Additionally, the system could come to North America much sooner than the rest of the world – provided players can grab one. Initial PS5 inventory will likely be limited at launch, either due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic crippling production or due to efforts to prevent online scalpers from buying the system in bulk and getting it on quickly to sell desperate players at a higher price.
