Since the PS5 launched in late 2020, it's been pretty difficult to actually get your hands on one. With various issues contributing to a PS5 stock shortage, fans eager to play Sony's newest console have been struggling to find the machine for the first couple of years. Demand has been much higher than supply all this time, but it looks like the platform holder is turning things around in 2023.

Writing on the PS Blog, PlayStation's Isabelle Tomatis assures that the console's elusive days are over. "To all our fans: thank you for your patience as we navigated unprecedented demand for the PS5 console amid global challenges," she says. "If you’re looking to purchase a PS5 console, you should now have a much easier time finding one at retailers globally."

Tomatis recommends you check PlayStation's official online store, but also says third party retailers will have PS5 consoles and accessories available.

This stock refresh comes alongside a new TV spot called Live from PS5. Presented like a news broadcast, the live-action promo showcases various games either out now or coming soon to the console. It looks like this will be a big new marketing push for the hardware as the stock situation begins to resolve.
