PS5 supply problems will continue in 2022
Sony reports the highest demand, many times higher than the supply, for the Playstation 5.
At the same time, there will be problems with supplies in 2022.
Sony has warned a group of analysts that supply problems will continue throughout this year and next. At the same time, the company will do everything possible to increase sales goals, and sales of games and exclusives depend on this in turn.
Despite all the problems, Sony was able to deliver 7.8 million game consoles in the first year, which is 200 thousand more than in the case of the playstation 4 for the same period. The company plans to sell up to 15 million consoles this year. The company focuses on the sales rates of the last generation. In total, almost 116 million Playstation 4s have been sold so far.
At the same time, the company sees a great demand for its game consoles, which fly like hot cakes. Unfortunately, the japanese corporation cannot say when deliveries and production will be established, and sales will normalize.
Of course, the success of the new generation of consoles was also spurred by the coronavirus pandemic, when the demand for all types of home entertainment increased many times.
Interestingly, another company, Nintendo, reported last week that its business could also be affected by problems with the supply of microelectronics elements. The japanese company has changed its forecast for next year. Now, by the end of the fiscal year (that is, until april 2022), the company plans to sell 25.5 million consoles, which is lower than this year, which was successful, including thanks to the release of the game animal crossing. At the same time, the interlocutor of bloomberg said that the company aims to produce 28-29 million game consoles and thus also expects high demand.
