The PS5 is fast approaching its second birthday, and the bloody thing is still difficult to track down — but there are signs that things are finally starting to get better. Over the last month or so in particular, PS5 stock hasn't been selling out almost immediately, like it was before (through most websites, at least). Instead, we've noticed that some queues — like the ones that Sony hosts on its official online store — can last a few hours at a time. It's clear that either consumer demand isn't quite as rabid as it was, or PS5 production has improved to some extent. Or both!
Of course, we've still got a long way to go. You can't, for example, just hop on Amazon and grab a PS5 at your leisure — and you're probably not going to see the current-gen console casually sitting on store shelves anytime soon — but we may have hit something of a turning point. It'll be interesting to see if the stock situation continues to improve over the coming months, as we get closer and closer to the holidays.
Sony itself also expects PS5 stock to become more readily available in the relatively near future — as noted in the company's latest financial report. This is something that the Japanese giant predicted back in May, so it would seem as though that prediction is starting to come true. Let's hope it stays that way, eh?
