PLAYSTATION fans have predicted new stock will land at Curry’s on March 1, as the new month is expected to bring a series of restocks.
The store is one of very few major UK retailers who didn’t restock in February, which has convinced multiple Twitter stock trackers that the next month could bring a Currys console drop.
Playstation CEO Jim Ryan reassured fans that Sony are “working as hard as they possibly can” to get more stock and blamed a global shortage in semiconductors for a slow rollout that has caused prolonged misery around the world.
“I know there were people who wanted a PS5 and couldn’t find one. We’re very sorry about that and obviously grateful that demand has been as strong as it is,” he said.
“Obviously in a pandemic supply chains become a little more complicated than would normally be the case… We had to move to a distribution model that is entirely online and that’s something that we never had to do before.
“And, finally, just the level of demand for PlayStation 5. So, you know, all of those things kind of combined,” he added explaining the shortage.
