The head of GamesIndustry Christopher Dring via Twitter has announced PlayStation 5 stock in the UK has improved a lot so far in 2023 compared to last year.
PlayStation 5 sales in the UK nearly doubled in January year-on-year with sales up 98 percent.
"PS5 stock coming thick and fast. In January in the UK, PS5 sales were up over 98% compared with the same month last year," said Dring. "This week, God of War Ragnarok is No.2 in the charts… and that’s due to rising stock levels."

It's almost as if sales and supply are intimately entwined.
I'm very curious to see when/where we are going to see demand and supply matching.
i sure thought the XSeries would stay close but as PS5 stock is raising the gap is getting bigger between the 2
They need this to happen everywhere to hit their huge af target.
They need sales from Jan, Feb and Mar to triple everywhere, last year was 2 million for the quarter and they're aiming for 6 million.
I thought they said they were aiming for 19 million for the next financial year. Up on this year's so 6 million seems unlikely.
Remembering Q3 they achieved 7.1M so they would need to be very close to their holiday season to achieve it, and that is about 2.5-3x what they done in the same quarter last year. It will be though.
They shipped 2mil in the same quarter last year. So they'd need more than 3× what they did then.
Normally, I’d say there’s no way Jan-March would come even close to holiday Oct-Dec, but iirc Sony shipped 7mil despite achieving consistent supply only starting in December. Anyone know what they sold Oct-Nov? I feel like w they released some numbers but not sure.
Series beating PS was bogus from twitter fanboy pretending to have leaks. PS5 was the leader in revenue and Switch was the leader in units.
Ps5 is still one of most desired techs right now!
Selling like hot cakes if it's available everywhere,
They woulda left the series x in the dust if there weren't any issues.
I don't remember how bad inventory was last year in January, but well 98% increase should put this month a good number.
