Where can I buy a Playstation 5?
For most of 2022, finding a retailer with the PS5 in stock was difficult due to global supply chain issues. While we can’t predict future availability, as of January 2023, you can find the Playstation 5 in stock at most major retailers in the US and directly from Playstation’s website. In fact, availability has been steadily increasing since November 2022.
Can you play PS4 games on the PS5?
According to the Playstation support site, the majority of PS4
games can be played on the PS5 and some of them will actually run with a higher and smoother frame rate thanks to the PS5’s Game Boost feature.
How many Playstation 5 consoles were sold in 2022?
According to Sony during a press conference, about 30 million units of PS5 were sold by the end of December 2022. This is slightly higher than the approximate 20 million units of the Xbox Series X reportedly sold in 2022.
Is the Playstation 5 worth it?
There’s a good reason why the PS5 has been so popular since its release in November 2020 - Sony made some truly game-changing improvements over the PS4. The PS5 has better graphics performance with strong 4K capabilities, much improved and faster loading times, exceptional cooling and a new controller for a more immersive gaming experience. While the price has not dropped in the 2 years since its release, most new gaming consoles normally fall in the $300-500 range, so overall the PS5 might be a worthwhile upgrade for most gamers.
