Ryan said that it might happen that not everyone who wants to buy a PS5 on launch day can actually find one to buy. However, there will be more PS5s at launch than PS4s at launch, according to Sony. He said Sony is “working as hard as it can” to put PS5s on store shelves for holiday shopping near the end of the year.The SIE CEO also told Reuters that he will continue to grow his primary studio base organically and that Sony will add to its lineup “where we can strengthen our internal capacity with mergers and selective acquisitions (mergers and acquisitions) that may be possible.”
