PlayStation 5 Shipments to Increase as Components Shortage finally Starts To Ease
The year 2050. The PlayStation 10 was just released. Finally, the 2020’s HTML5 is now freely available for purchase after so many years.
That might be a bit dramatic, but it’s still true. It’s been over a year since the new-generation console was released, but they still seem like gold dust. It’s possible to get one if you are a dedicated stock-alert follower (or willing to pay exorbitant scalper prices), but it’s not as simple as it should be. Do you remember when you could walk into any game shop and get the console you wanted? Pepperidge Farm is still alive.
The good news is that there may be some light at the end of the tunnel. PlayStation Universe reported that a report by DigiTimes suggested that PS5 sales could increase in the second half of this year and possibly into 2023. So it seems the PS5 shipments will increase in the second half of this year and into 2023. Score!
This may be due to an improvement in the chips shortages that have caused Sony to struggle to produce enough consoles to meet demand. We saw last month that Sony had presented a financial report that showed that they projected that the PS5 would surpass the PS4 in sales by 2024. This is presumably because they believe there will be no shortages. Although it’s a little further off than in the second half, we can still expect some improvement.
There are rumors that the PS5Pro will be available at some point. This would mean it could be a more powerful console version. It may be only a matter of time, but we hope the chip shortage will be over soon.
