PlayStation 5 at retail
In a statement published last month, Sony suggested PS5 had enjoyed the biggest console launch in history after beating PS4’s record.
“We want to thank gamers everywhere for making the PS5 launch our biggest console launch ever,” it said. “Demand for PS5 is unprecedented, so we wanted to confirm that more PS5 inventory will be coming to retailers before the end of the year – please stay in touch with your local retailers.”
Xbox Series X/S also broke Microsoft’s own 24-hour launch record of over one million sales, according to the platform holder.

As with PS5, demand for Microsoft’s console is expected to outstrip supply for the foreseeable future, with Xbox head Phil Spencer recently suggesting Xbox Series X/S shortages will continue into spring 2021.
UK technology retailer Box is holding ballots to decide which customers will be able to purchase new Xbox Series X/S stock when it goes on sale later this month.
