When the PlayStation 5 works perfectly, it's fantastic - playing games and even just navigating the UI feels dramatically faster compared to the PS4's sluggish ways - but I've experienced hiccups for sure.

The tweet also states that the PlayStation 5 launch has been the biggest in the company's history.

In a tweet thanking fans, the PlayStation account explained that the PS5 was "our biggest console launch ever".

TL;DR: Walmart has confirmed that they will be doing an online restock of both the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on November 25 at 6 p.m. PST/9 p.m. EST. In 2013, Microsoft said it sold more than 1 million Xbox One consoles on launch day.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 release date, rumours, features and news
Samsung has refreshed A-series lineup with the launch of Galaxy A12 and Galaxy A02s smartphones in Europe. The smartphone is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P35 processor paired with 3GB/4GB/6GB of RAM.

According to YouTuber Kevin Kenison, players can use the DS4 controller to play PS5 games via the next-gen console's remote play function.

This is not to say that these issues have disabled Sony's console output speeds. With that in mind, there will be a couple more opportunities to get a next-gen console before the end of 2020. And Xbox Series S. But Sony has also worked in a couple of other fixes - and actually told us about them, for once.

Despite the lack of figures for this year's launch, it is clear that demand is high.

If you were able to get an Xbox Series X or Series S before this moment, then good for you!
