Sony today released a statement via Twitter, thanking gamers for the overwhelming support and for making the PS5's recent launch the biggest Sony PlayStation console launch ever.
Sony then promised to meet supply demands over the next month's holiday season. Scoring a PS5 since launch has been a huge struggle for those who weren't able to snag one of the pre-order units from retailers.
