Early adopters might not have to line up for the PlayStation 5 like they did for the PlayStation 4. Reports in Nikkei and Bloomberg, both citing anonymous sources, say that Sony plans to increase production of the upcoming console from around 5 or 6 million to roughly 10 million units.

I imagine that’s going to doubly true for the Digital Edition. I don’t think I’ll be getting a PS5 at launch; but if I did, it would be the Digital Edition (since virtually all of my video game purchases have been digital for a while now). But there are so many people who are either hanging on tightly to physical media or who just want the option of it that I can easily imagine that a lot of Digital Edition PS5s will be hanging around in warehouses and on store shelves.
