PlayStation 5 Will be very Hard to Find Even in 2022: Sony

Sony succeeds in selling 7.8 million PlayStation 5 units worldwide and is planning to sell 14.8 million in the coming 12 months, despite the big constraints on supplies. The Japanese hardware producer however also warns of the short availability of PlayStation 5 in 2022.

The demand for the PlayStation 5 is high, but because of the global semiconductor shortage supply cannot match up to demand. Sony is no exception to this chip lack impacting a number of technology sectors alike. The group forecast that by the second half of 2021 supply will rebound, but it is not satisfied with this.

Players across the globe continue to have to expect markets to standardize even longer.

At a closed-door meeting, allegedly Hiroki Totoki, Sony Chief Financial Officer, said:

I think demand is not soothing this year and while we secure many more PlayStation units and deliver many more next year, our supply does not match the demand.

This is also positive news for Sony, though, as, amid the supply restrictions, the PlayStation 5 managed to outsource the extremely popular PlayStation 4. Sony said the market for the console was not motivated entirely by the pandemic that caused people to look to their homes for entertainment.
