The launch of the PlayStation 5 is quite annoying, but it’s still a phenomenal sales success for Sony.

Demand is high, scalpers, website crashes, delivery delays, among some Amazon customers It’s undeniable that the release of the PlayStation 5 was a bit annoying, receiving a bag of rice instead.

However, although there is no official statement from Sony, the release of PlayStation 5 still seems to be a huge success for the company.

The term comes from Christopher Dring on GamesIndustry.biz. He suggests that the PlayStation 5 console could be the largest console launch ever.

When asked if Sony’s lack of consoles meant underestimating it, Dring suggested that there was always a limit, and there were only so many factories and components that needed a number of consoles.

And while there is no doubt that the coronavirus pandemic will affect production, Dring adds, this is more than Sony could produce in previous launches.

According to Dring, the PS5 sold more than the PlayStation 4, and currently holds the honor of being the best-selling console in the UK ever.

But if what Dring heard was accurate, the PlayStation 5 could have taken its place, even though it was released under much tougher conditions.

I can certainly believe it. When the pre-order was first published, the PlayStation 5 sold more in 12 hours than the PlayStation 4 sold in 12 days.

PlayStation 5 is now available (technically, if in stock).
