In a recent interview with Russia’s TASS, Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan boasted that every PlayStation 5 has been sold. “Everything is sold,” he claimed. “Absolutely everything is sold. And everything will be sold in Russia, there’s no doubt about that.”

We’re not sure how true that actually is, as we’ve been seeing some decent restocks among popular retailers, but those of you who haven’t had luck finding a PS5 should be glad to hear that Sony is definitely getting more on shelves before the new year.

“We want to thank gamers everywhere for making the PS5 launch our biggest console launch ever,” the official PlayStation account tweeted this morning. “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.”

Sony hasn’t revealed how many PS5 consoles have been sold yet, but it must be a massive number. That’s because the PS4 managed to sell more than 2.1 million in just a few weeks when it launched in November 2013.
