PS5: Low stock, but has already sold more than PS Vita, WiiU and Dreamcast


PS5 since it was released turns out to be a real "damned console", almost impossible to buy. All of this is obviously due to the pandemic which, by slowing down production, has led to few units being available with an incredible shift between supply and demand. Despite all this, there are many countries that are reporting quite high numbers in these first five months, such as the UK for example. of PS Vita, Wii U and Dreamcast. To reveal all this is the journalist of, Christopher Dring, who would have specified that the number is on the totality of the consoles sold in their entire life span, which makes this a certainly crazy result despite the fact that these three consoles do not have had a very simple life.

These are not consoles that have had resounding success, given the many problems of marketing and choices they have suffered over the years, but it is curious to see how in the course of little time despite the problem of PS5 stocks has managed to destroy yet another record regarding sales. We are confident that when the situation stabilizes once and for all the issue will change dramatically. Obviously this also refers to the Xbox Series X which, despite the same problem, has managed to sell enough in these first months of life.

Fun fact. PlayStation 5 in the UK has already sold more than Wii U, PlayStation Vita and Sega Dreamcast

If you have not yet managed to purchase a next gen platform, unfortunately you will have to wait a little longer. In fact, it would seem that the issue of low stocks is also due to some components that, although at an economic level, have a really ridiculous price, they are made using obsolete production methods, inevitably slowing everything down and therefore representing a big problem. In short, time to time, sooner or later we are sure that you will be able to buy one to be able to officially enter this new gaming experience.

Pending the availability of PS5, at this Amazon address you can buy PS4.
