As Sony prepares to officially announce pricing for the upcoming PlayStation 5 console, Bloomberg reported that there could be potential trouble behind the scenes. According to its story, Sony reduced its production estimate from 15 million units to 11 million.
Console was cited as one of the reasons that poor SoC production was poor, but Sony stepped in to refute the reports.
While we do not release details related to manufacturing, the information provided by Bloomberg is incorrect. The production numbers for the PlayStation 5 have not changed since we started mass production. ‘
It is notable that the initial targets reported by Bloomberg were less than 5-6 million, so it is clear that a lot of estimates are included.
It is expected that Sony will be able to make enough PS5 consoles to meet the inevitable increase in demand during the holiday season. In the meantime, you should check back tomorrow for the prices of the PlayStation 5 and the digital version of the console (which is without a Blu-ray drive).
Rival Microsoft is set to release the $ 300 / € 300 Xbox Series S and $ 500 / € 300 Series X on November 10 (and fans will be able to pre-order starting on September 22). In the meantime Nintendo is teasing a 4K version of Switch for next year.
