Sony Just Revealed that Buying a PS5 Will be ‘Much Easier’ in 2023

The PlayStation 5 drought is officially set to end with Sony’s most coveted gaming console becoming substantially easier to obtain in 2023. In a recent blog post endorsing the premiere of its new “Live from PS5” ad series, Sony confirmed an increase in PS5 supplies, stating, “If you’re looking to purchase a PS5 console, you should now have a much easier time finding one at retailers globally.” Better late than never!

Sony has some pretty exciting releases (across both games and products) lined up for February and beyond, including the highly anticipated PlayStation VR2 and the company will need PS5s to get all these out the door. So, it’s no wonder the Japanese giant is amping up the supply to make sure that the demand is met at all times. But that’s not the only thing it’s doing.

To better promote its upcoming slew of titles and hype up audiences, Sony is calling everyone to join its new spot, “Live from PS5,” which celebrates the power of immersion that the PS5 brings to the table. “The best games often make us feel as if we are being transported into amazing worlds filled with adventure, riveting action, and memorable moments,” writes Sony.

Importantly, the announcement comes at a good time. The gaming calendar for 2023 is jam-packed with high-profile releases from both Sony and other developers, with a number of titles promising to bring large, meticulously crafted open worlds to life. And Sony is not shying away from showing off. The new ‘Live from PS5’ spot gave us our very first and best look yet at Insomniac’s Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 in full action, slated to come out sometime later this year.

The brief ad even featured live-action-like teases of other lauded PlayStation IPs such as God of War, Gran Turismo and Horizon among others. Sony also reminded fans about all the third-party games scheduled to hit PS5 this year, including titles like Assassin’s Creed Mirage, Final Fantasy XVI, Hogwarts Legacy, Resident Evil 4: Remake and Street Fighter 6.

Besides all the games, the company commented on all the headways the PS5 ecosystem is making as it grows larger and stronger with the addition of the newly released DualSense Edge wireless controller. With PS5s slowly becoming a common sight, the beginning of the end for the PS4 era has ultimately arrived. Game studios and developers have already started to migrate to modern platforms for better performance, graphics and power. So, it’s only a matter of time before Sony officially decides to retire the PS4 for good.
