Companies like Apple, Sony or AMD have highlighted the importance of this component for the technology industry.
One of the many reasons – perhaps the most important of all – why it has become impossible to get a PS5 and Xbox Series X | S worldwide is because lack of components, more specifically semiconductors, which are a fundamental piece in the architecture of consoles. In the United States they are aware of the existing problem and the risk it entails for the technology industry and that is the reason why the president Joe biden has ordered an investigation on the subject.
Apple, AMD and Sony consider the lack of semiconductors a national priorityThe investigation was commissioned after several companies such as Apple, Sony and AMD will launch a joint statement highlighting the importance of semiconductors in the manufacturing process of their products. They explain that these have a critical role for industry and the economy itself, as they contribute to innovation and national security. They are, in short, a national priority.
Upon this request, the United States government will carry out the investigation starting from the last 100 days. It should be noted that it will not only seek to find the cause that affected the production of semiconductors, but even propose solutions to help solve the deficiency as soon as possible.
If successful and remedied, the production of gadgets and technology items is expected to increase dramatically. Obviously, these include the manufacture of the PS5 and Xbox Series X | S, systems that today have seen their production line affected and whose supply cannot satisfy the high demand of consumers.
Sell consoles without intermediaries
Another person who has also proposed an interesting solution to the console shortage problem is John Carmack. The co-founder of id Software and Oculus consultant considers that the most ideal thing at this time would be for the manufacturers themselves to sell their products to consumers without the need for an intermediary such as stores.
