Sony says PS5 pre-order demand has been ‘very high’

“The demand as expressed by the level of pre-order has been very considerable,” Sony’s gaming boss told Reuters.

According to Ryan, the company took as many PS5 pre-orders in the first 12 hours in the US as it did in the first 12 weeks for the PS4.

Ryan said Sony is “working as hard as we ever can” to meet demand but that “it may well be that not everybody who wants to buy a PS5 on launch day will be able to find one.”

Sony is gearing up to launch PS5 on November 12 in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea, and on November 19 in the rest of the world.
