ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES:
Sony has reportedly told analysts that it expects PS5 consoles to be in short supply until 2021.
“I don’t think demand is calming down this year and even if we secure a lot more devices and produce many more units of the PlayStation 5 next year, our supply wouldn’t be able to catch up with demand,” CFO Hiroki Totoki said at an analyst briefing this month, according to Bloomberg.
Publicly PlayStation is offering a more hopeful outlook on PS5 supply. “We’re working as hard as we can to ameliorate that situation,” Sony Interactive Entertainment boss Jim Ryan told Wired last week.
“We see production ramping up over the summer and certainly into the second half of the year, and we would hope to see some sort of return to normality in terms of the balance between supply and demand during that period.”
Sony will reportedly start production on a PS5 hardware redesign in 2022. That’s according to Taiwanese business website DigiTimes, which claims that suppliers including semiconductor foundry TSMC are planning to start producing the redesigned PS5 console between the second and third quarters of next year.
