Jim Ryan is saddened that we cannot offer enough consoles for all gamers.

All this in the midst of a pandemic and with a global shortage of components, which makes it even more meritorious. Still, on PlayStation they regret not being able to meet all the demand yet what is there for your next-generation console.
In an interview for Reuters, following the announcement of the new console sales milestone, the president of the brand, Jim ryan, talks about the current production pace of PS5. The Tokyo company has not stopped increasing the volume of manufacture of the machine since 2020, but still far from reaching the level they would like.

Jim Ryan feels bad about not matching the demand yetWhile it is true that selling 10 million consoles in less than 9 months It is a monumental achievement, surpassing even the initial sales rate of Nintendo Switch, on PlayStation they are not satisfied with it. And it is undeniable that the demand for consoles generation is far superior to the supply available, pleasantly boosted by the pandemic.
An example of this is that their competition, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, are not doing bad either: according to Microsoft, they are also the fastest-selling Xbox in their history.

With all the consoles in a state of grace, we will see if the companies manage to increase production in the coming months to meet all this demand.
