PS5 Stock in September Was Reportedly 'Surprisingly Good'

PS5 Stock in September Was Reportedly 'Surprisingly Good' - Sales

by William D'Angelo , posted on 05 October 2022 / 3,230 Views

The head of GamesIndustry Christopher Dring has reported his retail sources say that PlayStation 5 stock in September worldwide was "surprisingly good." One of the sources say PS5 stock is the best it has has been in over a year.

"According to my retail sources, PS5 availability worldwide during September was 'surprisingly good'", said Dring. "One source told me it was the best it's been for over a year. Looking forward to seeing that data."

One Twitter user replied to Dring saying they "expect to see a record-breaking Q4 2022" for PS5 and Dring agreed.

With one week left of September to go, VGChartz estimates for September are already on par or ahead of the best-selling months for the PS5 in 2022. The last week of September saw the launch of FIFA 23, which preliminary data is showing was a strong week for PS5 sales.

I had ordered two digital ones (disc version would have been easier to get) from a smaller, independent retailer. One in April and the other in August. Suddenly, I'm getting both at the same time. I have to pay more because it's the FIFA bundle which I don't care for, but fuck it. Ready for Ragnarok, baby!

He is most likely talking about the calendar year when he said Q4.

Must not have been this good since PS5 are still being sold way above MSRP on Ebay. Maybe scalper are starting to ease a little since it isn't as profitable as before but I would not qualify the situation as 'good' in any way.

Anyone buying a PS5 on Ebay lately is either in a country that still isn't stocked well, or is just not looking hard enough. They've been available at various US retailers and on PS Direct pretty regularly for a few weeks now.

"is either in a country that still isn't stocked well" I agree and it exactly the opposite of a surprisingly good situation regarding worldwide stock isn't it. The situation is improving for sure but to say it is good is exaggerating. In Canada, as of writting this, no stock on amazon, gamestop, bestbuy or walmart. Amazon Us is still invite only.
