The Playstation 5 along with the Xbox Series X|S have been in high demand and still difficult to obtain for over a year. According to a report from Bloomberg citing sources close to Sony’s internal operations, the global chip shortage is continuing to impact Playstation 5 production.
The chip shortage is so severe that Sony had to cut production of 16 million PS5s by in the year ending March 2022 down to 15 million. That is a shortfall of 1 million consoles, which is nothing to sneeze at.
Looks like it’s going to continue to be difficult to land the coveted console for a little longer.
