Buying A PS5 Will Be Difficult Until At Least 2022

Buying A PS5

Buying A PS5 states that, The PlayStation 5, PS5 for friends, was launched in Europe on November 19 but for all those who did not make a reservation, getting a unit is proving much more complicated than expected. Six months after going on sale, the new Playstation remains elusive and sells out quickly when new units of either model arrive in stores.

According to Sony, this supply shortage will continue until 2022. Several reasons are preventing the company from increasing production to meet demand. The main one is the great shortage of semiconductors that affects all types of industries, from automotive to PCs through mobile phones and consoles.

The onset of the pandemic and the fear of an economic crisis resulting from it led many companies to cut their orders for processors and memory to avoid excess inventory. Now they find that demand has not suffered as much as expected, but suppliers are unable to catch up production fast enough.

The COVID-19 epidemic has also affected the transport and distribution chain, making product logistics more complex and slower.

According to Bloomberg , Hiroki Totoki, Sony's chief financial officer, has acknowledged in a private meeting with analysts and executives that the situation is serious. Although they will try to manufacture more consoles throughout the year, they will not be enough to cover the existing demand.

Sony has sold 7.8 million PS5 consoles since its launch in November and expects to sell 14.8 million units this year. That makes it a console with a very similar trajectory to that of the Playstation 4, which has become the fourth best-selling console in history with 115 million units distributed worldwide (in first place, with more than 157 million units sold, figure another Sony machine, the Playstation 2).

The situation could become especially complex at the end of the year, when Christmas shopping spikes console sales. With a more extensive catalog of games, the demand is likely to grow even more and Sony will not be able to cope with it.
