It’s a new year, and Sony is declaring if you want a PS5, you should now be able to get one.

Sunday clips of a new PlayStation television ad shown on Australian television hit folk’s Twitter timelines showing Spider-Man giving gamers hope some information about Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 was coming.

It turns out that clip is a part of Sony’s new “Live From PS5” ad campaign celebrating community and welcoming more players to get in on the PlayStation 5 action.

Monday, PlayStation dropped the ad in North America while also sharing the news it would be increasing its PS5 supply.

Per The PlayStation Blog:

To all our fans: thank you for your patience as we navigated unprecedented demand for the PS5 console amid global challenges. If you’re looking to purchase a PS5 console, you should now have a much easier time finding one at retailers globally.

For players in the U.S., U.K, France, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg, be sure to check to purchase a PS5 console, games, and accessories directly from PlayStation. PS5 products are also available at participating retailers globally.

This news comes after Sony boss Jim Ryan happily announced the PS5 jig is up during the company’s CES presentation.

“Everyone who wants a PS5 should have a much easier time finding one at retailers globally, starting from this point forward,” Ryan told CES attendees.

2023 Looks Like It Will Be Another Good Year For The PS5

As for the ad, it’s an excellent one-minute spot showcasing upcoming PS5 titles like Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and Final Fantasy XVI, plus already released games and PlayStation exclusives Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Gran Turismo 7, God of War Ragnarok, Destiny 2, Horizon Forbidden West, Returnal, Ghosts of Tsushima, possibly Uncharted and more.

It sounds like PlayStation is gearing up for another stellar year. Xbox already gave its gaming base a taste of what’s to come with its recent Developer Direct presentation, where we got a shock drop with Hi-Fi Rush, which is already getting game of the year nods from players.

In a recent interview, Xbox boss Phil Spencer did not acknowledge the company did not do right by gamers and was “too light on games,” but it looks like Xbox could also have a stellar 2023 to make up for its shortcomings in 2022.
