster than the PS4 managed.

“While PS5 has reached more households faster than any of our previous consoles, we still have a lot of work ahead of us as demand for PS5 continues to outstrip supply,” Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan said at the time.
“I want gamers to know that while we continue to face unique challenges throughout the world that affect our industry and many others, improving inventory levels remains a top priority for SIE.”
