GameStop Announces One-Day Event for PS5


On Saturday, May 28, GameStop stores in the USA will hold a one-day event where PowerUp Rewards Pro participants will be able to purchase PS5 kits in the store.

Since then, PlayStation-branded equipment has also maintained a high sales rate: as of December 31, 2021, more than 17.3 million units have been sold. 2022.
