It's been over five months since the launch of the PlayStation 5, and Sony's next-gen console is still an absolute pain in the arse to purchase. The Japanese giant says that production is still limited — a knock-on effect of the coronavirus pandemic — and as such, demand continues to completely outweigh supply. When PS5 stock does actually arrive, it tends to sell out in a matter of minutes.
The PS5 is so rare, in fact, that Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeny doesn't even have one at home. With Sony investing big bucks into the Fortnite creator these days, it seems crazy that the company's boss doesn't have personal access to a console — but that's apparently how it is.
According to Geoff Keighley, who's been keeping tabs on the Epic Games versus Apple trial, Sweeny stated that he doesn't have a PS5 at home, but he does have one in the office. That's something, at least.
Sweeny isn't the only industry figure lacking a PS5, either. Just the other day, Tekken and Bandai Namco eSports boss Katsuhiro Harada confirmed that he and his development team don't have access to PS5s outside of work. Madness!
So yeah, if you don't have your own PS5 yet, we wouldn't worry too much — not when CEOs and lead developers are also missing out on the action.
