Many people, especially gamers, are always looking for a solution to fulfill their gaming adventure. When Sony Interactive Entertainment released the PS5 last year on November 12th, 2020 in the United States, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea, including the United Kingdom, which got the console on November 19, 2020, people got really excited!

What Is PS5

Sony Interactive Entertainment's PlayStation 5 (PS5) is a video game console intended for home gaming.
The PlayStation 5 was announced in 2019 as the successor to the PlayStation 4, along with Microsoft's Xbox Series X and Series S consoles, the PS5 is part of the ninth generation of video game consoles, which were introduced in the same month.
An optical disc drive compatible with Ultra HD Blu-ray discs is included in the base model. The Digital Edition is devoid of this drive, making it a more affordable option for people who want to purchase games via digital download. Both variations were released at the same time.
The PlayStation 5's main hardware features include a solid-state drive optimized for high-speed data streaming, an AMD GPU capable of 4K resolution displays at up to 120 frames per second, hardware-accelerated ray tracing for realistic lighting and reflections, and the Tempest Engine, which enables hardware-accelerated 3D audio effects. The DualSense controller with haptic feedback and backward compatibility with most PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR titles are also included.
But suddenly, they were out of stock.
In the last year 2021, according to Sony, for many users, getting a PS5 has been difficult since launch, and it appears that it will continue to be difficult beyond the first year of the console's lifespan.

The Cause Of Out-Of-Stock

Pandemic Outbreak

If you're wondering why the PS5 is so difficult to obtain for non-famous people, it's due to a pandemic-induced global chip shortage, and increased demand for entertainment technology from those who have been stuck at home for the better part of two years.

Lack Of Bot Defense

On December 30th, it appears that Amazon is already sold out due to an astounding lack of bot defenses. Bot defense helps identify and mitigate attacks before they cause damage to the site. Sony's latest gaming console, the PlayStation 5, is one of many gaming gadgets that are currently out of stock due to mostly online-only sales.

Good News

The good news is that the PS5 console is finally back once again in some countries! They will re-stock the item in some places, especially in markets.

Where Can I Get PS5 In 2022

Since their release at the end of last year, the PS5 has been troubled by supply shortages, which are rooted in a combination of chip shortages and operational issues caused by the pandemic. The word from Sony on console shortages hasn't been good.
But other countries in 2022 are going to re-stock the PS5. Here are the lists of markets that sell PS5 in 2022 and when you can possibly buy it.
