"We want to thank gamers everywhere for making the PS5 launch our biggest console launch ever," the tweet reads.

"Demand for PS5 is unprecedented, so we wanted to confirm that more PS5 inventory will be coming to retailers before the end of the year - please stay in touch with your local retailers."

Considering the success of the PS2 and PS4, this is an impressive milestone – doubly so when considering the current global pandemic that's undoubtedly affected supply chains.

The PS4 sold 7.6 million consoles in its first year on the market, and Sony has previously stated it expects PS5 to surpass that number in the same timeframe.

With the PS5 out now, here are some of the best launch titles you can get.

And because new consoles are expensive, here are the finest free titles, too.
