Buy PS5: delivery bottlenecks probably also next year - Sony on the current situation

Buy PS5

Buying a PS5 is still like a game of patience: Although dealers occasionally have additional stocks on sale, the - mostly small - contingents are sold out within a few minutes. It seems impossible that this situation will change significantly in the coming months. "I do not think that the demand for the PlayStation 5 will decrease this year," commented Sony CFO Hiroki Totoki, as reported by Bloomberg. At a conference with analysts, he added: "Even if we secure more devices and produce many more PS5 units in the next year, the supply will probably not be able to meet the high demand." that it is extremely unlikely to be able to resolve the supply bottlenecks of the PS5 (buy now) in the immediate future. Totoki also announced that Sony is currently investigating various ways to cope with the global chip shortage - including possible alternative hardware designs and other suppliers. "As I said before, we have set ourselves the goal of selling more PS5 consoles than the PlayStation 4 in the second year. But can we increase the offer significantly? No, that's unlikely," Totoki continues.
