The launch of the PlayStation 5 is one of the most eagerly-anticipated console releases of all time.

Sony Interactive Entertainment’s president and CEO Jim Ryan insists, however, that the price tag of the PS5 will represent value – and does not believe that the current world health situation will necessarily affect sales. There had, in fact, been some speculation that the console would be delayed because of COVID-19, but Ryan assured fans that they can still expect to see the console later this year as planned.
