It is still very difficult to use PS5 immediately. Although buyers are still struggling to find a wilderness system, it seems that Sony is doing its part to alleviate at least some of the inventory problems that plague retailers.
In fact, if you can believe that there will be new reports, then PS5 stock may recover in the coming months.
According to the report, Sony plans to ship 16.8 million to 18 million units in 2021, which will be achieved as supply increases. Digitimes said that Sony initially shipped 3.4 million PlayStation 5 units within the first month of listing.
Thanks to the more availability of the components required to put the PS5 into production, this number will continue to grow substantially. This means that the replenishment of PS5 may be fully functional, hoping to end the need to purchase systems from scalpers or track inventory alerts.
Digitimes said that AMD, which provides customized 7-nanometer CPUs for the PS5, has ensured the additional capacity of the semiconductor foundry TSMC (TSMC) to increase production. This should contribute to a 40% to 50% increase in monthly service production, which means that by 2021
The CPU is based on AMD’s Ryzen Zen 2 architecture and Radeon RDNA2 GPU. Both China Tongfu Microelectronics Co., Ltd. and Taiwan Silicon Precision Industry Corporation divide the back-end manufacturing responsibilities into 70/30. Sony plans to reserve more PS5s for the Asian region after January 2021. Thanks to these additional components, this will undoubtedly alleviate the frustration that global buyers cannot join the latest generation of consoles.
Previous reports indicate that Sony originally planned to ship 10 million PS5 units before March 2021, so 3.4 million units are indeed in short supply. In the past, Sony originally planned to ship only about 5 million and 6 million units by March, but as demand grew, it changed the direction of development.
With the advent of more components, more PS5 devices will be put on the market and delivered to customers, it seems that more users will eventually be able to personally experience the system. In the PS5 evaluation, we awarded the PS5 4.5 stars, calling it “the future of console games.”
“If you manage to buy a PS5 now, please know that you will get a true next-generation experience, including advanced haptics, beautiful graphics, and almost zero friction with the game you want to play.”
If Digitimes’ sources are correct, emotions such as “managing” to acquire PS5 may soon be a thing of the past.
