Sony sees 'very considerable' PS5 demand ahead of launch

According to Jim Ryan, CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, there is a "very considerable" demand for its PlayStation 5 (PS5) console via pre-orders. The next-generation console will be launched on November 12.

Sony pre-sold as many PS5 consoles in the first 12 hours in the United States as in the first 12 weeks for its predecessor PlayStation 4 device, said Ryan in an interview Wednesday.

Sony, which went on to sell more than 100 million PS4 units, aims to persuade its user base to upgrade to its new device to play titles like “Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales” with enhanced graphics, sound and feedback via a new controller.
