A good interview tour has made Jim Ryan. The head of PlayStation has revealed that more exclusive titles from their consoles coming to PC and also has released the bombshell of the announcement of a new virtual reality device for PS5.
Thanks to your words in The Washington Post and the Financial times, we have learned that the future of the stock of the new generation consoles, in the short term, looks quite dark. “Demand was higher than we anticipated“explains Ryan.” That, coupled with the complexities of supply chain issues, resulted in a slightly smaller offering. “
However, the manager believes that this situation “will improve every month throughout 2021.” It seems that the supply will start to accelerate, as “the pace will increase throughout the year, by the time we get to the second half of 2021, we will see really decent numbers.”
Apparently the PS5 stock shortage is due to the semiconductor chips needed for their manufacture also suffer from their own shortage, something of what Hiroki Totoki already spoke. The pandemic has aggravated this situation since its inception last year, something that is affecting car and smartphone manufacturers.
On the other hand, it has lamented the speculation of its products, especially through organized groups that use bots to get a large number of units by skipping the queues at retail stores. However, Ryan has not ventured to promise that there will be enough stocks in the holiday season from 2021 for all possible demand. “There are very few magic wands that can be waved,” warns the head of the brand.
This problem has also affected the competition, Microsoft. Mike spencer also revealed that it is most likely that the stock of Xbox series x Y Xbox Series S I would continue in this situation until at least June.
