The PS5 has been performing strongly in the US since stock became readily available in early 2023, and has frequently come out on top as the leading hardware performer each month. Prior to that, the console was plagued by heavy stock shortages brought on by the coronavirus pandemic following the system’s launch in November 2020.

Looking ahead, it is heavily rumoured that Sony will be releasing a more powerful version of the machine, dubbed PS5 Pro, later this year.
