The PS5 was officially launched on November 12, 2020, in the US and a few other countries. Jim Ryan, president, and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment marked the occasion with some statistics and a preview of the console’s upcoming releases.
“A year seems to have flown by rather quickly since the first day that gamers were able to get their hands on PS5 — and I am deeply honored and humbled to celebrate this amazing first year with all of you.”
– Jim Ryan, President and CEO of Sony

“I also want to thank everyone in the community for your patience. We continue to see historic demand for PS5 and we understand the inventory constraints remain a source of frustration for many of our customers.
Rest assured that we are laser-focused on doing everything in our power to ship as many units as possible, it’s something we work on every day across the company and remains my top priority. Again, we appreciate your patience as we navigate through these unprecedented global challenges.”
